Brooklyn rapper Josh The Word drops video for new single “Fall in”

Brooklyn rapper Josh the Word pushes forward through the seasons with sharp lyrical delivery and smooth soul vocals.  His new album “Psyched Out” is emblematic of that New York sound that has been made popular with everyone from J57 to Junk Science.  It’s boom bap with equal parts earnest candor and quirky imagery.  In another beautiful narrative video, Josh takes us to the fringe of both civilization and civility.  Hip Hop has always had a combative method of escapism. Dig out your ski-mask and prepare to dig a little deeper.  - BrokeMC

BUZZ ALERT! Indie artist Roxiny drops new video for song "Lights"

We're going to go ahead and call it, NYC-based artist Roxiny is one to watch. With powerful but tempered vocals, Roxiny produces haunting, poignant music that is at times reminiscent of Reflektor-era Arcade Fire, but with some serious teeth.  The indie musician recently released a new video for her single "Lights," a song that opens with subtle synths-as-sirens, and was written in response to the Chelsea Bombing . Shot in black and white, the clip showcases NYC as told by Roxiny--highlighting abandoned buildings and small laundromats, and celebrating the way her message penetrates the city in a fierce, grassroots way. Check out the video for "Lights" streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

NYC's Spooky and the Bear is a dark-synth/ambient duo, with a penchant for surprisingly catchy tunes.

The result is 5 tracks of offbeat electro-dance pop. Stream "Water" off the new EP below and see them live at Nolita's Epistrophy on December 17th. - Olivia Sisinni

pronoun performs at Sleep Well Records’ Silent Night Fest 12.10

“Now I’m snowed in while you’re out there in California. Stuck here thinking about how you said I did nothing for you,” Alyse Vellturo sings on pronoun’s “Snowed In // There’s No One New Around You.” Though it may be a little early to expect snow, the sentiment in pronoun’s music is always relevant. The Brooklyn artist captures the emotional sincerity of earlier work by acts like Death Cab For Cutie and Tegan and Sara, mixing it with the propulsive, dance-inspired back beats that have characterized both group’s more recent output. On December 10th, pronoun will perform at Zone One at Elsewhere for Silent Night Fest, hosted by Vellturo’s own Sleep Well Records. While the odds of getting snowed in at that point are slim, pronoun can be counted on for an emotionally stirring performance. – Cameron Carr, photo by Sofie Vasquez
