View Full Version : Good bands from NYC (aka why do I like so many Brooklyn buzz bands?)

I fell in love with The Epochs immediately upon hearing them on Pandora via my Yeasayer radio station (another Brooklyn band I love). Check them out here: http://www.myspace.com/theepochs And for good measure I'll plug Yeasayer in case people missed the first couple of times I did that on this forum: http://www.myspace.com/yeasayer.

I'm probably gonna get the Epochs' album now. Unfortunately, that Hyena song doesn't appear to be on there, and that song kicks major ass.

Also, when I saw Yeasayer back in January the openers were no other than MGMT, who are kinda huge now. I actually thought they sucked live, never having heard of them before. I'm still not a huge fan, but I must confess that "Electric Feel" is one of the most contagious, danceable songs ever. Pretty sweet music video too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtUI5MC9tVM

Are there any other bands from NYC I should check out? This can just be a thread for anyone who wants to throw in good bands from that area.
