Journalism
Journalism
While there is irony in a band calling themselves Journalism, don't confuse it with today’s increasingly popular tongue-in-cheek cynicism. With their debut LP Faces (released March 4 on Dead Stare Records) Journalism frontman (and former journalism major) Kegan Zema investigates the very nature of being in a band.

The Brooklyn quartet's long awaited debut is an exciting record that blends boisterous indie rock, fuzzy krautrock, reverberating post-punk, and big hook-fueled pop songs to create anxious and contemplative art-pop that shines in the darkness.

Lush yet gritty, the tracks feature a pounding urgency that underscores the anxiety of figuring out just what the hell you’re supposed to be doing with your mid-20’s. “You’re close enough but you can’t taste it / ‘Cause you’re so bored from all the waiting,” sings Zema at the close of the album.
Obliques
Obliques is the subsequent result of two transatlantic chance encounters in dive bars in Berlin and NYC. Amidst relentless white noise, our sound aims to be cynically romantic, nostalgic without succumbing to retro fetishism and urgent enough to keep the after hours from dwindling. Best heard between 2am and 6am.
Monograms
Monograms is the alias of frontman & multi-instrumentalist Ian Jacobs. Hailing from the indie rock pillar of Brooklyn, NYC, Monograms fuses elements of garage rock, surf and psych with electronic drum beats and a swagger filled croon.
