Deluka works on new album + releases new track 'Stranger Than Fiction'

Last week, Brit-turned-Brooklynite band, Deluka, debuted a new track, “Stranger Than Fiction” on RCRDLBL.com and gave fans a taste of what’s to come on their upcoming record currently under construction. Deluka, known for their hook-laden and contagiously danceable electro-rock, have built their career on melodic and catching dance tracks, from their “Sleep is Impossible EP" to a full-length record, “You Are the Night,” and several remixes along the way. The lady-led group continues to create sharply produced tracks and. “Stranger Than Fiction” is no exception. The four continue a successful path and their recent track lays the groundwork for a highly anticipated record. Download “Stranger Than Fiction” here . – Meijin Bruttomesso

Icona Pop moves to NYC + releases new single

New York City welcomes Icona Pop, the Swedish electro-punk duo whose new single “I Love It” (streaming below) is blowing up. “We just moved here,” declared IP’s Aino Jawo online last week, “so everyone out there who wants to show us a good time, please come and dance with us!” Actually, no sooner did they touchdown, than Icona Pop went right back to Europe for a brief tour where they’ll debut material from their upcoming EP, "The Iconic" (out October 16). Despite their penchant for big choruses and crystal-clear vocals, “I Love It” seems to de-bunk early comparisons to Abba with the line, “You’re from the ‘70s, but I’m a ‘90s bitch.”

Jawo and fellow Stockholm-native bandmate Caroline Hjelt moved from London to New York following last year’s guest appearance on Chiddy Bang’s underground hip-hop charter, “Mind Your Manners,” which took off on both sides of the Atlantic (and was included on last year’s Now That’s What I Call Music 39). Lyrically, their next single, “Ready for the Weekend,” sticks pretty close to the formula, but according to Jawo, “It’s kind of more up-tempo, dance-ier,” which she says owes its vibe to the London scene. “It’s not the same punk feeling that ‘I Love It’ (streaming below) has.” With that in mind, we look forward to how NYC will help shape the duo’s next phase. - Brian Chidester

We Are The Woods to release new album 'Whales & Roses' 10.30

In case you were planning on dressing as a folk singer for this Halloween, then We Are The Woods will happily provide the soundtrack. The new album from NYC folk trio, the peculiarly titled “Whales & Roses,” will be released on the eve of the year’s scariest and most sugar-filled day, October 30th. One month before the record’s release, the band will treat NYC with a hometown concert at The Living Room September 30th. The show will allow fans the pleasure of witnessing the fantastic harmonies of singers Jessie Murphy and Marcia Webb, who are backed by percussionist Tyler Beckwith. Listen to the upcoming album’s title track below. Josh Johnson

Emerging NYC grunge band: Slothrust

Something about Slothrust suggests a taste for destruction, starting with their record's desolated cover art and ending in the systematic perversion of anything comforting. The most linear of their tracks are likely to collapse into noise, as well as any pattern is to break down. Tied together by dragged-out blues and a refined taste for gravelly guitar and bass, this female-led three piece based in Brooklyn benifits from a jazz/blues formation, and masters with amazing ease the art of keeping the audience hanging to a chord. Most obvious when they prolong instrumental sections, or casually pull in and out of a frenzy as they'll do on the folk-coated '7:30', they've got a clear sense of their instruments' strengths, and how to make the best use of their textures. Surely one the most creative & refreshing acts to take a stab at grunge over here. - Tracy Mamoun

O'Death and The World/Inferno Friendship Society announce joint tour

Two months from now, two of Brooklyn's marginal punk-driven acts will be setting off for a joint series of 24 shows from NY to the West Coast, concluding in Pennsylvania right before Christmas. O'Death, who recently released a new album 'Outside' (Ernest Jenning Records), is an alt-country seven piece, which for a fresh take on bluegrass/folk sounds, sends fusing through its circuits the respective momentums of punk and metal.

The World/Inferno Friendship Society, i.e one of those bands whose name it may take a while to remember, work the other way round. Essentially a punk outfit, they tie into their music elements of klezmer (Eastern European Jewish folk), adding a festive touch to their indignated tales of women and politics. Whilst on the roads, they'll be promoting the upcoming release (announced for this winter) of their new single, which comes with its own Turnstile Comix edition. Kicking off on November 23rd at Amityville's Ollie's Point, the tour will end on December 22nd at Lancaster, PA's Chameleon. Streaming below, O'Death's latest music video for their song 'Black Dress'.
