Nicholas Nicholas unveils video for 'Medallion'

If you know what 4AD and Tindersticks are (hint: the latter is a UK band that should have been on the former, a record label that put out a lot of wonderfully dark and dreamy records in the '80s), in all likelyhood you'll enjoy Brooklyn Nicholas Nicholas' shy, ghostly tracks. With a sound as introverted as it gets, this band creates sonic soundscapes trapped between a bedroom with a sound and a wandering mind - giving the impression that their songs are private notes we were not really supposed to see or hear. The band released LP 'About Town' in November, check out singles 'Texas Architecture' and the video for Medallion, below.


Nicholas Nicholas opens for High Highs tomorrow (11.08)

With those vocals filtered, heavily effected and drenched in never ending reverbs, Brooklyn's Nicholas Nicholas on record sound like the ghost of a band from the '80s. Chris Masullo (pictured, the creative force behind the band) obviously enjoys using a heavy hand on his voice and most other sonic elements, a trait common to many creative producers and arrangers. The band will be opening for High Highs on Tuesday November 11/18 with Fascinator and Gold Lake. On the bill also two other Brooklyn bands: electro-crazy one man band Fascinator and dream rockers Gold Lake.

An awesomely bad trip: Nicholas Nicholas plays Pianos tonight (04.08)

There was a time in the 80s when a lot of people enjoyed truly anguishing, borderline funereal music. Bands like Dead Can Dance, This Mortal Coil and to some extent also Japan (and later David Sylvian) who dared to mix sadness with weirdness in their music, actually managed to sell a lot records. We are not sure if the stars will align to favor a similar situation in the near future (although we doubt "lots of records" will ever be sold by anybody again), but if they did, Brooklyn electro-freak band Nicholas Nicholas might benefit from it. The kitchen project of Chris Masullo (that's where everything is recorded), Nicholas Nicholas makes music that sounds like a bad trip that somehow becomes a surreal adventure: it's a dense world where dissonances suddenly make perfect sense, and a dreamy stream of consciousness leads to the discovery of new truths through random associations. Check out our favorite track "Pink Contacts" below and see the band live at Pianos tonight for Cosmonaut's residency.
