Buzz Alert: The Lemon Twigs sign to 4AD + unveil new single "These Words."

We highlighted Long Island's The Lemon Twigs in our recent Best of NYC 2016 issue, and it looks like the Long Island duo is set for an exciting year. The D'Addario brothers just announced their signing with legendary British label 4AD (now part of the Beggars' Group), and unveiled vaguely Supertramp-esque new single 'These Words' - streaming below. The upcoming full length will be produced by Jonathan Rado, co-founder of Foxygen, who seems to be specializing in producing albums that offer a new take on the sound of the late '60s and early '70s. This is definitely a record we are looking forward to. Check out The Lemon Twig's other recent single (also produced by Rado) "As Long As We're Together."

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Saturday Night Sounds: Backbiter - Fvck the Bozos

Dream punks Backbiter are leaving for an East Coast tour next week and with their tour kickoff show TONIGHT (along with Seattle's Vats, Mr. Wrong and Mini Blinds at the High Water Mark), tonight's Saturday Night Sounds is in celebration of them.

It's hard to choose just one track from Fvck the Bozos, so here's all of them. The six tracks blast right by you quickly, each with a runtime under two minutes, so feel free to play it on repeat to get your fill.

Hopefully we'll see more from Backbiter soon, but until then, good luck on your East Coast tour and with Plan-it-X Fest!

   

Fire Nuns prove they're a fire band

We're not sure what you're sleeping on if you haven't heard of Fire Nuns yet. Their debut album, Dad, Jr., came out back in 2013 and has served as the provenance for what has only so far proven to be an unending stream of successes. Now three studio/house releases and a live recording of their KPSU set deep, the boys are finishing up a slew of performances to record some new material.

It's not exactly definite exactly when or what we'll be seeing from Fire Nuns, but if it's anything like the Ty Segall meets the Orwells styled crop they've droppd so far, it'll definitely be a delight. Their self titled release from March was full of banger cuts that traverse a specturm of distinct punk to a fuzzy blur of addicting garage.

Fire Nuns last played the Woodstock! mini fest at the Convent on the 4th of July and we're not sure when their next show is, but make it a point to see them live. Congrats on being the newest Artists of the Month, boys!

Check out the recording of their live KPSU set below and enjoy your new favorite band.

Who said a beautiful melody is necessary to create a great song? SOFI TUKKER's's gone viral single Drinkee (brand new video below) features a one-note melodic phrase repeated over and over pretty much from the beginning to the end of the song - and we'll never get tired of it! The Brooklyn based duo just unveiled their debut EP 'Soft Animals,' which comprises all their singles to date, plus electro ballad 'Moon Tattoo,' and also announced a bunch of summer dates in Europe and the US - the local date at Baby's All Right on July 30th is already sold out.
