Saturday Night Sounds: Thong - "Cheese Fries"

It's Saturday. It's the eve of a grandiose holiday and instead of thinking about that, we've got our eyes set on the eve of an approaching year and how we're going to celebrate it. When it comes to rowdy sprees of festive exuberance, of course two things come to mind: thongs and cheese fries. Thankfully we can recognize both of them, on New Years Eve, with Thong.

Take to Thong's spacey psych track "Cheese Fries" if you're feeling particularly hungry and/or you're so excited you can't wait for the upcoming Jeff's New Year's Plasma Blast! jamboree, where Thong and 11 other bands are set to dominate the American Legion Post 134 on Alberta.

Until then, we'll be here, thongs and cheese fries in tow.

Weekend Warrior, December 23 - 25

The hypnotic, slithering, synth-laced electro-pop of Shari Vari, a.k.a. Void Vision, cerebrally slices. Tonight, that ruminating, adrenaline-activating, cold-wave creeps into Kung Fu Necktie. While the haunting suspense sends shivers up one’s spine, the warm ripple of rhythm radiates internal warmth. This evening’s bill, which also features the pulsating EDM beats of Dan Shields, a.k.a. Speaking Parts, as well as a DJ set from the heart-pounding hyper kinetic Deflector, serves as a benefit for the victims of art collective Oakland warehouse space Ghost Ship fire that killed 36 people. Embrace the twisted grooves, while giving back. Kung Fu Necktie 1250 N. Front St., 10:30pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Surf Rock is Dead talk about their guitar sound on Delicious Audio

With a sound both meditative and gothy, Brooklyn duo Surf Rock is Dead pairs sunny melodies to melancholic tinges, ala the Drums. Their guitar sound, although not distorted, has heavy shoegazer leanings, a genre that's tightly connected to the use of stompboxes. Since guitarist Kevin Pariso confided us that he often gets asked about the secrets behind his uber dreamy sound, we just thought we'd give him an opportunity to come clean in this Delicious Audio Interview. - photo by Michael Cooper

Band new and promising: Magana plays FIKA on 01.06

Ever wish all songwriters were actually songRIDERS - i.e. they focused on taking us for a ride, rather than just... writing songs? This neologism works well for Brooklyn's Magana, the indie pop/alt folk project of Jeni Magana, who released her haunting and slightly eccentric debut, four track EP 'Golden Tongue' this past October 2016. In it, Jeni takes us on rides of the mental variety, and since we are brainy New Yorkers, we are feeling right at home. Two songs stand out to our ears: ballad "The World doesn't Know," with its elegant melodies, trembling guitar and sophisticated chord progression, is dream folk perfection; its lyrics, through Magana's heartfelt vocals, find the ideal form of control a lover can have over the loved one: an imaginary one. "Get it right," as moody and only slightly faster, also deals with thought process and relationships, focusing instead on how the right words, but only the right ones, can change minds. (Incidentally, that's a lesson we all need to learn if we want to win the next elections). We stream both tracks below. Magana will be performing live at Manhattan's FIKA on January 6th.

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

New Track: "Life" (Feat. Dave B) - Ivy Sole

Featuring Seattle emcee Dave B and produced by Kam DeLa, "Life," the new single from Ivy Sole, seamlessly intertwines an elegant, simplistic beat with a blend of reflectively active lyrical lines. They mesh the soul-oriented nature of the chorus, and then enhance the depth of detail with decisive rhymes. The track, which can be found on her forthcoming release East, maintains a natural ease, while demonstrating power.
