New Shadow Band 7" Available for Streaming & Download

Led by Mike Bruno, the musical collective of Shadow Band, which also features Megan Biscieglia (Bad Braids), recently released a new 7” via Mexican Summer. The pair of songs, “Eagle Unseen” and “Moonshine,” enacts a somewhat drafty psych-folk mysticism. These tracks breathe in the mysterious air of the forest, hypnotically wandering among the foliage, as the warmly interwoven percussion, acoustic guitar, keys, etc. draws one into the shadows.

EZTV unveils new video for 'Reason to Run,' tours & plays Bowery on 12.07

Here's something our many readers into dreamy music enjoy: EZTV's new video for single 'Reason to Run.' The camera follows a cowboy lonesomely exploring New York City - is he a Trump voter? That's not what the video is about (of course he is!), rather, it's about looking at the city with new eyes. After touring for most of the fall (in Europe too!) the band is currently taking a deserved two week break before embarking on the final leg of their tour, which will culminate in a performance at the Bowery Ballroom on 12.07.

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.
