As the songs of the summer slow their rotation (so help us if we have to hear ?Blurred Lines? one more time...), it?s safe to say we?re all itching for some fresh tunes. Here are a few up-and-coming New Yorkers to reenergize your ear buds.
If you like Mumford & Sons Banjo lovers, you?ll wanna get in on The Defibulators. The high-energy, seven-piece group just released a new album, Debt?ll Get?em, yesterday and will be celebrating by tearing up Brooklyn Bowl tonight.
If you like Norah Jones For all your breathy, jazzy needs, Julie Kathryn is your girl. She also released a new album, Black Trees, yesterday, and its upbeat yet mellow sound is just what crisp autumn evenings call for. Catch her live at Rockwood Music Hall on September 6.
If you like ?90s Red Hot Chili Peppers Before you get all judgey, here us out. The guys and girl of Watermelon are seriously fun. Two chords into ?YOWWYCH,? we were hooked. Download the group?s recent album, Sleepover, and thank us after your dance party.
