Rarechild's productive 2012 ended with new single + video

Brooklyn's Electro-Rock trio Rarechild put out one single per month in 2012, and just released this video of the December track, entitled "Hybrid." Channeling the darker side of the 80's and the sparse angular electro sound of teutonic origins, the single is based on sober melodies and simple buzzy synth lines reminiscent early Depech Mode.

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

We Are The Wilderness announces debut LP + releases video

Shanda Woods exists in two different places at once. There's the realist: a character that wears the hard-bitten reality of hometown Brooklyn in her comforting soprano. At the same time, all of this is pumped through an electro rock blur that wraps an artificial atmosphere around her charged energy. One half of We Are The Wilderness, latest video 'Just For Now' (song streaming below) plays with these alternating realities by placing Shanda as a coin-collecting, body-suit wearing heroine in an adventure that needs to be seen to be believed. All part of upcoming record 'Descending From Paramount,' slated for May. Perfect for any fan of boundary-breaking soul... or of old-school video games. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

This track was added to our SoundCloud playlist of "mellow" emerging NYC artists here.

A Deli Premiere: Gondola releases debut EP + plays Muchmore tonight (04.11)

Gondola is an ambiguous name for an indie band - if on one hand it conjures up images of mainstream tourism in Venice (yours truly knows something about that, since he lived there for 8 years), on the other it's also true that those darn little boats rock like no other. Brooklyn band Gondola doesn't rock particularly hard though, if not occasionally. Their tunes are propelled by strummed acoustic guitars, but they are not really folky. They are indie pop tunes featuring an element of blue thoughtfulness that falls somewhere in the middle between The Shins' early lo-fi gems, Belle and Sebastian's suggestive storytelling and the Beta Band's quirky pop experiments. Charming. We are premiering the single "We Are the Map" - streaming below - from their debut EP. The band will celebrate its release tonight (04.11) with a show at Brooklyn's Muchmore with Vensaire, Tica Douglas, and Bill Bartholomew.

Brain Cave Fest starts tonight with lots of emerging NYC bands

Now that the warm weather has finally thawed New York’s frozen core and melted away everyone’s collective doldrums, it’s time for the city’s countless music festivals to start popping up, and one of them – perhaps one of the city’s most unique – is about to hit this Thursday night.  The Brain-Cave Festival, now in its third year and taking place at Europa in Greenpoint from April 11 - 14, bills itself as something of a music and multimedia extravaganza, and will feature a ton of NYC acts like Hooray for Earth, Peelander-Z, Lemonade, The Suzan, Monogold, Eula, Zongo Junction, Forgetters (mems. of Jawbreaker/Jets to Brazil/Against Me!) GunFight!, Quiet Loudly and more, plus live art, video projections, DJs and other surprises (not to mention an open bar each night!). For festival founder Luis Velasquez (CaraBella Presents) and co-producer Gabo Rodriguez (Supercrush Studio), Brain-Cave is a chance to showcase a wide variety of musical acts alongside art – a combination of ear and eye-candy guaranteed to mess with your senses and rattle your own brain cave.  The festival has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings at Shea Stadium in 2011 and its stint at the Bell House last year, and now boasts four nights of music and art. For only $12 a night (or $40 for the whole festival - advance pricing), you’ll get four days of Brain-Cave, including a day show at the Greenpointers.com Spring Market on Saturday.  Get more info on the fest here.
