Mikky Ekko has been taking the slow burn approach when it comes to releasing new music to the masses. Back in July, he premiered "We Must Be Killers" via his Soundcloud account, and now he's taken to YouTube to debut his latest track, "Feels Like the End." The ethereal video suits the celestial vibe of the song and was created by German artist, Robert Seidel. You can download "Feels Like the End" here.

Press play and enjoy your out-of-body experience.


From the NYC Open Blog: Chainwave plays The Rock Shop 9.28

Chainwave (formerly indie rock duo and Deli Magazine artist of the Month The Wicked Tomorrow) has just released a music video for new single “Bloodhounds”. Shot entirely with iPhone camera’s, the video was directed and edited by frontman Ian Jacobs. “Bloodhounds” and it’s accompanying B-side “Both Hands” sees the band (Ian Jacobs - vocals/guitar and Michelle Feliciano - vocals/drums), now a trio with the recent addition of longtime producer Ben Rice on bass, expand upon their brand of dark and melodic rock and roll, infusing it with surfy undertones and psychedelia. The new material has garnered early comparisons to Primal Scream, Deerhunter and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. Chainwave plays The Rock Shop on Friday 9.28, as well as Cameo Gallery in Williamsburg on 10.4 (with Jangula). Check out the new video below. (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here). The Deli NYC Open Blog is powered by The Music Building. 


Delicious Audio: Conveyor and the Recording Process

Conveyor is one of the most intriguing emerging Brooklyn bands - pulling off their intricate sound on record obviously requires a good knowledge of the music production process. We asked them a few questions about their latest record and their favorite pieces of audio equipment here


The Deli Philly’s Final Tuesday Tune-Out w/Vintage Kicks, Cousin Brian & More at PhilaMOCA Sept. 25!

It’s my final Tuesday Tune-Out at PhilaMOCA, and I’m not lying when I say that I’m surely going to get banged up tonight so come join me! We have great rockin’ lineup with up-and-coming local acts Vintage Kicks and Cousin Brian (and I’m hoping that they’re ready to party down with me). I also chose to screen one of my favorite documentaries, Don Letts’ Punk: Attitude. The film along with getting a chance to share local acts that I dig are the main reasons why I wanted to do a music and movie-themed event like Tuesday Tune-Out. I’ve had a great time getting to know the artists, attendees, and nice, dedicated folks at PhilaMOCA. I hope that they’ve had a good time too. Just a heads up to our readers that we’ll be back at the multipurpose space on Friday, October 26 for The Deli Philly’s Halloweeniversary Partay! Yes, we had such a great time last year at PhilaMOCA throwing our Halloween Partay, and since our anniversary falls in the same month, we decided to combine them and throw a serious rager. We’ll have more deets for you soon, but we already have some great acts confirmed that we are really looking forward to sharing with you. Until then, we hope that you can join us for our last hurrah this month, and make sure to bring some cab money because we don’t want anyone to be able to walk or drive home this evening. Cheers! PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St., 8pm, $5, All Ages - Q.D. Tran


Free Download: “SVNTN” - Cold Graves

Check out the latest single from Cold Graves, the collaboration from Cold Fronts and Grave Goods, called “SVNTN”! It’s a sweet little ditty that makes us long for our youth again. You can also download it for free below.


ONO "Albino"

Art-Noise Rockers ONO are back and releasing their first recordings since 1986. The band has been performing their wild, energetic sets around the city with regularity, but it is great to see them capturing a even a fraction of their catalog in the studio. The track that is available from the release is called "Veil" and is a collision of jagged guitars, rhythmic pounding, noise, and haunting vocals from the amazing Travis.

Albino will be released on October 31st through Chicago's Moniker Records and there is not a better day for this album to drop.


Cultfever plays Mercury on 09.28 + Deli CMJ Electronic Stage on 10.18

To experience the next wave of Brooklyn music full blast and to grasp its weird complexities, one can’t do much better than Cultfever’s first single, “Knewyouwell.” The swelling of electronic chaos, motorik rhythm and shoegaze-y backing vocals wrap Tamara Jafar’s lusty soul leads in a kind of gothic disco whole that is greater than the sum of its many influences. Their self-titled debut album (released November 2011) sticks pretty close to this formula throughout; only towards the end do Cultfever break out of the club-like feel with the closers “Boys, Girls” and “Collector,” each boasting a more aspirational tone, replete with big choruses and fist-pumping declarations like “Hey darlin’, sticks and stones would make our homes if we were anyone, anyone else!” - See Cultfever at Mercury Lounge on Friday September 28 with Emanuel & the FEar, and at The Deli's CMJ Electronic Stage at The Delancey on 10.18 with Dynasty Electric, Lushlife, Maus Haus, Anomie Belle, Railbird and a few more. - Brian Chidester
