The best kept secret in music


"Song of the Week"

This band has the potential to do super cool things over the next year because of their ability to maintain the element of surprise within an accessible alt-rock-country style. Also, within this genre, they're unmistakably a natural musical product, not a re-write. Lyrics are thoughtfully understandable in meaning and intent, unpretentiously individual in a way that you know the author is sincere that a "book on a counter...makes you think about love in a different way" is one that he's truly read.


2008 - 'basement band'

Feeling a bit camera shy


basement band is a folk-rock quartet based out of brooklyn, ny. They play original, harmony-driven music that ranges from up-tempo bluegrass to rock to mellow, acoustic ballads. Their sound has been likened to “Harvest-era” Neil Young or Wilco but the band strives to stand out in the quickly developing folk-rock revival.

Since solidifying their lineup mid 2005, the band has developed an amazingly gracious following in the New York City and Brooklyn areas playing to packed rooms at NYC’s The Living Room and Pianos. The band has also spent many of its weekends playing venues around the Northeast including: Caffe Lena (Saratoga, NY), Red Square (Albany, NY), The Middle East (Boston, MA), and Nectar’s (Burlington, VT).

Their first full-length disc will be released in May 2008.
