From The Deli's Open Blog a new band: Atlantic Atlantic

The New York City band, Atlantic, Atlantic is making moves towards "the 90's for the now." This project sets sail in a new direction for Sikamor Rooney's front man, Brad York, creatings a sound inspired by bands such as Pavement, The Pixies, Built to Spill, The Replacements, My Morning Jacket, etc.  All music and lyrics are written by Brad York. The single Super Tall Buildings is recorded by producer Jeff Plate. Take a listen here! - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here). Photo by Lucia Holm)


NC Artists on the Rise: Beloved Rogue

Beloved Rogue is 3 friends.  Alex and Sean, who grew up here in Brooklyn, and Mike who moved to town many years ago from Boston. He had started Beloved Rogue a few years back. Previously involved in other projects, they soon bonded over a love of BJM, the Lilys and Serena Maneesh. Getting together at Seaside Lounge Studios near Sunset Park they put together a 3 song EP “Polaurora”. It includes the video and single “Daysleeping” which contains some nice jangly pop moments in its 6 minute run. The other songs on the EP run down the indie road towards the middle of the pavement, we particularly like the mellower Capital Sense. Upcoming shows this summer include the Northside Fest at Bar Matchless on June 26th. Look for some road dates and another single coming soon. - Simon Heggie


"Real Loud" Brooklyn Bands: Descender

NYC quartet Descender makes sure the flames of early post-hardcore are burning strong on their eponymous six-track introduction to the world. Creating music that is well versed in the tradition of NYC underground heaviness, this unit does a solid job in projecting a relentless sense of immediacy with enough lung-ripping refrains that stick in your head for days while implementing the kind of Sick of it All-esque moments of infectious melody that call for immediate pile-ons (“Crooked Teeth”). Fusing the indomitable spirit of DIY hardcore with a jagged blend of modern hardcore punk brutality and indie rock dexterity, Descender has developed a specific strand of blunt heaviness that doles out qualities you can still feel ok about throwing elbows to with rounds of stellar musicianship that transcend the throwback tag. www.descendernyc.com -Mike SOS


The Strokes are back - at least on stage.

We recently mentioned The Strokes in our printed issue, saying that the band seemed to be confined into some sort of self-exile mode. Well, we hear that on Wednesday 06.09.2010 the 5 Manhattanites played their first live show since 2006 in a very intimate setting in London. The show apparently didn't include any new material. The band will play UK festival gigs over the weekend and Lollapalooza in Chicago in August. No news about new records on the horizon, nor about shows in NYC at this stage.



Anna Rose releases debut album, plays R Bar on June 11

25-year-old singer songwriter, pianist and, primarily, guitarist Anna Rose has release her debut full album "Nomad" on June 8. Produced by Anna with Billy Sullivan and legendary producer Bruce Botnick's supervision, Nomad was recorded in New York and California and makes a singular impression of a female singer-songwriter imagining with fresh new verve the great rock and roll tradition of high craft and liberated spirit. Anna Rose will be performing in support of the release at R Bar on June 11 and at The Canal Room on July 9.
