New Jo Kusy LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Check out the cover for The Amazing Jumpin' Jo Kusy! Does it cause you to wonder what makes Jo Kusy so "amazing" and "jumpin'"? Drugs? Or maybe it's his knack for making playfully uninhibited, garage-psych tunes. The prolific Philly songwriter continues to churn out hypnotically odd yet groovy creations on his most recent album and fifth release of 2017. We have confidence that he just might have one more in him before the year is out - perhaps two if the winter chill comes soon and traps him inside. Until then, enjoy his latest below!





Tall Juan premieres Ramones cover video, performs at Puerto Rico benefit 11.05

Maybe you’ve been thinking “wow, there are a lot of bad things going on in the world right now—like the hurricane damage to Puerto Rico—I wish I could do something about it.” Or maybe you’ve been thinking “what my life needs is a band that sounds like The Ramones, but isn’t The Ramones, and maybe features acoustic guitar and occasional Spanish.” Either way you should probably be watching Tall Juan at the Que Lio! Fundraiser show for Puerto Rico on November 5th.

Sometimes it’s just hard to figure out how to do good and contribute to a cause, but being part of a benefit makes it easy. Sometimes it’s just hard to listen to The Ramones—actually, no it’s not, if you feel like it’s hard to listen to The Ramones I cannot offer sincere understanding... But that’s beside the point. Tall Juan’s Joey Ramone-esque vocal delivery and incessantly bopping rhythms clearly pay tribute to the early NYC rebels, but there’s also a garage rock, almost lo-fi sensibility to his taste and style (Mac DeMarco recorded his debut album). It’s a sound true to New York from The Ramones, to The Strokes, to that band you saw a couple weeks ago in Brooklyn that sounded way better live than on Bandcamp.

Below, you can watch his new video for “Time Bomb”—a Ramones cover that sounds even more Ramonesque than the original—featuring shirtless Tall Juan, skateboards, and hip little dance moves. And don’t forget to stop by the Que Lio! fundraiser at Baby’s All Right. It’s a donation-based daytime show (12-4 p.m.) on a Sunday, so no excuses. – Cameron Carr, photo by Audrey Del Piccolo.





New Weller LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The trio of Weller recently shared its self-titled debut LP, which was produced by Jake Ewald (Modern Baseball, Slaughter Beach, Dog). Songwriting, soaked in emotive sincerity, forges a natural bond. Braiding heart-panging relatability with an upbeat energy, these songs make one feel less alone and hopeful of breaking through the fear. After touring for the better part of the last month, Weller will be returning home this Saturday, November 4 at JJ's Diner for the band's record release celebration that will also include Three Man Cannon, Allegra, and Beach Bod.

New Myths bring blend of new wave and alt rock to Brooklyn Bazaar 11.16

The thing that makes New Myths so hard to pin down is, paradoxically, how familiar their music feels. The synths and dance beats are recognizably new wave, but the guitar tones pay tribute to angsty alt-rock. To top it off there’s a mood of goth darkness veiling the vocal harmonies and instruments below it. Blended together, New Myths’ sound is relatable yet exciting calling to mind alternative classics without over-referencing any particular artist. You can experience it live next at Brooklyn Bazaar on November 16th. – Cameron Carr





New Sandcastle EP Available for Streaming & Download

A meandering melancholy of doo wop, medieval folk, and indie rock, Sandcastle's The Vampire was released at an ever-appropriate time. Featuring contributions from Zach Robbins and Josh Mackie (Dark Mtns, Flight Habit, Sun Organ) as well as Josh Meakim (A Sunny Day in Glasgow, The Fantastic Imagination), the album creates a cautionary sense of comfort, as if something is slight amiss. Sam Kassel and Dan Angel form a bewitching pair. It’s drearily delightful as one slips into the darkness.
