Smalltalk
Lovelorn, conversation-like lyrics, guitars jangling over pounding rhythms, an idiosyncratic vocal style, and a healthy nod to any number of old-school indie-pop and post-punk acts; Smalltalk is for fans of The Wedding Present, The Smiths, Orange Juice, Psychedelic Furs, The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cure, Chameleons, and Echo and The Bunnymen. Featuring The Pete of The Bouncing Souls.
The Vansaders
The Vansaders
With songs rooted in the classic style of country pioneers such as Johnny Cash and George Jones, then ignited by a rhythm section raised on bands like The Clash and Bad Religion, The Vansaders deliver high spirited tales of life in New York City. They are currently playing shows in support of the their debut EP "SilverBacks" out July 14th.
Old Monk
Old Monk
The two founding members of Old Monk were separated by thousands of miles when they began writing their first EP. It took years of swapping answering machine recordings and exchanging lo-fi demos over the internet to complete. The successful collaboration finally convinced drummer Ian Burns to leave his native Colorado, joining guitarist Joshua Carrafa in Brooklyn. The two honed down their project into a set of concise pop songs with the raw energy of garage rock and the musical proficiency of classic prog. Deciding they must showcase their new music around Brooklyn and Manhattan, the two enlisted bassist Tsugumi Takashi and dubbed their project Old Monk. Old Monk has recently recorded its debut album, Birds of Belize.
