Pavo Pavo unveils stunning video for "Ran Ran Run," debut album out on 11.11

There's only one thing that can make a great song even better, and that's a visually stunning video, and that's what the collective called SWIMMERS pulled off for NYC's orchestral pop quartet Pavo Pavo's single "Ran Ran Run," a single we alrady raved about when it came out more than one year ago. The video comes with some news we were waiting for: Pavo Pavo is about to release their debut album on November 11 under Bella Union Records - it will be entitled 'Young Narrator In The Breakers.' This is a group of young but extremely competent musicians who worked closely with indie and classical heavyweights such as Here We Go Magic, John Zorn, Dave Longstreth, Porches, Olga Bell, Lucius, Roomful of Teeth, and San Fermin. The record was co-produced by Danny Molad (Lucius) and Sam Cohen (Yellowbirds, Apollo Sunshine), so expectations should be high. Check out also the other single available for streaming, 'Wiserway,' also streaming Below. The band will be performing at Manhattan Inn on 10.19.





The Lemon Twigs unveil new video, go to #1 in our emerging artists charts

It's somewhat ironic that one of the hottest and most provocatively stylish NYC bands of this decade is hailing from that strip of land New Yorkers often (always?) look down on: Long Island. The D'Addario Brothers, aka The Lemon Twigs, look and sound like something your average Brooklyn hipster might frown upon, but their predecessors from fifty years ago would have certainly disagreed with that stance. At a time when the majority of local rockers find inspiration in the noisy and boring looking '90s (by the way, was there a NYC grunge band in the '90s?), the duo, similarly to what Foxygen did five or so years ago, responds with a visually and sonically striking revival of the art pop of the '70s, with glamorous references to David Bowie's androginous look - which, by the way, was born after the frequentation of the promiscuous lifestyle surrounding Andy Wharol's NYC factory. But, of course, none of this would matter if their songs weren't powerful and memorable, which they are. Check out the video for single 'As Long As We're Together' (which took them to the Top 10 of our NYC charts for emerging artists on this same page) and the one for previous single 'These Words.'





New Music Video: "Bring Yo Friends" - Tunji Ige

Josh “Glassface” Goldenberg merges an interesting series of imagery in the video for “Bring Yo Friends,” found on Tunji Ige’s mixtape Missed Calls. An old-school premiere countdown opens the proceedings. Then, a mixture of black & white, low-key Brooklyn bridge performance visuals, interspersed with flashes of widespread settings and morphing animation, give the production a chill but hyperactive touch.

Buzz Alert! Adiós Ghost plays Pianos residency on October 12,19 and 26

Pianos is one of the few NYC venues left that still dares to host emerging artist residencies (they actually do that in two rooms). We always pay attention to these bands, because the fact they were invited means they have a good live show and an expanding fan base, which are important factors for any band. Adiós Ghost is an adventurous Brooklyn band that plays an intricate brand of avant-pop that will excite the aural canals of those of you into Yeasayer and Animal Collective. Their recent EP 'Endless Return' is their first release since 2014, and it's a very interesting record. Employing electric and electronic instruments, and also saxophones at times, the band's arrangements shine for their transparent quality, and very processed references to African melodies and rhythms. Each song seems to be built on musical blocks that support and complement each other, resulting in airy and flickery compositions. Check out opening single 'Tension' below and don't miss one of their upcoming Pianos shows on October 12,19 and 26.
