YAASSS is a musical affirmation of one’s kinkier side, of unapologetic gratification through sex, drugs, and shisha-tinged psych rock. However, beyond neon pink fishnets and moshing through a sea of cigarettes, you’ll find a unique blend of hallucinogenic glam pop and Middle-Eastern guitar riffs (a glorious side-effect of their self-proclaimed “falafel rock” aesthetic). YAASSS is the queer carnivalesque ...

Upper Wilds are an experiment in distortion. Their debut album, "Guitar Module 2017" (Deli NYC record of the month last month) is one frenzied wave of noise going through the entire body. Once the senses accept this new experience, the lyrics can finally be appreciated. Somehow, through all the glitchy melodies come these heavenly vocals that find ...

Lillet Blanc’s music takes a hint from their namesake: both are intoxicatingly sweet, yet refreshing. The band’s execution of the dream-pop aesthetic showcases honeyed melodies, boasting Emily Rawlings’ vocals whirling through a backdrop of groovy pop stylings, and cutting through the sonic daydream with beautifully pure high notes. Thankfully, the band’s “moody songs with a lil’ sass” ...

Darkwing’s music exists in the weird crossroads of lo-fi indie rock and garage-fueled punk, an intersection featuring catchy hooks and the dankest of memes for street signs. This is the self-aware punk of the Cyber Age, the soundtrack for stoned conversations after a night of longboarding. The Deli is excited to premiere their newest single, “Big Red Heart.” ...

Def.GRLS are energy itself, a lazer-light show of heavy psych-pop madness. It’s impossible to listen to their music without feeling the grit of glitter in one’s teeth or hair.

But, just to get a hit of the glitter to make it until then, they leaked their single “Good Time” for us to premiere! Tomorrow Def.GRLS open for Andrew W.K., the party-master himself, at Warsaw.

Bermuda Angels offers half entrancing, half disturbing synth-driven art-pop that is dark and seductive, bewildering in its own way. Sophie Kadow’s chilling and dizzying vocals are tempered by the warmer, more grounded lyrical style of her artistic partner, Bermuda Jones.

Fromthe band’s self-titled LP comes the single “On The Run,” a love-song to toxicity and a loss of ...

Ian Chang redefines what it means to be a drummer. Embarking on a solo-project aside from his work with Son Lux and Landlady, Chang focuses on bridging the gap between man and machine. He uses his drum-kit to manipulate music samples in order to weave music more dense and sensuous than perhaps otherwise possible, relying on crystalline ...

Úlfur, the post-rock project of Úlfur Hansson, readily reflects the artist’s native Iceland. At times, his songs are as desolate and expansive as the country’s central highlands, a trait shared in the music of some of his fellow Icelanders, like Sigur Rós or Ólöf Arnalds.

However, Úlfur’s blend of electronic and acoustic instruments (some of which ...

Cape Francis is the solo-project of Kevin Olken Henthorn and features music that neatly fits into a self-made nexus of indie folk/rock/pop and “post” iterations of each. Cape Francis is able to oscillate between slow, melancholic elegies for what is lost (“Iditarod”) and heart-felt indie anthems (“5 in the Morning”). Regardless of presentation, Cape Francis skillfully evokes ...

Bootblacks offer a gothic melancholia bounced back and forth on synth-pop beats, a menacing vision of gloom that’s infectious. Bootblacks’ post-punk/new-wave sensibility is beautifully paired with Panther Macdonald’s vocals. They’re straight out of the post-punk catalogue: romantic, dramatic, seductive. The band promises a seedier vision of NYC, one of decadence and decay. Their newest work offers a more ...
