Bleachers Reveals New Album Art Via Birthday Cake Delivery

Jack Antonoff's solo project kicks off with dessert
Jun 6, 2014 3:00 pm

Jack Antonoff's new solo venture, Bleachers, is an indie pop fan's dream come true. To stay creative during the album release process (Bleachers' Strange Desire goes live next month) Antonoff devised a better way to connect with his fans — a lucky handful got birthday cakes sporting the first view of Bleachers' album art. I talked to Antonoff to see why he didn't get any cake but DID get a bunch of seaweed. I also needed some advice.

Great Good Fine Ok Is A Brooklyn Band With A Sandwich Plan

Their sexy music video, tuna salad, Craigslist fail
May 22, 2014 12:00 pm

I posted the video for synth-pop band Great Good Fine Ok's "You're The One For Me" a few weeks ago. Then their manager hit me up for a food chat which was great, because I actually did have a bunch of questions about that video, so we met up at Dale Talde's roadhouse bar-inspired Pork Slope for beers and inimitable porky melt sandwiches to discuss other inimitable sandwiches. There's no such thing as "too much tuna."

May 15, 2014 1:00 pm

In the new Food Is The New Rock podcast, we learn a few things about Stephen Malkmus (of Pavement and an incredible 14+ year solo-ish career) including that he’s not a big Chris Bosh fan (co-sign) and that it’s “sad” what has happened to Greg Oden. Also, a lot about his interaction with chefs David Chang and Andy Ricker.

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 7:30 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.
