New Music Video: "Doing Things Right" - Satellite Hearts

Satellite Hearts just released a new music video for their single “Doing Things Right,” which was co-produced by Joe Bisirri (The Lawsuits)-co-produced. The footage captures the trio performing the melodic head-bobbing rocker live. Utilizing trippy camera work, spins, varying angles and dimensions, not to mention that blond wig, the song has a way of creeping into your head, and shaking stuff up.


Las Rosas showcase their vintage flair at Rough Trade on April 23

While we were checking out the listings at Rough Trade (see previous post) we stumbled upon Brooklyn's revival pop trio Las Rosas. Their song will cast the listener to a vintage musical world where the cheeky melodies of the British pop bands of the '60s (think Kinks) meet with the "beachy" psychedelic pop that invaded the west coast of the US during that same decade. The nasal lead vocals have a cool tone that works perfectly in the mix, and is balanced by well crafted falsetto harmonies. The band released a five song EP entitled "Flower in the Sun" in the spring of 2014, and then a two song single the following November including Ms. America (streaming below). You can catch them at Rough Trade on 04.23 opening for once NYC (and now Nashville) based Clear Plastic Masks.

Oakland based R&B soul pop band, Antique Naked Soul will be performing tonight at New Parish in support of the Oakland based soul band, Fantastic Negrito.

You can check out why Fantastic Negrito was able to beat out over 7,000 other bands and musicians for NPR'S winning title TONIGHT.

Get there early to check out the San Francisco based soul music and "chakra rock" artist, Nikki Borodi. This may be one of your last chances to see Fantastic Negrito perform in an intimate venue because his career is rising to new heights! Don't miss this show!

Record Store Day 2015

Ok, so we haven’t been too keen about Record Store Day ever since the year that we got wind of its organizers trying to exclude certain stores from the celebration because their owners hadn’t “officially” signed up with them to participate, which is total bullshit to us. However, we do support bringing in business to our favorite local shops, grabbing some sweet, new vinyls, and checking out free live performances while doing so. If you’re looking to do that tomorrow, check out our list of spots where you might have the best possible time doing that.

Field Guides play the Rock Shop and Rough Trade within a week (04.23 + 05.01)

If - right now - you feel the need to be charmed, just click on the play button of the song streaming below and let things happen. You will hear the never endingly titled song "Peggy Asked A Question & The Answer Is 'Yes' & 'Let's Keep Dancing." Relegated for some reason at the bottom of the tracklist, this is one of our favorite songs from Brooklyn pastoral-dream-pop collective Field Guides' debut album, released this past November, and entitled "Boo Forever." We highlighted the band in this blog for the first time a few months ago and it looks like things are moving in the right direction for them, since they've been booked to play the (rather large) Rough Trade stage on May 1st, opening for NYC indie staples Miracle of Modern Science and Emanuel & the Fear. If you live in South Brooklyn, you can catch them at The Rock Shop on April 23.
