Split Single @ Schubas

Split Single released their latest album Fragmented World back in April. The band is fronted by Jason Narducy (Superchuck, Bob Mold Band), and released a very cool "Making Of" video today.

You can catch Split Single at Pritzker Pavilion, Millennium Park on June 23rd with Bob Mould @ 6:30pm and at Schubas on August 1st.


I Fight Dragons

I Fight Dragons have announced that their next full-length album, The Near Future, will be released on Sept. 16th. The album is currently available for preorder, and with that order you will receive a download of the band's new song "No Strings". The physical version comes of the release on 180-gram fluorescent blue/green vinyl, with a 28-page companion graphic novel / art booklet and a 22" fold-out poster.


Blank Paper releases new single 'Whip' + plays Glasslands on 07.02

Blank Paper, a synth-pop quartet we tried but failed to book for the Northside/Best of NYC shows we organized this weekend (the band couldn't play), just released this new supercatchy single entitled 'Whip' (streaming). Employing a wide palette of electronic sounds, Blank Paper blends 80s synthpop elements with quirkier electro ones, all while sleepwalking through lucid lyrics fitting perfectly with last year's debut record sleeve's giant, fold-out unicorns. From that record check out single 'Ambien,' which revels in this state of unconsciousness. See them live at Glasslands on July 02. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


Way to Go Moses Opening for The Cold and Lovely at KFN June 17

The tandem of Bret Buckman and Ethan Cohen, a.k.a. Way to Go Moses, with recent addition Greg Whitney, setup shop this evening at Kung Fu Necktie. Their self-titled debut serves as a calming peaceful injection of folk rock. The vocals wrap around each other in a reinforcing embrace, developing harmonic texture while avoiding the tendency of turning cheesy because the instrumentation provides a perpetual jangly moving aesthetic that plays into the thoughtful lyrical integrity, keeping the sound crisp. The bill will also be supported by local psych-punk/pop trio Seismic Thrust, whose sound is catchy while remaining raw around the edges, and headlined by the LA-based duo Meghan Toohey (The Weepies, Lenka, Schuyler Fisk) and bassist Nicole Fiorentino (Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, Spinnerette), a.k.a. The Cold and Lovely. Kung Fu Necktie 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ - Michael Colavita


NYC Buzz Alert! Mainland plays Mercury tonight + Bowery on June 23

Brooklyn indie rockers Mainland recently released their sophomore EP "Shiner," featuring four diverse songs of driven guitar rock, including noteworthy  single 'Savant' (streaming), an upbeat and semi-epic punk rock gem bearing sonic overtones ranging from spaghetti western soundtracks to the irresistible punk-folk of The Pogues. The band, which is scheduled to play Mercury Lounge tonight opening for Made Violent and Bowery Ballroom on June 23 with The Colorist and Field Mouse, has obviously been catching The Bowery Present's ears, which bodes well for the future, and is enough of an achievement to elevate them to the status of 'NYC buzz band.' They also have a couple of shows at NXNE this coming weekend.

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