Hear a new track from the upcoming Magic Trick album

Tim Cohen (The Fresh and Onlys) is about to embark on a tour. Part of the tour will be Tim Cohen solo and part of it will be with his band Magic Trick (click the picture to visit the Magic Trick page). The new album from Magic Trick will be available in a couple weeks. In the meantime, you can hear “Invisible at Midnight.” This is a dark and moody song that reminds me a lot of Eels. You can also listen to the song “Torture” on the Hardly Art website.

The tour begins in late June. See if the band will be coming your way.

The southern rock of Those Crosstown Rivals

Those Crosstown Rivals is a band I found while browsing one day on Bandcamp. Whether you want to call it southern rock or cowpunk, this is a band that plays its gritty tunes with a raw energy that I love. Don’t be surprised if you see something about this band in an upcoming issue. In the meantime, enjoy this video. I know I do.

Incognito pick of the week: Caramelo

At Incognito, we are fans of funk whether it’s stuff that reminds you of George Clinton or funky Latin music. The bottom line is that we like funk because it’s a kind of music you can feel below your waist.

Enter Caramelo. This is a band that plays funky, soulful tunes that are heavily influenced by flamenco. If you want a good example of the funk this band brings, check out the song “Brooklyn.” This has some really bright and funky trumpet to go with a strong bass line and a guitar part that is muted just like in ska. By now, you know that Incognito celebrates the unusual in music. Caramelo may not be like anything you have in your collection, but it is definitely worth adding to your collection.

The new album Ride is available 29 May
