And The Wiremen

NYC-based And The Wiremen’s take on sleepy, warm, indie jazz manages to mesh 1920s Berlin, the East Village of 1960, Southern blues, Latin Carnival rhythms and the eclectic vibe of modern day Brooklyn, making for some fresh, interesting music for audiophiles with grown-up taste. Front man Lynn Wright’s vocals are as across the board as his influences, sometimes invoking the likes of Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley and post-Zeppelin Robert Plant. ATW’s signature track, “Sleep,” with its bittersweet romantic nature and melancholy horns, conjures up images of rain-drenched, black-and-white breakup scenes, perfect for those who love some “hurts-so-good” musical heartache. With Suicide Jack, Eric Apoe. MA’CHELL DUMA LAVASSAR
