Mega Bog moves to NYC, plays Shea on 04.30 and Rough Trade on 05.05

The impressionistic musical project of Seattle songwriter Erin Birgy - who recently moved to NYC - Mega Bog has been releasing intimate records flirting with folk, lo-fi and ambient since 2008. Her latest, entitled 'Gone Banana,' is a sleepy yet provocative LP that blends Joni Mitchell's delicately jazzy inclinations with Syd Barrett's dreamy, child-like preference for the unfinished draft. Check out our favorite song 'Gone Banana' below, and don't miss her upcoming live shows at Shea Stadium (04.30) and Rough Trade (05.05), after which she will leave for a US tour.

Stolen Jars play Mercury Lounge on 04.30

New Jersey's avant-folk-poppers Stolen Jars must have put a spell on us last fall, when we decided to put them on the cover of the CMJ 2015 issue of The Deli, since, judging from this adorable video of their single 'Kept,' they have friends in the magic business. Don't miss the band at Mercury Lounge on April 30th.

Saturday Night Sounds: Rugby - "Bag of Bones"

Throwing another new track your way for our Saturday Night Sounds. Experimental pop group Rugby have just debuted a new video for their track "Bag of Bones," which is the second to come off their upcoming summer release, Worldly Wise.

The black and white beach set video is an endearingly romantic face to the track, which at times is intimately quiet and at other times, barrel rolls at you with full force. "Bag of Bones," both as a song and as a music video, was written, recorded, edited and directed by Rugby themselves, so the personal aspect is fully prevalent. The track takes a more acute stance than the first release off the album, called "Breakfast Crew."

Look out for Wordly Wise due out this Summer, and until then, dig into this rollercoaster track below.

Get ready for some serious head-banging with Bugs and Rats

You may think that the Massachusetts three piece punk band Bugs and Rats is just noise. And you’re right. But it’s great noise. Their tracks usually start with an indiscernible, arhythmic introduction before settling into a more focused, but no less raucous, groove. The vocals often get buried under a tidal wave of furiously jagged electric guitar riffs and stop-and-drop drumming all presented to you in a lo-fi package (whose been crushed and kicked and torn, held together by some duct tape). Honestly, this is probably as close to punk as you can get without actually having lived in the punk era of the 70’s and 80’s. With simple, repetitive chords, a wall of noise so loud that it will knock you off your feet, and a brazen delivery oozing confidence and an attitude fit for Sid Vicious himself, you can expect one heck of a show from these guys. Keep a tab on their Facebook page for future shows.

Rest in Purple, Prince Rogers Nelson

Facing the actual reality that one of the most influential beings to ever walk this planet has now since left it, is a big pill to swallow. I, just like the rest of you, woke up to a series of posts all around the internet proclaiming the death of the Purple One himself, Prince. It just can't be true and there is a great deal of us (myself included) who will continue to not accept this as reality.

But it seems that as it's presently known, Prince passed away earlier this morning, found in his Paisley Park compound in Minnesota. It is reported that Prince had been dealing with complications from the flu, which is believed to have been the cause of his really f**king untimely passing.

Prince was numerically aged at 57, but essentially immortally timeless. Trying to adjust to a world without Bowie and Lemmy was hard enough, but Prince...that's where we've got to drawn the line. 

Rest in Purple, Prince.
