From the NYC digital submissions: Jerry Paper's music for robots

"People can care for each other, otherwise we're just totally f*cked." I couldn't have said it better had I tried, which I suppose is why I leave the gently rocking robot space jams to experts like L. W. Nathan.

In his latest project, Jerry Paper, using a combination of DX-7-style keys and canned calypso beats, the Brooklyn artist sounds something like what robots might listen to when doing their grocery shopping. Songs like 'Forget It' from his first full-length 'Vol. 1' project an icy coolness to the artist's musings on humanity's odd behaviors (like grocery shopping), while sometimes unexpectedly recalling McCartney's solo adventures with bursts of harmonic energy. As strange as some of this record can sit, I find it oddly comforting, and I can only imagine how fun this all must be live. Which is why I'll need to check him out as soon as he lands his spaceship back on Earth - i.e. on August 7th at Big Snow with Psychobuildings and Swanifant. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets) - This artist submitted music for review here.

Rad show at Bowery on 07.31: The Death Set, Anamanaguchi, Ninjasonik, Hussle Club and Figo

On Tuesday July 31st The Bowery Ballroom will host a show featuring a noteworthy list of Brooklyn based acts, co-headlined by three bands which emerged from the neighborhood's DIY scene in the late aughts. The variety of sounds on display, from The Death Set's furious spaz electro-punk (pictured and streaming) to the Atari powered pop of Anamanaguchi and Ninjasonik's electro-Hip Hop, is a testament to that scene's open mindness and omnivorous-ness. Opening acts are disco rockers Hussle Club and electro noise assaulters FIGO, who will get the atmosphere ready for what promises to be a super fun gig.
