Xenia Rubinos
Xenia Rubinos
Magic Trix by Brooklynite Xenia Rubinos might
cause an initial reaction like you are being tasered
(bro). There is little to compare to the sharp, thick
spine of a keyboard sound that shoots at you from the
very first moments. Surprisingly, the record's
aggressive sound is achieved without the use of
guitars. Xenia, together with drummer/sound magician
Marco Buccelli, create a dozen aggressively danceable
songs. An oblique assemblage of uncommon rhythms,
powerhouse vocals and dance-til-you-puke energy
combine to make Magic Trix one of the most exciting
debut albums in years.

Having toured the US nationally including official showcases at
SXSW, Xenia continues touring steadily in support of her
album release on Ba Da Bing Records. Xenia's music has been celebrated by fans and
critics alike with features in MTV, VICE, NPR, Fader, WNYC, The New Yorker.

"One of our favorite artists of the year, truly new and exciting!" - NPR
"Absurdist pop powered by soul-fueled vocals" - VICE
"Somehow she manages to always do weird s**t you weren't ready for, while making it a delight to listen to at the same time!"- MTV
"Standout act, a lo-fi, minimalist sound sometimes likened to Bjork."- Billboard Magazine
Raya Brass Band
Raya Brass Band
Raya Brass Band (pronounced "RYE ah") is the sort of brass band that gleefully mashes up the music of Eastern Europe with funky American dance grooves. Featuring odd meters, unusual scales and a fine helping of gorgeous Balkan and Romany (Gypsy) melodies played on reeds, trumpet, accordion, tuba and drums, Raya Brass Band slakes the thirst for something old and new at the same time, unusual and funky, spiritedly played by some of NYC's finest Balkan folk musicians.
Talibam
Talibam
Keyboardist Matt Mottel and drummer Kevin Shea make up Talibam! They have relentlessly been putting out records since your Dad got his mojo back and the guys show no signs of stopping... Talibam! have been variously described as "punk Coltrane" and "audio terrorism at its most playful". At a time when most culture sticks to conservative niche opportunities, Talibam! is interested in expansion and exploration; They manage to part the sea by not sticking to genre, aesthetic predisposition or the usual norms of what being a 'band' is. More inclined to put on a show that any and all will like, and not be stymied by 'avant' type casting, they have won over both unsuspecting and in the 'know' audiences worldwide.
