Brooklyn Raga Massive’s Version of Terry Riley’s In C: The Most Psychedelic Album of 2017

Source: New York Music Daily

Considering how much Indian music has influenced Terry Riley’s work, It makes sense that the iconic composer and pioneer of what’s come to be known as indie classical would give the thumbs-up to Brooklyn Raga Massive’s recording of his famous suite. The irrepressible New York collective can’t resist mashing up just about anything with classical Indian sounds: their previous album tackled a bunch of famous John Coltrane tunes. They’re playing the album release show for the new one – streaming at Bandcamp – on Oct 6 at 8 PM at the Poisson Rouge; $20 adv tix are recommended.

Haunting, Uneasy Psychedelia from Matt Kanelos

Source: New York Music Daily

Matt Kanelos is one of New York’s most sought-after pianists. He’s half of Carol Lipnik‘s haunting Ghosts in the Ocean project, plays with psychedelic Americana chanteuse Jenifer Jackson and Canadian gothic bandleader Lorraine Leckie as well as in sardonic jazz guitarist Jon Lundbom‘s band. Kanelos’ original songs are as smart and distinctive as the artists he shares the stage with. His new album Love Hello is a masterpiece of pensive, allusively lyrical psychedelia. To paraphrase one of his bandmates (guess which one!), it’s part hypnotic Wilco Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, part metrically tricky, artsy Radiohead and part Terry Riley ...

These New Puritans Hold the Crowd Rapt at Bowery Ballroom

Source: New York Music Daily

If you think that slow, pensive minimalist post-artrock can’t possibly be exciting, you’ve never seen These New Puritans in concert. Last night at Bowery Ballroom they filled the space despite the deluge outside and entertained a hushed, adoring crowd with an unexpectedly kinetic, meticulously orchestrated show. The set followed an artfully conceived, steady trajectory from stately unease to something just short of titanic, epic grandeur: what makes this band so consistently interesting and compelling is how they never go over the top, or, for that matter, never waste any notes. This seven-piece edition of the band followed frontman Jack Barnett’s ...
