Tall Juan tours with Juan Wauters + plays Shea Stadium on 03.08

Blending garage and rockabilly, Tall Juan plays music that's unpretentious and fun. The Brooklyn via Buenos Aires musician also enjoys relevant connections: after recording (streaming) single "Falling Down" with Mac DeMarco, he left for a few east coast gigs with friend and Captured Tracks' artist Juan Wauters, who also happens to play drums for him (to reciprocate, Tall plays bass in his band). You can see Tall Juan live at Shea Stadium on March 8.


Stream: BREAKFAST, "Boris"

Who is Boris, exactly? According to downtempo synth pop four piece BREAKFAST, he's the leecher who abuses of his high posotion without any real inslight into the concept of artistry. A mentor with experience, sure, but one who's misguided and thinks about the big picture without considering a true artist's essence. It comes on the heels of their previous single "Diane", a smiliar chracter study that follows the band's knack for dubby, texture-rich modular synthesizers. I wonder what character they'll think of next.


New Track: "Go For It" - CRUISR

“Go For It,” the latest single from CRUISR, is the type track that can really break the ice. With a loose infectious energy and a tightly compacted sandy groove, the song is a great way to shake off that chill and transition over to warmer weather. “Go ahead, now go for it.”


The Kickoff Party to the First Annual Philly Video Music Festival at PhilaMOCA Feb. 26

Tonight is the kickoff party to the first annual Philly Video Music Festival, which will be running at PhilaMOCA from February 26 through March 1. This evening’s program will consist of all local submissions with a few select ones, whom were invited. I am honored to be part of the selection committee that also consists of PhilaMOCA/Philly Video Music Fest co-curator Eric Bresler, The Key/WXPN’s John Vettese, WXPN DJ Robert Drake, and City Paper’s Emily Guendelsberger. You’ll also find fun events the rest of the week like Name That Video!, a throwback game show for the music video obsessed, a burlesque tribute to Weird Al and They Might Be Giants by Miss Rose’s Sexploitation Follies, retro video dance party, and much more. (You can the full festival schedule HERE.) It’s going to be a rad time, and get there early tonight because there is a good chance that it will sell out! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 7pm, $10, All Ages - Q.D. Tran


A Deli NYC premiere: "Prisms" by Youth Signals

Despite being a Brooklyn band, Youth Signals' latest single, 'Prisms,' carries characteristics of the other coast - or maybe even of the music some UK bands were playing in the late 80s (Psychedelic Furs, Echo and the Bunnymen). The song evokes a landscape (and society) far from hospitable ("we live in a land where everyone steals…. crumbling buildings/ no one has a home"), but for all its bleak content, 'Prisms' retains a hopeful disposition. Its sun-stroked, washed-out guitar keeps the song afloat, and this, coupled with the darkly lush vocals and languid pace of the drums, imparts a serene sense of calm. Towards the middle, the song slows, bending to entropy, but it soon breaks through, returning to its original elated existence. - @emilioherce
