Three girls with the names of Rosie Glassman, Britney Bora and Marina Ross have formed a band called New Myths. On March 11th, they released a self titled EP with breezy vocals gathered on a psychedelic rock foundation. This trio force is haunted by the buttery woos and whispers from each member. Their harmonies compliment their pretty hair as they sway back and forth to the background dance tempo. New Myths’ EP contains three tracks, all in the three minutes range and “It Burns Through Your Armor” is a personal favorite. Today, the girls have decided to make this EP “name your price”(huzzah!). Three alluring songs from three alluring girls, what’s not to like? Visit New Myths bandcamp here.
Earlier this month, there was a post on Snowmine’s first headlining show and Conveyor was briefly mentioned as one of the opening bands. After experiencing their lively act at Glasslands Gallery, I am compelled to properly introduce these men to you guys. Conveyor is a four men representation of sensational rock music with an experimental and at times, orchestral edge. Last year, they released an EP titled Sun Ray and this year, they have a new single called “Mukraker”. This track is a warm breeze with a bright radiance of the xylophone. Watch the music video of “Mukraker” below and get cozy with their versatile kitchen/loft/recording space.
You know what is so great about these local New York bands? They play local New York shows. This Saturday, Conveyor will be performing with Bryan Scary (another client of the lovable Paper Garden Records) at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Get your tickets here! It’s an early show with doors opening at 7:30 so why not? Last time, a man in a rainbow jumpsuit came on stage during the set with a beautiful trumpet. Maybe this will happen again!
Happy New Year! If you missed a party on New Year’s Eve, we have something to make up for it. This Thursday, local acts are gathering at Glasslands Gallery for a Popgun celebration. The headlining band is Snowmine, one of my personal favorites from 2011. Snowmine consists of five handsome men with the talents of creating tribal nostalgia. Their music can be received as low waves of synthed indie rock mixed with splashes of orchestrated pop. Laminate Pet Animal (Snowmine’s album) is a collection of delightful body treatments.
A couple weeks ago, Brooklyn’s The Yes Way premiered a music video for “Falter” at Cameo Gallery. The story of this video completely reconstructed my thoughts of this indie rock band. It takes us on a journey of a man seeking for a little more, in a dark naughty sense. Certain scenes are raunchy whereas certain scenes are a little depressing. Watch the video below and get a free download of this track at ExportAMusic.
Does a professional body whipper really exist in the Williamsburg community?
These guys will be performing next Monday at The Knitting Factory, December 19th. If you happen to be lurking around Metropolitan, stop by and catch their set. The evening is called “Rock Your Face Off!”. Show begins at 7, purchase tickets over here.

Indie rock is such an overused term that defining it and charting the genre’s evolution is almost impossible, but with his new film Just Gimme Indie Rock!: The Story of an Underground Uprising, Brad Katz is attempting to do just that.
Just Gimme will cover indie music history of the past 40 years, from genre pioneers Sonic Youth and Hüsker Dü to current heavy hitters Arcade Fire and Vampire Weekend. According to the website, the film, “will be the first to connect the dots between divergent eras of indie,” using archival concert footage and “insider” interviews.
For this epic undertaking Katz is relying on support from the fans themselves. Indie loving rockers can donate their funds to a Kickstarter account until August 23. Pledge today, and help preserve indie rock history so that future generations of hipsters can be as pretentious about their obscure music knowledge as the hipsters of today.
