King Jane's "Deep in the Garden" deftly mixes jazz, R&B, and pop

NYC-based quartet King Jane incorporate a wide range of genre influences into their sound, a consequence of the band’s founding members Michael Sanders and Kenny Florence meeting while pursuing masters degrees in music composition at The New School. Equal parts R&B, jazz, and alternative pop, their most recent effort “Deep in the Garden” exudes the outfit’s consummate musicianship, weaving in and out of different time signatures and motifs—the track starts as a soft-bop, replete with meandering keys and crooning vox before shifting into an explosive, guitar-driven drama around the two and a half minute mark, before finally landing on a driving, noodling outro. “Deep in the Garden” places King Jane somewhere between 70s soft rock and contemporary synth-driven indie; stream it below.

Trans-Atlantic outfit Lokomoko drops new LP "Go Mi Ka Di Da Be" 11.15

Lokomoko arrives in Brooklyn to release their new album "Go Mi Ka Di Da Be" on November 15th. The project, led by songwriter Mario Schöning, began the album in Schöning's hometown of Hamburg, Germany. Now in New York, Schöning releases this collection of songs, opening up a new audience of ears to his transcendental alt-pop sound. Fans of Ratatat or Ariel Pink will find the retro flair and wailing synths fascinating; you can get a sample of them on the single "Everything Ever Ever." Take a look at the music video for the song below. - Will Sisskind

JATK debuts with a thrilling power-pop self-titled album

Boston’s answer to your power-pop cravings is Matt Jatkola, now known to some as JATK. The New England singer-songwriter has released his debut self-titled record today, and we can tell you it is some gloves-off, punchy power-pop for your ears. “How I Feel Inside” lets the distorted guitar power chords rip, and they are dirty-good against the reverb-heavy vocals that are delivered with enough glamour and enthusiasm to animate even the most resistant audience. The anthems continue between the eruptive drum fills of the track “Angry Anchor,” which culminates with an exquisite, heart-accelerating build up. For bass fanatics, there is “Come Inside Your Room,” where the low-end is silky smooth and robust against the revved up electric guitars a la White Reaper X New York’s Big Huge. The final track, “Nüebella Satan,” is fast and furious, deliciously lo-fi, and a fitting finale for an album that never drops below the speed limit. Stream our favorite track from the record below to jolt your day up just a lot. - Rene Cobar

RINI, Jill Peacock, Wayne Tucker play The Revolution, Vol. 44 on 11.14

Few events embody the spirit of independent music in New York City than The Revolution, a performance series that highlights artists continuously pushing thefrontiers of innovative alternative pop.

This week, the series returns to Brooklyn’s National Sawdust on Thursday, November 14th for its 44th volume, featuring sets by local artists RINI, Jill Peacock, and Wayne Tucker. RINI’s strength comes from the outfit’s synergy of Carnatic music (a product of bandleader Harini Raghavan’s formal training at the Berklee College of Music and her own roots in the city of Chennai, India) with electronica, crafting a final output that balances and synthesizes two seemingly disparate genre influences.

Likewise, Canadian keyboardist and singer Jill Peacock crafts nu soul bops that echo trip hop and classic United Kingdom soul, creating grooves that transcend decades and continents; jazz trumpeter, composer, and vocalist Wayne Tucker similarly finds his footing in bridging the genre’s long history, incorporating soundscapes equal parts bebop and contemporary R&B.

Tickets are still available for The Revolution Vol 44—stream each of the artists here before you catch them this Thursday.
