Over a year ago, fans of notoriously reclusive, reticent Long Island natives Brand New were treated to the band’s first new music in six years—a track called “Mene,” which was punishing and laden with biblical themes and lyricism.
Happy Thirsty Thursday lovers! I don’t know about you but my taste buds are craving some soul, oldies, and rock. If you’re right there with me I have the perfect solution. Come on out to The Grand Victory tonight at 11pm and live a little with DJ Jerk Chicken. Check out the promo mix below. Hopefully I’ll see you tonight!

The Google Spanish to English translation for “abanico” is a fan. In the music culture, Il Abanico is a glistening pop outfit from Bogotá, Colombia. The band consists of Nicolas Losada on a guitar, Julianna Ronderos on a microphone and supporting members on various experimental instruments. Il Abanico is music that shines beautiful rays across the room. One hear of Ronderos’ voice and you can grasp a distinctive allurement to their sweet melodic sounds. This band is currently residing in Brooklyn and playing many regular shows around Williamsburg. If you haven’t checked out their music, get a free download of their Crossing Colors EP on their bandcamp. Il Abanico will also be attending SXSW, so feel free to visit their facebook to stalk them at that love fest.
