Electronic spiritual music from NYC: Maria Takeuchi

If I start telling you about an exciting new artist who's proposing to add a dose of spirituality to visually-based instrumental music experiments... you'll promise not to run in the other direction, right? Good, just checking.

Through a series of unlikely collaborations, artist Maria Takeuchi has given New York something we least expected. An insertion of the mysterious and appreciation for spiritual distance in new EP “Doppelgänger.” The record feels like the soundtrack to an unreleased David Fincher film, complete with dense noise-scapes and percussive vocoding. As she’s prone to: Takeuchi creates music for “Doppelgänger” you can see as much as listen to.

So, please don't be afraid. The music may exist in it's own world, but it's a place you'll want to visit too. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Win Win releases video for "After the Wait"

A not too new project from XXXChange and Devlin (of Devlin and Darko—Spank Rock’s tour DJs), NYC and Boston based electro-pop band Win Win has been gathering a good amount of buzz in 2012, after signing with Vice records. Their sound falls somewhere between MGMT's catchy pop constructions and Brian Eno's deadpan experimentation and delivery. Check out their new video of the single "After the Wait" here - also streaming below in mp3 format.

Glass Ghost plays Bowery Ballroom 11.14

Just like their music, Glass Ghost always seem to be on the verge of percolating out to the mainstream. From a mountain of press commenting on their impressive debut 'Idol Omen,' to gracing the cover of the Deli, there's no shortage of praise for the Brooklyn duo. Eliot Krimsky and Mike Johnson can't seem to find an instrument that won't make their music as lush and soulful as a spiritual, with the magic to cut like the diamond mentioned in their biggest song 'Like a Diamond.' And hey, if Sharon Van Etten is covering your songs ... you really can't go wrong. The band is playing with two of my favorite local acts (Strand of Oats, Yellow Ostrich) this Wednesday at Bowery Ballroom. See them there and buy tickets here. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Jon LaDeau plays Way Station 11.30

Blues traditionalist, country revivalist, Jon LaDeau is taking Brooklyn to the genres usually reserved for Austin, Chicago and New Orleans. This is a truly down home American style, presented with grit... irony-free. His latest record sticks to these styles with glee as LaDeau's guitar work shreds like a latter-day Stevie Ray Vaughn. At times, his voice recalls the George Harrison from 'All Things Must Pass,' a rocker who still understands the roots of his sound. Tracks like 'Lucille' and 'Grapple' especially carry with them the railroad grooves of delta blues under jackhammer guitar licks. See him when he plays his ongoing residency at Way Station in Prospect Heights on November 30th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Highlights from the female fronted NYC Tinderbox Festival: Jamie Bendell, Mal Blum, Charlene Kaye.

Back for its third year, Tinderbox Music Festival — entirely composed of female musicians and female-fronted bands — showcased this past Sunday a diverse amount of genres with acts from all over the country playing on 3 separate stages. The event started at 1pm with folkier bands taking the stage in the morning, including a stand out performance by NYC  Jamie Bendell (pictured and streaming), whose beautifully raw and innocent voice blended perfectly with catchy acoustic guitar riffs and a grittier sound from the back-up electric guitarist. Other standouts of the day included: Hello Phones, the powerful and punky ohian group Jasper the Colossal, the endearing and talented Mal Blum backed by drummer and guitarist, and one of the last bands of the day, the wonderfully energetic Charlene Kaye and the Brilliant Eyes. The headliner, Coco Rosie, ended the night with an emotional and experimental set that had the audience entranced.
