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...

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.

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,...
