Free Download: "I Feel Extra-Natural" (LVL UP Cover) - Slaughter Beach, Dog

Slaughter Beach, Dog, a.k.a. Modern Baseball's Jake Ewald, has released a cover of LVL UP’s “I Feel Extra-Natural,” found on Hoodwink’d. The acoustic strumming pattern, subtle keys and softly interlaced vocals play into the song’s delicate, emotive nature. Tonight, Slaughter Beach, Dog will be performing at Hazel House on a bill presented by The Guild, which also includes Abi Reimold, Meridian, and Pinch Hitter. (Photo by Jessica Flynn)


Clap Your Hands Say Yeah 10th Anniversary Tour w/Teen Men at JB's May 26 & 27

It's hard to believe that it has been a decade since Clap Your Hands Say Yeah dropped their debut self-titled album on the world. The groundbreaking LP sold tens of thousands of copies out of bassist Tyler Sargent's Brooklyn apartment at that time, which was unheard of in the music industry, and helped to alter the scope of what indie/DIY acts could accomplish without a record label. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this generation-defining moment, the group is re-issuing its first release, and will be hitting the road performing the record in its entirety along with other favorites from the band's catalog. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will be kicking the tour off this evening at Johnny Brenda's with Teen Men, who have been asked to support them during their travels across the U.S. and Canada. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $20, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

The Last Internationale plays European arenas with The Who

While we were blogging about a million other NYC artists, a relatively unknown local band we booked at our Best of NYC Fest in 2011 (as an opening act) kept working hard at their music and live show. Fast forward four years, and we find the group signed to Epic, putting out records produced by Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine fame), shooting awesome videos inspired by Western movies (streaming below) and... playing arenas in Europe opening for The Who! We are referring to alt rockers The Last Internationale, a band that deserves huge kudos for their achievement - and also a little apology from The Deli for not seeing it coming. The band released their debut album 'We Will Reign' last year, a powerful record that combines blues rock and Morriconian influences with their politically aware story-telling.


New Daughn Gibson LP Available for Streaming

Daughn Gibson, a.k.a. Josh Martin, just premiered his third album Carnation over at NPR's First Listen. Gibson once again gives us a record that we were not expecting from the rugged-looking baritone, as his past country leanings lay further underneath his latest lacquered sheen of pop. The LP officially drops on June 2 via Sub Pop.


Summer Palace, "Rotator"

We had this curiosity come across our desk recently, and we're slowly being pulled into the meticulous soundscape of "Rotator" by avant-indie group Summer Palace. Delivered to us via our Open Submissions page with about as much fanfare as there is info about this mysterious individual(s?), we're digging it for two reasons: it is 6 tracks of graceful experimentation with looping, harmonies and repetition, and the lack of an online presence suppresses our usual need to know the background of a group and the inevitable judgements we tend to pass in the research process. So we give props to Summer Palace for freeing up our minds to simple enjoy the aural stimlulation, which is currently lighting up the same drool-inducing sypapses as someone dragging their nails over our scalp (seriously, we could fall into a sweet, dreamless sleep to final track "Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.")  We'll leave you with opener "Do I Do All I Can" and let you pass your own judgement. -Terra James-Jura
