Twin Sister is a super fantastic BK band. They've been around for a little while. Lots of great songs besides this gem at including their debut EP Vampires with Dreaming Kids.

VIDEO: Underwater Peoples Showcase

Alex Bleeker and the Freaks! Lo-fi Neil vibes. Jersey lovin to the max<3.

Family Portrait. Oh man oh man oh man... These dudes are the ultimate in face meltery.

Beach Fossils with the jungle pop heat and psychedelic surf-rock energy!

Ducktails was there. Oh man! The scene leader himself! It was suuuper hypnagogic.

OKAY, so, silly labels aside, this was the best NYC show evz. Those who stuck around and braved heat stroke can/will attest. The highlights were the super sexy sweaty smokin set by Family Portrait, some sweet-ass covers (Fluffy Lumbers on the Cranberries' "Dreams," Liam the Younger on Nirvana's "Territorial Pissings," Real Estate on Weezer's "Sweater Song"), a v-chat sesh with Julian Lynch live on clarinet from UW in Madison... Underwater Peoples has stolen my heart. Stay tuned!

Shooting at Market Hotel is hard, man. I wish the image quality was better. All videos will follow in the coming days. 9 hours of footage... I've been up for days running on just cigarettes and blueberries... pplz bear with me!

"Is that a knife, mate??"

Editing Underwater Peoples showcase footage all night/morning and watching Crocodile Dundee loop on cable television while shit captures and renders.

Tavo Carbone and co. played a sweet show at Cake Shop tonight. Three dudes from Yeasayer were there partying with us cos their drummer also plays drums in Helado Negro, who headlined tonight. Talked to Ahmed from Yeasayer who was pretty sweet. My drunk hussy friend yelled some shit at him. So that was nice, too.

Bunny! Oh no!
New music video for the Walkmen song "On the Water" off of You & Me. It is definitely one of my favorite tracks off that album, which I just heard them perform live and complete with horns section at Summerstage in Central Park, for not the first but second time this summer. Lucky me!

Animal Collective @ Prospect Park 08/14/09

Animal Collective at Prospect Park's Bandshell last night was the best birthday present a gal could ask for. My personal fave part of the show was "Slippi," off of
Here Comes the Indian. (Listen to the live track recorded from their January 09 show at Bowery below.) Other highlights include "Chores," of course a big dance-and-sing-along to "Summertime Clothes," and the super sweet sick sightly seascape set designed by Abby Portner. Sharrrrkkkkk!
