Droney Psych-Rockers Telltale play Cameo, August 12

Brooklyn’s Telltale showcases an intriguing mix of experimental no-wave, reverb-soaked post-punk, and dark shoegaze. Featuring Eric Gilstrap, Laurie Ruroden, Stephan Cherkashin, and Lauren Andino, the quartet's ear-splitting washes of guitar feedback, deadpan chants and ominous droning wastelands doesn't so much blanket you as it does envelop you, overpowering you with Sonic Youth caterwauls and JAMC-esque walls of sound. The music churns in a slow burn, awash in effects, but there’s an aggression lurking just beneath the surface that maintains an uneasy atmosphere. There’s also a healthy dose of reverb to help wash down all the gauzy noise... - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).

 

The Barrens play Party Expo on 08.06 + release album in the fall

Like a bolt of lightning ripping through the hazy summer sky, The Barrens are exploding back on to the scene with electrifying new music. Go here for 3 songs from their upcoming new full length. "Felt" is a Sabbath-soaked, guitar-fueled epic, ripping through your ear-drums with sonic precision; "Drop Sea" is a sprawling, groove-based psychedelic swim in beautifully unknown waters, and last but not least the electro-drum driven "Yellow Cigarette" which builds a smooth, thumping groove until it explodes into a summer-punky chant of youthful abandon. The debut album is coming in the Fall. Check them out at live at the DIY haven Party Expo, August 6th at 8pm. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).

Interview: Netherfriends

There are several exciting bands coming into town this weekend for the Pitchfork Music Festival. Bands like Neon Indian, Best Coast, Free Energy, Sleigh Bells, and others are exciting new acts that will be performing at Pitchfork. However, there are a few local bands that will get the opportunity to perform in front of a potentially new crowd. The Smith Westerns, Alla, and Cave (Alla and Cave perform at the same time) will be there, but I was happy to Netherfriends returning home are spending a few months on the road completing the first leg of his ambitious 50 Songs for 50 States. I recently asked Shaun Rosenblatt, the man behind Netherfriends about the tour and his thoughts on performing at Pitchfork.
