Photos (for Impose): Gary War, Ducktails, and The Surprisers at Union Pool

More pictures of people from the New Jersey scene!  Ducktails sounded it good with a full band; it was the first time I’d seen that.  I kind of missed the textured sounds of his button-pushing, but it was still as good as we’ve come to expect from that crew.  I really like The Surprisers.  I […]

Recommended Saturday Show: Ducktails, Gary War, and The Surprisers at Union Pool

This show is free!  I mean, the poster says $8, but Matt Mondanile tweeted that it was free, so I’m gonna go with that.  Ducktails and Gary War are both totally sweet noise-ish acts that I’ve covered often on this blog, and they’re both hosting the show in support of new recordings.  The Surprisers have […]

Recommended Friday Show: Gary War, K Holes and The Super Vacations at Death By Audio

I saw K Holes at Cake Shop just a few short weeks ago, and they left quite the impression.  Full of nervous New York energy, not afraid of the free jazz, and totally rocking at the same time, I thought they were one of the more musically creative groups I’ve seen for awhile.  So much […]

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 […]

Recommended Friday Show: WAVVES, Woods, Blank Dogs, Nodzzz, and Gary War at Market Hotel

This is one of those “but all the cool kids are going to be there” kind of shows.  WAVVES is the type of band that would probably get made fun of on Hipster Runoff, but despite the (over) hype, he’s pretty darn good.  WAVVES is from California and plays incredibly lo-fi, buzzy surf rock that […]
