Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

Don't miss tonight's tense show at Pianos with The Deli's 40th issue's cover band Sunflower Bean, Shilpa Ray, Japanese phenomenon Bo Ningen and many other awesome bands. By the way, we all like to have our choices validated, and the Brooklyn trio got some serious love from NPR, check it out. Here's the video of our favorite song (at least among the few ones they have recorded) '2013.'

Hey! Don't you want to read about my exciting day 2 of the Crummy Music Jobs festival? Don't you want to know about what an amazing time I'm having and all the amazing bands I'm seeing that you're missing out on at the Crap Making Jerks festival? Of course you do, I mean, my word is law after all, and everything I say should be taken with complete seriousness. No funny business here at the Country Music Jazz festival. - Keep reading Jake's report for Day 2 of the CMJ Music Marathone 2014

We liked Brooklyn power trio NoPop a lot the first time we stumbled upon their music, and the guys are doing their best to confirm that first impression. They just released this new track just in time for tonight's The Deli's DIY/Psych/Garage CMJ 2014 showcase at Spike Hill - a show they will open at 6.40 pm. Come check them out, we'll be there!

This is my first time covering CMJ. I’d attended in the past, but never with an actual agenda. It’s overwhelming from the get-go. Having an under-established or unclear schedule is like being in a life raft with no oars, in the middle of the ocean. Alone. I made an all too familiar mistake from step one, getting in the artists’ line to pick up my press badge. It was a bit of a wait, but I met a cool dude from a band called Echo Bloom, who calmed my nerves (his band's music excels at that too, see track below), as I was afraid of missing the first showcase I wanted to see, only to find out at the end of said line, that I didn’t have to wait at all. The press booth line was just about non-existent, and the performer booth was kind of spilling over, giving the illusion of two separate lines. What the hell. This kind of set the tone for the day. - Keep reading JP Basileo's CMJ Music Marathon 2014 Day 1 report.

Since it was my first CMJ, I didn't know what to expect in the beginning. As it got closer to the week I slowly began to realize that it's more corporate than I expected. I don't really know that much or care about any of the industry events or any of the 'big' shows, so I'm going to seek out as many great bills as I can and go from there. I will say that despite my grievances against the corporate shmuck-holes, my first CMJ night was pretty good; I saws four great bands consecutively at two venues and honestly, couldn't have been happier. - Read More
