July 2014
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

Deli video premiere: Elika's "No One Gets Lost"

Deli video premiere: Elika's "No One Gets Lost"

Elika has a certain knack for re-making tragedy into beauty. Taking from personal tragedy and turning her experiences into a reason to persist, their latest video for 'No One Gets Lost' juxtaposes a halcyon youth against the cold realities of dangerous machinery like power drills and buzzsaws. Make of it what you will... but it certainly sounds like something malicious is happening here behind the scenes. Like a lot of their music, Elika presses on with a definite sense of optimism that shines through their stacks of shimmering keyboards and melliflous soprano. Taken from her new record 'Always the Light,' Elika is a powerful voice puncturing through pain and adversity with each new record. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

"No One Gets Lost" was added to our SoundCloud playlist of emerging NYC artists here.
