Rare Diagram debut new live lineup

 Rare Diagram's latest release, Secret Shot, boasts an elevated sound from the band. Taking a more orchestral route to their already voluminous chamber-esque indie pop, Secret Shot shows Rare Diagram in their next phase.

To properly express their higher level, Rare Diagram's next show will be ramped up for proper execution. Their live set will now feature two additional backup singers and a trombone quartet, enhancing the beauty of the stage performance to match the album's grace.

Also on the June 8th Bunk Bar show bill is Astro Tan, who are dropping their new psych tinged r&b cut Whiskey + Water EP and Old Wave, who will be rounding out the night with their twee, Of Montreal like indie pop.

Come witness the new bloom of Rare Diagram, pick up a new tape and sway about.

Xenia Rubinos releases new LP 'Black Terry Cat' + plays Baby's All Right on 06.04

It was 2011 when, browsing through the submissions we received for our Best of NYC 2010 Year End Poll, we stumbled upon a track by Xenia Rubinos and couldn't help but write immediately about it. Two years later, Pitchfork said this about her debut album. Sadly, as you can see from the link to our old post, that track is not available for streaming anymore, but we can console ourselves with Xenia's new video for 'Lonely Lover,' which once again shows us an artist that defies categorizations within the traditional pop song structure, which isn't something easy to do.  Xenia will celebrate the release of her new album 'Black Terry Cat' with a show at Baby's All Right tomorrow, June 4th - do not miss!

The Knock Ups are bringing their riot grrrl energy to Club Bohemia tonight (6.03)

 In 2015 Gretchen Shae joined U2 on stage to play guitar on the song “All I Want Is You”, but that wasn't her first time taking the stage. Shae is the vocalist and guitarist of the self-proclaimed Boston-based glam punk band The Knock Ups. Joined by Cat Verlicco on bass and Daniel McCarthy on Drums, the band brings blends energetic instrumentation with politically charged lyrics reminiscent of the riot grrrl movement of the 90’s, and borrow from the movements key players such as Bikini Kill and Sleater Kinney. “Shut Up (and put on your dress)” off their self-titled EP is characterized by it's brevity, and the band’s fast paced riffs and pounding drumming that never drowns out Shae’s vocals. The track “1969” is a slower track that features compelling melodies and a catchy chorus that begs the listener to sing a long, however it doesn’t lose any of the band's signature punk energy. The band will be playing tonight (6.03) at Club Bohemia in Cambridge. Check out their single “Dionysius” below! - John Honan

In the Cut: The Original Crooks and Nannies

As Sam Huntington and Madeline Rafter's high school friends started to set their focus on colleges, the two bonded over their desire to continue making music and bypass the academia route. The duo began recording under the moniker The Original Crooks and Nannies, a play off Thomas English Muffins' commercial tag line. While the recording of their debut album Soup For My Girlfriend might have been a learning lesson of "how to write songs together," Huntington and Rafter have taken a giant leap forward with their sophomore LP Ugly Laugh, The Deli Philly's April Record of the Month. They'll be performing this Saturday afternoon outside of The Fire as part of the Sundrop Music Fest, but first, get to know The Original Crooks and Nannies and their Ugly Laugh HERE!

Von Sell releases new track "I Insist" + plays Rockwood on 06.07

Brooklyn via Berlin electronic artist Von Sell appeared on the scene last year with uber-catchy synth pop single "Ivan." With his recent second release, a synth-soul ballad entitled "I Insist" (streaming below), the young man showcases a multifaceted talent through his ability to create two very different but similarly strong electro pop singles. His pop-soul inclinations are compensated by arrangements often flirting with unexpected, at times even quirky textural elements, like the flutes towards the end of "Ivan" or the warbly synths in "I Insists." You can catch Von Sell live on June 7th at Rockwood Music Hall. - Amanda McCall
