B.E.A.F at Spike Hill: Electro night with Manicanparty, Cultfever, Clementine & the Galaxy, Kiss Slash Crooked Smile, Lips and more.

After two folky bills on Wednesday and Thursday, Spike Hill will host a decidedly electronic, almost entirely lady fronted show on Friday June 07, featuring a lot of bands we are looking forward to seeing in a live setting.

Headlining the night at 12.30 will be Manicanparty (pictured) - a band that has built a meaningful buzz without even having an official EP or LP out - with their angelic electro-pop contaminated by tribal and exotic influences. Right before them at 11.40, Cultfever will enterntain us once again (we booked them a bunch of times!) with their upbeat indie-pop that blends synths, guitars and samples. The third headliner of the night, Clementine & The Galaxy, quite appropriately features a more sci-fi, but still very melodic sound, and Julie Hardy's angelic voice. Stephanie Brown's brainchild Lips will hit the stage at 10, and fill the room with their loungy and melancholic - but not necessarily slow - electronic tunes. We can't wait to see mainstay of the NYC scene Yula Beeri's new electro project Kiss Slash Crooked Smile - the lady can sing and has a lot of presence, you may remember her in Nanuchka and Star Fucking Hipsterz. KNTRL - on the other hand - cannot count on a talented front lady because... they are two dudes - the only dude fronted band of the night as a matter of fact! They are the rocker act on the bill though, which is a great thing to be if you ask us - stick around for them until 1.15am - it's a Friday night! Mystery band S&M (you don't want to miss them) and talented rapper Melissa Czarnik will kick off the night at 7.30 and 8.20 respectively.

NYC band on the rise: Manicanparty

What strange frequency does Manicanparty exist on? Not an easy question to answer. With singer/songwriter Jessica Corazza overlaying obscure references on top of ethereal imagery - and of producer Patrick Morrissey’s endless interventions - the group seems to create their world anew with each song they add to their site.

Just check out the intensely chanted gymnastics of ‘Monarch,’ and you’ll wonder if a new tribe has formed somewhere in Brooklyn, and you’re the last to know about it. Latest track ‘Animal’ - a Miike Snow Cover - takes the Brooklyn duo one step further. You will most likely find it impossible not to fall in love with Jessica as she takes on all manner of shapes and suggestions in the track’s just-released video. Animal, human or otherwise, this is a band that beams all of its music down to Brooklyn from another place entirely.
