New Nyxy Nyx LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Magic Coffin Ride, the new album from Nyxy Nyx, arrived recently via Blight Records. Enjoy the comfort of a mesmerizing haze. Acoustic guitar leads one down a dreary/solemn path. The inviting, tranquil nature of the vocals contrasts with the volatility of the recording's frayed, fuzzed-out edges. It's an enchantingly eerie, adventurous adrift.





HARMS' haunting, human worldview rings true on "Aquarium"

“Hell is beautiful and everyone wants to go there.”

This haunting sentence lingers, like many, on Brooklyn-based multi-instrumentalist Jake Harms’ “Aquarium,” the title track from his recently released six track EP out on Good Eye Records. Harms, who performs mononymously on Aquarium but comprises one-forth of Brooklyn lofi outfit What Moon Things, channels a baritone vocal performance immediately evocative of late '70s post-punk, with its mellifluous, dark quality occasionally breaking into a scream against a cataclysm of dreamgaze guitars and analogue synth. The whole of Aquarium is driven in large part by the size and power of Harms’ lyricism and vocal delivery, a heartbreakingly raw performance that explores depression, self-doubt, and regret. It’s visceral, overpowering, and at times deeply uncomfortable, but HARMS composes some of the most honest, unapologetic songwriting to come out of New York this year, meriting praise from its bold presentation of the uncomfortability of human existence. Stream HARMS' Aquarium below. -Connor Beckett McInerney (@b_ck_tt)

Buzz Alert: L'Freaq unveils video for "Moonlight" from "Weird Awakenings" EP

We've been saying for years that female indie musicians have, on average, been producing a lot more interesting material than their dude counterparts, and L'Freaq, the project of bi-coastal electronic singer songwriter Lea Cappelli, is another piece in the truly beautiful puzzle representing NYC women's musical output in the new millennium. After releasing the delicate yet edgy electro-soul ballad "Weird Awakenings," the artists has recently unveiled a darker (and even edgier) single/video combo with  "Moonlight" - streaming below. Channeling the experimental, noir ballads of Portishead, the track features a deceivingly sparse arrangement, blending a killer plodding and syncopated rhythm section with ever-evolving, ambient electronic soundscape. Lea's vocals not only confirm her noteworthy pipes and silky tone, but also reveal her ability to convey character to a performance and "play" the song's part, a trait only few musical performer possess. Don't miss her next live performance at Rockwood on February 2nd.





New Track: "Ask The Angels" - Potion 200

Potion 200, which is comprised of Bill Fries (Drone Ranger), Jeremy Colonna (Clasp), and Zack Robbins (Superheaven, DARK MTNS, Flight Habit, Sun Organ), recently shared a trio of tracks from their forthcoming LP Oblivion Parade. A smattering of percusion pops like firecrackers in the distance, hushed secretive vocals, and ascending keys build a mysterious intrigue on “Ask The Angels.” The song branches forward in a breezy pleasant jangle. Bill Fries's soft vocals lift as if floating on a daydream cloud. One steps into a fantasy world if only for a fleeting moment.

TOLEDO brings blissed-out rock to Trans-Pecos on 12.16

Brooklyn indie rockers TOLEDO make things look and sound easy. Anchored by Daniel Alvarez and Jordan Dunn-Pilz, TOLEDO has put out a mix of laid-back singles that showcase a folksy, blissed-out sensibility. With soft, watery harmonies and bright hooks that are easy to sink into, their sound recalls early days of Real Estate or even Fleet Foxes.  As of now, TOLEDO is getting ready to put out their debut EP in February of 2019. You can catch them IRL at Trans-Pecos on December 16th, where they’ll be playing alongside Saint Marilyn and Elliot & The Ghost. Listen to their single “Hot Stuff” below. Sara Nuta
