NYC Artists on the rise: Computer Magic

This band was referred to me by a... I guess we can say "colleague" during CMJ week (I have a big list here of referred local artists, hopefully I'll be able to cover them all one at a time). Computer Magic is the synth-pop brainchild of a young lady called Danz, who is accompanied live by two dudes on guitar and bass and, of course, a drum machine. This one-woman-band's tunes, blessed by interesting dark melodies, are at once atmospheric and playful, and sound a little like an early 80s version of Air. Our favorite song - "Get a Job" - sounds like an electronic, sans-Robert Smith version of The Cure from the "Killing an Arab" period with droney, filtered female vocals. Equally satisfying, "Victory Gin" offers a full on 80s style synth arrangement that threw us back to the good old days when Simple Minds was an awesome emerging electro-rock band (if you feel nostalgic I recommend listening to "Life in a Day").

Rising Lo-Fi NYC Bands: Quilty - Live at Silent Barn on 11.04

Here's some tasty candy for all you mp3 trick-or-treaters: a new Quilty tracks based on Charles Burns' teenage sex-and-horror graphic novel Black Hole. The song featured here is "Lizard Queen." It's a rollicking, libidinous chugger about "the bug," a sexually transmitted disease that causes its victims to develop bizarre physical mutations. Side B, "Chris on the Beach," (you can find it here) is a loose, fuzzy send-off to a murdered lover that ebbs softly over jammy, hazy guitars. It's a little more sentimental than the first, but certainly no less grotesque, sleazy or gory (and we wouldn't have it any other way). Happy Halloween, y'all! - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).
