About Lullavie

What started off as a passionate interest with college radio (WBMB Baruch College Radio), along with writing for an online music publication, and interviewing artists on and off the record, became a revelatory idea for a growing project.

Lullavie will steer away from recycling the elitist reviews derived from music publications. It involves so much more—multi-media production, submission based storytelling, & user-friendliness. This site will show you the compelling lifestyles of local musicians and commentary on just anything—not just music. You’ll hear stories of experience, watch atypical live sessions, and see beautiful creations and collections coming from YOU and your personalized submissions. We will bring musicians, artists, listeners, readers, writers, and all of you together in the same sweet, sacred place. Whenever you feel like it.

Bumping Into New Bands and Surprises

Bumping Into New Bands and Surprises

You can never know for certain what you’ll find. Something very special can be packed away in that tight-spaced venue you were always sort of invested in going to but never gave the actual chance, until one day you just whip out that five dollar bill to the girl at the entrance and tell yourself why not.

 

Elvis Guesthouse was a lot wilder than expected. I had learned a few things from being there that night too, like how it’s owned by the same owner of Baby’s All Right (my favorite venue in Brooklyn), serves delicious rosé and Japanese beer on tap, and happens to attract lots of artists that go under alias names such as Ingrid Superstar, more popularly known as Greta Kline from her band, Frankie Cosmos.

I kind of laughed when I found out she’d be there, because the week before I just so happened to bump into her once more at 4Knots Music Festival and with the first time being at an office party from my former internship two years ago. Big city, small world, I thought. Right then and there, she was opening for a friend’s band, so I knew I was in the middle of waiting for a wonderful show to happen.

When Blonder stepped up after Greta, I immediately felt them. Their presence and music. Although there isn’t much information on the band, I did grasp a few small facts— the lead singer’s name is Constantine, he’s friends with Greta Kline (Frankie Cosmos) and her boyfriend, Aaron Maine (Porches), the band hasn’t played too many shows yet despite how capable and danceable they are when heard live, and my favorite song of theirs, “Lean,” is the only Blonder song out for my and everyone else’s leisurely consumption. Blonder really reminded me of Beach Fossils with their dreamy pop guitar tone, but the lofty synth production and electronic percussion definitely help set them apart. While “Lean” captures the summer mood well, it’ll be more than just a seasonal tune. Play it and I promise you for the future, any Blonder song will  bring in lots of fun at any day, any time when nothing’s really planned.
