DIIV

DIIV is the name of the band for the solo projects of Zachary Cole Smith who is best known as the guitarist for Beach Fossils.

This Brooklyn-based musician originally named the band Dive but changed the name when he discovered that it was already being used by a Belgium industrial band.

His debut album is entitled Oshin.

The song “Doused” is amazing and truly one of the best rock songs of the year!

Twin Shadow

Twin Shadow is the pseudonym of George Lewis Jr.

Born in the Dominican Republic, he currently resides in Brooklyn with previous stops in Florida and Boston.

Confess is his second album inspired by an intense ride on his motorcycle, pushing the limit, after a previous accident in Boston.

“Five Seconds” from the album harkens back to the best of the New Wave.

Paul Banks

Paul Banks, the man with the compelling lead voice in the band Interpol, has just released an EP as a precursor to a full solo album in September.

He uses the name Julian Plenti for his solo projects. Thus the title: Julian Plenti Lives…

“Summertime is Coming” is the featured track.
