Captain Baby unveils video for 'Rainbow Reach'

We've sung the praises of NYC indie rockers Captain Baby quite often here at The Deli - check out this spread feature about them on the recent winter issue of our print magazine, or the various bits of coverage they had on this very blog. This is a band that has forged its own sound, and their new single 'Rainbow Reach,' whose video we are premiering below, is a confirmation of it. The song belongs to a forming collection of new tracks that will constitute the band's follow up to the excellent 2014 debut LP 'Sugar Ox.' 

   

Brooklyn punk staples The So So Glos Stream Upcoming Album 'Kamikaze'

Brooklyn punk band, The So So Glos are currently streaming their upcoming album Kamikaze on the A.V. Club, officially out on May 20th. This is the band’s fifth full length release, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down; their fast paced punk with catchy pop hooks keeps their sound as youthful and fresh as it was on their first record. “It uses spirituality, sarcasm & metaphoric ‘verbal shotgun shells’ as ammunition. It’s also a party drink, so drink up & enjoy.” - says frontman Levi Zaru about the record. The perfectly described “verbal shotgun shells” featured on tracks like “Going Out Swingin’” contribute to make this a super-fun punk record, complete with tongue-in-cheek humor and singalong choruses. Having grown up in Brooklyn, the members of The So So Glos have gone beyond being just a band, becoming involved in fostering the local DIY scene founding two all ages venues that have helped keep the DIY spirit alive in New York City: Shea Stadium and The Market Hotel (before it closed and recently reopened). The band will be kicking off their North American Tour in support of the new record on May 19th with The Dirty Nil and Big Up. Stream the track "Missionary" below!
