Best of NYC #39: Liturgy

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record store personnel and DJs).

Liturgy are New York’s first black metal band to truly feel like New York—the hypnotic churn of Glenn Branca or Rhys Chatham; the transcendent ecstasy of La Monte Young’s Dream Syndicate; the art-punker cutter sprawl of the Swans or Suicide; the everydude psych of Oneida. Dudes are more likely to wear a Michael Jordan shirt than corpsepaint, more likely to attack metal with a noise-punkers zeal, more likely to make love than war. To wit: Drummer Greg Fox clearly values power and theatrics over speed, watching his BPM increase over the last two years has been nothing short of mesmerizing. - Christopher R. Weingarten


Heads Up, Hearts Down

I Fight Dragons have released a new video for their song “Heads Up, Hearts Down” which appears on their debut ep Cool Is Just a Number. The video is in 3D, and their label Photo Finish is including a free pair of IFD 3D glasses with each order.


Post Post and Pony Pants - Fuck Yeah! at Silk City June 8

Enjoy the weather folks because I’m predicting that it’s going to be a hot summer! That’s why I’m steppin’ out tonight to Silk City to rock out with the ladies of Post Post and Pony Pants. Yes - fellas, you’re invited too. Post Post is a group that we are happy to see gettin’ some buzz lately and with good reason. For such a young band, their chemistry is undeniable as they churn out some catchy-ass tunes, and Michelle Zauner’s troubled-teen vocals could certainly become the guilty pleasure of tight-jeaned, testosterone-filled indie rockers all over. What shouldn’t be any rockers’ guilty pleasure are Pony Pants because that’s what they came here to do. Well that and maybe “do drugs and fuck! Ah, what!?!” Silk City, 435 Spring Garden St., 9pm, $5, 21+ (Post Post Photo by Noah Temple)
