Music Video for VUM's "New Girls", streaming on Soundcloud and single release party

When the trio VUM first got together, they had an idea to get music out—in a recent interview with Impose Magazine, Jennifer Pearl thought to "throw everything on the wall to see what sticks." Perhaps to their surprise (definitely to ours), "New Girls" stuck, and stuck around for nearly eight years. While it didn't make the cut for VUM's debut album, we're glad they dusted it off and (after laying new vocals) set it out as the third single to their upcoming LP Cryptocrystalline. "New Girls" carmine pop-noir casts a familiar umbral shadow that long-time listeners can trace back to Strange Attractor, complementing the hypnotic oscillations of "Katrine" and stellar frequencies of "This is the Witch", both released in 2015. 

Watch the music video to "New Girls", the latest track from VUM's upcoming album Cryptocrystalline, out digitally on 3/25 and physically on 5/3 through their own Secret Lodge Recordings, and catch a special (FREE) single release show with them and Intimatchine on the 25th at LA MOTHER- Ryan Mo

Live Review: Ghost Noise at Non Plus Ultra 12/05

On Saturday, the Ghost Noise album release party drew together acts with unparalleled vigor under one roof, moved by the currents of Wes Johansen and KXLU's Mukta Mohan, and the familiar musk of leather jackets and alcohol.

Intimatchine pulled Non Plus Ultra in with its dreamspun pulsations. Once close, Chelsey Rae Holland passed a vial of holy water to the audience, and sat amongst them as she sang. Jessica Nicole Collins' channelled BERU's "Adult Emotions" with her brother and sister-in-law, clad in skull mask and gold leopard jumpsuit. In the spirit of '80s dance, they ended with a cover of Laura Branigan's "Self Control". Josh Dean, Gawby Moon, and John Connolly brought the party to midnight in noise-droning end with songs from their debut and their sophomore release Our Heaven of Darkness.

In loving memory of their friends and family and fans, the trio performed "Amethyst" as an encore special — the first song they'd ever written as a band.

Our Heaven of Darkness is available for stream and purchase on the Ghost Noise Bandcamp. You can find more pictures of the Ghost Noise album release party on our Instagram @TheDeliLA. Thanks to BoredToDeath for producing. - Ryan Mo, photos: Michelle McCausland

Ghost Noise to release second full-length Our Heaven of Darkness

After months juggling studio time, rehearsals, and shows across California, Los Angeles darkwave trio Ghost Noise will release the follow-up to their 2013 debut This is the Next Part of Your Dream.

Our Heaven of Darkness, the full-length recorded through 2014 and produced in part with Jessica Nicole Collins (BERU)and Jöseph Solomön Calleirö, comes out this week on December 5th.

The Deli reached out to Ghost Noise about what fans new and old can expect from Our Heaven of Darkness. "We're exploring a lot of darker tones on this album," says Gawby Moon. 

John Connolly adds, "It’s an album born out of a lot of hurt. These are the most deeply personal songs we’ve ever written."

Ghost Noise and BoredToDeath are hosting a record release show at Non Plus Ultra with Intimatchine and BERU. The evening will be complete with visual projections by Wes Johansen, vinyl grooves from KXLU's Mukta Mohan, and delectables by Joshua Ploeg. You can also catch an early show this Thursday at The Smell with Band Aparte and Parallax Scroll. Listen to the lachesist "Farther and Fainter", the second single from Our Heaven of Darkness, below. - Ryan Mo
