NYC artist on the rise: Blood Cultures celebrates debut LP at Rough Trade 08.09

Mysterious electro-pop prpject Blood Cultures released their debut album this past month, titled Happy Birthday. It features four tracks previously released on Soundcloud, ranging from their successful 2013 single “Indian Summer”, a track we highlighted on this very blog at the time and which has now accumulated nearly 2 million plays, to their most recent single, "Detroit" (streaming below), a track that keeps faith with the signature calm, soothing falsetto vocals over sparse electronic arrangements. The New Jersey based artist will be performing at Rough Trade on August 9th, opening up for Australian rapper Allday at 9PM. – Pearse Devlin

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





Weekend Warrior, August 4 - 6

Eric Slick (Dr. Dog, Lithuania) opens for Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble and Art Feynman this Saturday at Johnny Brenda’s. Exploring and evaluating one’s internal monologue and balancing that against the openness afforded by nature, Slick finds a happy medium. While one is continuously harmonizing conceptual ideals and realities, Slick ventures into the thicket, tapping into a somber sense of key/percussive-oriented calm and peaceful acceptance. However, the mood isn’t one of resignation; there are upbeat, attitude-adjusting points, in which clarifying, melodic pop shines through. Slick leads the way to Art Feynman, a.k.a. Luke Temple (Here We Go Magic), whom recently released a new album, Blast Off Through the Wicker, via Western Vinyl, and multi-textured, thought-provoking Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble. – Michael Colavita

New Track: "Readjust" - Addie Pray

The Le Sigh just released its third compilation installment, which is available via Father/Daughter Records. In “Readjust,” Addie Pray delves into the process of moving forward and leaving the past and sometimes the people associated with it behind. While an exposed authenticity endears, the illuminating synth/percussion backing serves as a catalyst of optimistic progress. You can stream and purchase the album HERE, and a portion of sales today will go to the Transgender Law Center.





Soccer Mommy release new video ahead of album release 08.04

Contrary to her bedroom pop musical style, Soccer Mommy’s new music video is all outdoors, featuring different shots of lead singer, Sophie Allison, strolling out near the water, woods, and her car over the delightful single, “Allison”. This is one of two songs released off their upcoming album, Collection, set to release on August 4th. “Allison” and “Out Worn” both share similar aspects, an introductory reverbed guitar riff, accompanied then by echo-y, dreamy layers, but the directions of both songs evolve differently, "Allison" bringing forth blissful yet melancholic aspects, and “Out Worn” sounding more upbeat, drum-driven. Soccer Mommy will be touring this summer, which will include a show at Terminal 5 with The Districts--the Philly quartet featured on the Cover of the Deli Magazine's SXSW issue a few years back, who are also set to release their album, Popular Manipulations, the following week. Come celebrate with both bands at their show on August 16th in NYC. – Pearse Devlin
