We were on hand to capture Deptford Goth’s (nee Daniel Woodhouse) first North American performance, which took place last month at Mercury Lounge. Dude is soft-spoken, but that doesn’t mean his words (both spoken and sung) don’t carry weight. In fact, quite the opposite. When he opens his mouth, people tend to listen. Like they say, still water runs deep. So does Deptford Goth’s talent and I suggest you see him perform if he visits your town. He won’t be playing rooms this small for much longer.
Good music for a Friday. Video directed by Aaronisnotcool.
It’s time to stop evaluating rap releases based on how much they remind us of the 90s. The “Golden Era” is gone and it ain’t coming back. Unless you’re a serious nostalgist, or never really bought into the whole “WinAmp” thing, you’re probably not popping the new Cappadonna into your Aiwa…
Brooklyn-based Suā recently stopped by the MXD SGNLS studios to chat about their new EP, Twins, and to perform “Welcome” and “Beach 90,” two tracks from the record. The performance above was purely acoustic and while the reverb of their studio recordings is washed away, the beauty of the compositions remain, highlighted by the sultry vocals of lead-singer Suki Kwan. Enjoy.
We’re big fans of Nashville’s Those Darlins. That much has already been said. So we captured some footage from their show at Mercury Lounge earlier this month and cut together a piece set to “Optimist,” a rowdy track from the band’s new album Blur The Line. The record is out now on Oh Wow Dang, Those Darlins’ own label. Do yourself a favor: listen to it, and see the band perform in your town. They’re on tour now.
Another nice piece from Blank on Black/PBS Digital Studios.
I’m hearing some Dire Straits in here and I’m perfectly cool with it. But seriously peep Darkside’s new record Psychic. Good music.
