  • Lizzie & The Makers on Authenticity, Sophomore Albums, and David Lynch

    “If we were one of the bands playing in Twin Peaks, this would be the sound,” says Lizzie Edwards, frontwoman of Lizzie & The Makers, of their forthcoming sophomore LP, Dear Onda Wahl.  Lizzie’s chatting with me via phone from a coffee house in Red Hook, Brooklyn.  She tells...
  • Aubrey Haddard on Influences

    “If I could ask something of any listeners, it’d just be to keep an open mind.  Leave your expectations at the door.  And I’d say that about any music, not just my own,” says Aubrey Haddard.  Haddard is not your everyday Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter.  “I do love movies.  Jean Cocteau,...
  • YACHT’s Claire Evans Talks #MeToo, AI, and Peeking “inside the machine.” (Tues. at JB’s)

    Although we’re not even two weeks into the year, it’s hard to be more anxiously curious about anything in music in 2020 than our favorite hyper-heady postmodern dance-punks, YACHT, being nominated for a Grammy… a twist that was more shocking than charming, but certainly both to plentiful degrees… The...

  • TOMI: “I go down the rabbit hole more often than I should admit”.

    TOMI may have just released her second EP, but she has been writing and playing music for the vast majority of her life, since she was a child.  Earlier this year the Brooklyn-based songstress released What Kind Of Love on RCA Records, the follow-up to 2017’s debut EP, Used...
