New Video: "Dead Or Alive" - Soulpete ft. Hezekiah and DJ Ace

Here is a new, trippy video for Soulpete’s first single “Dead or Alive” ft. Hezekiah and Dj Ace, off of his newest album, Soul Raw, out May 30th.  The mostly black and white video follows Hezekiah spitting while wandering around the Czech Republic.  Check it out below.  


Fast Astronaut "Invisible Sun" EP

Fast Astronaut lost a point with me for not being efficient enough to name their band Fastronaut, but really, that’s my own bias against the space bar (or spacebar?) They earned it back with the track “Balance,” which gets better and dancier with each minute, and won me over completely after I listened to their entire “Invisible Sun” EP. Released March 1st, it’s a very well-produced bundle of synth-pop that, while mainstream-friendly, throws in some interesting turns that prevents me from immediately dismissing it as Top-40 flotsam. The EP has a hopeful heart that I can appreciate. Check out “Balance” for yourself below, and pick it up from their Bandcamp if you like what you hear. –Terra James-Jura

Wilsen unveils new track "Magnolia" from upcoming EP

Featured on the cover of our Fall 2013 issue (and Deli NYC Record of the Month some time before that), NYC's Wilsen excels at the art of mesmerizing through sound. The new single "Magnolia" - the title-track of an upcoming EP scheduled for a May release - is no exception. Check it out below, and read the cover story from last year's issue here.


Amanda X Signs to Summer Bummer Records

Before embarking on a Midwest/Canadian tour post-punk trio Amanda X will perform twice this week with shows tomorrow at Kung Fu Necktie and Sunday at Golden Tea House. The group recently signed to LA-based label Summer Bummer Records, while suggesting that a new release could be out late this summer. 


New Track: "Move That Dope" (Freestyle) - Young Savage

Young Savage’s latest effort “Move That Dope” (Freestyle ) balances a thick trudging pace-setting beat with torrential turns of phrase that may need a few laps before catching ideal speed.


From the NYC submissions: Easy Lover unveils video for "Bleary Eyed"

Easy Lover, the project of multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Wimmer and singer Kali Holloway, is another very interesting dream-soul act to come out of NYC. The duo makes a lot from a little, keeping their sound deceivingly minimal, but epic at the same time (like if Beach House had come out with a workout tape in the 1980s). The arrangements are mostly electronic but feature droney guitar elements linking back to early TV On The Radio, with plenty of space for Kali's soulful voice to take over.

Sophisticated, mysterious, spacious... their latest EP 'The Night We Breathe' is all these things. Check out the truly intriguing video for "Bleary Eyed" below and listen to their tropicalia-laced, synth jam 'The Sweet' here. You can also see them when they play at 15 Anthony St. in Brooklyn with Silent Drape Runners on Saturday, April 20th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!


New Track: "Real" - Elegant Animals

With the release of their debut LP Carnivora (due out April 22nd), Elegant Animals have issued the album’s first single “Real” which has a sleek R&B vibe blended in with electronic brush strokes.



Which of these local acts should be The Deli Austin's next Artist of the Month?
