New Track: "Under The Rug" - Steady Hands

Steady Hands will release a double album that includes their first four EPs. However, on Rude Boys of Bar Rock, which will be released on December 9 via Lame-O Records, you'll also find a brand new single. “Under The Rug” captures a folk-punk sense of yearning, as strolling acoustic guitar is reinforced by momentous backend that leads the way to the surging,  energetic release of electric guitar. Steady Hands is slated to appear at Ortlieb's on December 4, along with Thin Lips, Cold Climb It, and The Lame-O’s.

Buck Meek of Big Thief talks about his guitar pedals

Big Thief's debut album "Masterpiece" has been rocking our world this year - so much so that we named it The Deli NYC's Record of the Month back in July. We asked the band's guitarist Buck Meek (who also has a solo folk project we recommend checking out) to tell us about the stompboxes he uses when playing with the band; you can find his very thorough response on our sister blog Delicious Audio - link below! If you can afford it, tou can see Big Thief next on 12.03 at the Beacon Theater, sharing the stage with Cindy Lauper!

Leopold and His Fiction Expose Inner Turmoil in Video For "I'm Caving In"

 Daniel Leopold has come to the existential crossroads that nearly every musician has had to confront at some point in their journey- whether to continue pursuing musical aspirations or to stick the proverbial "fork in it". The front man of Leopold and His Fiction wrote the new single "I'm Caving In" at a time when continuing to play music was brought into question. The saturated lighting, swirls of ethereal colors, and out-of-focus shots in the music video reflect the turmoil and indecision in the song's lyrcis. Self-reflection also emerges as a dominant theme, as Daniel is shown quiically staring at different versions of himself playing music on outdated televisions. Success is rarely found without a healthy dose of adversity, and Leopold and His Fiction seem to have conquered their demons, at least for now, as they prepare to release their fourth album, Darling Destroyer, on January 20th, 2017.
