My Gold Mask's A Million Miles

Next month My Gold Mask will release their new ep A Million Miles (From Where We Were Last), and I final had a chance to listen to the full ep. The release will be a 12" vinyl with download, and will have four track including the band's cover of "Bette Davis Eyes". The ep kicks of with the thunderous "Ghost In Your Bed". Gretta Rochelle (Vocals, Drums) is so fierce on this entire ep, but it is especially felt on this opening track.

The comparison to Siouxsie Sioux is too easy, but so true. "I Don't Need A Reason" comes next with its defiance and pounding rhythm. The duo slows it down on "Bobbi", but show a more orchestral ability. The ep closes with the lo-fi and drum heavy cover of "Bette Davis Eyes". The ep is the bands follow-up to January's A Thousand Voices. You can preorder the album here.

NYC Artists on the Rise: Mainland Fever

Combining fresh hooks and adventurous melodies a la Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson, Mainland Fever re-process classic pop music, romanticism, chill-wave and shimmering guitars to create their own (non-lo fi!!!) psych-pop language. After a string of shows opening for the likes of Cassie Ramone of Vivian Girls and Violent Soho (Ecstatic Peace Records), the band is keeping busy in October with two shows at Crash Mansion (on the 12th) and Lit Lounge (on the 14th). They will also enter the studio to record their first 7” single with Lars Ballard of folk crooners Alaska Alaska. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).


Stacie Rosie releases double EP

The new release from NYC songstress Stacie Rosie (the "ALTER-EGO" EPs) is a double EP that sounds like a 2 headed monster... and features two saucy sounds. The first EP is electro-luscious dance/pop, while the second one has more of a 70s rock spirit. Recorded at Mission Sound In Brooklyn NY, the recordings feature an all-star line-up including James Mastro, Jeff Allen, Jack Petruzelli, David Patterson, and Jeff Lipstein, producers like David Barratt, Quixotic, Thomas Hutchings, Robert L. Smith and Aaron Steinberg (aka Captain Danger), and amazing singers including Jamaican dance hall/dub artist Garrison Hawk. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).
