Bryson Cone: "Destination Nightmare"

Bryson Cone dropped his song “Destination Nightmare,” and it’s every bit as dreamy and jazzy as it sounds. This song takes you waltzing on the moon while a full band, complete with holographic keytars, plays in the background. The distortion of Cone’s voice is romantic and dreamy, but also has some more serious notes. He keeps the track, and thus the audience, focused. This in turn allows for a fuller appreciation of the song’s artistry. It is an intricately layered song, which makes sense given Cone’s background in mixed media and sound collage. Cone’s talent is made perfectly clear with “Destination Nightmare.” We can’t wait to see where he heads next.

Mizan K, Queen Esther, and The Hornē Electric Band play The Revolution Vol. 35, 01.26

“The Revolution”, a showcase of emerging local artists hosted by The National Sawdust, will be celebrating it’s 35th rotation with three engaging new voices in the New York music scene. Queen Esther conjures the melancholy of black Americana with her take on country; The Hornē Electric band approaches their compelling brand of funk with a combination of technical savvy, creativity and a sense of humor; headliner Mizan K balances complexly fractured beats with soothing soul vocals, creating music with which she seeks to let people “know they are not alone”. Three very different creators to be sure, but each reflects the diversity of backgrounds and specialties housed by the artistic hub that is New York City. “The Revolution: Vol. 35” will take place on January 26 at 10:00 pm - you can listen to a playlist of the featured artists below, and buy tickets here. - Sunny Betz

Post Punk duo DROOL released their latest album, DROOL II, today via Born Yesterday. The easy comparison for their sound is a modern and slightly more warped Joy Division, but their sound is fuller and more aggressive at times. This is am amped up and violent take on Joy Division with a splash of King Missile and early Sonic Youth.

Below is the video for the album’s first single “Civics II Honors”.
