Tense surf-punks Wild Bore play Pianos, Rock Shop and Cakeshop in a month

"Holy Crap!" - that's the first reaction we had while playing "Mine" by NYC female trio Wild Bore. In that track the three ladies beware as wildly as your average punk rocker circa 1977, while incorporating surf and post punk elements in their explosive sound. They have three singles out so far, all released in the second half of 2014. "Eddi Munster" is some kind of "half blues" featuring a Devo-esque vocal line - only less robotic and more psycho. "Mon Amie, Elise" - streaming below - is the tamer track of the bunch, but not necessarily the less tense. It also features a chord change, which here at the Deli we very much appreciate! You have three chances to see Wild Bore in NYC in the next few weeks: Pianos on 11.24, Rock Shop on 12.04 and Cakeshop on 12.19.


Nick Harris

Nick Harris has released a new solo album called Night Terrors. Nick has played with several bands around Chicago including The Kuhls.


Mya Byrne releases "As I Am" + plays The Living Room tomorrow (11.22)

Transformations are at once the most painful and liberating processes we can experience, and can be also among the most inspiring. This past spring, Delicious Audio contributor and Americana performing artist Mya Byrne (previously known as Jeremiah Birnbaum) came out as a transgender woman. After this breakthrough, a period of intense creativity followed, which brought to life the songs in Mya's debut album "As I Am." This is an inspired collection of folky, personal songs that mostly reflect influences from the golden years of folk-rock, from Joni Mitchell's jazzy, disarming sincerity to Neil Young's evocative, twangy poetry, with some exceptions veering towards blues and old timey. Opening track "April Fool" is a testament to change, which, filtered through Mya's experience, is an explosively complicated - and therefore fertile - issue, in particular for the people who surround her: "And in me you see a stranger, someone you thought you knew, ink spilled, a quill collapsed on the last line of a picture you drew." Mya will be playing at The Living Room's new Williamsburg location on November 22. - photo by Emily Raw


Rosies and the Rosies Will Rock You

This band rules. Distorted guitar-based pop/rock songs with real love behind them. Rosie would never record something she didn't mean, and, for proof, check out their Soundcloud:

You know a band really means it when they only post one song! It's been this way for months, too. To be honest, though, Rosie and the Rosies really shine live. The guitar is louder, the vocals farther to the back, and the passion on her face in full view. Check out one of their shows around Boston.


Pants Velour shows crack in new video + plays McKittrick Hotel on 12.18

NYC's Pants Velour work hard to represent the self-imposed genre of “irreverent hip hop.” It’s a moniker with a broad scope despite its apparent narrow-mindedness, but the band remains undeterred. MCs Josh Raff, Eli Northrup, and Niki Darling hoist a freak flag of such resplendent snark that it’s hard not to get behind (pun intended). In their new video for “Taxidermist” they pop references from Howie Mandel to Handel to Hanson all while preaching to “stuff that beaver - taxidermist.” The beat is perfect for grinding hips or teeth. That much is up to you.  - BrokeMc

Pants Velour is scheduled to play at the McKittrick Hotel on December 18
