Von Haze celebrate CD release party at Union Pool, 06.17

Made up of Travis Caine (guitar) and Katherine Kin (synth), Brooklyn duo Von Haze is out to hypnotize. Their brooding, psychedelic songs are doused with dark, trippy beats and whirring, droning vocals. Tracks like the 7-minute trancelike "Sooner or Later" or the echoey "Sad Girls" elicit a strange sense of intimacy — as if our hand rested on their thumping hearts, or our ears were pressed up against their mouthing lips. Much like The xx, Von Haze pull us in real close to tell us something we don't quite understand, but somehow still find sexy. In the past, Von Haze has opened up for The Big Pink and Crystal Antlers, but you can get up close and personal with them on June 17 at their EP release party at Union Pool. - Michelle Gelsani


Best of NYC #34: The Courtesy Tier, live on Bedford Ave, 06.21

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record store personnel and DJs).

The powerful sound and bluesy harmonies that lace each track on The Courtesy Tier’s latest EP, “Map and Marker,” simply attest the to the fact that when it comes to music, less really can be more. The Brooklyn-based duo consisting of Omer on guitar and vocals, and Layton on drums and vocals, channels the raw, magnetic vibe of Jimmy Hendrix capped off with bluesy confidence and an electric energy that feels contagious at first listen. Uncontrived lyrics blend with catchy rhythms, giving listeners just enough rock to stimulate the body and words that will speak to an assortment of ages and tastes. It’s no surprise the satisfying melodies of The Courtesy Tier has them climbing quickly and seamlessly to the top of the Brooklyn music food chain. The Courtesy Tier will play Make Music New York on Bedford Ave (Williamsburg) on Monday June 21. – CM
