Off the heels of New York Magazine’s Brooklyn bands…UNLEASHED by Hugo Lindgren (the article really worth the read…). While, its uncertain this is a reemergence of what we saw in the CBGB decade remains to be unseen.  Still, it’s progress. ONWARD fellow bands. ONWARD.

Yes, I do dig on the following, some more than others, as my patience wanes with too much. It’s the lyrics.  LCD inspired me to write this blog with New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down. It pushed me to think about the new, New York. Dig on (in no particular order): MGMT, LCD Soundsystem and Les Savy Fav (photo above).  I struggle with many others listed in the article only because I just can’t listen. I have a threshold people.

MGMT’s song “Time to Pretend” about the model wives, drugs and freedom vs boredom is biting and funny…

” There’s really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten, life can always start up anew.
The models will have children, we’ll get a divorce
We’ll find some more models, everything must run its course.”

WANTED! An educated music man or woman to write me something; doesn’t have to be a disseratation, I’m interested in thoughts of critics who know the genre and of course, BKLYN.
