Mad electropop scientists Superhumanoids performs new album at El Rey Theatre 10/14

It seems only yesterday that the Los Angeles trio Superhumanoids sculpted cane sugar citadels in the EP "Parasite Paradise", after their new wave adrenaline debut "Urgency" in 2010. When The Deli last spoke with the band, singer/guitarist Cameron Parkins admitted to indulging in "our more pronounced production traits," remixing tracks from Local Natives, Xiu Xiu, New Beat Fund, and more. Then in 2013, Superhumanoids went molecular and built tones from scratch in the charged LP Exhibitionists, only to mutate their sophomore game two years later with the confident electropop nightwalk Do You Feel OK? At this point it's pretty clear that Sarah Chernoff's voice goes well with everything — even copious amounts of gamma radiation.

So it's not just that we like Superhumanoid's diverse and uniquely superhuman sound.

We really like Superhumanoids' shared devotion to secret-formula serums, and occasionally exposing their friends' tracks to mutagenic chemicals.

We like that they're throwing a homecoming party to end their Fall Tour, with Blackbird Blackbird and Rush Midnight on Wednesday, 10/14 at The El Rey Theatre.

But what we like most about Superhumanoids: their songs are always free to stream online. Seriously. - Ryan Mo

Rush Midnight Releases Sexy Video for New Single, Plays Glasslands Tonight

It's about time someone realized how sexy bubbles can be. Rush Midnight's video for latest single 'In Your Room' pairs sexy ladies with Brooklyn synth-pop crooner Russ Manning for a very special bubble bath. It's one of his smoothest songs yet (as former bass player for Twin Shadow, he should know a thing or too about smooth pop jams), and should get you hyped for his upcoming self-title debut, due out May 27th. See him when he plays tonight at Glasslands Gallery for more of his special kind of late-night sexy charm, and watch the new video below. Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


Rush Midnight to release debut EP + kick off mini tour

When Rush Midnight’s lead singer Russ Manning croons “the music starts to creep back in” on the band’s lead single, “The Night Was Young Enough,” it is as much a celebration of youth as it is a declaration of synthpop’s unexpected elasticity over the past decade. With a voice that evokes new romanticism and a video that feels like “Let’s Get Physical,” slowed down and bohemianized, Manning (former bassist of Twin Shadow) continues indie-electro’s move out of the mumbly moodiness of every Washed Out copycat into more sensual, soulful territory indicative of fellow-Brooklyn acts like Body Language and MSMR. Rush Midnight’s debut EP, +1, lands on October 30 via Cascine Records and a short tour kicks off at the Studio at Webster Hall (NYC) on November 9th.- Brian Chidester
