Jupiter Nights – Basilica Hudson’s summer series of art/music events in our Gallery Building – featuring the frenetic sampler indie rock of Water From Your Eyes (NYC) and the rollicking tunes of two-singer Bruiser and Bicycle (Albany, NY)

Water From Your Eyes

Life is horribly dark right now. And yet, it is not unfunny.

That’s the sentiment that animates Water From Your Eyes on their new album, and first for Matador, Everyone’s Crushed. On the follow-up to the Brooklyn duo’s 2021 breakthrough, Structure,  Rachel Brown (they/them) and Nate Amos (he/him) find silliness and fatalism dancing in a frantic lockstep, using heart palpitating rhythms and absurdist, deadpan lyrics to convey stories of personal and societal unease. It’s a swollen contusion of an album: experimental pop music that’s pretty and violent, raw and indelible.

Everyone’s Crushed maps the liminal space between humor and darkness, between cracking up and freaking out.

Bruiser and Bicycle

Bruiser and Bicycle: Replete with rich imagery and burning affirmations for life, the Albany, NY group’s exploratory writing takes the form of grandiose song structures, call-and-response passages, and confrontations with the unfamiliar.
