Dead Till Tuesday CD release party at Public Assembly on 10.06

Dead Till Tuesday, recently winner of the "Citymeals" Battle of The Band (a fundraising event involving a competition between emerging artists), is celebrating the release of their new EP "What's That Sound?" with a show at Public Assembly on October 6. The band is the brainchild of Joe Pepitone (although it performs live as a trio), and produces rather chilled electronic pop with big choruses somewhat reminiscent the melodic electronic scene of the 80s (think a slightly darker and mellower version of Erasure). The EP was actually produced by Mark Saunders, who worked with Erasure, The Cure and Depeche Mode among others. There will be an open bar at the show from 8 to 9 pm - we know you want to know that!


Dynasty Electric releases song featuring YYYs Brian Chase

"Electric Love" is the new single from Brooklyn band Dynasty Electric featuring special guest Brian Chase of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs on drums. Catchy, high-energy, and with a punky edge, the song perfectly encapsulates Dynasty Electric, a Brooklyn duo who have patiently perfected their electro-rock sound through years of experimentation in the studio and stages throughout the world. Featuring Jenny Electrik's sexy lead vocal, the song was originally written whilst producer/saxophonist Seth Misterka and YYY's drummer Brian Chase were on a duo tour in Australia. Check it out here. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).


I'm Turning Into plays Don Pedro on 10.01 and Deli CMJ party on 10.23

The ambiguously (and excellently) named I’m Turning Into play angular post-punk that’s rife with catchy melody and little quirks. The band has discovered a way to merge jagged guitar riffs and up-beat, playful rhythms with infectious vocal hooks. The song “I’m Going” stands out as perfect example, opening with cutting-yet-melodic guitar lines before exploding into a chorus that you can only imagine a room full of sweaty, dedicated fans singing along to. There’s a bit of that sloppy 90’s indie sound in there too—sort of like the Archers of Loaf meeting Devo or even the Dickies. The band also has a penchant for playing around with rhythm and noise; the 12-minute song “Don Keehotay” is a cacophonous—yet glorious—mess of scattered drums, weird psych harmonies and feedback-laden guitar. Basically, I’m Turning Into have taken the best parts of indie, punk, and post-punk, added their own idiosyncrasies, and created some amazing tunes. Don't miss their Deli CMJ party at Spike Hill on Saturday 10.23 with tons of great indie bands! Full schedule here. - Bill Dvorak


Bing and Ruth CD release at le Poisson Rouge on 09.28

Bing and Ruth play mellow instrumental music that can be described as a blend of ambient, classical, orchestral and pop. Tonight (09.28) the full 11 member formation is going to celebrate the release of the band's 3rd CD with a show at Le Poisson Rouge , available digitally and as a double LP - as a side note we just realized that when releases will be digital only (because that's going to happen of course) double albums will disappear! They will be just very long digital releases... Anyway, for the many stressed out New Yorkers out there, this show might actually have a therapeutic, calming and meditation inducing effect. it's October, we may all need it.


Five O'Clock Heroes back with a new album after 4 years

Five O'Clock Heroes announced the February 15th release of their third album "Different Times". Although the Anglo-American group has always been based in NYC, this marks the first time their music will be properly released in the United States. Their previous two efforts, "Bend To The Breaks" (2006) and "Speak Your Language" (2007), were confined to the shores of Europe and the UK. As a preview of what is to come they're making the single "Rough Boys" available for free - check out the stream down here.
