Kodacrome Covered Girls, Play Cameo’s Last Month, Win Tix

One of our favorite local electronica projects is Kodacrome. The duo, known for their moody soundscapes and analog approach, have been mum much of this year, but are re-emerging with 2015’s conclusion on the horizon. The group’s just released a dusky reimagining of Girls’ “Vomit”, which we’re revealing publicly just below. If you’re digging this, do give last year’s album, […]

Bob Moses @ Bowery Ballroom, 9/30/15

If one could calculate cool, electronica duo Bob Moses would be topping those lists currently. They are well regarded for their winding and stripped down amalgamations of house, dance and ambience, not unlike the now-concluded Darkside. Riding a massive wave of momentum from the recent release of their debut album, Days Gone By, the duo of Tom Howie […]

Caribou Was Along the East River Promenade For Summerstage

Caribou is well established among electronica devotees, respected for his long-tenure of danceable, oft-gloomy music. He came roaring back into focus with last year’s Our Love [Merge.] and played a couple of sold out shows at Webster Hall in November supporting the album. Summerstage, celebrating its 30th anniversary with a wider than ever spread of shows, […]

The festival was founded in 1986 and it spans several music genres, from American music, to modern dance, and family programming. It’s located on the outdoor venue at Rumsey Playfield and it runs during the months of June, July, […]

See Bob Moses Talk the “Talk” This Summer

One of the acts I’ve been listening to most fervently the past year is an NYC based duo by the name of Bob Moses. The pair, Tom Howie & Jimmy Vallance, output soulful, at times even haunting, cuts of chilled out dance music. Its sound is not at all unlike the sort of ambience Darkside was cultivating the past […]
