Recommended Wednesday Show: Tennis, La Sera, and Holiday Shores at Bowery Ballroom

Tennis has been polarizing.  Either you love them because they play breezy, digestible pop music, perfect for a warm summer’s walk on the beach, or you hate them because their music isn’t actually all that interesting, just fluffily accessible.  I say, why not enjoy them if you enjoy them?  Don’t herald them as the saviors [...]

My Favorite Songs of 2010: 40-31

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 [...]

Photos (for Impose): CMJ Day 3

As I mentioned yesterday (or very early this morning, as the case may be), CMJ Thursday was JAM PACKED.  I got to spend the day taking pictures at the Impose/Pop Jew party, and those will be up on Monday most likely.  After leaving The Woods, I decided that I was going to take it slow [...]

Recommended Friday Show: CMJ Day #4

It’s time to face facts.  You have some tough choices to make during the day on Friday.  First of all, there’s some great NYRM-approved bands playing at Cake Shop.  Rooftop Vigilantes, Your Youth, and Yellow Ostrich.  If that were a show during normal times, it would in and of itself be a can’t-miss.  I’m pretty [...]

Recommended Thursday Show: CMJ Day #3

At least CMJ Thursday is pretty straight-forward during the day.  It’s the I Guess I’m Floating (one of my very favorite blogs) Pianos day party.  It’s pretty much wall-to-wall worthwhile bands including Baths, Beach Fossils, Oberhofer, Teen Daze, Young Man, Braids, and Gobble Gobble. The nighttime gets much more complicated.  Of course, part of this [...]

Recommended Tuesday Show: CMJ Day #1

Welcome to day number one of CMJ.  There’s obviously a lot of music going on this week, and if you do a bit of planning ahead, it will be quite good.  While I feel that the quality of this year’s bands is a little bit thinner than in year’s past (more due to lack of [...]
