Alex Kelly plays CMJ at Sullivan Hall on 10.16

Queens-born Alex Kelly takes the singer/songwriter genre to a personal level with her power-pop/electro ambiance. This past June, Kelly released her debut record, “Orange Circle,” which showcases her clear, free-wheeling vocals backed by energetic beats, grungy guitar riffs, and evidence of an array of influences. Opening and title track, “Orange Circle” seduces listeners who are drawn in further by the sultry, reggae-tinged beats of “Veil.” “Magnet” and “North Star” feature hard rock guitar licks interweaved with danceable rhythms, and the dark mood continues on “Love Light” with nightclub pulsations and the haunting “Splendor-Solis.” Kelly’s single, “Catalyst,” highlights power-pop qualities with dub-step undertones. The album decelerates into “Eros,” an erie, heavy elecro-rock track. Catch Alex and her band on Tuesday, October 16 at Sullivan Hall and on tour through November with fellow New Yorkers, pILLOW tHEORY. –Meijin Bruttomesso

The Reverend John Delore releases new album tonight at The Deli's CMJ show

For several tracks off his new album “Sweet Talk for Pretty Daughters” - whose release is going towill be celebrated tonight at The Deli's CMJ Rootsy stage at The Delancey), the Reverend John DeLore recorded the lead vocals in the room where folk legend Gram Parsons died in 1973. Clearly, the ghost of Parsons was trapped in that room for almost 40 years waiting for someone to set him free and refill the world with his music. That’s one explanation as to how DeLore could create such lovely folk gems. A more likely explanation, however, is the Reverend is an extremely talented singer-songwriter who incorporates his notable influences along with his refreshing take on folk music. Either way, surely Parsons would be very proud of DeLore’shis music, and DeLore should be too. The band will take stage downstairs on the main floor at 8pm. - Josh S. Johnson

Deli CMJ Post-Chestral Stage at The Living Room with Cuddle Magic, Dangerous Ponies, Doe Paoro, You Bred Raptors? + more

DETAILS ABOUT THIS SHOW + STREAMING
COMPILATION OF ALL 14 BANDS HERE.

It took us a couple of weeks to come up with a title for this Deli official CMJ show. On Wednesday October 17 at The Living Room we'll have a fair amount of orchestral instruments on stage, from You Bred Raptors'? frantic cello to Cuddle Magic's gentle winds and xylophone, without forgetting the sparse piano lines of Doe Paoro and Starlight Girls' retro flute. But even though all these instruments are borrowed from the classical tradition, all the artists on this bill have a forward looking, at times even experimental attitude. This is why in the end we settled with the label "Post-Chestral", which is a term we are happy to notice nobody used before - at least not since Google was invented! This of course implies that we are either geniuses or terrible-new-word creators...

Early that evening we'll have the noir chamber pop of Friend Roulette , In One Wind's orchestrated experimentations, and DT Rotbot intricate post-rock. Later at night we'll be enterteined by the cinematic and atmospheric music of Industries of the Blind followed by cheerful Philadelphia based collective Dangerous Ponies(in the picture, Cuddle Magic and You Bred Raptors).
