Vintage Pop from NYC: Fascinations Grand Chorus

Revival pop and rock require, more than any other genres, a selection of wardrobe and colors that are appropriate to the era referenced in the band's music, but possibly with some elements of "new" in it. Brooklyn's new project Fascinations Grand Chorus excels at that, sporting a look that's very late '50s/early '60s, but choosing to push the classic pastel tones of those years in a more vibrant direction, with slightly psychedelic results. Is that also how their music sounds like? To a certain extent. Overall, it's very anchored to those pre-Beatles years in the UK, with Stephanie's vocals disciplinately singing vintage pop melodies between bee bop and Rock'n'Roll; however, some psychedelic edge is introduced by guitar parts that - like in single "Welcome" (streaming) - are at times reminiscent of Pink Floyd's early records. The duo released their debut, self titled EP last year and a follow up 'Actor/Actress EP' early in 2017.

Fusilier tackles racial identity on newest music video for "Make You"

One of the most exciting resurgences in music lately, and the most important, has been artists’ eagerness to politicize their work. With his newest music video for “Make You,” Fusilier boldly doubles down on the messages of self-love and acceptance he’s expressed on his previous works. In the video, streaming below, we see Fusilier in three versions, whited out, normal, and blackfaced. In his own words, this division represents how he is seen by others as “themselves and the other, friend and enemy, lust and aversion” all at the same time. The song itself conveys the anguish this gaze causes him, but the video ultimately ends with Fusilier, his normal self, triumphing out his other, false, versions. We already knew that Fusilier had talent, but projects like these prove him to be an artist with the rare ability to instill compelling political issues in his original avant-soul productions. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

New Russel the Leaf Album Available for Streaming & Download

Janitor Boy, the new EP from Evan M. Marré, a.k.a. Russel the Leaf, was recently released via Sleeper Records. Developing an intricate feathery instrumental foundation, while building sonic systems, whose parts retain no burden of weight, the sound is enriching, melodically layered yet refreshingly light. It takes an apt touch to explore the varying avenues, without jumbling up all the wires. Russel the Leaf is scheduled to appear alongside Boosegumps, It’s Cool, and Wilt on Monday, March 20 at The Waiting Room. (Photo by Katie Bennett)
