Dead Leaf Echo releases debut LP "Thought and Language" + plays Public Assembly on 04.18

With the spring flowers of April comes Dead Leaf Echo's long awaited full length album release "Thought and Language." An ambitious literary work of dreamy and lyrical beauty and meticulously crafted sonics, the record was impeccably mixed by legendary 4 AD master John Fryer, who worked with Love & Rockets' Daniel Ash, Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode among others. The band has been keeping a relentless touring schedule in support of this album over the last few months and they will bring their live show back to Brooklyn for the first time in over 6 months on April 18th at Public Assembly. Stream single "Kingmaker" in SoundCloud and Video format below. - Dave Cromwell

The bizarre musical world of Blanche Blanche Blanche

Like a jack-in-the-box about to fall off the rails, Blanche Blanche Blanche keeps you guessing what's coming next, the entire way through. Utilizing their penchant for 4-track and melodic approximation to produce an out of this world, grim inducing experience, this new-to-Brooklyn duo is crafting Ween influcenced lo-fi madness for a new generation. Listen to new LP 'Wooden Ball' and just try to make sense this robo-rock assault if you can. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

NYC Artists on the rise: Cool Serbia

I’ll be the first to admit that I'm as infatuated with shoegaze as any skinny-black-jeans-wearing-hipster out there, but it’s refreshing when a band incorporates other elements into the genre instead of just serving straight up 90’s nostalgia. Brooklyn's Cool Serbia has the sound of a psych rock band, but digs a little deeper into music history, pulling out qualities of the bubbly pop of the 60's. The first track off of their self-titled EP “Dream Lover” sounds like a (dirty) surfer doo-wop number, until in the chorus heavy doses of noise and feedback bring out the blokes' shoegazer soul in full display. Their track “Kill Yourself” is much more straight shoegaze, keeping their pop influence to catchy guitars and tambourines. They only just released their debut EP this past March, and they’re already gaining some heat, opening for Andrew WK a couple of weeks ago at Kent Ave. We expect to be seeing more from these guys. – Lucille Sherman

The Harmonica Lewinskies almost win Deli poll + play Bowery Electric on 04.13

The Harmonica Lewinskies aren't the kind of band you usually expect to find over here in NY. The funk and blues group channels Clinton-era sexual intrigue in their name, and hard-driving horn sections in tunes like 'The Ghost Pal Song' and 'Harlem River Valley.' Ok... so perhaps they're not the most serious guys in the world, but if second EP 'Salad Days' leaves you with anything... it's that these guys know how to f***ing play. And that's not something I can say about enough local bands. The band just ended a residency at Pianos - and almost won the latest Deli Artist of the Month poll gathering more than one thousand votes! See them live at Bowery Electric on April 13 with fellow Newyorkers Man in a Crowd. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Big Ups set to destroy Shea Stadium on April 10

I'm not sure what you said... but Big Ups (who made our Best of Emerging NYC artists list for the 2nd year in a row) is pissed off. Maybe not at you, but definitely at things like fresh meat and crappy basses too (at least according to their facebook). The band is probably one of the most ambitious screaming punk acts this side of the Hudson, basically clamoring to knock the doors off of any and all venues (and will probably sleep on your couch while they're at it too). But don't worry. These guys are so much fun, you won't even mind getting hit by a sweat bomb or two when you see them play Shea Stadium on Wednesday, April 10th.
