Tall Juan celebrates new EP of peppy garage rock at Brooklyn Bazaar 12.17

In life, there are some things that we can almost always be certain of. The sun will rise, the commute will take longer than expected, and the weekend will not be long enough. Tall Juan is likely one of those things. His pace is quick, his songs are simple, and he rarely strays from his core influences. His latest EP, Joya Nedo, continues his peppy punk homage to The Ramones with four lo-fi tracks fated to make heads bob. The EP is out now digitally and Brooklyn Bazaar will host Tall Juan’s release show on December 17th. We are premiering here single "Out of Town." – Cameron Carr





Anna Altman brings slowcore jams to Alphaville on Dec. 22nd

Counterintuitively, Anna Altman is a band of young musicians from Brooklyn with a female lead singer, not a one woman project. Their music brings back (or finally exposes?) adult angst with a bedroom-y, DIY palette of sounds. The indie/alt rock group's dry percussive section (Christian Billard) and wonky guitars are brightened by chilled-out, conversational vocals by Lucia Arias. Two highlights from their album FREIGHTLINER are "Never" and "White Horse" which showcase the band's sweet lo-fi aesthetic. Streaming below, opening track and single "The Interview." You can catch Anna Altman live at Alphaville on Dec. 22nd. - Geena Kloeppel

New Soft Idiot LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Rain Wins Another Year!, the new album from Soft Idiot, recently arrived, and is available on cassette courtesy of Cheap Plastic Records. Saturated in emotive melodies, the record unites a series of diary-styled narratives. Invited into one's personal space, these songs exude an effervescent warmth, while exposing an endearing interior. That pleasure and pain principle strewn across a lo-fi, folk platform is a domain that you’ll explore and escape within.





Riley McShane's "Places" EP is indie folk at its finest

The newest release by San Jose native folk artist Riley McShane is the type of project that sneaks up on you, in the best way possible. Aptly titled Places, it is a drifter's rumination on what it means to be rooted somewhere—in ways both mental and physical. Recorded in various bedrooms, classrooms, and cars, this triumphant EP is a reminder of what makes the D.I.Y. scene so great. Reminiscent of other indie folk greats like Gregory Alan Isakov, Riley McShane is one to watch very closely (especially since he never seems to stay in one place for very long.) Check out his EP, and catch him playing SoFar Sounds on Saturday (an event almost as nomadic as the artist himself.) - Lilly Milman

New Telyscopes LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sandwiching the zoomed-in lyricism of bedroom folk with the strange, space-dwelling setting of psych, The Hobbyist, the new album from Telyscopes (led by Jack Hubbell), aligns one on a pleasant trajectory. Light layers of instrumentation are compounded by the tranquilizing presence of falsetto. While the album is characterized as "A 'tuna casserole' with some new songs and old leftovers strewn together in no particular order,” the collection retains a sense of unity. Along with Jawncarlo, Georgey V, and Earthboy, Telyscopes will be performing on Saturday, January 27 at a Castle Productions billing.
