Brooklyn Vegan previews Casper & The Cookies’ NYC show

Brooklyn Vegan previews Casper & The Cookies’ NYC show at Cake Shop!

Casper & the Cookies are local legends in Athens, Georgia. Main man Jason NeSmith, who was in of Montreal circa Satanic Panic in the Attic…knows his way around a hook and puts more good ideas into one song than most folks do on an album…Casper & the Cookies are on a short East Coast tour and that hits NYC Saturday (4/5) at Cake Shop with fellow pop pop maven Doug Gillard and Lame Drivers. I haven’t seem them play since NYC Popfest 2009 but they were a bundle of energy then and a lot of fun.

Boston Surival Guide features Casper & The Cookies

Boston Survival Guide features Casper & The Cookies and their new album Dingbats in advance of Tuesday’s show at O’Brien’s:

Jason NeSmith (vocals/guitar/keys), Kay Stanton (bass/vocals/keys), AJ Griffin (vocals/keys) and Gregory Sanders (drums) are currently in and/or have traveled through an impressive lineage — Of Montreal, Olivia Tremor Control, The New Sound of Numbers and Supercluster. They’ve toured with The Apples in Stereo, were Daniel Johnson’s backing band and opened for the B-52s’ 34th anniversary show in Athens…Their eerie contemplation about touring life, “Lemon Horses,” reads like a hazy, confusing dream, at some uneasy place between wakefulness and sleep.

SONG OF THE WEEK: The Bluegrass Situation features The River Monks

The Bluegrass Situation features The River Monk’s new single “Beasts” as Song of the Week:

Home Is the House, the Monks’ latest album, is a pensive, slow-rolling think piece on middle America. Especially “Beasts,” the banjo-driven single, full of gorgeous five-part harmonies, and river town mysticism. In this day and age, I’d like to think that bands like The River Monks can cut through the coastal clatter, and pave a way for other Iowan artists on a national level.
