More erratic than ever, No Shoes comes back after announcing hiatus with a new double single entitled, Chocolate Pudding- what ever happened to that hiatus? Vocals tinted with anthem-esque vibrations are softly mixed into the sea of guitar chatter that takes it’s lead from spastic math rock. The title track might take a minute to get going, but once it does, not unlike ‘Spitting Venom’, it refuses to stop as it builds and builds, feigning momentary lapse in intensity to catch you off guard with intense power.

For those of you who have been following us for the past year, this is the re-birth of The Meme Movement, which was 3 years ago, a design service. Join us this weekend in celebrating life. It’s always free, it’s always all ages. Come early for happy hour, stay late for the tentatively scheduled orgy- drink beer cause you can and get down with some of the most authentic DIY music that this fine, fine piece of ass we call a city has.

+ TONIGHT: Join the crew from A Mini Tribe for what is always a party, and sometimes a riot, at Muchmore’s “Back to School” [Facebook Event]
Last night was our second event working together with the Meme Movement. We curated a long list of bands for Fresh Arrest and wanted to extend our warm gratitude to all the musicians (Itchy Hearts, No Shoes, Large Lady, Newport Reds, Sitting Ducks, The Jean Jackets), technicians, sponsors, bartenders, security and other staff involved (especially the venue). We’d also like to thank everyone who showed up to the show. You might not realize it, but without your participation and support, the NYC live music scene is dead. We hope you were sufficiently drunk. Here are a few photos from the night, shot by Maverick Inman of Mavy Entertainment and Meme:
Soulbound Volume Four by Various Artists (November 30, 2011) *
Last night, we released the fourth installment of our compilation series, Soulbound. We’d like to thank all the artists involved, artists who are helping build a wonderful record of our generations musical ventures. Starting with Secret Mommy and ending on NAPS, every song carries it’s own weight. As always, it’s free.
With a completely lacking aesthetic, No Shoes presents a wonderfully fulfilling indie take on math rock that moves quickly from troubled crawl to frantic panic. Breaking out into a jam that most bands would be hardpreses to copy, the Cow Drawings EP is a testament.
With technology growing exponentially, personal computing is challenging the recording business and the internet is challenging the publishing business. Now more than ever, we see the pool of music and design growing deeper. But as always, the more music there is, the harder it is to find what really matters.
