Rough Trade's Best Albums of the Year: Big Thief, Cigarettes After Sex, The National and Parquet Courts

If you ask us "how's the NYC scene doing these days?" we'll respond with a mixed feelings kind of answer. But even though the local scene is undoubtedly going through some rough times (mostly caused by the excessive cost of the city and the extreme gentrification of Williamsburg), it has still managed to express some very fine music in 2017. Or at least that's what Rough Trade believes, since they just released a list of the Best 20 Records of 2017 that features four albums released by NYC based artists:

Big Thief's Capacity (on the cover of our Winter 2016 issue of The Deli) placed in 4th position. 

Cigarettes After Sex's self titled debut LP placed in 6th position. 

- The National's Sleep Well Beast placed in 14th position

Daniele Luppi & Parquet Courts' Milano placed in 16th position.

Four out of twenty, that's A LOT, congrats NYC scene!

Here's a YouTube playlist of these artists' most popular songs from their 2017 releases.





New Track: "I'm Blue" - Blue Velvet

There’s a thin threshold between lovesick and downhearted. “I’m Blue,” from Blue Velvet, threads multifaceted harmony with persistent acoustic strums to find that space. With an aching plea that is delivered through a vintage 60’s pop framework, the song runs through an emotional spectrum. As romantic optimism transitions/moves on, the vocals lift one through the blues.

Born Animal premiere single "Snake Eyes"

The Nashville Deli is proud to exclusively premiere "Snake Eyes", the newest single from local alt-rockers Born Animal. The song "is about realizing that you may not be the same person you once were," says lead singer Ryan Stowe. That personal change is a fact of life Born Animal express here with driving guitars which give way to a breakdown outro, as the song takes on a markedly different tone. The band has been chosen as Lightning 100's local artist of the week. So catch them on the radio, especially as they premiere their new EP Celebration Revolution on Lightning's Friday Afternoon Live on December 1st! And be sure to check out the track below!

The Veldt supports Modern English on tour, plays Rough Trade on 11/22

NYC dream-rockers The Veldt’s latest EP Thanks to the Moth and Areanna Rose delivers seven new tracks that undoubtedly connect with their long-time followers, while potentially appealing to a new generation only recently discovering this sound. Opener “The Color of Love is Blue,” with its ethereal vocals and descending chord progression performed through tightly-coiled, clipped-chime guitar work, evokes Robin Guthrie and The Cocteau Twins, with an added, slight soul inflection. Streamlined percussive elements solidify the homage, reflecting the boldly struck accents so prevalent on classic albums “Heaven Or Las Vegas” and “Four Calendar Café.” Currently on tour supporting Modern English, the band will be playing Rough Trade in Brooklyn on 11/22. - Dave Cromwell

Debut RunHideFight Demo EP Available for Streaming

Geeta Simons (Rockula, Swisher) packed away the guitar and amp to finish up her education, get married, and eventually raise two girls. However, she began to get what Jo Anne from Thorazine described as "The 7 Year Itch": "That hunger that hits when our children are old enough (7 years old) that they don’t mind if Mom stays out late to turn up to 11." Simons decided to take over the kids' playroom for a little me time and record an EP of blistering garage-rock demos under the moniker of RunHideFight, with help from Hot Snakes' Jason Kourkounis on drums and Otherworld Traditions' Jay Demko on bass, as well production duties. You can stream it below, and catch Simons scratching that itch tonight at Johnny Brenda's, where she'll be backed by Deli fave Brother JT, Stinking Lizaveta's Cheshire Agusta, and Christine Weiser (of Mae Pang and Suffacox). They'll be opening for legendary Cleveland rock outfit Pere Ube and Minibeast, which features Peter Prescott (Mission Of Burma, Volcano Suns).
