Small Black

28 Oct

courtesy of myspaceNew Chain is the debut long-player from New York’s Small Black. Richly coloured and thickly layered, it is an absorbing, eclectic and obsessive body of work. The Brooklyn group have succeeded in melting together locked and popped drum-shudder, gauzy spirographic synths and subtly contagious, half-remembered melody into ebullient bursts of evocative, subliminal and thoroughly modern pop. The songs are equally informed by the rhythmic bounce and stylistic swagger of more left-leaning contemporary radio rap and R’n’B as it is the submerged kaleidoscopic swirl of the early 4AD dream factory.

Make sure to catch Small Black at the Trunkspace on 11/2

Cloud Nothing

14 Sep

Cloud Nothing is the brainchild of 18 year old Cleveland resident Dylan Baldi, Late in 2009, he started recording a bunch of catchy indie rock songs on his comuter in the basement of his parent’s house. Dylan wasn’t so concerned with them being lo-fi. But since he only had his simple computer and a crappy microphone that’s the way they turned out. Since their first show in December opening for Real Estate and Woods, the band has played SXSW, toured with Wavves, and played shows with Titus Andronicus, Parts and Labor, Best coast, and Kurt Vile. Their live shows have become super tight, displaying an intensity and precision rarely seen in bands of any age.
