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.
Brendan Rivera is a Brooklyn singer-songwriter who has not only toured with Silverstein, but also had an album released on Verona Records, the label run by Shane Todd of Silverstein. Rivera will release his new album No Ocean in Ireland (Veggie Co. Records), an album he describes as “Irish-Americana indie rock” on 12 June. You can stream the entire album now on Bandcamp.

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.
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.
