Cloud Becomes Your Hand is back at Alphaville on 06.09 within the Northside Fest

Demanding NYC indie rock fans who are struggling to find original, fun, and entertaining new bands should go check out Cloud Becomes Your Hand when they play live at Alphaville on Juse 9th, within the Northside Festival. The avant-post-punk (!?) collective was on the cover of our 47th issue of The Deli, and for a reason: their debut album "Rest in Fleas" was the most refreshingly fun thing we happened to listen that year, in particular single "Hermit," streaming below ("Sand of Sea" and "Bridge of Ignoramus" are pretty darn awesome too). Their live show is some kind of perfectly excuted experimental theatrical production that's tightly paced without ever falling in the traps of self-indulgence. Do not miss!

Sur Back releases new EP, "Kitsch II" + plays Baby's All Right on June 2nd

In her new EP Kitsch II,  New York avant-pop artist Sur Back - real name Caroline Sans - deeply mines the esoteric, incorporating obscure facets of many different genres into the record's four tracks. It's part baroque-pop, part new wave, and extremely avant-garde. It's sweet and melancholy, with unconventional string orchestration and an abundance of compelling, unexpected melodic twists. Listen to "Valentino" below and see the live show at Baby's All Right on Saturday June 2nd, opening for Chaos Chaos - Ethan Ames
