Live at the Music Hall of Williamsburg

Ra Ra Riot

Year: 2010

Runtime: 00:59:37

Ra Ra Riot are on an alluring career trajectory. The band has gone from small-town favorites to big stage stars, and their recent swing through our city for four nights at both The Bowery Ballroom and The Music Hall of Williamsburg seemed the perfect time to capture their ascent.

Starting off as contemporaries to bands like Vampire Weekend, Ra Ra Riot has been something of a slow burner, choosing to develop and nurture a sound rather than cashing in on one, quick aesthetic. Following the release of their polished, Chris Walla produced sophomore album The Orchard, the band now find themselves at a point of promise. The intricacies of their arrangements rival many of the so-called art-rockers, with heaps more accessibility. While The Orchard dropped hooks for heady, reverberated decorations, the ornate finish provides a complimentary side to a band still building its foundation.

  • Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel

    Caveman

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 26 min

    We weren't shy in our no-holds-barred description of Brooklyn-hailing Caveman's self-titled sophomore LP as a musical opiate that we've boastfully abused. They possess an intoxicating musical progression of sounds that we've become accustomed to in many of our favorite indie-folky-harmonied-rock groups with a simple richness that elicits a sense of sonic meditation equivalent to peers like Grizzly Bear and Local Natives.

    Our New York neighbors joined us down at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel and gave Austin a heavy dosage of their sonic sedative, and we're pleased to bring you the performance in full.

    Kodaline

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 23 min

    The music created by Dublin alternative four-piece Kodaline will hijack a diverse assortment of souls. Their debut EP, released last year, featured four songs, all of which offered their own marque of sincerity stretching from the indie rock simplicity of "Perfect World" to the highest reaches of the arena-suited "All I Want", where frontman Steve Garrigan squeezes hearts with a voice comparable only to that of Coldplay's Chris Martin. Kodaline is a perfect emblem of a band that will undoubtedly explode in the U.S. as their genre melding music is accessible to fans of any palate.

    Baeble captured the Irishmen during their recent trip to the States when they made a profound pit stop at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel down in Austin this March. Their debut full-length studio album, In A Perfect World is due out next month, June 10th, and we're confident this concert capture will be the perfect icebreaker with your new favorite band: Kodaline.

    Mac DeMarco

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 24 min

    Behind Mac DeMarco's torn up jeans, oversized flannel and rambunctious attitude is a magnificent and emotive songwriter. The Canadian artist's debut full-length album, simply called '2', is loaded with jangly guitar rock, which he personally describes as "jizz jazz", as well as simple and relatable lyrics about suburban life.

    During this showcase at the Hype Hotel, the rowdy Canadian was in full swing with random outbursts while chugging beers supplied by audience members. Did we mention his set was at 1PM? But this boisterous behavior was juxtaposed as the gentler Dr. Jekyll side of DeMarco's split personality radiated brilliantly through his music.

    Little Green Cars

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 32 min

    We're not going out on a limb by saying Glassnote Records has an eye for selecting acts that quench our insatiable cravings for folk rock (just ask Marcus Mumford). A recent addition to their roster comes in the form of a group of five kids from Dublin who are collectively known as Little Green Cars. The band is fronted by the unsettled stare of Stevie Appleby and the stoic gaze of Faye O'Leary, who together guide each of the group's intimate harmonizations into their own boistrous sing-a-long ballads.

    With the release of their debut LP, Absolute Zero, coming in April, these young folks took a trip down to Austin, Texas to perform at Conflict of Interest's night at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, where we were armed and ready with a production crew to capture one of our favorite new bands for you to enjoy.

    Tokyo Police Club

    Year: 2010

    Runtime: 29 min

    Since storming on to the scene in '06, TPC have honed in on the kind of proper, pop chops that have given them the inside track on this here music industry of ours. Theirs' are tunes that come packaged with a host of tasty touches hiding inside: acrobatic swirls of guitar, warm and woozy swells of synthesizer, and of course, Dave Monks' endearing, boy next door vocal delivery at the helm of the quartet.

