Congratulations to Groove Circus, Our New Artist of the Month

Congratulations to Goove Circus, our newest Artist of the Month! The band has been kicking around Nashville since 2012, billing themselves as "rock/funk" which doesn't neccessarily do justice to the sophistication of their sound, which is carried on languid reggae rhythms and jazz-inspired noodling, and, before a listener is completely overwhelmed by mental images of white men in dreadlocks, a perfectly executed turn into aggressive rock and roll. We particular fans the flow of "Knot Ain't Pretty," embedded below. Their debut album, "Duane's Basement," sets an overarching mood perfect for mischief sweltering summer nights, which makes RIGHT NOW the perfect time to check out this band. -Terra James-Jura

NYC artist on the rise: Domino Kirke (w/ Luke Temple) plays Baby's All Right tonight (06.01)

After releasing a lovely, orchestral-ish debut EP in 2014 entitled 'The Guard,' Brooklyn musician Domino Kirke had a life changing encounter with Deli favorite Luke Temple (whose debut album 'Snowbeat' was our NYC record of the month back in 2007, years before he founded his popular band Here We Go Magic). Luke worked on the electronic arrangements of Domino's new songs, which are featured in sophomore EP 'Independent Channel,' released in March of 2015. Temple is now also part of the live band, which you'll have the opportunity to see live tonight (June 1st) at Baby's All Right. Check out also Domino's brand new video for the EP's titletrack.

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


All Systems Are a Go w/Janelle at Bourbon & Branch June 1

Consistently throbbing basslines, vamping spacey synth, vocals filtered through the fog, and a grounding stampede of percussion, the trio of Janelle, opening tonight at Bourbon & Branch, mesh punk assertiveness with a cosmic shoegazing exploration. The byproduct is a ruminating calm with a heavier foundational bite. All systems are a go, and the music is rapidly gathering steam; however, even as the pressure rises, the band doesn’t break a sweat. A pair of FDH labelmates will be joining Janelle. The battleship of intensity that SGNLS unleashes is fueled via synth, searing shards of guitars and constant churning backend. Currently residing in Nebraska, the expanded synth-punk quintet of Digital Leather (whose new LP All Faded is due out on June 23 via FDH) headline the evening, delivering rapid-paced danceable jams. The "Kosmiche punk" of Throbbing Chakra that includes members of Lantern completes at show certain to shake off those week-starting woes. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
