A mellow evening with Wilsen, St. Claire, sami.the.great, Lora Faye and more

The opening night of our NYC B.E.A.F. 2013 at Spike Hill in Williamsburg won't be a very loud one, showcasing a selection of truly gifted emerging singer songwriters and rootsy acts featuring a gentle sound. A lot of women on this bill, headlined by St. Claire and Wilsen (pictured, Deli Record of the Month last September) and their beautiful dream folk. On similarly ethereal coordinates dwells the trio now known as Basinger (formerly Makeout Room), who will open the show at 7.15pm. Lora Faye will bring a darker vein to the night with her country ballads tinged with jazzy noir elements. Songwriters Lisa Jaeggi (and her new band So So Apropos), sami.the.great, and French import Kiddo, will bring their personal approach to the genre, featuring varying degrees of pop influences.

Times, ticket prices and full fest schedule can be found here.

A NYC band for the endless summer: Basinger

For anyone missing the endless summer, Basinger (previously known as Makeout Room) is here to bring the beach. Just try and not get lost in the skyscraper crooning of tracks 'Rehobeth' or 'Going to California.' The Brooklyn quartet describes their music as ethereal sounds, and are set to release their debut EP later this year. Hoping the good weather keeps up until then. - Mike Levine
