Interview with Jeff Prystowsky from The Low Anthem


The Low Anthem dug their heels deep into the New England folk rock music circuit with cleverly crafted musical arrangements and a well-articulated sound that vaulted them into an all-inclusive global kudos. This trio turned quartet stands at the forefront of an abundant arsenal of off-beat instruments, which they employ to resonate the musical byproducts of their inventively framed themes. On the brink of their inaugural U.S. headlining tour, Jeff conversed with us about hitting the road, new additions, the weight of kinship and a followup record. The Low Anthem will be touring New England through 17-24.

Deli: Can you talk to me about the European Tour you guys just got back from?

Jeff: Sure. European touring is really great for an American band, at least speaking from my own experience. We’ve had just a great time in Europe. We have been over there four times now and each time has been really special and we’ve had great shows. On this last tour, we played a lot of great theaters, like Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London, which is one of the most beautiful theaters I’ve played in. As well as the great music hall in Belgium called AB and a great one in Amsterdam called the Paradiso, an old converted church that's now a music venue. It makes it so much easier to put on a great show when you are playing in a venue that has a certain character to it, you know? It really helps for the show and for the performance. We’ve had great tours in Europe and we will be going back again in August to play the festival season there.

Prizzy Prizzy Please Release Show

On April 20th, Joyful Noise Records will be releasing the latests effort from Prizzy Prizzy Please entitled Chroma Cannon. A couple months months ago we gave you a sneak peak with the track “Large Hadron Collider”, and now we bring you the track “Lost”. This track demonstrates the sonic diversity that PPP put in play through out the album. Mixing high-energy, compulsive electronics, with laidback horns and falsetto vocals, it is a fascinating track.

Prizzy Prizzy Please will be celebrating the tomorrow night (April 16th) at Beat Kitchen with Sass Dragons before heading out on a nationwide tour.


Chicago Music Project

What is not to love about Chicago Music project and cmpTV? They have asked me to share this video with everyone, and I am happy to support this great Chicago-based organization.


NYC Artists on the rise: Keepaway

There probably isn't a better moniker than Keepaway for this Brooklyn band on the rise - their music bounces with a childish delight, addicting in the way of their namesake game, somehow both sadistic and good-natured. The three-piece uses samples, synth, guitar, driving percussion, and howling harmony to create their tunes. There's plenty of blog buzz for their track "Yellow Wings," a simultaneously dark and infectious rocker garnering a 9/10 by perennial tastemaker Pitchfork. But besides this, they've gotten minimal press; comparisons to Animal Collective and Isaac Brock abound in blogs, but the truth is they stand on their own. They're about to release an EP called Baby Style on Lefse Records, paired with a show celebrating the record at Mercury Lounge May 18th. But sooner than that, they are playing to a sold-out audience at Music Hall of Williamsburg with The Whitest Boy Alive on April 21. I saw the band at Zebulon recently and their live show throttles the viewer in the amount of fun these guys have. To put it simply, they're about to be huge. - Dale W. Eisinger


Lazer Crystal @ the Hideout

I am really begin to love the “video flyers” for upcoming shows. On April 17th at The Hideout Lazer Crystal (Nicholas Read (electronics & vocals), Josh Johannpeter (percussion), & Mikale De Graff (vocals & electronics)) will celebrate the release for their Thrill Jockey debut, MCMLXXX. Lazer Crystal rests on the darker side of electronic retro-pop. Their sound hints to references of Joy Division or very early Depeche Mode, but with much more advanced electronics and layers of various elements.

The album will be officially released by Thrill Jockey on May 4th, and Lazer Crystal will be heading over seas for the month of May.
