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 […]

Photos (For Impose Magazine): Ducktails, Gary War, and Infinity Window

From hence forward, I will sometimes take photos for the good people over at Impose Magazine.  I’ll let you know when they go up, but you’ll have to head on over to Impose to check out the pics.  Also make sure to check out their other content, because those guys have killer taste.  If you […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 40-31

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 Thursday Show: Ducktails, Gary War, and Infinity Window at Cake Shop

I’m a big fan of Ducktails.  Matt Mondanile, also the guitarist in Real Estate, creates equally breezy but less accessible tunes as his bigger-band brethren.  If you like Real Estate, you will like him, and a trip to Cake Shop will be well worth it.  Infinity Window plays mostly intense sound-scapey songs and Gary War […]

CMJ: Wednesday Night's Recommended Shows

I have two picks for tomorrow night, and I’d suggest somehow running around between the two of them to optimize your band-age (though they are kind of far apart).  By the way, these shows are only free if you have a badge.  First, Fool’s Gold, Suckers, and New Villager at Bowery Poetry Club.  Fool’s Gold […]

Recommended Friday Show: ??!!!!#@$$**????

It’s official.  Every good show this week is happening on Friday.  This is one of the first times where I am really, truly undecided on what to recommend.  Luckily, my own band is playing so I won’t have to make any tough decisions myself, but I’ll try to give you as much information as possible […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Real Estate at The Annex

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend.  I know I did, except for the break from blogging.  I didn’t have too much time to myself to use the computer at my parent’s house, but I’m back in the BK now.  There were a lot of good shows over the weekend I’m sorry to […]

Photos: Ducktails, PAK, and Noise Nomads

Just got a brand new lens and flash for my camera.  I’m still figuring it all out (especially for the first few of these pics), but I’m happy report that the picture quality on this site should improve significantly.  Last night’s show at Silent Barn was quite a nice little noise set.  I could only […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Ducktails at Silent Barn!!!!

I’ve had this show on my calendar for weeks and weeks.  Ducktails is the project of a lone New Jerseyite, almost exactly my age.  Maybe that’s why I identify with his tropically breezy noise tunes, but I just love this kid.  I’ve never been to Silent Barn before, and I am so pumped to finally […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Ducktails at Cakeshop

Tomorrow’s recommended show of the day is Ducktails at Cakeshop.  There are a lot of other excellent bands playing on Saturday, but this show is free and Ducktails is an exciting up-and-comer.  You’ll enjoy his music, often described as tropical psychedelia, if you enjoy artists like Panda Bear, Animal Collective, or El Guincho. I’ve made […]
