This band rules. Distorted guitar-based pop/rock songs with real love behind them. Rosie would never record something she didn't mean, and, for proof, check out their Soundcloud:

You know a band really means it when they only post one song! It's been this way for months, too. To be honest, though, Rosie and the Rosies really shine live. The guitar is louder, the vocals farther to the back, and the passion on her face in full view. Check out one of their shows around Boston.

Bostonians-in-the-know always go to Cambridge's monthly Cheap Seats event to discover new music, as it never disappoints. Last month, during a particularly great show, everyone was blown away by a young German woman who sampled and looped her dynamically complex vocals and cathartically banged on keyboard and buckets to create a danceable wall of sound unlike anything else this side of The Velvet Underground's Factory shows. Standing out among the crowd of greatness there is tough. Catch Tellavision before she moves out of Boston next year.

A sasquatch guzzling a glass bottle of milk, a bizarre karate/knife fight and a mysterious Final Fantasy-esque heroine--all this and more can be found in Here We Just Dream’s new video for their song “To Be Devoured.” It was released a few weeks ago, but I came across it last week and felt I had to alert all of you fine Deli readers about its oddly-captivating presence. The song itself is super tight, with airy arpeggios supported by a steady rhythm section. I’m more or less at a loss for words in describing the video, but it's so intriguing I wasn't able to look away.

If you're interested in checking the band out live, they'll be at The Middle East Upstairs on December 14. More info about that show can be found here. For updates about the band, check out their website.

Today, this song by Brooklyn (via Massachusetts) trio Howard is helping us make this Monday more bearable. We've never really been into Gregorian chants, but the way these guys integrate a melody reminiscent of those religious choirs with their post-rock arrangements is very interesting, rather comforting and totally cool. Kudos are due, in particular considering this is a completely self-produced effort. Howard, previously known as "Orange Television" in its MA version, will be playing Rockwood Music Hall on November 22. Their album "Religion" will be out soon.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

From Jake Saunders' report of Day 5 of the CMJ 2014 Music Marathon. " The first set I caught [at the Exploding in Sound unofficial CMJ show] was Rick Maguire of Pile's solo set.  Now Pile might be the king of all Exploding in Sound bands, having possibly been around the longest (don't quote me on that; Aaron Maine of Porches might've been around longer going under many different names since settling on Porches). They're a band whose live show has more soul and power than I've seen possibly ever.  A lot of that energy comes from Rick Maguire, whose songs are like daggers to the gut; honest and thought provoking, he's got a presence on the stage that's hard to match.  Pile is a band that has come a long way, and is a band worth researching because they bring something special out in people, take my word for it.
