Kemba debuts vulnerable new single "Last Year Being Broke"

The Bronx has always had the worst reputation among the NYC boroughs, a concrete pariah whose name still concots emotions of fear, mostly outside of NYC. It is from this dismissal and its rough-and-tumble fame that artists like Kemba draw their inspiration. In his new single “Last Year Being Broke” (streaming) Kemba paints hyper-real portraits of his everyday life via punchy verses that carry the warmth of his sincerity. The whipping kick drum and trickling piano notes help bring Kemba’s proclamation of soon-to-be-achieved success amid all-too-real poverty forward. The track is relatable for up and coming artists and shows that the rapper is looking to connect with his audience as opposed to boasting at them. In today's hip-hop scene this is a welcome approach. Check out the single below. - Rene Cobar





Pleasure Island invites listeners to kick back and relax in new EP, plays Rubulad 05.31

Wouldn't it be nice if you could take The Growlers and amp up their surf side? How about a few added sprinkles of bossa nova for the dance enthusiasts? Pleasure Island makes this a reality in their new EP Playa del Manos. The band shows its ability to channel the surf vibe with languorous guitar chords and hi-hat ebb and flows that soothe the mind. The synth ambiance created in the EP’s final track “Sunlight” (streaming) could easily have been part of your local high school’s Enchantment Under the Sea Dance. The group will be showcasing their  loungecore indie pop at Brooklyn’s Rubulad on May 31st. Get a taste for it in their new EP, streaming below. - Rene Cobar

Bathe's "I'll Miss You" is perfect poolside listening, play Brooklyn Bazaar 5.30

It’s officially almost-summer, and Brooklyn-based duo Bathe have provided a lush soundtrack in their I’ll Miss You EP, a short and sweet alternative R&B effort that’s perfect poolside-listening. The entirety of the extended play is marked by a lurid nostalgia permeating each of the release’s seven tracks, conveyed through '80s inspired downtempo swinging on songs like “Kimmi,” and jazzy Strat noodling on title track “I’ll Miss You.” By channeling vintage inspiration into thoroughly modern rhythm and blues, Bathe also creates a record with a double meaning: there’s a longing for people and places past in the lyrics, but the music couldn’t feel more of-the-moment. Stream it as you sunbathe at Rockaway Beach during the coming warmer months, pining wistfully over last year’s summer fling, and catch Bathe at Brooklyn Bazaar on May 30th alongside Myles Cameron and Moise. -Connor Beckett McInerney, Photo by Danielle Caño-Garraway
