Gorilla Vs Bear: video: Beverly – Madora


November 2014
Buscabulla
"Kitsune
"
mp3

"Debut EP ""Kitsuné"" by Puerto Rico/Brooklyn band Buscabulla (Spanish slang for 'troublemaker'), is one of the most beautiful and intriguing records to catch our ears in quite some time. In its four tracks, the band effortlessly blends electro, industrial, world music and dream/pop into a very enjoyable final product. Opening track ""Caer"" alternates gritty guitar loops with liquid synths, while singer Raquel Berrios' voice charms and soothes with minimal pop melodies sung in Spanish, but that seem to bear some kind of Japanese influence. Metelé is a more traditional electronic, atmospheric ballad reminiscent of Air but still dominated by an Eastern sounding melody, while ""Temporal"" - the most experimental track in the EP - blends the clanging of a mechanical loop with what sounds like a synchopated, finger piano sample, while distorted guitars swells drive the song through its tension and release cycles. Final track ""Sono"" - one of the strongest on the record - recycles an idyllic, 60s sounding flute sample and surrounds it with a funky drum pattern and all sorts of distorted and percussive sounds - all very organic sounding - while Raquel indulges in a simple melody that seems inspired by nursery rhymes. Buscabulla's ""Kitsuné,"" with its incredible array of ethnic influences filtered through a Western musical lens, represents as close as it gets how today's NYC music should sound."

Spirit Family Reunion

Exclusive Announcement: The Felice Brothers and Spirit Family Reunion Co Headline The Chapel 10/3

Well, this is one of those shows you aren't going to want to miss. We could dress it up and say it in a million fancy ways but the fact is that on October 3rd, The Felice Brothers and Spirit Family Reunion co-headlining a show at The Chapel in San Francisco is kind of a big deal. Not to mention this announcement guarentees a promising and potent Indie Americana rock show.

The Felice Brothers are embarking on a massive fall tour after releasing their full length album, Favorite Waitress.

The Deli Magazine San Francisco is the first to announce this show and we're completely excited to share the news. Make sure you order advanced tickets through The Chapel's website! We hope to see you there!!

Spirit Family Reunion wins the cover of the Deli NYC's Spring issue 2013

Here at The Deli second place is not always for losers. In fact, for the third time in our history, the band that placed second in our Year End Poll for Emerging Artists will get the cover of our Spring edition - the "Best of NYC" issue (check out last year's issue in pdf here). This is happening because the winners (in this case Foxygen) were already featured on the cover of a previous issue, and a quarterly mag can't really have the same band on the cover twice. So congrats to Spirit Family Reunion, whose exuberant fiddles and banjos are leading the roots music revival that in the past few years has been threatening NYC's indie rock supremacy. They are the first straight forward Americana band to win our Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists - signs of the times?
