Deli CD of the Month: Hooray for Earth - Pianos Residency in November

Hooray for Earth crafts a sonic galaxy of varied synthpop tunes with a rock ‘n’ roll flair on its latest EP Momo. The six celestial songs on the EP demonstrate that the band has come light-years from its Boston origins. On Momo, the band reduced the weighty, noisy drone that was pervasive on its self-titled album and Cellphone EP to welcome a lighter, mellower fare that elevates listeners to a higher plane. The euphoric “Surround By Your Friends” sets the tone of the EP with its expansive, sprightly synths and transcendent vocals that greets listeners with open arms. Although the EP is more pop-oriented than its predecessors, on “Comfortable, Comparable,” the band doesn’t pass up on the opportunity to shred and the quick turn in style works in its favor. The quartet really excels in assembling builds to fantastic, epic releases that feels like you’re racing through space, and at the end of the song, you’ve finally arrived at your destination: Earth. - Don't miss the band at one of their residency shows at Pianos on November 10, 17 and 24. - Nancy Chow

Robbers on High Street announce album, play Rock Shop on 11.13

After entering the studio in October 2009 to begin work on their third full-length album, Brooklyn's Robbers on High Street are finally getting ready to release "Hey There Golden Hair." While the veterans of the band, Morgan King (bass, vocals), Steven Mercado (guitar, vocals) and frontman Ben Trokan still remain, they have been playing as a five-piece for the last three years with drummer Mikey Post and keyboardist David Sherman. Produced by Trokan with engineer Matt Shane (Flight of the Conchords, Rosanne Cash), this was the current line-up’s first foray into a proper recording session, drawing little help from the outside save that of a horn section borrowed from the Daptone House of Soul. You can catch Robbers on High Street playing their newest songs at The Rock Shop on Nov. 13 and at Bowery Electric on Nov. 23.
