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: 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 […]

Recommended Monday Show: Wavves, The Smith Westerns, and Total Slacker at Bowery Ballroom

Wavves hater or not, you have to admit that his new album, King of the Beach, is at least a lot of fun.  Personally, I think it’s more than that.  I might even say it’s a perfect slacker anthem album, and it will be on repeat in my apartment until the weather stops making me […]

Wavves.  Wavves, Wavves, Wavves, Wavves, Wavves.  Are you really dating Best Coast or is it all just a publicity stunt?  Why exactly did you sign to Mountain Dew Records?  And are you flat-ironing your hair now?  It kind of looks like you are.  So many questions.  One resounding answer.  A pretty sweet rock and roll […]

Recommended Thursday Show: Wavves, Cloud Nothings, and Dom at The Knitting Factory

Northside Festival has begun!  What does this mean?  So.  Many.  Shows.  If you’d like to see a lot of music this weekend, it’s definitely worth it to get a $50 badge.  If you’re just looking to go to one, well, it’s probably best to just get tickets for that show.  Unless, however, you want to […]

My Favorite Albums of 2009: 10-1

Well, this is it.  My top ten favorite albums of 2009.  There was so much great music this year that it feels strange to narrow it down to so few albums.  I really did love each of these though, and I hope you do, too.  Let me know what you think.  I probably won’t be […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 10-1

To recap:  As for My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009, I made a few rules for myself.  First, a band can only appear once.  Also, this is purely about singles I enjoy.  For instance, I would never put Harlem Shakes’ Technicolor Health on my favorite albums list, but “Sunlight” made it pretty high on this list […]

Photos: Ganglians and Wavves at Santos Party House

I’m not sure what the best part of tonight was.  It was either the fact that Wavves totally and absolutely rocked, or it was one very special conversation I overhead.  A not-s0-young man with the exact same haircut as Nathan Williams (seriously, exactly the same, shaved on the sides with a ducktail in the back) […]

Photos: Vampire Hands, These Are Powers, Wavves

When I mentioned I was going to Market Hotel to see Wavves, my co-worker told me, and I quote, “that place is a death trap.”  Well, she’s completely correct, but it was a very fitting venue in which to experience Wavves.  I hate to say anything bad about the place, mostly because Todd P, indie […]

Recommended Saturday Show(s): Your Weekend Wavves Strategy

This weekend is all about Wavves.  He’s pretty much the buzziest thing out there right now (along with POBPAH).  The backlash has already hit after the Pitchfork Best New Music, but I love his album.  The first track alone is such a dark, angled introduction to what I see as a an album that captures […]
