Weekly Feature: Foxygen

Splitting their time between NYC and Olympia (apparently they live 6 months here, 6 months there), Foxygen is a band that's only devoted to its crazy musical intuition. Besides the insane mash up of influences that can almost all be traced back to the sound of the 70s (we hear early Roxy Music, early Bowie, Captain Beefheart, John Lennon, Motown...) the most astounding thing about their music is how it flows (in this regard, check out the streaming track). It flows like... a record from the 70s! This, after we spent 30+ years listening to new records produced with a click track (or directly with a drum machine), feels incredibly refreshing.

The band also possesses great songwriting chops, which definitely helped them snatch a 7.9 grade from Pitchfork - that's great, but if this is not "Best New Music" material, we have no idea what else can be. That is why their debut album "Take The Kids Off Broadway" was The Deli NYC's Record of the Month in May. - We featured Foxygen in print in our latest NYC issue, you can read Mike Levine's full interview here.

Shy Hunters release new video + play Glasslands on 08.09

In case you didn't realize it yet, the music industry is rapidly marching from the home recording revolution to the home made music video making one - it is truly amazing what indie directors can do these days for indie bands with tiny budgets. We covered avant-dream-pop Brooklyn duo Shy Hunters back in March, and with this video of the song "Time Bomb" they are now giving us another good excuse to write about them  The song itself is pretty impressive: its complex melodic structure is made accessible by a clean and jumpy drum patter, and by singer Indigo Street's gorgeous vocals, while brooding, distorted and repetitive guitar riffs (somehow reminiscent of early King Krimson) flood the sonic background. This is not a band for everybody, but those who like us enjoy intensity should keep an ear on them. Shy Hunters will be playing Glasslands on August 9. -Time Bomb was added to our SoundCloud playlist of emerging NYC artists here.

Electro NYC artist on the rise: Michna announces release

Brooklyn-based producer Michna has been flying quietly under the radar for the past few years since releasing his debut album "Magic Monday" in 2008. Born Adrian Michna, the artist has kept busy painting, doing remixes for everyone from Joy Orbison to Kelis, and even producing for the NBA. But with his forthcoming EP "Moving Mountians," Michna returns with his own pulsating club beats. The hip-hop and electric infusion embraces his dual New York and Miami upbringing, combing the two worlds for another trans-inducing collection that picks up where "Magic Monday" (and a few remixes in between) left off. The premier track “Wanted Exotic” is streaming below, and the entire "Moving Mountains" EP is set for release on September 18 on Ghostly. - Devon Antonetti
