Monday Threesome Like a Pandora Station but Better
This week’s Monday Threesome focuses on the female trio Vivian Girls and two side projects that stem from the group’s members (and former bandmates). Katy Goodman, now known on the scene as La Sera, and former Vivian Girls drummer Frankie Rose are currently focusing on their successful [READ ON]
Let’s get one thing straight: Punch Brothers (@punchbrothers) are not a bluegrass band. Not strictly speaking, anyway. Their sound is an ingenious conglomeration of rock, blues, funk, jazz and classical; they just happen to have a prodigious [READ ON]
The Antlers, The Shins, Real Estate, St. Lucia, Haim, and Andrew Bird are just a few of the great artists in town this week. The first of many New York City indie music festivals hits with Crossing Brooklyn Ferry at/produced [READ ON]
As a performer, Alex Winston (@iamalexwinston) has a very difficult time staying away from the audience. She started her set at The Knitting Factory on Tuesday night in the crowd, opening with the mysterious, gypsy-tinged “Fire Ant” off her debut full-length King Con. When she finally made her way to the stage, she didn’t take her place in the center of her band, but instead opted to remain right at the lip of the stage, practically on top of the front row. She seems [READ ON]
We fell completely in love with AU’s (@autheband) idiosyncratic beats and surprisingly smooth grooves at SXSW. Seriously, for a band that experiments so wildly and has a base in math-rock, these guys put out some solidly danceable jams. No song makes that more apparent than “OJ”, the newest single off their album Both Lights. The video, which recently [READ ON]
With its title inspired by a Mariah Carey poster and its content rich with the sorrow of a painful break up, Heartbreaker isn’t just a phenomenal first album, its an intricate, intimate dissection of a man’s emotional vulnerability. Ryan Adams’ (@theryanadams) first solo record is an outpouring of heart and soul, leather [READ ON]
As an obsessive sports fan, I spend countless hours projecting the development of young prospects and their potential to become key contributors. For example, Tristan Thompson is a 19 year old rookie for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA. He has tremendous leaping ability, a relentless motor, and an uncanny knack for securing [READ ON]
With the release of their third full-length album, Mia Pharaoh, Miniature Tigers have made a very conscious leap into the world of seductive/sexy, bright indie pop music (see: “Female Doctor”). To match the nature of the album, we brought the band into Manhattan’s The Lighthouse on 162 Bowery for a Buzzsession. It was there that the band performed “Boomerang” and “Afternoons With David Hockney” from Mia Pharaoh (which you can buy here). As always, you can download both songs for free right under the video embeds. Enjoy!
‘Buzzsessions’ is a live session series made by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we travel with a different band to a different part of New York City (or in this case, Westchester, New York) and record sometimes-intimate/sometimes-wild versions of two or three songs which are given away for free.

We’re giving away two pairs of tickets (four tickets total) to see Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom on May 9 with the wonderful Fools Gold. It couldn’t be [READ ON]
Following the release of two EPs (the Sister Wife EP being our 2011 EP of the year), Michigan native turned New Yorker Alex Winston (@iamalexwinston) is back with her debut full-length King Con. Similar to her earlier efforts, this album is tastefully theatrical and undeniably danceable. With a musical style that’s seductive, playful, and full of soul, Winston [READ ON]
