NYC electro hip hop: Hot Sugar

Get pumped – The Muscle Milk EP is here!  It’s hard to find instrumental music that carries weight these days, but thanks to NYC’s Hot Sugar you get the brick in your stomach that you always wanted.  However, instead of feeling weighed down and sleepy, this brick lifts you with effervescent beat-trickery, catchy melodies, and funky synth work.  If Kool Keith went mute and was forced to make instrumental music, it would be Hot Sugar.  Go download the Muscle Milk EP right now and let the expansion process begin. - brokeMC


From the NYC Open Blog: Treasure Teeth release EP

Treasure Teeth released their new EP "Sell Your Gold"at Public Assembly on September 9th. This is - reportedly - a US-UK duo based between NYC, Miami, and London (somebody must travel a lot!) making aquatic womb-like experimental glitch pop with hip-hop and R & B inflections. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here). The Deli's NYC Open Blog is powered by The Music Building.


Alexa Wilding releases 'Painter' music video

Starting from a place of pastel-soft fantasy, moving at times to hard-bitten reality, chanteuse Alexa Wilding paints an evocative and haunting self-portrait on new record 'Coral Dust.' Striking notes familiar to fans of Feist, songs 'Fire' and 'Movie' provide a churning momentum pulled over a whirlwind of detail supplied by producer Tim Foljahn's deft slide guitar and keyboard outlines. Check out her new video for first single 'Painter' below, where the singer play with balloons and swings in a loveseat in a world painted pink, and see her when she plays Rockwood Music Hall Stage 2 on Monday, October 1st. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


The Denzels introduce Admirable Traits + open for The Vaccines

Here's to the start of a sweet day for The Denzels; on this September 11th they're taking part in the first steps of a new Brooklyn-based record label, Admirable Traits, whose first release will be their second EP 'Easy Tiger'. Revealed in January, the five track-set of fuzzy garage-pop romance floats quite casually between surfing harmonies and noise, working its best moves right at the heart of this gap, where young love tales stay away from cheese, and dramatic synth lines can come glistening through without any of it feeling too nostalgic or too.. gleeful. Taking the release celebrations to the stage, they'll be opening for The Vaccines this evening at The Music Hall of Williamsburg.


The Gypsy West plays Bowery Electric 9.15

Brooklyn based trio The Gypsy West will be tearing up the stage once more at the Bowery Electric along with Jody Porter (guitarist from Fountains of Wayne) & The Black Swans and Baby Wolves. Known for their wildly energetic live performances and complicated instrumentals, the psychedelic/ grunge rock group has been picking up steam with a successful show at Bowery Electric last August and an impressive performance at the Northside Festival in June already under their belt. Break out your war paint this Saturday, September 15th for what’s sure to be a raucous time!! Get your tickets here. - Chelsea Eriksen
