Interview: Brick Mower

New Jersery’s “living room punk” three-piece, Brick Mower, are about to release Teenage Graceland on the 25th of March (see Artist to Watch profile). Before their record release show this Friday at The Acheron, we talked touring, baking, burritos and more.

Job Advert: Brick Mower are on the lookout for a touring drummer. If interested, please contact the band.

On any given week there are hundreds of shows to see in New York City. It’s impossible to hit all of them, so the experts on the My Social List team will be hand-picking their “can’t miss” artists for the week.

Who They Are: Eric, Kristin and Steve have been bashing out music as Brick Mower since 2009, they are from New Brunswick, NJ and have toured almost every state in the US, playing hundreds of shows along the way.

What They Sound Like: Self-described as “Living Room Punk”, which is hard to fault. Brick Mower fit nicely into that slightly hard to separate punk/rock/powerpop space, the songs are raw and suffice to say they are perfectly at home on Don Giovanni alongside contemporaries Worriers, Upset, Vacation, Shellshag, California X, Kicking Spit and Priests. They delivered one of the most instantly satisfying sets I saw in 2013 at Death By Audio in February.
