Mood Music: VOG - 'Maximum Eyeroll'

There are very few things left after this horrid year that don't cause the most maximum of eyerolls to occur on our faces. One of those things happens to be the quite fiery quartet VOG and their debut demo tape Maximum Eyeroll.

All three songs on VOG's Maximum Eyeroll are done with incredible wit and a punky snark that challenges you not to chuckle a little bit. Their track "Condos" is sarcastically appropriate for obvious reasons and "D.M.Hex" is brilliance packaged in harsh barks.

You can catch VOG playing all these tracks and more TONIGHT at the High Water Mark for their Ghost Ship benefit show with Cockeye and Piss Test. If you can't make it out tonight, dig into Maximum Eyeroll below.

Weekend Warrior, December 23 - 25

The hypnotic, slithering, synth-laced electro-pop of Shari Vari, a.k.a. Void Vision, cerebrally slices. Tonight, that ruminating, adrenaline-activating, cold-wave creeps into Kung Fu Necktie. While the haunting suspense sends shivers up one’s spine, the warm ripple of rhythm radiates internal warmth. This evening’s bill, which also features the pulsating EDM beats of Dan Shields, a.k.a. Speaking Parts, as well as a DJ set from the heart-pounding hyper kinetic Deflector, serves as a benefit for the victims of art collective Oakland warehouse space Ghost Ship fire that killed 36 people. Embrace the twisted grooves, while giving back. Kung Fu Necktie 1250 N. Front St., 10:30pm, $7, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "May 7th" (Feat. Moor Mother) - NAH

The new video for NAH's "May 7th" pulses with a horror-movie urgency, as the track's eerie soundscape is effectively complemented by the gritty black & white backdrop. Directed by Gabe Coffey and NAH, the single features fellow rising experimental Philly artist Moor Mother, and can be found on his rad new LP Michael. The prolific sound sculptor has also wrapped up this 2016 with three more releases in Untitled Works 2016, Enduring, and Garbage Crap so you have plenty to dig into this holiday weekend!

Band new and promising: Magana plays FIKA on 01.06

Ever wish all songwriters were actually songRIDERS - i.e. they focused on taking us for a ride, rather than just... writing songs? This neologism works well for Brooklyn's Magana, the indie pop/alt folk project of Jeni Magana, who released her haunting and slightly eccentric debut, four track EP 'Golden Tongue' this past October 2016. In it, Jeni takes us on rides of the mental variety, and since we are brainy New Yorkers, we are feeling right at home. Two songs stand out to our ears: ballad "The World doesn't Know," with its elegant melodies, trembling guitar and sophisticated chord progression, is dream folk perfection; its lyrics, through Magana's heartfelt vocals, find the ideal form of control a lover can have over the loved one: an imaginary one. "Get it right," as moody and only slightly faster, also deals with thought process and relationships, focusing instead on how the right words, but only the right ones, can change minds. (Incidentally, that's a lesson we all need to learn if we want to win the next elections). We stream both tracks below. Magana will be performing live at Manhattan's FIKA on January 6th.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
