Our Tuesday CMJ wish list
If we had infinite time and energy, these are the shows we'd be hitting tonight:
Yeah, these Brooklynites, pictured above, sound like they've taken the "Rushmore" soundtrack and added a toy drum machine, but we like it.
They're at Union Hall with Rope, Zachary Cale, Man Benu, Woodsy Pride and Prudence Teacup.
Their sound is simple and crisp. Not-quite lo-fi, but nothing fancy.
They're at The Studio at Webster Hall, with Surfer Blood, Dominique Young Unique and Fake Problems.
Another band that updates the Retro-Anglo aesthetic.
They're at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band, River City Extension, Death on Two Wheels and Oh Land.
If you're a fan of modern soul/r&B, you're a fool if you miss this show.
They're at Le Poisson Rouge.
This rap duo is incredibly divisive. But they're getting a lot of positive notice from some pretty cool people.
They're at Pianos with We Are Trees, Franz Nicolay (The Strokes), Fenech-Soler, City Riots and Ma Mentor.
Das Racist also plays Santos Party House on Thursday.
