Robbers On High Street
Robbers On High Street “Electric Eye”>
Jon Pareles of the NY TIMES recently stated, â€œThereâ€™s a lot of the Beatles, especially their piano-pumping side, in the songs of Robbers on High Street, updated with Elvis Costelloâ€™s gruffness and a matter-of-fact desperation.â€ The Brooklyn outfit released the â€œELECTRIC EYEâ€ vinyl single this summer with b-side â€œFace The Fogâ€ via Engine Room Recordings. The two tunes are pulled from a collection of songs comprising the bandâ€™s forthcoming third album, Hey There Golden Hair, possessing a new sound that harkens back to the brash, instantaneous pop appeal of their debut Tree City.
Fans of the Robbers’ previous single, â€œThe Fatalist,â€ will recognize the calculated strut of â€œElectric Eye,â€ a song packed with enough soul claps to fill even the most discriminate dance floor; while â€œFace in the Fogâ€ bounces playfully between a Gal Costa backing track and a soaring chorus dripping with vocal harmonies. Alana Harper of WNYCâ€™s MUSIC HUB called â€œElectric Eye,â€ â€œan aggressively catchy tune that harks back to the big, beautiful, horn-filled pop-rock of the ’60s and ’70s.â€
My Cousin The Emperor
My Cousin, The Emperor â€œNothing Left For Us To Findâ€
â€œHailing from the green pastures and rolling hills of Brooklyn, NY, MY COUSIN, THE EMPEROR is a young band of country punks with a book full of ragged honkey-tonk anthems,â€ attests RELIX MAG. They released their debut album A Long Way From Home last year and won the WNYC â€œBattle OF The Boroughsâ€ for BEST BAND IN BROOKLYN and the IMA for â€œBest Alt Country Song.â€
â€œThey say the Devil is in the details, but God is in there too,â€ notes John Schaefer from WNYC-Soundcheck. â€œIt’s those little details that can make or break a song, and I hear those details in My Cousin, The Emperor’s songs.” My Old Kentucky Blog says, “A Long Way From Home is filled to the brim with both alone-in-the-pouring-rain ballads and throw-me-another-whiskey barroom romps.” Time Out New York says â€œMy Cousin, the Emperor makes happily gnarly music; the bandâ€™s debut album, A Long Way from Home, trades in rolling country rock & roll.â€ and Brooklyn Rocks blog calls the music â€œReverb-heavy melancholy that is very comparable to songs from artists like Chris Isaak and Roy Orbison.â€
MC, TE are releasing a single disc, double EP â€œTHE SUBWAY EPSâ€ in Feb 2011.
Only Living Boy
Only Living Boy eats raw hearts for breakfast. Fueled by lifeâ€™s stunning brokenness, the band offers an authentic and poignant experience through a distinct rock sound. The trioâ€™s unrivaled style is a combination of 70s vinyl inherited from their parents and the alternative rock of their own MTV adolescence, rounded out with bits of jam, blues, reggae and punk. Thanks to their hometownâ€™s suspension between Pennsylvanian woods and New York City concrete, Only Living Boyâ€™s Northwest New Jersey roots help define its sound and attitudeâ€”organic with an edge.
Throughout two years of constant national touring (150-200 shows/year) the band has developed a ravenous, grass roots fan-base, which continues to grow with each and every show. They recently released of the double A Side Digital Single â€“ â€œWorthless/Homesickâ€, possess the road chops of a band twice their age and the songwriting prowess that only comes from real experience.
â€œIndie-approved alt-country with touches of Caribbean and doo-wop sounds blended with their generally rollicking approach. Sounding like a mix between Bob Dylan and Joe Strummer, albeit with more irony, singer/guitarist Jason Rossi was perfunctory with a detached charm.â€ – BROOKLYN VEGAN
â€œHey Battlefield is an example of great music made outside the grips of major-league record labels. Three masterful practitioners of various instruments and multiple genres, creating a seemingly endless stream of perfectly orchestrated original songs, and motivated by a mutual love of making and sharing music.â€ – V MAGAZINE
” The lyrics materialize by his low and authentic voice, complemented by a subtle use of harmonica.â€ – INTERVIEW MAGAZINE
