From the Open Blog: Stone Cold Fox plays Bowery Electric on 12.07

WHAT: Stone Cold Fox with These Animals, Alex Vans and At The Moment! WHERE: Bowery Electric WHEN: December 7 at 6:30pm It’s an undeniable feat to be the voice of a generation that straddles the line between youth and adulthood, struggling with loneliness, anonymity, and finding a place in the world. But Brooklyn’s Stone Cold Fox does just that. “Infectious and poetic indie-pop at its best,” (Popstache) Stone Cold Fox’s debut EP, The Young, perfectly marries Kevin Olken’s gritty vocals with Ariel Loh’s upbeat synthesizer grooves. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here). The Deli's NYC Open Blog is powered by The Music Building.

Future Screens' (even) poppier Chill Wave - live at Cameo on 01.04

Anyone looking for the next Passion Pit needs look no further than Brooklyn's next potentially big chill-wave export, Future Screens. Like most quality bands, it appears that also this one was built with hooking up purposes in mind: if their song 'All My Daydreams' (streaming below) doesn't convince her (or him or whatever you're into) to stick around the bar a little longer, nothing will. Singer Rob Arbelo has taken the normally distant chill-wave vibe, and infused it with a sympathetic heart usually reserved for old Motown soul grooves. It's an intoxicating (and dizzying) wave of sonic keyboard blasts that should help get you ready to finally start dancing when you'll see the band live on January 4th at Cameo Gallery. - Mike Levine

New Brooklyn based electronica: Pearl Necklace

The fusion of chillwave rhythms and industrial clatter allows Pearl Necklace’s new single “Do You Feel It?” to percolate like something out of an aluminum factory. (That is a recommendation.) The duo (Brooklyn residents Bryce Hackford and Frank Lyon) found a champion in Arp mastermind Alexis Georgopoulos, who not only contributed to several cuts from the band’s debut album, "Soft Opening," but also helped get Pearl Necklace signed to Smalltown Supersound out of Norway. MGMT’s Andrew Van Wyngarden also contributes organ to the proceedings, promising the LP more than a passing glance from the larger electro diaspora. Just don’t expect party-rock from these mood mixers. The term “welding” comes to mind.--Brian Chidester

Hunters land on the cover of The Village Voice, play Death By Audio on 12.11

We are big fans of Hunters (their latest EP was our Record of the month in February 2012) and it's great to see them on the cover of The Village Voice - big, big thumbs up to the free NYC weekly for picking one of the best (and still very underrated) emerging local bands. The duo plays what could be described as "primal noise rock that makes sense" - i.e. noisy songs rather than just a random accumulation of noise and out of tune vocals. Hunters recently shared stages with Montreal's buzz band Metz and will be playing live in NYC on December 11 at Death By Audio - do not miss!

P.S. We wonder if Hunters will post the news about this cover on their Facebook profile or website (not for now). Sometimes these indie bands are a little self conscious or I-don't-know-what - modest? pretend they don't care?. When they do it to us (it happened recently with Foxygen - YOU BRILLIANT BASTARDS!!!) it always hurts like hell. But we are a baby publication with immature staff and constant need for promotion, The Village Voice probably won't care about that stuff. Or will it? Anyway, one day we'll have to write an article about bands too cool to promote themselves... funny thing is, that's how many of us were too when we played in bands!

Chrome Canyon releases video for single "Pluze"

We should never make fun of past trends we perceive as cheesy, because sooner or later a Brooklyn hipster is going to make them kewl again. Morgan Z's brainchild Chrome Canyon (the man was on the cover of The Deli Magazine when he was involved in the band Apes & Androids) plays rather simple and sparse electro-prog revival (think Vangelis and Giorgio Moroder's big spacey synthetic symphonies), but the amount of flair and intensity he infuses in each of those bleepy notes could move mountains. You don't believe it? Check out the guy's performance in the brand new video for single "Pluze." Morgan landed a deal with dance revival label Stones Throw Records, which released the project's debut album "Elemental Themes" in October. See him live at Glasslands on January 26.
