Baked

Baked to release new LP "Farnham" on February 24th at Shea Stadium

A few years back The Deli covered the release of Baked's previous album, Debt, at Shea Stadium. The Brooklyn-based psych rockers will return to the legendary Bushwick venue on February 24th to release their brand-new record, titled Farnham in memory of frontman RJ Gordon's late college roommate. 

The new album has plenty of the shoegazey haze that fans of Debt will love, though it's a bit darker and refined. The supercharged sound -- reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine and Gordon's other band, Titus Andronicus -- comes through on tracks like "Danelectroladyland" (streaming below.) 

Supporting acts Honduras, Grass Is Green, and Hounds will join Baked at their record release show. - Will Sisskind

NYC Record of the Month: Baked's "Debt" - release party at Shea on 08.22

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time.  Regardless, we are extremely excited for the record release show this Friday at Shea Stadium, with support from an all star bill including: Porches., Bueno and Ovlov.  Stream "Mick Jagger" below.  -Jake Saunders

P.S. Yes, we just had a record of the month last week, but when two good records come to us close to each other we've gotta jump at the opportunity, because at times we go without one for months!

Bueno shares new single 'C-C-C-C-Convenient' + plays Baked's Record Release on 8.20

Bueno has been a frequent name in our blog as of late.  It seems like every other week these Staten Island natives are playing a show somewhere, and rightfully so: they're a live band with a lot to offer, including an upcoming debut album (entitled, Guilt) and a tour with Baked.  Bueno started out as an improvisation-based band, but their songs have slowly been making the transition towards a more structured environment; we see this in their very recently released single, "C-C-C-C-Convenient" (streaming) The song is one of nihilism and frustration, a feeling fully embodied by Luke Chiaruttini, whose half talking vocals set the stage for a raucously hard hitting track: "Things are more convenient than it was back then/Sometimes I forget what it was like back then/Things now easier, fun and fair/It's nice to know that no one cares."  Bueno's jammy influences are ones for the books, because they've got it down to a T.    They're playing at The Silent Barn this Wednesday (8/20) - don't miss their set at Baked's record release show this Friday(8/22) because the lineup is one to blow you away: Ovlov, Bueno, Porches, and Baked- Jake Saunders

Florida, Bueno, Crown Larks, Baked at The Silent Barn tonight (07.22)

Tonight (07.22) The Silent Barn is offering an excellent sample of the current Brooklyn musical fauna. Our favorite stone(d) rockers, Baked will be headlining with support by the improvisation-based Bueno and Chicago natives, Crown Larks.  Opening the show is Florida, a band which includes members of PC worship, and a surly, drugged out sense of humor.  Their most recent album is a grungy mix of psychedelic jams, which you can stream below.  Be there. - Jake Saunders
