Savoir Adore plays free Mercury Lounge show 9.22

Savoir Adore's new album is on the way; 'Our Nature', set to be released on October 16th, was introduced at the end of last year with their single 'Dreamers'. As we got closer, the Brooklyn duo recently revealed a new track off the record, 'Regalia', electro - pop/rock jam as delicious as its title sounds with some groovy basslines and generous layers, danceable rhythmics along the lines of Dreamers, but where that one was... well, dreamy, this is ensemble coming on with twice as much of a kick. An inviting teaser, for sure. Before they hit the road to promote their new album throughout the month of October, Savoir Adore will be playing a free show (!) at Mercury Lounge this Saturday (9.22), sharing the bill with Montreal's Stars


Doe Paoro plays Deli CMJ show at The Living Room on 17.10

Doe Paoro got a lot of coverage in The Deli as of late - that's what happens when a local artist makes music that's personal and endearing. The exotic sounding songwriter will be co-headlining The Deli's Post-Rock/Orchestral Stage at The Living Room on October 17 - even though she doesn't exactly fit either genre. Check out her latest video for the single "Body Games" below.


St. Lucia premieres new track, announces album

Although rock and pop stars are among the least religious human beings on earth, since the 90s there hasn't been a shortage of band names starting with "St." -  most of them belonging to the electronic pop hub. Currently one of the most successful new electro acts out of NYC, St.Lucia offers music as ethereal as its name suggests ("Lucia" means "light" in Latin, so combined with "St." it conjures up images of angels singing somewhere around the the 7th heaven). The band just released the new single "September" (streaming below), which is an appetizer of their new upcoming album produced by James Iha of Smashing Pumpkin memory.

P.S. The track sounds great but we wish one man band Jean-Philip Grobler gave us a press shot that showed the other side of his face! 1 - 2 - 3 - 4.


Talk Normal debuts new single + plays 285 Kent 9.29

On the first few seconds of 'Cover' with that brain-grating loop of faint cymbal sounds, it seems like we're in for some bizarre adventure into sonic discomfort– as would generally be the case with with Brooklyn duo Talk Normal, who for just about five years, has been building its fan base from one record to the next with offset rhythms upon noise. Andrya Ambro & Sarah Register's new single, premiered two days ago via Noisey.com, kept exploring the more stripped-down facet of their sound, that rite-in-the-name-of-dissonance aesthetic they had going on across the last two records; but as the track progresses, building up to a passionate and glowing climax one menacing beat at a time it reveals a channeled side we never really met before. Intense. A smashing preview of the album to come, on Joyful Noise. Talk Normal will be playing at 285 Kent on September 29th with Pop. 1280 and Guardian Alien


Hey Guy at Arlene's Grocery 9.21

One-half mall punk brats, one half Glee Club dropouts, Hey Guy’s music is the utter manifestation of their 'business on the top, party on the bottom' sense of fashion evident from the band's Facebook music player. And that's the attitude you need to have here when checking out Russian-born singer Boris Pelekh’s feelings of 20-something alienation and paranoia sandwiched inside the half pipe-ready riffing and beats that once served bands like Incubus and Deftones pretty well. It appears Queens, NY has yet to let us down when it comes to rocking out this corner of rock's pantheon, and Hey Guy is here to scratch that itch. Join the band as they send off both Pelekh and drummer Daniel Jakubovic -  who'll be on the road for while with American Idiot: The Musical - tomorrow (9.21) at Arlene's Grocery, 9pm. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
