Out In The Streets Festival comes to Ridgewood, Queens on 7/16 and 7/17

Whoever said Queens isn’t cool (hey! it's the new Brooklyn!) surely must not have heard of the Out In The Streets Festival coming to the Onderdonk House in Ridgewood for its fourth year on July 16-17.  Filled with some of our favorite local artists, such as The So So Glos and Frankie Rose, the festival is primarily a rock'n'roll fest. Bands will be playing with a backdrop of art, food and the Ridgewood market.  We’ve prepared a playlist to give a taste of the artists playing this weekend, but be sure to head over to the Out In The Streets festival to hear them for yourself. - Madeleine Grossman


Beverly releases 'The Blue Swell,' plays Rough Trade on 07.01 + talks about gear

Brooklyn dream pop band Beverly, who placed third in our Best of NYC Emerging Bands Poll back in 2014 (after Porches and Mitski, what a year!), just released her sophomore full length entitled 'The Blue Swell," and we can tell you without any hesitation that the record marks a noteworthy improvement both in the songwriting and production departments. Singer/guitarist Drew Citron and her band mates played four gigs in the UK this past May and will be leaving for a two week East Coast tour that will end with a home show at Rough Trade on July 1st. Our sister blog Delicious Audio run a few questions past Drew about the band's sound and the making of "The Blue Swell" - saee link below.

Beverly, interview about musical gear and the creative process.

Beverly announces “The Blue Swell” LP + unveils two videos + plays Baby's All Right on 05.05

Brooklyn dreampop rockers Beverly are preparing to drop their second album “The Blue Swell” on May 6 through Kanine records. To celebrate that release they have scheduled a few live appearences: a full fledged live show at Baby’s All Right on May 5 with EZTV, Painted Zeroes and Tall Juan, and a free, in the store show at Rough Trade Records at 2 pm on May 7th. In our 2014 interview with the band singer and songwriter Drew Citron confirmed how “harmonies are the most important thing to me,” and how they can “set one moment of the song apart from the other.” That process is clearly on display on recent single “Victoria”  The simplicity of the songs intro seems to exist for this very “set apart” reason. But it’s the gorgeous chorus that pulls it all together. “Why do you need them to adore you?” With a sound like this, it’s hard not to. Newly release song and video for “South Collins” takes those incredible harmonies and bathes them in a haze that marries Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” with The Jesus and Mary Chain’s “Some Candy Talking.” The noir film video that accompanies adds a darker edge to its sonic haze. - Dave Cromwell
