Bethlehem Steel

Bethlehem Steel returns to Silent Barn with fuzzy alt-rock 1.17

Bethlehem Steel is loud. The band’s music commands the room with intensity and force. The group’s most recent album Party Naked Forever, released in November of 2017, brought that music to a new focus with tumbling fuzz rockers and stop-start rhythmic treats. It’s an album that successfully emphasizes the band’s tumultuous live power and serves as a persuasive argument for taking the time to catch the quartet on a stage. You’ll have that opportunity on January 17th when Bethlehem Steel headlines Silent Barn. – Cameron Carr

A slacking all Brooklyn bill at Shea Stadium tomorrow (11.18) with Peaer, Pupppy, Bethlehem Steel and Cadet Kelly

We live in an era full of paradoxes, and the one we stumbled upon today is that in the most hectic city in the US (NYC) an awful lot of music made by caucasian artists is - one way or another - flirting with the concept of slacking. For those in the mood, tomorrow (11.19) four local bands will bring their own version of slack rock to the Shea Stadium's stage. Peaer (pictured) is a rotating lineup of musicians led by Peter Katz (formerly of Fugue, Poverty Hollow, Suns); their recent self titled album slacks in very interesting and original ways, mostly through a selection of mid to down tempos, introducing elements foreign to the genre like post rock and math rock. Pupppy (Deli NYC Record of the Month in the summer of 2015) has a folkier and more lyrical approach, while openers Bethlehem Steel and Cadet Kelly both dwell in fast paced dreaminess.

A '90s rock band with its own voice: Bethlehem Steel play Palisades on 05.02

At this point in time we rarely get excited when we stumble upon a new band that borrows sonic elements from the alternative rock of '90s - Brooklyn is brimming with them! But... influences are never more relevant than actual talent, and trio Bethlehem Steel isn't lacking in that department. The brainchild of songwriter Rebecca Ryskalczyk, the project has been around since 2013, slowly transitioning from folky beginnings to the full, grungy sound of latest EP 'Docking,' which pretty much represents Ryskalczyk's debut as a pop-rock singer/guitarist. Her airy, unpredictable melodies represent a clear shift from her previous, more traditional style, and find a peak in single '87s,' with its loud/quiet/loud production, evolving melodies and tortured lyrics - check it out below. The band will be playing at Palisades on May 2nd and at Shea Stadium on May 11th.
