Infinity Shred releases sophomore LP 'Long Distance,' plays Shea Stadium on 11.18

Infinity Shred's 2013 debut album Sanctuary was an instant cult favorite in NYC, where nothing else sounded remotely like it. Damon Hardjowirogo and George Stroud had previously worked together as Starscream, a dance-punk act that drew heavy influence from cyberpunk-ish soundtracks to 1980s Japanese films. A track off their last LP, Future, Towards the Edge of Forever (2011), titled “Thrashers (Infinity Shred),” gave the pair's next act both its name and new direction. Infinity's proggish techno reconfigures Jan Hammer's coked-up '80s instrumentals (think “The Miami Vice Theme”) into digital nightmares for the 21st century. Their brand new sophomore full length 'Long Distance' features a sound slightly evolved, with the includion of fuzz guitar elements and a vibe that's overall more ambient and dark. The trio will be embarking on an east coast tour in November, with a final date at Shea Stadium on the 18th. - This is mostly an excerpt from Brian Chidester's piece 'Electric Cafe' on The Deli Magazine's 41st issue.

Janelle Kroll releases soulful debut EP 'Outsider'

Janelle Kroll dipped her pen in the wells of a few differnet genres for her new EP Outsider. On the project she mixes elements from synthpop, R&B and neosoul, that, when combined with her noteworthy vocal abilities, form a project that's at once intense and intriguing. We are streaming below second single '24 hrs.' Check out also the EP's closer "Looose," a duet with morgxn featuring a stripped down beat, consisting of just a distorted synth pattern and sleigh bells at first, that allows the pair's vocals and striking lyrics to take center stage. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber, photo by Ennis Chung

NYC EDM night at the BEMF on November 12th at Analog, with Turtle Bugg, Mike Servito and Honey Dijon

Turtle Bugg (from Brooklyn, pictured) is, like most artists associated with Bunker Records, of the retro/'80s house persuasion. He plays Analog on the 12 th within the Brooklyn Electronic Music Fest, alongside other locals Mike Servito and Honey Dijon. The latter, BTW, is probably the most completely retro house artist at BEMF this year, what with her use of full-throated soul singers and hard 4/4 beats, which sound life-affirming and totally non-cliché. For a full schedule of the BEMF, go here. - Brian Chidester

argonaut&wasp releases 'Ha! Fiction EP,' plays Rough Trade on 10.29

Brooklyn via Burlington lounge-dance band argonaut&wasp seems to have grown... a band since we last covered them! The duo led by Trey Schibli and Theo Klein, now a quintet, just released their sophomore EP 'Ha! Fiction,' and we can already sense good vibes taking over our lives. These guys just can't make you feel blue, not even with a song titled "Loser Like You," their latest single streaming below, which somehow ended up making us think about something we'd like to say to Donald Trump. These guys' more crowded live show should be fun, you'll have a chance to witness it when they will be playing Rough Trade on October 29th.

Listen to Blacksage's Aptly Titled EP Shivers + Live at Ottobar Nov. 5

Shivers - seems like an apt title for Blacksage's latest album. The combination of Josephine Olivia's seductively sultry vocals and Drew Scott's hypnotic production evokes such a physical reaction. Listening to more Blacksage is a no-brainer in my book. Shivers is out now via Friends Records, and you can catch them live on Saturday, November 5 at Ottobar. (Photo by Holly Burnham) - H.M.
