Christmas music that doesn't suck: Maya Solovey

Like all true rockers, we tend to react pretty badly to Christmas music - we were particularly devastated by Bob Dylan's obscene Christmas album released a few years ago. But there are always exceptions, and the song streaming below, by Brooklyn chanteuse Maya Solovey, is one of them. "In the Bleak Midwinter" is a late 19th century poem by the English poet Christina Rossetti, which was then made into a Christmas carol in the early 20th century. What we like about Maya's version is that it takes it back to what it was originally: a poem about Christmas, rather than a carol - we actually wonder if the author ever meant for it to become a carol! The song is the opening track of the songwriter's latest release, entitled "Midwinter: On Christmas Eve," which features many of the classic Christmas tunes in a super stripped down, sleigh bell-free version. This bare bone treatment highlights Maya's beautifully expressive soprano, and allows for a new appreciation of melodies and lirycs almost all of us know by heart.

Free Download: "Body" - Moon Bounce

Electro-soul/R&B artist Moon Bounce, a.k.a. Corey Regensburg, just shared a new single called "Body," which is part of Ryan Hemsworth's Secret Songs series and is available for free download. Regensburg proclaims, "I wrote this song to celebrate my lady’s body and worship carnal desire. It’s my raunchiest song to date, but also the purest." We think someone is being done right. Hopefully this song will get you the same results.

Preview: The Lower 48 at Doug Fir 12.19

It wouldn’t be wise to end the year without a solid night of rock and soul. This Friday, the Doug Fir hosts a pre-Christmas eggnogger with some of the hottest bands on the circuit. The night starts with Moon By Youand their psychedelic surf-soul then gravitates to some bluesy Motown soul with local nine piece Brownish Black. Continuing the festivus will be The Lower 48. Their sweet mix of folk and vintage pop combined with slightly grungy rhythms and soft vocal harmonies has come together to create the Lower 48’s own brand of soul. They are returning from a rainy California tour and are putting on a party to celebrate another rainy, Portland Christmas. Tickets are $10 and the show starts at 9PM.

A bill of NYC indie pillars at Glasslands on 12.23: Backwords, Shilpa Ray, Dragons of Zynth and Economy Punk (ex Xray Eyeballs)

It would be interesting to know how many people move in and out of NYC every year - hundreds of thousands we guess? This is a city that fuels all sorts of dreams only to crush them the minute you stop believing. In its scene, where new bands are born and not so old ones die on an hourly basis, the artists that manage to stick around for longer than a few years become the true pillar of the musical community. The same can be said for a venue that consistently promotes quality local acts like Glasslands. As you know, the Williamsburg spot will be closing its doors at the end of 2014, and, looking at its last few weeks of calendar, we couldn't help but notice the Tuesday 12.23 bill, which features four quality local artists that we covered abundantly for years and that have earned the title of "NYC scene pillars." We are referring to psych folk collective Backwords (in the picture, playing Glasslands a few years ago), maudit rock songwriter Shilpa Ray, Economy Punk (ex Xray Eyeballs') and Dragons of Zynth, an indie soul act that has been around at least since we started this blog (that was 2005) and that occasionally comes back when you least expect it. Definitely a good opportunity to say goodbye to this legendary but short lived venue, and meet some familiar faces.


MUSK Releases New Music Video - Drag House

Oakland based noise punk band, MUSK has released a new music video for their cover of The Chrome Cranks song, Drag House. The music video is as visually loud and jarring as the song, cutting from one clip of uber masculine archetypes to another, ie: explosions, monsters and fast cars. No complaints here. Check out the video below!
