Record Store Day 2012

Happy Record Store Day!  Impose Magazine put together a great feature after asking people what their favorite record store is.  I put together this quick piece about my own favorite. My favorite and first real record store is the Princeton Record Exchange in Princeton, NJ.  I think technically my first record store was a Sam […]

MP3: Hotfox “Mountain Tiger”

Drawing by Molly Crawford Hotfox is a band that I found searching around for music for the show.  This song is straight-up pretty.  It’s a great study in how to gradually build emotion and layers in a song.  It’s the #1 reason I like this band.  The #2 reason I like this band is because […]

MP3: Alabama Shakes “On Your Way”

I discovered Alabama Shakes in September, and immediately thought to myself, “What a great find!  I’m going to post about them as soon as I get the blog back up and running.  They’ll be a great unknown gem to get started with.”  Turns out I was only slightly ahead of the curve.  I mean, it […]

Blog Is Back

Hello!  It’s been seventh months, but New York Rockmarket is up and running once again.  Over the last half year, I’ve spent all my musical energy music supervising a new show on ABC called Final Witness.  It’s going to air in March, and I can’t wait to share everything I’ve been working on with you. […]

Blog Hiatus

As you probably have (haven’t) noticed, I have not been doing a good job on here lately.  The last few months have been devoid of content except for show recommendations, and the past few weeks have been scant even on that front.  Despite this poor showing, I love writing this blog, and I think it […]

Recommended Friday Show: NYU Strawberry Festival

Lightning Bolt is crazy.  They have the loudest, rumbliest, most rocking live show, and it is something not to be missed.  Combine that with the outdoors on a nice spring day- the juxtaposition is sure to be magic!  Plus, you also get to see Pterodactyl, Ducktails, and So So Glos.  AND enjoy street booths manned […]

Photos (for Impose): Madalyn and Meredith Go to Shea Stadium

Awhile back, I shared a new comic with you about going to The Bell House with my friend Meredith.  We posted another installment last week, this time at The Bell House.  We saw some really excellent talented new bands, including Grand Rapids and Balkans.  Both definitely worth checking out.  And, of course, The So So […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Cults, Oberhofer, and Puro Instinct at Music Hall of Williamsburg

I’ll be honest, I’m mostly recommending this show because it’s free.  But that’s fantastic, because this is a pretty damn good quality show for no money!  You have to RSVP here, and entrance is based on capacity, but Cults are fun and Oberhofer is one of those deservedly-hot-right-now young bands that it seems like we’ve […]

Recommended Saturday Show: The Fresh & Onlys, Young Prisms, and Bass Drum of Death at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Technically, The Crocodiles are headlining this show, but what I would do is go for the first three bands.  The Fresh & Onlys!  Young Prisms!  Bass Drum of Death!  That is some good rock n roll on a nice, big stage with a nice, big soundsystem.  I’ve been listening to a lot of Fresh & […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Woodsman at Cake Shop

This show happened, but I wrote this up and forgot to post it.  And the MP3 is really good: When your average indie music fan is presented with instrumental, more experimental music, I think the general reaction tends to be, “Okay, that’s nice, but I’m probably not going to listen to that, and it would […]
