Synth-Soul from Brooklyn: WASHA

WASHA is the name of Dwight Pendleton's project, a one man, DIY synthpop act that interestingly blends (a very white version of) soul vocals with noisy backing tracks flirting with industrial and goth. WASHA is currently working on new music, but we really dig this song, entitled 'Night / Day' from his 2015 EP 'The Bright, Part II.'

EZTV unveils new video for 'Reason to Run,' tours & plays Bowery on 12.07

Here's something our many readers into dreamy music enjoy: EZTV's new video for single 'Reason to Run.' The camera follows a cowboy lonesomely exploring New York City - is he a Trump voter? That's not what the video is about (of course he is!), rather, it's about looking at the city with new eyes. After touring for most of the fall (in Europe too!) the band is currently taking a deserved two week break before embarking on the final leg of their tour, which will culminate in a performance at the Bowery Ballroom on 12.07.

The Meltaways bring riot-grrrl punk to IDIO Gallery 12/17

The Meltaways play riot-grrrl punk the way it was meant to be played--like a knuckle punch connecting with your temple. With spirited, blitzy vocals, schreeching guitars, pointed lyricism and the warmth and scratchiness of a lo-fi recording, the band's self titled release is a blistering 7 track record of earnest bravado. Check out the Meltaways at IDIO Gallery 12/17 with Turnip King, Deadbeat Club and Human People and stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

NYC Artists on the rise: Cut Worms open for Foxygen at Rough Trade on 12.01

Cut Worms is the stage name of a Brooklyn based singer songwriter whose identity isn't discolsed online - luckily for us, his songs are. The young gentleman presents himself solo on stage, sometimes performing accompanied by only his guitar, others playing along pre-recorded tracks. He offers a brand of charming folk-pop revival that truly sounds as if originated in the early sixties - his recording even feature the vocal distortion typical of that era. Since April 2015 he's been incessantly releasing digital singles as part of the 'Soft Boiled Demos,' which now add up to over ten tracks all wrapped up in this vintage aura and his songwriting style that flirts with the timeless classics of folk. Masters of revival Foxygen must have noticed, since Cut Worms will be opening for them at Rough Trade on December 1st. Check out single 'Mad About You' below.

NYC singer songwriter Billy Lewis Jr. is lead actor in rock opera 'The Portal'

Making a living out of music or art is a tall order, in particular in a pricey place like NYC, but having a multi-faceted talent, like actors do, can certainly come in handy. The Portal - a Rock Odyssey, is an artful mishmash of theatrical performance, concert, and movie, an immersive, live band backed rock opera about the search for love and inner desire for transformation. Many local musicians are involved in this production, including lead actor Billy Lewis Jr. (Fox’s “Glee,” The Who’s Tommy, Spring Awakening, Hedwig & the Angry Inch), who is also a singer songwriter. Here's a sneak peak (or sneak listen, if you will) into The Portal's soundtrack: "Space Child", a track influenced by droney Eastern music and originally composed by Guatemalean group Kan'Nal, features entrancing vocals by the lead actor and an atmosphere that builds in intensity over time. Experience The Portal Wednesday through Saturday at The Minetta Lane Theatre. - Ashley Muniz
