Recommended Thursday Show: Yellow Ostrich at Pianos

This has definitely been a week for blogging about bands we already know and love.  Since they played my 2nd Anniversary Show, people have been blogging and tweeting up a storm about Yellow Ostrich, especially because of the Pianos residency.  This is the last night of it, so it’s a great opportunity to go out […]

Photos: NYRM 2nd Anniversary Show at Shea Stadium

Saturday night saw this blog’s 2nd anniversary show at Shea Stadium.  All the bands were great, Prince Rama were killer DJs who were nice enough to stay until 3AM and keep everyone dancing the whole time.  I had a really wonderful time, and I hope everyone else who came did, too.  I want to say […]

Recommended Saturday Show: NEW YORK ROCKMARKET’S 2ND ANNIVERSARY at Shea Stadium

Happy birthday New York Rockmarket!!!!!!  This blog just turned two years old, and to celebrate I’m throwing a party at Shea Stadium tonight.  We’ve got Translations and Yellow Ostrich, two bands that make beautiful soundscapes and have been favorites on this blog for a long time.  Then, we’ve got two relatively unknown up and comers, […]

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: 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 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 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: Yellow Ostrich at Glasslands

Take note now.  Start listening to Yellow Ostrich.  I posted his song “Yellow Ostrich” last April, but last night (Tuesday) was his very first ever New York City show, and I believe his first show with a drummer.  He manipulates loop petals and rhythms into beautiful pop builds that are surprisingly unlike your typical loop […]

MP3 Roundup: Future Islands, Hombres Nombres, Girlfriends, Yellow Ostrich, and Weekends

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GhtZt2HYkM&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0] It’s been far too long since I’ve done one of these posts, but I always get really nervous about them and put it off.  I’m afraid that the bands will either be too obvious or be too small and not be good enough, and no one will like the MP3s and everyone will stop […]
