NYC DJ on the rise: Kerri Chandler

Continuing on in the psychedelic milieu, native Kerry Chandler's strange, compelling work mixes '80s acid house and deep-house, with exotic percussion. At his live performances, expect his usual spate of sound effects too—people talking, cars honking, general tones of urban life—which is known reduce the species to a wonderland of microcosms. - Brian Chidester

Vorhees brings her atmospheric compositions to Baby's All Right 11.11

Mysterious, captivating, frightening, and beautiful all at once, Vorhees' experimental compositions cross the boundaries of pop and electronica. "Are We a Fossil, and of Facings" is an ongoing melodic movement with heavily processed guitars and luscious keyboard flourishes that swirl and fade in a wide sonic atmosphere—a truly intriguing aural journey. 'The Way I Feel inside' is a Zombies cover and her only structured and melodic song, with ambient, goth and orchestral elements. Listen to it below and in person at Baby's All Right on November 11. - Ashley Muniz

Future Generations release debut album, play Baby's All Right 11.14

After releasing their debut, self-titled album under local label Frenchkiss, on November 14, NYC's Future Generations will be bringing their vaguely epic indie pop to Baby's All Right. Off their record, single "Thunder In The City" presents a sonic landscape that intertwines a feel-good upbeat mood with a melancholic ambience, reminiscent of bands like Two Door Cinema Club and Passion Pit. The dream-like, faded vocal presence, combined with sorrowful abstract lyrical content, creates an overall atmosphere of both sadness and relief. Take a listen down below and also check out the video for their breakout single 'Stars'. - Ashley Muniz

denitia and sene to release 'love and noir' LP at Mercury Lounge on 11/18

Back in 2013, when they released their his and hers LP, denitia and sene was one of The Deli's most written about artists (heck, we even booked them at our 2013 electronic CMJ stage!). We simply couldn't get enough of the singer/producer pair's obscure yet very poiginant electro-RnB. Three years later, the pair is back with a new album titled love and noir, and judging from the two singles, "favourite." and "Open Wide,"  the record should be as richly textured and spell-binding as the group's first full length. "Open Wide" has a glitchy, industrial beat with distorted synth glissandos and robotic backup vocals that clash perfectly with denitia's pristine vocals. With "Favourite," on the other hand, less is truly more. Denitia's vocals and lovesick lyrics carry the track, occasionally aided by a horn blast and modulated synths. It's a song of few elements, sure, but each is crafted, curated and utilised to its fullest extent. Catch the duo live at Mercury Lounge on 11/18 for their release party. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber
