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."

Beef Oven at The East Room 11.26

A band has to be good when their name makes you giggle a tiny bit. Beef Oven is fairly new on the scene, having released their 6-track EP "Gimme the Blood" just this past June. Recorded by none other than Ben Spinks (of Supermelt fame), the EP grinds out some fuzzed-to-the-max jams with just the barest trace of blues and surf. Beef Oven is among the lineup for the second edition of 2 Jung 2 Dye's Book Swap this Wednesday night (aka Thanksgiving Eve.) Phantom Farmer and Shoot the Mountain round out the bill; bring a book that you would like to share with a total stranger in hopes that it will bring the same joy into their life as it did your. Wednesday's show starts at 8pm at The East Room. Dig our favorite track off "Gimme the Blood" to get in the spirit. -Terra James-Jura

Hotel War's New Music Video "Devil's Breath"

Hotel War dropped this little nugget last week: the official video for their single "Devil's Breath." The song is off their EP "Nashville Nights," released earlier this month. The video plays out like a grainy, kung-fu B-movie, with the band gallantly saving an innocent woman from the clutches of some sort of Hell's Angels Don (they drive home the point that: goatee + pony tail = clearly up to no good.) The fight choreography is shit, but the song is great. Actually, the whole EP is one wallop of screeching rock and roll, and definitely worth a listen (check it out HERE.) The trio are already back in the studio cooking up their next batch of badassery, and will be appearing on December 19th for The Stone Fox's 3rd Annual Christmas Caroling Show. -Terra James-Jura

Show Review: Fly Golden Eagle at Queen Art Collective 11.15

October 14th marked the release of Fly Golden Eagle's "Quartz," a 26-track odyssey inspired by 1973 art-flick "Holy Mountain." A month later, after an LA release and an epic fall tour they brought it home to Nashville. The Deli caught the last show in a weekend full of performances, a stacked lineup including Faux Ferocious, Chrome Pony, and Clear Plastic Masks put on at Meth Dad HQ Queen Art Collective. Read more about the evening by clicking HERE, and listen to the scaled-down, stand-alone accompanying Fly Golden Eagle release "Quartz Bijou" below.
