Grunge rockers Big Cheese drop new LP "Supersonic Nothing"

The Nirvana comparisons for Brooklyn's own Big Cheese are really easy - and definitely there - but complemented by other unexpected influences - for example, in Adam Patten's vocals we hear a little of Soul Coughing, a criminally underrated Brooklyn band from the late '90s. Supersonic Nothing, the Big Cheese's latest LP, is a lo-fi whirlwind combining sludgy, sledge hammer riffs with vocals that always seem to be teetering on the brink of a nervous collapse. If grunge isn't dead, Big Cheese are the ones who are here to prove it. Check out their new music video "Thank You" below. - Olivia Sisinni

Malion Exudes Dirgy Grunge Themes On New "Underground" Video

 Malion are a trio of grunge purveyors who exude dirgy garage rock sounds with harrowing vocals.  Having released their first EP back in 2014, Malion just released  their latest EP, Troglodyte, which bubbles and ruptures into a sludge-filled void of musical darkness.  The band’s latest music video for their song “Underground” mirrors their sound in it’s roughshod production and depiction of grimy downtown ennui.  While Malion may still be an ‘underground’ band, they’ve got an oddly infectious disaffected charm that seeps through to listeners.  Check out their new music video here:

Pinkwash Plays Host to Slow Mass at Everybody Hits Sept. 30

Situated along the western edge of Northern Liberties on Girard is batting cage and DIY venue Everybody Hits, who this week will be hosting a stacked set headed by Philly's own Pinkwash.  The duo of Joey Doubek and Ashley Arnwine churns out intensely gripping tunes that are as swift as they are leaden, captivating a wide array of attention in the music community, while finding homes for their releases on labels Sister Polygon and Don Giovanni Records. The band’s name is derived from the term "pinkwashing," which refers to the often unregulated practice of companies aligning their products and brands with cancer awareness and LGBTQ movements without necessarily contributing to those causes. Pinkwash will be joined by fellow Philadelphians Lithuania and Loose Tooth, as well as Chicago-based musical outlet Slow Mass. Slow Mass are currently on tour in support of their new EP Treasure Pains, released earlier this month via Landland. They draw sonic inspiration from associated acts Into It. Over It., My Dad and Former Thieves, while distinguishing their new project as an exciting endeavor with plenty of potential for new material. Everybody Hits, 527 W. Girard Ave., 8pm, $8, All Ages - Josh Kelly

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!
