Soft Glas tours with Sports, brings electric soul to Mercury on 12.13 and Baby's on 12.14

The music of Soft Glas -- a.k.a. producer and songwriter Joao Gonzalez -- evokes dreamy and funky vibes that both excite and chill the nerves. It's music that works well in a full length format, and Joao seems aware of it, since Orange Earth, released in September, is the project's third LP. Live, the musician plays/samples/loops a series of instruments on top of electronic tracks, and does it in an entertaining fashion - so much so that Soft Glas has was recently asked to tour in support of Oklahoma-based group Sports, playing shows in Los Angeles and Baltimore. He'll return to NYC on December 13th at Mercury Lounge, and then on the 14th, in Brooklyn at Baby's All Right. Catch either show if you can; otherwise, stream Soft Glas's latest single "Perks of Being a Sunflower" below. Close your eyes, and daydream. - Will Sisskind

Folk-pop trio The Happy Fits lands Pianos residency in December

Charming NYC trio The Happy Fits plays an intriguing blend of folk, vintage pop and funk/soul. Their sound is sparse but - as you can hear in single "While You Fade Away" (streaming below) - it can be pretty punchy. If the bass in that track sounds a little bright to you, it's because it's not actually a bass, but a plucked cello, which impersonates the other four string instruments in all their songs. The young group has a fun live show and simple but sophisticated melodies everybody can relate to, and these are certainly two of the reasons why Pianos decided to give them a residency during the month of December. The next live performance will be on December 12, if you dig it, do not miss it!

Brooklyn rapper Josh The Word drops video for new single “Fall in”

Brooklyn rapper Josh the Word pushes forward through the seasons with sharp lyrical delivery and smooth soul vocals.  His new album “Psyched Out” is emblematic of that New York sound that has been made popular with everyone from J57 to Junk Science.  It’s boom bap with equal parts earnest candor and quirky imagery.  In another beautiful narrative video, Josh takes us to the fringe of both civilization and civility.  Hip Hop has always had a combative method of escapism. Dig out your ski-mask and prepare to dig a little deeper.  - BrokeMC
