PYYRAMIDS @ MERCURY LOUNGE / 4.10.13
PYYRAMIDS are what you’d listen to locked in your bedroom in the middle of the night, ashtray overflowing with cigarette butts, a nearly empty bottle of whiskey in hand, kicking out a nameless lover. Drea Smith's throaty voice and Tim Nordwind's (of OK Go) pulsating chords and the booming bass and drums all come together in relentless waves of sound.
And that Sade shirt? Fucking killer.

VOTE FOR THE BLUES
The Harmonica Lewinskies, those post-modern-rhythm-and-blues-boys out of Brooklyn, have been nominated for Deli Magazine’s NYC Artist of the Month. They need your vote. They always have whiskey. They know how you like it. This here’s a two way street. Make your decision here.
GIVE YOURSELF OVER TO SLOW WARM DEATH
Want to hear the music your friends are making in basements, playing in dirty bars and infecting the internet with? That’s the mood you’ll find on Slow Warm Death's new, self-titled LP. Every track is bleeding with loneliness, angst, homicidal rage and aching regret, not to say that it's not a fun record, too. There are definitely some mosh-worthy tracks alongside the ones you could kill yourself to. This is the music of terrible acid trips, days spent skipping work to take painkillers and mornings drinking leftover, half-empty 40s.
Stream Slow Warm Death below:
We don’t know about you, but this ice-cold hellish winter landscape NYC has turned into is driving us crazy. It’s almost too cold to go out…almost, we are Culture Whores after all, nothing stops us from having a good time, not even Mother Nature.
However, if you’re not as brave as we are and are currently experiencing severe cabin fever, throw on FIDLAR's new self-titled debut album. It's loud and rough and mega fucking fun, the perfect soundtrack for a beer-soaked winter dance party.
