Wingtip releases indie pop single 'Rewind,' tours the US in the fall

Quirky production is something we relate to here at The Deli NYC - maybe because, in the not too distant past, that's what stellar local bands like Talking Heads and They Might Be Giants pulled off in rather epic ways. In the last year, Wingtip (Nick Perloff-Giles), has been releasing a series of dancy singles that found hundreds of thousand of online lovers, showcasing in each one of them an interest in slightly bending the rules of electronic dance music. None of them however is quite as quirky as this new single Rewind (streaming below) which features Sophie Strauss' youthful and chilled vocals. The song departs from Wingtip's dance-soul leanings, featuring a more indie pop approach that suits the vocalist's style and the track's content: "it's a song about love and loss, but also just about how things change slowly, and you don't notice until you pick your head up and wonder what happened." Wingtip just announced a fall tour whose NYC leg is scheduled at Output on November 10.

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





Expand Your Mind with Zozma's Psychedelic Production

The Deli Portland has had an eye on Zozma for a while, and we're glad to see that more listeners have been turned onto them as well. Psych gets used more as an added descriptor to other types of genres, or as an element of an album, but there exists a lack of local, modern acts that define the genre. 

Enter Zozma, a collection of spiritually connected beings that create more than just music; they create a movement. Their music roots itself in traditonal Middle Eastern piety, powerfully united with ethereal vocals and a mastered understanding of instruments otherworldly. You'll find yourself fully consumed by its aural dominance as if to be in a trance-like state, exactly like what is imagined when thinking of the psychedelic tunes dominated the 60's.

Be sure to catch Zozma during one of their occasional performances around town. Their live performances sound exactly like their recordings, elevated by a hypnotizing and engaging stage presence. It's a musical adventure every appreciator needs to experience. 

Congrats on the Artist of the Month win, Zozma!





Color Tongue unveil video for 'Sprout," play the Knit on 10.10

The Deli NYC is delighted to premiere this deliciously lo-fi and bizarrely sci-fi video of 'Sprout,' a recent single by our current Artist of the Month Color Tongue. The colorful, heavily tactile sequence of images perfectly matches the song's organic sound, based on a vivid amalgamation of Devo-esque synths, crunchy guitars, and vocals that straddle the line between '60s pop and avant-psych a la' Animal Collective. This is music in which fun, imagination and catchiness go hand in hand (in hand) - what else can you ask for? Oh right... a great live show! You'll have that on October 10th at The Knit!





Needle Points Record Release Show at JB's Sept. 18

Celebrating the release of their latest effort, Feel Young (which officially comes out September 23), at Johnny Brenda's tonight, Needle Points fuses modern grit with nostalgic production, which was helmed this time around by Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog). Reminiscent of a drive down some forgotten, dusty road and suddenly discovering something new and rejuvenated in rock 'n' roll, the group has a sound that you'll gladly want to crank up while rolling the windows down. Step back in time this evening, where you'll also be joined by LA's Mystic Braves and The Dream Ride. Needle Points is heading out in October/November for a nearly month-long tour with mewithoutYou, Into It. Over It., and Yoni Wolf, so make sure to cop an album when the traveling circus rolls into your town and support the band's imprint NeedLove Records. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Keith Kelley
