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.

Unless you have been living under a rock lately, you may have heard about a little band called The Pains of Being Pure of Heart. Yes, they are one of the most attention grabbing bands that have come out of New York City in a while, but the buzz on the street is starting to point to another upcoming indie act called Wyldlife. Wyldlife singer Dave Feldman has music flowing through his veins, as his brother Kurt Feldman plays drums in both The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and The Depreciation Guild. Even though Wyldlife has barely broken into their twenties, the band has been together more than half their life and it shows. Fresh off their summer tour, the band who is already working on songs for album two, have just released their new EP titled Now We Are Gentlemen. Once you grab ahold of this record you will not want to let it go. Every song seems catchier than the one before and it somehow gets better with every listen. With killer guitar licks from Sam Allen and Jon Rick alongside the brilliant rhythm section of G Scott Corey and Spencer Alexander, the band manages to create a sound that hasn’t had me this excited since I first heard The Strokes who they share a degree of likeness to. Feldman’s voice is smooth with a slight rock edge and a lot of soul which is hard to pull off. This combination makes Wyldlife nearly flawless and extremely memorable. Watch out New York, there’s a new buzz band in town.

We always love a good Pains of Being Good at Heart Video, and their newest for ‘Young Adult Friction’ takes the cake as our favorite so far. The video has a nice homemade look to it. Save the frills for someone else please. The overall feel of the video makes it feel like it was shot in the 70’s, and the singing skeleton is quite a nice touch. You can tell the band had a great time making this video. You’ll have a great time watching it as well.
