Really Big Pinecone releases sophomore LP 'What I Said About The Pinecone'

We somehow missed the excellent, almost self titled debut record by Brooklynites Really Big Pinecone, released in early 2015: it's a math flavored psych-pop gem that made the Rolling Stone list of 15 Great Albums You Didn't Hear in 2015. The group, which would be an ideal touring companion for Deli NYC favorites Celestial Shore, just released their sophomore album 'What I Said About The Pinecone.' The record, while being thoroughly enjoyable, fulfils the band's promise to deliver music that's "messy, but playful, abstract, as well as earnest and joyful." Check out single W.I.S.A.T.P. below, and follow the band's bandcamp profile for updates about upcoming shows.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best psych songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

New Myrrias Single Release Available for Streaming & Download

Myrrias just announced that they will be releasing a full-length album, titled Spectra, this Friday, December 2 via Jeff Zeigler's new record label Soft Dystopia, and it will be available on cassette and digitally. The record will consist of four previously unreleased tracks as well as live recordings of songs found on their debut Endless Winter Session. They'll be celebrating the album's arrival next Wednesday, December 7 at Johnny Brenda's with Valley Exit (who are also releasing their first LP), Long Spells, and Sububurban Living (DJ set). Myrrias will be taking a break from playing out live after the release show as keyboardist/vocalist Mikele Edwards prepares to give birth in the coming year (Congrats, Mikele!); however, the group will continue writing and recording as they plan to release another EP in late spring/early summer. Take their latest single, "PEAK," for a spin below, along with its B-side "My Spell," which was written by Emily Robb for the band, before forming Louie Louie.

Sunday Sounds: Sallie Ford - "Get Out"

One of the city's biggest pride and joys, Sallie Ford, has been relatively low key following her split with the Sound Outside and the release of 2014's Slap Back. Over these last couple of years we knew deep down Ford wasn't laying her musical abilities to rest and this month, along with the release of a new single, she announced more new material coming our way through an upcoming album.

February will see the deliverance of Soul Sick, an album of emotive reflection featuring a slew of talented Portlanders that helped bring it to life. Ford found herself at Type Foundry Studio where she solicited the help of Mike Coykendall along with his brother John, Kirk Hamilton, Garth Klippert of Old Light, Ben Nugen of Dolorean, Kris Doty of Modern Kin and helping hand to Tom Waits and the B-52's Ralph Carney in bringing instrumental talent and production smarts to the process. 

On what Soul Sick is all about, Ford said:

This is a confessional album about struggling with my issues — some that I’ve overcome and some that I still carry around. This is an album about insecurity, anxiety and depression; it’s an album about band breakups, major life changes, and what it took to deal with those things. Growing up, I was a middle child and a homeschooler, so I’ve always felt like an outsider. In making this record, I explored what my music means to me, and how I’ve always struggled with feeling the pressure of not being good enough and wanting to quit. On these new songs, it felt good to write on one theme and from one place. All in all, Soul Sick has taught me a lot about myself and helped me to heal.

Soul Sick will be out via Vanguard Records on February 10. Give the first track from the album, "Get Out," a listen below.

HEALTH shares new video for "L.A. Looks"

Noise punk group HEALTH sure have come a long way since we first wrote about them during their start, and it's great to still see them at their idiosyncratic best. Their latest video off of last year's Death Magic, "L.A. Looks", is a stylistically retro take on public access television that equally exposes and pokes fun at the weirder side of Los Angeles. Consider it as an apt travel guide for for those who've yet to visit our lovely city. Proceed with caution.

The Nursery release postmodern video from their forthcoming LP

The Nursery have called their music “freak pop,” which is a good way to characterize their off-kilter sound. Their music is definitely catchy, but it’s punctuated by noisy outbursts and sudden dynamic shifts. The new video for “Everybody’s Famous,” a track from their forthcoming LP, fits their style perfectly.  It features numerous Canadian impersonator artists acting as celebrities, screaming to be heard from a kitschy stage. It’s an idea that raises questions about originality and the need to be noticed in an oversaturated social world, with an appropriate musical twist. - David Levy
