Young Ejecta celebrates release of new LP "The Planet" at Baby's All Right tonight (02/20)

Young Ejecta (formerly known as Ejecta), whose lead singer Leanne Macomber was featured on the cover of the latest issue of The Deli together with three other NYC ladies fronting electronic projects, will be celebrating the release of her new album "The Planet" tonight (02.20) at Baby's All Right - be there!


Electronica one man act from Brooklyn Mirror Kisses plays Paslisades on 02.26th

Mirror Kisses is the electronic project of Brooklyn's George Clanton, a young man blessed with a rare talent: finding great band names (ok, he's also a talented musician). We like that name because all art, at the end of the day, is a form of narcissism, in particular when the artist - like in Mirror Kisses - is alone, in full control - because when band members are involved, the narcissism is tamed by the need for compromise, which is a force that pulls you in the opposite direction). Clanton offers a kind of shimmery electronica that relies on a heavy use of synth pads and dancey drum loops, with the vocals almost always relegated behind the rich arrangements. Streaming single"Never Late Again" gathered an impressive amount of plays in less than a month. You can see mr Narcissus live at Palisades on 02.26th.


Unpretentious rock from NYC! Dots Confuse Minds play Pianos on 03.14

Let's admit it, NYC is a scene that rarely produces bands immune from pretentiousness, which has its good and bad sides. That's why stumbling upon Dots Confuse Minds' straight up pop rock songs seems like a breath of fresh air for our... ears? The quintet musical references range from classic rock of the 60s to The Pink Floyd from The Wall era, but in their best moments (like in streaming track "Doin' Life Right" they remind us of Seattle's Young Fresh Fellows, unsung heroes of the college pop rock of the early 80s. Dots Confuse Minds just released EP "A Gentlemen's Game" and will be playing at Pianos on March 14.
