MS MR, comprised of Lizzy Plapinger as the MS, and Max Hershenow as her MR, recently their debut EP Candy Bar Creep Show this October and have been killing it ever since. I just saw them live at Music Hall of Williamsburg when they opened for Haim, and I have got to say that Haim couldn’t have picked a better opener. Their beats were smooth and compelling and Plapinger’s precise vocality translates well on stage. MS MR are playing at The Mercury Lounge on January 17th, tickets go on sale at noon.
LOVESKILLS is a one-man songwriting and producing machine. Richard Spitzer utilizes synth, low frequency bass, and a mix of melodies to create his hypnotizing sound. LOVESKILLS debut EP, Multiplicity is set to be released on February 14th. Check out his debut song, “Turbulence” and grab tickets for his Mercury Lounge show on February 15th at noon today.
The Neighbourhood are one of my “it” bands of the moment. I’ve seen these guys live twice before and they never disappoint. They released their debut EP I’m Sorry… late this year and have been slowly growing their fan base. Catch their latest single “A Little Death” and buy your tickets to their Mercury Lounge show on January 17th today at noon.
The Weeks, indie rockers from Mississippi, are hitting up The Mercury Lounge on January 20th and you can get tickets at noon! The Weeks are a cool mix of southern rock and alternative, which is showcased well in their latest single “The House We Grew Up In“. They re-released their latest EP Gutter Gaunt Gangster on September 25th, and are prepping to release their second full length album in the spring of 2013.
If the world ends today, it’s been nice knowing you guys. If not…I’ll see you next Wednesday.
