<><> New Beings – Live From The Green House <><>

After recently making the move to Brooklyn, New Beings come back to Northern New Jersey to perform live in our studio as the fifth installment of our Live From The Green House series.

Featuring an unusual combination of instruments, Mickey Sanchez (synthesizer/samples/vocals) and Christian Peslak (guitar/vocals) certainly achieve a big sound.  Their strong vocals and intricate melodies provide the perfect color to the underlying rhythm and sounds coming from Sanchez’s synthesizer.

Watch the video below and snag the free mp3 while you’re at it!

Download of the Month – January

January has arrived and it’s time we give out the featured download of the month!

This month we would like to feature Crossing it out, and Calling it Quits Again by The One Night Stand Band (led by Jim Blass) ~ the one and only ~

Recorded at Good Friend Electric in Brooklyn, this album was released back in September of 2010 but could have been released in 1965.  Jim is one of the best songwriters we know and this record certainly exemplifies that.  The songs have an intimacy where you feel like you are sitting in and listening to the sessions live, as they happen.  Listen to the song called “My Front Door” [conveniently placed below], close your eyes and you’ll know what we mean!

Jim is currently working with us on a new EP which will be released in the near future.  Until then, please enjoy this ear candy as a free album download:::::::::

Songs From Cape Tubbers ::A Happy New Year::

If you don’t know Smallboypants (SBP), you may know some of its family.  It includes members from up-and-coming indie instrumental group Delicate Steve (signed to David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label and recently finished a tour with Ra Ra Riot).  SBP is an artistic collective and record label that has released great music in the past few years.  So we could not be more excited to be teaming up with them, Atlas Records, Dinosaurs in Vietnam, and Vanity Imprint to bring you this collection of cover songs called Songs From Cape Tubbers by Comiano Materdo and N’dona M’buti from the SBP family.

Enjoy and download away!!  Happy New Year~~~~!
