Over time I have met and helped many amazing bands. I want to share with you one of my favorites. Hailing from the outskirts of New York City is a young band of early 20’s lads called Wyldlife. They’ve been making a name for themselves around New York and last year did a super successful Northeast Tour. Imagine if The Strokes and The Ramones had a bastard child. This would turn out to be Wyldlife in the most flattering way possible. Also, what cool parents that would be right? Every tune is addictive, and every note is flawless from one track to the next. The vocals are dead on brilliant. Oh and does the lead singer look familar to you? Well that’s Dave Feldman, the brother of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and The Depreciation Guild’s Kurt Feldman. I hate to play favorites but I’m loving Wyldlife more.
You can catch Wyldlife this coming Thursday, March 25th in New York City. They’re playing Webster Hall. The show starts at 8pm and it’s Ages 19+. 10 bucks will get you into one of the most energetic concerts you’ll ever see. Consider this peer pressure. Go do it!
Here’s some Wyldlife for your downloading pleasure and check out more songs on their Myspace HERE.

The time has finally come. Modern day garage heroes, and much missed may I add, The Strokes are finally working on album number 4! It seems so long since ‘First Impressions of Earth’ was released. In fact its been 3 years since we’ve heard from the band as a collective. I guess Albert, Fab and Niko are ready to pry themselves away from their side projects for now and bring it back to where it all started. One little band, that believe it or not, was really the beginning of the new garage revival (people didn’t start caring about The White Stripes until after)
Fab stated in the most recent issue of NME that Julian and Nick have already started to write songs for the new record, but nothing has been recorded just yet. The article also states that the band is gearing up to start recording sometime in February. That means a new Strokes record by the year’s end. One word: Excitement!
The Strokes Live on Fuse’s 7th Avenue Drop, January 2006. Performing ‘Someday’
I was there. Front row. Chatting it up with The Strokes. Good times.
