Black Marble plays Newtown Radio party with Widowspeak on 04.21

Sometimes I wonder if Brooklyn is really so depressing... Yeah because these days it seems to inspire hordes of really dark and hopeless-sounding bands - like Black Marble. Don't get me wrong, I grew up listening to this kind of music and love it, I'm just surprised by the sheer amount of it that this wonderful neighborhood is capable of producing. So... if you happen to feel like you had a little too much happiness lately, we recommend you check out this duo, who seem to reference some of the darkest early post punk bands of the 80s, like The Cure and Joy Division. The band released a 5 song EP in January and will be performing at the Newtown Radio party with Widowspeak on 04.21 at 319 Scholes.

Weekly Feature: Night Manager plays Glasslands on 04.13

Combining beautiful dreamy female vocals with a band of dudes chunking out chimey, grungy guitar chords and distinctive rhythmic bass/drum patterns, Brooklyn’s Night Manager is a rising new force on the NYC indie music scene. Their presence has already gone national, to the extent that their "Ghost" 7" EP (Deli Record of the Month earlier this year) caught the attention of labels Rough Trade in the UK and Big Love in Japan, and have since released it in those countries. Night Manager comes along as a breath of fresh air in a scene that has simply duplicated itself one too many times. - Read Dave Cromwell interview with the band here.

Electro-rock from NYC: Moon Furies announce debut EP

Based in Brooklyn via Chicago, electronic trio Moon Furies is picking up steam after opening for compatible artists like Peter Bjorn and John, Chairlift and Nite Jewel. The band already released 2 singles in 2012 and is putting the final touches on their debut EP, scheduled for a 2012 release and entitled "Not Earth". The twosome’s dark electro-pop reinterprets the dark electronic sound of the early 80s in a personal direction involving - among other things - real drums and a sweeping electric guitar. - Chelsea Eriksen

Kelli Scarr lands May residency + releases 'Dangling Teeth' single

From singing for Moby, to bringing it home in country, Kelli Scarr is fast becoming the rock world's connection to the kind of nostalgic Americana found in places like her hometown of Folsom, California. With a voice recalling the breathiness of Feist, coupled with the lyrical fury of Miranda Lambert, Scarr's music is every bit as approachable as it is powerful.

Her new single 'Dangling Teeth' is gently lulling, taking it's time and offering the listener a preview of what's to come on her sophomore LP of the same name due out June 5th on Silence Breaks. Take a listen and see her live when she plays a Brooklyn residency at The Way Station next month.

Jon DeRosa releases 'A Wolf in Preacher's Clothes' at Rockwood

Jon DeRosa has been through multiple transformations over the past decade. An artist's artist, he's been involved with many successful NYC projects including Magnetic Fields and Aarktica. His upcoming release, 'A Wolf in Preacher's Clothes,' set to drop today April 10th, finds the artist reconnecting with his Americana singer/songwriter, penning material that grabs you by the throat the way Tom Waits or Nebraska-era Springsteen will take hold of you. This is a record demanding multiple listens, with each revealing a different journey... not unlike the wandering bicyclist featured in new video 'Anchored' (below) from his forthcoming LP. See him at his record release party tonight at Rockwood Music Hall at 9pm.
