Delicious Audio features: Tall Juan's garagey classical guitar

We've seen our fair share of interesting use of guitars and related gear, but, honestly, the idea of a classical six string associated with garage rock never even remotely crossed our mind. Enter Tall Juan from Queens, NY, who begs to differ! Read what he has to say about it in our Delicious Audio post. Tall Juan will open for Beverly's record release show at Baby's All Right on May 5th.

   

The Dove & The Wolf Opening for LOUDS at Boot & Saddle April 29

Delicately beautiful layers of harmony shine through on Parisian transplants The Dove & The Wolf’s sound. There’s a natural ascending strength that gathers as the tender, rolling, folky jangle enhances the tightly entwined vocals lifting into a subconscious sojourn. Tonight, the direction-changing, exuberant Brooks brothers-led LOUDS is also headlining the bill, potentially offering a peak into their upcoming album CHARM UP! Myrrias open the evening as entrancing vocals team with a steady grip of psych/dream-pop instrumentation, drawing you into their depths. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

   

Heliotropes unveil video for 'Easy'

Here's the video for Heliotropes' shockingly mellow (for their standards) new single 'Easy' from their upcoming album 'Over There That Way' (which can be preordered here). The video was shot by Deli NYC contributor Bill Dvorak and Micah Weisberg during Coney Island’s closing weekend in the Fall of 2015.

Simon Doom plays Union Pool on 04.28

Simon Doom is the project of Simon O'Connor, who used to play with Kuroma and Amazing Baby. They present themselves this way: "Simon Doom would consider themselves to be a "Pop-Punk" band if, "Pop-Punk" didn't mean Pop-Punk." There's an easy solution: switch around the two words and call yourselves a "Punk-Pop" band! This however only partially describes their sound because, although melodic and raw, it's also heavily influenced by surf and post punk - which places them in a musical place very close to our gods of indie rock: (early) Pixies. Like the legendary Bostonians, Simon Doom have some really good songs, full of character, intriguing melodies and charismatic vocal performances. Check out our favorite one, entitled "Roseate," streaming below.
