New Waxahatchee Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

While Katie Crutchfield gets ready for her reunion tour with sis Allison and the rest of P.S. Eliot, we also now have a collection of her earlier works under her moniker Waxahatchee, aptly titled Early Recordings. “At first I was tentative about re-listening to these recordings, but the nostalgia I felt when re-hearing them was warm, and I thought it might be nice to make them available again,” said Crutchfield. The album is now available via Merge Records, and you can stream it below.


Hard rock punks The Amputees play at The Gateway on 07.02

Since 2011 the seven piece Brooklyn/Manhattan based band The Amputees has been blending together punk and hard rock revival in rather uncompropmising ways. In February they released The Hitchhikers Guide to The Amputees, a four track EP that rarely lets up. “Al Hammer” (streaming below) kicks things off with a fierce punk energy and roaring guitars, while Louis Ramos’ anthemic vocals excercise the demonic art of sounding evil. Third track “Ego” features stomping beat and fiery vocals with a more melodic approach, in particular during the chorus. The band will be playing The Gateway on July 2nd in support of Earworms. - John Honan


Buzz Alert! Pingrove kicks off US tour in Montclair on 06.24

Pinegrove, who recently moved from Brooklyn to Montclair, NJ, is one of those rare bands that make things happen by perseverance and self development, which - in today's music industry - requires monstrous levels of discipline and faith. The group has been releasing a bunch of records since their 2010 'Mixtape One' debut. Their latest, entitled 'Cardinal,' is one of their best. The eight track mini-album blends element of American traditional music and indie rock (think Modest Mouse at their peak, but with more nostalgic and rootsy tendencies). Although electric guitars are still dominant, banjo and pedal steel sneakily insert themselves in some of the tracks (like streaming single 'Old Friends'), adding texture and evoking the rustic warmth of Americana. The band is about to experience a summer on the road, with over thirty dates booked touring with Sports (Ohio), Half Waif (NYC) and Ratboys (Chicago). Their kick off party was canceled because of Palisades' (hopefully temporary) closing, but the band decided to do something anyway at 73 See Gallery in Montclair - here's the Facebook Event page. They'll be back at Market Hotel on August 6.

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

Jazze Belle brings edgy, electronic R&B to Harlem Arts Festival on 6/25

As evidenced by their collaboration with The Songwriter's Orchestra to re-arrange their single "Jagged Edge," nu-soul duo Jazze Belle have already made some noise (and interesting connections!) in the NYC scene. Their sound can be described as mellow, darkly introspective soul. Producer Jett Carter employs simple percussions alongside minimal synth parts to create a wide, moon-lit soundscape for vocalist Taylor Simone to wander through. Her soulful, confident voice touches on themes pertaining to love, but mostly from the side of how self-doubt or other complexities of life can get in the way. Special mention is also due to Carter clevelry repurposing and altering Simone's voice to build vocal harmonies, creating transfixing moments that emphasize certain lyrics. With two singles and a slew of covers comprising their live shows to date, it will be interesting to see how these two evolve in future projects. You can see them live at the Harmlem Arts Festival on 6/25. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
