Toronto In Tow



Galapagos seems to have become the latest locus for new and interesting music in New York, thanks in no small part to New Amsterdam's Undiscovered Islands weekly, which wrapped up it's four-week run last night. The place was standing-room only for Missy Mazzoli's "Song From the Uproar," somewhat less so for William Brittelle's Television Landscape, which suffered from early technical glitches and somewhat prosaic sound. Brittelle describes Television Landscape on his site as: "an apocalyptic (yet hopeful) eighties album about the future." To me, it sounded a lot like soul pop, an appearance enhanced by Brittelle's dark suit and tie. If his intention was to be ironic (never a good idea, btw), I'm afraid it was lost on most. (More pics below.)
