Knitting Factory Entertainment Presents
Maybird, Gooseberry, Atlas Engine
Josh Netsky is the singer and principal songwriter of the Brooklyn/Rochester based band Maybird. Along with Sam Snyder, Kurt Johnson and Josh’s brother Adam Netsky the band self-released their debut record, Down and Under, in 2013. The ambitious, independent record caught the ear of producer Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley, Broken Bells) who approached the band to sign to his Columbia Records imprint, 30th Century Records. In April of 2016 Maybird released Turning Into Water, an EP that fuses expensive psychedelia with evocative roots rock accents. NPR debuted the video for the song “Looking Back” stating, “It’s a poignant, profoundly emotional ode to childhood, fleeting youth and chasing dreams.” In the Summer of 2016 the band spent time in Nashville, TN working with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys at his home recording studio. The new set of songs is set to be released in June and the band will spend the rest of the year on the road.
Atlas Engine's distinct blend of Celestial Indie Rock creates its own "expansive universe of sound” (The Wild Honey Pie) with “cinematic, multipart compositions that manage to be as hooky as they are sprawling, a locked-in rhythm section, and butter-smooth production” (Look at My Records). The ambitious Brooklyn five-piece released When the Compass Resets...Part 1 in the Summer of 2020, with parts 2 and 3 of their debut full-length due in early 2022.
