A gifted Brooklyn songwriter: Charlotte Cornfield

Charlotte Cornfield’s songs are going to pair well with this road trip season. Her lyrics are imaginative and vivid, and these tunes seem to create their own music video in your head when you listen, perfect for day dreaming on a long car ride. Some of her more Americana tracks are reminiscent of classic folk songwriters, like Dylan and Young. Her most recent album “Two Horses” has a balance of pensive folk ballads, and a few up-tempo folk-rock tracks. Being a gifted lyricist and a unique and memorable vocalist, are the two keys to success as a folk songwriter, and Charlotte definitely has both qualities. - Paul Jordan Talbot

Think about death with NYC's Ancient History

In the States it seems like hardly anybody is familiar with the phenomenal British band Tindersticks, which could be described as a less dramatic, less soulful, more spoken-word version of Nick Cave's tense, orchestral noir rock. With this precedent, Brooklyn band Ancient History - which offer a similar formula, but slowed down to an almost ambient extreme - should probably think about moving to the UK, where Tindersticks had a pretty good career in the aughts, and Cave got appreciated WAY earlier than in the US. I guess those decadent Europeans can somehow deal with this kind of darkness, while - it's true! - a majority of Americans only dig upbeat stuff - I learned that the hard way at poker night. - PDG

Brooklyn's Free Time announces release + tour

When you listen to Free Time, you'll think you're occupying a space in lead singer Dion Nania's mind, and are hearing the song directly from there. For the video to the latest track in the band's odyssey of slowly moving beach rock, 'I Lost Again' (song streaming below) you're journeying with him as he picks up bandmates scattered over various floors on a large freight elevator. His mind works in mysterious ways... check it out here and see the band when they play Shea Stadium on June 21. The band is schedule to release their self titled debut album on Underwater Peoples on June, and tour the East Coast that same month. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Notes from Bird Courage's show at Union Hall on May 10

Erik Meier’s signature plangent wail could be heard echoing up the stairs from Union Hall’s small basement venue. Even over the crowd chatter Bird Courage’s songs sailed above the din creating an ethereal nostalgia. The band looked like they might have just rolled out of a boxcar together, and their stripped-down instrumentation complemented the aesthetic. From the melodica to the bowed acoustic guitar or glockenspiel to the muted floor tom and tambourine, bandmates Sam Saffery and Sean McMahon offered emotive and chaotic accompaniment to Erik’s acoustic guitar and ukulele compositions. By the middle of the set the crowd patter had extinguished entirely, and at the end when the band left the stage to form a circle in the middle of the crowd for their finale, even newcomers joined in the heartwarming refrain, “Home sweet home is the lonely road if your only home is the lonely road.” I wouldn't be surprised if a few of them followed the band back to their boxcar. - BrokeMc
