The lovely electric pop of Madeline Kenney’s “Perfect Shapes”

After last year’s debut “Night Night at First Landing,” we were curious what direction Madeline Kenney’s newest album would take. Mercy me, we were not disappointed. "Perfect Shapes" is a multi-genre, multi-layered album with touches of synth infusions partnered with melodic bass lines and touches of shoegazy guitar melodies all grounded by that strong, twang-touched voice. A beautiful key to the success of Kenney’s latest is her ability to keep us moving with her throughout each song’s journey. Empowering snappy songs transition into melodic dreamy driftings that are in a land far away from rock n roll--kudos to the spaceship that flies into “Your Art”--but let’s be clear: this electric pop album is centered around solid musicianship, fantastic compositions and lyrics we can relate to. Brava, lady. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor 





Zøume brings industrial-metal to the Knit on 12.21

Industrial rock seems to be experiencing a timid reinassaince in NYC - and that's better than nothing, considering how much of a niche genre it is. Brooklyn quartet Zoume is blending the genre's clangy electronic sounds and apocalyptic atmospheres with post-hardcore, metalcore, and even hip hop influences, forging an imaginative hybrid bound to become the soundtrack of anybody's favorite nightmares. Those interested in a radical break from Christmas music should not miss their show at The Knitting Factory on December 21st.

New Music Video: "Unreasonable Rider" - Fine Jewelers

The creative pairing of Matt Korvette (Pissed Jeans) & DP Helmer, a.k.a. Fine Jewelers, recently dropped its debut EP Braindance Through The Midnight D - Beat via BANK Records. “Unreasonable Rider” dispenses noise-laced, ultra-pulsating beats as distorted roaring vocals reign down over the top. Unrelenting intensity tips the techno scales the limits. Its video, which stars and is directed by Hackey Garbáge, is a lavish, humorous display, whose calm demeanor is in direct contrast to the track's sonic aggression.





Miss Grit's "Talk Talk" is a Masterclass in Quiet Rage

“Talk Talk,” the new single from NYC-based outfit Miss Grit, was devised in an empty dorm room as frontwoman Margaret Sohn pined over the fatal idealism of modern romances, and this mis-en-scene that informs the track’s creation is immediately apparent in her powerful-yet-restrained vocal delivery. While the track is bolstered by analog synth arpeggios that crescendo at the chorus, the strength of “Talk Talk” is built upon Sohn’s halted lyricism, a performance that carries a palpable, visceral frustration at “the unrealistic view of love that society and movies ingrain into girls’ minds.” Sohn’s quiet-storm vox against cataclysmic synthesizers creates a soundscape that is both emotionally raw and dynamically energizing, a perfect blend of introspection and catharsis; here’s hoping the rest of Miss Grit’s forthcoming Talk Talk EP maintains the same balancing act.
Miss Grit’s debut extended play drops January 11th. Until then, stream their new single below.





Plastic Weather's New Music Video

Plastic Weather just dropped a music video for their song "Doppelgänger." Filmed entirely on an iPhone, the video is fast and chaotic. It shows the members wandering around the Enchanted Forest theme park, wearing a variety of crazy, menacing, ridiculous masks. It’s enchantingly creepy. If Alice in Wonderland was a synth-based musical, it would look a lot like this music video. The goofy, gothic aesthetic fits the mood of the song quite well. As the band dances around the park, their playfulness not only highlights the chemistry the members have with each other, but with their audience as well. Watching them makes you feel like you’re one of the gang, in on whatever prank it is they’re playing. Give it a watch below!
