BLKKATHY represents at SXSW with their fine R'n'B

A band made up of two ladies both named Katie sounds like a project in cute, right? Don't be fooled. Local minimal electronic/lyrical R&B act BLKKATHY builds up layers of blissful vocal lines and clicks them into place with the right beats and ace production. It’s music made for pulling up old wounds, soothing, and dancing. The duo released an EP, “Dem Bones”, with Deep Ellum Records and have extra tracks streaming on their website and soundcloud. Their recordings are filled with well-crafted lyrics amongst synths and inventive textures. BLKKATHY will be representing NYC’s surge in electronic innovation this week at SXSW. - Leora Mandel

Public Access T.V. announces debut EP on Terrible Records + plays SXSW

Public Access T.V. - a band that many consider a potential "next big NYC thing" because of their young age and vague resemblance to The Strokes both in the attitude and songwriting departments - just announced the release of their debut "Public Access" EP  on Grizzly Bear Chris Taylor's label Terrible Records. They took the opportunity to unveil single "Metropolis," streaming below, a melodic mid tempo that quotes a series of classic pop masters from David Bowie to The Beatles. The EP will be out this spring, just after a US tour that will include a series of shows in Austin for the SXSW festival.

Brooklyn's Highly Suspect take their bluesy alt rock to SXSW

In the 90's, Seattle produced two REALLY bluesy bands that went on to become two of the most popular acts from the grunge wave: Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. In today's Brooklyn-centered rediscovery of that west coast sound, we haven't heard a lot of bluesy overtones - until Highly Suspect came on our radar. This young group (who made our latest list of Best Emerging NYC Bands) has the chops to pull off this kind of heavyness through a punchy interplay between their tight power trio set up and Johnny Stevens' powerful but expressive lead vocals. Their latest single "Lydia" (streaming) is getting a lot of attention, the band is going to bring it live to the Austin crowds at next week's SXSW Festival.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Alt Rock songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Born Cages announce LP "I’m Glad I’m Not Me" + play SXSW

New York anthemic pop-rockers Born Cages are releasing their debut album, "I’m Glad I’m Not Me," on June 2nd, just in time for your summer mix tape! If you’re a weather optimist (stuck in a hopeless NYC winter) and are already compiling those rooftop jams, you'll find some noteworthy candidates in their debut EP "The Sidelines," featuring five mostly upbeat, soaring, and heavily melodic tracks - which will also appear in the full length. Born Cages is one of the first bands to join new NYC label Washington Square, joining The Hold Steady and former The Virgins singer Donald Cumming. They will co-headline with Dreamers on a full US tour beginning on March 4th heading to Austin for SXSW, and tour again this summer with the 2015 Vans Warped Tour. - Leora Mandel
