Hit of The Week: Been Stellar ‘Manhattan Youth’

Been Stellar is what you get when you leave the youth alone in a metropolis; they grow up. They make noise. Their songs are formed and lived somewhere on Broadway, on Hester, on 34th, in Union Square, on the bridge, in the gutter, and under your shoe.

Ahead of the release of their self-titled EP on 12th August via So Young Records, New York’s Been Stellar are sharing new single ‘Manhattan Youth’.

Music by Bergman: Geese

Brooklyn band Geese formed when the five members were in high school, practicing, writing and recording in their basement home studio that they dubbed “The Nest.” The band blend a variety of indie rock and post punk influences for a danceable sound that has room for mathy precision and pop hooks. They made their debut, Projector, between their Junior and Senior year, working on it after school and weekends, all before a 10 PM curfew to avoid noise complaints from neighbors. The band are signed to Partisan / Play it Again Sam, the album was mixed by Dan Carey (Squid, black midi, Fontaines D.C.).

Projector includes recent single “Disco” and the new single is “Low Era” which gives off strong, funky Foals vibes.

Divus Julius presents: Sleigh Bells

Sleigh Bells is an American noise pop musical duo based in Brooklyn, New York, formed in 2008. 

Sleigh Bells seemed to be struggling musically and emotionally on their last two outings, 2017’s Jessica Rabbit and 2018 EP Kid Kruschev. After consciously trying to sound different on those efforts, Miller later expressed frustration about the quality of his own songs on Jessica Rabbit. Some liked the band’s more nuanced direction, but it was its lowest-selling LP. On Texis, their fifth album, Sleigh Bells are ready to rock again.
