Pill’s fourth release to date, entitled ‘Aggressive Advertising,’ seconds the axiom according to which crazy sounding bands that manage to stick together only get better with time. The Brooklyn quartet’s earth shattering, saxophone-armed brand of noise/math rock finds a new musicality and maturity, both in devilishly aggressive tracks like "Empathizer (Rat in the Box)" (streaming), and ...

In this circumstance, what pushed the project of Kevin Olken ...

We’re finally at that point in our relationship with Wiki that he’s starting to let us in.  Where in Ratking, he and Hak bewitched us with visceral depictions of graffiti and skateboarding life from Harlem to Coney, now he’s solo and waxing philosophic.  In No Mountains in Manhattan, Wiki tells us how he really feels about everything from publicists to systemic racism.  He’s never preachy, and his flow is that perfect meld of NYC street style and afro-futurism.  The premier video “Mayor” shows him campaigning the streets dispersing “WIKI for Mayor” stickers while he asserts his indelible connection to his NYC fam.  Whether he wins against the incumbent or not, he certainly reigns supreme over the world he creates for us with his expert rhymes.

New York-based performer Baby Copperhead shares his namesake with a notably harmless  breed of snake; unlike the animal, he’s got some bite. WNYC called him “the banjo visionary,” but he’s also a singer, a songwriter, a guitarist, an experimentalist. His music is both expansive and intimate; his sound like nothing you’ve ever heard a banjo make but also like every melody your mother sang to lull you to sleep. – Rachel Kerr

Q&A with indie-folk songwriter Belle-Skinner

Source: Deli Magazine NY

A truly talented songwriter based in Brooklyn, Belle-Skinner is a self-described mix of "mid-century pop and fingerstyle contemporary folk." Her songs contain a multitude of influences while maintaining a style that’s all her own. On 2016 album, We Shut Our Eyes, her fluid falsetto is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom, while the songs’ structural deftness hearkens to the creep-and-crawl of Elliott Smith and the understated drama of Sufjan Stevens and Jeff Buckley. Belle Skinner landed this interview through the Music Building‘s "Expose Yourself" campaign. Check out the Q&A below!
