BEST OF 2014 LADY FRONTED POP ACTS: Raquel’s Picks

1. Jenny Lewis - "Head Underwater" One of the best tracks off of one of the year’s best albums, “Head Underwater” is a doozy of a pop song. Lewis sings conspicuously dismal lyrics (“My own mortality, I contemplated”) over a bubbly, dynamic beat (that she also produced herself), creating interesting tension within a sublime melody. [...]

LIVE REVIEW: Yo La Tengo @ Town Hall

New York City's resplendent Town Hall is quite a place to have a birthday party. Amid the glistening chandeliers and velvety red carpet, an unassuming crowd filed in, featuring a mix of young kids with neon hair, older folks with silver hair, and everyone in between. Yo La Tengo's longstanding, universal appeal manifested. For the Hoboken trio's thirtieth [...]

TRACK OF THE WEEK: A Place to Bury Strangers “Straight”

Last week, Brooklyn’s own A Place to Bury Strangers announced their fourth studio album, Transfixiation, due out Feb. 17th via Dead Oceans. The first single off the upcoming record is the hard-hitting, noise-laden gem "Straight" — so good we chose it for our track of the week! "Straight" is the first single from APTBS since [...]

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Beverly’s “You Can’t Get It Right”

Frankie Rose's penchant for lo-fi garage pop is pretty obvious by now—not only did she play key roles, over the years, as a member of the Vivian Girls, Dum Dum Girls, and Crystal Stilts, but she also developed her own sound as a solo artist. Now she's teamed up with Drew Citron (from her touring band) for [...]

TRACK OF THE WEEK: Son Lux and Lorde

Last year, producer/composer Ryan Lott, aka Son Lux, released his amazing full-length album Lanterns to immediate praise. How’s now returning with Alternate Worlds, an EP of four of Lanterns’ songs reimagined and reinvented. The tracks are all worth a listen, but Son Lux’s collaboration with Lorde on a remake of his song “Easy” is our [...]

TRACK REVIEW: Prinze George “This Time”

Brooklyn's own Prinze George are an indie-pop group that specialize in thumping synths and sweetly catchy melodies. We've featured them before for their last single, "Victor," and now they've come out with a new song, "This Time." "This Time" features a driving, upbeat rhythm that begs to be played on the dance floor. Naomi Almquist's [...]

ALBUM REVIEW: The Vickers “Ghosts”

Ghosts opens with a bassline that worms its way into your brain, immediately hypnotic and catchy. The track, "She's Lost," unfurls with reverberating electric guitars that, at some points, craft a smooth wall of echoes and at other points, shred with gnarly intention. It's a pretty accurate indicator of what the whole ten-track album holds: a [...]

TRACK REVIEW: Throwing Snow’s “Summus”

London based electronic producer Ross Tones, aka Throwing Snow, recently released his four track EP "Pathfinder," and its closing track, "Summus," is now available to stream online. The track has industrial sound, with a pulsating bass that acts as the song's heartbeat. Though it starts off quite minimally, it builds and evolves into a densely [...]
