The Denzels introduce Admirable Traits + open for The Vaccines

Here's to the start of a sweet day for The Denzels; on this September 11th they're taking part in the first steps of a new Brooklyn-based record label, Admirable Traits, whose first release will be their second EP 'Easy Tiger'. Revealed in January, the five track-set of fuzzy garage-pop romance floats quite casually between surfing harmonies and noise, working its best moves right at the heart of this gap, where young love tales stay away from cheese, and dramatic synth lines can come glistening through without any of it feeling too nostalgic or too.. gleeful. Taking the release celebrations to the stage, they'll be opening for The Vaccines this evening at The Music Hall of Williamsburg.


The Gypsy West plays Bowery Electric 9.15

Brooklyn based trio The Gypsy West will be tearing up the stage once more at the Bowery Electric along with Jody Porter (guitarist from Fountains of Wayne) & The Black Swans and Baby Wolves. Known for their wildly energetic live performances and complicated instrumentals, the psychedelic/ grunge rock group has been picking up steam with a successful show at Bowery Electric last August and an impressive performance at the Northside Festival in June already under their belt. Break out your war paint this Saturday, September 15th for what’s sure to be a raucous time!! Get your tickets here. - Chelsea Eriksen


EndAnd's 'Commando' video + Union Pool show

Commando, streaming below, is the recent music video by Brooklyn's hard-hitting trio EndAnd, first off their 'Adventures of Fi In Space' album. In line with the spirit of the record's artwork, it sends you on a trip into a loud-as-f* rock and roll fantasy filled with a solid riffs and guitar solos shooting 'round every corner, 'Maximus Rockous' on a mission in spaceFuelling their engine with a rather refined blend of grunge-noise-alt-rock influences and disturbing emotional intensity, they released Hi-Fi & Lo-Fi In Space - the two EPs that form the album - in June; now headed towards a second full-length 'Mechanics and Energetics of Stilt-Running' - for which they're raising funds - EndAnd will be playing a show at Brooklyn's Union Pool on September 29th. 


Win Win announces new album + Pianos residency

With a second album quite a stretch from the first, they're a bit of a tough act to pin down. Based between New York and Boston, Win Win is a multimedia project which brings together producer XXX Change, DJ Chris Devlin and DJ/video artist Ghostdad; they introduced themselves last February with a self-titled trippy electronics album and are now previewing their new full-length 'Double Vision' (to be released October 16th via Vice Records), on which they're adding a cheerful touch of indie rock to the mix. Streaming below is Salt Days +, first single off 'Double Vision' , which reveals some of the of the good cards they had hidden in their sleeve, amongst which a surge of vocals and guitars - just enough to probably add quite a few heads to their followers. Building up to the release, you can catch them at Pianos every Thursday throughout the month of September. 


Black Marble plays Glasslands 9.11

This Tuesday night (9.11), the Glasslands Gallery is certain to be transformed into a Factory (Records, that is) atmosphere. Brooklyn darkwavers Black Marble promise a brooding salad of chilly synths and warm melodies, introducing material from their new record, A Different Arrangement (some of which was debuted last week during a show at Ritual). The band has reconfigured their traditionally post-punk transmissions adding dreamy hooks and more prominent vocals, landing somewhere closer to art-centric New York Noise this time ’round. Opening sets by local new-new-romantics, Warm Ghost, and Vancouver indie-synth band, Cosmetics. 289 Kent Ave, Brooklyn. - Brian Chidester
