Panache announces ALL CMJ Events and Set Times

Congrats to Jonathan Toubin Village Voice's Readers Choice BEST DJ IN NEW YORK to New York Night Train’s DJ Jonathan Toubin who was named BEST DJ IN NY by the VILLAGE VOICE. “With most DJs doing their best Steve Aoki impressions in the club, DJ Jonathan Toubin’s “New York Night Train” has felt more refreshing than ever. At his Home Sweet Home residency (beginning at 10:30 p.m. every Friday), Toubin and a slew of special guests spin 45s of the best and most obscure soul and early rock ‘n’ roll. You can do the mashed potato or you can do the twist in this underground cave of a club, where you’ll be surrounded by taxidermy and some serious fans of old-school tunes, or you can catch him at Brooklyn Bowl one Saturday out of every month. Who doesn’t want Sam Cooke to soundtrack their night out?” - VILLAGE VOICE

Happyness- A Whole New Shape


Pitchfork reviews Juan Wauters' "She Might Get Shot"

“She Might Get Shot” is a song that could’ve been made pretty much any year. Its acoustic guitar, piano, and minimal percussion could’ve been found on a Rodriguez record; its wry humor is analogous to Jens Lekman’s.

Clash Magazine

Austin Chronicle

Austin Chronicle reviews The Zoltars new LP, out 2.24

Eschewing the sunless melancholy of 2013’s outstanding Walking Through the Dark, garage psych eggheads the Zoltars mine carefree nuggets on their third LP. Blue-ribbon songwriter Jared Zoltar adopts the persona of a peaceful acid casualty on Sixties opener “We Missed Out,” his plainspoken treble-talk penetrating three perfect chords and a primitive pounding that blurs lines between oldies-garage and post-punk.

CMJ previews B-side to upcoming Heaters 7"

Grand Rapids, MI, fuzz-rock trio Heaters have a new 7-inch single, Mean Green/Levitate Thigh, out April 28 on Beyond Beyond Is Beyond. The B-side starts in a surf/spy flick vein that soon enough vibrates out into speedy psych-punk riffing then back under the waves. And as you’ll see in the new appropriately thighs-a-flyin’ video for the song, Fred Astaire has no trouble dancing to it all.
