New Music Video: "One Shot" - Rockers Galore

For the past five years, Blayer Point-du-jour and the Rockers Galore have journeyed back and forth between Philadelphia and the Dominican Republic to hone and craft their new material in preparation for their sophomore full-length album, Cultivation. In a lot of ways, the new music video for their latest single, “One Shot,” is the perfect montage of the journey that led up to the album. While the footage predominately features the band jamming in one of the many studios that Cultivation was developed in (complete with dancing with members from Peek-A-Boo Revue), it segues to various backdrops of the band members journeying through Philly’s waterfront and tropical destinations. Add it all up, and it plays out to be a joyous prelude to tomorrow night’s album release celebration at MilkBoy.

Buzz Alert! Ageless brings world big beat to Rough Trade and The Knit within a week

If you ever played in a band, you must be familiar with the "two weeks rule" requested by live venues (often extended to a month), and consisting in asking artists to abstain from playing any other shows within 14 days of the one already booked. Well, that's obviously something that doesn't concern NYC's electronic project Ageless, since it's scheduled to perform live at both Rough Trade and The Knit within eight days (04.28 and 05.06, respectively). Considering those rooms aren't exactly small, this fact, alone, earns the one man band a "NYC Buzz Alert." The brainchild of NY native Wes Paioff, Ageless concocts danceable electronic music reminiscent of the UK's big beat of the '90s (think Chemical Brothers and Fatboy Slim) but dressed with hip hop, soul and a million other influences (including, in new album 'Perfect World,' afrobeat and ragamuffin). No wonder he states in his bio: "At some point I started producing music exactly as it's always sounded in my head. Not bound to any specific Genre, but influenced by many genres." If we were you, we'd check out one of those two dates.

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





thelvnguage to bring the funk to Rockwood Music Hall 5/12

If you’ve been on the hunt for “a major funk odyssey,” then thelvnguage just might be your dream band. The NYC-based four-piece combines thick and creamy funk with some serious psych vibes, but wraps it all up in a neat, indie-pop package. Their latest single busts out the jams with major disco guitar chops and the blare of that delicious old-school organ sound, and features singer, Rob van Zandt’s svelte vocals. But our favorite track is the instrumental "Something Ellis Said" from last year's "moothC@" single, streaming below. Catch them live at Rockwood Music Hall 5/12 - Olivia Sisinni

Gritty Birds Celebrates 2 Year Anniversary

Gritty Birds, the local podcast and XRAY.fm radio show, is gearing up to celebrate its two year anniversary with a dance party and performances from some of Portland's best.

Ran by soulful singer, songwriter, producer and music writer Jeni Wren Stottrup, Gritty Birds is nearly 60 episodes deep into its collection personal conversations with artists, on the spot interviews at festivals and new music. Stottrup embodies a DIY approach to showing appreciation for Portland's music scene, always figuring out ways to keep the podcast and radio show relevant and fresh.

For the anniversary dance party and show, Skull Diver and Coco Columbia will be gracing the stage, with a secret headliner to close out the night. Festivities will be hosted by comedienne Kellie Irwin with hopefully a little bit of commentary from Stottrup herself.

Catch the Gritty Birds second anniversary party on Friday, May 12 at Kelly's Olympian. More details will be revealed closer to the show date.
