    Electronic producer, singer and songwriter Alvin Risk appeared at Webster Hall’s weekly Friday night dance party on January 16th. Girls and Boys, as the event is known, hosts some of the biggest rising names in the EDM world (Knife Party will throw down on the 23rd), but Risk’s show was even more impressive as he was featuring songs […] More

    Ski Lodge @ Nola, Darling

    I first heard about the indie-pop jams of Ski Lodge a few months ago from a short Asian man who looked about 25 and turned out to be closer to 50. We were waiting with a couple thousand other people for the opportunity to be told we would not be getting into Death By Audio’s final […] More

    Get Funky With Tuxedo, Mayer Hawthorne’s Flashback To The ’70s

    Ah, remember those nights jamming out in the discotheque to Earth, Wind & Fire and The Commodores? Your sweaty palms nervously smoothing out the creases in your flamboyantly colored, polyester skin-tight suit as you try to work up the courage to ask the club’s resident soul goddess for a dance. Wait a second – no? You’re drawing […] More

    An Interview With Dark Waves

    Valentine’s Day has passed us by, but if you still find yourself pining for your former lover, perhaps it is time to light a couple of candles, grab a big bottle of wine and a fat joint, and put on the moody, atmospheric indie pop of Dark Waves. The well-crafted songs may not necessarily cheer you […] More

    Mystery Skulls @ Terminal 5

    Friday night may have been blisteringly cold, but that didn’t stop electronic fans from storming Terminal 5 and grooving along to Mystery Skulls’ bouncing jams. The January 30th concert took place amid winter warnings on one of the chilliest nights in recent memory; one had to be almost… cold-hearted to not feel a tinge of sympathy for the […] More

    Go: Mystery Skulls @ Terminal 5

Mystery Skulls, the electronic indie pop project formed by Luis Dubuc, will be crashing into the city this Friday, January 30th, for a show at Terminal 5. Tickets are still available and since you don’t have Snowpocalypse 2015 to worry about anymore, you should […] More

    Invisible Familiars At Bar Lunatico

    Invisible Familiars, a quirky psyche-folk-rock group led by New York multi-instrumentalist singer songwriter Jared Samuel, just finished up a three week Friday night residency at the recently opened Bar Lunatico in Bed Stuy. The group performed songs from their upcoming debut album, Disturbing Wildlife, which will be released on January 27th via Other Music, and a series […] More

    Jib Kidder – Teaspoon To The Ocean

    Don’t try and place particular labels on multi-instrumentalist Jib Kidder and his music. He certainly doesn’t. On his bandcamp page, his concise profile reads, in its entirety, “No genre, no hometown, hard 2 pin down since Y2K.” Over the years the artist, born as Sean Schuster-Craig but who performs as Jib Kidder, has seemed to change his style as […] More

    An Interview With Weyes Blood

    Natalie Mering, better known as the principal force behind indie-folk band Weyes Blood, creates music that would probably sound just as home in the ’60s as it does from a stage in 2014. Earlier this month, Mering played Glasslands and her ethereal voice transported the crowd (or at least this writer) to a time when most likely had never […] More

    How To Dress Well At Glasslands

    Tom Krell, better known by his stage name How to Dress Well, usually plays larger venues than Glasslands these days, but he took time out of his schedule to play one of the final shows at the soon-to-be-closed Williamsburg haunt. The Tuesday night (Dec. 16) concert brought Krell back to the place where he played one of his very […] More

    Suckers At Glasslands

    Brooklyn psych pop outfit Suckers performed at Glasslands on Thursday, and Punchland was on hand to check out the action. The band covered mostly songs from its 2012 LP, Candy Salad, including a kick ass version of single “Turn on the Sunshine.” Unfortunately, the show was a tinged with a bittersweet note because, as you […] More

    Go: RL Grime @ Terminal 5

    If it feels like you’ve been hearing RL Grime everywhere these days, then you aren’t alone. The 23-year-old electronic artist, who also records under the name Clockwork, has ridden a tidal wave of high-profile remixes (Kanye, Rihanna, Chief Keef, Benny Benassi, etc.) and well-received bangers to become one of the rising stars of the EDM-trap movement. He also […] More
