Plume Giant releases "Callithump" at The Rock Shop on 12.05

Plume Giant is a trio of multi-instrumentalists/vocalists who recently relocated to the city after graduating from Yale. From their theatrical grace to their retro-fitted instrumentals and rich vocal harmonies, they're not really like anyone else in the city. They bring a refreshing finesse to the table and a lot of fun to the stage. With Calithump and its magnetic a capellas and swaying ways of a 60s summer daydream, Plume Giant easily charmed their way into the hearts of the NYC music scene. Probably the most endearing act to join the local folk parade this year, they’ve earned themselves a warm welcome to their new home. Don't miss them live at The Rock Shop on December 5th, when they'll be celebrating the release of their new album "Callithump". Check out the song "Kensico Dam from the new EP - TM

Ducktails announces release show for "The Flower Lane" LP - LPR, 01.23

Glo-Fi/Chill Wave fans should mark January 23rd on their calendar, because that's when New Jersey's Ducktails will celebrate the release of their first album on Domino Records with a show at Le Poisson Rouge. Started as a solo project by Real Estate's Matt Mondanile, Ducktails evolves with this album into a more collaborative effort. The preview title-track (streaming below) loses the low fidelity component present in all the band's previous releases, but gains big time in the songwriting and production departement, so much so that we may want to call this "Dream Pop" rather than Glo-Fi. Look out for the release of another single before the release.

Delicious Audio Feature: Foxygen and the Recording Process

We've never really been that much into revival music, until we heard Foxygen's "Take the Kids Off Broadway" (which was our Album of the Month in April 2012 - the band graces the cover of our Fall 2012 NYC issue). But is this revival music anyway? To a certain extend, it is, since the NYC/Olympia duo's references to the rock sound of the 60s and 70s are undeniable. But Foxygen's way to unfold songs that constantly evolve from one brilliant melody to another, their imaginative kaleidoscopic DIY production, and Sam France's vocal flair trascend influences to conjure up something that encompasses past and present to become timeless. We were curious to ask these guys some questions about how they record their music - you can find their answers on Delicious Audio.

Outernational headlines the Knit on 11.29

It’s time to pump up the enjambment! Are you starved of syllables? Vacant of verbiage? Bereft of that Boom-Bap? Fret not, lovers of lyrics and revelers in rhyme, a collection of some of New York’s most potent wordsmiths is set to take the stage at the Knitting Factory Brooklyn this Thursday Nov. 29th. Headlined by Outernational, whose new EP was produced by RATM Tom Morello (can you tell?), and featuring support by the likes of Beans (formerly of Anti-pop Consortium), Mike Ladd, and MINDSpray's Prop Anon, it promises to pack more syllables per measure than a Micro-Machines commercial. Seriously, though, these guys are dope. Stream the EP titletrack below, and watch a video here.  - BrokeMC

From the NYC digital submissions: Hungry Hands

Hungry Hands sounds like they're probably nice guys, but of course you never know. It seems they've been going through a lot of changes lately. For most of their latest record 'Plumb, Restless,' singer JJ Byars negotiates all the oddities that come with suddenly finding you're an adult. From opener 'Second Guessing' (streaming below), to mysterious closer 'Little One,' this is a band in awe of how existence evolves, and what it might mean. With the lilting harmonies of Local Natives and Dismemberment Plan's narrative of life's various frustrations, Hungry Hands displays an often difficult unease that follows most life changes. But in epic jams like 'Grape,' their intelligence and lush soundscapes make the changes all the more palatable. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets) - This band submitted their music for review here
