Friend Roulette announces release + plays Deli UN/OFF show in Austin on 03.15

Brooklyn's Friend Roulette sounds like an indie band formed by an established and constantly high Hollywood movie soundtrack composer. The band's instrumentation ranges from your regular electric guitars and drums to strings and other instruments quite foreign to the pop tradition like bass clarinet and EWI. Their music favors not exactly uplifting atmospheres ranging from the melancholic to the downright tense, but pop melodies lie in there, between the guitar and violin drones and the clarinet arabesques. Their sound is rather unique and their live shows very enjoyable, and that's why we decided to book them for our Deli UN/OFF party in Austin next week on March 15 at Rusty's (8pm). The band has recently released the first single "Earthrise" (streaming below) from the album "I'm Sorry You Hit Your Head," out in April on Goodnight Records.


Brand new from Brooklyn: Leapling plays Shea Stadium tonight (03.06)

Leapling plays what I call "impressionistic pop" - Here We Go Magic's music is one of this genre's best examples. Featuring drafts of melodies, gentle arrangements and semi-whispered vocals, this is textured, almost transparent music for the shy - or the sleepy. The Brooklyn based quartet released their debut "Losing Face" EP in January and will play Shea Stadium tonight March 06. Check out opening track "Nature Must Not Win," streaming below.


Il Abanico becomes Salt Cathedral + plays Glasslands on 03.23

Brooklyn based band Salt Cathedral (formerly known as Il Abanico) recently released a new single “Take Me to the Sea,” from their upcoming self-titled EP. Showcasing their dreamy and melodic sound, the tune features easygoing, uncomplicated lyrics, allowing a (much needed) temporary detachment from reality. Salt Cathedral recently played a show at Mercury Lounge with Port St. Willow on February 22 and you'll be able to see them live at Glasslands March on 23rd with established electro-pop neighbors Hundred Waters. - Kristyn Potter
