Upbeat folk-pop from Brooklyn: The Mouth

It's difficult to find any two people in the world able to communicate the same thing together at the same time. For The Mouth, jangly rock duo Alfie Comito and Joey Puleio have an eerie sense of one another that works to bring their over-the-top rants into stark harmony. For any fan of The Housemartins, The Mouth could be Brooklyn's answer to upbeat folk-pop madness. The group promises more videos and shows are on the way, so stay tuned. And check out some cuts from their barn-burning EP 'Talk About' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

This artist submitted their music for review digitally to The Deli here.

Tunde Adebimpe's Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band at Crossing Brooklyn Ferry

Tunde Adebimpe (pictured) of TV on the Radio brought his experimental rock side project to Crossing Brooklyn Ferry a couple days before playing the main stage with TVOTR. The descriptively (and neverendingly!) named project, Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band, plays a collection of gritty, hypnotic jams without much structure. Loops of spoken chatter and Adebimpe’s signature yelping vocals cover psych and garage jams, grounded by persistent bass lines and drum marches. The project, begun last fall, has played a few selected shows around the city. Their Thursday set ran with a lineup of other artists playing side projects from their main bands like Olga Bell from The Dirty Projectors and Sarah Neufeld of Arcade Fire. - Bianca Seidman





Crossing Brooklyn Ferry docks new fans for Brooklyn indie bands - including Clare & The Reasons and People Get Ready

For the second year of the Crossing Brooklyn Ferry festival, curated by Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National, the focus was a wider sample of indie music and short film. The small three-day fest at BAM included artists selected by and connected to the brothers, like their own house show, in a beaux-arts palace.

The bands, mostly from Brooklyn, were an eclectic mix--electro, folk, noise rock and funk met classical and jazz. The Roots, Solange and TV on the Radio headlined. Several up-and- coming artists played the BAM café, serving as the second stage. Acts often covered by The Deli filled the bill, including Clare & The Reasons (on our cover a few years ago, check out a recent video here), People Get Ready (on the cover of our latest NYC issue), Here We Go Magic, Doe Paoro, Eddi Front, Exitmusic, Porcelain Raft, Olga Bell and many others. - Bianca Seidman

Bellwether releases new EP “...But I Have to”

Bellwether is a new Pop-Punk band coming at you straight from the infamous Long Island scene. The name Bellwether literally means the lead sheep in a flock, chosen by the band to indicate their commitment to change and disinterest in the mundane sound and egotistical vibe that they feel a lot of today’s Pop-Punkers display. Their newest EP titled “…but I have to” dropped on April 9th and is currently available for streaming via Spotify. Their vibrant guitar riffs paired with frontman Desmond Zantua’s catchy and well-suited vocals make Bellwether a band to keep an ear on. Stream the band’s last single titled “...But I Have to” here. - Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)

Zachery Allan Starkey new single "Into The Sun"

Coming out of the nascent VVYNL stable of acts that inhabit the Knitting Factory on Monday nights, Zachary Allen Starkey bucks the trend of erstwhile Lady Gaga acolytes that dominate VVYNL and offers a more socially- distressed alternative. He’s less, well, pretty. But by combining basic darkwave synths with Gary Numan-esque vocals, Starky’s newest single, “Into the Sun,” paints personal loss in simple poetic strokes that feel prescient despite its retro proclivities. 5 minutes, however, was quite enough and he’ll need to switch the formula up greatly to make this vocal style work over an album’s length. - Brian Chidester
