girlyboi drop new (mini-)LP "Good Looks"

girlyboi is back at it again with new six tracks mini-album Good Looks, and the release is an instant stunner. The duo's vocals are either ethereal or snarling, and set against a bed of ambient synths or folk-influenced indie pop. The tracks work in a way that feels like the epitome of understated ny-cool. What's even more engaging however is the lyrical content of Good Looks: the record positions the listener as a voyeur pulling back the curtains--it weaves raw, honest emotions in a way that feels (maybe even too-) close-to-home for anyone who's tried their hand at navigating love and the city. Good Looks is at once intimate, and instantly relatable. Listen to the EP streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

NYC's DJ Jubilee to play BEMF at the Good Room on 11/4

It makes sense that Jubilee would take her name from the X-men member known for shooting pyrotechnics out of her palms. The Brooklyn-based DJ by way of Miami produces explosive mixes that span multiple genres and leave your stereo spitting sparks. On MAGICITY II, Jubilee channels her tropical-city roots, but also manages to pivot between dancehall, R&B, techno, and grime--seamlessly flipping feels and rhythms. Anyway you carve it up, Jubilee is bringing the party and you can expect fireworks. Listen to Jubilee streaming below, or catch her 11/4 at the Good Room with Danny Daze, Jimmy Edgar and Barnt, a show that's part of the Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival- Olivia Sisinni

Buzz Alert! Adiós Ghost plays Pianos residency on October 12,19 and 26

Pianos is one of the few NYC venues left that still dares to host emerging artist residencies (they actually do that in two rooms). We always pay attention to these bands, because the fact they were invited means they have a good live show and an expanding fan base, which are important factors for any band. Adiós Ghost is an adventurous Brooklyn band that plays an intricate brand of avant-pop that will excite the aural canals of those of you into Yeasayer and Animal Collective. Their recent EP 'Endless Return' is their first release since 2014, and it's a very interesting record. Employing electric and electronic instruments, and also saxophones at times, the band's arrangements shine for their transparent quality, and very processed references to African melodies and rhythms. Each song seems to be built on musical blocks that support and complement each other, resulting in airy and flickery compositions. Check out opening single 'Tension' below and don't miss one of their upcoming Pianos shows on October 12,19 and 26.

From YouTube to your ears, Echos share "Take" and debut album

After amassing over 20 million YouTube views from their numerious singles garnering many a reshare, Echos is finally giving electronica lovers the gift they've been waiting for - their official debut.

Coming up on October 14th, Echos will be releasing their self titled EP on Seeking Blue Records. Their collaborative relationship began a little over three years ago and with the singles they've churned out together so far, it's sure they'll continue giving us quality sounds from the electronica underground.

Today we're sharing "Take," the third single to come off of their upcoming EP. It premiered on Clash late last month and thematically teases a melancholic romanticism that's a prime focus on the rest of the EP.

Bridges & Powerlines release new LP 'National Fantasy' on 10.14 at Pianos

In NYC, bands are born and die on a daily basis. Sometimes, though, they return. Bridges and Powerlines has been making records since 2007, which means that they have been around for at least a decade (congrats are due). The band plays a brand of indie pop that interestingly blends elements of folk,rock and synth-pop, although the rootsy factor is definitely more pronounced in the upcoming LP's first single and title-track 'National Fantasy,' whose video is streaming here. The storyline follows a backpacking skateboarder on a quest for direction, appropriately referencing Spaghetti Western bothvisually and sonically. The band will be celebrating the new release with a show at Pianos on October 14th. - photo by Mara Abols
