Brooklyn singer Jonathan Hoard takes you deeper on 'Tidal Wave (feat. Rabbi Darkside),' performs at Brooklyn Bowl tomorrow (8.28)

Brooklyn vocal marvel Jonathan Hoard conjures power from the depth of soul seldom explored on his new song, "Tidal Wave feat. Rabbi Darkside" (streaming below). With a powerful yet smooth voice somewhere between Stevie Wonder and Beyonce, the singer/songwriter/arranger has the acumen to match the energy of any track he tackles. As his harmonies swirl and pulse, it’s easy to get lost in the wave's giant blue heart. Known to many from his accompaniment with the New York jam session known as The Lesson (led by the band Gentei Kaijo), Hoard smashes with his solo work. “Tidal Wave” also includes a ferocious verse from hip-hop ambassador Rabbi Darkside. Brace yourself. Jonathan Hoard performs tomorrow (8.28) at The Brooklyn Bowl as part of The Lesson. - BrokeMC


Brooklyn singer/songwriter Janet LaBelle performs at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (8.30)

Back in May 2013, Brooklyn singer/songwriter Janet LaBelle released “Wide Awake Dreaming” (streaming below), a wistful piano track that Brian Wilson would approve of. Capturing a forlorn lover’s sleepless night with imaginative lyrics such as “The world’s an empty cup,” the song shows the merry LaBelle of “Just a Little Rain” or “You Don't Get It (So Forget It)” as a melancholic nightingale here to coddle us back to rest. Reportedly at work on a new release, Janet LaBelle performs at Mercury Lounge on Sunday (8.30). – Zach Weg


New Track: "Lonesome Tonight" (New Order Cover) - The Morelings

The duo of The Morelings has released a cover of New Order’s “Lonesome Tonight,” which originally appeared on the album Thieves Like Us. While similar in sound, this version utilizes a combination of keys and delicate vocals, conjuring an ethereal sense of calm. The track is featured on VA - Dreams Never End, A Tribute To New Order, a compilation that is available via TBTCI Records. On Thursday, September 24, The Morelings are scheduled to perform on a bill with Dreambook and Living Hour at Johnny Brenda’s. (Photo by Lizzy Schwartz)


NYC indie group Caverns playing at Knitting Factory on 9.10

Caverns is a NYC-based indie-rock band whose latest EP, 'Tonche,' seamlessly blends elements of psych-rock, prog-rock, and a bit of pop into a replay-worthy debut. The influence of classic acts on the group is undeniable. The EP's third track, "Count to Five" (streaming below), opens with a psychedelically dark guitar riff that would feel right at home on a Pink Floyd record, and yet there's enough of their own fingerprints on the music that it has a unique sound. The rest of the EP follows a similar pattern, succesfully blending a modern indie-rock nature with psych-and-prog-rock qualities. Caverns has made quite an impact with its debut record. The opening track, "Ghosts," already has over 30,000 plays on Souncloud, just 3 months after the EP's release. The band is currently working on new material and you can catch them live at Knitting Factory on September 10. - Patrick Wolff
