Shinobi Ninja, Wordspit, Xombie & more at Paper Box 9.28

On Friday(9.28), Bushwick's Meadow Street spot Paper Box will be lending its stage to a showcase of six local distillers of rock/hip hop blends, with as headliners colourburst party-makers Shinobi Ninja . Just like Wordspit, also on the bill, they've been in the studio for a while - that is to say... new music to be expected here. The evening, hosted by comedy/hip hop act We Stole The Show, will also be the opportunity to cacth Xombie, self-defined "hood metal" five-piece, just back from the first stretch of their 'Apocalyopse' tour, who'll be back on the roads from the following week. OXYMORRONS (whose collaboration with Wynter Gordon was released last week) & Small Axe will be completing the line-up; loads to celebrate, and apparently, free beer from 8-9! You can find all the details here

NYC/Austin artist to watch at CMJ: Heavenly Beat

Split between Austin and Greenpoint (Brooklyn), Captured Tracks' signees Heavenly Beat (led by Beach Fossil's John Peña) show this geographical dichotomy in their sound. The band's serene and spacious melodies are rendered in a semi-claustrophobic way in their electro-orchestral arrangements. There's definitely something heavenly at work here, but the heaven in question, rather than an angelic explosion of fanfare, is crammed in a small Greenpoint bedroom where a few musicians (or maybe just one) quietly record their imaginative songs. Heavenly Beat have a few singles under their belt, the latest - entitled "Messiah," is streaming below. They'll be playing at Webster's Marlin Room on 10.16 with Teen Daze and Delicate Steve.

DT Rotbot plays Deli CMJ Show at Living Room on 10.17

D.T.Rotbot’s latest single “Lily” (streaming below) opens like a Zappa or Captain Beefheart classic that never was. Going through more changes in its first two minutes than many bands’ entire records, it’s exciting to hear an artist exploring this oft-ignored nether region of pop music’s experiments - spoken word and sound collage come together in one backyard. For those fans looking to find a cheap way to ascend to Mars without the aid of too many dangerous drugs, D.T.Rotbot should be all you need. The duo will be opening a night of post rock and "prog-chestral" bands headlined by Cuddle Magic and You Bred Raptors? on Octover 17 at The Living Room. - ML

From the NYC Open Blog: Chainwave plays The Rock Shop 9.28

Chainwave (formerly indie rock duo and Deli Magazine artist of the Month The Wicked Tomorrow) has just released a music video for new single “Bloodhounds”. Shot entirely with iPhone camera’s, the video was directed and edited by frontman Ian Jacobs. “Bloodhounds” and it’s accompanying B-side “Both Hands” sees the band (Ian Jacobs - vocals/guitar and Michelle Feliciano - vocals/drums), now a trio with the recent addition of longtime producer Ben Rice on bass, expand upon their brand of dark and melodic rock and roll, infusing it with surfy undertones and psychedelia. The new material has garnered early comparisons to Primal Scream, Deerhunter and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Chainwave plays The Rock Shop on Friday 9.28, as well as Cameo Gallery in Williamsburg on 10.4 (with Jangula). Check out the new video below. (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here). The Deli NYC Open Blog is powered by The Music Building.
