From Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, Stuyedeyed [STĪ-died] are raw, riotous, direct and they want you to join them for Moments of Terribleness, their new EP. Having grown up in a “New York-for-some” concrete jungle, Stuyedeyed’s songs are mused by their Latinx roots – and you can hear it with every scream and pause coming out of singer/songwriter/guitarist Nelson Antonio Hernandez-Espinal, bassist Humberto Geñao, drummer Luis Ruelas, and guitarist George Ramirez. Moments of Terribleness, is an explosive excavation of self-identity and assimilation, and was lovingly crowdfunded thanks to their devout fanbase. This EP memorializes vanity in an area of individualism by deconstructing what’s considered “cool”.
A Deer A Horse
Dark, heavy, and full of tension, A Deer A Horse’s music is a rare breed in Brooklyn’s DIY scene. Comprised of Rebecca Satellite (vocals/guitar), Angela Phillips (bass/backing vocals), and Dylan Teggart (drums), the trio have embraced the raw and dirty aspects of their city and created something simultaneously urgent, sludgy, and cathartic with their upcoming EP, Backswimmer, set for release on March 10th via Custom Made Music.
