Color Tongue unveil video for 'Sprout," play the Knit on 10.10

The Deli NYC is delighted to premiere this deliciously lo-fi and bizarrely sci-fi video of 'Sprout,' a recent single by our current Artist of the Month Color Tongue. The colorful, heavily tactile sequence of images perfectly matches the song's organic sound, based on a vivid amalgamation of Devo-esque synths, crunchy guitars, and vocals that straddle the line between '60s pop and avant-psych a la' Animal Collective. This is music in which fun, imagination and catchiness go hand in hand (in hand) - what else can you ask for? Oh right... a great live show! You'll have that on October 10th at The Knit!





Needle Points Record Release Show at JB's Sept. 18

Celebrating the release of their latest effort, Feel Young (which officially comes out September 23), at Johnny Brenda's tonight, Needle Points fuses modern grit with nostalgic production, which was helmed this time around by Scott McMicken (Dr. Dog). Reminiscent of a drive down some forgotten, dusty road and suddenly discovering something new and rejuvenated in rock 'n' roll, the group has a sound that you'll gladly want to crank up while rolling the windows down. Step back in time this evening, where you'll also be joined by LA's Mystic Braves and The Dream Ride. Needle Points is heading out in October/November for a nearly month-long tour with mewithoutYou, Into It. Over It., and Yoni Wolf, so make sure to cop an album when the traveling circus rolls into your town and support the band's imprint NeedLove Records. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Keith Kelley





Sing, Bird of Prey LP Release Show at The Barbary Sept. 17

Philly indie rockers Sing, Bird of Prey have released their debut full-length Crystal Embryo digitally earlier this week. Produced by Kyle Pulley at The Headroom Philadelphia with additional engineering by Shane Woods, elements of psychedelia can be found woven throughout the album’s eleven tracks. “Wild Type” initially feels like a piano ballad before ultimately evolving into a full band opus, while “Microsatellite” follows adding rough, buzzy guitars and live-room drumming to the raw emotional vocals. The song structure and vocal processing evokes John Lennon’s later period Beatles work (White Album and beyond). You can catch Sing, Bird of Prey live tonight at The Barbary, along with Minka and Albondigas. The Barbary, 951 Frankford Ave., 7pm, $5-$7, 21+ - Dave Cromwell

Uni Ika Ai unveils video for 'Soft in Ice'

We called Brooklyn's Uni Ika Ai (pronounced: oo-knee ee-kuh eye) "dream pop' in July, but their new single 'Soft in Ice,' whose video we are streaming below, paints a more complex picture, one of a band not afraid to experiment with not so popular BPMs (the plodding "mid tempo") and harmonic content (dissonance, noise, and an initial melody that's not exactly a ray of sunshine), but still able to resolve these dark tensions through a chorus that delivers a big "prog-chestral" melodic opening, leading to a dissonant distorted sax solo that David Bowie would have loved to hear. The black and white (but mostly black) visuals beautifully underline the existential content of the lyrics. This would definitely be a candidate to be our video of the month if we only had such a thing!
