August 2014
Dead Native
"Dead Native
"
mp3

Dead Native's self-titled sophomore album has an overall cosmic feel starting with the cover but building through out in the sound. The band blends echoing elements of psych rock, shoegaze, mototik, and pop. There is also a blues under current, but it is toned down from their 2013 debut, Keep It Strange". The adventure on the new album builds through out the tracks, but the most effective cosmic track has to be "Traveling". The 9 minute epic space journey seems built to put anyone into orbit. It is followed up by the one of the heavier tracks, "Clean Kill", that trudges through muddy fields of throbbing guitars. The album closes with an anthemic flourish with "Respite" with all instruments soaring to a close. This may or may not be a concept album, but it does truly feel like a complete listen that was meant to be played track by track. Dead Native's new album will be released on Sept. 2nd.


This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Snowmine

Snowmine unveils new song "Columbus" + releases LP "Dialects" in February

We've been fans of Snowmine for a while - so much so that we featured them on the cover of our NYC issue #31 in the summer of 2012. These guys' indie pop is so reassuring it almost feels like music made by (slightly sad) angels. We are excited to hear this new, truly beautiful single entitled "Columbus" from their upcoming album "Dialects," scheduled for a February 2014 release.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
