Noteworthy 01 Compilation Release Show
Noteworthy 01 Compilation Release Show
Presented by Glassnote Records, Noteworthy 01 is the debut compilation comprised of emerging New York City-based bands. The compilation out July 28th features the bands Plain Dog, Petite League, Grim Streaker, Your Dog, Blasteroid, Native Sun, The 94 Knicks, and THICK. Curated by Glassnote Records the importance of the first compilation was to find and support buzzing, emerging talent in New York City. This is the first in a series with the aim of giving talented artists the platform to succeed in an ever-changing music landscape.
Grim Streaker
Grim Streaker
Grim Streaker plays the kind of loud, fast, abrasive punk that emerged in L.A. and D.C. in the early-80s, mixed with a dose of the snotty, mid-tempo punk of late-70s New York and London. The band’s sound lies somewhere between that of the Adolescents, the Dead Boys, X-Ray Spex and Fugazi, with layers of guitar noise reminiscent of current bands like A Place to Bury Strangers, White Lung and METZ.

Singer Amelia Bushell, guitarists Dan Peskin and Micah Weisberg, bassist Bill Dvorak and drummer Piyal Basu formed the band in late 2016. Since then, the group has been making a name for itself in the venues and DIY spaces of Brooklyn, with live shows quickly becoming known for the wild stage antics of Bushell.

Grim Streaker released its first single, "Guts" in January, produced by Mike Kutchman (Parquet Courts, WALL, Sharon Van Etten). Stereogum calls the track "one of those introductions that arrives fully formed while still promising even more to come."
Petite League
Petite League
Upon arriving in Syracuse after growing up in Brussels, Belgium as an American expat, Lorenzo Gillis Cook was introduced to the fast paced, lo-fi sound of the American house show scene. Though he had been making music for years under the name Spark Alaska and a multitude of high school bands, the franticness and earnest expression being put on display in these upstate basements and attics was infectious.

In late 2014, Cook brought the first Petite League demo of friend and drummer Henry Schoonmaker, and the rest is history. Since then, the two have recorded two albums (Slugger and No Hitter), garnered press from Pitchfork, the Fader, Noisey, etc. , co-founded the notable Syracuse DIY venue Scarier Dome, and now reside in Ridgewood, Queens post-graduation.

This bring us to present day, and the band’s the third record, Rips One Into the Night. Blending the sweet, bubblegum qualities of bedroom pop and the snot nosed fuzz of garage rock, Rips One Into the Night is Petite League fully-formed. Coming in at 10 tracks, Rips One Into the Night will be released on September 1st by The Native Sound and the band’s own Scarier Dome label.
Your Dog
Your Dog
Prolific Singer Songwriter Ian Bond had been playing in a series of bands in the Bronx before forming Your Dog in late 2016. Joined by Kate FitzSimons (drums), and Julius Bowditch (bass), the band released their debut EP Talking to Bob via Invertebrate in December 2016. Written primarily where Bond and FitzSimons reside, the release contained four short and sweet tracks filled with contemplative lyrics and distorted guitar riffs. Talking to Bob honestly and accurately depicts the ongoing battle with cognitive dissonance: the vacillation between childhood nostalgia and the crippling anxiety and uncertainty of what the future may hold.
Native Sun
Native Sun
Native Sun is a four-piece rock n roll band from Brooklyn. Loud and urgent, their music breeds a beautiful chaos evocative of each member's experiences. Frontman Danny Gomez first met lead guitarist Jake Pflum while growing up in Florida. After years without contact they reconnected by chance on a random evening in the city, rekindling their friendship over their mutual obsession for The Rolling Stones and Velvet Underground. They immediately forced their best friend Alexis Castro to play drums. Bassist Mo Martinez uprooted to the city from Monterrey, Mexico. In hopes of playing music he reached out to Danny through mutual friends and naturally completed the band's lineup.
