Day to day life and love in New York as standalone themes are trite but not when they are expressed in the form of Indie Rock, down-to-earth lyrics, and versatile tempos. In Dru Cutler’s latest single “Familiar” these come together in one beautifully composed piano ballad.

Familiar” now has an accompanying music video and will be debuting this Saturday, July 25, 2015 at The Living Room (134 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn NY) at 11:00PM. Continue reading

Brooklyn Music Show Picks // Libel / Slim Wray / Phone Home + More

The middle of February can be a pretty slow time, but you wouldn’t know it going by the concert calendar. Plenty of interesting shows are happening all week long. Here are a few you should check out.

Tonight (2/18) – Libel takes the stage at Knitting Factory (361 Metropolitan Ave). This band draws on melodic-yet-jagged 90s post-hardcore and should be cool live. Also on the bill is Grand Resort, who seem to have perfected a mixture of shoegaze, jangle, and new wave that takes you back to the 80s effortlessly. Of course, both bands are still very now, too. Check them out with Kins. Doors at 8:00, show at 8:30, $10 entry. Tickets here.
