Chinatown's own Hip Hop phenomenon: The Notorious MSG

The Notorious MSG is Chinatown's one and only Chinese hip hop band. Besides hopping on stage and on record, the guys also make "educational" videos like this one (from the series "Schoolhousin' ", focusing on the many interesting and "different" habits of our Manhattan based neighbors - hey, you can't say these boys don't come from the ghetto! I highly recommend to watch at least the first 30 seconds of this video.


The Deli's 5th Year Anniversary shows in W'Burg: BEST OF NYC FEST!!!

A new shoegazing experience: Me You Us Them release debut CD

Me You Us Them is the name of the latest addition to the NYC shoegazer scene. This band's impressive wall of guitars rivals in "My-Bloody-Valentine-ness" that of Asobi Seksu's first album - I'd recommend any follower of the toe staring sonic cult to check out these guys' tunes. (By the way, why they call it shoegazer and not toestarer is beyond me). The record release show is April 25th at The Studio @ Webster Hall in NYC.


(Secret Life of) Sofia gives birth to Milagres

Fans and Deli readers alike will know Milagres by their former name, Secret Life of Sofia, who took home the bronze in the Deli Magazine’s Reader Poll Best of 2008.  More recently, their “Empty Sleeve” album earned them a top-ten ranking in the Best EPs of 2009 list on Pop Tarts Suck Toasted.  Milagres say they’re happier now with the name change, presumably because it is representative of a deeper and more meaningful transformation for the band.  Currently at work on a new album, the only track released thus far is “Lost in the Dark” (Demo). Though the title may represent a necessary step in any major change, the band continues to come across as fearless.  One song may be too small of a sample size to go on, but based on the beautifully ghost-like vocal melodies backed by dreamy and swelling instrumentation, one gets the sense that the band is in fact further developing an already great sound. - PJD
