Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

Keeping up what can only be described as an impressively relentless touring schedule, Brooklyn’s Dead Leaf Echo are taking a break of sorts to appear on television. You can catch the Premiere of Episode 4 of The B-Sides NYC Sessions featuring the Brooklyn dream pop quartet today (8/28) on NYC Life and anytime after that online here.

Filmed at Littlefield in Brooklyn, the hit cable show features interview by Host Kristen Korvette. Additionally, select music videos are presented that reflect the common sound and vision of our scene. Dead Leaf Echo then will continue their rigorous touring schedule which takes them through Pennsylvania, New York, Boston, Ohio, Milwaukee and Chicago before heading to the west coast for more dates. Their latest EP "true.deep.sleeper" has been getting rave reviews and the band has now begun work on their second full length album. The current 10" EP which is available now on Moon Sounds Records benefits from the sonic touches of Monte Vallier (Weekend, Wax Idols,) and mastering engineer Joe Lambert (Deerhunter, School of Seven Bells). Fellow New Yorkers can catch them live at Pianos on 9/3. - Dave Cromwell

Electro-horror NYC twin trio Wolvves - who blew our minds at our recent B.E.A.F. fest in June with a show at once sexy, edgy, grotesque and punchy - just unveiled this video for single 'White on White' (streaming below) that's further proof of their uncommon talent for conjuring up musical and visual nightmares. Blending jungle with industrial, religious chants, and Hip Hop, the song takes goth atmospheres to a new level, enhanced by a video full of S&M and horror imagery that's nothing short of stunning.

Maggie Rogers is a quirky 20-something who considers her songs to be creatures and her banjo to be a trusty sidekick. Fueled by movement and loss, Maggie’s music seems to have grown up alongside her, each album more intricate and more sophisticated than the last. Perhaps the Maggie who self-released her debut “The Echo” back in 2012 was less acquainted with heartbreak, the art of profanity, and the “blood ballet” that relationships can often be. However, we’re happy for the life and for the learning between her first record and her latest— ‘Blood Ballet’ is a near-perfect articulation of full-bodied pain, and that pain makes for some lovely sounds. Read on to hear what the folk singer has to say about her inspirations, her experiences, and her latest release.

We've been obsessed with avant-indie duo Buke and Gase since we first saw them live at tiny Ditmas Park venue Sycamore back in 2008.  We instantly decided to put them on the cover of the then upcoming issue of The Deli NYC - and recommended the band to take that opportunity to change their name, which at the time was "Buke and Gass" (yeah...). They didn't listen to us, but eventually (2012 circa) proved us right by switching to "Buke and Gase." They are not exactly an emerging band anymore, but they should be considered a model by any up and coming artist for their consistent development of a personal style and powerful live shows.
They just released this new single 'Seam Esteem' (streaming below) and announced a West Coast tour that will bring them to Music Hall of Williamsburg on October 10.
