nyc // brooklyn heat

I’ve been holding out on you guys, I’m sorry. For weeks now, I’ve been sitting on a sick compilation that’s kind of made for this blog.
Meet “Brooklyn Heat”, six songs by six bands that producer Shane O’Connor thought were doing something worthwhile in Brooklyn. This summer, he put on his engineering and mixing boots and tackled six days (one band a day) of recording at Monsterland Recording Studio in Brooklyn.
And man, this has Boston all over it. It essentially proves this blog’s point. O’Connor broke the connection down for me:
Shark? – no Boston relation
Gunfight – formerly a Boston based band, now Brooklynites
Quiet Loudly – ex members of Pinochio Syndrome, a Boston band.
Little Racer – ex Peasantry, a Boston rock band (disbanded only to form Passion Pit ……)
Magnetic Island – no Boston relation
Quilty – ex MIT dropouts
Four out of six? Hell yes. Plus I think it’s funny that Shark?, a band I mentioned a couple weeks ago when talking about Oops Baby Records, is on this. By funny I mean awesome.
The comp is now up on Bandcamp and can be yours for $0. The cool thing about this is I’d be willing to pay more than $0 for it.
