NYC Bands on the rise: Twin Sister, Live at Mercury on 04.28

Twin Sister are yet another semi-electronic Brooklyn based home recording project. Unlike most other artists embracing the "lo-fi" aesthetics though, this band has a definite, noteworthy talent for sophisticated pop production values. Finding inspiration in the Beta Band's crooked melodies and rhythms and in Stereolab's looped melodic patterns, Twin Sister could be also described as a lo-fi, mellower version of Chairlift, with whom they share a relaxed and atmospheric approach to electro pop - and rather laid back female vocals. Speaking of which, singer Andrea Estella's fragile, whispered tone - which for a change is not autotuned - is quite unique, contributing enormously to make this band sound like no other. Their best song is "All Around and Away We Go" - which is first of all an absolute pop gem, and then also a tune with a very intriguing arrangement, definitely owing something to Eno/Byrne's "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts" electro-exotic experiments. The band is getting a lot of attention from the blogosphere - their EP "Color Your Life" got a 7.5 from Pitchfork a few weeks ago - you may want to check out their show at Mercury on 04.28.


Electro Morocco's new video with Yula Beeri

Hell yeah, we need some music with some Middle Eastern influences every now and then! Here's Electro Morocco's new video with Yula Beeri featuring as guest singer (I believe her and EM's bassist Roy Gurel used to be the driving force of now defunkt Nanuchka).


Paleface's New Video - live at Southpaw, May 21

From MAGNET MAGAZINE: "Paleface was a fixture on the downtown-NYC anti-folk scene in the early ’90s and put out two major-label records before his alcohol abuse almost killed him on tour with the Breeders in 1997. After cleaning up and meeting the likes of the Moldy Peaches and Regina Spektor, Paleface resumed his recording career via a number of new releases on small record companies and his own label. Last year, Paleface (now the name of the duo featuring him and his drummer girlfriend Monica Samalot) issued the excellent The Show Is On The Road on Ramseur Records (the onetime home to the Avett Brothers). MAGNET is proud to premiere the brand new video for “New York, New York.” Check out Paleface @ Southpaw May 21, Co-Headlining w/ Hoots And Hellmouth. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).



The Art of Shooting CD release party! Pianos, April 27

The Art of Shooting - besides having a friggin' awesome name - are a trio from Brooklyn that plays a mixture of noise rock, alt folk and psych rock. Tense, moody, often dimly lit, these guys' songs reserve surprisingly noisy turns, alternated with moments full of tenderness and emotion, making it a consistent source of catharsis from the struggles of life - which are the core of lead singer Kelly Irene Corson's lyrics. Don't miss their CD release party at Pianos on April 27.
