Anika – “In The City” Video

Earlier this year you may have heard journalist-turned-songstress Anika's cover of Chromatics' "In The City" for her Geoff Barrow produced EP on Stones Throw. It was a fantastic cover, and now it has been given a truly bizarre music video. Depicting a rather unorthodox wedding ceremony, we watch as suitor after suitor line-up to… More »

Anika – “In The City” (Chromatics Cover)

Anika's follows up her 2011 self-titled debut with an eponymous EP and its first single is a cover of Chromatics' "In The City." On it Anika takes her brand of post-punk/no wave and rubs it all over the song. Add a little bit of her throaty, polished Nico cooing and synths that sound gleaned from… More »

ATP NJ 2011 Saturday: Portishead Pack Asbury Park Convention Hall

Jeff Mangum has justifiably been getting the lion's share of the attention surrounding the I'll Be Your Mirror festival; when a reclusive indie god comes out of hiding, it's a big deal. But the weekend also marked a long-awaited return for the festival's curators and headliners. Last night, Portishead stepped onstage in the Conventio… More »

ATP NY 2010: Sleep, Sunn, Skinny Dipping

At this point people know what to expect from Kutscher's: The faded Catskills resort's crumbling walls held together by mold, broken everything (we were forced to do our own DIY toilet plumbing, heard about another one that flushed boiling water), that lost-in-time Tammy Faye Makeup Counter.

10 Years Of ATP In Photos

When the All Tomorrow's Parties festival first launched, the idea of canonizing an iconic album with a track-for-track live performance was still a novel concept. A decade later the album-recreation bit has become another salable gimmick for non-ATP acts trading on nostalgia to line their post-prime coffers, and even ATP has on occasion conferred the… More »
