CMJ Show: Killer Mike At The Studio At Webster Hall, Thursday, October 18th, 2012, Reviewed
But that isn’t where Killer Mike is at ALL THE TIME. On RAP Music, he is too hard, on stage he is something else jumping off the stage and spending the last two songs dancing and rhymin’ with us, his arms around a fan, going round and round and round.
Sister Crayon At the Studio At Webster Hall, May 21st, 2012
Screeching like a banshee with her black hair flaying and three keyboards and a a sound loop around her, one guy on keyboards and guitar, another chick on keyboards, a drummer and Terra Lopez herself fiddling with nobs before moving her hands mid-air like a refuge from a Lew Grossman novel where the sun never sets though it damn well should.
Maps & Altlases At the Studio At Webster Hall, May 21st, 2012
The new songs are played straight up, with Dave’s mumbling vocals and spaced quietude , fronting a band who can’t do much but work on the songs but tell us to clap. There is a reason why Phish are such stick in the muds on stage, the music is hard to play. M&A have precisely the same problem.
The Big Sleep At the Studio At Webster Hall, May 21st, 2012
I just read a review of the band in New York Press, who compared them to a ride on Space Mountain -yep, the eleven years and counting band, lead you to those kinda comparisons. Lead by Danny Barria, who works the sound with the heel of his shoes, and sings in a manner that belies the distancing
Angels and Airwaves At Studio At Webster Hall
Alot of their work is programmed so it can be easy to dismiss as pre recorded. A light show and tons of smoke machines with laser makes small clubs feel like stadium and Delonge is able to fill a stage with his presence
Bleeding Rainbow At The Studio At Webster Hall, Thursday, January 26th, 2012
the band did get the momentum they wanted, and given the genre they are exercising in, they quite often transformed it with songs that keep on peaking out from the rumbling of strum and feedback.
Jump Into The Gospel, The Studio At Webster Hall, Thursday, January 26th, 2012, reviewed
the synth takes over. This mix is why they aren’t really 80s retro, they are more a mix of glam and modern indie, and the singer sounds like David Bowe one minute, David Johanssen the next.
Cloud Nothings, The Studio Webster Hall, Thursday, January 26th, 2012, Reviewed
by the end you gotta think the band had nothing left to add to the proceedings. I dunno if Cloud Nothings will break pop but they sure will be big on the college circuit, where they love their angst with a lot of loud guitar and drums.
Big Chocolate At the Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 25th, 2011, Reviewed
Big Chocolate held the audience in the palm of his hand playing a variation on on Simon Says and playing with sonic heavy bass lines and drum sequences. The aural pounding is infectious and fun.
Alex York At the Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 25th, 2011, Reviewed
Bottle blonde Alex York is a cool friendly charmer on stage at the Studio at Webster Hall.He struts the stage with a mix of arrogance and diffidence and sings his catchy pure pop for now people with conviction, helped along by a pretty good guitarist.
Breathe Carolina At The Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 25th, 2011, Reviewed
For 45 minutes, Breathe Carolina were a study in artistic professionalism. The pacing immaculate, the audience rapport a study in contol, they were so good that at the end they interrupted a two hit medley with a slow one.
The Coathangers At The Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 11th, 2011, Reviewed
The band of four, Julia Kugel (guitar/vocals), Stephanie Luke (drums/vocals), Candice Jones (keyboard/vocals), and Meredith Franco (bass/vocals) came across as nearly leaderless
Clinical Trials At The Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 11th, 2011, Reviewed
the rock star in waiting moves about the stage banging riff upon riff till she is doubled up over the guitar and at the end she leaves the last chord ringing, with an obviously honest “I like feedback”.
Girl In A Coma At The Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 11th, 2011, Reviewed
on stage the San Antonio trio seem stuck in a place and can’t wriggle out of it. They are a good, self-assured live band who are in the process of catching up to their recorded sound.
Sunday Masquerade At The Studio At Webster Hall, Friday, November 11th, 2011, Reviewed
