After releasing their debut album earlier this year, NYC's lounge pop band Office Culture is scheduled to play C'Mon Everybody on July 14th.

Nine Pound Shadow play Ivy Room 06.22

Bay Area indie-pop band Nine Pound Shadow, consisting of brothers Breandain and Christopher Langlois, are playing at Ivy Room in Albany, CA on June 22nd, with Young Moon and The Daily Evening. The duo's most recent release, a self-titled EP, is a collection of five harmony-laced pop songs that are simultaneously airy and punchy. The brothers invoke the melancholic folk of James Taylor, The Shins and Sufjan Stevens on songs like "Bright Like Gold" and "Tiger Smile," as well as the grandiose orchestral pop of MGMT on "Tell Me Why." Check out the official video for "Tell Me Why" below, and be sure to get to the gig! - Ethan Ames

Pecas bring mellow psychedelia to Mercury Lounge on 06.30

Brooklyn indie rock quartet Pecas will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 30th in support of Modern Diet. On their 2014 release, Dwelling, songwriter Sandy Davis paints pictures of the quiet despair and contemplation that occurs in the midst of a relationship's slow decline. Reverb-drenched vocals, warbling keys and tremolo-laced electric guitars lend a fittingly melancholy ambiance. Listen to "Keeper" below! - Ethan Ames





Friend Roulette announces new EP, releases lead single "Joan"

Brooklyn's avant-pop band Friend Roulette has released a lead single, "Joan," ahead of its forthcoming EP, The Matt Sheffer Songbook, Vol. 1. In a departure from the band's previous releases, Songbook is a series of covers originally written a decade ago by a friend of the band, songwriter Matt Sheffer. "Joan" is a strong indication of the band's ability to create something that's greater than the sum of its parts - Friend Roulette's proclivity toward lush textures perfectly compliments Sheffer's Brian Wilson-esque compositional prowess. Listen to the single below, and keep an eye out for The Matt Sheffer Songbook Vol. 1, out June 16th. - Ethan Ames





Q&A with The City and Horses, live at the Gateway on 07.19

Brooklyn indie-pop band The City and Horses makes music that's both sensitive and urgent. Their records sound like a proverbial melting pot of influences, ranging from '60s Britpop and disco to contemporary alt-rock. On "Shades," the opening track from their newest album, Ruins, verses comprised of ethereal, swelling synthesizers seamlessly merge into romping, major-key disco-esque choruses. On "Drag" (streaming below) the influence of Modest Mouse and Silver Jews can be heard in the song's aura of twangy melancholy. The Deli recently spoke with lead songwriter Marc Cantone about the new album. You can catch TCAH on July 19th at the Gateway in Brooklyn. Listen to "Shades" here, and check out the Q&A they won thanks to The Music Building's Expose Yourself campaign, by following the link below! - Ethan Ames
