With a striking rock n’ roll gang chemistry and some serious live intensity, the quartet of Stephanie, Stefania Rovera - guitar, Rebecca Rose, and Sunny Veniero have been growing a devoted following in the local scene via fun live showings and several singles and EPs prior to their debut full length.

He was getting pretty bored with the whole music scene thing—until he met the Eastern Medicine Singers.
Jelly Kelly began life as a side project for Monogold frontman Keith Kelly, but quickly grew into its own beast. With a similar musical tendency (the presence of Monogold powerhouse drummer Jared Apuzzo - rototoms and all - probably helps with that) but a different angle that sees Kelly’s vocals opening up for a more full-throated delivery than that falsetto we’ve come to know and love over the years, Jelly Kelly is a young band full of experienced players (Nicolas Dube, Dom Bodo round out the quartet) having fun making weird sounds. The effect is an effortless, cool, catchy blend of post-punky hook-ridden indie rock that doesn’t want to fit neatly in any genre, and we’re here for it. The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to give us a taste of their brand new music. Fresh Paint by Jelly Kelly is available now. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Onesie is the Brooklyn power pop band based around the songwriting of Ben Haberland, along with Zack Fanelli, Lee Madaus, and Andrew Nelson.

The band dropped by Serious Business Music in Brooklyn to shred for us in this session. Umpteenth is available now from Dadstache Records. Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
