Hitting a high note


"Little Stoner" is a new track from a recently released record by singer-songwriter Max Stalker-Wilde. 

The video, filmed on 16mm by Jonas Bishop Hayes, was shot around the East Village, where Stalker-Wilde was born and raised. And Ray's Candy Store, where Stalker-Wilde has worked for the past few years, has a starring role. 

"In fact, I had to make a couple of milkshakes and egg creams during the shooting just so I could get the foot traffic moving faster for production's sake," he told us. 

Check out more of Stalker-Wilde's music at Bandcamp.

Made for dancin'


Local faves cumgirl8 released a single (via their new label 4AD) and video this week for "cicciolina."

The track is a tribute to Ilona Staller, aka Cicciolina, the Hungarian-born former porn star, politician and singer. The band explains the reasoning behind the song on Instagram

The band will be on the road soon, playing dates in North America (including opening a few nights for Le Tigre) and Europe. (This Brooklyn Vegan piece lists the dates.)

RIP Vivian Trimble


Using this Friday-at-5-video post to remember Vivian Trimble, a keyboardist and vocalist from Luscious Jackson. She died on April 4 of cancer treatment complications. She was 59. 

The video for "Citysong" is from the band's debut release from 1994. 

In recent years Trimble lived in New Hampshire with her husband and two sons. However, she was active in this community during her time in NYC, which Performance Space New York on First Avenue and Ninth Street acknowledged in a tribute on Instagram....
