Wild Pink

To check out at CMJ: Wild Pink plays Lit Lounge on 10.14

The CMJ Music Marathon is just a week away (bloody hell, not sure we trained hard enough for it this year...), and The Deli as always will focus its attention away from the bands everybody wants to see, to highlight instead those that too many will miss: the so called "emerging artists." NYC Wild Pink definitely belongs to the category, having released their debut, five track EP 'Good Life' this past June - although they were obviously on Pianos radar earlier than that. It's an electric record that (unexpectedly enough) does NOT quote Pavement nor Dinosaur Jr nor the grunge invasion of the '90s - the trio deserves one thumb up just for that. We hear a little bit of early Modest Mouse and Guided by Voices' earnest attitude here and there, but it's an overall interesting release, full of raw intensity and not afraid to slow down the tempo, like in tracks "Good Life" and River "Run RX." But since upbeat stuff is what most people want, we'll stream opening single "Is This Hotel Haunted?". Wild Pink will be performing at Lit Lounge (which apparently isn't closing anymore) on October 14th.


Brooklyn's Wild Pink reveal debut EP, "2 Songs" + lands Pianos residency

Brooklyn power trio Wild Pink just released their debut EP "2 song" (a not very "E" EP, since the original meaning of the acronym is "Extended Play") featuring two rather angular and bony power pop tracks in part reminiscent of that well of dark songwriting ideas that is Robert Pollard's Guided By Voices. The band has a series of shows scheduled in the immediate future, the first one at Pianos on January 22 within a three week residency.
