There’s a reason so many legendary bands come from NYC. You’ve got the five boroughs plus the surrounding “metro area” and all of them feed bands into the NYC music scene. That’s a lot of competition and as a result you have a better chance of good stuff rising to the top. There’s something for everyone, and for me in the last year there have been of host of great sonic discoveries.
This set is a sort of aural exploration of the last year or so for me in NYC. This is a collection of bands I’ve seen live, record labels that I’ve followed, guests from the show, friends I’ve made and surprises from all corners of our sleepless city. It’s not THE comprehensive list for the super-hip by any means, but it’s my 2017 love letter to my favorite place in the world.

Brooklyn fuzz-rockers Sun Voyager rip it up tonight (Sat. 10/14) at Knitting Factory BK in support of the Swedish hard rock group Truck Fighters!
You should go. I’m going. Let’s meet up.
My pal Matt, host of the Rodent Hour on Radio Free Brooklyn, was kind enough to have me on his live show this past week to hang out with 2/3 of Sun Voyager and chat about the band’s first full-length in the works, our favorite Brooklyn bands, and of course Canadian Thanksgiving. It was fun! Have a listen before we all head to Knitting Factory tonight.
Spring is fighting it’s way in this year, so on this rainy Saturday morning I started the show off with some soothing sounds that slowly built to raucous heights.
Get some slow burn with psychedelic soul and hard rock swagger with all the vintage goodness you’re used to, plus new tracks from Strange Majik, New Planet Trampoline, White Mystery and Black Mountain!
Tracklist below -> Continue reading #1612: Cadence & Cascade
If you’ve listened to the show at all since I started spinning newer stuff, you’ve likely heard a LOT of tunes from this label. Since it’s near the end of the year I thought I’d take a show and pay tribute to the great releases this Brooklyn-based distributor has been putting out the last few years. So strap in for a MAJOR psychedelic journey, and if you dig what you hear you can get it in all forms over at http://beyondbeyondisbeyond.com!

This week’s all about transitions. The transition from summer to autumn, namely, and all the changes that come with it.
We took some time to highlight some great labels (Sunrise Ocean Bender, Riding Easy Records, Cardinal Fuzz) and of course I threw some great selections from Beyond Beyond Is Beyond in there. Full playlist after the jump.
Lotsa fuzz this week, see you next time and hope all your transitions are smooth.
