  9. VersaEmerge singer has a new band (with a member of Trash Talk) and it's goodRead the original story w/Photo

    Aug 25, 2016 | Brooklynvegan

    If you're familiar with Sierra Kay at all, it's probably from VersaEmerge , her Fueled by Ramen-signed band who kinda tried to be Paramore with blacker eyeliner and even less symmetrical haircuts. No part of me thought I'd ever thought I'd be excited about her music, but it's 2016 - the year Justin Bieber and The Chills tie on the Pazz & Jop poll - so just about anything is possible.

    Aug 17, 2016 | Brooklynvegan

    New York's Sam Evian recently signed to the trusty Saddle Creek , and he'll release his debut album Premium for the label on September 30. Contributors to the album include Austin Vaughn , Brian Betancourt , Michael Coleman, Dan Iead , Cassandra Jenkins, Hannah Cohen, Shahzad Ismaily, Eddie Barbash, and Steve Marion . The lead single is "Sleep Easy," which, to get really specific, sounds to me like a cross between Kurt Vile's "Wakin On A Pretty Day" and The Velvet Underground's "Sweet Jane."

    Aug 4, 2016 | Brooklynvegan

    Ohio post-metal outfit Mouth of the Architect have been doing their thing since the early 2000s, churning out some of the better post-NeurISIS music out there as a band that understands that you really have to write songs and, above all, crush to justify all the atmospherics.
