Recommended Tuesday Show: Surf City, Darlings, and Little Racer at Glasslands

Darlings have a new EP out!  That’s good news, especially for anyone who’s ever listened to Yeah I Know. There are truly some puzzling things about this whole indie rock game, and one of life’s biggest mysteries is how terrible, terrible Brooklyn bands keep blowing up and Darlings haven’t yet.  This is one of the […]

Recommended Friday Show: Powers (of These Are Powers), The Tony Castles, Grooms, Darlings, Class Actress, and Snakes Say Hiss at Death By Audio

There’s a whole mess of great shows happening tomorrow (Woods and Ducktails at Monster Island, Eola and friends at Silent Barn, Oh My Rockness show at Pianos), but I wanted to recommend this one.  It’s a show in memory of Ariel Panero, a promoter in New York and member of Tough Knuckles, who recently passed […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Sisters, Weekends, Grooms, and Darlings at Dead Herring

This Sisters’ record release show at Dead Herring is going to be bompin.  Sisters, Weekends, Groom, and Darlings?  Right?  RIGHT?!  Such a great lineup in such a great space!  The perfect Saturday night. MP3: “Glue” – Sisters

Recommended Friday Shows: Northside Festival Mania

I couldn’t choose one show to recommend for Friday.  You couldn’t possibly only go to one show tomorrow night.  Northside has packed Williamsburg with an absurd amount of good bands this Friday, and I’m going to give you a run down of all the ones I think are worth dropping by.  First and foremost, Famous […]

Photos (for Impose): Sisters and Darlings at Brooklyn Bowl

You can check out my photos from the Sisters/Darlings show at Brooklyn Bowl last week over at the wonderful Impose.  It was a good show.  As I expected, neither of the bands drew out a large enough crowd to even remotely make Brooklyn Bowl feel un-empty, but the show still had a way better vibe […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Sisters and Darlings at Brooklyn Bowl

Darlings are a long-running NYRM favorite, and it’s been a long time since I’ve recommended one of their shows.  AND I’m hoping it’s been long enough that we might get to hear a few new songs at this show.  I have high hopes that this band will evolve into something even better on the next […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Darlings, The Sundelles, Total Slacker, Big Troubles, and My Teenage Stride at Cake Shop

If this show isn’t a who’s who of NYRM’s favorites, then I don’t know what is.  I love all of these bands and blog about them at least fairly incessantly, so I feel that this show requires minimal description.  It’s a fundraiser for these bands’ journeys to SXSW.  They’re only playing twenty minute sets (which […]

My Favorite Albums of 2009: 10-1

Well, this is it.  My top ten favorite albums of 2009.  There was so much great music this year that it feels strange to narrow it down to so few albums.  I really did love each of these though, and I hope you do, too.  Let me know what you think.  I probably won’t be […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 20-11

To recap:  As for My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009, I made a few rules for myself.  First, a band can only appear once.  Also, this is purely about singles I enjoy.  For instance, I would never put Harlem Shakes’ Technicolor Health on my favorite albums list, but “Sunlight” made it pretty high on this list […]

Recommended Wednesday Show (Plus Cool New Band Alert): Gray Goods and Darlings at Cake Shop

You heard it here first.  Gray Goods are sweet.  I know almost nothing about this band (their myspace page only has 3,000 hits), but I know that I like them.  They only have three songs on their myspace.  On first listen, they’re pretty sloppy.  All over the place with out of tune singing and well-worn […]
