Brooklyn-via-Wes Bands in Nylon

Ok here is more beating you over the head with this Wesleyan/Brooklyn thing- page 132 of this month’s Nylon magazine features “Brooklyn Bands” as a reason to feel superior about being American: “In New York’s most populous borough, you can’t toss a PBR can without hitting a good musician.”

Repping Wesleyan among said bands are Amazing Baby, Bear Hands, and Boy Crisis:

  • amazing baby: Though less than a year old, Amazing Baby play psychedelia like they spent the lat ’60s turning on and dropping out.
  • bearhands: An upbeat, occasionally pop-y four-piece that sings a hell of a good reluctant love song.
  • boy crisis: Boy Crisis is what Prince would sound like if he was actually five guys from Brooklyn. We really hope they tour with Girl Talk soon.

See if you can spot Ted Feldman ’09 (Bear Hands), Lee Pender ’07 (Boy Crisis), and Victor Vasquez ’06 (Boy Crisis) in this Brooklyn scene summer camp photo from Nylon, below:
