In case you missed the premiere of their new video this week at Summerscreen (whose music is curated by our own wonderful music editor Nicole.)
Oh hey, you like Morning Benders!? And Cults too? What about Twin Sister?? Well then, we’ve got a show for you! On Thursday 11/18, all three of these super stellar bands will be taking the stage at Webster Hall for your entertainment pleasure and we’ve got tickets for one lucky reader!
With the Morning Benders release of Big Echo earlier this year, which included a co-producer credit from Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, the Brooklyn-by-Bay Area band had an instant hit. In the shadow of their debut that largely failed to reach a wide audience, Big Echo actually reverberated much like the hollow bouncing sound the album shares its name with. Their truly texturized sound has basically got us yearning for what comes next from them.
If you like the feeling of being enamored, I suggest this is a show you should not miss. And if you win, well, free tickets are nothing to shake a stick at. Comment below to enter to win!
I unfortunately missed the Zaza set, although heard from some folks that they were one of the better sets that night. DOM rocked it, with trippy projections on a big screen behind them (that would also flash “DOM” between songs, lest you forget who you were watching) and trying to rouse a chorus of “USA!” after they finished their song “Living in America.” One poor audience member attempted to stage dive at the very end of their set, to be met with nothing but the cold, hard floor of the Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Twin Sister absolutely killed it, filling up the entire venue with their fantastic sound while Andrea Estella was running around stage barefoot singing and dancing.
Next came Memory Tapes, whose drummer is I think one of the better I’ve seen in a while. They were great, getting almost jammy at times but in a really good way, but did anyone else feel like the vocals sounded a bit flat?
All in all a great show. Pics below.
