We’re delighted to be working with Xenia Rubinos again!

The album Black Terry Cat by singer-songwriter and multi instrumentalist Xenia Rubinos is now in stores. With a delightfully unique and empowering sound that Spin recently described as ‘multi-genre-hyphenate instrumental textures beneath Billie Holiday-esque croons’ and inspired DIY to declare, ‘once Xenia Rubinos begins to sing, nothing else matters’, the talented Rubinos uses her soulful voice to traverse an array of genres from R&B to Hip-Hop to jazz and beyond, all of delivered with a New York punk-funk abandon.

The album finds Rubinos assisted by longtime drummer Marco Buccelli, who produced the album, and Jeremy Loucas as engineer. The three worked an average of 16-17 hours a day for five months to complete the record which is named after ‘a giant black scraggly cat’ that surprised Rubinos one cold night in Brooklyn.

‘The album’s thick beats and jarring jazz riffs are as challenging and complex as the political and pointed lyrics they underscore’ – NPR, #11 in Top 50 Albums of 2016

‘A lot of albums this year were unique, or had a strong message, or were highly accessible. Black Terry Cat was one of the few that was all three’ – Brooklyn Vegan, 10 Overlooked Albums of 2016

Local support comes from Arctic Turn. Arctic Turn is an alternative seven-piece spearheaded by multi-instrumentalist and song writer Philip K. Marzouk. With influences ranging from Everything Everything to St. Vincent to Chance the Rapper to Roger Troutman, they always manage to create something unique with each track. Expect layers of harmonies and big crescendos.
