Three great NYC artists play Union Pool on 05.02: Wilsen, Alpenglow and Hite

We feel like recommending this bill of NYC based artists playing Union Pool pm May 02. Wilsen is a band led by amazing songwriter Tamsin Wilson, they were featured on the cover of our magazine a few years ago. Alpenglow, hailing from New England but now full Brooklynites, play similarly ghostly folk rock, and they do it well. Hite, on the other hand, is a new face in the local scene, and a compelling one: the solo act's debut LP "Light of a Strange Day" is one of the most interesting releases we've heard this year, a sparse record filled with inspiring sonic ideas, edgy soul songwriting and a voice that's impressively controlled and expressive. Do not miss!

Evening Darling brings Folk Rock with a Country vein to Mercury, 05.18

NYC-based folk rockers Evening Darling are bringing something a little different to the city: a country vein. You can hear it in their tasteful harmonies on "Live Where You Lay," reminiscent of Lady Antebellum, and the straightforward boom-chuck country/americana drum sound. There is a darkness to the slicing guitar solos and groovy keys, however, dare to make it more of a rock tune. The band has just released their self-titled debut album and will be playing The Mercury Lounge on May 18th in support of LA indie poppers Valley Queen. - Geena Kloeppel

New Music Video: "Echoes" - Koof & Vessna

Trumpet-wielding Koof Ibi (West Philadelphia Orchestra, The Extraordinaires) has combined forces with songstress Vessna Scheff. While the tandem goes by the abbreviated Koof & Vessna, their sound is far from it, as seen in their video for “Echoes”.  Combining colors on a musically blank slate, Scheff’s clear-strolling mandolin and pensively powerful vocals are further extracted by the increasing suspense and sonic shape, as a percussive, rhythmic intensity aided by strings and horn blasts develops keen auditory imagery. The duo is set to perform at Bourbon & Branch on Saturday, May 6 with Caroline Reese and Lizzie No.


Singer/Songwriter Shealeigh has recently released her debut EP, We All Need To Go Place. The now 19 year old Auburn Chicago teen found success early appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show at 12 and being named “Next Big Thing” by Radio Disney at just 13. While only 13 the sound this, her debut, EP is much more developed and mature.
