Vivienne Eastwood's undulating shoegazer is back at Sunnyvale on 07.02

Despite being now three years old, the only single released to date by Brooklyn-based shoegazers Vivienne Eastwood still manages to have heart-wrenching and mind-altering effects on us.  The track is entitled “Rose Pedals,” (with a "d"), which is either a clever play on words linking back to shoegazer music, or an hilariously appropriate typo - we experienced something similar a few years ago when one of our interns thought guitar pedals was spelled 'petals' - awww... 
With its expansive reverberation and undulating guitars, this is a song that may cause the listeners to lose track of their surroundings. If they enjoy it, they may want to regain awareness before the weekend and find their way to Sunnyvale, where Vivienne Eastwood will be performing with Teen Body and Treatment on July 2nd. - Madeleine Grossman

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


Total Slacker announces new LP 'Parallels' + unveils single “Turn on The Lights”

One of the noisiest bands to grace the cover of The Deli Magazine (back in 2014, issue #37, which also featured an interview with Todd P), Total Slacker announced today the release of their third LP, entitled 'Parallels,' by unveiling single “Turn on The Lights,” which features epic overtones, '80s and '90s references and the usual wall of guitars; a wall that, in this song - rather uncharacteristically for the band - features "holes" that leave space for mellower interludes. 'Parallels' is scheduled for an August 19th release.


New Track: "Nineteen Ninety Heaven" (Ryan Hemsworth Remix) - Nothing

Listening to the Ryan Hemsworth's remix of Nothing’s “Nineteen Ninety Heaven” shifts one's perspective. While the original, found on Tired of Tomorrow (Relapse Records), finds a delicately somber balance of orchestration and vocals, the remix creates an awakening lilt, glimmering in a youthful manner, ramped up by an escalating beat, transforming the tempo and tonal implications. Come join Nothing for their hometown record release celebration on Friday, July 8 at Union Transfer with Citizen, Culture Abuse, and Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler!

Remote Control Unite in Haunting Harmony at KFN June 29

A sinister murkiness compounded by the lure of percussive immediacy frame the dark wave of Remote Control, the latest project from Nicky Kulp (Far-Out Fangtooth, Creepoid). Male and female vocals hypnotically bounce off each other before ultimately uniting in haunting harmony. The trio brings their foreboding, night-crawling sound to Kung Fu Necktie tonight. A pair of Funeral Party Records labelmates in Nashville’s Western Medication, who bring a spring-loaded, daydreaming air with a heart-pounding push, and with a freshly released self-titled EP in hand, Australian outfit Death Bells create a steamy dream-pop landscape. The seductive, sinking-in, shoegaze-noise combination of Dulls gets things started. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita
