I am hard pressed to do anything but deeply admire an 8 song set where I loved everything. 8 songs and I was almost in pain I was so disappointed when it was over. I worry about over selling Modern Hut but I place Joe on a continuum of great young songwriters
For a run of ten years through the heart of his youth from the ages of 15 to 25 (1995 – 2005), the kid was the poet laurate of indie and held in awe by just about everybody including me… and then…
The 90 minute set might have been special to him, it was Carnegie Hall and the acoustics were tremendous, the sound the best I’ve ever heard and his rasping voice a thing of beauty, but he didn’t act that way at all. .
I am not a Leo fan but I am guessing it is just one of those things, you can’t like every good singer songwriter, sometimes their cap annoys you or the name -six letters in two words, oh please, rubs you wrong. Or something about their melodies never hits your sweet spot.
It sounded great, but except for the light show, it was all a little boring. Like listening to classical music, opera is fun, classical, all people do is stand around and play and essentially that’s all the Brooklyn based experimental indie rock band does.
there is no real frontwoman as Carrie shared the stage with Mary Timony, battling her legs apart with roaring guitars, affronting her, in the middle of the stage several times during the show, in front of Janet Weiss’ tireless and powerful drumming
an elegant solution to question of money and design. It was a beautiful thing, with close circuit screens on the walls and at the edge of the stage, gorgeous light shows, and by some wizardry sleight of hand, more depth than the Black Keys got out of MSG.
“There are many things I can do with money. I can support causes I believe in, I can go to the Doctor for a physical… I CAN LIVE the life I deserve. I am not a money head, I have never chased the almighty dollar. I hate money, but money is the final arbitrator of taste, much more than you…”
Now nothing more than a low rung Indie band far below caliber of those in the genre that followed behind them. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them grandfathers of the scene, but they had their short lived space and basically ruined it for themselves. Its hard to be a down to Earth Indie band when your front man is an egocentrical..egocentric. Yeah that bad.
at least the title track and a few other tunes sounded quite familiar
fascinating and way too intriguing to leave
that woman has some pipes!
blown away by the experience.
filled up the stage with fun, feel-good dance-party tunes which, I would not be surprised, could well be the next radio hits.
a busy lady
For completists everywhere
a beautiful mess of a chaotic noise
everything looked grand and stylish, the beards and the suits of course
I did venture to the west to see a band from the east side,…
catchy and joyous melodies big on male-female vocal harmonies
A new song from the Shins? I’m always craving for one! James Mercer and his new fresh group of musicians decided to play one at Domino Room in Bend, Oregon on August 9th. After covering David Bowie's ‘Ashes to Ashes’ at their comeback show earlier this week, they did this little gem, ‘a slow song’,…
‘Everyone is gone/Home to oblivion’
Totally free, 20 Songs
hazy ambient music than pop, but it could be a lot of things.
a hypnotic kind of thing
Internet killed the video star???
captivating in every aspect
they were getting the crowd riled up
getting better and better
the two women seem made for each other
Ambigious, also illegal,
no clean poppy noise
not singing but shouting
tix on sale Friday at noon
a mysterious duo from New York
Are they offensive?
Are there any humans in this band or is it a dude who whispers and his Mac
I started with the intent of bashing these guys as Indie flip flop beard wearers.
Powerful, moving, unhappy but ultimately cathartic songs
to the point, society-deriding discontent.
Their’s is a music that defies description
AIF replaced Punk New York with No New York, Richard Hell with James Black, Exene with Yoko Ono: it is a giant leap forward but inscrutable, obstreperous, different.
but if you just can’t wait the band is playing Maxwells, Saturday May 28th
much better than anything I have heard from M.I.A.,… especially without the hype
I am pretty amazed by this folkie indie chick
I absolutely love The Get Up Kids, and they ain’t kids
The store was filled with … women of course, but there were a few exceptions.
There is a new EP in the work, which will come out this summer, and featuring a track with Fucked Up and Best Coast.
gather up your flip flops and clove cigarrettes, horn rims and messenger bags have a seat here on the floor…
