New indie NYC releases round-up: The Qualia, Suzy Sellout, The Lingering Doubts, Greg Garing, The Young Presidents, Stuyvesant, Emily Zuzik

We sometimes wonder what the average number of records released in NYC per year is... does this city produce 5-10 records per day? We think it does, and it's The Deli's duty to cover as many of them as possible. Soooo... to meet this challenge we are using this blog entry to briefly mention a series of up and coming NYC artists who are about to release a new album.


Electronic combo The Qualia (pictured) play catchy pop that sits somewhere between Wall of Voodo, New Order and The New Pornographers. They'll celebrate the release of their EP "Memorial Gore" on July 8 at Pianos - this is a band to keep an ear on.
Gentle and playful orchestral pop quartet Suzy Sellout (picture below) will release their debut EP, “The Great Why Not?” on June 21 with a show at The Duplex (61 Christopher Street, NY).



The Lingering Doubts is a one man project serving a rather intimate folk-pop sound with occasional dreamy atmospheres that at his best sounds like a less convlouted version of our UK hero Robin Hitchcock. We also hear some delicate Violent Femmes influences in there at times. The CD release party was at Pianos on14th - in conjunction with Greg Garing's release, a local blues crooner who sounds like a sane version of Tom Waits.
On the rock-er side of things, sounding like a mix of early Foo Fighters, Husker Du, and Weezer, NJ based Stuyvesant is also celebrating a release: these guys surely know how to induce uncontrollable head-banging with their up tempo guitar pop-rock. Their full length "Fret Sounds" was released on June 14 on Dromedary Records.
The Young Presidents (also on June 14!) released their debut album "Freedom of Speech", a classic Rock'n'Roll affair with influences from the Alt Rock of the 90s.
And finally, NYC veteran pop-rock songwriter Emily Zuzik (who recently also worked on a Moby record) is about to celebrate her 8th release "The Wild Joys of Living" with a show at the Living Room on June 25. She sounds to us like a female version of Tom Petty.
