What I’ve been listening to most this week : LCD SoundsystemSound Of Silver, The FratellisCostello Music, Nine Inch NailsYear Zero, a lot of iPod shuffle time, and even some radio(WXPN).

K’nise Connections’ pick of the week is the indie alternacoustic sounds of London’s Grand Central. Think Midlake meets Coldplay and you’ll have an idea of what they sound like.

Amazing power pop band,The Celebrities start an ongoing Thursday Night residency at the 449 Room in Trenton NJ. From the bands myspace:
After performing all over the east coast with the likes of OKGO, Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes, The Pink Spiders, and even the legendary Beach Boys with their previous bands LUZER and Dr. Thunder, Timmy Sean (vocals/guitar/keys), Chris Volk (lead guitar/keys), Dan Seeth (drums) and Krishna “The Mania” Vasudevan (vocals/bass) officially formed The Celebrities ringing in the New Year on January 1. Since that time the band has written more than twenty songs, including the four tracks featured on “The Free Four All Demo”, a sampler EP available for free beginning April 7. The four songs can also be downloaded online from the band’s official MySpace page. “We’re really proud of our new music, and we just want as many people to hear it as possible…even if that means putting it out there for free,” says The Celebrities’ chief songwriter Timmy Sean.

Some photos from a show I went to see this past Saturday at the 449 Room in Trenton NJ. Boston’s The Charms fronted by the lovely Ellie Vee headlined the night and delivered a powerhouse set of sixties inspired garage rock. Also on the bill were three of NJ’s finest, the power pop punk Fiendz,The 7 piece garage rock Cryptkeeper 5, and The Frantic with a bit more modern take on the genre, similar to The Strokes or The Killers. All in all a great night of music with four hot bands and only $5.
