Casio Noise Dream Pop alert! Brooklyn’s Small Black dropped by Daytrotter recently and you can download a 4 song live set for FREE! I’ve seen Small Black live and I liked them so much I got their album “New Chain.” It’s great. Highlights are “New Chain,” “Hyrda” and “Photojournalist.” Two of those songs can be heard live when you visit Daytrotter. Tell ’em G sent ya!

Brooklyn-based-band Small Black (whew, tongue twister) opened for California band Best Coast at the Bowery Ballroom on September 29, 2010. They describe their sound as “Casio dream noise pop,” and they pretty much hit the nail on the head with those 4 words. Citing influences from Gary Numan to Wu Tang Clan to hot boys (oh, behave!), the band played a great 7 song set, getting the crowd ready to rock. If you missed the show last night, they’ll be performing at the upcoming CMJ music marathon.
Our good friends at RCRD LBL have 3 free mp3s of Small Black, while supplies last, so if any of these words tickle your fancy, check out their music. I met lead singer Josh Kolenik after Small Black’s awesome set and he was very nice. Thanks Josh! See a picture of Josh and I as well as the set list after the jump. Good luck to Small Black!
