NYC Record of the Month: Tiny Hazard's "Greyland"

There aren't a lot of bands like Tiny Hazard floating around these days. Their brand of avant-pop is quite unique and that's certainly also due to the fact that the music they've strived to master is difficult to conceive, let alone perform. Maybe that's why their new record "Greyland" took about five years to be finalized. Alena Spanger's vocals are the core of the record, leading the tracks' twists and turn with her beautiful soprano, never afraid to get downright complex/intense. There's a paradoxical stance taken with the composition, with the melodies pivoting back and forth from sweet to dissonant, and the arrangements from orchestral to utterly noisy. The songs are sparse in their instrumentation but tease the ear with their stops and starts, time changes, odd tempos, and dynamic and melodic shifts. There's so much to be worked out for the listener of this album that a repeated close listening is required to appreciate it fully: it's truly a gift that keeps on giving. Be sure to pick up a copy of "Greyland," it's a worthy investment, and don't miss the band live at The Silent Barn on April 14. - Andrew Strader

Mood Music: Sleeping Horses - "Rarely Has Reality Needed So Much To Be Imagined"

Post-rock is a beautiful genre, especially when it leans more towards the classical end of the spectrum. It's one that really shows the depth of an artist or band's talent, since at times it takes a little more effort to keep the fascination going. This isn't a problem for new solo orchestrator James Randolph Fouty, recording under the moniker Sleeping Horses, who keeps interest piqued with his self-titled debut.

Each track is ambient magic in its own right, but one that stands out is "Rarely Has Reality Needed So Much To Be Imagined." Aside from its thought provoking title, "Rarely Has Reality..." builds up in sonic expansion without becoming too chaotic or losing its intrigue.

Give the song a listen below and check out the debut album from Sleeping Horses, out on Fluttery Records.

A Deli NYC premiere: Nozart's new cinematic single "Puppet"

Here with his newest enthralling avant-art single "Puppet" is Noah Kellman, performing under his moniker Nozart. Kellman, a "fantastical musical storyteller", weaves melodic tapestries out of digital soundscapes, extraterrestrial noise, and relentless electric beats. Kellman's education as a jazz musician plays into his compositions, which deliver modern orchestrations in a futuristic orchestral style.

We've featured Kellman as Nozart before on The Deli NYC. His song "Just Let It Go" is still in our Best Songs By Emerging NYC Artists playlists. "Puppet" follows the style of his previous work, complete with musical buzzes and synth arpeggios bubbling underneath haunting vocals. Listen for sci-fi sound effects peeking out; Doctor Who fans, you might hear the sound of a TARDIS if you try hard enough. Listen to "Puppet" below. - Will Sisskind
