Electronic bands we like: Body Language - Highline Ballroom on 10.19

Body Language - an electro-pop outfit we've been following for some time - put on a great show at Brooklyn Bowl last Saturday. This band can deliver rambunctious energy, booty shaking dancey beats, angelic melodies, experimental textures and mellower atmospheres at will. To get more from the band, you'll be able to catch their music video to "Huffy Ten Speed" very soon and listen to their second EP in the fall, featuring three songs that they performed at Brooklyn Bowl and one never-before-heard track. Next NYC date at Highline Ballroom on 10.19 during the CMJ music marathon. - Abigail Devora


On the Eve Of Their Tour, Quiet Company's Gear Gets Jacked

[Ed.: Forwarding this on to the Deli readership, help out if you can:]

The night before they were supposed to leave for a 3-week tour, hard working local band, Quiet Company, had their trailer broken into and a majority of their gear stolen. 

The band is currently trying to make last minute plans in order to keep their tour dates uninterrupted and needs your help. Below is a list of instruments that were taken from their trailer, which is kept in a secure, gated location, no less. If you have any information, or are able to locate any of the gear below, please contact Paul at: paul@quietcompanymusic.com

1973 Fender Jazz bass (black with white pickguard, black block inlays in the neck, original bridge with the saddles zip tied together, Dimarzio pickups, a chunk out of the nut below the G string, pretty roadworn) http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs404.snc4/46717_436474828745_513488745_5013404_6673875_n.jpg

Crystal Stilts back with a new single + album in early 2011

Crystal Stilts was (probably) the band that started the whole "nu-surf-psych-punk" trend - and we liked their debut CD "Alight of Night" so much that we gave them the cover of our 17th NYC issue. The Brooklyn droners just announced the upcoming release of a new single (you can stream the two songs in it here and here) and of a full length album scheduled to hit our ears in early 2011. The band will play live at The Rock Shop in Gowanus on 10.29 after a long time - mark dat calendar of yourz!


Jukebox the Ghost CD Release Extravaganza at The Ox Sept 14!

Holy awesome mid-week bill Batman! You mean Jukebox the Ghost is playing one of the friendliest, funkiest warehouse/occasional rave/industrial living space/music venue this side of the equator The Ox tonight? And they are bringing Via Audio AND Drink Up Buttercup along for the show!?!  Well, show isn’t even the right word. They already billed it as an extravaganza so I won’t be satisfied without overweight dancers and those creepy dudes who (used to) sell nitrous in the Electric Factory parking lot. Jukebox the Ghost is celebrating the release of their fine second LP Everything Under the Sun and personally, as you probably picked up, I couldn’t be happier about their choice to celebrate it in such a sweet environment. After making their television network debut on The Late Show with David Letterman last week, these pop confectionaries are going to fill this warehouse with rainbows (double/triple) and inescapable energy that exudes from each song. The space is sure to fill up tonight so get there before you end up in the hallway! The Ox, 2nd and Oxford, 8pm, $5, All Ages - Adam G.
