LOVELIKEFIRE, DJINN TOYS Wow Piano's

-LoveLikeFire

It came as a total surprise to me that LoveLikeFire are a really great band, both live and on their recent ep An Ocean in the Air. A noise pop band from my hometown of San Francisco, Love Like Fire features the amazing presence of multi-instrumentalist/lead singer Ann Yu. How did I never know about these guys when I actually lived in SF?

LoveLikeFire will return to NYC with a CMJ date on Friday, October 24th at Ace of Clubs.

You can get the highly recommended album here.

-Djinn Toys

The real reason I discovered Love Like Fire is because the new Bushwick band Djinn Toys were opening. Somber, but melodic, Djinn Toys performed a collection of fleshed-out and well-focused tracks, even though they have only been a band for a couple of months. Djinn Toys attempt to tread waters last paved by the Kurt Cobain era of minimalist, straight up rock tracks (no synths here!), yet make the genre seem fresh and cohesive with the times.

Djinn Toys have a few Brooklyn dates in the coming weeks:

Oct. 13 - Trash Bar, Brooklyn
Oct. 16 - Vanishing Point, Brooklyn
Oct. 29 - Glasslands, Brooklyn
