Pinact is a Scottish trio offering a sort of gentle pop pummeling thar features rock music with big hooks, fuzzy guitars, and on-point vocal harmonies. Often landing somewhere between the harsh assault and verse-chorus-verse frenzy of Nirvana and the fuzzy polished pop of Weezer (with some straight up pop-punk detours), they’ve found their own take on guitar rock, carving a unique path that’s all their own to catchy earworm bliss. They found time to stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO,...

SondorBlue is a super tight pop band from Charleston, South Carolina, which they endearingly refer to as “Chucktown.” Though they don’t share the same endless solos and stoned vibes as jam bands, they do tend to operate in a similar fashion, touring relentlessly and honing their musical craft for a growing legion of fans. These four super positive friends are aiming high, and with their musical sensibilities and skills, they just might have a shot of getting there. They stopped by Serious...

Lina Tullgren

Lina Tullgren is a musician operating out of the mystical north of New England, somewhere in the wilds of Maine. Lina’s ringing, hypnotic guitar work bounces off her vocals, which manage to be both breathy and cutting at the same time, shaping the near-psychedelic textures of these understated songs. The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO for this exclusive look and how they pull these otherworldly sounds together. Lina Tullgren’s debut LP, Won, is available now from Captured...

Silver Torches

Seattle songwriter Erik Walters employs a delicate balance of blue collar everyman rock, country/roots ramble, and melodic indie folk/pop in his music. At home with either the sparseness of a simple acoustic guitar or more fully-fleshed out with a rhythm section, strings, and synths, he visited Serious Business Music in DUMBO solo for an unadorned, raw performance of songs from his excellent new full length album. Let It Be A Dream by Silver Torches is available now. 00:00 - Silver Torches...

Jane Weaver

Jane Weaver is a musician from Liverpool, England. While she is certainly no stranger to collaboration - running a record label and playing in several groups - as a songwriter and performer, she’s uniquely autonomous and largely responsible for everything you’ll hear on her solo pop output, though friends do lend a hand (or instrument) here and there when needed. Jane possesses an otherworldly voice, uniquely suited to singing in her distinctly light but powerful style - which blends...

Joy Again

Hailing from the rich cultural breeding ground of Philadelphia, Joy Again is a quintet right at that vital point in their career between just starting out and truly figuring out their sound - in this case, that means their songs shift from fast and punky to experimental and atmospheric folk at times - but what’s clear already is that they’ve got some big ideas, musical chops, and a lot of energy to put to good use. We were psyched to have them stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO,...

It takes a serious sense of self-assuredness for a band from Seattle to put out an that shares the name of the city’s most popular band,, but as Versing have proven, they’re definitely on their own trip. This is very guitar-centric music, with layers of the twangy, fuzzy, and skronky good stuff playing blended throughout, playing with both sugary sweet melodies and beautiful, chaotic dissonance. While they get heavier at times, the band owes much more to OTHER 90’s bands than the one their...

Faith Healer

The band stopped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, on a recent tour for this special performance. Try ;-) is available now from Mint Records. 00:00...

Brooklyn trio Sloppy Heads have emerged from the secret lair where they’ve crafted their first full on, totally real, cool-as-hell LP with the help of the capable James McNew (Yo La Tengo, Dump).

Big Bliss

Big Bliss is a Brooklyn band formed in 2015 by brothers Cory (drums) and Tim (vocals, guitar) Race, along with bassist Wallace May. The trio blasts out a furious sort of post-punk and indie rock that draws a bit on shoegaze (think perhaps a little Mission Of Burma here, a little Interpol there), and have been playing shows almost constantly since their inception. We finally got them to take a breather and stop by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn to show us what they’ve been up to....

HYUKOH are juggernauts of the Korean indie rock world. Taking on K-Pop and proving that rock n’ roll and other international sounds are welcome in the pop culture scene best known for sugary sweet pop, they’ve climbed the charts and garnered considerable critical acclaim. While their retro-leaning fashion sense knods to something else, musically they run the gamut from gentle indie rock and folk to hard-hitting punk and rap touches. Extremely versatile musicians - and mutli-lingual singers...
