((Other Passengers)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Other Passengers are a new band that have been playing all over town and have gotten our favorite NYC blogs talking. Their music has been compared to Jesus and Mary Chain and Joy Division, but that's just because it's hip to give a shout-out to those two bands when any music is tabbed as "gloomy." It's true that Other Passengers have a darker sound than say, The Thermals, but since when does a bass line have to get you down? The band members are fans of Can, Sonic Youth and Pink Floyd, and these influences can certainly be heard in their hypnotic brand of post-punk psychedelia.

Any fan of The Occasion and Inouk will probably also be into these guys. Other Passengers are a chaotic and complex band that you probably won't "get" the first time around. But then again, what worth getting has ever been gotten right away?
