Noisy NYC bands on the rise: Pampers tour with The Men

The four dedicated rockers that make up Brooklyn’s latest, noisiest buzz band, the rising artpunk band Pampers, have slipped into their diapers and been hard at work. Their self-titled debut LP is due out on October 29th via In The Red Records and the band has released 3 new tracks for stream, premiered by Brooklyn Vegan, in support of the upcoming release which was produced by Ben Greenburg of The Men. The aggressive and whirling guitar riffs combined with the rustic, fuzzy vocals take you back to the early days of punk, but their postmodern influences keep them current. The guys are set to open for The Men on their upcoming tour which kicks off in Rochester on 10/13. Listen to "Purple Brain" below via the band’s Bandcamp page! – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)


From The Deli NYC's online music submissions: Kassini

A listen to Kassini is like stepping into another world, where trap doors exist around every corner, and you never can be quite sure where one false move might take you. A hazy bridge existing somewhere between ethereal soundtrack and epic power pop, this is a record that demands it be played front to back. As conceptual a journey as anything you're likely to take in sound and space this year, check it out below and see the band when they announce more shows later this year. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

This band submitted their music for coverage here.

NYC Artists on the rise: Christine Hoberg tours Europe

From the (virtual) a cappella gem 'All That Hate' to the demanding vocal chant in 'I, I, I, I...,' Christine Hoberg has never been one to back down from a vocal challenge. But her new track brings us to another place entirely.

'You Can't See Me' is an irrepressible electro pop song. In an unlikely collaboration with Milwaukee alt-dance troupe Kiings x, the results are unlike any place she's taken us to so far. With stomping beats and a downtempo attitude, the collaboration reveals even crazier heights for Hoberg, and a grounded sense of pop for Kiings X.

The Brooklyn artist promises a new album later this year ('World WIthin'), and we are excited to see how a lot of the material she's been playing live will translate to the new record. Check out 'You Can't See Me' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
