My Favorite Albums of 2010

I almost didn’t make this list.  I mean, come on.  It’s New Year’s Eve.  No one cares anymore.  Everyone’s just getting psyched for Ariel Pink or Titus tonight (you should definitely go to one of those shows, by the way), and looking forward to the whole music cycle starting over again in 2011.  I swear […]

My Favorite Songs of 2010: 10-1

Welcome to The New York Rockmarket’s end of the year list spectacular.  This is when I talk about how lists are fun but ultimately meaningless, and apologize for not posting the last few days because I’ve been compiling my lists.  This is also where I talk about favorites as opposed to best, like I did last […]

Recommended Sunday Show: 4th of July at Shea Stadium

Happy 4th of July!  If you’re not baking an American flag cake to take to your friend’s bar b que this afternoon, definitely consider spending American’s birthday at Shea Stadium tonight.  The lineup is patently ridiculous, with Future Islands and So So Glos, just to name a few.  So if you need some rock bands […]

Nights like last night will save rock and roll.  One obviously unique thing about rock music right now is that there have to be more bands than ever before.  Even in 1998, you couldn’t just pour your musical heart out into a computer like you can today.  Fans only heard music if the band had […]

MP3 Roundup: Future Islands, Hombres Nombres, Girlfriends, Yellow Ostrich, and Weekends

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GhtZt2HYkM&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0] It’s been far too long since I’ve done one of these posts, but I always get really nervous about them and put it off.  I’m afraid that the bands will either be too obvious or be too small and not be good enough, and no one will like the MP3s and everyone will stop […]

CMJ: Recommended Saturday Shows

I took last night off.  I fell asleep in front the newest It’s Always Sunny at 10, awoke two hours later to zombie-walk into my bed, and just woke up again a few minutes ago.  This CMJ business is a lot more tiring than I remember it being.  I hope everyone rested up for today, […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Impose Magazine Party at BKLYN Yard

Impose Magazine is throwing a really, really great party Saturday night.  Take a break from After the Jump Fest and check out some of my absolute favorite Brooklyn, New Jersey, and Baltimore bands.  Air Waves, Screaming Females, Sharon Van Etten, Boogie Boarder, Future Islands…basically the entire lineup should be entirely entertaining.

Recommended Friday Show: BROOKLYN VS. BALTIMORE!!!!!!!!

These days, everyone is saying that Baltimore is the new old Williamsburg: broken down, not-yet-gentrified, and chock-full of bands and artists.  Dan Deacon decided to put that to the test and rounded up his merry band of Baltimorians (is that right?) to have an all-out indie rock smackdown with Brooklyn.  For Baltimore, the line-up is […]
