The Answering Machine @ Cake Shop during CMJ (The World In A Paper Cup)
One of the bands I regretted missing during CMJ was Manchester's The Answering Machine who I liked a lot when they played here back in April. Well lucky for me, the band have decided to stick around NYC for a while and will be playing a three-week residency at Coco 66 starting tonight (10/28). If you like caffeinated guitar pop somewhere between The Wedding Present, The Strokes, and first album Futureheads (or more recently, Good Shoes) you should definitely check them out. You can download the title track to their debut album, Another City, Another Sorry, at the top of this post -- it's representative of what The Answering Machine do well.
