Flower Girl unveils "Wafing Online" from upcoming LP

Brooklyn lo-fiers Flower Girl, whose debut album 'Okie Dokie Howdy Doody' was named NYC Record of the Month late last year in this very blog, just unveiled single 'Wading Online' (streaming below) from their upcoming LP 'Tuck In Your Tie-Dye' scheduled to drop on November 11 on BUFU Records. With this new song the band take us for a ride back to the three chord songs or early Velvet Underground, adapted to the "nu slacking" tendencies adopted by many young Brooklyn musicians. Keep an eye out for a release party date, as of now not announced.


Mood Music: Dim Wit - "Wow Ow Now"

It's nearly impossible for these Deli eyes to stay open this morning without the help of this new track by the lo-fi funny boys of Dim Wit. They just dropped their first official single on Friday and for anyone that's had the chance to see Dim Wit live, you'll know how perfectly appropriate of a debut track it is for the duo's (sometimes trio) schtick.

Just picture them, clad in colorful wigs, rockin' about as those slinky string lines and screams come in as "Wow Ow Now" runs its course. Channeling Dim Wit's energy both on "Wow Ow Now" and from experiencing their live sets is the only way to start the week out.

Listen to "Wow Ow Now" below and be sure to catch them next week at Smart Collective.


Mood Music: Scourge of Ians - "La La"

Though we're still reeling from the heaviness of Sleep's performance last night, we're in need of something just as weighty but at a faster pace. What more perfect a fit than a litte bit of Scourge of Ians, whose consistently perfect balance of classic, raw punk with rhythm oriented post punk offers a nice and needed break from our local saturated music scene. 

They'll be joining Disassturbator (for the final show of their tour!) and Moogwynd on stage tonight at the Kenton Club, so if you're still in the mood later make sure you stop by. It's free!

DAN DAN: The band you need to know

If you find yourself caught in some sort of music rut, consider expanding your radar to include the talents of DAN DAN. Our latest Artist of the Month winners are coming up on their one year annviersary of show-playing, making their debut you last Halloween at Slims.

Since then, the local trio have been dishing out heavily synthy, electro-laced instrumental rock that catalyzes deeper thoughts and fevered movements. We're desperately craving more than just the four tracks on their Soundcloud page but until then we can stay satiated on their live performances.

DAN DAN's next unmissable set is actually tomorrow at Valentines, along with Fake Fireplace and Daughter Talk. It's only $5, so be sure to stop by and congratulate them on their poll win and anniversary of band-dom!

Robot Princess' upcoming record release show at Footlight on 11.11

Robot Princess (our NYC Record of the Month this past February) is getting ready to celebrate the release of their second full-length album 'Tentacles.' If you love gritty guitars, nonsensical poetry, releasing anxieties, and the sensation of endless freedom, stop by at Ridgewood's Footlight on November 11th and join the celebration! Streaming below the record's excellent opening track entitled 'Claudia.' And if Queens is too far for you, you can catch the band at Mercury Lounge on November 20th. - Ashley Muniz
