Melkbelly plays Subterranean with Protomartyr 06.03

Chicago's noise-rock band Melkbelly will be playing at Subterranean on June 3rd in support of Protomartyr. On their 2016 7'' split release of "Mount Cool Kid" and "Elk Mountain," Melkbelly incorporates elements of industrial sludge, shoegaze and math-rock to create a burst of deftly controlled chaos. Check out the video for "Elk Mountain" below. - Ethan Ames

KISSEY releases new video for “Unplug”

Born in Stockholm and based in New York, recording artist, dancer and model KISSEY is no stranger to change. During her career, she has gone from electro-soul incarnations (“Caos”) to borderline industrial ones (“I Don’t Need Anything” and “DISTORTION”). Now, she’s back with another song that doesn’t fit into a genre as neatly, confirming a laudable inclination to think outside the box. In the video for “Unplug,” (streaming below) she appears like a modern-day Beloved (she is even pictured dragging an ax in one scene) — an ethereal apparition dancing around a rural, snowy landscape. (In case you haven't noticed, she's got the moves!) The song itself combines the dreamy drone of earlier works with a plodding beat reminiscent of the early trip hop days. Her upcoming EP, ‘Unplug the Delusional Monkey’, will be out on June 30th with Fool’s Gold Records. - Lilly Milman

New Video: Five Years Release Show - Square Peg Round Hole

The instrumental trio of Square Peg Round Hole recently shared its new EP, entitled Five Years. A rejuvenating, meditative calm washes over you, as one observes the encircling environment to blossom. Through subtle points of illumination, a beautiful vividness emerges. You can stream the album in its entirety HERE, and you can also view a video created by Vic Firth below, featuring a performance of the full album from the band's release show at the IceBox Project Space, as well as four reimagined arrangements of older Square Peg Round Hole songs. The group was accompanied by Joshua Chase Miller, Tessa K Ellis, and Anna Meadors, providing guest vocals, guitar, saxophone, and flugelhorn.

Final night of The Hum with Deradoorian, Eartheater, The Blow, Chaos Chaos + more

The final night of The Hum 2017 (a series featuring female NYC musicians collaborating live organized by LPR presents and sponsored by The Deli NYC) reserves a truly spectacular line up that must not be missed. From The Blow's synth pop gems to Eartheater's haunting experimentation, the talent on display is remarkable and absolutely in line with what we here at The Deli expect from artists active in a scene famous for its edge. On the bill also indie pop sister duo Chaos Chaos, droney vocalist Deradoorian (of Dirty Projector fame), Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto and experimental artists Ikue Mori and Clarice Jensen.

Check out this awesome compilation of the songs by the artists in tonight's bill we found on SoundCloud!
