Bryan Scary to release new album “Daffy’s Elixir” on April 24

Bryan Scary
It’s been nearly three years since the last Bryan Scary release. If this is the first times new fans will hear of Scary, then get ready: his new album, Daffy’s Elixiris about to flood your ears with grandiose 70’s inspired experimental indie pop.  
Having recently played Daffy’s Elixir in its entirety at NYC’s (le) Poisson Rouge venue and now plotting an Off-Broadway theatre work centered around the record, Scary is awing existing fans all-the-while quickly attracting new ones with this bold new project.
Scary‘s previous records garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Stereogum, USA Today, iTunes, Daytrotter, Perez Hilton, RCRD LBL, Paste, Filter, IFC, NY Post and endless others. But we believe Bryan Scary is at his peak with Daffy’s Elixir, a 70-minute opus two years in the making.
For fans lucky enough to be biting from the Big Apple, Scary will be playing a couple key shows in the coming months. He’ll be playing at Joe’s Pub (with fellow label-mates Little Tybee) on April 11, and the Daffy’s Elixir record release show on April 24 at Brooklyn Bowl.

Sami the Great kicks off 2012 with sell-out CD release party

Sami the Great 
Indie-pop songstress Sami the Great celebrates the New Year with her new album at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7 at the Mercury Lounge in New York City. Alongside Sami will be fellow New Yorkers, Tony CastlesSlowdanceThe Sanctuaries and many more. The show  is sold out. The anticipated, self-titled CD is Sami’s first full length project.

Sami Akbari, known musically as sami.the.great, is driven by her overwhelming desire to write and play music. She frequented open mic nights in college, often taking home cash prizes for her highly anticipated performances. She moved to New York City two weeks after receiving her degree in 2005, and quickly began landing gigs at local venues, including The Living Room, Joe’s Pub and Mercury Lounge as well as other venues around the country.

Her latest EP, “Nothing Left to See,” features five original songs written by Sami and a cover of Sting’s “Roxanne.” The disc not only reveals the trajectory of Sami’s songwriting career, but also her deft combination of emotion and wit, of melancholy and humor. Like her live show, the album reflects the notion that great things come in small packages and showcases a small-framed singer whose impassioned voice fills the spaces and lives around her.
