Samamidon CD release party at 92YTribeca on April 10

We've always liked Samamidon's alt-country (and that's one of the reasons why we made his debut album Deli CD of the month some time in 2008). His alt country - unlike the music of a more established band that coined the genre - is quite literally... alt country. This singer-banjoist's repertoire is made up of re-arranged American folk songs, drawing simultaneously on his experiences growing up a child of folk musicians in Vermont and his more recent work in New York with the experimental indie-rock bands Doveman and Stars Like Fleas. Don't miss the CD release party at 92YTribeca on April 10 - Doveman's lead Thomas Bartlett will be the opena.

Best of NYC #63a: We Are Country Mice, live at Cake Shop, April 8

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list here (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record sotre personnel and DJs). Many of the bands in this list will play The Deli's Best of NYC Fest in Williamsbur on May (6 shows in 3 different venues between the 13 and the 15).

Blowing into Brooklyn from Kansas, We Are Country Mice front man Jason Krueger brought the dusty, county music sound with him. Krueger’s farm-boy background may be all over the band’s music (sample song title: ‘A Good Old Fashioned Barn Raising’), but hooking up with his new group in a new city has opened some creative doors. “I grew up in the one of the most rural settings there is and now live in a huge metropolis. Out here I’m challenged every day with new sounds yet my roots keep my feet grounded in the dirt. That push and pull can be found in our music.”

NYC Artists on the rise: Chappo releases debut CD, Glasslands 04.23

Chappo is a NYC electro rock band with a new EP that meshes all sorts of influences, from the playful approach to music reminiscent of Beck to the spacey atmospheres of Air, to occasional funk rock rhythms, hip hop references and noisy distorted guitars. We really like the vocals attitude and the fun approach. Definitely worth checking out their live show at Glasslands on April 23.

Blank Dogs - a mainly a one-man recording project by songwriter Mike Sniper from Brooklyn, and currently a three-piece live band featuring Pamela Garavano-Coolbaugh and Craig Mileski - play dark lo fi pop with cold synth lines, surfy guitar hooks and angular basslines.

Best of NYC #65: Julianna Barwick

We continue our "Best of NYC Countdown", covering every day one of the artists that made our Year End Best of NYC list here (a chart compiled by a jury comprised of local bloggers, music writers, promoters, record sotre personnel and DJs). Many of the bands in this list will play The Deli's Best of NYC Fest in Williamsbur on May (6 shows in 3 different venues between the 13 and the 15).

Julianna Barwick is a one-woman choir, a skyscraper of bliss, a monumental swirl of ghostly energy. Moving mountains by using little more than a loop pedal and her crystal-clear voice, Barwick is the epitome of DIY energy. Put her in front of a microphone and it’s a punk rock take on new age, the scrappy basement show rocker making something drone-heavy, churchlike, meditative. Her triumphant phonemes are never mumbled or moaned, but confidently belted from the rafters. Think Kate Bush’s most heartwarming dreampop untethered from the shackles or rhythm or instruments or form or pop; just one heavenly, angelic coo multi-tracked into a prismatic haze. - Christopher R. Weingarten
