Meanwhile, Jamie Harley has made a video for Seek Magic's standout track, 'Bicycle.'

Katie Mullins plays residency at Pete's Candy Store in July

Light and airy, with a soft acoustic guitar giving way to soothing, rich vocals, Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Katie Mullins is sure to capture the attention of those who love the simplicity of chick indie rock with her latest album, Pastoral. At first listen the lyrics seem to be basic storytelling, offering anecdotes that remind you of easier, younger days, but Mullins has a way of catching your ear with a line that speaks straight to the heart. Her diverse background, spanning from acting to opera, is apparent in her experimental style, which comes across as strong as it is subtle. With a month-long residency quickly approaching at Pete’s Candy Store this July, Katie Mullins has seamlessly weaved her way through music, lyrics, and the Brooklyn indie scene. Katie's next show will be at cozy Northeast Kingdom on June 27. – CM

North Highlands plays Rooftop Films on June 19

We somehow missed this gorgeous video by North Highlands, an unpretentious Brooklyn band that sounds way more original than many other pretentious ones. In one word, this stuff sounds "FA-RESH"!!! Don't miss their en plain air show at Rooftop Films on June 19 at the New Design High School (350 Grand St. @ Essex).

Best of NYC #36: Anamanaguchi

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).

Anamanaguchi’s primary instrument is a hacked 1985 Nintendo, manipulated into creating the group’s own brand of energetic electro-punk. These 8 bit blips are later layered with guitars and added synths so to rattle speakers as well as maintaining their retro charm. Their new record Dawn Metropolis utilises these simple instruments to create wistful melodies that evoke feelings of adventure and excitement. “I am a hyperactive and really positive dude”, leading man Pete Berkman assures me. “The music I write tends to be a headphone-out from my brain; all extremely frantic, hyper-melodic, and uplifting.” - Dean Van Nguyen
