Inkmouth releases new EP "The Problem With"

Inkmouth is a self-described Post Dad-Rock band hailing from NY. While the genre is, of course, a tongue-in-cheek descriptor, it's not too far of a cry from the truth: the band has some heavy roots in early 90's alt that your dad could probably get down with (assuming you are in your twenties). But Inkmouth expresses it in a fresh way that seems to be marked also by the punk/emo music of the early aughts. Their latest EP, The Problem With, is five tracks worth of sometimes dancey, sometime angsty tunes that manage to always feel genuine. Check out "Bad Criminal" off the EP streaming below. - Olivia Sisinni

Gingerlys release self-titled debut album, share first video

Gingerlys' self-titled debut album, out on November 17th, showcases a band delivering on the promise of their earlier work. When we last featured their 7" EP “Jumprope” here on The Deli, we were impressed enough with the group's fast paced indie pop. The new work, however, takes everything a step further in both the songwriting and production departments.  Lead track and first video release “Turtledoves” (streaming below) captures that wistful sense of emotion felt on discovering something new and beautiful.  The pacing is quick, with drums clattering underneath an overall catchy melodiousness created by well orchestrated layers of vocals, guitars and keyboards.  Tasty guitar lines emerge into the mix as the dreamy female vocals pull you into a world where “you were never meant to wander.”  The rising pitch of the vocal melody on key lines “I knew you” and “you choose to” will appeal to big dream pop fans (like us). The full album is available for streaming here. - Dave Cromwell





ZEBEDEE take their berserk garage rock to Pianos on 11/25

ZEBEDEE, the project of Australian transplant Zebedee Row, serves up crunchy, saxed-up garage rock that seems to dangerously flirt with the edge of madness. Their songs are rollicking romps through 70s-era rock 'n' roll, without ever feeling canned or over baked. Check out the band at Pianos 11/25 and stream them below.-Olivia Sisinni

Revival rockers Stone Giant play Communion showcase at Rockwood on 12.05

Brooklyn-based rockers Stone Giant make you question what decade you're in. With their late '60s/early '70s swagger, hippie hair, and Sebastian Hernandez's crunch-tastic vocals, you'd think Led Zeppelin and Soundgarden finally had a baby. They enjoy a healthy following in South America, having toured extensively in Brazil and Argentina, but they remain underappreciated in the New York scene. If you attend one of their live shows, you'll feel their infectious energy and probably also see a few die-hard fans rolling in the mud Woodstock-style. Or maybe that will be just an hallucination caused by the non exactly legal substances floating in the air... The group will be performing at the upcoming Communion residency at Rockwood Music Hall - old style rockers shouldn't miss it! - Meghan Rose

Bong Kitty wows with clean, complex surfy garage rock in 'Worst Party Ever EP'

When it comes to the San Francisco-based garage band Bong Kitty, surf and slacker influences come together to form timely, tight rock. Listening to the Worst Party Ever EP feels like sitting on the beach with all your friends—if your friend group consisted mostly of the cast of Dazed and Confused, that is. It’s surf rock, but with an edge; the guitar parts are dynamic and reverb soaked displays of good, clean, Dick Dale-influenced fun while the vocals are hazy with some clear slacker influences. Stream the EP below and keep an eye out for Bong Kitty’s next live show because they are not ones to miss. - Lilly Milman
