Mood Music: Fleshh... - "New Revue"

Even though spring is trying to add little pops of color to our lives with flowers and five seconds worth of blue skies, the dark tendencies of post punk are still the most appealing. Thankfully, there's a new act on the scene to help fulfill our needs.

New electronic/anarcho/post-punk duo Fleshh... just dropped their debut in early March, and it's already catching attention left and right. Vocalist and synth player Tim Iserman describes the sounds he makes with drummer Mark Onyx as being "early George Michael meets late stage Morrissey" with a bit of Fad Gadget. That designation is incredibly fitting, as it's stripped down and minimal while still holding its intrigue. A nice blend of droney noise, electro beats and a subdued vocals, it's exciting to see what they'll be releasing next.

Catch Fleshh... TONIGHT at Dante's with Terror Apart, Caustic Touch and Contact Cult or with Italy's Horror Vacui and locals Vice Device, Bellicose Minds and Vacant Stares on 5/6 at Black Water.





Deli Sponsored The Hum returns in May at Good Room and LPR

The Hum is a critically acclaimed, month-long weekly residency featuring first-time collaborative live performances from a curated line-up of NYC-based female musicians. Since the inaugural edition in April 2015, over 150 artists have participated in the series, representing a diverse array of female musicians of all ages and levels of notoriety, as well as a variety of musical genres and instruments. Presented, produced, and curated by Rachael Pazdan (Music Director at Le Poisson Rouge and LPR Presents), this small scale series has become a fixture in New York’s music community, and The Deli has been a proud sponsor of it since its inception.

In its 5th installment, The Hum will take place Mondays in May (sans Memorial Day) at Good Room [98 Meserole Ave] and on Thursday, May 25 at Le Poisson Rouge. Tickets are now on sale, exclusively at LPR.com and at the Le Poisson Rouge box office. 

The Hum will feature over 60 female artists this May, including members of Speedy Ortiz, Cibo Matto, Au Revoir Simone, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Beverly, Sad13, Escort, and more, paired with artists including Angel Deradoorian, The Blow, Eartheater, Caroline Rose, and many others. Here's the full schedule.

Pleasure Prince bring their sensual synth pop to Don Pedro’s on 4/22

“When that synth hits you just right” is the descriptive tagline Brooklyn duo Pleasure Prince displays on their Instagram account.  That is certainly a fitting description for a sound that weaves pulsating keys with an emotionally soulful pop vocal sensibility. On their slow groove track "You Look Good To Me" (streaming below) a mood of heightened sensual attraction pervades the soundscape, as hooky synth lines and electronic percussion take hold.  Other tracks like “Lines for George” feature reverberated female vocals that echo the sweetness and retro-futuristic sci-fi edge of the much beloved Broadcast.  However “Evening Queen” surprises by removing the synths, allowing the lushly produced alternating male and female vocals to take center stage.  Pleasure Prince play next on 4/22 at Don Pedro. - Dave Cromwell

Buzz Alert! Ageless brings world big beat to Rough Trade and The Knit within a week

If you ever played in a band, you must be familiar with the "two weeks rule" requested by live venues (often extended to a month), and consisting in asking artists to abstain from playing any other shows within 14 days of the one already booked. Well, that's obviously something that doesn't concern NYC's electronic project Ageless, since it's scheduled to perform live at both Rough Trade and The Knit within eight days (04.28 and 05.06, respectively). Considering those rooms aren't exactly small, this fact, alone, earns the one man band a "NYC Buzz Alert." The brainchild of NY native Wes Paioff, Ageless concocts danceable electronic music reminiscent of the UK's big beat of the '90s (think Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim) but dressed with hip hop, soul and a million other influences (including, in new album 'Perfect World,' afrobeat and ragamuffin). No wonder he states in his bio: "At some point I started producing music exactly as it's always sounded in my head. Not bound to any specific Genre, but influenced by many genres." If we were you, we'd check out one of those two dates.

Moonray Teases New Release with "Hand of Queens"

The synthpop flame has flickered recently, signalling a decline of dance-centric synth artists that straddle the line of indie rock and electronica. However there are some out there still holding true - Moonray is Jonray and Barb, an alternative duo/couple that emits positive messages through 80's influenced beats, intimate vocals and, buliding choruses. Moonray derives from a dark place that is used as the music's bedrock, but the songs themselves are beams of light proving resilient and victorious simultaenously. A curious balance of humbleness and grandiosity makes their music heartfelt and enervating simultaneously. Moonray released their debut EP Freedom From The Realm in 2014 and is expecting to follow it up with Digital Moon this Summer in 2017. Check out "Hand of Queens"  off of their upcoming album.
