You Bred Raptors? plays Galapagos Art Space 9.21

Part-time residents of the subway’s best busking spots, playing their sets to Time Square’s puzzled commuters, You Bred Raptors? (the name, a line out of Jurassic Park) is an instrumental trio from Astoria, NY with a taste for strange performances. Over an EP and two full lengths - the latest of which, Hammond, was released at the start of the year -the band deploys a rich catalogue of experimentations ranging from unique orchestrations to ambitious takes on some familiar patterns as varied as funk, metal or even celtic rhythmics - all served by a cast of drums, cello, 8-string bass & the occasional keys, bearing freakish masks from ghostface to grimacing jester. A tastefully weird, out-of-time local gem straight from the city’s underground that you can catch on September 21st at Galapagos Arts Center for Rebecca Brand's new album release show. - Tracy Mamoun


JBM plays Bowery Ballroom 9.12

JBM, the moniker of singer-songwriter Jesse Marchant, will be on tour this fall opening for buzzy British band Alt J. The tour begins tomorrow, September 12th, with a hometown show for JBM at the Bowery Ballroom. Marchant has recently expanded upon his humble acoustic beginnings with the release of his second full-length record, “Stray Ashes.” The album finds Marchant experimenting with loops, drums, and the electric guitar, resulting in a fuller, more intricate sound. “On Fire On a Tightrope” showcases JBM’s airy and majestic ambiance that simultaneously conjures a sense of warmth and emptiness. Check out Marchant and his band on September 12th at the Bowery Ballroom, and watch the video for “On Fire On a Tightrope” below. - Josh Johnson


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).

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)
