Level 6 of My Little Underground features New York veteran noise-rockers, A Place To Bury Strangers! Their fifth album Pinned is out now and we talked about how they want to evolve creativly, legal issues faced by DIY performance spaces, and building their own studio. I tried my hardest to get them to verbalize their process in creating such an explosive on-stage experience. I also had an interesting run in with New York rising stars, Giants at a Long Island garage show.

Watchout Vol. 7

WATCHOUT VOL 7

Vol. 7 of my Watchout playlist series on TIDAL has arrived with new music from fresh faces from the eclectic pool of New York’s underground music community. Hear from the Queens born soulful songstress The Afr0dite, the head turning explosiveness of Sloppy Jane, and the creative, colorful, ukulele based pop from Jackie Mendoza. Atlanta gets some love here as well with a gorgeous track from the very talented duo known as Chloe x Halle. I had to finish this playlist with Will Toledo wishing Car Seat Headrest had Frank Ocean’s voice and James Brown’s stage presence. Happy listening!

Check out the playlist here.
