INTERVIEW: L’Rain, Spellling, and Boy Harsher to Embrace the Experimental at Basilica SoundScape 2018

Just a short ride on Amtrak from Penn Station, Hudson - with its quaint brick buildings, historic architecture, and riverside views - has become an enclave for New York City’s artistic expats.

AF 2017 IN REVIEW: Our Favorite Albums and Singles of the Year

It's a huge part of developing our [...]

BAND OF THE MONTH: Sound of Ceres

photo by Ben Tra There aren't many Brooklyn bands that can convince high-profile performance artists like Marina Abramović to brave Bushwick's divey DIY scene, but Sound of Ceres did just that last August, during their month-long residency at Alphaville.

When Andrea Lo talks about Belle Game, the concept of serendipity keeps coming up. It was serendipity that she met her bandmates Adam Nanji (guitar) and Alex Andrew (drums) when they were all in grade school.

Last year, Memphis punk quartet NOTS released their arresting sophomore LP Cosmetic, brimming with a palpable, immediate energy. Though they're rockers at heart (and Cosmetic is relentless in its sonic barrage, no doubt) it was the band's penchant for art-rock flourishes that set the record apart.
