Semi Precious Weapon release new CD in June + keep touring

Semi Precious Weapons (featured on the cover of the 16th issue of the Deli back in 2008) have been circling the globe on Lady Gaga’s “Monster Ball Tour” and ,in between, headlining their very own mini-tour. While this busy band might seem to have no chance to breathe, let alone record an album, the stunning four will release “You Love You” this June in time for more summer stints with Gaga. A blend of balladic and boisterous banter, SPW's newest album bristles with their penchant for “filthy glamour” and outrageous magnetism. Sexually charged “I Could Die” bursts with shouts and driving riffs, “Put a Diamond in It" stomps, and a wild “Sticky with Champagne” bubbles with innuendo. A change of pace with canon-style “Leave Your Pretty to Me,” dramatic “Statues of Ourselves,” and romantic yet narcissistic “Look at Me” reveal the gentler side of these beautiful Brooklynites. Re-released revisions of the band’s anthems, “Semi Precious Weapons,” “Rock ‘n Roll Never Looked So Beautiful” and “Magnetic Baby” stand as staples in the band’s growing “Precious Empire.” –Meijin Bruttomesso

The Fakeout, the Tease and the Breather

The latest album from the thoughtful bunch known as Canasta is beautiful and complex and filled with subtle goodness. The sound is a blend of ‘70’s AM pop and sea shanties (i.e. The Decemberists). A good example of this would be “Becoming You”. The song talks about not fitting in and really not waiting to, and despite the slight references to The Decemberists this sums up the Canasta sound. They really do pave through own path and the results are remarkable. The Fakeout, the Tease and the Breather is the album the band was always meant to make and they have made it look effortless. My favorite track on the album is “Magazine (Songwriter on a Train)”. It reminds me slightly on Mountain Goats territory and is a fast paced stomp.

The album will be released on May 18th but Canasta is celebrating the release on May 8th at Schubas. They will be performing two show that night, one with Gregory & The Hawk and on with Brighton MA.

Darwin Deez enters Deli NYC Top 20 chart

We stumbled upon this video by Darwin Deez and it became a perfect excuse to mention once again how much we like this guy (we already did in October 2009 when we "proclaimed" his album "Constellations" NYC CD of the Month). The man is currently touring the UK, but he'll be back in NYC on June 22 with a show at Santos Party House - fans may want to look for those tickets now.

Holy Ghost tour with LCD Soundsystem, play Terminal 5

Holy Ghost is a rather new electronic duo that's about to start a world tour with their good friends LCD Soundsystem (this is why they say that PR is an important part of everybody's career!). The guys sound to us like a mix between the chilled atmoshperes of Air and disco influences inspired to the electronic sound of the 80s. Booty shakers may want to see them perform at Terminal 5 with LCD (only 1 date out of the 4 booked is not sold out yet). Their upcoming EP, Static on the Wire, will be released on May 18th on DFA Records.
