Getting emails from Matt at Funny/ Not Funny Records always brightens my day. The label puts out the best of the halfway-Southern indie genre, and today they posted a free Fall Mix for stream/download on their site. “13 new tracks from the F/NF past, present, and future family!”
Cedermark happens to be playing the Rose Quartz x Microphone Memory Emotion Showcase a week from today, that’s next Friday, Oct. 22 at Shea Stadium. It’s going to be a righteous jam of a night, get pumped with this gorgeously aching track, “Why We Exist.” Reason: To listen to music…

Andrew Cedermark seems to play lead and rhythm guitar at the same time. That is really hard to do successfully, but he does it. With just a three-piece band Cedermark makes an intricate rock racket. Check out the video and mp3 for “Moon Deluxe” below, off his new album of the same name.
Cedermark is located in Charlottesville. If that’s where this video was shot, looks pretty idyllic. (Even tho the video is kind of scary!)
Get Moon Deluxe, out now on Underwater Peoples. Get it!

Each time Andrew Cedermark washes up on a stage in Brooklyn (or anywhere, for that matter) he likely wins over every newcomer in the room. His music is aggressively addictive, and takes cues from classic rock and roll, clean-cut rockabilly and indie-nostalgia all at once. Each song is like a tiny story, with chapters full of detail. Moving from one section to another, always hitting you over the head with subtlety, Cedermark creates an indelible feeling in your ears. It’ll never go away. You will never forget.
“Moon Deluxe” is the first single to be released from his upcoming LP on Underwater Peoples. Also see “Hard Livin’,” a track which finds Cedermark on the gentler, more folky side of the lake. This is not to say the song isn’t loud and dramatic, but the songs tone is a bit more nuanced.
Once a member of Titus Andronicus, a band from his hometown of Glen Rock, NJ, Cedermark on his own still employs the frantic, do or die style of guitar playing.

I generally don’t like the idea of music festivals. Too much to see, too many people, over-priced beer, stages that are too big for indie bands, etc. But I do like The L Magazine’s Northside Festival. Here are my reasons:
1. It’s cheap. Badges, although not guaranteed entry, are only $50, and last for four-days.
2. Sponsoring is minimal. Yeah, Heineken was everywhere. But that was basically it. In the press goody bag I got a healthy aloe drink, pirate booty and a novel. That’s the most inoffensive sponsoring ever.
3. It’s in BROOKLYN!
4. Stages are curated and presented by local blogs and websites. In SXSW fashion, you get to go to your favorite blogs or media peoples’ shows. But it’s on a smaller and more unique scale.
This year marked the 2nd year of Northside, and the bands were great.
Titus Andronicus. Especially when Patrick Stickles told audience members to “not be animals and throw trash everywhere.”
Coasting. This dynamic duo from Brooklyn play fast and ferocious punk rock ala 2010, with tons of reverb. The band played the Brooklyn Based showcase, which MME curated! (Pat on the back.)
Cloud Nothings. The power-pop of alterna-rock Cleveland outfit Cloud Nothings is so infectious you’ll find yourself jumping up and down. The band played its first show opening for Real Estate back in early December, and are on tour with Wavves. That’s not for no reason….
Andrew Cedermark. Does being in a 120 degree room with humidity and feeling like a breath of fresh air is being blown over your soul and into your ears sound possible? It is.
Dana Jewell. Love songs at their most tender.
Andrew Cedermark, Martin Courtney, Patrick Stickles.
It was a real treat on Saturday night at Chocolate Bobka’s Northside Fest show at Shea Stadium when this version of Cedermark’s band reunited…
