NYC Artists on the rise: Cut Worms open for Foxygen at Rough Trade on 12.01

Cut Worms is the stage name of a Brooklyn based singer songwriter whose identity isn't discolsed online - luckily for us, his songs are. The young gentleman presents himself solo on stage, sometimes performing accompanied by only his guitar, others playing along pre-recorded tracks. He offers a brand of charming folk-pop revival that truly sounds as if originated in the early sixties - his recording even feature the vocal distortion typical of that era. Since April 2015 he's been incessantly releasing digital singles as part of the 'Soft Boiled Demos,' which now add up to over ten tracks all wrapped up in this vintage aura and his songwriting style that flirts with the timeless classics of folk. Masters of revival Foxygen must have noticed, since Cut Worms will be opening for them at Rough Trade on December 1st. Check out single 'Mad About You' below.

Mountebank Gets Things Moving Quickly With Debut EP

The definition of a 'mountebank': a flamboyant deceiver; someone who attracts customers through tricks or joke. While the new folk-influenced quartet who go by that name certainly dont need to use deception to gain an audience, they are flamboyant and light-hearted, which shines through definitively in their music.  Formed in the Summer of 2016 after other music projects fell through, Mountebank recently released their debut EP Mountebank: Live From Lake Wobegon, which straddles elements of outlaw country, post-pop, and garage rock.  The glue holding this tapestry of influences together is the positivity and joviality found in the DNA of the group that makes their charm irresistible.  Mountebank is on a tear, playing shows, writing new music, and forging ahead with their new project that doesn't need tricks or gimmicks to gain new fans.

Acoustic Awareness in a Beautiful Venue

The Old Church is quite a beautiful venue. Sounds bounce of the historic Carpenter Gothic church's walls with sonic ease, making it an ideal location for amplifying even the softest of tones. On Saturday, the Old Church will be host to a night of acoustics, meant to benefit a city-wide epidemic.

Spreading awareness acoustically, And And And, Ill Lucid Onset and Alyce Fernley will be gracing the Old Church's large, organ-dominated stage to play sets for Human Solutions. The local nonprofit provides services to low-income and houseless individuals within Portland and granted the city's current housing state of emergency, the nonprofit could use all the support it can get to help support those most in need.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased here or at the door. For more information on how to volunteer with Human Solutions or other ways to help, visit their website at humansolutions.org.

New Track: "Under The Rug" - Steady Hands

Steady Hands will release a double album that includes their first four EPs. However, on Rude Boys of Bar Rock, which will be released on December 9 via Lame-O Records, you'll also find a brand new single. “Under The Rug” captures a folk-punk sense of yearning, as strolling acoustic guitar is reinforced by momentous backend that leads the way to the surging,  energetic release of electric guitar. Steady Hands is slated to appear at Ortlieb's on December 4, along with Thin Lips, Cold Climb It, and The Lame-O’s.
