Lily and Horn Horse opens for Half Waif at Baby's on 04.27

Lily and Horn Horse is a NYC based avant-pop duo featuring a singer (Lily Konigsberg) and percussionist / brass player (Horn Horse, aka Matt Norman). Except, the brass instruments are so filtered and effected that they often sounds more like synths, if not... horses. Real synths and drum machines are also programmed in their tracks adding texture and occasional bleeps and squeaks. In 2017 alone, they released two purposefully unglued-sounding records featuring more than 20 tracks each. Their songs sound like brilliant semi-developed sketches, built on quirky, sparse electronic foundations and airy vocals following strange melodic paths. SF kings of quick Deerhoof took notice and asked them to open for their fall tour last year. They are now back in NYC and will perform at Baby's All Right on April 27th, opening for Half Waif's Record Release party - do not miss either.





Debut Exmaid LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Exmaid, which unites Miranda Taylor (Hunchback, Full Of Fancy, Black Wine, Noun) with the power trio of Psychic Teens, recently dropped their debut LP, Fair Sex, via SRA/Don Giovanni Records. Taylor leads the way, navigating through narration with a deadpan sincerity. Meanwhile, the passageway is muddied with a menacing, primal grunginess, which looms like an ominous cloud or lingering shadow figure. There’s a brooding, ripping backdrop clearing a course for the clairvoyant vocals. A window of accessibility is opened, and brutal honesty is the result. You can catch Exmaid's record release show this Saturday, April 21 at Long In The Tooth, where they'll be supported by Dialer.





O Mer's new EP "Refugee" blends synth-pop with soulful and eastern influences

On his new EP entitled Refugee, Brooklyn by way of Tel Aviv artist O Mer deconstructs genres in a way that allows him to bend electronica with both soulful and eastern influences. The EP features the breakout single “Now I’m Alive,” as well as tracks that have only previously been performed live, like “The Veil” (streaming below), a song that can most accurately be described as meditative. The EP channels themes of displacement and disorientation that arise from living in a foreign country.





New Coping Skills LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Worst New Music, the new LP from Coping Skills, is now available digitally and on cassette via Citywide Records. The duo embraces a keen self-evaluating perspective. Their ability to address the mundane nature of routine, while exploring the quandaries of daily life transform what can be viewed as bummer songs into euphoric anthems. Coping Skills are scheduled to be musical guests as part of the Darlings show on Friday, April 20 at Good Good Comedy Theatre. (Photo by Josh Stewart)





New Track: "Going To My Brother’s House" - Maxwell Stern

Perusing unfamiliar territory, “Going To My Brother’s House,” the latest single from Maxwell Stern (of Signals Midwest), glides in a roundabout, acoustic-folk stroll. Along the song’s evolution, it traveled the globe from Philly to Pittsburgh, to Australia, to Chicago, where it was augmented by Mother Evergreen to become what we hear now. There’s an unassuming nature as the tune guides you down a path. Picking up additional instrumental pieces along the way fully fleshes out its details, as the catchy, lyrical string tongue-ties. There’s a familiarity in realizing when you're out of your comfort zone and the aspects that you notice in those circumstances. You can find Stern opening things up at Kung Fu Necktie on Friday, April 27, as part of a billing that also includes Shannen Moser, Port Arthur, and Friends of the Bog.
