July 2014
Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

Cultfever, Swear & Shake, Psychobuilding and Team Genius play Living Room on 12.10

Cultfever, Swear & Shake, Psychobuilding and Team Genius play Living Room on 12.10

Fun show at The Living Room on Saturday December 10 with 2 NYC artists we are very familiar with (Psychobuildings and Team Genius, who recently signed with Paper Garden Records) and 2 other ones we haven't covered as much (or at all for that matter), Cultfever and Swear & Shake.
Cultfever
- in the picture - is an electro-pop duo featuring Tamara Jafar's semi-breathy vocals and J. Peter Durniak's multi-faceted arrangements. The band released their debut album in October and should have a video ready soon. The track streaming below, entitled "knewyouwell", is our favorite from the record and has the potential to cure - at least temporarily - your Seasonal Affective Disorder.




Swear and Shake will provide a folky break with their Americana tinged rock songs, bringing to the stage instruments foreign to the other bands on the bill, like acoustic guitars and harmonicas. Oh and if you are always on the look for a female voice to fall in love with (like us) you'll have to give this band a listen - Kari Spieler is her name, see track streaming below.
