August 2014
Dead Native
"Dead Native
"
mp3

Dead Native's self-titled sophomore album has an overall cosmic feel starting with the cover but building through out in the sound. The band blends echoing elements of psych rock, shoegaze, mototik, and pop. There is also a blues under current, but it is toned down from their 2013 debut, Keep It Strange". The adventure on the new album builds through out the tracks, but the most effective cosmic track has to be "Traveling". The 9 minute epic space journey seems built to put anyone into orbit. It is followed up by the one of the heavier tracks, "Clean Kill", that trudges through muddy fields of throbbing guitars. The album closes with an anthemic flourish with "Respite" with all instruments soaring to a close. This may or may not be a concept album, but it does truly feel like a complete listen that was meant to be played track by track. Dead Native's new album will be released on Sept. 2nd.


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

Frogbelly and Symphony release debut LP "Blue Bright Ow Sleep" + announce UK + Ireland tour

With their sound and attitude at times reminiscent of great '90s UK band Tindersticks (whose music was too dark and decadent to make an impression in the US), and at others veering towards some kind of operatic math cabaret, Brooklyn and Sheffield, UK based band Frogbelly and Symphony just released their debut album "Blue Bright Ow Sleep," which was recorded in NYC by legendary producer Martin Bisi. Fronted by NYU-trained violinist & keyboardist Liz Hanley, the record emerged in its final form through a dense touring schedule mostly concentrated in northern Europe. That's where the band will return in a few weeks, in occasion of their April tour of the UK and Ireland.

Free Download: "Pickwick Average" - Loose Tooth

“Pickwick Average” is the first sampling offered from grungy punk quartet Loose Tooth’s upcoming debut LP Easy Easy East, which will be released on April 21 via Fleeting Youth. With a downhill tumbling percussion start, the song settles in a jogging balance of agitation. Then, there’s a shift, as the track instrumentally unpacks stretching out through its conclusion.

Brooklyn psych rockers Shana Falana announce debut LP and tour + play Shea Stadium on 04.04

Shana Falana have been a part of the Brooklyn dream-pop fabric for a while now. Evolving and perfecting a uniquely nuanced sound through constant touring and single releases, the band is now ready to release their debut album “Set Your Lightning Fire Free” on April 7 via Team Love Records. Recording at Woodstock’s Isokon Studios with producer Dan Goodwin, core members Shana Falan (vox, gtrs, keys) and Mike Amari (drums) enhanced the group's sound with Jane Scarpantoni on cellos and Matthew Cullen on sitar. Debut single “Heavenstay” (streaming) hit all the right sensory marks for a classic dreamy escape. In it, Shana’s vocals are more suggested than literal, as they soar over deep guitar notes and tom tom heavy drums. Brand new single "Go" (premiered today through the Village Voice) raises the energy level with a harder charging drum pattern, while chiming guitar textures evoke the original psychedelic sound of 60’s trailblazers The Byrds classic track “Eight Miles High.” The band will embark on a two month tour beginning next month, and play Brooklyn’s Shea Stadium on April 4. - Dave Cromwell

Rebuilder To Release Debut Album on 4/3 at O'Brien's, presented by Bishop and Rook

Boston pop-punk rockers Rebuilder will be releasing their debut album, Rock & Roll in America, on April 3 at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston, MA. Local punks Choke Up and Bundles will be joining-in on the raucous fun, along with solo artist/effects loop-maker extraordinaire Sun Dog. DJ Mateo Williams (WMBR’s Late Risers Club) will supply some tunes in between sets to save you from having to awkwardly interact with fellow concertgoers while the bands set up. Oh, and did I mention the festivities will be brought to you by our pals over at Bishop and Rook? Well, now you know; and knowing is half the battle.

If you’re curious about what the new Rebuilder material sounds like, you can stream “The National Bohemian”, the first track off of Rock & Roll in America, here.

Paperwhite returns from SXSW to play Baby's All Right tonight (03.25)

It's getting there folks, our patience will soon be rewarded by a sun that's actually warm and a breeze that's actually enjoyable! OK, we aren't there quite yet, but we'll all have an opportunity to actually experience these summery feelings at Paperwhite's show tonight at Baby's All Right. Sister and brother Katie and Ben Marshall (recently featured on Spin as one of the 22 bands to see at SXSW) create electronic pop that has the power to "emanate" summer (or something). Not the unbearably sticky NYC one by the way, but the sublime summers we remember as half dreams from our teen years. Play this, or single "Magic" (streaming below) and you'll realize what we are talking about. Tonight they'll be playing the Indie Shuffle showcase, sharing the stage with Maxo, Moon Bounce and Novelty Daughter.
