There is a hidden hotel in Brooklyn, built on candy.
Master room at the Patch House in Brooklyn.
The Patch House has had it’s door open to indie artists for around a year now. With secret locations in Brooklyn and Austin, they only house recording artists. There’s no concierge or room service in this unsuspecting brownstone, but tucked inside amongst a seemingly endless supply of Sour Patch Kids, are the most comfortable beds the artists who stay there have likely seen in a few weeks. There’s also a recording studio that’s been graced by the likes of Dr. Dog, Saint Motel, Robert DeLong and most recently, Mansions on the Moon.
“A seemingly endless supply of Sour Patch Kids.”
Typically reserved for independent artists out on the road, I stayed with LA based Mansions on the Moon as they made The Patch their home during their CMJ 2015 experience. They were busy hosting a handful of studio sessions and candy-eating competitions while they played four times, including headlining performances at Webster’s Hall, Piano’s and The Bowery Electric.

Dojo Zine rolled through to get turnt on Sour Patch Kids, talk about animal noises in music, and clown with house photographer Vito Fun before MOTM’s Sun Rocks LiveStream show. They also snagged a few photos.
