Black Taxi have fleshed out their sound and their confidence is apparent on the Chiaroscuro EP.

Last year, we caught Brooklyn’s Black Taxi at CMJ Music Marathon and this year, the band will again be a part of CMJ with spots on at least three showcases, the No Shame event on October 18th at 2 pm at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn, then in Manhattan for two gigs on the 19th, at Madison House event in the morning at Rockwood and to the Mercury Lounge again that night. From the way the band’s sound has developed in the past year (listen to the Chiaroscuro EP stream below), I’d be eager to catch them again. Astheir shows are already explosive, this stronger and more confident core of songs will allow for a larger presence on stage.

Julianna Barwick performed the ethereal and haunting "The Harbinger" in the most ideal of places for the song... Iceland's Þingvellir National Park. It's totally gorgeous and yet another fine video produced by our friends at La Blogothèque. Stunning.

Sole new track 'Fall Back' is a tantalising teaser for album four, another trojan horse pop beauty.

“I am not afraid to let go / Of all the history that pushed me over,” yearns Danilova recast as Hamlet’s lovestruck Ophelia, “I would do anything to be the one with you.” Heart on sleeve, ultra-romantic and therefore doomed, it simmers to a frenzied finale so fiery the entire string quartet spontaneously combusts. Possibly.—Matt James
