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 Thursday Show: Let's Wrestle and Blair at Bowery Ballroom

Let’s Wrestle and Blair?  These are two bands I’ve been talking up for awhile.  AND Let’s Wrestle is from the UK, so your chances to see them are somewhat limited.  And Blair is so sweet.  And I can’t seem to get enough of the Let’s Wrestle song below.  So okay, it’s off to their show! […]

Recommended Monday Show: Let's Wrestle, Casiokids, The Wave Pictures, and Banjo or Freakout at Knitting Factory

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RN4-WlzHME&hl=en_US&fs=1&] I recently posted Let’s Wrestle’s latest single, “We Are the Men You’ll Grow To Love Soon.”  It’s an irresistible cocky rock number, and the band has definitely grown on me immensely in the past few weeks.  Definitely on my list of groups to check out for a second time at SXSW.  The band’s goofy […]

MP3 Roundup: Let's Wrestle, Laura Veirs, Shark?, and Yeasayer

The song that I REALLY want to post in this mp3 roundup is the first track off of Titus Andronicus’ upcoming record, “A More Perfect Union.”  A friend just sent it to me and it’s absolutely, full body shivers, wonderfully good.  Especially if you grew up in New Jersey.  However, I’m not going to post […]

Photos: Knight School, Let's Wrestle, and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart played to a sold-out crowd at the Bell House this past Friday night.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially since these guys were unknown just a few months ago.  They seemed really, really thankful and a bit staggered by their sudden popularity.  As soon as they picked […]

Recommended Friday Show: The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Let's Wrestle, and Knight School at The Bell House

There is so much going on this pre-SXSW weekend!  Lots of bands play in NYC to get ready for the big week ahead.  This Friday there’s tons of great bands to choose from: Les Savy Fav at Brooklyn Masonic Temple and even Titus Andronicus and The Wrens on one bill.  But, I have to whole-heartedly […]

Recommended Wednesday Show: Let's Wrestle at Maxwell's

I’ve been hearing a lot about Let’s Wrestle recently.  I was a bit reluctant to check them out because they’ve been so buzzy, but once I saw that the first song on this British band’s MySpace was called “I Wish I Was In Husker Du.”  Yes!  Grade-A rock reference.  They play Brit rock with swagger- think […]

SXSW Sampler, Part I

I’ve been a bit busy this week preparing for SXSW.  I want to bring you the very best coverage I can (partying it up with Racheal Ray and The Hold Steady) so I’ve been lacking a bit on the writing this week.  I’d like to attempt to make it up to you by putting together […]
