Sarah Jaffe: Suburban Nature

Sarah Jaffe, who we're claiming as an Austinite regardless of the facts, because she's unquestionably a Texan and we're the capital, so therefore, ergo, etc., et. al., and so on, is on the verge of releasing the LP Suburban Nature. And there is much rejoicing - specifically, there will be rejoicing at the Parish May 15th, and again more rejoicing the next day at a Waterloo instore at 4 pm, and finally more rejoicing on the actual release date, May 18th. In fact you can go ahead and rejoice right now since it's available already on iTunes. Photo, which looks to me like a still from a Wes Andersen film, is by Melanie Gomez. 


Jesse Malin releases new album + plays Bowery on May 15

There's a lot to love about Jesse Malin. He’s got that bad-ass rock n’ roll gene that’s youthful and rebellious, and yet old-school enough to pass for classic rock genius. Songs like “Almost Grown,” and “Don’t Let Them Take You Down” are examples of Malin’s gritty, yet heartfelt ballads. In his still rather short musical carreer he’s shared stages with Lucinda Williams, The White Stripes, and even crafted a duet, “Broken Radio” with “The Boss” himself!
After three solo albums and seven years of touring, the indie songwriter came back to New York wondering what to do next. In 2009, Malin got together with Don DiLego, Randy Schrager, Matt Hogan and DJ Tommy USA and formed his new band, The St. Mark’s Social. In late April, Malin and the St. Mark’s Social have finished the band’s latest record, LOVE IT TO LIFE. Hot tracks include: the bluesy “Disco Ghetto”, the catchy “St. Mark’s Sunset”, and the exhilarating “Black Boombox”. Although his roots hail from the punk/hardcore era (as front man of Heart Attack), LOVE IT TO LIFE is proof that Malin has ascended the punk rock hierarchy to become indie pop punk king.
Jesse Malin and the St. Mark’s Social will be headlining Bowery Ballroom this Saturday, May 15th. Be sure to check it out! -Melissa Wong

NYC artists on the rise Racoon Fighter

Closing the month of April, Brooklyn-based Raccoon Fighter raided Cake Shop along with Spanish Prisoners, She Keeps Bees, and Shark?. Raccoon Fighter kept their performance fresh and played with an infectious bite, minus the rabies, trading musical chairs between lead vocalist, Sean Gavigan, and fellow coon, Zac Ciancaglini,on guitar and drums. Backed by the new addition to the pack, Gabe Wilhelm on bass, the trio unmasked a pleasantly seductive, slinky style of raw rock. The forceful downbeats and shuffling percussion in between, lax guitar strums, and anxious, bluesy vocals of notable tunes, “The Upbeat,” “Rollin’ Wheel,” “Pillow Surf,” and “Forgot to Rot” left their marks on Cake Shop, making Raccoon Fighter a group to track. -Meijin Bruttomesso
