March 2016
My Gold Mask
"Anxious Utopia
"
mp3

Gretta Rochelle and Jack Armondo working on the dark electro-pop sound of My Gold Mask since 2009. On their latest album, dropping today, March 4th, on Moon Sounds Records, Anxious Utopia, the duo may have finally found perfection. It may be the addition of James Andrews on production, but most of the songs on the album were written by Armondo and Rochelle. This album is a mixture of dance pop in the vain of Carly Rae Jepsen and dark gothic pop of Siouxsie Sioux. Rochelle is powerful and commanding through out with Armondo and Andrews providing her driving and infectious club ready tracks. Anxious Utopia is My Gold Mask clearly firing on all cylinders.


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

Hey Anna plays Mercury on 9.24, tours with The Boxer Rebellion in the fall

Can’t say goodbye to the warm summer breeze and cool ocean waves? Just put on those headphones and turn up Run Koko, Hey Anna’s sunny, nostalgic indie-pop album from 2015. In just a few seconds, a reverb-drenched guitar will open up the sky, spacey synths will sparkle like sun on waves, drums and bass will paint the horizon with a delicate, eclectic groove, and dreamy mezzo vocals will flux and flow like the sea - and if you need help visualizing that look no further than the video for opening track "Island." We are streaming below their darker one (and set in a more familiar city environment) for shoegazy single 'Anaphaze.". Get a taste of the band's soothing soundscape on September 24 at the Mercury Lounge, before they sail off on a three week, fall US tour with The Boxer Rebellion.


Crushed Out premieres new video "Love Howl"

The newest bare-knuckled single/video combo from Brooklyn-based duo Crushed Out, "Love Howl," delivers blaring, bluesy garage rock reminiscent of powerful bands like Jack White's side project Dead Weather. The track lives up to its name, with vocals yelping their way through fuzzy guitars, and a primal drumbeat. The video is DIY-ish but drips with animal magnetism, pairing the tune with images of mystical, half-human creatures losing themselves to their mating calls. (Why humans don't do mating calls by the way? Let's bring them back, NYC!) Be sure to catch Crushed Out at their Le Poisson Rogue album release show on September 28 with High Waisted, Caged Animals, and Prima. -Olivia Sisinni

Silverteeth relocates to Newport, RI and releases self-titled EP

After nearly a decade in Brooklyn, prodigal son Bill Bartholomew is returning home to Rhode Island, together with his band silverteeth.  Alongside this relocation to Newport's tiny but powerful music scene, they also released a self-titled EP, and it feels like the two may be correlated thematically. The project contains guitar-centric, no-nonsense alt-pop that opts for a tight, well-oiled sound. On the record, Bartholomew's voice and guitar each drip with sentimentality, and stir the powerful emotions that occur when going through a major life event, such as a move back home. Silverteeth played a EP release show on July 8 at Aurora in Providence, which should the first of many New England shows to come. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber


Elison Jackson to release new EP and play The Press Room on 7/16

On their latest EP Silver Sounds: Hallucinations,  Elison Jackson, a band split between Philly and New Haven, CT, added an extra layer to their already (very) psychedlic sound, by dropping a record that resembles a psychedlic experience in of itself. Each track on the EP is distinct in genre, thus providing a true "trip' through different kinds of music.  On "Ghost Fucker," they kick-off with a forebodingly minimalist psych-rock song, but then immediately shift to loud guitar-rock on "Thru the Trees." From there they go from folk-pop to psych pop moments, to finish off with a sludgy folk rock song entitled Wal-Mart. Elison Jackson recently released trippy visuals for "Ghost Fucker," and you can catch them at The Press Room with People Like You on July 16.  —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
