Lunchtime gets super-messy. It's really beautiful.

Great Good Fine OK you're the one for me

Who's the one for you? It's a simple question we've all asked ourselves at one point or another, but Brooklyn duo Great Good Fine OK suggests it's the one who makes you the best sandwich. Watch this music video and try to argue with that.

Good Morning, Here Is Some ‘Coffee’ From Our New Favorite Band Sylvan Esso

You like Feist? You like beats? You like coffee?
Mar 26, 2014 8:30 am

Amelia Meath, of Vermont folk trip Mountain Man, and producer Nick Sanborn (called Made of Oak when playing on stages) formed a side project called Sylvan Esso. Their standout single — “Coffee” — doesn’t really have much to do with Kalita or Aeropress. But who cares, it’s a pretty (and pretty interesting) mashup of styles and what we are listening to this morning.

Video: We Like When Band Au Revoir Simone Reviews Wines After Drinking Lots Of It

Bands: This is what you do when touring France
Feb 25, 2014 5:30 pm

Heather D'Angelo and Annie Hart are two-thirds of Brooklyn electro-pop trio Au Revoir Simone. They are also, apparently, the two wine-loving members of the band as we find them in this video backstage after their recent concert in Roubaix, France talking about the wines on their tour rider. The segment is called "Night Rider Wine" and we really dig it.

Big Gigantic Eats Brussels Sprouts, Skips The Kangaroo

But Boulder's electro-jazz duo prefers pizza. Lots.
Feb 18, 2014 3:00 pm

My first call to Jeremy Salken of Boulder, CO electro-funk band Big Gigantic ended in phone tag while I listened to his outgoing voicemail message, a full minute of confused grandpa assuring you it's all going to be okay. Then he laughed at me for listening to the whole thing. Then we dove right into the most specific request I've ever heard on a tour rider.

Caveman Redesigns The Paleo Diet To Include More Grass-Fed Dino

Plus this one time with Wayne Newton's garlic bread
Oct 16, 2013 3:00 pm

As it turns out, Caveman has nothing to do with the recent Paleo trend. Could have fooled me! Kidding, I met up with the 5-man band, born and bred in NYC, at a pizza spot to get schooled on the actual diets of musicians on the road. What are these classy musicians eating? How did keyboardist Sam terrorize poor Wayne Newton with garlic bread? Where should I go for dinner tomorrow night, guys? 

Preview: We're Hitting Electric Zoo 2013 Super-Hard!

Take a chill pill for feeding time at the Zoo

electric zoo festival

Scoping out the food scene at NYC's premiere electronic music festival may not seem like a priority, but if you can't even temporarily remove whichever part of your costume is preventing you from eating, there's going to be a problem. Going to the fair? Wanna meet up for a falafel or can of champagne? Hit me up, we'll talk/yell shop and I'll spill the secrets of the DJs I'm interviewing...for a price. 

Good Food, Rocks: 5 Sandwiches Invented By The Bands We're Listening To

Boy howdy, do bands love talking about sandwiches!
Aug 26, 2013 11:00 am

Food Republic's Good Food, Rocks series takes you inside the life of hungry musicians on the run (or on the stay — we look in their fridges all the time). They travel, they eat, they have great stories, and I personally always ask this question at the end of the interview: "You just invented a sandwich called (name of latest album or single). What's in it?"

Here's How Brooklyn Band Small Black Swaps Chillwave For Grillwave

And we give their culinary skills a 10.0
Aug 21, 2013 3:00 pm

What's grillwave, you ask? It's a style of guerilla cooking invented by rockers on tour when folks throw the term chillwave around a little too casually. Yeah, Small Black is of the chillwave genre. They're also indie pop, emo-rock, electronic and somehow simultaneously post-chillwave (cause nobody's just chillwave anymore). We sat down for some smoked meat to see what's going on with this fast-rising band, besides a namesake craft beer.
