Courtship Ritual - not of the frisky variety

An unsettling sense of foreboding runs throughout “Wild Like Us,” the A-side single from Brooklyn's Courtship Ritual, who recently played their label GODMODE's show at the Northside Fest. Evoking the spirit of 90’s era 4AD artists like His Name Is Alive and their disquieting “Can’t Go Wrong Without You,” ominous overtones emerge from within the spaces surrounding the song's sparse arrangement. B-side “Biesenbach on the Beach (Klaus)” maintains a similar level of spaciousness, driven along a singular bassline and minimal slap percussion as vocals repeat the lines “grey fox grey – beach day.” Recorded by Colin Alexander and mastered by Joe Lambert, the tracks are available digitally worldwide and as a limited edition cassette on the GODMODE imprint. - Dave Cromwell

The Dig releases "Tired Hearts" EP, tours + plays Knit on 07.12

We are long time fans of The Dig - we booked them at one of our CMJ shows a few years ago before they started touring - and it's great to see them back with a new track that challenges their established sound. 'Angeline' (streaming below), from the new EP "Tired Hearts," in the production department is vaguely reminiscent of The Pixies' slower tracks from their mature period - think 'Velouria' or 'This Monkey's Gone to Heaven,' with big, open, surfy guitar chords drenched in reverb and almost whispered melody lines... except, this tune switches pace (but not necessarily atmosphere) around three quarters of the way. The other track from the EP, "Without your Love" confirms a conversion to a sound more open and psych. The band, currently touring the US, will be at The Knit on July 12.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Raccoon Fighter plays 2 day residency at Cake Shop on June 20-21

Indie rockers Raccoon Fighter are set to hit the stage at Cake Shop for a 2 day residency dubbed "Summer Soulstice" that begins this Thursday, 6.20. Formed in 2010, the Brooklyn-based trio is propelled by a raw yet coercing sound that we experienced and enjoyed live in more than one occasion. Their songs range anywhere from Nirvana-esque grungy material to underground Indie fusion to upbeat, alternative rock, making for an entertaining and versatile listen. Mount Carmel, The Teen Age, and Punks On Mars will open for them on the 20th and The Denzels, Aloud, and Dead Stars on the 21st. Listen to the song “Dear Big City” below and check them out at the Cake Shop this week! – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Alt Rock songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
