One of our favorite breakout bands of 2013 is Heliotropes, the Brooklyn foursome whose debut record, A Constant Sea, (Manimal, June 18), is one of the best of the year. Bassist Nya Abudu, drummer Cici Harrison, vocalist and tambourine player Amber Myers, and lead singer and guitarist Jessica Numsuwankijkul put on a fab show at this summer’s 4 Knots Music Festival at the South Street Seaport, and now they’ll be playing a pair of gigs on the last day of the 2013 CMJ Music Marathon, October 19, at Spike Hill at 12 noon and later on at 9:00 at Grand Victory for the BreakThru Radio showcase (on a great bill with Eternal Summers, EULA, and the Meaning of Life).
