Shiny Wet Machine to bring their indie/punk to Webster Hall 4/23

Bewitching enough to draw you in, but posessing the raw power of an ever edging powder keg, Brooklyn-based duo, Shiny Wet Machine is a sublime blend of indie rock and punk aesthetic. A project uniting Sizzy Rocket and Alex Fitts (aka the Kickdrums), Shiny Wet Machine's tracks are infectious, hip-shaking tunes with unapologetically jagged teeth--sugar and spice and whatever manages to fall in between. Check out what can only be an explosive set when the band plays the Studio at Webster Hall 4/23, but in the meantime stream new track "Euphoria" below. - Olivia Sisinni





Weekend Warrior, April 21 - 23

Rowdy, restless, riff-charged Dark Web tied us in with their self-titled album (The Deli Philly’s April Record of the Month). This Saturday, their nonstop sewer punk sounds serve as the primer for a Record Store Day lineup at Repo Records that doesn’t quit. The stampeding, snarling, punk anthems of Posers enter the fray, while a fire-breathing, raw-rock fury explodes from the down and dirty exploits of Residuels. The murky, mystic, synth-laced, darkwave of Remote Control will dial you in, and sticky, psych grooves and sweltering exploratory guitar runs set off the closing solo set from Purling Hiss

As the day dwindles down, Eris Temple Arts will host the release show for chamber-folk ensemble On the Water’s new EP Superposition. Whether dashing forward in exuberant rock or swaying in reflective melodies, Dominic resonates. Potentially showcasing material from their forthcoming album Burn Bridges, Burn Pies, the Mad-Hattered, quirky concoctions of OhBree is on the slate, as are the adventurous-eclectic instrumentation merged with captivating songwriting of Dear Rabbit. The duo of Baby & Shylow, which features Aleks Martray (Grandchildren), kicks off the proceedings. - Michael Colavita

PREMIERE: Keeper Keeper - "Sticky Bomb"

Fun loving alternative surf trio Keeper Keeper are coming out with a brand new EP in a couple of days, and today they're sharing a new track to go along with it.

"Sticky Bomb" is the second song from their upcoming Paradigm EP. The track boasts an excitable, beach-cowboy feel while being a mixture between a song of love and a song of lust. About the song, the band share that "'Sticky Bomb' is an ode to one sexy creature named Anna with a firecracker tattooed on her perfect ass!" Fun and fiery, this track and "White Bear," the first to be released, give good insight into what the rest of the Paradigm EP sounds like.

Keeper Keeper is having their release show for the new mini collection of songs this Saturday at Kelly's Olympian. Playing with them will be Mobilities, Salo Panto and Low Flyer. Snag tickets to the show for just $5 so you can catch them before they hit the road next month on a tour in support of the EP.





Cat Tatt releases debut album 'Litter' + plays benefit Mini-Fest on 04.22

Brooklyn duo Cat Tatt just released their debut album, Litter, an austere, wall-shaking indie-rock record with a sensitive core. Mem Pahl’s guitar work is varied throughout, with jangly math-rock influenced outros contrasting the fuzzy doom riffs you find in tracks like “In/Different” (streaming below). The song explores the hypocritical and binary way we often treat love and pain. Sarcastically, Mem snarls “Not that kinda pain, or the other kind of pain, but another kind of pain.” Replace “pain” with “love” and you have the tune's climax. Simple wordplay, but it evokes something at once personal and universal.

Cat Tatt will be playing April 22nd at a “Mini-fest” benefit for Earthday in Bushwick. Proceeds are going to environmental groups Sierra Club and Uprose. - Martin D. Ritchie

Band on the rise: Shinning Mirrors' old-school garage with a modern pop twist

The word "music revival" normally implies two sorts of bands: acts that try and recreate authentic facsimiles of history, and others that hold a mirror to the past, drawing inspiration from it while opening fresh dialogues and contributing something new to the conversation. Brooklyn-based Shining Mirrors is the latter kind of band, reflecting their influences in gritty garage and indie rock and yet possessing a sound whose time period is much more difficult to place. The track's quality pop songwriting is in part reminiscent of the overlooked Scottish genius of the '80s Lloyd Cole & the Commotions. Check out  below "Everybody is Christ," (a track that ends with a quote of a quote, the Ramones quoting the Rivieras) and see what I mean. - Olivia Sisinni

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