The New Tarot
Inspired by the grooves of David Bowie, Regina Spektor and The Flaming Lips, The New Tarot create songs that Music Times call “one part synth-filled pop, one part thrashing alternative rock, a splash of sisterhood and a sprinkle of the occult.” Diffuser.fm praise the unique sound of the group stating, “The New Tarot flip alternative rock on its head with the powerful stories found in their irresistible songs.” With love from Nylon, Consequence of Sound, Bitch Magazine, Indie Shuffle, BUST, Baeble Music and many more, there’s no signs of slowing down – especially with a full-length album on the way.
The Walker sisters, Monika (vocals/guitar) and Karen (vocals/keyboard), formed their band in the spring of 2014. While performing poetry outside Union Squares’ subway entrance, Monika Walker captivated the attention of a passing man, who would later become the band’s manager. After hearing the brilliance in Monika’s use of verbiage and poetry, and learning she had a sister studying music composition at college, the soon-to-be manager convinced Karen to leave college and pursue a career in music with her sister. Now, a full band supports them: Derek Broomhead (drums), Dave Kahn (bass), Beth Callen (guitar) and David Banker (trombone). The sextet creates archetypes throughout their music and their stories are filled with chaos, harmony and the concept of space within ourselves and the universe.
Apollo's Ghost is a three piece instrumental band from Brooklyn, NY. Ben Curtis on guitar, Ray Mazza on drums, and Dave Sutkin on bass. We've been crafting a pretty diverse spectrum of songs over the past year since the band's inception. The sounds range from pyschedelic blues influenced post rock to anthemic 90's throwbacks and everything in between. Their sound is evolving daily with a new album on the way!
Mahogany incorporates elements of postpunk, psych, disco, classical + electronica into futuristic, architectural, symphonic compositions. Collaborators Andrew Prinz + Jaclyn Slimm interweave vocals, dual 12-string guitars, drum machines, samplers, digital + modular synthesis with live MIDI sequencing, performed + mixed in stereo along with video projections for a cumulative effect known as the ‘hypercube.’
