Buzz Alert! Teddy Sinclair is back with Cruel Youth - new EP out on 09.16

Cruel Youth is perhaps the Marvelettes stuck in a black treacle, electro-acid dream. It is the smokey allure of 60's R&B wrapped up in dark, hypnotic beats and dripping with the power of a femme fatale. After premiering track "Mr. Watson" a few months back, the all-female trio fronted by Teddy Sinclair (FKA Natalia Kills), is set to drop an EP this month. If the first single is any indication, the EP is sure to be lead by Sinclair's soulful vocals and biting lyricism, deliciously paired with hazy instrumentals and sampling that makes the group's pop-soul tracks sound driving and even "avant" at times. Keep a lookout for Cruel Youth's EP dropping Sept 16th, and in the meantime listen to their single below.-Olivia Sisinni

Baby Shakes play Berlin on 9.3

Baby Shakes have been perfecting their jangly power pop rock and roll since 2004, and in 2015 they self-released their long awaited second full length Starry Eyes. Its spirited pop melodies combined with its gritty and raw punk attitude are enough to appeal young rebels in the market for party time, while carrying on the tradition of celebrated vintage acts such as The Ramones and The New York Dolls. The quartet’s layered harmonies and poppy vocals shape their fun summery vibe with simple lyrics that celebrate the freedom and light heartedness of youth. Baby Shakes just finished playing some shows in China and Italy, and will be performing at Berlin on September 3rd! - John Honan

New Track: "same fucking line" - NAH

NAH, a.k.a. Michael Kuhn, has been working on a full-length album, Michael, for the past year. As he gets closer to the finish line, we are treated to a dope-ass new track in "same fucking line". His rhythmic diction gets your blood racing before slyly laying down a hot groove and sucking you into his vortex of sound. Come be invigorated by the one-man band when NAH opens for Mykki Blanco on Thursday, Sept. 15 at PhilaMOCA! (Photo by Emily Burtner)





Arc Iris tour the US and UK and EU + talk about gear on Delicious Audio

Arc Iris was started by Jocie Adams (formerly of The Low Anthem) as a solo project in 2012 before enlisting the help of Zach Tenorio-Miller on keyboards and Ray Belli on drums, and in 2014 they released their genre bending debut that was influenced by everything from folk and country to jazz and cabaret. Their upcoming album Moon Saloon takes on a darker and more mysterious atmosphere, while continuing to use bold classical arrangements that make their sound unique. Their complexly composed songs feature a wide array of instruments and tender vocal harmonies that shape the band’s ethereal sound. The band is about to leave for an over a month long tour in the US and Europe. In anticipation of Moon Saloon's release on August 19th via Bella Union, our friends at Delicious Audio asked the band's keyboardist, Zach, about the band's gear and creative process - see link below.

The Deli's Record of the Month: Gabriel Royal

Regulars of the Bedford L stop in Williamsburg will recognize Royal as the cello-wielding busker whose sweet sound floats wistfully over the cavernous train station. His debut, self titled LP captures the live set's melange of quarter-note triplets and mellow tenor vocals. Opener “G Major Suite” finds Royal crooning manifesto couplets like, “Let's just make one thing this clear.” “Say It's Right” and “Past the Flowers” continue the dulcet pace with aplomb; only “Morning Baby” and “So Glad to See You” depart from the baroque-soul formula, marrying delicate balladry to angst-driven lyrics like “I'm about to lose my mind” and a dropping of the F-bomb.