  • Live at McCarren Park

    Deerhunter

    Year: 2008

    Runtime: 47 min

    Oftentimes at live shows, musicians of the indie-rock variety get so caught up in all the strut and swagger that goes along with rock music that they forget to be fun. Deerhunter are not that, as evidenced by their performance here at McCarren Park Pool. On the contrary, front man Bradford Cox is a pretty damn funny guy. And while he may look like a young Thurston Moore without the flowing hair, Deerhunter opt out of your typical art-rock arrogance and instead go for a sonically sound show complete with a driving rhythm section and extra catchy guitar riffs. There's even a nutty vocal spot from Cole Alexander of The Black Lips. Top it off with some psychedelic effects and a pretty rhythm guitarist in cheerleader garb, and you've got yourself a Deerhunter performance that's way too fun to miss out on.

    White Denim

    Year: 2007

    Runtime: 19 min

    The jam indie rock trio White Denim hail from Austin, Texas, where bandmates Josh Block (drums), Steve Terebecki (bass), and James Petralli (guitars, vocals) first set up shop in 2005. All three members were veterans of the Austin scene; Block and Petralli had previously played together in the alt-rock band Parque Torche, while Terebecki was a member of Peach Train. Drawing from a number of punk and garage rock influences, the group fashioned a hard-hitting sound with crunchy guitar riffs and frantic energy.

    Cold War Kids

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 1 hr 16 min

    If there is one thing Cold War Kids have taught us it's never judge a book by its cover - or a band by its name. The Californian indie rockers performed a slick, soulful, grown-up set at Regency Ballroom in support in support of "Dear Miss Lonelyhearts." Dipping into newer tracks such as rollicking electro stomper 'Miracle Mile' and raw renditions of fan favourites like 'We Used To Vacation' and 'Hang Me Up To Dry', the Kids showed us they are more than capable of putting on a phenomenal live performance that can keep everyone in the house rocking until the final minute.

    Beach Fossils

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 17 min

    The release of their self-titled LP in 2010 introduced the world to Beach Fossils' Dick Dale twanged, New Wave inspired surf rock: a frenetic sound, although then unique, has now become quite prevalent in the indie scene. But where this Brooklyn-based four-piece set themselves apart was through their Johnny Rotten-esque turbulent attitutes: a trait that's been upheld in their 2013 sophomore folow-up, Clash the Truth. Led by the melancholic growl of Dustin Payseur, Beach Fossils embody a liveliness and urgency that's shared by a majority of their generation. We witnessed this energy live in Austin at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel. We suggest sticking around til the final minutes to see the extent of Beach Fossils' volatility - where an explosive bout ends with a crippled drum kit.

    "How can such a big sound come from just two people?" This is what you will be asking yourself upon hearing Electric NoNo for the first time. Aside from "delivering a punch harder than Crispin cider" (train wreck'd society), you will find well-crafted albums, giant singable hooks, and a live show that will make you once again believe in the power of rock.

    Erik Blood

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 34 min

    Erik Blood is known across the city as a prolific producer, but he somehow manages to create his own music while nurturing countless other artists. His songs are heavy on synthesizer, but not light on artistry. Reminiscent of 80s greats, Erik Blood’s music is like waking up on a cold morning but going back to bed covered in a cozy blanket.

  • A Session With Foals

    Foals

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 12 min

    Being from the rain-ridden lands of England, Foals are used to a different kind of festival environment: generally speaking, frontman Yannis Philippakis described them as "mud and wellies" ordeals. So we're sure they were quite pleased to travel halfway around the world to the California desert to perform for Coachella's music-hungry crowds. Prior to taking to the stage in Indio, however, Foals made a pit stop at our little poolside bungalow to perform a Festival Fever Session featuring songs off their highly-acclaimed, recent full-length Holy Fire. While you might have already seen the band's in-the-flesh transformation of "My Number" into a slow-burning beaut, we've expanded the session to include the subtle closer "Moon".
