Hero House brings introspective indie pop to Mercury Lounge on 6.29

Hero House is the new indie pop project from singer-songwriter Jamie Bendell. Bendell, also a member of the band Plastic Cannons, released the first single off her upcoming EP 'Pretty Tough' at the end of 2015. Her music marries introspective lyrics and lush, hook-laden vocals with folk and soul influences. This first single also showcases a guitar sound very reminiscent of U2 from 'The Joshua Tree' era. Hero House will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 29th in support of Todd Lewis Kramer. - John Honan


Caveman releases third LP 'Otero War' + talks about pedals on Delicious Audio

Belonging to the rare category of "bands that keep getting better all the time," Brooklyn's dream rock quintet Caveman just released their third full length album (and three years in the making) 'Otero War,' and is set to play several major festivals this summer including Forecastle in Louisville, KY, Panorama in NYC and Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco, CA. With a gear insider like Jimmy Carbonetti in its ranks - besides being the band's guitarist, the man is a fine luthier and owns Cobra Guitars - we were tempted to ask him a few question about guitar pedals - check out the link below. Check out latest single 'Life or Just Living,' streaming below.

Delicious Audio Q&A with Caveman about their guitar pedals.


New Track: "Balloon To The Moon" - The Writhing Squares

Launch into the stratosphere while you listen to “Balloon To The Moon,” off The Writhing Squares forthcoming LP In The Void Above, which will be released on July 29 via Siltbreeze Records. The bass-anchored propulsion swims in a funky, jazz-accented vessel, providing intriguing twists. The saxophone jumps off that backend drive and psych-oriented vocals, emerging through the clouds. Catch the duo with Alto! and Valley Exit next Tuesday, July 5 at Kung Fu Necktie! (Photo by Ben Leaphart)

Arc Iris release new video for “Kaleidoscope” + plays Cafe` Nine on 07.21

The staggeringly beautiful stylings of Providence, RI group Arc Iris have been brought to life in their new video for “Kaleidoscope,” a single off of their upcoming album “Moon Salon.” The three piece ensemble, which includes former Low Anthem member Jocie Adams, uses tantalizing vocals melodies, mysterious cello lines, emotionally-charged drum beats, and lush harmonies to create mesmerizing performances, both acoustically and visually. The new video is no exception - it features a blended interaction of dancers, musicians, and light for a psychedelic display, reminiscent of Joanna Newsom, Fleetwood Mac, and Animal Collective. The video takes you on a fantastic journey through their sound, which is unique, compelling, and enchanting. You can catch Arc Iris’ enchanting aura this July at their C’mon Everybody residency in Brooklyn, starting on July 5, and in New Haven, CT on July 21. - Dan Rome

Sam Evian unveils single 'Sleep Easy' + announces LP 'Premium'

The solo project of (Deli celebratedCelestial Shore’s Sam Owens, Sam Evian showcases the transformation of a quirky, talented songwriter into a more mature, original artist. Latest single “Sleep Easy” (streaming) features a more linear sound, without giving up the songwriter's beloved odd tempo changes, which are almost randomly - but very organically - disseminated throughout the song. Sam's experimental urges, though, don't distract from the song, a mid tempo ballad venturing into dreamy territories not entirely foreign to the sound of Celestial Shore, although folkier and twangier than anything ever released by the Brooklyn band.  Check out the video here. The track is off debut album, 'Premium,' which will be released soon by Saddle Creek Records.
