It’s not surprising that Brooklyn-based Atlas Engine, the solo project of Nick LaFalce, experienced a whirlwind of success following the release of his debut EP After the End. Without question, this EP is upbeat, melody-driven indie pop, but it is also saturated with lush, dream-pop elements. The intimacy of this record is sure to be ...

With the release of their EP Diamond Jubilee, Bent Denim has carved out a dreamy space for themselves in the world of indie pop.

It’s difficult not to get lost in the lush, lucid indie-rock of Minor Poet. Set to release his debut solo album, And How!, next month, the Richmond-native songwriter sets lyrics inspired by his personal narratives and pairs them with stoic and steady instrumentals.

Inspired by their first time at SXSW, Brooklyn-based quintet Future Generations wrote the melodic, guitar-driven single “One More Problem” (streaming below). The use of a catchy hook and a dynamic, fast-paced chorus with a semi-electronic production could be compared to indie pop stars like Walk the Moon. This single is notable for the band because it is ...

"You can’t say indie rock is dead, it’s just being taken over by women," Sophie Allison (of Soccer Mommy) once said. And with an up-and-coming band like Evelyn, it seems pretty hard to dispute. The Brooklyn indie rock band’s recent project may have proven that they possess the caliber to become one of the prominent, emerging ...

Their new video features band members navigating their way through the soft, ethereal-sounding track while ...

Even with only one four-track EP under their belt (released in January 2017), NYC’s Dodgeball already showcase an intriguing ’90s revival sound influenced in equal parts by slack rock and post rock. A twisted, cranky guitar, an evocative nerd-boy singing, and a killer name that’s a 10 on the nostalgia scale. Like the mellower cousin of Ovlov or ...

An Allusively Intense, Psychedelic New Album by Larkin Grimm

Source: New York Music Daily

Multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Larkin Grimm gets pigeonholed as freak-folk, probably because her music is mostly acoustic But that’s a box she doesn’t fit into. She can wail to match Yoko at her most assaultive if she wants, but she’s just as likely to soar gently over an artsy, psychedelic backdrop. Her latest album Chasing an Illusion is streaming at Bandcamp. She’s playing Sunnyvale at 8 PM tomorrow night, June 8; cover is $15. Renata Zeiguer’s trippy, creepy Prozac rock project Cantina opens the night at 7. Grimm is also at Planeta, 295 E 8th St. on June 16, time and cover ...
