Doubting Thomas Cruise Control announces split EP with Slushies + plays Palisades tomorrow (10.31)

Slacking (real or perceived) is such an essential part of the average rock'n'roll musician's personality it's hard to believe that the term "Slacker Rock" was coined just in the 90s, after Pavement's debut album "Slanted & Enchanted." Brooklyn band Doubting Thomas Cruise Control quite... undoubtedly looks back at that sound with fondness (we do too), re-appropriating and re-invigorating it for a new generation that at the time was too young to appreciate it, and for an older one that's feeling nostalgic. The band is about to release a split EP with like minded NYC band Slushies, you'll have a chance to see them live at Palisades on 10.31 during the venue's Halloween bash.

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

NYC Record of the Month: Buscabulla - "Kitsuné"

Music bloggers (including our own) love to denigrate the CMJ Music Marathon, but there is no other event in NYC (and probably the world, since SXSW has become a mainstream feast) that allows music industry and fans to focus their attention on emerging artists. To find and promote new talent, here at The Deli we book a ton of bands for our official CMJ shows and do our own Marathon coverage (which admittedly this year was leaning a little too much in an indie/DIY direction - but hey, our roots blogger let us down a week before CMJ!). But we are also aware that we can't be everywhere to find the best new artists, and this is why we indulge in "Best of CMJ" lists like this one. A big "Thank You" is therefore due to HeyReverb.com for introducing us to Puerto Rican/Brooklyn band Buscabulla (Spanish slang for 'troublemaker'), whose electro/industrial/world/dream/pop debut EP "Kitsuné" is one of the most beautiful and intriguing records to catch our ears in quite some time.
Opening track "Caer" (video streaming) alternates gritty guitar loops with liquid synths, while singer Raquel Berrios' voice charms and soothes with minimal pop melodies sung in Spanish, but that seem to bear some kind of Japanese influence. Metelé is a more traditional electronic, atmospheric ballad reminiscent of Air but still dominated by an Eastern sounding melody, while "Temporal" - the most experimental track in the EP - blends the clanging of a mechanical loop with what sounds like a synchopated, finger piano sample, while distorted guitars swells drive the song through its tension and release cycles. Final track "Sono" - one of the strongest on the record - recycles an idyllic, 60s sounding flute sample and surrounds it with a funky drum pattern and all sorts of distorted and percussive sounds - all very organic sounding - while Raquel indulges in a simple melody that seems inspired by nursery rhymes.
Buscabulla's "Kitsuné," with its incredible array of ethnic influences filtered through a Western musical lens, represents as close as it gets how today's NYC music should sound.

New Track: "Young Planes" - Church Girls

Fledgling indie/folk rock outfit Church Girls takes a turn in an edgier direction in the vein of Courtney Barnett on the band's new track "Young Planes," which we highly encourage the group to push further. Led by Mariel Beaumont and Evan Anders, the five-piece tackle the growing pains that most of us eventually end up going through with age, while Beaumont's speak-singing verses play the standout roll in the song. They'll be performing next in Philly on Monday, November 3 at The Arts Bank Cabaret.

Jake's Day 5: Journalism, Parlor Walls, Pile, Ovlov, Ratking, Show Me The Body, Grass Is Green, Kal Marks, Gnarwhal

My last day of CMJ was my most anticipated.  Started off by getting my ticket in advance for Exploding in Sound's 3rd birthday bash at The Silent Barn, where almost every EIS band in some form or another would be playing.  After that I headed over to the warehouse spot over on Hart and Wyckoff known as Hot 97.4 for the 1.21 Gigawatts issue release (read some of my words in the new issue).  There I caught the tail end of Journalism, a tight band of Brooklyn cats who sound like a cross between My Bloody Valentine and Ty Segal, a good combo in my book. - Keep reading Jake Saunders' report of Day 5 of the CMJ Music Marathon 2014.

 


New DRGN KING LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

DRGN KING has released Baltimore Crush the follow-up to their 2013 debut Paragraph Nights, via Bar None Records. Its sound much-like the lineup of the Dominic Angelella-fronted group has evolved. Baltimore Crush echoes of its predecessor, while taking steps forward, delivering personal heartfelt emotions and high-voltage instrumentation, blended with danceable, more casual grooves and surf-rock aesthetics. It’s that calm endearing honesty and sensitivity that allows you to lay back and ride the wave or go full-throttle at any moment. You can now stream the LP in its entirety at AllMusic.com.
