Concert Highlights from the CMJ Music Marathon 10/15/2015

Loose Buttons at the Alphabet Lounge
Based in New York City, Loose Buttons performed good-time pop rock at the Alphabet Lounge.

The Ruen Brothers at East Village Social
Brothers Henry Stansall (left) and Rupert Stansall are from Scunthorpe, England, but were honed in American roots rock like the Everly Brothers and Roy Orbison. They mixed these influences with British skiffle in an acoustic set at East Village Social.

Sunbeam Sound Machine at Leftfield
Nick Sowersby (right) led his dreamy quintet, Sunbeam Sound Machine from Melbourne, Australia, through a pillow-soft pop set at Leftfield.

French Horn Rebellion at Pianos
French Horn Rebellion are Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, two brothers born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and currently residing in Brooklyn, New York. Backed by locals vocalists and musicians, they delivered hot beats and 1980s-styled dance music -- with an occasional blast of French horn.
