New Night Sins LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Take a journey - To London or the Lake, the new LP from local dark wavers Night Sins. The project from the mind of Kyle Kimball (formerly of Salvation and now the drummer for Nothing) premiered their album last week over at Noisey, and the record is out now via Avant! Records, which you can take a listen to below. Enjoy or get really depressed, whichever floats your boat!


Lushlife Opening for Blackalicious at WCL Dec. 9

Philly emcee/producer Lushlife, a.k.a. Raj Haldar, released his most ambitious recording to date for Weathervane Music’s Shaking Through series last month called “Toynbee Suite,” which was inspired by the cryptic, ceramic Toynbee tiles that can be found throughout the world for over the past 20 years. The four-movement, hip-hop/orchestral masterpiece runs ten-plus minutes, and features contributions from talented peers/pals rjd2, Dave Hartley (Nightlands, The War on Drugs, etc.), YIKES the ZERO, Ricardo Lagomasino (Many Arms), Joshua Stamper, who worked on the string arrangements, and many more. Tonight, Lush will be warming up the crowd at World Café Live opening for legendary West Coast hip-hop duo Blackalicious, which consists of emcee Gift of Gab and DJ/producer Chief Xcel. I am sure that Haldar will be picking up plenty of new fans with his nimble, old school-style flow. World Café Live, 3025 Walnut St., 8pm, $17 - $28, All Ages (Photo by Phil Bradshaw) - H.M.

New electro-pop from NYC: The Landing

I have a feeling The Landing doesn't quite walk on the Earth the same way the rest of us do. The band that bills themselves as Space-pop, instead orbits the Earth in a cloud of hazy synths and dense harmonic smoke. While their popular track 'Anxieties' wrestles with an unfortunate human need requiring most of us to go to sleep every once in awhile... something tells me this band is not quite as anxiety-ridden as their smooth pop posture would otherwise indicate. Check out one of the group's first singles below, and stay tuned for more releases to follow soon. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

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


Gina Cimmelli premieres video for single "Clementine"

The new video for 'Clementine' from singer-songwriter Gina Cimmelli, taken from her EP 'Summer Singles,' offers a rare glimpse into the private world shared between herself and a traveling musician boyfriend who finds himself transplanted in NYC. It's a touching ode to those quieter moments shared privately between two lovers, from an artist consistently surprising us with her honest lyrics and probing sentiment. Watch the video premiere below. - (Mike Levine @Goldnuggets)


New Levee Drivers EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

While the Levee Driver's new three-song EP Speakin' Bourbon Coated Blues might not truly represent the furious country-blues-garage-rock outfit that they unleashed this past weekend at Kung Fu Necktie for their record release party, it does highlight the vocal prowess of frontman August John Lutz II. His voice is simply custom-fitted for the twang that can be found in the heart of rural America. They'll be performing next this Friday, December 13 at The Ardmore Music Hall.




New Poll Coming Soon!
