Photos: Lower Dens, Ducktails, and Glory Girls at Music Hall of Williamsburg

These pictures are almost already a week old, so I’ll be brief.  I was so pleased to find out that Lower Dens was headlining a show at MHOW, and even more pleased when I saw that the venue was almost nearly full for them.  I’m not even sure how it happened.  It was only two [...]

Recommended Friday Show: Lower Dens, Ducktails, and Glory Girls at Music Hall of Williamsburg

Another one of our favorites has arrived.  I’m not wild about recommending shows at the bigger venues (that’s not really what’s at the essence of this blog, I hope), but it’s so, so satisfying to do when it’s for a tiny band that has finally come into their own.  Jana Hunter has been weaving together [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Photos (for Impose): CMJ Day 2

Oh my goodness.  Now that I’ve just gotten home from day 3 of CMJ, day 2 seems like ages ago.  I can hardly remember what happened.  Actually, there was some pretty good stuff, and you can check out my visual record of it over at Impose right here.  I started the day off at Chocolate [...]

Recommended Wednesday Show: CMJ Day #2

1AM and I just stepped in for the first time since 10AM this morning.  These festival thingys are pretty exhausting.  Luckily for most everyone, tomorrow has a lot of good shows, but only a few real standouts.  I definitely recommend picking somewhere and staying put, at least as the nighttime is concerned.  If you’re lucky [...]

Photos: Future Islands, Double Dagger, and Lower Dens at Death By Audio

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 [...]
