A Deli premiere: Michael Rocketship's video for "Smith, St. John and Pierre"

Michael Rocketship’s debut LP is an adventure in tension. The Meaning of Love juggles playful synths and vocals with an intimate exploration of alienation, a theme grounded in the artist’s return to Brooklyn from the West Coast. The album’s premiere video for “Smith, St. John and Pierre” is a great example of Michael Rocketship’s aesthetic given its jaunty synth-driven melody alongside a cardboard puppet that travels through a collage of history. Enjoy this taste of The Meaning of Love now and catch the release show on 04.06 at The Nest. – Amanda Ogea


Michael Rocketship brings his quirky side to Alphaville on 11.18

Browsing through Michael Coleman/Michael Rocketship's rich discography is a little like getting to know a musical Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Under his real name, Coleman releases refined and clean sounding contemporary jazz records where he plays piano and synths. But when he uses the moniker Michael Rocketship, he unleashes his darker and quirkier side through an imaginative bedroom pop that incorporates math, psych and lo-fi elements. With three EPs released in the last year alone, Rocketship seems to be the dominant ID taking over Michael's musical presonality. You'll have a chance to get to know this side of him in person at Alphaville on 11.18. Check out single 'Down the Stairs,' streaming below.
