FWWtW and The Bones of J.R. Jones at Park Church Coop Saturday Night!

Concerts in old churches can be hit or miss. Many a punk band has left such sacred chambers flummoxed at the muddy cacophony summoned by their set. It's the harmonic resonance of the lofted ceilings and stone arches that once warmed the vocal stylings of Gregorian monks. This Saturday in Greenpoint you can witness for yourself what happens when the somber folk rock of Food Will Win The War and the twang-grass folk of The Bones of J.R. Jones swell sound into those stony heavens. Concetta Abbate of Park Quartet will warm up the room. It will be an intimate night of amazing sounding music in an amazing sounding venue. Get your tickets here.

Michael Rocketship brings his quirky side to Alphaville on 11.18

Browsing through Michael Coleman/Michael Rocketship's rich discography is a little like getting to know a musical Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Under his real name, Coleman releases refined and clean sounding contemporary jazz records where he plays piano and synths. But when he uses the moniker Michael Rocketship, he unleashes his darker and quirkier side through an imaginative bedroom pop that incorporates math, psych and lo-fi elements. With three EPs released in the last year alone, Rocketship seems to be the dominant ID taking over Michael's musical presonality. You'll have a chance to get to know this side of him in person at Alphaville on 11.18. Check out single 'Down the Stairs,' streaming below.





Maitri premieres music video for "Reminder" off new LP "After Glow"

Maitri have just released a new LP called After Glow, from which they've also released a new music video for the track "Reminder". "Reminder" -- like the other songs off of the album -- captures the band's experimental blend of indie rock, jazz, funk, and dream pop. The song builds from a tense groove about the drudgery of life into an explosive soundscape which ends in a final discordant, fading synth chord. The music video also showcases the emotion behind the track: Vocalist Caroline Davis, with a painted face, stumbles through cityscapes and forests, before dipping her head into a pond and then letting herself succumb to the heat of the Sun. Watch the video for "Reminder" below. - Will Sisskind

Rough Trade's Best Albums of the Year: Big Thief, Cigarettes After Sex, The National and Parquet Courts

If you ask us "how's the NYC scene doing these days?" we'll respond with a mixed feelings kind of answer. But even though the local scene is undoubtedly going through some rough times (mostly caused by the excessive cost of the city and the extreme gentrification of Williamsburg), it has still managed to express some very fine music in 2017. Or at least that's what Rough Trade believes, since they just released a list of the Best 20 Records of 2017 that features four albums released by NYC based artists:

Big Thief's Capacity (on the cover of our Winter 2016 issue of The Deli) placed in 4th position. 

Cigarettes After Sex's self titled debut LP placed in 6th position. 

- The National's Sleep Well Beast placed in 14th position

Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts' Milano placed in 16th position.

Four out of twenty, that's A LOT, congrats NYC scene!

Here's a YouTube playlist of these artists' most popular songs from their 2017 releases.
