Anjulie - Rocking at CMJ, here's Anjulies catchy and amped up hit below:
DIIV (Formerly known as Dive): this Brooklyn band opened for Grimes this summer and their new album, Oshin, was praised by Pitchfork, Stereogum and Fuse. Their style is dreamy, guitar-driven indie rock with a great beat - definitely a band to check out!
Bear Hands: After the release of their 2007 EP "Golden," this Brooklyn quartet has opened for some big acts including MGMT, the XX, Vampire Weekend, and Le Savy Fav - this is an act not to be missed!
Prince Rama: This Brooklyn trio channels some lo-fi psychedelic, mantra-filled music, with amazing visuals - if you're a fan of Animal Collective's more off-beat songs, this group is for you!
Dead Stars: If you're looking for a blast from the past, this group from Williamsburg, Brooklyn, plays melodic alternative rock channelling the early-90s -- check out their newest single "Fractured," you'll be sure to love it.
MNDR: Although not from Brooklyn, this electronic music duo formed in NYC is not one to be missed! MNDR has been a fixture of NYC since 2009 and the performance will certainly leave a mark at CMJ!
