December 2014
Frankie Cosmos
"Zentropy
"
mp3

If you like unassuming, short and charming pop songs about high school, firemen and buses, look no further than 19 year old singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos. In her just released first full-length 'Zentropy,' (though she's put out at least 40 other digital records on Bandcamp over the years - no joke!) Greta Kline reveals much of her inner child, whether singing about what her dad is up to or how birthdays don't mean you're getting older. But 'Zentropy' equally exposes a young lady just beginning to wrestle with explorations of love and life anxieties. It's a fascinating journey just begun, and songs like "Birthday" (streaming below), showcase a melodic talent that's not afraid to experiment with tempo changes and assorted influences, without losing her signature, intimate style. 
If Frankie Cosmos manages to keep half these levels of prolificity in her 20s, we can definitely expect a bunch of hits from her. Because great music - like everything else - is all about trying hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Cloud Becomes Your Hand
""Rock of Cakes"
"
mp3

Psychedelia is often associated with big guitar parts, lots of reverb, and a sound that's at once surreal and epic - I guess that's the heritage left by bands like The Doors and Pink Floyd. But there's a less grandiose, more playful and varied current of psychedelia, more interested in the bizarrely kaleidoscopic side of dreaming. Forged and explored in depth by The Beatles, it was rehashed most famously by Olivia Tremor Control at the turn of the millennium, and less famously (but brilliantly) by XTC with their side project The Dukes of Stratosphear in the mid 80s. This is the sonic ground were Brooklyn's Cloud Becomes Your Hand draws inspiration, adding to the mix their penchant for crooked, almost jazzy melodies, which place them on similar songwriting terrain as other heavily experimental but gentle sounding NYC bands like Dirty Projectors and Celestial Shore (both past Deli Records of the Month). These elements make of "Rock of Cakes" a psych-pop album without pop melodies (therefore not really pop music) but nonetheless extremely imaginative and enjoyable. Stream the full album here and see the band live at Roulett on Sunday 03.02.

From the Digital Submissions: the multi-faceted funk of Evolfo Doofeht

The first time I heard Boston/NYC based, funk-jazz-gypsy band Evolfo Doofeht I had one thought: the sax back! And it's about time too. In songs like 'You Light Me Up,' the tenor horn solo has enough energy to pull you out into satellite orbit.

Sometimes sounding fast and furious, almost like a metal group with a horn line, other times smoother like high line klezmer jazz with a highly energetic frontman, this band never lets you down on the brass section department, and - as they say in their self-titled track - 'You need to get down with Evolfo Doofeht.' Solid advice. You can see these guys live on Friday, May 16th at Radio Bushwick with Bad Credit No Credit or the day after at Boston's Harpoon Brewery - it will be fun. Check out their most recent single 'Mechanicals' below. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

This band submitted their music for coverage here.

New Video: "Every Day Is a Widow" (On the Hill Session) - Psalmships

Psalmships (a.k.a. Joshua Britton) stopped by Kettle Pot Tracks towards the end of last year to record an On the Hill Session. Below is a video of him performing "Every Day Is a Widow," which will be on his upcoming album I Sleep Alone. You'll also find an impassioned rendition of "Yven," off 2008's Sings Like A Priest. Psalmships will be performing in the area on Saturday May 3 at Newtown Square's Burlap and Bean with Hezekiah Jones. (Photo by Mike Batchelor)

Bad Energy Raise the Dead at Golden Tea House April 23

Tonight, Golden Tea House hosts a bill designed to fill your hardcore needs. Locals Bad Energy, whose latest EP, Dead Magic, is a true instant flash of concentrated power - an example of unfiltered emotional release with ramped up yet focused instrumental leads that provide abbreviated sonic surges. (You can check it out in its entirety below). Joining Bad Energy will be Long Beach’s Stoic Violence, who recently dropped a dark, smashing record entitled Chained, and chaotic English outfit No, who are headlining the evening. Golden Tea House, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $7, All Ages - Michael Colavita
