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: 20-11

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: Yeasayer at Bowery Ballroom

I’m recommending this show solely so I can justify spending more time looking at the above picture.  Not actually, but Ira and Anand with long hair coming out of the mist is a pretty phenomenal image.  Anyways, this first of two NY Yeasayer shows has been sold out for ages, but if you can manage […]

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 […]

My Favorite 50 Songs of 2009: 50-41

First, a word on lists.  Lists are essentially useless, but people who love music often love making them.  It’s impossible to make an ultimate “best” list, because all music means something different to different people.  But that doesn’t mean there’s no such thing a useful list. There’s a few different “best of” lists I could […]

Photos: Yeasayer and Tanlines at The Guggenheim

I know I’m pretty late with this post, but I blame it on all of the Halloween festivties.  Friday night’s show at the Guggenheim was spectacularly fun, at least from my perspective.  Sure, it was a bit pricey, but it was just so darn cool to get to do something I love to do in […]

Photos: Yeasayer and Amazing Baby at Pier 54

Yeasayer is a good band.  Watching them play on the huge stage at Pier 54 on the Hudson (not the East River, as I mistakenly posted yesterday), I wondered what it must have been like to see them in tiny Brooklyn venues just a few years ago.  They have so much stage presence that they […]

Recommended (Free!) Thursday Show: Yeasayer at Pier 54

Though I wouldn’t blame you for going to see Blondie and Pat Benatar’s free show tomorrow (as one of my co-workers put it, Yeasayer will be alive in ten years…), I have to stick with my old-time favorites and recommend Yeasayer’s free show on the East river.  Say what you will, but I love the […]

Recommended Friday Show: BROOKLYN VS. BALTIMORE!!!!!!!!

These days, everyone is saying that Baltimore is the new old Williamsburg: broken down, not-yet-gentrified, and chock-full of bands and artists.  Dan Deacon decided to put that to the test and rounded up his merry band of Baltimorians (is that right?) to have an all-out indie rock smackdown with Brooklyn.  For Baltimore, the line-up is […]

Hot New Band Alert: Suckers

Suckers have been playing around Brooklyn and New York with bands like Yeasayer, MGMT, and Chairlift for over two years now, but haven’t quite broken out yet.  Check out the band now – it’s only a matter of time before they blow up, too.  With now-typical slurred indie vocals, guitar tones that remind me of […]
