Brooklyn Vegan: Castevet break up
                                       
                         
Skull Practitioners

Where the genre of “psych rock” will usually refer to “psychedelic rock,” Skull Practitioners take it to a level where the meaning “psychosis rock” would be more appropriate, hurling harsh guitar tones and thumping bass haunts, along with an avalanche of drum fills, into a whirlwind of amplified delirium. The NYC trio produces a heavier and more diverse wall of sound than most five-piece bands out there, swelling and punching up and down scales and arpeggios, blasting through fuzz and decay, resulting in a bleakly intense look into a mind lost. With different vocalists featured on various tracks, it might be difficult to discern an established frontman, but does it matter? The sounds coming from Jason Victor and Ken Levine’s amps, back Alex Baker’s drums are the huge focus here. – JP Basileo

We highlighted fuzz pop Brooklyn via Maine trio Mount Sharp in this blog in April after they landed a Pianos Residency. They are now unveiling this video for single Icarus (streaming), an intense track that progresses from a chilled intro into an explosive finale through an almost incessant crescendo. The band will be playing live at Park Slope's Union Hall on August 1.

Johnny Azari makes thick delta blues songs out of Brooklyn.  The most obvious comparison is Tom Waits; Azari's vocals are rough, expressive and fierce, accuratley delivering the grim and depressing messages in his music.  "I used to be a contendor/Now I'm just a bummer/I used to be somebody/But now I am no one," he wheezes on "Bitter" off his recent album, Road-Dog's Teeth.  The song is tastefully combined with Jamie Elizabeth's crispy clean harmonies, adding an extra modern tinge to the elemental roots.  You can catch Johnny Azari at The Rockwood Music Hall on August 1st.  Stream "Bitter" below.  -Jake Saunders

This band submitted their music for coverage here.
