The Dead Milkmen Release New Album The King In Yellow!

The Dead Milkmen just released their long-awaited new album The King In Yellow today! The band began working on new material soon after performing at 2008’s FunFunFun Festival in Austin, TX. The basic tracks were recorded over two weekend sessions in November at South Street Soundz and December at Miner Street Studios in 2010. They also returned to Miner Street in February 2011 to mix the album with Brian McTear as well as put some final touches on the record for mastering and release. You can download The King In Yellow here. Enjoy! - The Deli Staff

Uh Huh Her, free music, new EP, and tour dates

If you were ever a fan of The L word, you may remember seeing Leisha Hailey as the character Alice. We'll shes back, Leisha that is, as one half of the electro-dance-pop-amazing duo Uh Huh Her along with fellow stellar musician Camila Grey.

Working on their forthcoming full length Nocturnes, the dreamy "Same High" was included on the soundtrack of the Oscar nominated movie, The Kids are Alright. And after hearing "Same High" flavored with 80's dance and synth pop, it was no surprise to me that the duo enlisted Wendy Melvoin (Prince & the Revolution) for co-production duties. These ladies released The Black and Blue EP earlier this week to whet their fan's appetites, in case you couldn't wait for the full length. The band has made the title track "Black and Blue" a free download over on SoundCloud while "Never the Same" can be scored for free too via Nylon Magazine.

If scoring 1/3 of the EP makes you want to grab it, you have two options: the digital download through the band's store or the physical copy that you can only get your paws on by seeing the band live on tour. Uh Huh Her will be playing 4/01 @ The El Ray in LA and 4/02 @ Velvet Jones in Santa Barbara.

Best of NYC #102: Melati Malay, live at Judson Memorial Church on March 20

I don't think singer songwriter Melati Melay was being entirely serious when she posted "ghettotech" as her genre on Myspace. In fact, of the three genres listed, only "tropical" seems somewhat descriptive of her music and... life. Malay, originally from Indonesia, lived in Australia, Singapore and a whole bunch of other places before finally settling in New York, and the international influence resonates throughout her tracks. The songs we hear on her myspace profile are quite clearly split in two: rather traditional, intimate but tense ballads with bluesy overtones on one side, and more orchestrated, lush and sophisticated tracks like "Big Potential" on the other - we guess this is a new direction in her sound, which we like a lot. All her music though conveys this overwhelming feeling of an intensely sunny day with a breeze...albeit a breeze with a bite. Windbreaker weather. - allison levin
