IGBO unveils video for 'Gimmie Gimmie' + works on new music

At first listen, music snobs will grope toward an easy classification of Afrobeat for Brooklyn collective IGBO (who made it into our Best of NYC Emerging Artists list earlier this year). However, upon continued listening, new and unexpected levels continue to emerge from 60s psychedelia to 70s funk. Just as their first EP appears to deconstruct an African Ethnic group’s name into a spectrum of trippy colors, their music is a chilly chill stroll through a mescaline tinged dance party. There is definitely a little Fela in IGBO’s trunk, but their flag flaps to its own beat. Check out their recent video for single 'Gimmie Gimmie' - the band is currently working on new music. - BrokeMC

Tribal Post Rock powerhouse Tigue plays Baby's All Right (5.12) and Le Poisson Rouge (5.13)

Ohio natives Matt Evans, Carson Moody, and Amy Garapic made their way over to Brooklyn a few years back, forming Tigue in 2012. Now, Tigue is not your typical band. With their conservatory precision instrumentals, Tigue's sound lies somewhere between post rock band and... tribal ensemble? It’s music teeming with energy. Their most recent album, 2015's 'Peaks,' presents itself as a single work divided into eight compositionally complex sections that seamlessly move in and out of each other. Ranging from percussion focused tracks, to droney ruminations, and instrumental indie rock tracks, Tigue carves out a niche corner for themselves in the ever expanding Brooklyn music scene. Catch their energetic performance tonight (05.12) at Baby’s All Right and tomorrow (05.13) at Le Poisson Rouge.

Ohal's esoteric electronic dreams at Baby's All Right on 05.15

Ohal is the brainchild of Brooklyn singer/producer Ohal Grietzer, who specializes in etheral, often abstract electronic music reminiscent of some of those esoteric sounding 4AD records of the late '80s (from This Mortal Coil to Dead Can Dance). Of the three tracks available for streaming, we are partial to 'All Mine' (streamiing below), the more structured of the bunch, and also the only one featuring vocals. This being said, the vaguely Laurie Andersonesque  single 'Wintertime' is the one that has gained the favor of the internet fans. Ohal will be performing live at Baby's All Right on May 15th.

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

Bat House premieres single 'Patterns' and kicks off tour

By fusing math rock’s atypical rhythmic structures and angular melodies with psych rock’s dreamy, chromatic guitar drawls, Bat House has forged a sophisticated, personal sound. The Boston based quartet has been spending the past year or so working on their forthcoming self-titled album, set to be released late this summer, and they’ve been kind enough to let us at The Deli New England give you the first taste! “Patterns” (streaming below) is the aural equivalent of kaleidoscopic jigsaw pieces from various puzzles that somehow seamlessly fit together– a complex sonic patchwork of shifting rhythmic structures, metered grooves, and infectious guitar chords. The track takes you on a cosmic journey; by the time the band reaches the final shift, singing “colorblind but i still see the patterns in my head” - as the guitars chord spread out in an electric sprint - it really feels like free falling through a kodachrome sky. The band just kicked off their tour last night (full calendar here) and will be making their rounds across the country in the following month, but locals can catch them on June 19 when they play Middle East Upstairs. - Adriana S Ballester, photo by Kit Castange

Corbu unveils new single + talks about synths

Heavily inspired by a life of vivid dreaming, Brooklyn's Corbu take the concept of "Dream Pop" to the extreme, expressing through their music their interpreted realities of the 'sleep-world' . The band just released single 'Polygon Forest' (streaming) off of their soon to be released studio album, 'Crayon Soul'. The track incorporates tribal beats, several layers of synths and the ethereal, psychedelic leaning vocals of lead singer Jonathan Graves. Intrigued by Corbu's sound, we asked him to talk about the band's synths and their set up in this Delicious Audio feature.
