Get to know some of the artists playing our Out In The Streets Music Festival this Saturday at Brooklyn Fire Proof. Here are just a handful of the acts you can expect to see.
“Psychobuildings is Brooklyn resident Peter LaBier. Unlike so many of Brooklyn’s residents, Peter’s not flannel-clad, unfriendly or a witch. In truth, his music seems to have more in common with California’s oddball set (Ariel Pink, Nite Jewel, The Samps, etc.)…”
“So this is basically a dance song about the deep-rooted fears we all have, but in typical Psychobuilings fashion, that fear is blown out into stuttering drum machines, awkward/cool white dude dance moves and hushed Arthur Russell-style vocals.”
“With new single “I Am You,” they show a penchant for sweet and synthy lo-fi pop that would be right at home on the soundtrack of an 80’s buddy cop movie. I realize I’ve used a similar comparison before, but it always surprises me how so much DIY music attempts to timeshift my millennial generation brain to a crowded movie theater on the day “Pretty in Pink” opened. It’s cool though, we seem to really enjoy this idea, and COOLRUNNINGS deliver.”
“I’d wager that the dudes in Mirror Mirror really dig on Barrett-era Pink Floyd. Their tunes are melodiously parochial and texturally adventurous, a hodgepodge of vibe and technique that owes a lot to the late, Aspergers-afflicted singer and his band’s wayward excursions into pop music. But Mirror Mirror are self-aware cherubs amidst Brooklyn’s recent psych renaissance…”
