Tony Castles streams song from upcoming EP + plays Pianos on 09.06

From the song streaming below - a track from Tony Castles' upcoming EP "Sharon Stone" - one question comes to mind: has this band become a little less crazy (in a psychedelic kinda way) and a little more soulful all of a sudden? Sneak peaking at the full EP (excerpts for each track can be found here) fortunately dissipates any doubts in this regard - the guys are still out there. So, this rather straight "One Tone Man" track - although very enjoyable - is a little misleading, really.

Tony Castles will perform at Pianos tonight (09.06) and then on September 28 at Delinquency.


Chrome Canyon releases video + announces album under Stones Throw

Chrome Canyon is the electronic instrumental project of programmer-remixer Morgan Z, a young man who can now also boast the title or "Music Video Director," since he realized the video streaming below for his own single "Branches," which was entirely shot from the roof of his Greenpoint apartment... you don't need to move much these day to make music AND videos happen, huh? Chrome Canyon's sound references alternatively the playfulness of the French electro-pop of the aughts (think Daft Punk and Air) and the epic spaciousness of Vangelis. Stones Throw is set to release Chrome Canyon's debut album, Elemental Themes on Oct. 9  the record will feature a live rhythm section.


The Bottom Dollars, The Hollows & Tall Tall Trees at Paper Box (9.15)

The Hollows, you may remember as recent(-ish) winners of our 'Artist of the Month' poll. Just about a year after a debut album, this Brooklyn-based six-piece ensemble of multi-instrumentalists released in June a self-titled EP, where textural guitars and grand harmonies brought a new depth, drawn from roots rock influences, to their multi-layered folk jams. 

The Bottom Dollars - who from the start pulled together a wide range of sounds from southern rock to blues, mixing-up an all-American high-impact burst of indie rock - dropped yesterday a new single, with which they're introducing the louder road they went down for their new album 'Good News Everyone' (due September 18th). In the first stages of a forthcoming tour, they'll be playing three dates with The Hollows, the second of which will be here in Bushwick at Paper Box (9.15) where they'll be sharing the bill with the high-energy performers of Mike Savino's brainchild Tall Tall Trees and Saint-Louis' Water Liars.
