EP: T I N D E R G R A M – T I N D E R G R A M

Even though everyone on the east coast is cautious of getting let down by false foreshadows of spring, I am confident that true spring weather is imminent in the next few weeks.  During April showers I am listening to T I N D E R G R A M non stop while waiting for May flowers.  T I N D E R …

mp3: PORCHES. – Franklin the Flirt

This weekend I had the fortune of seeing PORCHES. play live at the Northside Festival in Brooklyn, and although I was already a big fan of their music that’s been floating around the internet for a while now, their live performance completely won me over.  They are currently prepping to release their debut full-length on Exploding in Sound Records and …

mp3: Sidewalk Kal – Non Believers (prod. Mattron)

Last night Terence and I ventured out to our hipster haven in Brooklyn to meet up with the cool dudes Sidewalk Kal and Ghost Row who both gave amazing performances in an amazingly cramped space.  Even though their set hardly lasted over 20 minutes, with Kal only jumping in for a few, they reminded proved there is a lot more …

Video: LVL UP – Nightshade

LVL UP is a Purchase, NY-based band, including two members of Spook Houses.  When I wrote about Spook Houses’ Trying LP I wrote that one of the reasons I liked it so much was because of how much it reminded me of early 90’s indie such as Built To Spill.  LVL UP’s music, however, (especially “Nightshade”) channels the grunge vibes on the …

mp3: Sidewalk Kal – OctoTrex (ft. ID 4 WINDZ)(prod. ID 4 WINDZ)

Recently, when people ask me who my favorite undiscovered rapper is I always try to put them on to Sidewalk Kal.  Currently based out of Chicago, Sidewalk Kal has been blessing us with a consistent stream of great music for a while now and shows no sign of slowing down.  “OctoTrex” is Kal’s latest release and it has him teaming …
