Marian Hill have had themselves a whirlwind of a year, being the most Shazam’d artist of 2016 after the release of their debut album Act One, which was released via Republic Records. But this Brooklyn born duo haven’t seemed to let it get to their heads. Earlier this year they played a Steve Madden show at Music Hall of Williamsburg to a sold out crowd and they have returned to Brooklyn just two months later for a performance at the gorgeous new venue, Brooklyn Steel.

Metal greats Metallica have been touring hard non-stop as a part of their “Worldwired Tour” following the release of their 2016 album Hardwired… to Self-Destruct.

Following a show at MetLife Stadium, Metallica played to a sold out crowd at Nassau Coliseum, actually the only show of the tour not played at a stadium (but still not quite as small the last time we saw them). This made it something pretty special for those die-hard fans who were able to grab a ticket.

If Australian psych-rockers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are in town and you’re not seeing them perform, you’re missing out on one of the best live forces that rock and roll has to offer. Not only that, but they’re only starting to truly reach their peak, getting more powerful with every new tour. It seems like others are really starting to take note, as the entire show was streamed live on facebook by Pitchfork.

Slow Dancer at Rockwood Music Hall (March 23, 2017)

By Will Oliver, March 30th 2017

Slow Dancer is the project of Australian singer Simon Okely. He’s recently signed to ATO Records, and is set to release In A Mood, his first record for them (he released his debut album Surrender in 2014) on June 9.

On March 23, Okely made his NYC debut, playing an intimate set at Rockwood Music Hall along with his two-piece band, giving us a preview of what’s to come on the new record, and a run-through tracks from Surrender.

You got the feeling in the room that this is an artist that won’t stay relatively unknown for long. Based on the reaction that songs like lead single “Don’t Believe” me got from the Rockwood crowd, it’s only a matter of time until Slow Dancer are gracing larger spaces.

Find the setlist posted below, followed by some more photos from his performance.

Best Songs of 2016: Anthony’s Picks

By Anthony Bauer, January 22nd 2017 — with 1 comment

It’s safe to say that 2016 was a pretty weird year, but one thing we can all agree on is just how crazy of a year it was for music.  From the highly anticipated to the complete out of nowhere surprise drops, the year truly didn’t disappoint at all.  We finally got that Radiohead album we were all clamoring for and even got some releases we weren’t expecting to see in 2016 (we’re looking at you, SchmilcoAbandoned Mansion, Epoch and Run The Jewls 3).

There were so many great releases that it was difficult keeping up with all of them, which was literally half the battle.  You’ll notice that some artists I chose multiple songs which is not a mistake, its 100% on purpose.  There were certain songs from certain artists off of certain albums that just were just so good that I couldn’t not include them.

Formerly known as Chet Faker, Australian producer Nick Murphy returned to New York with his new moniker, for a sold out performance at Webster Hall.
