Weekly Feature: Mother Feather announces live EP + plays Nova Festival in the UK

Here's an excerpt from the interviewed The Deli did with self described "Pop Cock Rock" NYC band Mother Feather (who placed at #78 in our latest Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists): "We could not be more excited to perform at the Nova Festival in the UK this July. To help support the trip, we will be releasing a live EP through our website that will only be available during the month of June. It will include some unreleased tracks as well as the Futures dance remix of “Mother Feather.” - Read Jen Margott full interview here. (photo by Steve Meyer)

Conveyor announces full length, release at Mercury on 06.28

Get off the plane, and you'll find you've landed in an entirely new kind of space, occupied by polyrhythmic chants and otherworldly acoustic strumming. I like bands like this. Conveyor does that rare thing where an entirely unique world is sculpted from the abbreviated tendencies of cultures from all over the world. Their palette places FM drones beside zither strumming in 'Mane' (streaming below), and the sunny cheerfulness of 4 part harmonies on tracks like 'mukraker.' All of this takes place within the binding of their debut self-titled LP coming out July 17th off Paper Garden Records.

The party hasn't ventured far from the band's initial percolations in their 'Sun Ray' EP. Conveyor was already at home in their skin then. What's amazing to me is that no matter how many bizarro instruments they pull into their mix, the sound is still entirely their own. So, once you do leave for your flight... you'll find a very large country to explore.

Catch the band at their record release party at Mercury Lounge on June 28th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Idgy Dean releases video for "Onion's Milk" + plays Deli B.E.A.F. on 05.24

Listen to just 'Show Me All The Sounds You Know,' and you might mistakenly think Idgy Dean's only weapons are her positive energy and sultry voice. But stick around for harder-hitting songs like 'Bang Bang Sun' and the new "Onion's Milk" (whose video, directed by Gravity Sleeps, we are premiering below) and you'll soon discover some of the depths to this roaring personality. Like a cross between tune-yards and Marnie Stern, Dean's vocals soar over a backdrop that can include anything from her tympani drum and electric guitars, to double-tracked vocals that surround and pulse through your skin with a physical energy too dynamic to ignore. Idgy Dean will perform at The Deli's B.E.A.F. 2012 (Best of Emerging Artists Fest) at the 2 stages Public Assembly show on May 25 with 13 other local bands, including In One Wind, Xenia Rubinos, Illumintr, Wazu and OhNoMoon. - Mike Levine

Best of NYC #58: Ice Choir announces debut "Afar"

Do I detect a slight English-twang to Kurt Feldman’s singing voice on ‘Two Rings’? It’s hardly surprising. Judging from the track’s complex array of keyboard riffs and dramatic synth swoons, The Pains of Being Pure of Heart’s drummer is clearly a major new wave enthusiast. And if you’re going to try to emulate genre heavyweights like Prefab Sprout and The Pet Shop Boys, why not sing like them too right? Released as a single, the track and its B-side are thus far Feldman’s only ventures as Ice Choir (who placed at #58 in our latest Best of NYC Emerging Artists Poll), but still deserving of a mention because, originality be damned, ‘Two Rings’ and the new freshly released single "Telestrips" (streaming below) are absolutely brilliant. The band just announced the release their of debut album "Afar" on July 31 via Underwater Peoples. - Dean Van Nguyen

NYC rappers on the rise: Big Baby Gandhi

Swag swag swag swag swag swag swag. Swag Swag swag swag? Swag! Swag swag swag swag. Big Baby Gandhi has swag and he wants you to know it. On his first LP NO1 2 LOOK UP 2, the self-proclaimed “best rapper” unleashes furious rhymes over luxurious beats. His voice is more Ghostface than Q-tip, the beats are more M.I.A. than premier, and his swag is so bling that suckers shnuckle up for a touch of the geet. And Das Racist makes an appearance too which is pretty trill. -=brokeMC
