Highlights from our Year End Poll: GRUMBY plays Lot 45 on 02.26

Mysterious Brooklyn electronica duo GRUMBY, who made our recent list of Best Emerging NYC Artists, produces evocative and free music. Emancipated from danceability and structural concerns, their tunes introduce the listener to a world of beautiful sonic encounters, unexpected aural developments, and tasteful textures. The most striking of their recent tracks are eastern sounding single 'Sultana Melek' (our favorite one, streaming), which showcases a noteworthy production and attention to the detail, and "Yoshi's Penthouse," which sounds like an exercise in electro-lounge. This track confirm our suspicion that today's electronica is filling in for that genre you may remember your grandparents mentioning, called jazz (and all its derivatives), i.e. music that's more losely structured than pop and relies heavily on improvisation - whether recorded or live. Grumby will appear at Bushwick Lot 45 on Thursday February 26.
