Deli CMJ Electro/Avant Pop Stages at The Delancey 10.18 with Wildlife Control, Dynasty Electric, Dinosaur Feathers, Il Abanico, Cultfever + more


This is going to be the longest list of this whole series of announcements. On Thursday, we're once again taking over both floors of The Delancey with upstairs, a line-up of electro up-and-comers from all sides of the spectrum and downstairs, some creative pop gems fitting under the Avant Pop label, for a total of.. NINETEEN acts! So enough chit-chat, let's get to the list, because that is sure going to take up enough space.

Opening the (free!) upstairs show, Thomas Simon's ghostly mixes, followed by the bizarre folk-tronic experiments of Max Horwich's Sewing Machines, Cultfever's chaotic outputs and Railbird's more intimate creations. Next up, we've got three out-of-towners, i.e SF's Maus Haus, Philly's electro/hip hop artist Lushlife, and finally, Anomie Belle, from Seattle, co-headlining the show with NYC's own Dynasty Electric. Then, taking it to the later hours of the evening, Ducky, and Drop Electric (coming from DC).

Downstairs, our two headliners will be Dinosaur Feathers (top picture) and Wildlife Control, who both released this year a delicious new album, second for the former and a first for the latter. We've also got, on this stage, three acts coming from Los Angeles: openers American Royalty, shoegaze-pop band Letting Up Despite Great Faults, and Kiven, who will be closing the show. Add to this Columbian transplants Il Abanico, Conveyor, whom we covered in our last print issue, the catchy jams of five-piece Modern Rivals and finally, Santah, coming from Chicago, and.. I believe WE'RE DONE! In the pictures: Dynasty Electric & Wildlife Control.

Santah "Teeth"

Santah has released a video for their track "Teeth" which comes from their forthcoming EP You're Still A Lover. The ep will be released on Oct. 16th.

You can catch Santah on Oct 25th at Township and at Burlington on Oct. 26th.


Santah You're Still A Lover

Over the labor day I found myself camping with my family at the same camp in Wisconsin as Vivian and Stanton McConnell of Santah. It was a wonderful coincidence especially when she performed a Neil Young song by campfire. We talked briefly about Santah and she is extremely pleased with the band's new ep. The new ep is called "You're Still A Lover" and will be self-released on October 16th. Our first taste of the ep is a track called "Indigo", an pseudo-anthem fitting for summer's end. This is the band's follow-up to their 2011 debut LP, White Noise Bed.

You can catch Santah opening for California Wives on Sept 12 @ Lincoln Hall.
