Prince Rama Record Release @ Baby’s All Right, 3/4/2016

Prince Rama, two sisters with a sizable catalogue chronicling their exploration of “The Now Age”, debuted their latest release this past Friday, titled XTREME NOW. Joining their sold-out celebration were PC Worship and NYMPH. It’s their second stop on their supporting 2016 tour, which ends on, yes, 4/20, back in Brooklyn. NYMPH’s rhythmic drone enveloped the […]

TAMARYN w/ Samantha Urbani @ Le Poisson Rouge 8/28/15

Physically, Tamaryn casually climbs the Le Poisson Rouge’s stage while mentally she appears to be fully immersed in the introspective mindset that she wrote Cranekiss within. It is her most personal album to date. Formerly associated with a more atmospheric tone in her debut album The Waves (2010) and in Tender New Signs (2012), the New Zealand born artist […]

Little Boots @ Bowery Ballroom, 7/23/15

Little Boots is all about getting things done. The English electropop artist just dropped her third album, Working Girl, under Dim Mak last month, which she celebrated with a brief US tour hitting LA & the Northeast. I’ve been aware of her since 2008’s Hands but failed to catch her here until this evening. Needless to say, […]

The act is a duo of Brodie Jenkins (vox) and Johnny Hwin (guitar, vox), bolstered live by Mitchell Wilcox (drums) & Jonathan Hererra (bass/synth) to form a tight four […]

Tei Shi & Yumi Zouma, Oyinda @ Baby’s All Right, 11/15/14

As the landscape changes around Williamsburg, Brooklyn, I’m more and more grateful for Baby’s All Right as a proving grounds for emerging acts. The venue celebrated a one year milestone last month, shortly after we caught Mr Twin Sister there. Last weekend, my curiosities led me to return, this time for an electropop flavored billing, featuring a […]

On the Beet: Jenny Bapst

I stopped by Rockwood Music Hall recently to catch Jenny Bapst in performance. The French-American pop singer recently released an energetic new album, Allez. Her live rendition featured a full band backing up her vocals and dance. I took the opportunity to ask Jenny a few questions about her music and inspirations, which you can catch below along with […]
