Bueno shares new single 'C-C-C-C-Convenient' + plays Baked's Record Release on 8.20

Bueno has been a frequent name in our blog as of late.  It seems like every other week these Staten Island natives are playing a show somewhere, and rightfully so: they're a live band with a lot to offer, including an upcoming debut album (entitled, Guilt) and a tour with Baked.  Bueno started out as an improvisation-based band, but their songs have slowly been making the transition towards a more structured environment; we see this in their very recently released single, "C-C-C-C-Convenient" (streaming) The song is one of nihilism and frustration, a feeling fully embodied by Luke Chiaruttini, whose half talking vocals set the stage for a raucously hard hitting track: "Things are more convenient than it was back then/Sometimes I forget what it was like back then/Things now easier, fun and fair/It's nice to know that no one cares."  Bueno's jammy influences are ones for the books, because they've got it down to a T.    They're playing at The Silent Barn this Wednesday (8/20) - don't miss their set at Baked's record release show this Friday(8/22) because the lineup is one to blow you away: Ovlov, Bueno, Porches, and Baked- Jake Saunders 

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

 

Recommended show tonight (06.11): PORCHES and Frankie Cosmos live at Baby's All Right

Band mates and friends Porches and Frankie Cosmos - whose latest releases were recently The Deli's Record of the Month (here and here) - will be performing live tonight at Baby's All Right in Williamsburg together with Kevin Morby from The Babies. Lots of true and fresh talent here, definitely a show not to miss for those seeking new music.

NYC Record of the Month: Porches' "Slow Dance in the Cosmos"

Porches' lead singer Ronnie Mystery may be pleading for some personal space when he sings "pay no attention while I'm getting spaced out" in 'The Cosmos' (the closing track of the band's recent LP "Slow Dance in the Cosmos") but we couldn't disagree with him more. Having just listened one time through to the new record we are only just beginning to crack the beautifully intricate mythology behind this mysterious and multifaceted album. We are hoping the band will treat us with other similar releases for awhile, or we might never fully appreciate the number of sounds and visions they're working with.

With ragers like 'Skinny Trees' packed next to breathless ballads like 'Franklin the Flirt' and the prom-ready 'Intimate,' this group keeps you guessing even while you find yourself jumping up and down. It's folk whimsy with a rebel's frustration and a yacht rocker's heart. You might listen to the track 'Xanny Bar' and be convinced Ronny wanders into railroad boxcars to entertain hobos on his free time, then come back to 'After Glow' and be convinced he's the second coming of Phil Collins. This record is a huge leap ahead for the band, and we are looking forward to hitching a ride up to New Paltz tonight to see them when they play at Oasis Cafe. If that's too far for you, they have 3 shows scheduled in NYC in the near future (list here on the top right). Listen below to 'Headsgiving.' - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

NYC folk rockers Porches travel to Europe

It’s a good thing that Porches.' name is in plural form, as there are two distinct sides of this New York based band - recorded one and the live experience. On record, lead singer/songwriter, Aaron Maine makes music that flows as organically as water in a stream. With the jangly tone of his Danelectro re-issue paired with his 20-something baritone voice, Maine transcends musical boundaries that many of his contemporaries would never dare cross. Without fear of being labeled unoriginal, Maine’s approach is simple: pairing relatable, crushing lyrics about cigarettes and sweaty summer nights with some of the most satisfying minor to major chord changes in the “indie” scene to date. On more recent recordings and on tour, Maine is joined by members of the seemingly-everevolving outfit of Porches, including singer/bass player Greta Kline. When Kline and Maine harmonize, they make us yearn for a youth we never had. Porches songs are not all sweet and tame as they might appear on record. The energy expelled at a single Porches show is enough to power a small town or hamlet for at least a week. After playing Shea Stadium last week the band will travel to Europe for a few dates. - Sam Kogon (photo by Heather Craig)
