    Discovery is an experimental pop group with disco, Latin, and prog rock influences that performs often in NYC. Always Discovery’s approach has been to keep it funky. Discovery has been said to straddle Tropicalia and post punk genres equally with comparisons ranging from Maximum Joy and Teena Marie to Hot Chip and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. The group is not a rock band, per se–there is no guitar player in the group at present time. Focus on the bass grooves and drum rhythms for infectious , danceable fun. Vocalist Kathleen Cholewka sings with rock bravado and yet can emote in an intimate cabaret-like style. Lex Marsh’s synth tones and Bridget Fitzgerald’s string lines heighten the mood. Lyrics range from the abstract and dark, dreamy and suggestive to the provocative and direct. Along with originals, Discovery also lovingly chooses covers to perform including Laura Nyro’s Stoney End, Debbie Deb’s When I Hear Music, The Rolling Stones Under my Thumb, and Smokey Robinson’s Baby That’s Backatcha. Visit myspace.com/thisisdiscovery to hear live tracks.

    Discovery’s first album of ten tracks called Pushy was released mid-year in 2010. It is available on cdbaby and iTunes. The group is now enlisting some of NYC’s music specialists to remix some of their tracks. The most recent is DJ Alfreako’s Moonlight Mix of Starmagic now available on 7″ vinyl and via Dancecampmusic.com.

    Discovery started in vocalist Kathleen Cholewka’s dark Brooklyn basement in 2004 and had its first performance later that year. Over the years the group’s line up has included notable NYC players. Original and past members include guitarist Don Stahl, and keyboardist Lindsay Kaye. At one point Patrick Wood of Phenomenal Handclap Band was Drumming in Discovery. Marsh who joined early on to add additional bass, sax and keyboard sounds, is now writing much of Discovery’s music with Cholewka. David Smith, a much sought-after trombonist, joined and played on Discovery’s album pushy. David Scott of Guru’s Jazzmatazz continues to add his virtuosity to the mix via percussion and flute. And currently Julliard grad Fitzgerald’s viola playing brings unique and intense textures.  http://www.dancecampmusic.com/

    Slow Disco Saturdays
    Arriving (just barely) in time for the onset of Fall, Slow Disco Saturdays is a new monthly in store DJ session at halcyon the shop, hosted by our own queen of the retarded beat scene, Bianca Von Baum. Each month’s session will feature a special guest DJ laying down 3 hours of tempo challenged choons, from dawdling cosmic Disco to lazy low-slung Funk and lead-footed Balaeric burners. So if you are feeling sluggish after a Friday night of quick paced rubbish, come pitch it down with Ms. Baum on a Slow Disco Saturday afternoon.

    In the annals of college radio, few programs had a more substantial impact than The Stretch Armstrong Show, or, as it’s more commonly known, “The Stretch & Bobbito Show.” DJ Adrian “Stretch Armstrong” Bartos and Robert “Bobbito” Garcia’s hip-hop broadcast, which aired 1 to 5 a.m. Friday mornings (“Thursday nights”) on Columbia University‘s WKCR-FM from 1990 to 1998, gave Nas, the Notorious B.I.G.Jay-ZBig PunDMX, and the late Big L some of their earliest exposure via in-studio freestyles recorded while all of them were still unsigned and somewhat anonymous. “That show was like a trampoline in some ways—it elevated a lot of artists that were never heard before,” explains Bronx rapper Lord Finesse, a frequent guest. “If you didn’t have a deal and you was on there and you was dope, word traveled. And if the word didn’t travel, the tape damn sure traveled.” [Read More]
