On Sunday, October 5, EMA wrapped up her tour in style at Bowery Ballroom with a powerful performance that was totally absorbed in the intimate crowd that filled the venue.

Being the last show of her tour for her 2014 album Future’s Void, it was naturally a special show. Erika made note that it would be the last show with the current lineup that plays with her, who are likely to move onto other projects now that the tour is complete.

They made the most of the night, performing powerful versions of tracks such as “Satellites,” “Dead Celebrity,” and “Neuromancer.” Then there was the always emotional and amazing performance of “California” which saw her throw the mic down allowing the power of the song to truly register within me.

The Ballroom should have been packed out more than it was, but Anderson made the best of the night, giving those lucky enough to be there a show that we won’t forget any time soon.

Ed Schrader’s Music Beat had a good 2014. I was introduced to them when I saw them open for Cloud Nothings at Baby’s All Right at the start of the year. The next show came when they supported Future Island on their very memorable show at Webster Hall over the summer.

Earlier in the month they played their final show of the year at Death By Audio, which as you know, will be one of the final shows at the DIY Brooklyn venue, which is closing its doors next month (I gotta get there still..)

Andrew St. Clair was at the show, and got some shots of Ed Schrader’s Music Beat along with the other bands on the bill, which included: Sex Jams, H. Honne Wells, and White Rope.

Tiny Ruins at Mercury Lounge (October 5, 2014)

All photos (and words) by Rachel Barrish

England born and New Zealand bred singer/songwriter, Tiny Ruins is the project of Hollie Fullbrook. She has released two EP’s and two full length albums, the most recent being Brightly Painted One out on Flying Nun Records.

I originally discovered Tiny Ruins last year during CMJ where she played a solo set. While beautiful, it definitely works better with a full band. On Sunday October 5 she played along with her bandmates, bassist/back up vocalist Cass Basil and drummer Alexander Freer.

It was indeed a perfect Sunday evening for a Tiny Ruins performance. It’s the kind of music you would expect to hear while enjoying a coffee and a novel inside a vintage bookstore. The room at Mercury Lounge was just quiet enough for people to hear a whisper or a cell phone buzz. They played an hour long set featuring songs from all previous albums, including a cover of Toy Love’s song, “Rebel”. Fullbrook’s tame but enduring stage personality set the mood for sweet enjoyment and romance, with couples swinging and rocking back and forth to the sounds of her acoustic guitar.

1_Cat Power_Modern Sky

It was Cat Power who was lined up to close out the first ever Modern Sky Festival, but it ended up being the festival that closed her out. After only four songs, Chan Marshall and her band were told by the stage crew that they had to end the show, a shocking move that sent all the fans who spent their hard earned money (and time waiting) home utterly disappointed, confused and ultimately angry.

Thankfully she opened with “The Greatest,” which I at least got to hear. It was a very short teaser, but Marshall and her band sounded awesome from what I heard. With Marshall’s history, there’s always that worry that she may cut a show short, but it ended up being the festival who put an untimely end to the show of their headliner.

Cut short the main headliner of your new fest. That makes sense. Alrighty then…

Here’s a photo gallery of her short set.

Preview: STS9 at Best Buy Theater

This Friday STS9 are making their return to the Best Buy Theater with a show that is sure to have everyone moving.

Marking their first show back in NYC since disbanding with founding member and bassist David Murphy. Murphy was an fundamental component of STS9. However, as a fan, I’m not worried about what they can do musically and in the live setting without him there. No matter what, it will be a captivating experience.

STS9 have headlined some of the biggest festivals, so being able to catch them at the Best Buy Theater is going to be surreal. Make sure you grab tickets before its too late.

[music video]: Adult Jazz – Am Gone

By Will Oliver, October 15th 2014 Music Video Video

Adult Jazz

If you’re not familiar with Adult Jazz’s terrific debut album Gist Is, you’ve slept on one of the best albums of the year.

One of the first songs that was shared from the album was the multi-layered and colorful offering “Am Gone.” It’s just gotten an official music video, directed in black and white by director Samuel Travis, and starring Suren Seneviratne who is walking around outside trapped in the confines of gallows.

The video features a powerful artistic vision, fitting for a band that is really pushing the boundaries of music to exciting levels.

Check out the video below, as well as the bands CMJ show dates next week, which will mark their U.S. live debut.

1_Stars_Modern Sky

Yesterday Montreal’s longstanding group Stars returned with their new album No One Is Lost which was released via ATO Records.

They stopped by Central Park for the Modern Sky Festival twp weekends ago to perform some new cuts from the album (such as the delightful “From The Night”) as well as old favorites (such as “Elevator Love Letter”). It was my first time seeing them live, and I gotta say, they had me impressed.

Duel vocalists Amy Millan and Torquil Campbell have a great chemistry together, feeding off each other and sharing their enthusiasm to the receptive crowd that was on hand. The rest of the band delivered a tight set behind them, taking us from the sunset to the cool night in style.

Find the setlist posted below, along with a photo gallery of their set.

1_The Both_Modern Sky

Combine the talents of Aimee Mann and Ted Leo and you have the wonderful duo known as The Both. They were a perfect transition from the Chinese bands that played during the first half of day, into the somewhat low-key 2nd half that also featured sets from Stars and Cat Power.

Ted Leo bravely introduced the band in Chinese (which he wrote down) which humored the large Chinese audience that stuck around. This was an encouraging start to what was a totally delightful set that was mellow enough to nurse my hangover until I finally recovered. The highlight came during “Hummingbird” a wonderful track of their self-titled album which they released earlier in the year. If it wasn’t on your radar, here’s an endorsement to go out and find it.

1_Second Hand Rose_Modern Sky

Chinese rock act Second Hand Rose were the surprise of the Modern Sky Festival, and easily my favorite Chinese act to grace the festival’s stage by far. They were totally bombastic and theatrical, with bright vibrant outfits that translated well with their enthusiastic performance.

Their sound mixed Chinese music with modern rock, a bridge that was showcased with their fun cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal,” done completely in Chinese. These guys were having a shit ton of fun on stage, and this energy was shared within the crowd.

I wouldn’t hesitate to see these guys live again, they were fantastic.
