Video: Bryan Scary “Ballroom Kid” (Live at BreakThru Radio)

Brooklyn-based psychedelic pop musician Bryan Scary will release his third LP Daffy’s Elixir on NYC’s Paper Garden Records on April 24th. The album is a veritable mind-fuck that spans genres, breaks rules and tests its listeners unlike any release in recent memory. Those may sound like knocks, but I actually dig this release. The playful, operatic approach is theatrical and flamboyant in ways that immediately call to mind Queen’s most ambitious material. I played the hell out of Queen’s Greatest Hits as a kid, so Daffy’s Elixir serves as the welcome return of a forgotten friend. A video from Scary’s recent performance at BreakThru Radio is featured below. Scary is backed by a sizable cast of characters that his bold sound demands.  Watch their performance of “Ballroom Kid” here:

Fresh Track: Conveyor “Mukraker”

I’m a big fan of layered sounds. The best music is often like the best meals: simple, quality ingredients are paired with a few essential flavors to allow the food’s most redeeming qualities to shine. This is the type of recipe that Brooklyn band Conveyor serves up on a regular basis. They dropped their latest single “Mukraker” this week. The band reminds me of Portland’s Typhoon, with a little more minimalism. It takes skill to break a song down to its core and then rebuild with only the most important pieces. Too often bands wind up masking that essential melody beneath sounds that distract rather than support. Stream “Mukraker” below, and keep your eyes peeled for their full length debut later this year.
