Steady Sun
Dylan Nowik's five-piece brainchild is growing up. The band is poised to release their second full-length LP this summer, and will be supporting the release with a run of shows across Brooklyn. Flora's eleven tracks are the result of two weeks' time occupied exclusively recording last summer in an Upstate New York Barn, and seven months of creative deliberation in post. Says keyboardist Slack Barrett, "Dylan is so meticulous, you know, with mixing and final touches...but the result is essential to our sound, and I see the time he spends as a well-practiced ritual."

Recording Upstate offered Nowik some new opportunities, and the change in scenery encouraged ingenuity. Their debut album, Good Evening, released in September 2013, was recorded at Rose Studios in Brooklyn, and is described as being "folky, baroque pop" whereas Nowik sees Flora as the result of a fascination with rhythm, textures and soundscapes. There are sonic eccentricities throughout the album, such as recordings of bugs in Vermont, and a massacred crash cymbal. Says Nowik, "Andrew wanted a different cymbal on 'Waiting', and nothing was working, so he and I went from the barn out to the street at like 2pm and just started thrashing this thing on the road with hammers, making a big racket. It fractured though, and we used it".

Nowik rarely left the easel on which his artwork was taking shape; over the course of two weeks, other members made their way in and out from the city and laid down parts. The result is a lush patchwork of sound, complete with DD-7 delay-scapes, dictaphone recordings of conversation, fuzzed out harmonies and smooth yet enormous transitions that pull you in like a current as it gets closer to a waterfall. The mist rising up from that waterfall is Flora: airy and beautiful, the intangible result of a journey over the edge of an everlasting dance between delicacy and force.

Steady Sun is Dylan Nowik, Andrew Emgee, Slack Barrett, Danny Rose, and Peter Victor-Gasper. They are pioneering a new genre, coined by Nowik as "Jive Daydream", and they are looking forward to sharing it with you.
Dizzy Juice - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Dizzy Juice
Dizzy Juice! RHCP grins benevolently within these ambly, guitar-forward, easy-living compositions. Clean, warbly guitar lines replete with reverb/echo/delay give way to Frusciantefied, waily solos in the refrains (like him, their tasteful pedalwork bespeaks long sessions of tone practice). Classic self-assuredness defines the rhythm section: Nick Mason's fat, thick timbre married to punchy, wholesomely thudding bass, a tight unit wearing the group's trademark triple-meter grooves like your favorite slippers. Over all this, vocals rooted in slackercore (though possessed of sufficient grit to engage the dynamo when the occasion calls) swoop and slur through wry turns of lyric, buoyed every so often by sugary swells of harmony in the middle distance.
Their debut full-length, "The Fragile Unplanned Vibe," just came out! Hear it in its entirety at (headphones!), then get whiskey drunk and footstomp with us.
Your Rhythm Mix - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Your Rhythm Mix
Your Rhythm Mix (say it fast) is a Comedy Eurythmics Tribute band playing 80's New Wave, Eurythmics (obviously), plus other fun.

Back in the 80's, their look and songs stolen by the Eurythmics, Frannie Bennocks and Stewart Davies fled to the US. Thirty years later, Frannie and Stewart play covers for money. They have played the after-party for the B-52s at the Capitol Theatre, appeared numerous times at Arlene's Grocery, and return to The Ice Palace on Fire Island this summer. With their star finally on the rise, maybe they can move out of Stewart's brother's basement.
Those Manic Seas - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Those Manic Seas
Those Manic Seas is a 'four' piece band that attempts to push the boundaries of what a rock band should be. The band hails from Richmond, Virginia and combines elements of post-rock and shoegaze in order to create unique songs that leave the entire audience dancing. The band consists of drummer Daniel Medley,guitarist Drew Rollo, bassist Justin Jones and a not so typical singer. “Our ‘lead singer’ is not a real person, which makes an interesting show,” says member Daniel Medley. “And if the singer doesn’t make sense, coming to our show will clear it all up. We really are a live band.”
