Bells Atlas Shares New Single - N C A T

The Oakland based band, Bells Atlas has released a new single entitled, N C A T!

With a full length and two EPs released since forming in late 2012, Oakland-based pop-soul band Bells Atlas are gearing up to drop a new standalone single, “NCAT.” The track release comes timed with the Bells Atlas’ upcoming run of dates with the WNYC/NPR program Snap Judgment serving as the house band during live recordings.

Attempting to neatly describe the sounds that Derek Barber (guitar) Geneva Harrison (drums, percussion, keys) Sandra Lawson-Ndu (vocals, percussion, keys) and Doug Stuart (bass, vocals, keys) produce together is no easy task. Kaleidoscopic and richly layered, each new foray by the band expands the wide, colorful sonic palette from which they paint dazzling, vibrant structures from.

"Nothing Comes After This (NCAT) is about the feeling when you know a relationship has run it’s course. All of the little things have added up to something so big that they have eclipsed the light that the relationship once brought. It touches on feeling both empowered and heartbroken, because change is rarely easy."

New Beat Jams EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

From its opening moments DOG, the new EP from Beat Jams, lures one in immediately. The hypnotic, deep-churning, bass-driven beats and Carolyn Wayne’s bewitching vocals comingle in a sometimes riotous, other times seductive, danceable manner. The five-song collection feels both grimy and infectious, a potent punk-garage resin that sticks in your head and feels freeing. Beat Jams will be opening Louie Louie's record release celebration for their debut LP Friend of a Stranger this Friday, February 10 at PhilaMOCA, along with Dark Web.





The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Punk/Metal Artist: Mannequin Pussy!

Congrats to Mannequin Pussy for winning The Deli Philly's Readers'/Fans' and Overall (readers/fans + jurors) Polls for the Punk/Metal category! There are few emerging bands that can match the energy and ferocity of a live performance from Marisa Dabice, Thanasi Paul, Kaleen Reading and Colins Regisford. The band also released one of the best Philly albums of 2016 in Romantic (Tiny Engines), which was our November Record of the Month. "Mannequin Pussy’s ability to transition between melody and dissonance from track to track is mesmerizing." The quartet will be performing next in Philly on February 24 at Johnny Brenda's as part of The Trevor Project Benefit. 

We also need to mention Pinkwash, who placed second in the overall chart, and Soul Glo, who was runner-up in our readers'/fans' poll and third overall in this category - well done guys and gal!

 





Best Emerging NYC Folk/Americana Artists: The National Reserve, Margaret Glaspy, Bailen + 11 more!

Our Best of NYC poll for Folk and Americana artist ended yesterday and the winners are in! 

READERS' POLL WINNERS: THE NATIONAL RESERVE

Emerging New York City folksters, The National Reserve, who won the "popular vote," are mixing things up in the NYC scene by delivering a dose of much needed southern twang. Merging blues, rock, folk and country, their 2015 EP, "Easy Does It," is a solid slice of Americana, enriched by powerful and expressive vocals. Lead singer and guitarist, Sean Walsh, has this sort of storyteller voice that will rope you in and make you believe you are at a Honky Tonk in Nashville. Judging from their impressive 2016 live record, this is the kind of band you need to see on a stage, and you'll have the opportunity to do just that on February 16 at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. (Lea Phillips)

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Folk/Americana songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

As you SHOULD know by now, there is also a winner of the composite chart for each category tackled in our polls. The composite chart also takes into account the votes of the local jurors (mostly bloggers and local venue bookers) who picked all the nominees in our list.

Sumptuous songwriter Margaret Glaspy is the winner of this category's overall poll - we covered her already many times, and her album 'Emotions and Math' made it in our "Best NYC Records of 2016 List" in our latest print issue.
