Mark, Scott, and Nathan make up Heaven For Real, the indie rock trio from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Musically, they work in distinctly Pavementesque non-sequiturs and shout-alongs that tend to to be super catchy and fun. We've seen a couple of these guys before (Crosss and Monomyth) and if we're lucky, perhaps they'll bring even more of their friendly Halifax scene our way... They stopped by Let 'Em In Music in Gowanus, Brooklyn, to play some songs, talk about the band, and address their non-existent connection to the Burpo family and their story, Heaven Is For Real.
DRGN KING began as an experimental studio collaboration between Philadelphia-based songwriter Dominic Angelella and producer Ritz Reynolds. Eventually morphing into a quartet before shifting lineups around, DRGN KING now finds Angelella with a fresh crop of musicians giving life to the project's catchy psych-pop songs. The foursome stopped by Let 'Em In Music in Gowanus, Brooklyn, to share some tunes and talk a bit about the inspiration and history of the music.
Flowers is the London-based trio of Sam, Rachel, and Jordan. Formed in 2012 and booked for a tour supporting The Pains Of Being Pure at Heart before playing their first gig, they've been making brilliant first impressions all along the way with their charmingly fuzzy pop. From solid, minimalist structures to sonic mayhem and captivating vocals, the band has a way of captivating audiences. They stopped by Let Em In Music in Gowanus, Brooklyn, while in town for CMJ for this special session, recorded by engineer Nadim Issa.
