Conveyor celebrates full length release at Mercury on 06.28

Brooklyn’s avant pop band Conveyor presents a sonic palette composed by an intriguing blend of styles and influences, combining the percussion of afropop with moody electronics and rhythmically patterned vocals. Many of the songs in their upcoming self-titled album are the result of a collaborative writing process, resulting in intricate arrangements reminiscent of Animal Collective's more melodic experiments. Time signatures out of the 4/4 mold also reveal musicians not content to rely on the safety of familiar patterns. The band will celebrate the release of their debut full-length (under Paper Garden Records' wing) with a show at The mercury Lounge on June 28. Recommended! - Dave Cromwell

Violens debut new video for "When to Let Go"

We've always had a weak spot for Violens. This brand new song and video "When to Let Go" marries their light shoegazer sound with some kind of new-romantic aesthetics from the 80s.

Found in our digital submissions: Isle of Rhodes

Like My Morning Jacket and affiliated supergroup Monsters of Folk, Isle of Rhodes succeeds in combining the musicianship of groove-based jam bands with a folk core that reminds you these guys don't just know how to play, they've got something to say too. For the band's just-released debut full-length 'All Rivers and Oceans,' singer/Rhodes obsessive Rob Farren digs these dreamy statements into some seriously washy reverb treatment, drawing on topographical references to illuminate the thrill of new love in 'Young Love.'

But his heart really seems to lie in the freedom of life off-shore. From opener 'Oceans' (streaming) to the stomping 'Eyes Like The Sun,' Farren paints a world of surf and sand where one experience melts into the next, and innocent pleas against change get washed away with the next tide. Wherever Isle of Rhodes take you, it's usually an elevated place to match the screeching alto Farren has mastered.

Check out their new full-length here and see the band when they play at Don Pedro on June 23rd. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets) - Isle of Rhodes submitted their music for review here.

Daryl Shawn plays all NYC Boroughs in one day for Make Music NY

Daryl Shawn is one of those acoustic guitar gems that can seize you and drag you along with him in an erratic dance in the pick of a string. Blending African, Andalusian and European classical influences acquired in his early years of musical exploration, San Francisco born Daryl Shawn's vocal compositions bring an unsettling touch to the soothing sounds of his guitar solos. It is clumsy in a Syd Barret kind of way, delightfully disharmonious, and only gets better as the stories unfold in angst and precipitation. The tempos clash as the voice nonchalantly tells the colorful tales of a West Coast white boy, while the instrumentals get carried away in an exotic adventure of their own. Currently based in Brooklyn, Shawn is working on a range of new material which he will be presenting during a tour of the US West Coast this fall. But for now he's training for a personal musical marathon which will take him to play 5 shows in NYC - one per borough - during Make Music NY on June 21. He picked a hot day for a marathon! Watch out for updates, and in the meantimes, treat yourself to some of his work, both vocal and instrumental, on the website. - Tracy Mamoun

The Deli Kansas City is born!

Deli Readers,

In our plans of constant expansion of our coverage towards new music scenes, admittedly Missouri wasn't the top priority, but since we found some seriously committed partners over there (the awesome people at the Midwest Music Foundation) we decided to launch a Deli Kansas City web page! While working on the site we have actually discovered a very lively scene with some really cool bands. Go ahead and explore it!
