Garden City Movement // Live @ Elvis Guesthouse // 10.06.15

Photos and Article by: Steven Principato


Buried within a dimly lit sub-basement lounge in alphabet city, the gentle electronic beatsand soothing guitar work of Garden City Movement reverberated the subterranean cavernof Elvis’s Guesthouse if NYC. Packed to capacity with loyal followers, undeterred by an unmitigating work week, they found an escape in the warm trippy samples emanating from the cold circuits of Mac-Books and multi-knobbed magical sound machines.


Hailing from Israel, Garden City Movement brings us their machine driven brand of pacifying trip-hop that’s strong enough to tranquilize a kid on a breakfast cereal sugar binge. With a soothing aural relief on our urban shell-shocked senses, the band administered a dose of tracks from their latest EP, Modern West in addition to their two previous EPs available on BLDG5 records.

It happens to be Steven's eventual goal to be on stage IN the concert photo rather than the one taking it.
