From The Deli NYC's submissions: Mr Badger

if any of you miss the computer cowboy days of Grandaddy like I do, Mr. Badger has stepped in with some synth-steeped electro-pop-tastic gems to help you out, turning up the energy dial up in songs like 'Far Hills Cider' while keeping a roots feel for more intimate songs like 'Mother's Day.' His latest self-titled EP has placed the LES-based songwriter, James Bohannon, as New York's answer to Passion Pit's ecstatic, high-energy party jams. Listen to popular track 'Far Hills Cider' below and learn to love sensitive computer cowboys again. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

The Mast unveils video for ‘Nuclear Dragon' from album "Pleasure Island"

We booked The Mast for one of our CMJ shows a few Music Marathons ago (probably in 2011?), and since then, this electro/tribal/dream pop duo kept at it relentlessly, mostly in a DIY fashion, with quality releases and new videos delivered on a regular basis - always a good sign. They just unveiled this simple video for single 'Nuclear Dragon' from their sophomore, new full length "Pleasure Island," that highlights the band's modus operandi, based on interaction between sequencers, effects and percussions, skillfully played and programmed by Matt Kilmer. Haleh Gafori's sensual alto, paradoxically, delivers almost ascetic-sounding melodies, contriguting to a final musical product that's as complex as it is suggestive. The band recently opened for Foster The People at Music Hall of W'burg. Check out another more produced video from The Mast that went viral in 2012 here.


New Video: I Lay Where I Fall (Official Trailer) - Juston Stens

Here's the official trailer for I Lay Where I Fall, which documents former Dr. Dog drummer Juston Sten's time just after he left the band "to travel America on a 1972 Triumph motorcycle with a laptop full of demos to collaborate with musician friends across the country." It features appearances by members of Wilco, Spoon, Generationals, Floating Action, Brass Bed, Apollo Sunshine, and solo artists such as David Vandervelde and Jessica Lea Mayfield. The documentary was directed by Drew Stubbs, and will make its premiere on April 18 at the Nashville Film Festival. There will also be an album of collaborative recordings to accompany the movie entitled Share the Road, scheduled for release in June.


These Polar Opposites Come Together at KFN March 27

Tonight, These Polar Opposites, the brainchild of Lucas Fendlay, make their way to Kung Fu Necktie before embarking on tour. The group performs songs marinated in emotion. Fendlay’s unfiltered vocal delivery provides an air of authenticity that elevates the stirring lyrics, creating an immediate feeling of intimacy that can only be gained through revealing one’s inner workings. The energy emanating from within carries over instrumentally as well, finding a balance between aggressively raw sonic outpourings and periods of somber reflection. Robins, who transform sadness into force via scream, share the bill, as do Brazilians Lisabi, whose clean spacious progressive sound captures a peaceful intensity. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $5, 21+ - Michael Colavita


New Track: "When I Was Losing It" - Roof Doctor

Roof Doctor released a new full-length album yesterday entitled Mobile Freedom Home, which was produce by Kyle Pulley (Thin Lips, ex-Dangerous Ponies) at The Headroom. It's hard to ignore the earnest revealing of emotions from frontman Mark Harper on each of its tracks. Below is our favorite from the LP, "When I Was Losing It." We can relate!
