The Last Royals releases album "Twistification" in January 2013

The Last Royals are two gentlemen out of Brooklyn who bonded (on a musical level) in 2010. Since then, singer/writer/producer, Eric James, and drummer,Mason Ingram, have been pouring their hearts out in song. Their upcoming record, “Twistification,” due out in January of next year, takes listeners on a quick-paced, joyful joyride. “Winter Waltz” is a short overture that contrasts with the remainder of “Twistification,” transitioning from melancholy to an eruption of bouncy synth-driven verses, defining the cheerful nature of the record. Upbeat highlights include “Friday Night,” “Wake Up,” and single, “Only the Brave,” which is currently available to the public. Mid-album, the tempo relaxes with the lush “All Over Again” but accelerates to the power- electro-pop “Good day to Be on the Radio.” The Last Royals will be amping up for tour in the fall and probably have a few plans up their sleeves for a record release fit for rock royalty. A 3 song teaser EP will be out on October 2nd on iTunes via Ooh La La Records. - Meijin Bruttomesso

The trio combines catchy synth lines, effects laden vocals and the squeals and pops of circuit bending into a tightly focused cyper punk assaults. Alien Trilogy will deafen audiences next at XPO 929 in Bushwick on September 29. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).

An end of summer folky dream: Mountain Man

Planted firmly in the roots music of American folk, Mountain Man shoots up from the salt of the earth and into the high, wide atmosphere with delicate harmonies and spirits as wide as the Mississippi. Their three voices have the strange effect of sounding close enough in range to fool you into thinking their magic is issuing from a single being, not unlike another downhome female powerhouse, First Aid Kit.

The trio of Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Randall Meath recently opened for Feist, and are working on the follow up to their debut album, 'Made the Harbor". - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


MNDR celebrate release of 'Feed Me Diamonds' on 08.30 at Tribeca Gran Hotel

If you're a Duran Duran fan, you may want to check out the NYC artist who is currently touring with them: MDNR's debut record 'Feed Me Diamonds' is a sweat-stained roller-coaster mixing chilled electro grooves supplied by Peter Wade, alongside sultry bombshell vocalist Amanda Warner. The Chelsea loft-ready group has been releasing singles since emigrating to New York from Oakland back in 2010, and are set now to embark on their own dates, where towels and energy drinks are highly recommended.

Join them in saying goodbye to the summer for their album premiere party this Thursday the 30th at the TriBeCa Grand Hotel. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
