Yaeji – “MY IMAGINATION”

TRAX OF THE DAY | Kathy “Yaeji” Lee is a Flushing, Queens native as a single child in a Korean family. Growing up, Yaeji moved from New York to Atlanta when she was 5, and then to South Korea in the third grade before finally after moving frequently came back home to New York and began releasing music, the sum of which can be heard on her new album WHAT WE DREW. It’s a mediation on sound design, R&B grooves that ebb and flow, and clever lyrical melodies that sound like circular and therefor hypnotic."

Local businesses aka the reason why New York doesn’t suck like middle America are suffering here are some ways we can step up and be conscious of their hardship bc we all don’t want to return from quarantine mortified at the holy chain store mall that’ll take the place of our final frontier! Here here to Immigrants, self made entrepreneurs, team hustlers, dream chasers, culture havens!

Other Music was an influential and uncompromising New York City record store that was vital to the city’s early 2000s indie music scene. But when
the store is forced to close its doors due to rent increases, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost. Through vibrant storytelling, the documentary captures the record store’s vital role in the musical and cultural life of the city, and highlights the artists whose careers it helped launch including Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, William Basinski, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Yo La Tengo and TV On The Radio. Online rental premiere this Friday April 17th, 2020!

The Four Quadrants Of Change

An Early March Sultan Room Diaspora Show Not To Miss

For those that haven’t been over to Brooklyn’s Sultan Room, the odd story of our new neighbors Varun Kataria and Tyler Erickson will warm your heart. Places that mean something to us are so important to hold onto; as digital disconnectedness and the massive boom for the 1% recreate a hallowing feeling in large American cities.

On March 10th catch a Diaspora show down! Featuring the Moroccan Soul of Soul Gnawa, the Psych Dance of Los Cumpleaños, and the punk disco of The Mauskovic Dance Band

Camp Saint Helene Debuting strong with "Mother" Elevtr Takes a look

Camp Saint Helene debuting strong with ‘Mother.’

[Excerpt] “What if Jefferson Airplane & The Doors drowned in the open sea and the oceanic feeling transformed ‘light my fire’ into something Marissa Nadler would croon anew instead? Camp Saint Helene debuts strong with the 8-track LP Mother, in it a transmutation of 60’s drug-gaze rock morphing into haunt folk that both imbues a feeling and state of mind that’s both grandiose and sonorous when it wants to be and hushed and patiently unpredictable in the folds...”

Dothead “HeartCruncher”

“HeartCruncher” explores existential lessons on pain, growing, and culture. Inside the sonic machine of this maze that is Dothead are some echos of early aughts post-grunge mathy bands with a modern west coast bop dipping its toes in Carnatic music‘s iconism. Find out how this Bay area artist meets Brooklyn and the discovery that unfolds.

Trax of the day new music by Dothead out on Elevtr Trax.

Haich Ber Na – Nowhere Like It

Pollock once said “Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.” I believe artist Haich Ber Na (formerly Haich) embodies this mantra. His new single ‘Nowhere Like It’, surrenders noise to the hand motion giving life to things that aren’t alive so much as surrendering life through the human imagination. His latest is from the EP ‘Everywhere’s Home’.
