The latest in the flurry of experimental Brooklyn bands, Telepathe, have attracted some serious attention since the release of their debut LP Dance Mother last week. Although produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek — enough of an accolade to draw thousands alone — the band are by no means riding on the crest […]

Cheer Accident

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Tuesday 23 September 2008

Chicago’s Cheer Accident started as a post-no-wave weirdo band typical of the Skin Graft roster, but of late, they’ve been doing some unrestrained pop and rock. They even have harmonized vocals and an occasional horn. This isn’t to say they’re commercializing – their songs are just as complex as ever, and there’s still a hint […]

Byrne and Eno collaborate. Again!

Derrick Stembridge Reader Find

By Derrick Stembridge in New Trends on Tuesday 19 August 2008

Brian Eno and David Byrne recently finished their first collaboration in about 30 years. For the most part, Eno did the music and Byrne wrote some tunes, words and sang. It’s familiar, but completely new as well. The new record is called Everything that Happens will Happen Today and it will be available on August […]

The Dust Dive

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Wednesday 16 July 2008

Caught The Dust Dive the other night at Glasslands. They’re a bunch of hippies, but even I have to admit, they’re atmospheric live show – consisting of violin, gently strummed guitar, a few piano and sampler twinkles here and there, and sound samples from the found footage projected behind the band – is really powerful, […]

Extra Life

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Music on Monday 30 June 2008

The glut of pretentious art rock bands in New York has been getting me down and making me hate going to shows. That is, until I got to catch Extra Life a couple weeks ago. These guys obviously listen to everything Tzadik puts out, but as challenging and off-kilter as their angular squall can get, […]

No Age’s Nouns

Francis Andrews Reader Find

By Francis Andrews in New Music on Saturday 31 May 2008

No Age are doing something different to the mass of noise-laden, guitar-drum duos canvasing the lo-fi airwaves at the moment. I’m just not sure quite what. Their album, Nouns, is receiving top-rate reviews after sell-out crowds after screaming, obsessive fans. The music is simply massive: a vast landscape of heat haze, somehow both tranquil and […]

By Gerry Mak in New Art on Saturday 15 March 2008

Stephen Tompkins makes some impressive Lichtenstein-esque paintings that look like Dali comic books. He is also a prolific experimental musician who makes dark, ambient sound collages and minimalist, beat-driven compositions.

The E.L.F’s Stevie Nicks Hearts

Monique Rothstein Reader Find

By Monique Rothstein in New Music on Tuesday 12 February 2008

The E.L.F is the outrageous new side project of the flannel-clad Gerling frontman, Darren Cross. A genre agnostic, Cross throws a tantrum on Stevie Nicks Hearts, the first EP created el solo in the dark underbelly of his Sydney home studio. The indie-infused aesthetic smashes itself against the wall, whilst 80’s synth-beats get thrown across […]
