Blues rock quartet Quarters of Change set to play Knitting Factory on 05.24

Cha-ching! NYC’s Quarters of Change continues to score with some wickedly addictive songs. Since the release of their 2018 eponymous EP, the group has been keeping their work rate in high gear with a trio of singles. Each tune is more refined than the next and displays the band’s vibrant blues-rock style—bass lines slip and slide, guitar melodies cavort, snares crack, and crooning voices harmonize. The smooth players will be further affirming their entry into the NYC music scene by playing Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on May 24th. Check out the sleekness of “Feathers” below. - Rene Cobar

Blues punks The Sweet Things play The Bowery Electric on 05.24

Playing punk music makes sense for folks hailing from the East Village, but what about blending it with good old blues rock? Well, The Sweet Things formed in 2015 with the intent to deliver precisely that sound. Drawing inspiration from ‘70s arena rock monsters like The Rolling Stones, the band compounds blues elements with each member’s previous punk rock backgrounds. Screaming guitars at the start of the group’s latest single “Almost Faded” blend excellently with deft keys that would make Chuck Leavell proud. The fuzzy bass and the powerful drums drive the song forward at full steam and give it the edge that makes it contemporary. The single announces their May 24th debut album In Borrowed Shoes, On Borrowed Time and the band is gearing up for a tour of the U.K. starting in June. The party is just getting started for this group of new yorkers, don't miss the local leg at The Bowery Electric on May 24 - Rene Cobar





Fresh Buzz: Cheap Synths sign to Rough Trade

The dance-inducing rhythms of NYC’s Cheap Synths reverberate the style and edge of alternative dance bands like Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem. The group could easily have been pulled from a DFA Records catalog, and yet their sonic varnish shines brightly and has landed them a publishing deal with Rough Trade. The electronic rock duo has released their first mixtape yes yes yes with its first single “Devastate” flaunting noteworthy grit and glamour. A heavy bassline accompanies a slick guitar riff while synth stabs and pads contribute to a complex aural texture. The accompanying video is the powdered sugar on top of this sweet dance-rock cookie. Check out the video below. - Rene Cobar





Verdigirls play Trans-Pecos 05.18 to mark new EP release

Sisters Catherine and Anna Wolk have played music together as Verdigrls for years now, and The Deli once again takes great pride in covering another new release from one of New York's rising indie pop acts. Verdigrls' new EP Small Moves comes out on May 17th; the title track, which we've featured below, has the Wolks' voices echoing over a repeating synth, the squeaking of a cello, and a minimal drum track. The track's detached feeling matches the subject matter of the lyrics, which go into the ennui of being at a party where everyone else is having fun but you. Verdigrls will mark the release of Small Moves at Trans-Pecos on May 18th; Anna Altman and Den-Mate will perform on the bill as well. - Will Sisskind
