Ahleuchatistas Black Spirituals IMA and Tonal Masher Play Starline Social Club - 5/26

We´re intensely excited about the upcoming line up at Oakland´s Starline Social Club on May 26th. If you´re a music listener who is always on the look out for a unique live music experience, this show is the event to catch:

Oakalnd´s BLACK SPIRITUALS is a collaboration between two soloists who have found a new platform for the intersection of tone-generating electronic technology and the heart-thumping technology of acoustic percussion. This duet features a new tradition in conversant, duo vernacular dynamics that sparked a revolution in our conceptions of space, stage, ritual, performance, geography, praxis, brotherhood, relationships, rockin’ out and more. AHLEUCHATISTAS (Asheville NC) is guitarist Shane Parish and drummer Ryan Oslance on a musical odyssey of pure imagination, limitless in influences, combining tight-knit composition with improvisation, and delivering powerful live shows. The project was founded in 2002 and has evolved organically as the muse leads through the creative sonic continuum… 

IMA [ii-ma] 今. 瞬間: the electro-percussion duo of Amma Ateria and Nava Dunkelman explores distortions of time and handling of the ever present moment through restraint and release. Their array of metallic nature march forth with space expanding densities to brinks of breakage, situated to be caressed by the beautification of spaces in between. IMA have performed and collaborated with avant garde pioneers such as John Zorn, Fred Frith, Ikue Mori, and many others. TONAL MASHER is the solo electroacoustic project of Aram Shelton. By removing the mouthpiece and reed, Shelton explores a different aspect of a 1937 Conn alto saxophone. Starting with feedback generated via saxophone, microphone and amplifier, Shelton uses nontraditional fingerings to coax an instrument specific set of tones from the vintage horn. The resultant music features patient polyphony from a generally monophonic instrument, and highlights the percussive aspects of the saxophone via key clicks and pad thumps.

Tribal Post Rock powerhouse Tigue plays Baby's All Right (5.12) and Le Poisson Rouge (5.13)

Ohio natives Matt Evans, Carson Moody, and Amy Garapic made their way over to Brooklyn a few years back, forming Tigue in 2012. Now, Tigue is not your typical band. With their conservatory precision instrumentals, Tigue's sound lies somewhere between post rock band and... tribal ensemble? It’s music teeming with energy. Their most recent album, 2015's 'Peaks,' presents itself as a single work divided into eight compositionally complex sections that seamlessly move in and out of each other. Ranging from percussion focused tracks, to droney ruminations, and instrumental indie rock tracks, Tigue carves out a niche corner for themselves in the ever expanding Brooklyn music scene. Catch their energetic performance tonight (05.12) at Baby’s All Right and tomorrow (05.13) at Le Poisson Rouge.

Bat House premieres single 'Patterns' and kicks off tour

By fusing math rock’s atypical rhythmic structures and angular melodies with psych rock’s dreamy, chromatic guitar drawls, Bat House has forged a sophisticated, personal sound. The Boston based quartet has been spending the past year or so working on their forthcoming self-titled album, set to be released late this summer, and they’ve been kind enough to let us at The Deli New England give you the first taste! “Patterns” (streaming below) is the aural equivalent of kaleidoscopic jigsaw pieces from various puzzles that somehow seamlessly fit together– a complex sonic patchwork of shifting rhythmic structures, metered grooves, and infectious guitar chords. The track takes you on a cosmic journey; by the time the band reaches the final shift, singing “colorblind but i still see the patterns in my head” - as the guitars chord spread out in an electric sprint - it really feels like free falling through a kodachrome sky. The band just kicked off their tour last night (full calendar here) and will be making their rounds across the country in the following month, but locals can catch them on June 19 when they play Middle East Upstairs. - Adriana S Ballester, photo by Kit Castange

NYC rapper ELUCID releases political LP 'Save Yourself'

“You want it all, but it can’t save you,” explains Brooklyn rapper Elucid regarding the title of his new release 'Save Yourself.' A prominent member of the eminent Backwoodz Studioz label, Elucid’s polemic vocals complement his Sonic Youth cum Trent Reznor noise collage beats. The album is transformative. It’s a meditation on life, inequality, love, and racial disparity. As more and more of our heroes disappear and disappoint, his advice is well heeded. - BrokeMC

Oakland Outfit NineteenEightyEight Release Debut Album

Oakland's NineteenEightyEight (aka 1988) has released their debut album! NineteenEightyEight started as the bedroom project of Luis Gutierrez, drummer of much-loved, psychedelic post-rock band Religious Girls, however, live 1988 has grown into a full band featuring revolving contributors from the Bay area music scene. NineteenEightyEight occupies a late-night dreamspace, where the drive of Post Punk crosses over with disco rhythms, horror movie atmosphere, and wasted, ghostly vocals meet washed out guitars and synths, creating a singular vibe not locked into any particular time or place. Check out their music and support up and coming local bands!
