New Track: "Nothing + Rockets" - Blood Sound

Blood Sound slowly opens the door to their latest single, “Nothing + Rockets,” revealing soaring guitar riffs and shimmering keys. Chris J.’s lonely baritone connects in a solemn manner, helping to shift the sonic undercurrent. Another endearing track to dance alone to in your bedroom from one of our favorite Philly dark wavers/new wavers.





Cuddle Magic signs with Northern Spy Records, releases LP 'Ashes/Axis,' plays Trans Pecos 12.15

A true NYC scene sleeper, avant-orchestral collective Cuddle Magic has been being impressive for a long time now, and our little top ten 'NYC buzz" chart of this same page just reminded us of it - that's what's there for! The Deli booked them for a CMJ show back in 2012 (holy cow, that was an EPIC CMJ year for us!), and their live show left us in awe. 2012 was also the year of their latest release, LP 'Info Nympho.' But true musicians never quit, and we are glad to see the group back on their feet with a new record - and a new label, the experimental-minded, Brooklyn based Northern Spy. The new mateiral is at once edgier and angular in the production and more mellow and ethereal in the vocal department. Check out 'Slow Rider' below, the second single from upcoming LP 'Ashes/Axis,' scheduled for a January 27th release. Don't miss the band's upcoming show at Trans Pecos on December 15.





Electro-pop artist Von Sell revisits debut single "Ivan"

When Von Sell released "Ivan" back in 2015 at the request of some friends, the electro-pop artist developed a following seemingly out of nowhere. A few releases later and the Brooklyn-based artist decided to return to his debut single, giving it the finishing treatment that could only come from 2 years of experience and reflection. With cascading synthy layers, a strong pop sensibility and driving, gritty basslines, "Ivan (Revisted)" is a gem of a pop hit, and our favorite new earworm. Check out the new single from Von Sell streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Electronic songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





PREMIERE: White Bear Polar Tundra - "Sifter"

Blaring through Portland with the incredible grunge meets post-rock power that landed them as one of the top Portland bands of last year, White Bear Polar Tundra are back at it again with their sophomore album Filter the Noise and a new music video to go with it, for the album's first track "Sifter."

"Sifter" starts the album in a very expressive way, letting the force of Zein Hassanein's vocals ascend off of Nate Stoll's drumming while guitar riffs and bass lines from Patrick Beaulieu-Hardin and Ethan Bear act as the wings that carry this song to the next level. It's heavy yet not abrasive; a beauty in a biting package that jolts the listener into paying attention. The video for "Sifter" is just as captivating, allowing colorful effects and desert scenes to add to regency of the song, not detracting any attention from it.

Watch the video for "Sifter" below.





Debut So Totally Album Available for Streaming & Download

So Totally instantly won our hearts over with their debut single, "Zoetrope". And after taking a listen to their first album, a cheap close-up of heaven, we can't help but get excited about what the future holds for this fledgling shoegaze/indie-rock quartet. The band requested us to "play it loud and enjoy." Gladly!
