Catch Real Estate Live at Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

October 1st, 2014

Alex Bleeker (bass), Martin Courtney (vocals and guitar) and Matt Mondanile (guitar) grew up together in Ridgewood, N.J. “We all went to high school together. And we’ve been playing together forever,” says frontman and former Titus Andronicus member Courtney. So they logically formed a band, Real Estate, and were eventually joined by Jonah Mauer (keys) and Jackson Pollis (drums). Over the course of two equally well-received spare, lo-fi albums, a self-titled debut (stream it below) in 2009 and 2011’s Days (stream it below), they’ve made lush, rolling soundscapes of dreamy psychedelic surf rock you could easily get lost in. But on their third album, last spring’s Atlas (stream it below), Real Estate (above, playing “Criminal”) have gone a bit mellower and more nuanced. Pitchfork says the band’s sound hasn’t changed, but their mood has: “The result is at once their most forlorn album and their most beautiful.” Find out for yourself tomorrow at Terminal 5.

Tycho Closes American Tour Tomorrow at Terminal 5

September 30th, 2014

Scott Hansen is a man of many talents—and of several names. Under the moniker ISO50, he’s a graphic designer well known for his pastoral, sunny style. This serves him well, providing eye-opening backdrops when, using synths and sampled live instrumentation, he makes dreamy music as Tycho. “I want the music to be a soundtrack to a visual experience where both the audio and the visual aspects of the live show are equally important to the audience,” he says. The San Francisco–based producer and musician uses swirling melodies along with halting beats and sampled vocals to paint a rolling sonic picture. His second full-length, 2011’s Dive (stream it below), earned Tycho (above, performing “Montana” on KCRW FM’s Morning Becomes Eclectic) comparisons to M83 and Neon Indian. On Hansen’s third album, Awake (stream it below), out earlier this year, he employs live musicians. Per Filter, “Silky, swirly synths still abound on Awake, but the groove of live bass, guitar and drums advance Tycho’s sound and put the songs right into the proverbial pocket. Shit, it actually sounds like these dudes are having fun.” Have fun yourself when Tycho closes out the American leg of his tour tonight at Termial 5.

Sylvan Esso’s Potent Chemistry on Display at Rough Trade NYC

September 12th, 2014

Sylvan Esso – Rough Trade NYC – September 11, 2014

Sylvan Esso – Rough Trade NYC – September 11, 2014
Last night’s Sylvan Esso show at Rough Trade NYC, alongside Landlady, sold out at lightning speed when tickets went on sale months ago. Adventurous pop rockers Landlady took the stage first and delighted the audience with their sprightly music. Six men strong, they commandeered the stage and held everyone in their thrall as they launched into a glittering set of percussive, psychedelic songs. Lead singer Adam Schatz propelled the performance with his soulful crooning and no-holds-barred dancing. Songs like “Maria” and “Above My Ground,” from the band’s sophomore album, Upright Behavior, began ever so quietly and culminated thunderously. Schatz provided plenty of entertaining and insightful banter throughout and had no trouble engaging the crowd in sing-alongs.

Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso took the stage next, Meath in six-inch platform sneakers and Sanborn with his fingers poised to take command of his soundboard. The sultry chords and audacious beats of “Hey Mami” launched their set. Sylvan Esso’s music is simultaneously doe-eyed and wolfish—it’s a tantalizing tangle of abstract lyrics and sly electronica. The duo’s chemistry is some of the most potent stuff around these days. They faced off throughout the set, feeding off each other’s energy and charging the air with fervor. Heavy reverb on Meath’s vocals made for an especially heady effect. The two played some artful cover songs during their encore, but it was the originals from their self-titled debut album that mesmerized most. These two bands are the quintessence of enchanting, and their magic won’t be fading any time soon. —Schuyler Rooth

Savoy Bring the Party and the Lasers to Terminal 5 on Saturday

September 11th, 2014

Multi-instrumentalists and producers Ben Eberdt, Gray Smith and Michael Kelly (who plays drums at their live shows) have cherry-picked elements from a variety of electronic-music genres to create their own unique, crowd-moving, party-starting sound. Thanks to their high-energy live performances, complete with laser light shows, Savoy burst into the mainstream on the festival circuit two summers ago. And they haven’t let up ever since. The Brooklyn-based trio put out their second studio full-length, Self Predator (stream it below), earlier this year, and they’ve been out on the road supporting it in style. But this weekend they stay local when they play Terminal 5 on Saturday night. Pretty Lights and Alex English open the show.

Armed with a New Album, Trampled by Turtles Play Terminal 5

September 11th, 2014

Dave Simonett (vocals and gutar), Erik Berry (mandolin), Dave Carroll (banjo and vocals), Tim Saxhaug (bass and vocals) and Ryan Young (fiddle and vocals) have been putting a modern, thrashing, turned-up twist on bluegrass music, as Trampled by Turtles, for more than a decade. And like the Avett Brothers and Mumford & Sons, this Duluth, Minn., five-piece employs folkie and Americana instruments—plus layered harmonies—to get their point across, sometimes doing it a little bit louder. They released their first album, Songs from a Ghost Town (stream it below), in 2004, and Trampled by Turtles (above, playing “Are You Behind the Shining Star” on Late Show with David Letterman) have been steadily playing high-energy live shows ever since. Their seventh LP, Wild Animals (stream it below), out this past July, finds them in as fine form as ever. AllMusic says, “On their seventh long-player, Duluth’s acoustic troubadours Trampled by Turtles continue to push the outer limits of folk and bluegrass playing light against darkness, delivering one of their most thoughtful and downtempo albums to date.” Currently crisscrossing North America, their tour brings them to Terminal 5 tomorrow night.

See Juicy J Performing Live at Terminal 5 Tomorrow Night

July 21st, 2014

Jordan Houston, who writes, raps and produces as Juicy J, is most well known as one of the founding members of the Academy Award–winning hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia. But he’s been increasingly making a name for himself as a solo artist thanks to collaborations with the likes of Katy Perry and Usher and his 2012 strip-club friendly “Bandz a Make Her Dance” with Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. His third solo album, Stay Trippy (stream it below), arrived last year. AllMusic proclaimed it “a pimp party of the highest order.” But despite being so closely associated with partying—he’s out on the road on his Never Sober tour—and strip clubs, Juicy J (above, doing “Bounce It” live on The Aresenio Hall Show) isn’t just about having a good time: “I’ve got a lot of songs about having fun and partying, but it’s a lot of work. Sometimes, I make 50 songs and pick out the best 10. I’ve been in the studio all day, all night, making the beat, writing the raps. You never know what’s gonna be a hit,” he tells Time Out New York. See him play Terminal 5 tomorrow night. Juicy J’s older brother, Memphis rapper Project Pat, opens the show.
