A Deli NYC premiere: Nozart's new cinematic single "Puppet"

Here with his newest enthralling avant-art single "Puppet" is Noah Kellman, performing under his moniker Nozart. Kellman, a "fantastical musical storyteller", weaves melodic tapestries out of digital soundscapes, extraterrestrial noise, and relentless electric beats. Kellman's education as a jazz musician plays into his compositions, which deliver modern orchestrations in a futuristic orchestral style.

We've featured Kellman as Nozart before on The Deli NYC. His song "Just Let It Go" is still in our Best Songs By Emerging NYC Artists playlists. "Puppet" follows the style of his previous work, complete with musical buzzes and synth arpeggios bubbling underneath haunting vocals. Listen for sci-fi sound effects peeking out; Doctor Who fans, you might hear the sound of a TARDIS if you try hard enough. Listen to "Puppet" below. - Will Sisskind

No One and the Somebodies bring insanity to Sunnyvale on March 1st

With an "anything goes" aesthetic reminiscent of Jeff Rosenstock’s DIY ska/punk collective Bomb the Music Industry! (but ten times noisier/weirder), Bronx's No One and the Somebodies is an ambitious excercize in blending instrumental experimentation, punky vocals, and fun. Mathy tendencies, blended with or juxtaposed to uncoordinated melodies and slacking moments, come together to somehow build a sound that kinda makes sense, in particular for those music fans that are still in search of unusual music that defies categorizations. Not new to the scene, One and the Somebodies released their debut album in 2004, and their latest (a split album with Palberta) in the summer of 2015. You can see them live at Sunnyvale on March 1st.

Thank God For Science Performs at State Park 2/26

 Thank God For Science is an intergalactic collage of 70s funk, reggae grooves, soaring synths, orchestral arrangements, and spoken word monologues, coming together to form a debut record in Volume One.  The album is a sort of auditory found art piece, taking concepts and styles that you are familiar with and combining them in a way that is unique and eclectic.  Fully instrumental, Volume One would work just as well as a film soundtrack as a full-length album.  Check out Thank God for Science, performing at State Park in Cambridge, MA on 2/26. -Brian Varneke

Portland's Best in Electronica/Experimental for 2017: Gold Casio and Abronia

 We're steadily trudging through our polls for the bands all of you loyal participants in the Portland scene considered the best in music from last year. We tackled the electronic and experimental poll with this last round and we're happy to announce our top winners (though you ALL our in our books!). Congrats to...

Gold Casio for winning the overall poll (which is our local jurors' votes + the readers' poll votes) and Abronia for winning our readers' poll!

Likely the only psychedelic-electronic-disco act around, Gold Casio have been favorites in the local dance scene for a while now to those "in the know." But now, with more singles and shows under their belt, the band's incredibly rhythmic and somewhat flirty musical nature has made its way into the hearts of those outside of the usual dance club dwellers, proving that all that really glitters is Gold...Casio.

Ambiently soft yet broodingly heavy, Abronia have expanded their lineup to match their beautifully atmospheric and expansive sound. Perfect for moments of mental reflection but easy to enjoy in damn near every other scenario, Abronia's dominanation of the experimental side of the poll makes total sense, and we can't wait to hear new releases from them.

Take a peek at our other poll placers and be sure to show them some love as well!
