NYC electro soul duo BAEB RXXTH announces debut album OMW

BAEB RXXTH’s first single “Gutter” blew up their Soundcloud page with over 15K hits. Now, with the release of “STRP,” the duo, consisting of vocalist Nasimiyu and co-producer Devon C. Johnson, once again aim their Trap pedigree directly at your hips. Nasimiyu, who won critical acclaim in 2014 from Vogue, Nylon, Afropunk, and SPIN for her solo project “Dirt,” pairs silky vocals with playfully clever lyrics while Devon C Johnson conjures 808-laced production that thumps with a diamond veneer just south of saccharinity. Hot on the spiked heels of NY Fashion Week, “STRP” demands the industry to “Take it off: your apathy, your suit of armor... I wanna see what’s beneath your fashion sense.” Their album OMW is out 11/13.


NYC slackers Real Life Buildings play Baby's All Right on Oct. 2

The debut album from Real life Building's, a project founded by Baby Mollusk's Matt van Asselt, is a collection of folk-tinged indie-rock songs, with ever-so-slight hints of punk, that was recorded over the course of "four days on a porch and in a barn in Maine." The music on "It Snowed" certainly seems to reflect the simplicity and pleasantness of its recording location. Van Asselt's voice on songs such as "Your Toothbrush" and the opening track, "In The Sky Today," emanates an air of serentiy over the laid-back instrumentals, and manages to do so even when the energy of the rest of the band rises on songs like "Thaw" (streaming below). The lyrics themselves sound like an experiment in stream-of-conciousness songwriting, meandering through a series of seemingly mundane developments that are presented in such a delicate and wistful manner that they become intriguing and even compelling. The record is currently available on Bandcamp and as a cassette through Mt. Home Arts, which Van Asselt helps run. You can check out Real Life Buildings on October 2nd when they'll be performing at Baby's All Right. - Patrick Wolff


The Tye Trybe bring rock and roll (and afros) back to New York City

Do you yearn for the days when rock n' roll ruled the airwaves? When riffs were as big as the hair on the heads that wrote them? If so, then New York's The Tye Trybe might be just what you're looking for. Born out of the South Bronx and Spanish Harlem, this self-described rock and soul trio brings a raw power that harkens back to the blues-steeped music of artists like Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix. The group's debut EP, "Word is Born," was released just over a year ago, and, while it runs a bit on the short side as far as EPs are concerned (its 4 tracks go just over the 10 minute mark), it packs a big punch. The opening track, "Shine Them Shoes" (streaming below), kicks off the record with an intense and distorted blues riff that leads into the head-banging attack of the drums and Joseph Hernandez's gritty vocals. The energy of the group never relents over the course of the next three songs, and their rock and roll spirit is both infectious and fun to listen to. The Tye Trybe currently has no scheduled shows, but they're definitely a band to keep your ear on. - Patrick Wolff


NYC's Mainland shares new single 'Not As Cool As Me' + plays Music Hall on 9.29

New York rock band Mainland's latest single "Not As Cool As Me" (streaming below) off forthcoming debut album 'Night Trials' is an unabashed screw-you to a former lover. Excitingly mixing the nerd rock of Weezer and the rebel punk of The Clash, the guitar-fuzzed track refreshingly bats away the remorse or melancholy that attends many songs about broken romances in order to burn a sure, hot anger. Frontman Jordan Topf's rattling voice itself makes the song distinguishable, perhaps elevating it from a break-up track to a war cry about intimacy. Mainland plays the Music Hall of Williamsburg on 9.29. - Zach Weg - photo by Rachel Cabitt
