welcome to another new feature on the fp blog! each week we will review a new album coming out that we think you all might enjoy. this week…brooklyn band grooms with rejoicer.

grooms (formerly known as muggabears) is a trio consisting of emily ambruso, travis johnson and jim sykes. grooms might be another indie band based out of brooklyn but they differentiate themselves with their ability to create soundscapes that alternate between noise-pop and clean, smooth guitar and vocals. this unpredictability makes rejoicer an interesting album to listen to, and it’s sure to make for a great live show as well. rejoicer officially comes out on october 20 but is available starting today on itunes. you can listen to some songs from the new album on their myspace page, here.

psst…If you live in new york, you can catch grooms at the knitting factory in brooklyn on thursday night for the rejoicer album release party, and they’re also playing a few shows during next week’s cmj festival (check out the full cmj schedule here).
