The Attic Ends
The Attic Ends
The Attic Ends are a four piece, atmospheric indie-rock band from Bushwick, Brooklyn. Their music has been described as a spine-tingling mix of rock’s primal recklessness with the intricacy of complex indie-pop. The music evokes an expansive darkness, richly-layered with appealing melodies and power pop vocals. The band formed in 2010, and recorded a debut album shortly thereafter. After releasing their debut album in 2010, after only having been a band six months, The Attic Ends felt the need to take time in order to develop their own unique sound. For three years, they wrote, rehearsed and performed the songs for their new album. Then at long last, on July 12th, 2013, they released “The Sky Begins (Part One)”, the first installment of a 2-part album. The sky is the limit for this group of friends, who are committed to creating great music. ”Our music is one of personal reflection, empowerment and ultimately liberation. It documents the highs and lows that come with that type of introspection: at times dark and rumbling, at times euphoric.”
Mother Feather
Mother Feather
"If you're feeling this you're my next victim," front-woman Ann Courtney intones with steely-eyed confidence, assuring the audience of motherfeathers of their submission to the cult.

With their ferocious and enthralling live show, Mother Feather has ignited a wildfire of followers since hitting the New York club scene in 2010.

Epic songs warrant larger-than-life costumes and dance, and a garishly bedazzled Courtney and hype-woman sidekick Lizzie Carena slither, thrust, and high-kick their way through a set that invokes Marc Bolan's cheeky swagger, Bowie's braggadocio, and the howl and shimmy of a "To Bring You My Love"-era PJ Harvey. This is pop cock-rock: anthemic riffs, now-or-never bravado, and tight dance beats bolstered by pop precision and purity of mission. "'Mother Feather' is the muse," says Courtney. "It is the embodiment of your wildest inspiration. Every song is a challenge--to myself and the audience. I want catharsis and I want it now."
Beast Patrol
Beast Patrol
It all started with lighting water on fire. Vanessa Bley (lead vox, guitar), Robert Granata (guitar) and Anthony Marchesi (bass) met in 2011 while performing at a revolutionary anti-fracking (Pedal Power NYC) concert powered by bicycles or "natural ass." In early 2012, Vanessa Bley released her solo EP, a lush, vibrant alt-rock record leading to the band's formation as Beast Patrol. In October 2012 they released their first EP "Fierce & Grateful," a collection of older, rock-pop songs Bley had written. The album received significant buzz leading to Rolling Stone's Band to Watch and a slot at Lollapalooza. After a year of extensive performing and the addition of Jacob Read-Harber on drums last summer, the four-piece settled in and crafted their second record, “Unarm Yourself.” An EP about self inflicted fear and the revelation that it's all inside your head. Each track is a different way of looking at that Beast, which can only be patrolled. The band, having some history now, is honing the vibe and currently recording a full length expected to release this fall.
Black Wing Halo
Black Wing Halo
Like kids rummaging the finest musical dumpster, Black Wing Halo has mended parts and motors, soldered and stitched, to curate a new monster. Their own favorite radio station, Black Wing Halo draws on roots and rhythms, but drives with a distorted punk force. They leave no compact bin unturned. In fact, everything is recycled.
