Debut Berdmajik LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Berdmajik, a.k.a. Donnie Felton (of Grubby Little Hands), recently released his debut full-length album via Golden Brown. SPELLS is steeped in slinky, soulful R&B, as steamy electropop wafts over an island destination. In the midst of the hot and heavy air of intimacy, a funky get down is triggered. Berdmajik is slated to appear at Kung Fu Necktie on Thursday, June 15, on a billing with Telequanta and Trey Frey.


From our live listings submissions: God Tiny plays The Knit on 05.26

To promote our new, uber-fantastic DIY NYC live listings section (check it out, you can post your show for free here - it will then appear also on our NYC homepage 2-3 days before the event's date!), we are highlighting some of the artist that already used this nifty tool.

God Tiny is a quintet that pulls off blues rock remarkably well - which ain't easy, because it's a genre that, due to its limited harmonic palette, can get boring easily. The Brooklyn band, though, in particular in single "Cosmos" is able to create an engaging, tense, and imaginative psychedelic arrangement, enhanced by powerful riffs and gorgously gritty distorted guitars. The vocals deserve a particular mention too, as they soar above the sea of instruments with a tone and flair reminiscent young Robert Plant. If they can pull all of this off live when they play The knit on 05.26, the audience will be in for a treat. Check out track "Revolution Run" streaming below.


New Track: "Sulking" - Cameron Wayne

Lo-fi, garage-punk, Asheville, NC transplant Cameron Wayne sounds like he is ready to plug-in and let it rip anywhere and everywhere on his new full-length album. Turning the fuzz up to eleven, he's teamed up Philly's own Suicide Bong Tapes to release Spiral Mountain. We currently have the track, "Sulking," on repeat... And that piano melody instantly had us searching YouTube to revisit The Munsters's theme song (which is classic - miss that show).


Digital submissions: Grungy garage band Butthole delivers crude fun in self-titled LP

If you take issue with new music is that's too clean and polite, then Butthole is the answer. With a self-titled album that contains a track called “I Went to High School and Graduated” ending in the repetition of “Bitch! Whore! Slut!,” it becomes clear that the band is not scared of pushing boundaries. This is what makes Butthole unique—they’re not one of those indie bands passing themselves off as punk. They’re the real thing, and they know it. Butthole is currently on a brief mid west tour. Check out our favorite song from last year's "Secret EP," entitled "She Boop She Boo Thang," streaming below. - Lilly Milman

Artist to Watch: Shit Giver

The artful dynamics of trio Shit Giver leave an indelible impact. On their debut full-length, entitled ...Life, the band's knotty guitar lines and undulating bass grooves propel forward with an urgency that sounds like a more refined take on hardcore punk. Led by Preston Mendell's mirthless sing-speak, there's an assaulting intensity to their cutting fury that does seek to modernize the post-collegiate malaise of early to mid-nineties post-punk. It's a remarkable step forward from their promising demo recordings, as it perfectly exemplifies how they direct that raw vitriol with a trenchant intelligence that cannot be ignored.

...Life is out now on their official bandcamp page. Though they're currently touring the Pacific Northwest, Shit Giver will be back soon to play a hometown show at the Bootleg on July 15.
