An (almost) all female bill at Cake Shop on 02.26: Nan Turner, The Fancy, The Roulettes and Care Bears on Fire

Guys and girls who like chicks who play in indie bands (i.e. 100% of our readership) might be interested in heading out to Cake Shop on Saturday to check out this bill composed almost entirely by female musicians.
4th: The Roulettes (top picture)
Saucy ladies play indie rock with punk attitude
3rd: Care Bears on Fire  (bottom picture)
Teen pop-punk doesn't get better than this -
2nd: Nan and the One Night Stands
Nan is the "mother" of Olive Juice Music and drummersinger in Lo-Fi heroes Schwervon!
1st: The Fancy
All female orchestral pop treat ruined by the only guy in the bill (just kidding, we are just envious actually).



Ezra Furman & The Harpoons "Hard Time in a Terrible Land"

We mentioned awhile back that Ezra Furman & The Harpoons will be releasing a new album this Spring, but now we have the first single from the album. Mysterious Power is due out April 5th, and the band will be hitting the road with the lovely Tristen following 6 shows at SXSW. Here is the track "Hard Times in a Terrible Land".

The Chicago stop on the tour will be 4/23 at Subterranean.


Battles to release new album "Gloss Drop" in June

Tyonday Braxton departure didn't slow down NYC electronica masters Battles, who just announced the follow up to their best selling debut full length Mirror, out in 2007. Check out an old Deli interview with the band from 2010, before they blew up, here.


UNIVOX TV Returns w/Tales from the Graveyard Apartment

The new installment of UNIVOX TV brings you tales from beneath the graveyard (apartment) and the recorded debut live performance of “Red Flower”. You can catch the real deal Saturday night at JB’s w/Do You Need the Service? and The Better Letters. Enjoy! - The Deli Staff


What Beach House Show Tonight? Reading Rainbow at The Ox Feb. 24

From the jangly, thump-thump backbeat of Mystical Participation’s “I Will Wait” to the dancey subtlety of “Always On My Mind”, the lo-fi chants of Reading Rainbow are warm with undertones of surf and 60s nostalgia (think Drug Rug, but more fuzzed out). A two-piece sensation, these Fishtown natives won the heart of Pitchfork with their latest release Prism Eyes, while deepening fan’s appreciation for their straightforward romanticism and catchy hooks. With all the buzz surrounding Everton and Garcia, it’s hard not to hum along with “Underground” and “Cut in Two”. Reading Rainbow’s redefinition of the quasi-garage noise pop meets lo-fi aesthetic possesses its listener by way of earnest orchestration and sugary sweet (but not sickening) lyrics that linger long after sung. Get dreamy with Everton and Garcia at The Ox with Lower Dens, Adventure, and R.u.an.if.u.R. (BTW: I hear that it’s the “official other show” to be at tonight. ;o) The Ox, (you should know by now or ask a friend), 8pm, $5, All Ages - Dianca Potts
