Peg Simone's story-songs a Bowery Poetry Club: CD release on June 3

Fans of Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits' may want to check out Peg Simone, a New York based singer songwriter who colors her (and at times somebody else's) stories with searing slide guitar and her smokey, sultry voice. Peg will be celebrating the CD release of her most recent album, Secrets From The Storm (Radium/Table of the Elements). Collaborator Holly Anderson will open reading some of her prose poems that inspired Peg's darkest songs. Alt. guitar stalwart Chris Brokaw (Come, Codeine, Lemonheads) will then play a meticulously rendered set of his songs, followed by Peg who'll play all the songs from Secrets and then be joined by downtown legendary drummer Jonathan Kane (Swans) to perform the album's epic opener "1927/Levee.”


Verma on Giant System

Verma is the latest band to appear on Giant System. Verma will be performing with Moonrises and Killer Moon at Hideout on June 10th.


Hooray for Earth release EP, open for Futureheads, tour with Pains!

Hooray for Earth truly has a lot to cheer about. Not only is the band debuting its EP at The Music Hall of Williamsburg on Tuesday 06.01, but it is also opening - that same night - for Brit indie rock group and labelmates, The Futureheads (both are signed to Dovecote Records). To top it all off, Hooray for Earth will be touring with The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Surfer Blood well into June. Hooray for Earth, that calls both Boston and NYC home, will debut the EP, "Momo," that showcases their synth-heavy, chilled-but-somewhat-experimental pop, that brings to mind a slightly less quirky version of unforgettable Beta Band.


The Deli’s June CD of the Month: Yellow Life Giver - Creepoid

Creepoid is another one of those buzz-worthy local bands crawling out from basements of homes/makeshift practice spaces/recording studios lately in Philly. On their debut EP Yellow Life Giver, they use a reel-to-reel tape machine circa ’56 to help document their evolution. Yes, they are another lo-fi act flooding the indie music landscape, but Creepoid’s raw, gritty production perfectly compliments these four eerily engaging tracks. They open the album with “Rotten Tooth” which is filled with the spirit of Kurt Cobain and that 90’s Grunge angst all heroined out. In “Pink Tag Sale”, you’ll experience a dreamy Left Coast vibe that feels like it was written around a campfire in the lonely desert night. It’s in that Mazzy Star vein that haunts our subconscious. You’ll also find Creepoid putting on their dreary Brit-pop/post punk masks in “See-Through” before closing with their experiment in minimalism “Magic Drum”. The four-song EP is a tease. You can’t help but wonder what these guys and gal have in store for us next. - Q.D. Tran
