Buscabulla
"Kitsune
"
mp3

"Debut EP ""Kitsuné"" by Puerto Rico/Brooklyn band Buscabulla (Spanish slang for 'troublemaker'), is one of the most beautiful and intriguing records to catch our ears in quite some time. In its four tracks, the band effortlessly blends electro, industrial, world music and dream/pop into a very enjoyable final product. Opening track ""Caer"" alternates gritty guitar loops with liquid synths, while singer Raquel Berrios' voice charms and soothes with minimal pop melodies sung in Spanish, but that seem to bear some kind of Japanese influence. Metelé is a more traditional electronic, atmospheric ballad reminiscent of Air but still dominated by an Eastern sounding melody, while ""Temporal"" - the most experimental track in the EP - blends the clanging of a mechanical loop with what sounds like a synchopated, finger piano sample, while distorted guitars swells drive the song through its tension and release cycles. Final track ""Sono"" - one of the strongest on the record - recycles an idyllic, 60s sounding flute sample and surrounds it with a funky drum pattern and all sorts of distorted and percussive sounds - all very organic sounding - while Raquel indulges in a simple melody that seems inspired by nursery rhymes. Buscabulla's ""Kitsuné,"" with its incredible array of ethnic influences filtered through a Western musical lens, represents as close as it gets how today's NYC music should sound."

Spend Thanksgiving Eve w/Teen Men, Needle Points & Purples at Boot & Saddle Nov. 26

As members of the noteworthy indie-pop group Spinto Band, singer Nick Krill and guitarist Joe Hobson had found a niche for creating catchy, original tunes that made a poetic statement. And the duo has taken that ability and crafted a sensory overload when they joined forces with photographer Catherine Maloney and filmmaker Albert Birney to start their new project Teen Men. The lavish quartet blend artistic alternative music and electronic ambient tones with a photographic and cinematic digital media filmscape to create a one of a kind live experience. Catching them at Boot & Saddle tonight will be the perfect way to spend your Thanksgiving Eve. Especially when they'll be joined by psychedelic journeymen/woman Needle Points, who have also been known to deliver a mind altering live performance that's complete with colorful costumes, dual percussionists, and the thrumming bass of Brian "Langor" Langan. The incendiary musical performance kicks off with a sure to be rockin’ set by Purples, featuring members of Philly indie-rock forefathers The Teeth. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by Maciek Jasik) - Bill McThrill

Beef Oven at The East Room 11.26

A band has to be good when their name makes you giggle a tiny bit. Beef Oven is fairly new on the scene, having released their 6-track EP "Gimme the Blood" just this past June. Recorded by none other than Ben Spinks (of Supermelt fame), the EP grinds out some fuzzed-to-the-max jams with just the barest trace of blues and surf. Beef Oven is among the lineup for the second edition of 2 Jung 2 Dye's Book Swap this Wednesday night (aka Thanksgiving Eve.) Phantom Farmer and Shoot the Mountain round out the bill; bring a book that you would like to share with a total stranger in hopes that it will bring the same joy into their life as it did your. Wednesday's show starts at 8pm at The East Room. Dig our favorite track off "Gimme the Blood" to get in the spirit. -Terra James-Jura

Sports Coach Releases First EP

Most coaches probably spend their spend their spare time off the field rubbing their stupid bald heads like my old basketball coach; but not Sports Coach, coach of all sports, in his spare time he's busy putting out music under the "athletic wear" genre of bandcamp. Once you get past the NFL soundbites at the beginning of every song you'll find catchy little post punk tunes with an assist from lo fi. This ep only lasts a little bit over an average quarter but for Sports Coach it's all about leading his team to victory. One day at a time.
