Javelin CD release party at Santos on April 22

Electronic duo Javelin - already Deli CD of the month in May 2009 - are one of the most original things we stumbled upon recently. The band, signed to David Byrne's Luaka Bop, will be celebrating the release of their debut CD on that label on April 22 with a party at Santos Party House. These guys are getting a lot of attention, do not miss.

Ape Machine Leaks Track from Upcoming Debut


This House Has Been Condemned, the debut album from Portland five-piece Ape Machine, will be self-released on May 4th through their own Ape Machine Music.

Featuring ex-members of Slowdance Records' The Evening Episode, Grey Day Records artists Minmae, and MCA Records alumni Fenix TX, Ape Machine drives a psych-rock groove over stoner-worthy riffs and soaring vocals. It's interestingly catchy, given the slicker facets of the songwriting. Essentially, it's not your Tee Pee Records-type stoner rock, gorging itself on filthy dynamics and flaccid drumming. Ape Machine has their act together, and if leaked track "All Times" is any indication, this could become one of the more notable local releases of 2010.

Astral Planes

The Smashing Pumpkins have released the fourth (of 44) track from Teargarden By Kaleidyscope. This song may have the biggest sound of the four tracks, while massive swirling guitars filling every inch. This will be the final song in the first of 11 four song ep, Song For A Sailor. The downside of this track, and perhaps trying to write a massive amount of music in a short period of time, has to be the very simplistic and repetitive lyrics.


Rachel Sage releases 9th album

Rachel Sage just released her 9th solo album - and from listening to the new songs our impression is that her music is getting better with every release. The new album bears an art-rock sound reminiscent of Kate Bush and Tori Amos, while lyrically the songs reflect Sage’s mature sense of perspective, earned after a decade on the road, living without a true ‘home’. This past year, she made a conscious decision to reestablish her roots, solidify her relationships, and bring balance to her untethered life. The result is ‘Delancey Street’.
Rachel will play several East Coast dates in the next few weeks, an return to NYC for a live appearance at Joe's Pub on May 11.
