EZTV is a New York City-based indie band who toe the line between past and present, with a keen ear for left-of-the-dial experimentation that never lets the songs hew too far into pastiche and genre nostalgia. Mostly recently the band released High in Place, which was recorded on a tape machine purchased from a Lower East Side Studio that was going out of business. Many of the band's foundational inspirations -- the Feelies' upstart jangle, the upside-down pop architecture of Arthur Russell's power pop band The Necessaries, Shoes' aching harmonies -- are back in play on High in Place, their sophomore album, though new instruments and feels abound throughout. Produced and engineered by the band themselves, a baby grand piano rings and 12-string acoustic guitars shimmer throughout the album, recalling the clear-eyed production techniques of Jeff Lynne.
B-Side is BRIC TV's live in-studio music series and screening, featuring performances from emerging and established musicians on Thursday evenings – free of charge. The in-studio seating is very limited and first come, first served. RSVPs do not guarantee entry and are used solely for measuring attendance. These performances are open to the public, however our studio space is limited. For this reason, the performance will be broadcasted on the Stoop simultaneously.
