The Twilight Sad at Elsewhere (November 1, 2018)

By Will Oliver, November 9th 2018

Scottish sadboys The Twilight Sad are gearing up for the release of their new album It Won/t Be Like This All the Time, which will be released next January 18 via Rock Action Records. It’s been five years since they released their last album, Nobody Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave, which led to almost non-stop touring, including a whole bunch of dates opening up for The Cure. You know, as you do.

It’s been a long five years and fans are eagerly anticipating the new album. The band has been on tour giving fans a preview of the new album, which included a return to New York City on November 1 for a performance at Elsewhere alone with openers by Yohuna.

Christine and the Queens released new album Chris on September 21 via Because Music. On Halloween, they returned to New York for the first of two sold out shows at Brooklyn Steel in support of the album.

Chris was backed by a team of talented dancers who engaged in some rather incredible choreographed dance routines that were specific to each song. Not only a dance routine but each song had its own story arc to go along with each song that made this a true performance in every sense of the word.

Minus The Bear @ Irving Plaza (October 28, 2018)

By Will Oliver, November 5th 2018

When Minus The Bear announced that they were breaking up after a round of final farewell shows, I instantly recalled my days as a clueless teenager who only knew whatever modern rock radio told me to listen to. I remember finding this world of indie rock and specifically finding a band named Minus The Bear and their song “Pachuca Sunrise” (sorry that is a boring pick there) and soon became fascinated by their unique sound and especially their hilarious and super long song titles.

Photos + Interview by Joe Saturday

The last time we saw Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Holly Miranda, she was celebrating the release of her third LP Mutual Horse (released via Dangerbird Records) at the Park Church Co-Op back in March.

Her next headlining show would have taken place in August at The Loft at City Winery, but illness forced that show to be rescheduled for October 25th. Before taking the stage that evening, I briefly had the opportunity to catch up with Holly to discuss topics like the making of her album, her Patreon, and even her plans for the future, among other subjects. Continue below for excerpts from that discussion, Holly’s setlist, and a photo gallery of Holly’s guest-filled performance that evening as well as photos of opening act Tim Mislock.

meshy meshy – “break your heart”

By Will Oliver, November 4th 2018

Last week saw the release of the new EP desire from Danish artist meshy meshy.

“break your heart” is the single off the EP and is a bedroom pop jam that sneaks up on you with its easy-going nature but still finds a way to remain ever-so-catchy. It’s a simple approach but at its core, the songwriting shines through and stands out above the rest.

Take a listen to “break your heart” below

Dorvin Borman – “Inheritance”

By Will Oliver, November 4th 2018

Back in September singer Dorvin Borman returned with new single “Inheritance,” a track that dives well into the world of some 80s influenced shoegaze and dreampop.

It captures some retro-fitted charm of acts like The Raveonettes, with tons of melodic gold hidden underneath that gloriously fuzzy surface. Read the rest of this entry »

Jesse Jo Stark – “Mystery”

By Will Oliver, November 4th 2018

Los Angeles singer Jesse Jo Stark, who we just caught opening for The Vaccines at Music Hall of Williamsburg, is back with new single “Mystery,” a follow-up to her debut EP Dandelion, released just this summer.

“Mystery” is a retro-fitted single that showcases her strong vocals that recall a bit of that rearview mirror focused vocals that Lana Del Rey broke out with. It has a pretty big chorus that takes it all home in a nice fashion.

Check out “Mystery” below and if you dig it, you can purchase a copy here.
