Dead Waves release sophomore record “Living Inside” on May 26 at Shea Stadium

Queens, NY-based trio Dead Waves are set to release their post-psych-noise sophomore record “Living Inside” on May 27. If you are a fan of wild, loose, jammy drumming, distant guitar drone and angst-filled screaming vocals, you’ve found your band here. Calling their music "transcendental post-punk," the direct lineage to early works of Sonic Youth, John Zorn, and Swans are readily detected. Having Martin Bisi produce (who worked with those three artists) solidifies that connection. Some of the albums six tracks introduce a heavier guitar sound in places, while quieter moments evoke the vocal style of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis. There are also moments where spoken word segments are introduced a la' Jim Morrison or Henry Rollins. The band will play Shea Stadium on May 26 along with PC Worship, Martin Bisi, Parlor Walls, Prima, and Ritual Humor. - Dave Cromwell

Hector's Pets and Fletcher C. Johnson take Union Pool back to simpler times on 6/1

There's nothing like some good ol' nostalgia — even if most of us weren't around for the music that largely inspires NYC area bands Fletcher C. Johnson and Hector's Pets (pictured). the former takes cues from rock-pop bands of yesteryear, inundating listeners with prominent, simple guitars and airy vocals to match. Hector's Pets, too, carry a vintage sound, albeit one that is faster and harsher.  Quick guitar riffs, driving drums and hard lead vocals supplanted with cooing back ups will be sure to get feet tapping. See them both at Union Pool tomorrow night (05.21).

Acid Dad play two NYC shows in June + talk about pedals on Delicious Audio

NYC's Acid Dad, elected as The Deli's Best Emerging Band of 2015 just a few months ago) boast an electric sound that welcomes psychedelia, garage rock, and post punk in constantly varying doses, and a rock'n'roll attitude that screams "NYC late '60s" (and at times "Manchester late '80s). The quartet has two shows scheduled in June in support of Toronto's blues rockers Black Pistol Fire on June 4th at the Gramercy Theater and opening for Deli Nashville's favorite Diarrhea Planet on June 09 at Brooklyn Bowl.

We asked the band a question about their guitar sound, check out the answer on our transgender sibiling blog Delicious Audio.

Prism Tats plays at Teragram Ballroom on 5.21, debut LP out now

Prism Tats is the solo project of South African-born Garett van der Spek, a multi instrumentalist whose vicious garage rock is fully indebted to the early days of power pop. The compressed drums and tremolo guitars of singles like "Creep Out // Freak Out" are pure rock n’ roll at its most joyful and unforced, the kind that could perfectly soundtrack your favorite early eighties coming-of-age comedy. But behind its wound-up melodies lurks a smart and outspoken look into the intricacies of being an Angeleno, a city that’s greatly informed van der Spek’s now permanent vacation.

Prism Tats is opening for indie rock veterans Nada Surf this coming Saturday, May 21st at Teragram Ballroom. His debut self-titled Prism Tats is out now via Anti- Records. - Juan Rodríguez

Low Doses take their garage pop to Monty Hall on July 16th

Sixties garage and seventies power-pop are ubiquitous these days, in particular in the NYC scene. Jersey City's Low Doses (who made the list of our best emerging Revival Pop/Rock NYC Artists of 2015) play them straightforward, deviating little; they rely on catchy hooks, hand-claps, and lines like “If I could, you know I would stop thinking about you” to subvert the modern cynic and be idiosyncratic. It works. The band has two shows at the Monty Hall scheduled on July 16th. - Dave Cromwell
