Motion Studies open for Body Language at House of Yes on 06.21

Motion Studies’ Facebook page perfectly describes their music as “weird disco”. The musical project of Tyler McCauley is an electric dance band that incorporates post-punk elements. Their single “In Our Days” is a wildly catchy and explosive track that has the potential to tempt any (famously static) New Yorker into dancing along to the beat. Motion Studies will be playing at the House of Yes in Brooklyn on June 21st in support of Body Language. Check out their other great single “Distractions” below. - John Honan

Ohal's esoteric electronic dreams at Baby's All Right on 05.15

Ohal is the brainchild of Brooklyn singer/producer Ohal Grietzer, who specializes in etheral, often abstract electronic music reminiscent of some of those esoteric sounding 4AD records of the late '80s (from This Mortal Coil to Dead Can Dance). Of the three tracks available for streaming, we are partial to 'All Mine' (streamiing below), the more structured of the bunch, and also the only one featuring vocals. This being said, the vaguely Laurie Andersonesque  single 'Wintertime' is the one that has gained the favor of the internet fans. Ohal will be performing live at Baby's All Right on May 15th.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!



Krewella (Jahan Yousaf and Yasmine Yousaf) has released a new single called "Broken Records". This is the latest single from the duos new EP, Ammunition, which is due out May 20th. The first single from the EP, "Beggars", now has a video below.

Krewella is launching a tour this fall called "Sweatbox" and will be performing at Lincoln Hall on October 8th.


Mattress is back with a new track, "Fuck the Future"

 Mattress' low, loungey tones have been a favorite around town since he started a few years ago. Mixing the Vegas appeal of Tom Jones in a nightclub with the sensually deep vocality of Nick Cave and a bit of Jamie Stewart's eccentricity, Rex Marshall has filled a niche we didn't even know was empty. 

Yesterday, he released a new, somewhat nihilistic track called "Fuck the Future." It's sentimentally exactly how it sounds - a catchy diddy that's more about living in the moment than worry about all the crap that's coming later. 

His track release show is tomorrow at the Liquor Store with Roselit Bone and Jenny Don't & the Spurs (who are also releasing a split that night!), and his new album (recorded in Isaac Brock's studio) is due out this summer on Brock's label, Glacial Pace Recordings

Listen to the track below and be sure to get to the Liquor Store on time since Mattress opens up the night's bill.
