Hot off of the release of Burst Apart, their second ‘concept’ album but fourth, full length LP, The Antlers will be taking the stage live and at home tonight at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York.
Andy D. is not your average musician. For starters, his influences range from ‘80s greats Grandmaster Flash, Beastie Boys, Michael Jackson, Prince and Poison. He burst onto the Indianapolis scene a little more than a year ago, after moving down to Bloomington via Brooklyn. His live shows immediately became talked about. Combining rap, rock, and
Last night, Delicate Steve and Akron/Family took to the stage of a sold-out Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, NY. The room was an eclectic mix of hipsters, music aficionados and indie-rock fans (sometimes as the same person). Delicate Steve, or the 23-year-old virtuoso also known as Steve Marion, recently burst onto the scene with the impressive
Last night I ventured fifteen minutes from the L train to see The Press play at The Glasslands Gallery. I was not disappointed.

But fortunately for Queens, New York-based Freelance Whales, the results couldn’t have gone more swimmingly. The band’s name is derived from lead singer Judah Dadone’s near death experience when he nearly drowned during his childhood
Brooklyn-based experimental rock outfit Bear In Heaven is proof that hard work and perseverance pays off. Formed by Jon Philpot in 2003 and despite having released two earlier records, the band finally has broken through in 2010. This year, they’ve re-released Beast Rest Forth Mouth, with a bonus remix album featuring The Field, Studio, High
From the few bars of a radio request to a recommendation from your ultra-hip friend, we are constantly barraged with new music – but how can we find time to sift through all of it to find what’s good? In this post, BestNewBands.com will save you time and energy by highlighting some talented artists whom
Beach Fossils‘ debut self-titled album sounds like a lazy, slow-motion day in the California sun. Despite the fact that I can think of several other recent indie releases that fit that description, this Brooklyn trio has something special going on.
