NYC’s indie rock goddess KAYE, a.k.a. @charlenekaye, ended 2020 with the release of her debut LP Conscious Control, a brilliant body of work that envelops the reader in a riveting journey of navigating trauma, nostalgia, love, and being human, all the while melting your soul with an electrifying production (by Kaye & Grant Zubritsky) that lingers like the aftertaste of fine whiskey, leaving you buzzed with desire for another round of listening to keep the euphoric feeling as long as possible....

Hi everybody This is Sean here. Gosh, it is smoking hot outside. I put my poor succulent outside to get a little sun, and the thing got cooked like a raisin. On top of that my ivy, who I have been bringing back to life, was mauled by a squirrel. Speaking of things I have been neglecting this blog has not had my full attention and that has been really bumming me out. For the past couple of months, I have been preoccupied with work and unable to deliver quality content for the blog.

With my schedule is starting to open up I finally have more time to devote to TFR. And that is something that makes me really happy. This blog has exposed me to tons of amazing people and I am excited to keep it going.

I also want to take a moment to thank the amazing group of writers that have brought this blog to places I never would have been able to do on my own.

Brooklyn-based songwriter Monica Koh, a.k.a AERI, entices you to walk down a lonesome alley with remnants of her past whispering in your ears. A silken curtain awaits for you at the end of the alley, which you gently pull aside and immediately step into the empty dark dimensional space in which she mourns a past love, floating between matter-of-fact recollection and unrestrained lamentation.

It is indescribable, the feats that our API creators continue to accomplish in becoming the role models they seldom had growing up. Whether it came with succession or failure, their own battles nonetheless caused domino effects of inspiration. The outcome of these effects is an increasingly unified force of unique voices slowly seeping from the crevices of hardened structures into the rich waters of the creative world. Each story weeps, rejoices, and supports in their own shapes, scents, and savor.

This month, we spotlight local NJ/NYC API artists who are paving their own paths instead of choosing one. Thanks for tuning in.

Within the first 16 bars, I heard at their live show at @oourwickedlady @tetchyband swiftly plunged their hands right into the muck where I was buried and pried me right out by the scalp, as they thrashed off every last particle of self-hating filth off my soul.
.
One year later, I had the chance to catch up with Maggie (vocalist & leader guitarist of Tetchy) over the phone, during which she shared her experience with long-term COVID, stories about her parents meeting in a disco band, and her father’s role in her life, and, of course, music and what’s to come next.

Meet @tarravechia A Brooklyn-based artist likes to portray the relationship between popular culture and media, repetition and patterns, and the investigation of luxury goods and the expectations that come along with them through her work. In this interview, we talk about rhinestones, La Croix, and the narratives behind her work. Link: https://bit.ly/3arIvUs

@therealsurfbort exhilarating garage punk has made waves in the Brooklyn music scene and beyond. You might recognize lead singer Dani Miller from her incredible style, recent Tik Tok explorations, or appearance in the Gucci pre-fall campaign in 2019. It’s safe to say Surfbort is a band of many talents. Miller and her bandmates, veterans of the Texas punk scene, joined forces to create Surfbort in 2015 as a reaction to the political chaos of the Trump years. We’re huge fans of their raucous tunes, and we can’t wait for the chance to attend one of their iconic live shows and see crowds surfing again.

I never saw any dope Asian lady rockers when I was a kid, so I try to be that for the younger version of myself—even if nobody cares but me.” Check out our interview with @charlenekaye about representation, an artist’s superpower, and her LP release.

In just 11 songs, NYC’s @beeyotch.nyc covers significant sonic ground on their latest LP release, Right Behind You. From darkwave goth melodies to straight-ahead punk rumbles to nervy post-punk baselines, lead singer Sonja’s bellowing vocals drive through each track with an impressive range, casting each song in a moody neon glow. These songs are steady, intense, and filled with energy. Right, Behind You is an impressive showcase of musical talent and one that will hold the listener tight and not let go…

04/15/2021

@momma.band last record, Two Of Me, chronicles a web of stories and characters in an imagined universe called the Bug House. When Etta Friedman and Allegra Weingarten set out to create their second full-length, out via Danger Collective Records and the follow-up to 2018's Interloper, they weren't physically together to write the songs. The album was conceived in pre-covid times, but Weingarten (in New Orleans) and Friedman (in New York City) were still separated while going to schools in different cities. As a concept album, Two Of Me draws on a cast of carnivalesque characters who find themselves left with nothing to do but grapple with their mortality, which feels like the perfect metaphor for life as we know it.
With sonics nods to Pacific Northwest grunge, Two of Me is a bit of breezy, 90s bliss—perfect for spring days spent lying in the grass. On tracks like "Double Dare," their vocals loop together as they sing, "Buzzing like bodies do/Muddled in masses/Lights out/Bug House" around a driving guitar line and a sweet, hooky chorus. Two Of Me feels like the perfect album for getting through a second spring in quarantine and now, Friedman and Weingarten are working on their third album.
