Vivienne Eastwood release video for 'NONS,' play Brooklyn Bazaar on 5/28

Premiering their latest video “Nons” exclusively here on The Deli, dreampoppers Vivienne Eastwood present a gazey journey of internal discovery.   The track’s slow motion groove, rising bassline and dramatic guitar melody would seem the perfect match for David Lynch’s newly revived Twin Peaks franchise.  With a languid minor chord feel, images of sea creatures in fish tanks are superimposed over pensive looking band members.  Mysterious notations like the wording “Friedrichsthalii 1999” appear momentarily before disappearing under the aquatics.  Using cinematic techniques like split-screen allows for dual image storytelling and a multi-view experience.  While angelic background vocals create lush emotional peaks, it’s the calmer moments that ultimately provide for deeper reflection.  Vivienne Eastwood will be playing at Brooklyn Bazaar on 5/28 with Surf Rock Is Dead and Melt. - Dave Cromwell


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!

Debut Gibbous Moon EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Psych-rock power trio Gibbous Moon has released its debut self-titled EP. Enchanting vocals vaporize around a ruthless rhythm section and rifftastic guitar. Dealing in beguiling blasts of heavy, the unit appears in control, while volatile tendencies lie in waiting. You can catch them tomorrow night at Connie’s Ric Rac, sharing the stage with The Mojo Machine, Disoriental, and Roxy Rollz.


Vaelastrasz's “Glyph of Inspired Hymns” is weird, eerie, and good

For the past year or so, Fairfax's Vaelastrasz has been quietly developing their electronic composition skills. The releases have always seemed promising, and “Glyph of Inspired Hymns” gives a lot of reason to think that Vaelastrasz is starting to really come into their own as an electronic musician. The album art, a black and white photo of an old church, is at once nostalgic and haunting, an aesthetic which meshes well with the antique, dystopian ambiance given off by tracks like “In Memory of the Third” and “Cathedral I”. Interestingly, behind the ambiance often lies post-rock grooves, keeping the tracks from sounding repetitive.

In all, some very good music produced on this album, looking forward to hearing more from Vaelastrasz.
