Knot releases debut LP on Exploding in Sound on August 28

Brooklyn's Knots raised from the ashes of Boston's Krill, and offer a tense mix of nervy post-punk instrumentation and '90s slacker vocals that perfectly blend two genres that have stood the test of time in the constantly evolving sea of rock'n'roll waves. The single Knot, streaming, is included in their debut, self titled LP out on August 28 on Exploding in Sound. 





Theyrgy "Walk Away"

Post-Punk group Theyrgy have released the first single, "Walk Away", from their debut EP "Exit Strategies" via which will be released via their own Dead Sage label on August 21st. On the surface the song focuses on a fictional, sociopathic cannibalistic killer, but it is designed as commentary on our fascination with true crime and the eerie ability to just walk away.

This is the work of John Doyle (I Decline,13 Flowers), John E. Bomher (Yakuza, Iklatus), Michael Fabiano, and Tony Hooper.

Thanks for Listening!

I never did a proper introduction when assuming role of Managing Editor of The Deli NYC, but, hello — my name is Connor Beckett McInerney, and I've served as editor for the Deli's NYC blog since November of last year. Today is my last day. 

I hope you've enjoyed the music that we've highlighted on this blog since my tenure began in late 2019 — much like my predecessor Paolo De Gregorio I sought to highlight the city's experimental, independent, and often overlooked artists to the best of my ability. 

The Deli was one of the first publications to pay me for my work as a critic when I first arrived in NYC several years ago, and stepping down feels a bit like "the end of an era" in a personal capacity. Nevertheless I am incredibly grateful to Paolo for giving me this tremendous opportunity. If you've enjoyed the music I've spotlighted on this blog, feel free to follow my personal Twitter account (hyperlinked above) and check out my radio show, LOCAL BOPS, which airs every Tuesday night on KPISS.fm

As a final note, I want to say thanks to everyone who submitted music, read the blog, or passed along a word of encouragement. I hope to see you at the gig someday.

Kindest regards,  
Connor

JOBS' experimentation stays controlled on "Opulent Fields," new LP out 8.7

“Opulent Field,” the latest video by NYC experimental quartet JOBS, feels simultaneously complex and minimalistic. Utilizing repetitive instrumental elements (namely guitar and cello), in tandem with a tightly-wound electronic percussive overlay, JOBS’ sound is hypnotic yet never overindulgent, relying upon precise interweaving of acoustic and synthetic parts to craft dreamily distant indie rock. Moreover, the band’s give-and-take approach to performance and the decision to keep their sound grounded makes for an intrepid-yet-quiet listen — stream it below, and keep an ear out for the band’s forthcoming endless birthdays, out August 7th.
