Consisting of members of The Obits, Holy Fuck, Nation of Ulysses, and The Cops, SAVAK is a new super-group of sorts that sports an intriguing sound. By blending garage rock rhythms with saxophone flourishes and a presentation rife with hardcore punk energy, SAVAK put forward an indie rock variation that is as noisy as it is ...

Sloppy Jane could perhaps better be described as a performance art collective than a band. Naked bodies, colored dye, and television screens set a backdrop for melting inhibitions as the music (and often the musicians) tumbles into chaotic fits. It’s a must-see for fans of avant-garde, performative punk. Deservingly, the band, led by Haley Dahl, will bring ...

Brooklyn darlings Kino Kimino‘s debut LP "Bait is for Sissies," featuring Sonic Youth Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley serving as session men, will throw you off-guard, just like the band’s bizarre, at time nonsensical videos. The brainchild of Kim Talon, the power trio offers deadpan vocals, gritty guitars, and 90’s-cool-kid vibes embedded in an ever-shifting sonic ...

Listening to The Royal They can feel like teetering on the brink of chaos. The trio seems captivatingly in control of impromptu bursts of sound, explosions of cymbals and fuzzy guitar. At some moments you wonder if the band is about to lose control, but they never do. The dynamic intensity has visible roots in ‘90s ...

Making a sticky impression with their debut single and video “Heaven” (streaming below), elements of classic 90’s and early aughts female fronted rock can be gleaned through both the audio and visual performance. ...

Beginning with pummeling tom drums, Russian Baths‘ first single from the upcoming “Penance” EP could easily be a soundtrack to fleeing the titular Slenderman character. While the airy vocals emote almost plainly, the instrumentals jostle with each other to occasionally cacophonous peaks. At its calmest, “Slenderman” is a foreboding, gothic track but the noisy, feedback-laden guitars ...

Bethlehem Steel is loud. The band’s music commands the room with intensity and force.

It’s an album that successfully emphasizes the band’s tumultuous live power and serves as ...

Guitars get big and the lyrics tell stories of bad decisions, broken friendships, and feeling like a hot mess. Singer Rachel Lightner carries most of the band’s tracks as if she’s gleefully marinating in ...

Tribal, gloomy and tense, the sound of NYC’s Ritual Humor finds some solace in Celeste Carballo’s warm vocals. The simple melodies and stern rhythm section take us back to the early day of post-punk, including the simple bass synth parts and overall droney tendencies – a sound many children of the late ’70s/early ’80s carry in their DNA. ...

Prawn has never had the sudden rise to widespread success that has graced other bands in the supposed emo revival.

Bootblacks offer a gothic melancholia bounced back and forth on synth-pop beats, a menacing vision of gloom that’s infectious.

The band promises a seedier vision of NYC, one of decadence and decay. They shared their preference about synths with ...
