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

Artist Updates


Stereogum reviews Happyness at Rough Trade

They play the songs pretty close to how they appear on record, structurally, but with some more insistence (even the fast songs on the record have a kind of sleepy, bleary-eyed vibe to them). That burnt-off haze catches fire again live, with the band turning up the scuzziness in general.

Memphis Flyer

Memphis Flyer interviews Reigning Sound's Greg CartWright

Greg Cartwright has been cranking out underground hits since the early ‘90s. We caught up with Cartwright to find out how he handles double duty between his bands, how he picks his cover songs, and the regional significance of the title of the latest Reigning Sound album, Shattered.


KEXP features Ty Segall's "Feel" as their Song of the Day

When we first received a copy of Manipulator, one of our DJs suggested a new category for rotation: Light, Medium, Heavy, and Ty Segall. That’s how much everyone here at KEXP loves the new record.


Flavorwire premiers Slim Twig's A Hound at the Hem

Believe me when I say A Hound at the Hem is a deeply weird album that draws from rock’s past without retreading much ground. Owen Pallett arranged the strings, and they’re nothing short of stunning — and unnerving.

Drowned In Sound

Drowned in Sound reviews Ultimate Painting's self-titled record

Ultimate Painting is a record that not only bears witness to a duo that understand each other extremely well, but one that brings about further realisation in the listener as to how memorable each of the members are within their own acts.

Now Toronto

Now Toronto interviews Reining Sound's Greg Cartwright

With their latest record, Shattered, the band remains true to Cartwright’s roots: simple melodies and foot-stomping rhythms give shape to tender songs about love and love lost.

Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn Vegan announces Ultimate Painting's CMJ Schedule

Ultimate Painting is here in NYC for CMJ and they’ve got a lot of shows. The band’s debut album is out next week and is a great listen: minimal guitar pop in the VU tradition that’s mellow but not boring.


Slate covers Quintron's Weather Warlock

The Weather Warlock is the latest addition to Quintron’s cache of self-made electronic instruments. For the curious who want to experience it for themselves outputs from the Weather Warlock are streamed live, 24 hours a day on Weather for the Blind.

The Village Voice

Village Voice announces Dirty Tour Story Time with Marnie Stern and Marnie the Dog

We’ve talked to Marnie Stern and Marnie the Dog about the tour stories they’re going to tell tonight at The Creek and Cave in Long Island City. It’s going to be a fun, fun, fun night for the price of zero dollars. Marnie (Stern) will blow minds and Marnie (the Dog) will melt hearts (or maybe vice versa?) starting at 8 p.m.

The New York Times

The New York Times covers Happyness at CMJ

Happyness, a three-man band whose guitarist and bassist swapped instruments a few times, would have sounded at home on 1990’s college radio alongside Pavement, Oasis, the Replacements and Husker Du.

Upstate Live

Upstate Live announces White Fence's show at BSP

White Fence released For the Recently Found Innocent  this past July and have garnered nothing but raves reviews. This latest record sees him re-team with Ty Segall to produce a beautiful set of elaborately crafted songs, harmony vocalizations and trippin’ guitar tones that conjure a fantasy about reality.

Upstate Live

Upstate Live announces King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard's performance at BSP

These psychedelic garage rockers have also been receiving high praise from the music community and as of this month have released seven albums in three years. The prolific seven piece band were brought together through living in a share house and their mutual love for Pavement and Thee Oh Sees.

Upstate Live

Upstate Live announces Juan Wauter's set at BSP

Opening the show is Juan Wauters who released his debut album North American Poetry and dreamed big throughout the album. Juan’s lyrics have continuously looked to take dreams and turn them into reality. With a various cast of musicians and a great light show live, he should be a great start to the show.


Subbacultcha streams Meatbodies' "Disorder"

There’s nothing better to get through the day than this louder-than-hell banger by American psych-garage virtuosos Meatbodies. Watch it burn until it melts in front of your eyes, literally.

SF Weekly

SF Weekly announces Thee Oh Sees at SXSW

Next year’s festival runs from March 13 to 22, but the buildup/lineup reveal is a gradual striptease of sorts, with Round 1 announced today. At first glance, we’re happy to see locals The Stone Foxes, The Dodos, The California Honeydrops, and Thee Oh Sees.

The Guardian

The Guardian covers Dune Rats' CMJ set at Glasslands

Their music is juvenile in structure, full of loud, abrupt, and intelligent surprises. They felt as if they were spiralling out of control but the designs of their songs kept unfolding, revealing new, intricate depths.

Folio Weekly

Folio Weekly reviews OBN III's Third Time to Harm

When OBN IIIs released their third studio album, Third Time to Harm, earlier this year, critics swooned over the Austin, Texas, quintet’s muscular hard-rock histrionics.

Music OMH

Music OMH reviews Ultimate Painting's self-titled record

The hypnotic rhythm section that underpins their theme tune and single is classic VU: delicate, spidery guitaring weaving a melody alongside a driving bass and drums whilst much lighter vocal tones than Lou Reed mastered float above.

Under The Radar

Under the Radar announces Tonstartssbandht's New Zealand shows

Familial duo Tonstartssbandht are heading to New Zealand for three shows in January. Andy and Edwin White, have been carving out a name for themselves of late with their telepathic-sibling jams.

Brooklyn Vegan

Brooklyn Vegan announces Guy Blakeslee's Union Pool show

Guy Blakeslee delivers his first solo album in ten years. Ophelia Slowly delves into a sparse, spooky dreamscape where drum loops, synthesizers, and the occasional acoustic guitar frame his always haunting vocal delivery.

Free Williamsburg

Free Williamsburg puts Dinner on the list of bands to catch at CMJ

Recently signed to Captured Tracks, Denmark’s Anders Rhedin produces lo-fi but lush synth anthems. Fans of John Maus will do well to check him out.


Nola streams Quintron and Miss Pussycat's Sound Machine project, Weather for the Blind

A couple of tracks from Death in Space — the fuzzy, buzzy title track and a second, “Do the Raid” — have premiered online. So has an ongoing stream of the Weather Warlock, a unique synthesizer programmed to translate the effects of natural light, wind and rain into sound.

Express Milwaukee

Express Milwaukee reviews Reigning Sound's Shattered

Though Cartwright has since moved to Asheville, N.C., Memphis, Tenn., is imprinted on his soul, and his latest, Shattered, may be his best pressing to date.


Pitchfork premiers the new Twerps video "Back to You"

Melbourne jangle-pop band Twerps have titled their new LP Range Anxiety. “Back to You”, its first single, has all the inner turmoil the name suggests.

Alt Citizen

Alt Citizen reminds Brooklyn not to miss King Gizzard at CMJ

Just in time for their new album I’m in Your Mind Fuzz, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard will be touting their psychedelic, flute-driven garage rock to what have to be unassuming CMJ audiences.
