NYC band on the rise: Balancer

Talking about immigration controversy... The Deli would like to give the guys in Balancer (the ones in the band hailing from Columbia, since the Puerto Rican should be good) permanent residence in NYC for... making real good music? We are sure even the most raci... ahem... obstructionist Tea Partiers will fall in love with the celestial melodies of their latest record "Tipsoo," or at least with this beautiful single entitled "re-minder." And to those concerned about the fact the NYC scene (or any other place in this land) is getting less and less American, The Deli says: "yo, since when is America, American?!?"

The soothing sounds of Balancer - debut album "Tipsoo" out now

Balancer is a three piece from Boston by way of Columbia and Puerto Rico that has finally settled in our quaint Brooklyn scene (HA... quaint, what a riot!).  Avoiding the grandiose, Balancer in their first album 'Tipsoo' focuses on the subtleties, which they magnify within a textured landscape of mellow ambience. Soothing synths and trance-like song structures provide an incredibly relaxing record, grabbing onto sounds and moods tweaked by bands like Givers or Grizzly Bear. Take a listen to the streaming standout track, “The Age is a Gift,” an effective melding of melting psychedelia and pop song structure. We are seeing pictures of lakes, sunsets over oceans, crystalline ice, and children on see-saws. - Jake Saunders
