Bridges and Powerlines announce new EP + play Public Assembly on 03.29

There's this amazing mac and cheese place in Greenpoint that serves a variety of dishes, each named for a different Brooklyn borough. Some are spicy and burn going down, others are meaty and full of flavor. Well, stretching this analogy as far as humanly possible... electro pop group Bridges and Powerlines is a little bit like that mac and cheese. With every track of new LP "Better" named for a different BK hood, singer Andrew Wood moves through synths and dials to cover a range of dissonant, highly personal stories particular to his favorite borough. 

The band has a new EP coming out later in the Spring, while below you'll find a recent demo. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


From the NYC record submissions: The Vontons

Whatever kind of violence these guys are up to, faceless Brooklyn band The Vontons like to keep things simple. With only three members, they've managed to create a huge and crashing sound in bulldozing tracks like the QOTSA - channeling 'Excursion into a Subway Tunnel,' or the rumbling acoustic blues of 'I'm Gone.'

It's an intense little ride... the record is able to go several rounds with more than a few surprises throughout. I guess when the punches are dealt this loudly by such a small ensemble, each one has to land hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Graveyard Lovers release video for Ripe to Misbehave

What happens when you bring the blues of the deep south to the urban jungles of Manhattan? Passport issues? For Graveyard Lovers, there's an instant connection between Zach Reynolds' roots from Louisiana, and the city backdrop to drummer Tricia Purvis' rock roots. Think Deertick's angst with the rock posturing of arena bands like My Chemical Romance, and you've come close to the sound of their debut EP 'Manifesto."

The video to "Ripe to Misbehave" is ripe with the tortured thoughts of anyone who's grown to hate Brooks Brothers. Watch it here, stream the song below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


The Henry Millers release new video for "Hop" + plays The Studio on 04.01

A true indie pop overload, The Henry Millers incorporate all the signature sounds of the genre into one band: heavy melodic guitars, playful synths, and harmonizing male and female vocals find their place in the band's upbeat music. Check out their new video for the song "Hop" below, and see them live at Websters Hall's Studio on April 1st. - Lucy Sherman


NYC band on the rise: Teen Girl Scientist Monthly plays Cameo tonight (03.21)

Made up mostly of NYU grads, Teen Girl Scientist Monthly compensate deficiencies in the band name department (we haven't managed to say it without stumbling on our tongue yet - but we are foreign) with their contagiously upbeat power pop and sassy front woman Morgan Lynch's presence. The band is playing Cameo tonight, it should be fun.
