To get the inside word, Greenpointers recently caught up with the femme fatale art-pop band HUFF THIS!… Continue reading

I asked singer/guitarist Indigo Street some questions about the band, their song “Echoes,” what she thinks of our awesome neighborhood, and more.
Special is the new video by Brooklyn based musical group Doom Trumpet. After a video release at Happy Fun Hideaway in Bushwick, Greenpointers hosted a Q and A with the band and the video’s director Lauren Silberman about the mesmerizing song and film.
GP: What is Doom Trumpet exactly? Would you call it a band? A project?
Lauren: I’ll leave this one to David.
David: Doom Trumpet revolves around writing and playing music together. Equally important are the scenarios and connections we create with and for our sounds.

Brooklyn Band Field Mouse recently wrapped up a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the recording of their debut album. We caught up with singer/guitarist Rachel Browne about crowdsourcing, the band’s evolution, and the Brooklyn scene.

We have some pretty impressive, talented (and OK, yeah, real attractive) musicians roaming our side of the BQE. Are you one of them? And if you are, likely you have good taste to boot.
We wanna wrangle a different Greenpoint-based musician each week to curate a five-song Spotify playlist. The theme can be totally invented, however, each—if possible—should also contain a track of your own.
Simple, huh? Can’t wait to hear what y’all piece together.
