  Austra (Toronto-based singer/songwriter Katie Stelmanis) took the stage at Brooklyn's tiny, Glasslands Gallery in a fairly undramatic fashion, yet conjured up some dark drama during an hour-long set that was moody, broody, and beautiful. Recently signing to Domino records, she was accompanied by several others on stage, compared to Austra's typical line-up of Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski, and bassist Dorian Wolf.  "Young and Gay" chimed with ...

So maybe he’s not a band per se, but Brooklyn-based producer DATALOG  and his new EP, Threads, is worth an alert. Threads is a hazy, warm blend of electronica, jazz, and world beats, all wrapped up in one kicked-back, noir-tinged package. Fans of everything from Flying Lotus to Massive Attack take note. Songs like “Sink Babies” offer subtle samples and thumps aplenty; the title track is a melancholy acid trip that demands ass shaking. Not ... Read More

Art School Drop-In

BY emily dirienzo in Artsy

Recently I coined the term school-sickness as a way of describing  the existential crisis many of us have when we’re reluctantly ripped from the protective womb of academia. Not only does the Brooklyn Skill Share have a remedy for the post-grad blues, but the grassroots organization offers a priceless experience for those of us who didn’t have the luxury of attending fancy art schools. Brooklyn Skill Share is organized and taught by local ... Read More

Neverland’s got nothing on the whimsical world constructed by Pearl and the Beard. The N.Y.C. based trio carries listeners on their backs through a DIY dreamland that is unpredictable, yet safe and warm like the comfort of one’s own bed.  The band’s debut album God Bless Your Weary Soul, Amanda Richardson is adventurous and may require a compass. Pearl and the Beard pairs the mythical and distant, as in the track “Vessel” a ... Read More

Do you like bicycles, art, and weird shit?  What a silly question, of course you do!  That said, you’re going to want to attend the silent auction benefit, "Bizarre! Weird Bikes!
