Beecher's Fault plays Fontana on 01.24

Who says you can't insert clever ideas into pop music? Like Ms Mr and Passion Pit before them, the members of Beecher's Fault are finding a place in pop music for experimental ideas to exist, and find ways to be clever at the same time. It's immediately evident listening to 'Misbehavior' how duo Ben Taylor and Ken Lamken have one foot in pearly pop, while including sonic somersaults to keep your head twirling while your feet are moving. There's more to Beecher's Fault than you'll see from first glance. Check them out when they play Fontana in the LES this Thursday January 24 at 8pm. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

NYC Rapper MaG releases "freedom"

MaG is doing his thing. He’s made great strides since “Retail.” His style recalls a young Talib Kweli, with a bit more intelligibility. His nonchalance is endearing; it’s like the microphone is his best friend and he’s confiding his innermost thoughts. He’s shooting the shit too, and dreaming, posturing a bit, but not in an offensive way. He wants to have coffee with you, walk down the street with you and point out his favorite landmarks. He’s got secrets, and if you listen close enough, you’ll have them. In a culture hampered by its own exclusivity, MaG is defining a new form of “Freedom.” -=bMC

Lend an ear to NYC's Lazy Talkers

Formed by Baltimore-native Ryan Weiner, Lazy Talkers started as an outlet for the New School music student, who grew up favoring new rock classics like Talking Heads and Nirvana. His band's sound, however, is based on a dreamy folk pop formula that doesn't betray those early passions. Lazy Talkers have recently unveiled a couple of songs full of jangly guitars and pretty melodies, with the track “Killing Time” leading the way - we are premiering it below. The song effortlessly follows a lazy tempo, and its relaxed melody and soft vocals resonate with nostalgia and warmth. It almost feels like we are not in NYC nor in the midst of winter. The band will be releasing a full length later in the year - Devon Antonetti

NYC Artists on the rise: Haerts, produced by St. Lucia

With so many bands working their way through Brooklyn these days, it can apparently be easy to miss something. Guilty as charged when it comes to Haerts (no spelling mistake there for a change). Formed from veteran producer/label mate St. Lucia (pictured) and Nini Fabi (the former frontwoman of folk-tacular duo NINI + BEN), the two have now come together in one of the most exciting blends I've heard from a local group in quite some time. One part synth-pop, one part country croon, out comes an adoring blend that transcends both universes.

Latest single 'Wings' promises exactly that kind of flight. A trip through the clouds that not only shows off Fabi's soaring soprano, but promises to re-kindle your long-lost relationship to Country music... or at least the process of healing can begin. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

This song was added to our curated SoundCloud playlist of the best songs by emerging NYC bands - listen to it here.
