Three great NYC artists play Union Pool on 05.02: Wilsen, Alpenglow and Hite

We feel like recommending this bill of NYC based artists playing Union Pool pm May 02. Wilsen is a band led by amazing songwriter Tamsin Wilson, they were featured on the cover of our magazine a few years ago. Alpenglow, hailing from New England but now full Brooklynites, play similarly ghostly folk rock, and they do it well. Hite, on the other hand, is a new face in the local scene, and a compelling one: the solo act's debut LP "Light of a Strange Day" is one of the most interesting releases we've heard this year, a sparse record filled with inspiring sonic ideas, edgy soul songwriting and a voice that's impressively controlled and expressive. Do not miss!





Soft Fangs play Baby's All Right on April 29th

This will mark Soft Fangs' second show with both bands; the three of them performed at Boot & Saddle in Philadelphia on Wednesday. Lutkevich will also play to support his latest release, a split EP with fellow Brooklyn bedroom pop band Bellows. You can stream the whole record -- which includes Soft Fangs' tracks "Sugarblood" and "Nine Lives" - below. - Will Sisskind

R.D. King Releases Debut Album at The Rockwell Theatre 4/27

 Boston guitarist R.D. King is preparing to release an album of masterfully crafted instrumentals in vs. Self, his debut effort.  Comprised of nine tracks of transformative journeys of sound, King fully utilizes and expands the capabilities of the instrument, creating an ensemble sound with his fingers.  It's easy to get lost in the genre-defying work of King, with each track taking you to a different, unexpected place, from classical to pop to progressive metal and beyond.  Experience it for yourself at the Rockville Theatre in Somerville, MA on 4/27, featuring Jenee Halstead.  Click the link below for the first single, "An End to Wandering".  -Brian Varneke





Pleasure Prince bring their sensual synth pop to Don Pedro’s on 4/22

“When that synth hits you just right” is the descriptive tagline Brooklyn duo Pleasure Prince displays on their Instagram account.  That is certainly a fitting description for a sound that weaves pulsating keys with an emotionally soulful pop vocal sensibility. On their slow groove track "You Look Good To Me" (streaming below) a mood of heightened sensual attraction pervades the soundscape, as hooky synth lines and electronic percussion take hold.  Other tracks like “Lines for George” feature reverberated female vocals that echo the sweetness and retro-futuristic sci-fi edge of the much beloved Broadcast.  However “Evening Queen” surprises by removing the synths, allowing the lushly produced alternating male and female vocals to take center stage.  Pleasure Prince play next on 4/22 at Don Pedro. - Dave Cromwell
