Ejecta meets our expectations with nude video for "Eleanor Lye" + tours with Sleigh Bells

Oscar Wilde's quote "I can resist anything but temptations" can be applied both to Ejecta's new video for single "Eleanor Lye" (will the nudity "convince" you to watch it?) and... to this post's title. But hey, we think we earned the right to use that cheapish headline, because we totally predicted this kind of unveiling in our previous post about the Brooklyn duo, who famously promoted their debut LP through a series of au naturel pictures of lead singer Leanne Macomber advertised/posted on Pitchfork. Ok, we'll admit it, wasn't that hard to guess. But we are truly wondering how well this promotional idea is working for the band, and how much is actually distracting people (dudes in particular) from their music. For example - as you can see from this post - we are completely distracted. Ejecta is currently touring with Sleigh Bells. Check out the new video here (you may not want to watch it if you are in a public place).


A NYC band between ambient and post hardcore: Jerkagram

Brooklyn trio Jerkagram, formed by twin brothers Brent & Derek Gaines, brings you a special blend of post hardcore, math rock, post rock and ambient. Their twisting, seductively repetitive riffs are arousing and hypnotizing at once. They released their debut LP titled 'Let's Talk About Us' last month and it features a fair amount of laid back tunes to kick back to (at least until the menacing guitar build up wakes you up). An exception to the rule is single "Animal Magnetism," a punchy math-rock gem that concedes no rest for the ears - check it out below. - Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)


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


Romantic Rebel @ Double Door

The aggressive rock band Romantic Rebel are about to release their self-titled debut album via Pavement Entertainment. The album is a thunderous assault filled with stadium anthems and blazing guitar solos including one from Brendon Small of Metalocalypse fame.

You can catch Romantic Rebel at Double Door on April 18th in support of Last Vegas.


Ghost To Falco (Album Release) // Aan // 4.11.14

Ghost to Falco have been shaping and re-shaping their experimental psych/prog rock sound in Portland since 2001, under the guiding hand of Eric Crespo. Friday night at Bunk Bar, the band will release their fourth album Soft Shield through Itialian based Fooltribe Records. GTF will be joined by the brilliant experimental popsters Aan, whose February release Amor Ad Nauseum was featured as the Deli Portland's last Album of the Month (view our current Album of the Month, Polyester Itch by Hands In here). Seattle’s Dragging an Ox through Water open the night at 9pm. The cover is $7 and worth every penny.

Check out GTF's video for their first single, 'Born to Win,' off Soft Shield.

New Video: "Statue of Gordon" (EXCEPTER remix) - Aunt Dracula

Here is a new video from Aunt Dracula for “Statue of Gordon” off of their upcoming remix LP Peel Face. The churning, industrial remix by EXCEPTER is hypnotic and relentless, while the trippy, lo-fi VHS clips twist and warp with the eight minute freak-pop epic.


The French Lips "Stray Dogs"

Was there a better way to start a week than with a lineup of female leads? The East Room hosted "The Ladies of Rock" on Monday, April 7th, and among them were New York transplants The French Lips. Vocalist Sophie Kadow possesses a smoky voice that has a strong capacity to kick ass. The East Room lent the kind of dirty that Monday night drinking calls for with a stellar line-up including Kelly Ruth, The Dead Deads, and Lady E and the Blacklight.  All of these groups deserve greater attention, but the slow burn of "Stray Dogs" warrants your immediate concentration, so you can pick up on the nuances of Kadow's exchanges with the growing guitar noise in the track. Those lucky enough to catch the show (and ignore the thought of working on Tuesday morning) will agree how phenomenal the song was live.  -Amanda Aydelott


High Def preps "Milk and Honey" EP

Boston’s High Def falls somewhere between jazz, R&B and hip hop – and they proved they can captivate an audience at Emerson College’s Cabaret this past Tuesday, alongside other R&B up-and-comers like Raquel Rodriguez and Anthony Hall. The band is currently prepping its debut EP, Milk and Honey, but you can take a listen to its latest release below. “Definition” shows the band at its best; although vocalist Brandon Donick can croon, the track's rap-along chorus was undeniably an audience favorite. And those keys! As an added bonus, you can check out a live cover of Blackstreet’s “No Diggity” on the group’s SoundCloud page. – Jake Reed, @jakejreed


Denitia and Sene release video for "Divided"

denetia and sene. - besides being an editor's nightmare, with their lower case name and period at the end of it - were probably the best live act at our 2013 CMJ Marathon electronic showcase at The Delancey. The Brooklyn duo plays music that - if hard pressed - we would label as "trip'n'b," with many similarities to Tricky's early records without the rap component or the British artist's insane 'bakedness'. They just unveiled this dark video for single "Divided," a single that was produced by twin brother producers Christian Rich (Pharrell Williams/N.E.R.D, Pusha T, Lupe Fiasco) as part of a Red Bull Sound Select mentor collaboration.
