Check Best Behavior's real behavior at Brooklyn Bazaar on 01.11

Notwithstanding their name, the guys in Best Behavior don't come across as exemplar human beings - not at all for that matter! First of all, they are said to partake in rambunctious parties during which they play electrical musical instrument, dance incontrollably, and sweat while wearing leather cloths - disgraceful behavior! Some decadent New Yorkers seem to enjoy that, may they find the Lord's true path. Secondly, they use sexually disturbing images on the cover of their records... we are speechless!! As if that wasn't enough, take their song 'Bad Habits' for instance (streaming below); it's a track inspired to sinful music of the '50s that discusses how bad habits are impossible to destroy... how self indulgent!!! Their 2015 album “Good Luck Bad Karma” includes other hummable songs such as “Magic” and “Buried on the Mountain,” which would be our favorite if we weren't so turned off by the band's moral terribleness!

(We are flirting with the idea of catching them live on January, 11th at Brooklyn Bazaar.)

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best punk/garage songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out! (if you hear nothing, turn the widget's volume up!)

New Horsecops LP Available for Streaming & Download

Philly four-piece Horsecops grabbed our attention with its heady four-song debut Dog, and before 2016 gets tossed in the can, the band has dropped its first full-length album, Annie, via Bald Spot Records. With most of the LP being recorded at Big Mama's Warehouse by Evan Bernard (of The Superweaks, ex-Dangerous Ponies) and at the group's home, Horsecops traverses between crunchy fuzz rock and lo-fi synth-noise on its latest offering, creating an oddly balanced, enjoyable collection of recordings. Take Annie for a spin below.

VBA and the sound of the upcoming (political) apocalypse

If the election of Trump put you in an apocalyptic mood (anybody?), you owe it to yourself to check out NYC's drone rock trio VBA and their debut EP 'Will It Still Be There.' Brooding tracks like Aisles (hear it below) are inspired by the early post-punk days, and provide the perfect amount of gloom and unresolved tension to inspire your next political (Facebook) fight - or maybe be its live soundtrack! The band toured with Kurt Vile & The Violators in 2013 and hasn't been very active since the release of the EP in August 2016.

Electro-psych collective Psymon Spine plays Mercury Lounge 1/9

With canned, am-radio vocals, surf-y female harmonies, and interesting, angular beats, Psymon Spine's latest release manages to be both haunting and strangely dance-able. The four tracks that make up the self-titled EP utilize a combination of fat synths and energetic drum machine grooves as the backdrop for ethereal vocals that float at the top of the mix. Check them out for yourselves at the Mercury Lounge 1/09 with The Roofers Union, but in the meantime stream them below. - Olivia Sisinni

NO ICE celebrates album release at Shea Stadium on 01.06,

Like an unpredictable sonic time machine, NYC's collective NO ICE manages to channel several decades of music within one record: Jesus and Mary Chain, The Ramones, Tom Waits and the Beach Boys are only some of the influences that come to mind when listening to the band's debut album 'Come On Feel The NO ICE,' released earlier in 2016. From the doo-wop backing vocals of “We Get High Together” to the droney post-punkness of opening track “The Cemetery” (streaming) NO ICE conquers an exceptionally diverse vibe, covering a wide range of sounds and emotions, also thanks to lyrics that tackle topics such as getting high and/or drunk, breakups, love, and the other highs and lows of life. You can catch NO ICE live on January 6th at Shea Stadium, where they'll be celebrating the physical release of 'Come On Feel The NO ICE.' - Jocelyn Hoggler
