The Ludlow Thieves
The Ludlow Thieves
When Danny Musengo was the lone survivor of a car accident it gave him a fresh outlook on life. He decided to leave Iowa behind in favor of New York City, where he planned to dedicate himself to music—he’d grown up singing gospel songs in church and knew that music was where his heart was. Musengo met producer and guitarist Dan Teicher, and the two began crafting lush soundscapes. The six-piece the Ludlow Thieves (above, performing “All the Money”) was born in 2012, now including Laura Martin, Isamu Mcgregor, Amando Lo and Bruno Esrubilsky. They make big music touching on roots, rock, folk and gospel (or as they describe it, “the energy of roaring lions and lovemaking llamas channeled through a gospel singer from Iowa”). And despite the fact that they still remain unsigned, the Ludlow Thieves continue to rise, having headlined The Bowery Ballroom this summer and scoring an Adidas World Cup commercial with Kanye West. Catch them Dec. 5th, headlining Rough Trade in Brooklyn for the first time.
Tam Lim
Tam Lim
In 2005, New York singer-songwriter Paul Weinfield formed Tam Lin, whose name comes from a Scottish ballad about a man taken in by the Queen of the Fairies. The name reflects Weinfield’s interests in magic and mythology, which together with his Leonard Cohen-esque flair for confessional songwriting form the heart of his unique folk-rock storytelling style, which No Depression Magazine described as “unafraid to push musical boundaries.” Tam Lin has released five full-length albums to date: Begin Again (2009), In the Twilight (2008), Floating World (2006), Garden in Flames (2011) and Medicine for a Ghost (2013). Known for poetic narratives, elegant melodies, and sonic landscapes, Tam Lin’s sound has been praised by Jezebel Music as “a rare, successful, genuine-sounding blend of old and new sounds.”
Davenport Cabinet
Davenport Cabinet
Named after a 19th century magic trick invented by the pre-civil war era magicians the Davenport Brothers, Davenport Cabinet was created by Travis Stever in 2007 as a solo venture outside of playing guitar for Coheed and Cambria. In 2008 the full length LP "Nostalgia in Stereo" (Equal Vision Records) was released to excellent reviews. It was a very loose and raw album with hints of music to come. Still, due to Coheed’s continued success, “The Cabinet" remained mostly a ‘side project’ for the time being.

In 2009 Stever began writing for a new record and brought in his cousin, Tyler Klose, a singer-songwriter and highly proficient guitar player. Klose was part of a Sussex County, NJ band called Breathing Walls and as a solo act had opened for well known acts like Railroad Earth

He along with Stever plays guitar and sings. Together they created the full length album "Our Machine," released January 15th 2013 on Evil Ink Records. In May of that year Tom Farkas (Bass) and Michael Robert Hickey (Drums) joined Davenport Cabinet as full-time members. The quartet quickly completed an EP titled "Risks in Magic," released November 13th 2013, and plan a new album for fall 2014.
The Bodega Tallboys
The Bodega Tallboys
A gang of barnstormers from New York City and Brooklyn, The Tallboys have been at it for only a year but their sound is the timeless kind, born of lost highways and deep woods. Collectors of roughhewn country and soul tunes, rambling ballads, original barnyard stompers, and classics turned on their heads, this six-piece heart-on-its-sleeve outfit of guitars, mandolin, banjo, harp, sax, and percussion, plays musical chairs every time they take the stage. They swap instruments, trade off vocals, and always deliver a high-octane performance of their infectious brand of urban Americana.
