Other Passengers New EP & More Good Local Music
'In October 2004, Other Passengers released their debut EP, Is It Nothing to You, All Those Who Pass By?. Spannning 22 minutes, the five members draw influence from a wide range of envelope pushing artists past and present like Can, Jawbox, Bauhaus, Sonic Youth, early Pink Floyd, Eno, RZA, Spacemen 3.'
I like it, and they're good live, so they were my recommendation yesterday on Gothamist's local band feature, New York Music Bloggers Help You Stuff Your Stocking. Check it out.
