Mondo.NYC | Invertebrate Showcase
New independent record label Invertebrate had it’s own showcase at Mondo.NYC at Brooklyn’s The Gateway, showcasing their artist Field Trip as well as other new music from NYC! Invertebrate also has a strong promotions branch to compliment its label, focusing on independent rock, and we were lucky enough to be able to check these artists out at this sold out show!
With the biggest audience out of any of the Mondo showcases this week, Invertebrate featured their signed artist Field Trip, playing us songs from their new album Horror Vacui. Their music is fairly heavy rock with a tinge of electronic elements coming through, which is a style of music I haven’t heard much of lately, with drums, electric and bass guitars, and synths forming the line up, so it was really interesting and new to see this being performed (pictured above), a long with a rather unique stage set up with the drummer in the front and middle!
Homeshake headlined the night. Keeping in tone with the Invertebrate sound, Homeshake had a rock sound with electronic techniques included.
Museyroom opened the night, who were more on the psychedelic side of rock music, but with a touch of pop coming through at times, to give them a sound I definitely haven’t heard in the UK live music scene much lately, so it was cool to see this again.
Harmony Tividad followed, who was an acoustic singer songwriter with herself and her guitar on stage. Originally half of the indie pop duo ‘Girlpool,’ Harmony has gone solo and we were excited to see her solo project here at Invertebrate’s showcase!
Invertebrate being only a couple of years old, having already showcased at CMJ last year, and being an all year round promotions company, I was really impressed by the high quality of music, as well as the huge following they have. Definitely the most exciting night of Mondo.NYC!
