Shy Girls and Flamingosis End Tour at Music Hall of Williamsburg

February 8th, 2017

Dan Vidmar grew up in State College, Pa., and played in local rock bands while attending Penn State. Upon graduation, he moved to Portland, Ore., and became interested in what some call PBR&B. Some singles and a pair of EPs under the name Shy Girls led to collaborations and work with the likes of Haim, Odesza, Maxwell and Jagwar Ma. His first full-length, Salt (stream it below), arrived last month. “As soon as Dan Vidmar hits you with those soft falsettos, it’s all over,” says Nylon. “The album is soaking with smooth and sophisticated power ballads supported by a resilient force of production.”

Hailing from Morristown, N.J.—and influenced by the likes of J Dilla, Flying Lotus and vintage funk and disco—producer, beatboxer and DJ Aaron Velasquez makes funky hip-hop beats under the name Flamingosis (the name comes from a freestyle Frisbee move his dad invented). On his most recent release, last year’s Bright Moments (stream it below), he “flawlessy fuses hip-hop and funk,” according to Hype Beast. “The producer’s new album weaves smooth 1970s and 1980s samples into perfect grooves,” per MTV. Come shake your way into the weekend when Shy Girls and Flamingosis close out their tour on Friday night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

Jai Wolf Closes Out Tour with Hometown Show at Terminal 5

December 9th, 2016

Sajeeb Saha has been musical for most of his life, taking up the violin when he was just five and making his own songs as a teenager. He recorded under a variety of names before settling on Jai Wolf, becoming known for remixing the likes of Skrillex and Odesza while still making time do his own thing—namely, making crowd-pleasing melodic, dreamlike electronic music. He recently released the “breathtaking, emotional” EP Kindred Spirits (stream it below). “From start to finish,” says Billboard, “the six-track EP shines like a warm star and slowly expands to fill all the cold space of the universe in your heart. It’s cinematic like synth-heavy ’80s soundtracks.” “Because the songs are dreamlike and grand, I wanted the tour to have the same feeling,” Wolf tells the magazine. “The show is essentially a visual journey that accompanies not just my EP, but my remixes and personal edits. It’s a really surreal experience that I’m ecstatic to show the world.” He’s been showing it on an extensive North American tour that ends at home tomorrow at Terminal 5.

Spend Friday Night with Goldroom and Autograf at Terminal 5

October 5th, 2016

Los Angeles electronic producer and singer-songwriter Josh Legg began making music under the name Goldroom (above, his video for “Lying to You”) five years ago, influenced by the likes of Daft Punk, Bob Dylan, LCD Soundsystem and Nirvana. And following the release of three EPs, his acclaimed debut studio album, West of the West (stream it below), came out just a couple of weeks ago, providing “a romantic and ambitious soundtrack to end your summer on a high note,” according to Vanity Fair. “No matter the listener’s age, the world could use a little more magic—and Goldroom just may be the man to bring it.” He’s currently out on the road in support of the new music with Chicago house trio Autograf (below, doing a live remix of Odesza’s “All We Need”)—Jake Carpenter, Louis Kha and Mikul Win—who pair “glitched vocals, lurking bass lines and live instrumentation from custom-built instruments” and put as much emphasis on the visuals as they do on getting people to have a good time. And if you’re one of those people looking for a good time, don’t miss Goldroom and Autograf at Terminal 5 on Friday night.
