Cheem shows that pop punk can still be innovative on debut EP

After working on it for nearly a year, Connecticut’s Cheem released its debut EP, Elka, on September 10. The pop punk set starts off with the spunky “Chicks Love Gongs,” a track boasting two choruses basically sung at the same time. (It works to great effect though – just listen!) The mood shifts on the EP’s title track, a love song of sorts that promises “I’m never far” and details a romantic runaway over beautiful chords. Later, the band shows off its knack for catchy, tight guitar riffs on “Reward” and pushes its instrumental boundaries on the spacious outro track “Apollo.” Download Elka for free now over on the band’s Bandcamp page. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)

Sorority Noise to bring the commotion to Amherst

Riding on the release of May's Forgettable LP, Hartford's Sorority Noise is heading to Amherst, MA, next Monday, August 18. Fitting to its name, the band’s lyrics span the insecurities of college life – take, for example, “When we broke up you told me to try and find myself … so I found myself in someone else's bed,” from “Dirty Ickes” – but the band’s groovy punk inspires one to dance through the darkness rather than sulk alone. Check out Sorority Noise in Massachusetts’ most famous college town alongside Three Man Cannon, Sexy Girls, The Hundred Acre Woods and Amherst folk-punks Dérive at Amherst's Unitarian Meeting House at 7 p.m. on August 18. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)


THE DELI TORONTO IS ON!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

today's the day when The Deli goes international, eh! Please allow us to introduce you to... The Deli Toronto!


Grand Cousin celebrates at once farewell and release show at Arlene's (07.27)

“Bands are unstable molecules, bands don’t want to be bands, they want to fly apart. There’s always tension; I think a lot of that’s where the music comes from." You can find these words in the Mishka Shubali feature on our recent Ten Year Anniversary issue, and they certainly hit the nail on the head when applied to CT/NYC based indie pop band Grand Cousin, who find themselves in the peculiar position of celebrating - on the same night - an EP release show and a farewell party. The trio plays an intense brand of pop with folk tinges that's partly reminiscent of Jeff Buckley. Check out the recent video for single 'Oxygen' and - if you dig - enjoy the band's last show at Arlene's on 07.27
