Brooklyn has become a hotbed of interesting and innovative music by upcoming bands of all stripes and styles. With the release of “Things Of That Nature,” the pop-rock-punk outfit Black Taxi – fronted by the hyper-energetic vocalist Ezra Huleatt (also keyboards, trumpet and miscellaneous noise makers) – has joined their ranks, garnering plenty of attention on alternative and college radio stations while performing incessantly in music clubs all across the country.

Black Taxi’s infectious, well-crafted and beat-laden songs are full of rocking guitar riffs that fly off the stage and get people bouncing to the rhythms. But their tunes are not droning dance music: you can dance to them if you want to, but if you don’t, Huleatt and his musical cohorts give you plenty of animated energy to look at.
