The Mystery Lights bring their vintage psych-blues to Baby's All Right on 8.17

After moving to New York City from a small town in California, The Mystery Lights solidified their lineup and won over Brooklyn crowds with their vibrant and rough garage-psych. The band was the first to put out a release on Daptone’s rock imprint Wick Records back in June with their self-titled debut. The quintet’s vintage sound is deeply rooted in the spirited nature of garage and punk, while also bringing '60s blues rock to the table. Album opener “Follow Me Home” features fuzzy, hypnotic guitars and rumbling drums with lively fuzz-soaked rock and roll vocals that often employ a yelping delivery. “The energetic track “Too Many Girls” (streaming) evokes the early soul and funk records with a smoother delivery,  call and response vocals, and winding guitars. The Mystery Lights will be playing Baby's All Right on August 17th! - John Honan

Dash Through the Twilight Streets w/Birthday Boy at KFN Aug. 14

The three-piece of Birthday Boy immediately rushes forward as the emotive pop-punk sound generated is unified, dashing through the twilight streets. The murky undertow of bass prowls, while percussion triggers anxious anticipation and the guitar picks points to jump ahead; meanwhile, first person observations paint the ever-moving exterior. Tonight, the sonic canvas can be found at Kung Fu Necktie, where they’ll be joined by the sparse yet revealing slowcore of Glenn Matthews and episodic folk of Spot Collins with its endearing descriptive lyricism. The rousing pop-punk energy of New York’s Dizzy Bats applies the finishing touches. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ (Photo by Andrew Tomasino) - Michael Colavita

Saturday Night Sounds: Blowout - "1 I Want"

Blowout left for tour last week, just before their highly praised No Beer, No Dad came out on the 5th. We won't be seeing them back home until near mid-September, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy them tonight.

With a showering of the Perseids leading us into the weekend, all the gazing up into the stars has left us feeling a bit romantic. Blowout's "1 I Want" is a simple, sad song about a love lost. The lyrical repetition of "The one I wanted is the one you took from me" really acts to drive home the loneliness, especially when sang through vocalist/bassist Laken Wright's tender voice.

"1 I Want" packs both a powerful punch and the delicacy needed for a soft emo heart on this Saturday night.

Jackal Onasis release debut LP + play Shea Stadium on 8.12

Forming as a duo along opposite coasts, Jackal Onasis eventually became a Brooklyn-based fuzz rock trio in 2015. Influenced by bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Autolux, and the Deftones, their music is a fierce blend of shoegaze, post-hardcore, punk, and noise rock. Guitarist Alex Molini and drummer Jordyn Blakely share vocal duties on their debut full length Big Deal Party, creating delightfully mellow harmonies over the band’s chaotic and sludgy tracks. Their fuzzy noise-pop borrows the soft-loud-soft dynamic from grunge, while adopting the wailing ‘wall-of-sound’ element of shoegaze and noise-rock. Molini and Blakely’s melodic and breezy vocals have an hypnotic effect when paired with their crunchy guitar and bass tones and the crashing drum parts. Jackal Onasis will be playing Shea Stadium on August 12th in support of NYC legends Fiasco! - John Honan

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