Reptaliens Are Your Favorite Indie Pop Band of 2016!

Reptaliens really do rule the Earth.

Some of us probably DO feel like the lizard elite run everything, or at the very least, the Cheeto elite do. After the way the last few weeks have gone that seems more like an actual fact than an alternative one. But when it comes to who has taken hold of our local music scene, there are a few names we just can't get out of our heads. One of them is Reptaliens.

Led by the lovely union of Cole and Bambi Browning (Sculpture Gardens, Wampire, Brainstorm), Reptaliens has included members from other talented acts like Fog Father, Cat Hoch Band and Lola Buzzkill over their course of their band-dom, but a constant enjoyment can always be found in their songs. A twee-like innocence presents itself amid the lo-fi instrumentation and angelically comforting vocals from Bambi, allowing their songs to easily sway from flirty bedroom pop songs to surrealistic dream daze productions.

As of right now, Reptaliens are scheduled to play their next show March 3rd with Skull Diver and King Black Acid at Mississippi Studios. Until then, congratulate Reptaliens for being your favorite Indie Pop act of 2016!

On February 1st, The Deli will be start sponsoring Le Poisson Rouge's "On The Rise" series, which is focused on outstanding local, emerging artists.

Noteworthy singer songwriter Raia Was will round out a night of great music made in NYC.

New Blood Sound Double LP Available for Streaming & Download

Prolific darkwavers Blood Sound have provided us with plethora of shimmering, new tunes to dance alone to in our bedrooms during these bleak days under a Trump administration. Or maybe you just might want to blast them loud and proud at the "Queer Rager" dance party happening outside the Loews hotel in Center City Philly this evening (from 7:30-9:30) to protest the proposed repeal of the Affordable Care Act and the unwanted visit from Donny "Small Hands" and his spineless Republican congressional delegation to our City of Brotherly Love. True Romance Magazine is a double LP with its first half composed mostly of synths and the second focused on compositions that are predominately made up of guitar and bass. You can take both for a spin below, and don't miss Blood Sound opening for Black Marble on Monday, February 6 at Johnny Brenda's.

Alexander F brings explosive garage pop to Baby's All Right on 02.11 for LP release

Alexander F is electric, loud, and something that you're not likely to forget, and from the opening bass hits of new single "Swimmers," you can tell that they're here to get rowdy. The Brooklyn-based garage pop band offers wild musings on the absurdity of life, but serve it up with a side punk snarls and raucous beats--yeilding a sound that's as fun and unhinged as it is utterly catchy. Check them out at Baby's All Right 2/11 alongside Total Slacker, Exhibition, and Really Big Pinecone for their new record release, but do yourself a favor and stream them below in the meantime. - Olivia Sisinni

Dream poppers Lunch Ladies unveil new single, play Shea Stadium on 02.15

Lucky for us that this NYC centric blog also covers New Jersey based artists... Yes because in recent years the Garden State has been churning out a lot of really talented indie pop bands, and we would be sorry if we couldn't highlight them. Lunch Ladies have been around since 2014 and belong to the "dream" branch of the most melodious of genres. Their music revolves around gentle, uptempo, electric orchestrations, but finds its overall tone through Cynthia Rittenbach's uber melancholic melodies. The band just unveiled new single 'Pick Yourself Up,'  from upcoming sophomore full length 'Down on Sunset Strip,' scheduled for a March release. New Yorkers will be able to see them live at Shea Stadium on February 15th.
