World of Darkness

Politics and NYC bands: Shark?, World of Darkness, Sidea Sideb, and Ludlow Ejacula play Cake Shop on 01.23

We don't really want to start a discussion about politics here, but it's impossible to deny that one candidate is winning hands down the support of the NYC emerging band vote... Six local acts will perform at Cake Shop on Saturday January 23rd in support of Bernie Sanders, and, since we've never covered some of them, we'll take the opportunity to do so, check them out below! In the picture, Shark?

Weed Hounds and World of Darkness play The Living Room on 12.05

Indie rock lovers with (democratic) socialist tendencies might want to visit The Living Room on Saturday December 5th, to witness a Bernie Sanders fundraiser featuring an interesting bill of local electric acts sharing psychedelic and noise rock tendencies. Headlining the show will be recently regrouped noise-gazers Weed Hounds (pictured - and yes, "noisegazer" is accepted as a genre by Last.fm). Their single "Heather W" from last year's self titled album, has the perfect balance of fuzz, dissonance, reverb and melody, and deserves a spot in our playlist featuring the best psych/shoegazer songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

One of the openers will be self defined "sad-core" collective World of Darkness, a brand new NYC band that released an interesting debut two song EP this past April.  Single "Back in My College Bed" (streaming below) refreshes our memories about the good days when slacker rock turned more mature, melodic, and lyrical. Their second single Your Roots is a blue, electric ballad that supports the "sad-core" claim. These two bands will be joined on stage also by dream poppers Gingerlys and noise purveyors Warcries (featuring members of Advaeta).
