Listen to Blacksage's Aptly Titled EP Shivers + Live at Ottobar Nov. 5

Shivers - seems like an apt title for Blacksage's latest album. The combination of Josephine Olivia's seductively sultry vocals and Drew Scott's hypnotic production evokes such a physical reaction. Listening to more Blacksage is a no-brainer in my book. Shivers is out now via Friends Records, and you can catch them live on Saturday, November 5 at Ottobar. (Photo by Holly Burnham) - H.M.

NYC synthpop artist Blonder releases second single "Talk to Me"

If you still haven’t gotten up the nerve to talk to that special someone you’ve been eyeing for days, then this song’s for you. In his second single “Talk To Me” (following his debut track “Lean,” both streaming here) Brooklyn based synth-pop artist Blonder imagines what it would be like to finally have that interaction. “Talk To Me” brings out the flurry of emotion that would arise from such an experience—excitement, relief, wonder, and perhaps a touch of nausea?—through heaps of funky synths, jingling and jangling percussion, and soft, slurry vocals. Listen to the tracks down below and keep an eye out for more coming soon. - Ashley Muniz

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

VA-based Inter Arma serves up dynamic doom metal

Inter Arma might just be the sludgy saviors of doom metal. The VA-based band serves up tracks that are not just heavy, plodding metal licks, but instead offers dynamic, quaking aural-scapes that reveal a world of more merciless gods. "Transfiguration," a 9-minute stand-out track off the band's latest release, Paradise Gallows, is operatic in scope--utilizing guitar sweeps that echo the glissandos Mussgorsky used on "Night On Bald Mountain" to conjure demons--and threatens to place the listener into the desperate throes depicted on the album cover. The sonic imagery is so trenchant that it's easy to feel gripped by the terror of being ensnared by a mighty, black sea. For metalheads, Inter Arma is a band to watch, and Paradise Gallows is a staggering juggernaut of an introduction. Check them out streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni

After gracing (two thirds of) The Deli's 2016 SXSW issue's cover, Rockaway Beach, NY's avant-soul-pop duo Lewis Del Mar had a pretty exciting year, which culminated in the recent release of their self titled debut album, and the following US and EU tour. The band started turning ears in 2015 with a series of memorable singles that blended an overall acoustic sound with electronic experimentation. The new single "Painting" (video streaming below) confirms their edgy sound and souldful songwriting. 

Check out this interview on our sister blog Delicious Audio: Lewis Del Mar talks about gear and the creative process.

New Music Video: "I Want You" - Marian Hill

We could probably never pull off a choreographed dance, but we certainly apreciate when it's done well. Marian Hill enlisted the help of some talented folks to film their music video for the single, "I Want You," at the YouTube Space NY. In one take to boot! Or should we say, "One time, one time, one time"? The performance was directed and choreographed by Ian Eastwood, and you can find "I Want You" on their full-length release, ACT ONE (Republic Records). (Photo by Pablo Amoretti)
