NYC Artists on the Rise: Whale Belly

The other night I saw this new folky band called Whale Belly at Glasslands and they put on a pretty impressive show. The band had around 9-10 people on stage and they had the entire place dancing and screaming and singing along and clapping between songs, it was really something that rarely happens in W'burg. Check them out if you have the opportunity, they'll be opening for Beach Fossils in Vermont and then will play RoCkwood Music hall on 10.01. - Doug Sevcik - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).


MMOSS, Peace & Quiet, Moon Climb the Wall, Once Dead Flesh Wednesday at O'Brien's


As Built PResents continues its September residency at O'Brien's pub tomorrow, Wednesday 9/15.  For fans of psychedelic and experimental rock and ambience, this is a bill to catch.  

Moon Climb the Wall's recent "Helium Demon" EP is a shades-of-gray, foreboding trip through ambient landscapes, often brushing elbows with hip hop, an unexpected but interesting angle.  Peace & Quiet stand closer to rock, but share MCTW's mind for ambience and rich textures.  Their "Inauguration" EP incorporates sludgy drums and vocals by turns spoken, sung and shouted - one of the most fascinating tracks, "I Am Capping," sits synth noodling underneath a frantic and distraught vocal diatribe before a sub-synth bassline that would make gangster rap jealous takes over the space.  And MMOSS, the headliner, is a head-turningly good revivalist psychedelia outfit.  They have heavy primary-source overtones; that is to say, this isn't your corner bar's resident band of Brian Jonestown Massacre fans, but the real deal, a band stemming right from the music of the '60s and '70s, and doing it damn well and with a spin of their own.

Here's an added bonus:  The first 20 guests will receive a free poster, and you can get most or all of this music right now for free (or name your price)!  Click a name below to grab yours.  (As Built PR's link goes to the label's Bandcamp site, where they offer, also free, a mix of bands playing in their September residency.)

Soak It Up

Houses have released a second track from the forthcoming debut album, All Night (Lefse, Oct. 19th). The song is called "Soak It Up", and it is just as stunning as "Endless Spring". The duo will make their stage debut at CMJ Festival in New York on October 20th.
