I have pretty much loved everything that Samatha Urbani has been a part of, most notably her stint as the front woman for Brooklyn party band Friends and her collaborations with Blood Orange (Dev Hynes). Earlier this year she stepped out on her own with an excellent debut single “1-2-3-4”. Now she follows that up with “U Know I Know”, a smooth summer jam that blends sultry vocals and harmonies with a mid-tempo tropical vibe and a splash of 80’s nostalgia.
Experimental post-rock band Sunset Images recently relocated to Brooklyn by way of Mexico City and they come prepared with the compelling debut ep Hajime. Listen to the scorching epic title track below.
Sleepercub are a musical project out of Ventura, California that produce very beautiful ambient dream pop. They have just released their first ep, fittingly titled EP 1, which was produced by Warren Hildebrand of Foxes In Fiction. Stream the single “Most Of Me” below, then grab the whole gorgeous ep here.
Out In The Streets – 2 Days of Music Art and Food – returns to the historic Vander Ende-Onderdonk House for the third consecutive year August 1-2, 2015.

This year’s festival will host a memorable lineup that will highlight some of the best new, local acts in Brooklyn! The 2015 lineup will be announced soon!
