Queue bring dreamy indie rock to Mercury Lounge 01.03

Earlier this year, Queue released “Float Away,” a single that accurately sums up the band both in sound and name. The melody seems to glimmer through a mist with reverberant guitar echoing alongside airy vocal harmonies. “Float Away” was the first track the band released after finding a united home in New York, members previously spread out across Philadelphia and D.C. It’s safe to expect a fair bit more from Queue in 2019 with the group currently spending time recording at Brooklyn’s Degraw Studios. But you can catch the band early in the year opening for CUTTS at Mercury Lounge on January 3. – Cameron Carr





New Man Like Machine EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

3X3 is the new EP from Man Like Machine, which is available now via Seventh Wave Records. A rhythmic thrust pushes one out into the cosmos. The underlying pressure of the moment factors into the roaring yearn of the vocals. It's a brooding, enveloping sound that commands your attention.





A playlist of NYC artists playing at the New Colossus Festival

NYC has been orphan a live music festival dedicated to emerging bands since 2015, when the CMJ Music Marathon called it quits. Notwithstanding its flaws, CMJ was an important appointment for the NYC music industry, and here at The Deli we've been missing it real bad. Which is why we are curious and excited to see some mainstays NYC promoters trying to build something similar, even though - at least for now - restricted to six venues in the Lower East Side/East Village area.

The fest in question, called New Colossus Festival and scheduled for March 7-10, is presented as "a new annual event taking place the weekend before SXSW [...] featuring 100 bands from all over the world," and it's organized by longtime pals Mike Bell (Lorimer Beacon), Lio Kanine (Kanine Records) & Steven Matrick (Kepler Events/Pianos). Like all events of its kind, it can be accessed via badges on sale here.

We made a compilation of the NYC artists that are currently booked to play the New Colossus, including Nicole Yun of Eternal Summers (who recently moved to NYC and has a solo album coming out) and the new project by Kip of Pains of Being Pure at Heart called The Natvral - stream it below.





New Track: "Eternal Leviathan" - High Reeper

Higher Reeper, the sophomore album from High Reeper, is scheduled for release on March 22 via Heavy Psych Sounds. Its menacing lead single, “Eternal Leviathan,” trudges and rumbles with a looming feel of heavy consequences. The impending destruction of society by a greater force is on the horizon. What remains in its aftermath will be revealed on the band's forthcoming record. (Photo by Marco Mosti)





Miss Grit's "Talk Talk" is a Masterclass in Quiet Rage

“Talk Talk,” the new single from NYC-based outfit Miss Grit, was devised in an empty dorm room as frontwoman Margaret Sohn pined over the fatal idealism of modern romances, and this mis-en-scene that informs the track’s creation is immediately apparent in her powerful-yet-restrained vocal delivery. While the track is bolstered by analog synth arpeggios that crescendo at the chorus, the strength of “Talk Talk” is built upon Sohn’s halted lyricism, a performance that carries a palpable, visceral frustration at “the unrealistic view of love that society and movies ingrain into girls’ minds.” Sohn’s quiet-storm vox against cataclysmic synthesizers creates a soundscape that is both emotionally raw and dynamically energizing, a perfect blend of introspection and catharsis; here’s hoping the rest of Miss Grit’s forthcoming Talk Talk EP maintains the same balancing act.
Miss Grit’s debut extended play drops January 11th. Until then, stream their new single below.
