Get Carried Away Fest features emerging NYC bands on a yacht on 08.04

Scheduled for August 4th from 4pm to midnight, the third edition of the Get Carried Away Music Festival this year features ten bands, mostly from the NYC area. On the bill also drinks, food and cool Brooklyn wares, all on board of the historic Timeless yacht during the perfect time of year to enjoy those East River breezes to cool off the hot August nights. The festival features mostly female-fronted groups, which is refreshing and also fair, since women have been producing some of the best indie music in recent times.

There's still room for five more artists which will be selected through a special Battle of the Bands contest taking place on June 2 at Kingsland Bar in Greenpoint, 6pm-midnight. Band/artist submissions can be emailed to kelly.isaacs@getcarriedawaymusic.com.

The festival is now offering discount tickets at $65 each to the first 100 festival goers. Tickets are available here and on the festival website. Check out a playlist of the local bands playing this event, streaming below! - Meghan Rose

Debut Gladie EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Everyone Is Talking About You is the debut EP from Gladie. Encapsulating a range of earnest emotion, there’s an inviting, open door that reveals the deeply personal, while hitting universally home. You'll find grains of hope within grounds of despair, as well as enriching lessons to be learned from mistakes made. Catch the band this Wednesday, May 23 at Everybody Hits with Doll Baby, Bat Boy, and Big Nothing!

   

Some Professional Help releases glittering self-titled EP & plays Uptown Nightclub (5.24)

Every now and again, a special kind of artist falls onto our radar—one that is able to give nods to music history, while also successfully innovating and pushing boundaries. One such artist is Scott Alexander, whose new project Some Professional Help is ambitious to say the least. Backed by a rotating 16-person band, Alexander leads the eclectic soundscape with his knowledge of orchestral music (if you think that there isn’t enough bassoon in pop music, then you and Alexander may be cut from the same cloth.) The self-titled debut EP is a glittering, baroque take on orchestral pop. With vocals akin to that of Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and arrangements that whisper influences from Sufjan Stevens, this project shines as a standout singer-songwriter debut. Some Professional Help will be performing in Oakland at Uptown Nightclub on May 24. - Lilly Milman
