This Weekend: Captured Tracks celebrates 5 years with show at The Well

New York label Captured Tracks celebrates its 5th anniversary with a two day festival this weekend at The Well in Bushwick.

The Saturday show is headlined by breakout stars DIIV, who have redefined the standard for feel good guitar-bass interplay. Floating, reverberated vocals add to the joyous vibe that makes you want to dance and dream at the same time. Of equal importance on this night will surely be the romantic pop and classic hooks of MINKS. Their most recent release “Margot” is about as perfect a summer fall in love song one could possibly hope for. It’s the synth pop we loved in the 80’s with a truly engaging front vocalist and a chorus that tugs hard at your heart. Heavenly Beat, Chris Cohen and Blouse round out day 1.

Sunday’s show kicks off the first of the month with three homegrown acts whose prominence continues to rise. Widowspeak rightly places clear emphasis on Molly Hamilton's somnolent vocals and centralized presence. Guitarist Robert Earl Thomas keeps everything from getting too dreamy and sleepy, by ripping guitar lines with forceful clarity. Beach Fossils continue to grow and expand their sound in unpredictable ways. The signature piercing guitar sound remains, but is now driven along by a more powerful percussive element. Wild Nothing, Soft Metals, Alex Calder and a “Special Guest” round out this second night. - Dave Cromwell


NYC bands on the rise: Miko & The Musket

Miko & The Musket have the sound of a big band with something to prove. From Jazz-infused high octane harmonies, to Paul Simon-inspired tales of life across America, the band packs plenty of ammunition, and are set to convince everyone in their path of the virtues of how well folk can go with R&B when you have the right musicians behind it.

A remarkably young seven piece from New York, the band has a wide range of instrumentation covered. It shows it in new single 'On Your Mark' (streaming) where singer/main songwriter Miko de Leon pulls out all the stops with crazed harmonies, gnarled guitar lines, and some world-weary advice on how best to finish the race. Now the band's getting ready to go out on tour in preparation for the release of their upcoming self-titled EP next month. So they should be bringing their exhaustingly enthusiastic show back to New York soon. In the meantime, check out 'On Your Mark' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


From the Open Blog: an ode to postpunk - TerribalAnamal's new video

TeribalAnamal is a Brooklyn-based, art damaged trio that's been playing around NYC since 2012. Their music and vision references the legendary days of early post punk (late 70s), when semi-insane and heavily drugged up bands like Throbbing Gristle, Pere Ubu and Devo redefined rock's aesthetics through a series of claustrophobic, tense and provocative records, realized through a DIY approach to music borrowed from punk bands. They do a pretty good job at it in this video/song combo entitled "Mourning Dove." In their Open Blog entry they say: "Check out our EP on iTunes and Spotify if you want to, or if you don't want to that's cool too. There's tons of rad music out there, especially around NYC, so we totally understand if this escapes your radar or it's not your thing or whatever. Live long and prosper. Muah." - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here). The Deli's NYC Open Blog is powered by The Music Building.
