My Best Fiend signs to Warp + play Shea Stadium on 12.15.

I could write here something very similar to what I wrote about Scout 2 blog entries ago. I clearly remember talking to some friends about NYC's psych-rockers My Best Fiend 4-5 years ago. Well, here's a testament to the power of persistence: the band - whose latest incarnation was formed in 2009 - has just signed to (awesome UK label) Warp records - home to Grizzly Bear and a ton of edgy electronic acts. My Best Fiend just made available for streaming a first single (below) entitled "Higher Palms": its subdued pace and spacious melodies bring to mind 2 bands that graced the cover of The Deli: The Occasion and Caveman. A very good sign indeed! The My Best Fiend live at Shea Stadium on December 15.

Found on The Deli's NYC Open Blog: Easy Tells

Easy Tells debut EP, "Got What You Paid For" has been available online for a few weeks now, but Tuesday night, they hit Rockwood Stage 2 for the official release party. The Nashville-Detroit-Austin-Chapel Hill-via Downtown NYC four-piece will chug artfully through a set of earthy guitar-based American rock with a grateful nod to our friends across the pond. And get your dirty little hands on a copy of the record if you're still into that kind of thing. 9pm. Free of charge. - (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 and APS Mastering.

Scout is back with a new EP + upcoming album

I clearly remember writing about Ashen Keilyn's band Scout in 2004 or 2005, when our site was ugly and our readership non existent. At the time I also caught them live at now defunct Sin-e` (I used to live across the street from it, on Attorney Street, it was pretty handy). Since then they kind of disappeared, so I was surprised to get a press release about them after this long. I was also surprised by the sound of the single they are giving away for free ("Please Excuse Me", streaming here), included in their new EP "PI", which features a darker, edgier sound, and is some kind of intro to a full length planned to be released in early 2012. Ashen confirms in this song her vocal a(dora)bility and her talent as a songwriter who tends to operate within coordinates consisting in moodier indie atmospheres and more radio friendly openings. Ashen will be performing an acoustic show at Rockwood Music Hall on 12.13.

The trio released the video for “Suburban Dream” today, the third from their self-titled debut album (out now on Stones Throw). Featuring the animated work of director Chris King the video shows another stylistic side of the band that graces the cover of the current issue of The Deli - read it here.
