A sea of fans for a small Pond.

By Britnee Foreman

Matt Pond PA is started in Philadelphia but is now a New York based band. The lead singer’s name…Matt Pond, hence the name: Matt Pond PA. Now that I’ve got you caught up on a history lesson let’s talk about the CMJ showcase that the band did at the Mercury lounge.

It was a late night show in the intimate back room of the Mercury lounge on a crisp …

Fleur de CMJ Saison (Emilie Simon)

By Britnee Foreman

I have been waiting a long to see Emilie Simon play live. I had first heard of her when my roommate came back from her semester in France many years ago and gave me a playlist with the French chanteuse’s songs. When I heard that she was playing at this years’ CMJ Festival, I moved all time and space to be there (okay, not really but I made sure I was …

A Ride with Black Taxi

By Britnee Foreman

Full disclosure: I used to work for this band as their intern. Now I am happy that two things have changed: 1) I don’t have to carry their equipment anymore. 2) They play less random bars in lieu for better known venues. They are a Brooklyn based quartet made up of Bill Mayo, Ezra Huleatt, Krisana Saponpong, and Jason Holmes.

The band has a sound that is hard to explicitly define while …

Neon Hitches the party into high gear

By Britnee Foreman

Going to CMJ music festival is essentially like recess for the music industry. It’s like a week-long Christmas party filled with booze and music. And now that I’ve had a week to recover, let me tell you about all the amazingness that I got to witness during one of the best weeks of my life.
The first night got off to a late start. The trains in NYC are quite …

Company of Thieves and Merriment

By Britnee Foreman

I love Company of Thieves. I’ve seen them play before at the Bowery Ballroom (which is where they played this time) and I always enjoy their music. Needless to say this will be an easy review. The Chicago quintet is made up of Genevieve Schatz: Vocals, Marc Walloch: Guitar, Mike Ortiz: Drums, Mike Maimone: Keys and percussion, Chris Faller: Bass and Percussion.

The group is a band of amazing musicians that put …
