THE SOLE PURSUIT - INDIE PROG ROCK

Here's some prog-indie rock from the 'burbs of Brampton. The Sole Pursuit kick off their album "Flower City After Dark" with an epic instrumental intro on the track "Ashes". The vocals would make it or break it at this point and singer Kyle Dawe comes in with enough intensity to keep this track rolling. Aggressive guitar and interesting arrangements are the key ingredients for the Soul Pursuit. Listen to the album on their bandcamp page. - Kris Gies





What Was Sound is the Perfect Alternative Festival for the Holiday Weekend

Originally, celebrating this year's Memorial Day weekend was highlighted by a much-wanted performance by Frank Ocean at the Sasquatch Music Festival in the Columbia Gorge. But, in true Frank Ocean fashion, fans were faked out as he dropped off one of the headlining slots. In all honesty, heading out to the Gorge is a hassle anyway, especially when the chance of running into Fred Armisen, who's got a set of his own at the fest, is ever increased. Thank goodness the first annual What Was Sound Fest is happening, so much closer to home, with so much less hipster novelty to deal with.

Sub Rosa Curation teamed up with the Portland Mercury, Do503, Next Northwest, XRAY.fm and the Rose City Festival to bring Brooklyn dream rockers DIIV and El Ten Eleven's mellow post-rock with everyone's favorite indie folkers Woods and Fruit Bats down to Tom McCall Waterfront Park. Local support from Bed., the 11 piece funky afrobeat of Jujuba, Small Leaks Sink Ships and the recently added Sunbathe round the lineup out with some good balance in their first year.

Next Northwest and Vortex Music Magazine are hosting a free What Was Sound launch party tonight at White Owl Social Club, featuring a performance from Small Leaks Sink Ships. Come through and get a sneak peek of what will be happening at Waterfront Park on Saturday, and listen to the newest Small Leaks' track "Dancing Devil" below.





Vivienne Eastwood release video for 'NONS,' play Brooklyn Bazaar on 5/28

Premiering their latest video “Nons” exclusively here on The Deli, dreampoppers Vivienne Eastwood present a gazey journey of internal discovery.   The track’s slow motion groove, rising bassline and dramatic guitar melody would seem the perfect match for David Lynch’s newly revived Twin Peaks franchise.  With a languid minor chord feel, images of sea creatures in fish tanks are superimposed over pensive looking band members.  Mysterious notations like the wording “Friedrichsthalii 1999” appear momentarily before disappearing under the aquatics.  Using cinematic techniques like split-screen allows for dual image storytelling and a multi-view experience.  While angelic background vocals create lush emotional peaks, it’s the calmer moments that ultimately provide for deeper reflection.  Vivienne Eastwood will be playing at Brooklyn Bazaar on 5/28 with Surf Rock Is Dead and Melt. - Dave Cromwell

New Video: Five Years Release Show - Square Peg Round Hole

The instrumental trio of Square Peg Round Hole recently shared its new EP, entitled Five Years. A rejuvenating, meditative calm washes over you, as one observes the encircling environment to blossom. Through subtle points of illumination, a beautiful vividness emerges. You can stream the album in its entirety HERE, and you can also view a video created by Vic Firth below, featuring a performance of the full album from the band's release show at the IceBox Project Space, as well as four reimagined arrangements of older Square Peg Round Hole songs. The group was accompanied by Joshua Chase Miller, Tessa K Ellis, and Anna Meadors, providing guest vocals, guitar, saxophone, and flugelhorn.





Final night of The Hum with Deradoorian, Eartheater, The Blow, Chaos Chaos + more

The final night of The Hum 2017 (a series featuring female NYC musicians collaborating live organized by LPR presents and sponsored by The Deli NYC) reserves a truly spectacular line up that must not be missed. From The Blow's synth pop gems to Eartheater's haunting experimentation, the talent on display is remarkable and absolutely in line with what we here at The Deli expect from artists active in a scene famous for its edge. On the bill also indie pop sister duo Chaos Chaos, droney vocalist Deradoorian (of Dirty Projector fame), Miho Hatori of Cibo Matto and experimental artists Ikue Mori and Clarice Jensen.

Check out this awesome compilation of the songs by the artists in tonight's bill we found on SoundCloud!
