TV Girl, BrotherTiger, Titanics in Albany 10/16


TV Girl, BrotherTiger and Titanics at the Low Beat, everyone’s favorite lil’ dive, on Oct. 16. Here is the FB event, and here is some band info from said event. $10.

TV Girl – TV Girl was formed in 2010 by Brad Petering as an outlet to blend the love of Spector-esque girl-group pop with an emerging interest in hip-hop. On the surface, TV Girl is a sunny, throwback splash of ‘60s French pop and southern California soul. Yet, under that shiny veneer lays a dark heart, beating with sharp wit and cynical alienation, and the music is all the more alluring for it.

Brothertiger – Brothertiger is the electronic solo project of John Jagos, based in Brooklyn, NY. His most recent LP, Out of Touch, was released in December of 2015 to critical acclaim. The album is an attempt to “humanize” electronic music, and to find a balance between the real and the synthetic. Recently, John covered the entirety of Tears for Fears’ Songs From the Big Chair, commissioned by Reimagine Music. He’s currently in the process of recording his next EP.

Titanics – “Despite the resurgence of synthesizer-based bands in recent years, Albany has largely missed the blissed-out genre ‘chillwave’ altogether. Which is ironic, given that what many New York City progenitors of the sound are attempting to romanticize looks a lot like our upstate summers. It’s not surprising, then, that an Albany band— TITANICS —would eventually come along and craft one of the genre’s great records… Lombardo’s vocals are verbed-out to gauzy effect and when Rogers’ guitar enters, it’s like a heaven-beam splitting the clouds.” – Metroland
