Sam Cohen
Sam Cohen
2016 was the year that multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Sam Cohen set out on his sweeping solo project with the release of Cool It. Formerly a core member of Apollo Sunshine and the man behind Yellowbirds, Cohen spent the last decade touring and making records, mostly in Brooklyn, treading the tenuous boundaries between the rough­hewn, the psychedelic, and the just­-plain-­timelessly-­cool.

Along the way, he’s lent his guitar playing to the likes of Bob Weir, Norah Jones, Cee­Lo, and label­mate EDJ. Cohen also directs a beloved annual recreation of The Last Waltz that has featured Nels Cline, Cass McCombs, and former bandmate, Twin Shadow, amongst dozens of others. Most recently, he produced Kevin Morby’s ascendant new album, Singing Saw, and was tapped by The National’s Dessner brothers to play guitar on a handful of tracks for their star-studded Day Of The Dead Grateful Dead Compilation.
Scully
Scully
Scully came together as a meeting of minds from the ashes of Oakland California based sunshine rippers The Splinters. As time passed The Splinters disbanded. Fast forwarding a few years later, three of the four members, Caroline Partamian (guitar/vocals), Courtney Gray (guitar/vocals) and Lauren Stern (bass/vocals) reunited in Brooklyn to play together for the first time since 2011.

The "No Sense" EP, the band's Fire Talk debut, recorded by NYC engineer Ben Greenberg & mastered by APTBS & Death by Audio founder Oliver Ackermann sees the band expanding on that California sunshine vibe. Adding the grit & summer trash stench of a New York City Summer, sharpening up and infused with a more potent swagger. Although the band's girl-group sensibilities cannot be denied, Scully's music balances heaviness and pop with nods to Brian Jonestown era Psych, early Punk and '90s grunge. The group had previously released a limited-edition split cassette (with fellow Brooklynites Las Rosas) and a 7" split with La Luz on Famous Class’s LAMC imprint.
Dark Tea
Dark Tea
Dark Tea is the new solo endeavor of Brooklyn quartet Rips’ Gary Canino. His sound is equally folky, atmospheric, catchy, and thoughtful. Check out what Impose said about his single "Providence Sky" featuring Alexandra Savior.
