A Deli Premiere: Sundaes' new single "Alright"

With their new release "Alright," Sundaes lives up to the title of Nashville Artist of the Month. The detached vocals and simple, yet refined lyrics ("My shadow walks with me, he keeps me company / he's alright, too") bear a striking similarity to early work by Lou Reed on albums like VU, although accompanied by a more modern instrumentation (and proper drums!). "Alright" is the final track to be released from the self-titled EP, which is set to come out on Wednesday, June 21st on Bandcamp- Lilly Milman

 

Keep an eye out for their upcoming EP and listen to “Alright” streaming below. 

 





Pecas bring mellow psychedelia to Mercury Lounge on 06.30

Brooklyn indie rock quartet Pecas will be playing Mercury Lounge on June 30th in support of Modern Diet. On their 2014 release, Dwelling, songwriter Sandy Davis paints pictures of the quiet despair and contemplation that occurs in the midst of a relationship's slow decline. Reverb-drenched vocals, warbling keys and tremolo-laced electric guitars lend a fittingly melancholy ambiance. Listen to "Keeper" below! - Ethan Ames





The Bad Signs expertly navigate a dream world in "Blue Love"

Watching the official video for “Blue Love” by the Nashville-based The Bad Signs is like stepping into a dream world. The bellowing, echoing harmonies are a nod to the powerhouse duo Beach House, while the lyricism and subtle twang of the lead vocals carve out a space for the track in the Nashville scene. The monochromatic video is surreally minimalistic, matching the aesthetic of the track perfectly. Watch the video for “Blue Love” streaming below. -Lilly Milman

 





Snail Mail tours, plays Union Transfer 07.14 with Waxahatchee and Cayetana

Baltimore indie-rock act Snail Mail is playing Union Transfer on July 14th with DIY favorites Waxahatchee and Cayetana. On Snail Mail's most recent EP, Habit, fuzzed-out and reverb-drenched guitars lay the groundwork for Lindsey Jordan's resonant vocals, which often seem to drift out of painful, nebulous daydreams: "I wanna spend the entire year/Just face down/And on my own time/I wanna waste mine." The show will kick off the band first US tour of the year, followed by a second leg in October. Check out the video for "Thinning" below.  - Ethan Ames





A Deli premiere: Pregnant's video for "Jar of Clay" - see them live at Elbo Room 06.25

Pregnant is the electro/indie-pop brainchild of bizarre Bay Area composer Daniel Trudeau. We are premiering here the official video for "Jar of Clay" from the upcoming album, Duct Tape. The video is a psychedelic collage of kaleidoscopic visuals and lush natural imagery that compliments the unpredictable, Animal Collective-esque composition. Pregnant will bring his quirky and imaginative sound to Elbo Room on June 25th, do not miss it, and watch the video for "Jar of Clay" below! - Ethan Ames
