New York’s one of those cities with a music history so profound, a life’s study of the subject would barely touch the edges. So uber props to all those artists out there, trying to make it. Some more modern creators I’ve been enjoying are Onehotrix Point Never, TV on the Radio, Animal Collective and the Dirty Projectors.
But to bring things a little closer to home, a few friends have put out albums/eps (somewhat) recently and I wanted to share them with the community following TWJ. Feel free to leave any feedback for the artists, and let me know if you’d like more contact info for bookings etc. 🙂
Melodious poptasticness from Stranger Islands (the lead singer is also a teacher at the private language school where I instruct ESL)
And a funny hipster critique of the one song that’s playing in every store, in every cab, on every speaker in the bloody city (and I also can’t help but like it!) …
