Friday, September 21st 2012: Jane Eyre


  • Jane Eyre is a new psych/glam/punk rock band from Brooklyn.  Pitched somewhere between Roxy Music and Dinosaur Jr, they recently completed the recording of their debut album with engineering assistance from Elio DeLuca (Titus Andronicus, Hallelujah the Hills) and mixing from Jake Aron (Jamie Lidell, Yeasayer, Fort Lean).  JANE EYRE’s performances utilize costumes, fake blood, strobe lights, bubble guns, tape loops, projections, and a homemade shrine to R. Buckminster Fuller.”  Listen here.
  • Of Sewing Machines, The Deli Magazine says, “If Brian Eno produced a slightly more Americana version of TV on the Radio, you might get a band sounding something like Sewing Machines.  The group has a penchant for sculpting beautiful and natural soundscapes out of the most synthetic of sources.  Keyboards and drum machines overlay functionally tweaked vocal energy… and still, all of it is catchy as hell.  But if there’s one thing to separate the band from the legions of loop machine tinkerers surrounding Brooklyn, it’s the unexpected humanity and simple fun the band always make sure to include in their experiments.”  Listen here.
  • Brooklyn Trio A Deer A Horse sound like a marriage of early Cat Power and Songs: Ohia.  They make female-fronted bluesy lo-fi sparse indie rock.  Listen here.
