Grooms hosts Brooklyn Bazaar Release Show on 10.25

Returning with a fifth album set to further the band’s exploration of ambience and shoegazey guitar effects, Grooms brings the music to Brooklyn Bazaar on October 25. Lead singles from Exit Index showcase swelling synths amidst the moody wash of sound without straying from Grooms’ usual noisy fare. The band’s brigade of fuzz and other-worldly effects is ideal for live shows where the onslaught of guitar and drums crashes into you with the force of a brick wall. One of the few brick walls you should be excited to crash into. – Cameron Carr

Recommended show: Grooms plays Union Pool on June 27

A pillar of the Brooklyn DIY scene, since the late aughts Grooms (interviewed back in 2010) have been consistently releasing records of bendy post punk with both ambient and slacker rock inclinations. Their latest full length 'Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair ' (their fourth) came out this February and shows us a group that's still as inspired as in its early days, notwithstanding a couple of troubled years behind them (more about this here). Check out the fantastic title-track below and don't miss them live at Union Pool on June 27 in their new lineup.

Grooms release "Infinity Caller" LP + play Glasslands on 09.16 with Clinic

A few weeks ago we posted Grooms' single "I Think We Are Alone Now" from their new album "Infinity Caller," and hearing it again in the video below made us realize that... it's a great tune! Led by Travis Johnson - whose day job is building stompboxes at A Place To Bury Stranger's pedal company Death by Audio - Grooms is a staple of the Brooklyn scene, and has been delivering quality guitar rock tunes since the mid aughts. The band is scheduled to play three US dates with legendary British group Clinic, including a show at Glasslands on September 16.

Grooms announce "Infinity Caller" LP + play The Knit on 07.22

One of the best slacker rock band to emerge from NYC in the second decade of the new millennium, Grooms - and the streaming single "I Think We Are Alone Now" - might echo many of your favorite artists from the early 90s (from Sonic Youth to Dinosaur Junior, Pixies and Pavement) without sounding quite like any of them. The band has just announced the release of their sophomore album "Infinity Caller" on Western Vinyl - a label that hosted noteworthy releases from Dirty Projectors and Here We Go Magic among others. Don't miss their show at The Knitting Factory on July 22.
