Stream: Katie Gately, "Lift"

The haunting discord of Katie Gately’s new single, “Lift”, has everyone up in arms. With over 400 different layers, this ex sound producer for film has created an aesthetic ode to her own childhood that everyone can relate too. Gately mentions in an interview with Complete Music Update that her favorite childhood sounds were ‘fireworks, high-pitched screams, claps, smacks and stomps’, noises I am sure we all can relate to and remember. So soak in the nostalgic sound of an eccentric childhood dream in Gately’s Colors come October 14th. Your memories will be glad you did. - Kayla Hay


Hidden Ritual Adventure After-hours in New Single "Rat"

Austin indie rockers Hidden Ritual is coming out with its sophomore album Always, scheduled for release on October 21 via Monofonus Press. They recently debuted its first single, "Rat," over at Impose Magazine earlier today. The song is mainly derived from the band's adventures after-hours with friends in LA in 2013, and you can feel a wandering urgency within the track's instrumentation that simply gives you an adrenaline rush.

Shanshala debuts in style with "Closed"

We talked a bit about Shanshala when the behemoth collaborative effort Creepier Than Family dropped early this year and we've been low-key creeping on those social media channels to see what would come next. Next has come, and it's taken the form of the full-length Closed. It's an eclectic album taking fruits from the disparate branches of the musical tree and coating them with a thick, hallucinatory goop that binds it all together. Highly recommended if you're the kind of person who people have learned not to ask what kind of music they enjoy. -Austin Phy

Buzz Alert: The Royal They mix garage and indie rock vibes on self titled album

Brooklyn-based trio, The Royal They serve up chunky punk rhythms with some serious melody writing chops. On their latest release, a self-titled EP, indie rock vibes are paired with deceptively heavy garage rock licks. It's control and chaos, nice and nasty. Check out the Royal They streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

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