The Minks offer up a distinctly Nashville sound on "Sweet Talk"

Sweet Talk, the first recordings released by The Minks (featuring local everywhereman and Deli favorite Ron Gallo), is a mixture of styles that both makes sense and works pretty damn well. The distinctly Nashville pair of songs on the EP bring together the city's two dominant styles at the moment—there's the bluesy country side we all know so well, but it's balanced out by the extra-fuzzy garage psych that's gotten a reputation for itself in the past few years. There's no hint of trying too hard to make a statement or anything like that; it comes off as a natural result of the band's surroundings, whittled down into song form by incredibly capable hands. -Austin Phy

Forth Wanderers plays Mercury Lounge on June 20

In the past two years, North Jersey band Forth Wanderers has had quite the run. They received a shout-out from Lorde, landed in our own picks for best NYC artists of 2015, and just finished a North American tour with Adult Mom. Not bad for a bunch of kids still in college! Those unfamliar, though, might think they're older, given that their 2014 debut LP Tough Love is a solid blend of indie pop, rock and folk. The band's sound is centered around the two electric guitars, which provide a layered quality without stepping on each other's toes, and the voice of Ava Trilling, whose adorable alto conveys emotional weight to each song with a fatalistic tone that prevents her from indulging in overly dramatic antics. Forth Wanderers will play Mercury Lounge on June 20 and announced a yet to be released EP back in December - we are looking forward to both! — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Kami Maltz premiers new video for “Rain” + plays Pete's Candy's on 06.18

Kami Maltz has one of those voices that dances through the air like a hummingbird flitting from flower to flower.  In the video for “Rain” from 2014’s Kami Maltz EP, Kami stands more or less motionless as images of nature fade and meld over her, a relentless dream, a treacherous magnificence.  “It was your dream and I followed through, this is where we’ve come.  The story’s still undone,” she sings with a knowing smirk - you can hear it live at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg on June 18th. - BrokeMC

FAIR WTHR to celebrate EP release at Rockwood Music Hall on July 07.02

Minimalist doesn't always mean simple, and FAIR WTHR's music is a textbook example of this. The NYC folk-pop band thrives on instrumental arrangements that don't take up too much space, giving vocalist Sarah Kang all the room she needs to leave hearts heavy with a voice that's a little reminiscent of Frankie Cosmos'. At times, though, the instruments take center stage such as on "Mama" where the band shifts dyanmics, gradually building their signature dreamy folk pop into a heavier, electric folk-rock. This band has the ability of writing songs that seem simple during casual listening, but then have a lot to offer after doing a little digging. FAIR WTHR will celebrate their already released EP at the Rockwood Music Hall on July 2nd. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber
