A Farewell To Zebulon, And An Era For Williamsburg

“This was my first home when I moved to Brooklyn,” said Colin Stetson as he wiped down his face. “Every show from 2004 to 2005 that I played was here. Thank you to Jeff and Joss. I will miss it.” Stetson’s cheeks weren’t wet with tears, but rather the sweat that comes with simulating the… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The real best music video of this week wasn’t an actual video; it was a tantalizing glimpse of one. Joanna Newsom’s forthcoming clip for “Good Intentions Paving Company” looks to be a whimsy-dazed force of nature, and the minute or so that we got to watch was enough to pop eyeballs.

New Holly Miranda – “Waves”

Brooklyn-based Holly Miranda is about to release the Dave Sitek-produced The Magician’s Private Library. You might remember her name from the Jealous Girlfriends. When she opened for the xx in Italy.

The xx @ Covo Club, Bologna 10/17/09

It took them twelve hours to get there, thanks to a broken down tour bus that forced a hellishly long train ride, but the xx eventually made it to Bologna, Italy’s Covo Club, at 11PM, working through their excellent debut xx and a cover of Womack & Womack’s “Teardrops” to a very sold-out crowd.
