New Track: "Summer Rain" - Gender Work & Murayama

Hovering on the threshold of a refreshing, meditative state and the sadness brought on by internal/external crisis, “Summer Rain,” the collaborative single from Gender Work & Murayama, hits complex notes. There’s a sense of destruction, which attaches itself to the intense storm of drums, while the flute, synth, and vocals softly unite in the cleansing opportunity for a fresh start. Gender Work will be performing this evening at Kung Fu Necktie, with Ships In The Night, Overwinter, and Ethan Lipscomb. (Photo by Yassine Boundouq)

Veda Rays host Tuesday residency at Sunnyvale in February

Since premiering their first new track since 2014 here on the Deli this past September, Brooklyn's Veda Rays have been hard at work.  They released five song Shadow Side EP in November, as well as a second video for “False Coloured Eyes” (streaming below). In the video, the band is shown playing via a four way split screen, while lead vocalist James delivers his dramatic lyrical recitation through full screen edits.   The track hearkens back to the darker side of '80s second wave of post punk British bands, where synths and guitars merge with dark sounding, almost ominous vocals. The band will host a four night residency every Tuesday in February at Sunnyvale, where all the shows are completely free and feature many emerging NYC bands. In addition to the live performance the events will also feature photo & art exhibits, short film projections and spoken word performances. (photo by Julia Stibal) - Dave Cromwell

Tim Kuhl premieres single ahead of new LP, lands 5 month residency at Pete's Candy's Store

The lie “Half-Remembered” asks us to believe is that it is cinematic for its ambience and minimalism. This is not the truth. “Half-Remembered” is cinematic for its drama, its likeness to the grandeur of a big screen in a dark room. At the start of Tim Kuhl’s newest track, the second single from the Margaret Glaspy and Sean Lennon drummer’s upcoming album “Sky Valley,” the dripping piano introduces a gentle music in the lineage of film scoring. This gives way to a dark stretch of synth pop, decorated with gloomy vocals from poet Geoffrey Bankowski. It’s the second half of the song that breaks the illusion of minimalism. Kuhl orchestrates his ‘80s instrumentals to a fiery crescendo fueled by post-rock and all the epic drama of the big screen. The track owes as much to the dynamics of Explosions in the Sky or Godspeed! You Black Emperor as it does to the gothic synth pop of John Maus or The Cure. You can listen to “Half-Remembered” below and pre-order “Sky Valley,” due February 23rd, here. Kuhl will perform a string of shows at Pete’s Candy Store as part of an extended five-month residency beginning February 17th. – Cameron Carr, photo by Nathan West
