best NYCSmoke album yet, "Musique Noir,"
the band's 3rd full-length release, is named
after Statland's favorite Film Noir style.
"I like to think of my music as a black
and white movie, telling a story frame after
frame," Statland says. "I want my
music to be like a short story, with a beginning,
middle and end. I want it to tell a story,
convey some sort of truth." These songs
are those of a NYC street soul survivor in
the vein of Lou Reed, The Replacements, and
The Who. NYCSmoke just gets better with each
release. Statland's voice is the engine of
a freight train on the loose that will never
stop. Grab your copy today!

Statland and mixed by Don Fleming (Sonic Youth,

"....an honest, unflinching salvo from
an undeniably talented artist"
-The Herald Times

its combination of straight ahead rock instrumentation
