New Track: "Playoff" - Makeup Tutorial

"Playoff" is the latest single to appear from Makeup Tutorial. Ruminating in lo-fi, bedroom-pop atmospherics, the soft, whispered vocals are contrasted by the forceful, acoustic strums. Mixed emotions express doubt over sustainability, as the outer perimeters morph sonically. It’s a song that begins and ends gently, yet resonates with a resounding strength.

   

Cindy Cane plays Brooklyn Psych Fest on 07.06 and 5 more NYC shows this summer

NYC band Cindy Cane is going to have a busy summer of 2019, with six live shows scheduled in NYC between July and August. That is either a sign of naiveté or of buzzworthy status, since getting enough fans to a gig twice a year is already a struggle for most emerging NYC bands  - we'll see how that pans out! The "post-everything" band seems intent on rejecting genre constraints in favor of imposing a peculiarly lo-fi and post-punk inspired character on genres as disparate as cold wave and folk music. The mangled 'country' of east river take me under (streaming below) feels like the only possible kind of folk a city like New York can produce. Don't miss their upcoming show at the Knitting Factory within the Brooklyn Psych Fest on July 6th.

Dadas, the debut release from Fast Car Slow Car, a.k.a. Breshon Martzall (Straw Hats), recently arrived.
