Zr. King: What would happen if Tom Waits wrote a rock opera and hired Keith Moon to play drums, John Paul Jones to play bass, Lemmy to play guitar, and Chris Cornell to sing? It would sound like a boss. And probably like a Zombie Robot King.
Colin L Orchestra: Described as his new 9 piece orchestra for 4 guitars, 2 drummers, 1 bass, and 2 keyboards, Colin L Orechstra delivers music that is not loud. Rather, it is swirling breaths of psychedelic improvisation around mellow minimalism. Falsetto vocals sung in unison by a choir. 9 nice dudes playing nice & easy. Sounds like if Shuggie Otis joined the Dead and only played Dark Star.

  • Ryan Martin

    Ryan Martin

    Ryan Martin is many different things to different people. To some, he is a thoughtful and gentle (though slightly wild in all the right ways) young man from Los Gatos, California. To others he is a relatively recent denizen of New York City, who knew absolutely no one upon his arrival. Since then, he has been known to others as a former pipe salesman, a doorman at a tourist bar on Bleecker Street, a mover of furniture for college students, a bar-back at a debauched Chelsea bar, a campaigner for impoverished children, and a cash register operator at Trader Joe's. But above all, everyone who has ever known Ryan Martin (or those who will come to know him in the future), knows him as a musician of the highest order. He has been writing, singing and playing his timeless, yet somehow, also timely songs, since his high school days in California. Ryan has just finished recording his debut album; this, after all, is the reason he journeyed all by his lonesome to NYC in the first place. He has survived, sleeping on stranger's couches, and in his car when he had to (before having to sell it, so he could keep on keeping on). The fact that the album is completed, proves the old adage, that everything that is truly good and worth paying attention to, eventually rises to the top. And now you can come see Ryan Martin and his Half Texas Big Band and be left with an experience you wont forget.

  • Hawk and Dove

    Hawk and Dove

    Hawk and Dove is a post-Americana rock band with a calm-before-the-storm approach, a contemporary yet classic sound that's like the psychedelic country David Bowie never wrote. “Hawk and Dove channel a 60’s pop band and a modern alternative outfit,” The Deli says. Supajam adds, “it's almost like an alt act doing the seventies.”
    Singer Elijah Miller and guitarist John Kleber met at summer camp whenthey were 13 years old. 12 years later, they met again in New York, where they discovered they shared a vision for the music they played. Together with AJ Sausville (drums), Joan Chew (violin and bass), Max Hodes (tenor guitar and vocals), and Caitlin Becker (keys and vocals), they have created an album deeply rooted in rock, country, and psychedelia.
    This Yesterday Will Never End (2014) juxtaposes haunting ballads with thunderous stoner grooves, crafting a unique rock experience. This Yesterday is “…an album that transcends the boundaries created by different genres of music," The Aquarian says. "Hawk and Dove transition… effortlessly, and take the listener on a journey guided by Miller’s tender singing.”
    Hawk and Dove's songs never do what you expect them to. They ramp up with enormous energy to what would normally break into some bombastic chug-a-long, then scale back with restraint to relish small moments of sonic delight. Guitar, violin, and banjo drone like slow-moving glaciers. Ballads bounce with off-kilter rhythms. Keyboards tumble down the scale just when it seems they'll ascend. This disarming inventiveness is what makes Hawk and Dove's sound so beguiling. With their steadily growing following—and a killer live show—Hawk and Dove is proving to be the loudest quiet band you have ever heard.

  • The Thigh-Highs

    The Thigh-Highs

    The Thigh-Highs met in 2008, at a party in the home of legendary rock journalist John Swenson. It was there that they realized they had a similar taste in hairdos and in rock 'n' roll records from the 1960's. And so ... drummer Jimmy Picker, guitarist Gerry Newland and bassist Phil Gordon cobbled together a list of their favorite Power Pop songs and began playing house parties in Brooklyn. By 2009, they'd written enough original songs to venture out of the living rooms and into the Rock Clubs of NYC as well as the recording studio to make their first single record; Alice on the Moon/She's a Belle. In the Spring of 2010, classically-trained Cathy Cain joined the group, adding piano, organ and harmony vocals to the mix. When Jimmy retired from the band that summer, Dave Keating, a house party alumnus and veteran rock drummer took his place behind the kit, rounding out the current line-up. In 2011, the Thigh-Highs are scheduled to record an LP, are collaborating with Pop groups in England and Australia on a joint record and tour, and will continue to perform here and abroad. Swimming against the tide of the current Brooklyn sound, The Thigh Highs are unrepentantly pop!
