Kolb's "Making Moves" is eclectic brilliance, plays Mercury Lounge 7.6

Kolb's "Making Moves" is eclectic brilliance, plays Mercury Lounge 7.6

Queens-based songwriter Kolb stepped not-so-quietly onto the scene last year with debut release Making Moves, an audaciously experimental effort that blends Bowie-esque vocal delivery with delightfully eclectic (and occasionally campy) instrumentation. With no shortage of out-of-tune toy instruments, unexpected cello lines, and bird calls, Kolb basks in the unexpected and outrageous, his voice endowed by a musical theater quality that, when situated among acoustic guitars and shifting time signatures, creates a vivacious, incredibly fun energy. While Kolb has yet to release a follow-up, the project’s glam-folk vision is unique in the New York scene; stream it below, and catch him at Mercury Lounge on July 6th, supporting Flying Fish Cove. -Connor Beckett McInerney
