[May 16 2014 New York Times places Ferreira “squarely at the center of contemporary female pop”]
Notwithstanding its happiness or lack thereof, Night Time, My Time has done pretty well, bagging big reviews everywhere from online hipster music site Pitchfork (which gave it an 8.1 out of 10) to The New York Times, which placed Ferreira “squarely at the centre of contemporary female pop”. Its sound is smart and unpolished – Courtney Love meets Saint Etienne meets the Jesus and Mary Chain – with bold hooks, gnashing guitars and squelching synths.
Sky Ferreira has now arrived in Australia.
Her London gig lasted just six songs before collapsing under the weight of its own incompetence, but since then things have been bolstered and tightened up. Her band of skinny boys with undercuts may be a drummer short – they had to borrow one from a band in Melbourne – but they’re tight and confident.
Nearly every song starts with a buzzsaw synth before Ferreira plunges in. She does air-punching hedonism (24 Hours), angsty self-destructiveness (I Blame Myself) and pouty, pedal-to-the-metal pop (You’re Not the One) in equally convincing style. As the gig wears on and Ferreira gets more confident – she even takes her shades off – you have the feel of a project, long mired in difficulties, finally starting to fly.

Sky Ferreira has hit out at her record label for not making her new album available on vinyl and says she’ll make them herself.

Sky Ferreira, 21-year-old ascendant pop star is on doctors’ orders not to sing for a little while due to an illness affecting her vocal cords, according to a Facebook post. “Sadly, the timing will force me to miss this week’s shows with Vampire Weekend,” Ferreira wrote. She apologized to the band and her fans.
But.”People have always said I’m a drug addict, just based on the fact that I have dark circles around my eyes— which I’ve had since I was a kid— or because I come across a certain way or dress a certain way. So that’s not something that’s new. But I would be in rehab; I would not be on this Vampire Weekend tour. And I wouldn’t be able to go on stage everyday and deal with this. ”
No one actually knows what happened besides Cole and I and the Saugerties police.
Long-delayed debut album “Night Time, My Time,” out Oct. 29 from Capitol and filled with smart, self-aware, unpolished pop songs, will likely enhance her reputation further.

Police in Saugerties, New York state, slapped the couple with a litany of misdemeanour charges, including driving without a permit and possessing stolen property.

She is also accused of resisting arrest. The two musicians were taken to the nearby Ulster County jail and eventually released on bail. On Saturday night, Smith performed as scheduled at the BasilicaSoundScape music festival: Ferreira joined DIIV for a rendition of Cat Power’s Nude as the News.
Ferreira, 21, of 66 North 4th St., Apt. A, Brooklyn, faces misdemeanor charges of criminal possession of a controlled substance and resisting arrest. . Her debut album, “Night Time, My Time,” was officially announced on Friday morning — less than 24 hours before the arrest — after years of delays.
