The Sway Machinery

 

The Sway Machinery has a unique pedigree rocking festival stages and dance floors around the world, from Timbuktu to Warsaw. The band has represented NYC culture in musical adventures ranging from the eccentric and miniature to the grandiose and sublime. The band’s 2011 release The House of Friendly Ghosts Vol. 1 featured collaborations with stars of Malian music like Khaira Arby and Vieux Farka Toure. Their most recent release, Purity and Danger, garnered a spate of critical praise and saw the beginning of the group’s association with exciting up-and-comers 3rd Generation Recordings. 

"This unclassifiable, uplifting band is led by the singer and guitarist Jeremiah Lockwood, the grandson of the renowned cantor Jacob Konigsberg, whose choir Lockwood once sang in. Lockwood’s diverse musical influences also include a nearly two-decade apprenticeship in the New York subways with the legendary Piedmont blues master Carolina Slim and a collaboration with several prominent Malian musicians which took place on a long visit there a few years ago." (The New Yorker)


The McLean Harrington Chase


The McLean Harrington Chase is an exciting new endeavor from NYC veterans Jordan McLean (Antibalas), Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) and Dave Harrington (Darkside).  The outfit is a rigorous exercise in musical telepathy demonstrated by 3 New York natives. Each member has made a unique imprint on the contemporary music scene through diverse work with myriad artists across the stylistic spectrum. TMHC invites you to come use your brain
with them.
