Thirdstory releases new single 'G Train", plays Baby's All Right on 12/18

This could be the first and last time you read about NYC band Thirdstory on the pages of The Deli. It's not like we have anything against the talented soul-folk band, rather, it's that too many people are beginning to jam with their catchy, rugged sound. The latest of their newer legion of fans appears to be none other than critically-acclaimed emcee Pusha T. On the highlight of the trio's recently released Searching EP, "G Train," they pair up with Pusha to deliver a hard-hitting track that embodies the gritty, resilent nature of New York and New Yorkers. Though T is from Virginia, he feels right at home on a song about the underside of The Big Apple. Thirdstory are on a world tour right now, but you can catch them back at home on 12/18 at Baby's All Right. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber 

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





HEALTH shares new video for "L.A. Looks"

Noise punk group HEALTH sure have come a long way since we first wrote about them during their start, and it's great to still see them at their idiosyncratic best. Their latest video off of last year's Death Magic, "L.A. Looks", is a stylistically retro take on public access television that equally exposes and pokes fun at the weirder side of Los Angeles. Consider it as an apt travel guide for for those who've yet to visit our lovely city. Proceed with caution.

 





The Nursery release postmodern video from their forthcoming LP

The Nursery have called their music “freak pop,” which is a good way to characterize their off-kilter sound. Their music is definitely catchy, but it’s punctuated by noisy outbursts and sudden dynamic shifts. The new video for “Everybody’s Famous,” a track from their forthcoming LP, fits their style perfectly.  It features numerous Canadian impersonator artists acting as celebrities, screaming to be heard from a kitschy stage. It’s an idea that raises questions about originality and the need to be noticed in an oversaturated social world, with an appropriate musical twist. - David Levy





Gavin Turek releases disco-tinged new single "Good Look For You"

Singer/songwriter Gavin Turek provides a stellar blend of rhythm and soul on "Good Luck For You", a disco-tinged groover for the modern era that puts her on the spotlight after a series of fruitful collaborations with artists such as Mayor Hawthorne and TOKiMONSTA. It's faultlessly layered soul-funk that keeps its classical influences intact, with fuzzy synth lines and strapping piano keys prancing about as Turek lends her wholesome vocal delivery.

"Good Luck For You" will be featured on her debut EP of the same name, which is not coming out until February 17 of next year. Her sole date for the remainder of the year will be at ShowGlobe Music Festival on 12/29. A slew of new tour dates are due to show up sometime soon, so keep your eyes peeled for any further announcements.





Show Me the Body announce multi-venue fall residency in NYC

In the summer of 2016, Show Me the Body released their debut album “Body War,” an electric banjo-driven sonic storm, blending post-hardcore, industrial, hip hop and math rock. That’s the record most NYC kids involved in the vital, seminal, local DIY scene - and in all likelihood, most rock critics too - will remember years from now.

The NYC born and bred trio just announced a New York show residency that will take place in five different venues across the city. This residency is presented as an extension of the spirit of their recent short film called "Ammunition", for which the band’s goal was to find and tell stories as compelling, disturbing and uplifting as they found in their own backyard of New York City. Dates can be found here, check out the video for album opener 'Body War' below. - photo by Dylan Johnson
