RATHBORNE (Record Release Party!)
RATHBORNE (Record Release Party!)
Rathborne moved to New York from the deep woods & shallow waters of Brunswick, Maine, staying on his brother’s couch deep inside the upper burroughs, before moving into the darkness of the Charlie Pineapple Theater Company on North 8th, an abandoned theater loft in Brooklyn - he’s since left for higher ground
Los Encantados
Los Encantados
Los Encantados are all about summer and love, in the short-haired, 50's, faux-California, surfy way that leads to spiked milkshakes and jerky bodyshakes. They listen to T. Rex, Television and the Beach Boys, and you can kind of tell. Their album, The Same Damned Soul, is a true story and took place over the summer of 2010 in France and New York and then France again. Most of it was written on the F train to Coney Island and on the C train to Rockaway during the summer of 2011. It was recorded in Bushwick, until the building that housed the Encantado recording studio was condemned. After that, well...that's another story for another time. It's been a really fun roller coaster of a subway journey to get this to tape.

The six-piece from Brooklyn released the first chapter of their summer love trilogy, The Same Damned Soul, on 3/31/12. It is 1/3 of your soundtrack to summer; the other 2/3rds will be released throughout the summer of 2012. Keep your ear to the ground.
New Myths
New Myths weave electronic elements with fuzzy guitars and fantastical haunting melody lines. This 3 - piece new wave/indie- rock outfit is the culmination of drummer Rosie Glassman, guitarist Britney Boras and bassist Marina Ross.
Since having met in music school, grade school, and the NYC music scene, New Myths recently released their debut self-titled EP
The Highway
The Highway
The New York-based psychedelic rock band The Highway came into being nearly a decade ago. Daniel Tortoledo (vocals and bass), Ysaac Cohen (guitar), Victor Cruz (guitar/percussion/vocals) and Ted MacInnes (drums/vocals) connected over shared influences, both earthly and intangible: Philosophy. Perspective. The vastness of outer space. Mysticism. Hitchcock’s psychological mindfucks. Grassy fields and dense forests. Color. The expansiveness of the United States.

The result of their collaboration is a singular sound—one that has the ability to completely take you over.

Within the cacophonous, but highly orchestrated, rock trances is a writing process steeped in tradition. The Highway adheres to the mantra of less is more, and there is order here in the chaos of sound. Starting with simple chords, the band creates a spacious structure in which to elaborate.

Adding psychedelic arrangements and soulful lyrics (sung with fervor by Daniel Tortoledo) they infect with potent nostalgia. They elicit a feeling of having discovered something entirely new. Their songs ebb and flow, often building to a riot—a well-crafted wall of sound, punctuated by the tweaked out echoes of dreams and philosophical spoken lyrics.

In September 2010, The Highway released their first album: Forest People. And after a month-long winter tour of the US in 2012, The Highway returned home with the basis for their sophomore album. The band is currently laying down their new tracks at a Converse-sponsored studio in Brooklyn NY.
