The Grasping Straws
Psychedelic art rock. The Grasping Straws have been consistently performing in and around New York City since 2012. In July 2014, the group went on their first national tour with fellow NYC-based artist Cannonball Statman. The band's founder, Mallory, has since gone on to tour Europe, Canada and more of the US as a solo acoustic incarnation of The Grasping Straws to support the June 2015 release of the band's debut album.
The Grasping Straws continue to tour and perform locally around NYC, while working on writing and recording new material.
"Frontwoman Mallory Feuer blends an otherwordly, raw, bluesy edge with the fearlessness of pre-meltdown Courtney Love, both vocally and guitar-wise, instantly putting this group on the map as one of New York's most distinctive, individualistic, exciting new bands."
- New York Music Daily
"The Grasping Straws drifted into slow, drum-marched songs that, particularly with front-woman Mallory Feuer's drawn-out and bluesy vocals, recalled the lo-fi glory of early Cat Power. Taking their time rather than rushing towards easy shock, these tracks intrigued with their very patience and calm and, perhaps most importantly, were ultimately moving, their tumbling quality enabling the audience to both engage and reflect."
The Deli Magazine
Mischeif Night
Mischief Night combines a unique blend of rock, jazz, folk, and lo-fi elements to create rich, layered compositions. Marcus and Mallory are partners in music and life that met in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. After playing in numerous bands, Marcus relocated to Brooklyn and formed Mischief Night with Mallory complimenting the group as a vocalist/violinist/percussionist.
Psych Rock Machine fights off the bad things with sweet organ melodies, jagged rock guitars, and harmonies sent from somewhere unknown.
Regarding the track "Offering":
"The recording style on this acoustic track makes it feel both cavernous and intimate; the vocals soar in the near distance, while the drums and casio tones are close at hand. The lyrics are intriguing, as well."

ONFIILM
Born of the genius of Jordan Craig and Aaron Sager-Yung ONFIILM is a magical spaceship of Post Punk Abrasive Blues.
The sounds of ONFIILM take the listener down a dirty but sparkling intergalactic black hole and into a magical plane of shoe gaze psychedelia. The lyrics are terrestrial but the vibe is extra.
