Out In The Streets Festival comes to Ridgewood, Queens on 7/16 and 7/17

Whoever said Queens isn’t cool (hey! it's the new Brooklyn!) surely must not have heard of the Out In The Streets Festival coming to the Onderdonk House in Ridgewood for its fourth year on July 16-17.  Filled with some of our favorite local artists, such as The So So Glos and Frankie Rose, the festival is primarily a rock'n'roll fest. Bands will be playing with a backdrop of art, food and the Ridgewood market.  We’ve prepared a playlist to give a taste of the artists playing this weekend, but be sure to head over to the Out In The Streets festival to hear them for yourself. - Madeleine Grossman

TEEN announces June tour in support of Wye Oak

TEEN's 2016 album, entitled Love Yes, can be described as a playful aural kaleidoscope that follows in the footsteps of imaginative, brainy, NYC based pop bands like The Talking Heads and They Might Be Giants. Check out the playful video for single 'Free Time' below. The four ladies just announced a June tour in support of (awesome) DC avant-pop duo Wye Oak - locals will want to mark June 21st on their calendar, the day the two bands will perform at Brooklyn's Warsaw.

With all those crazy sounds going on in TEEN's music, we couldn't refrain from asking band founder and main singer, guitarist and songwriter a question about her guitar pedals - check out what she answered on our littlle Delicious Audio feature.


TEEN, Chaos Chaos, Von Sell and Gold Child play Audiofemme Anniversay bash tonight (04.19)

A NYC based music blog that fosters music journalism by female music writers, Audiofemme tonight is hosting an anniversary bash at Greenpoint's Good Room with lots of talented, mostly female fronted artists. We blogged about psych pop quartet TEEN and indie pop sister duo Chaos Chaos more than once in this blog - check out those links to refresh your ears. Gold Child (pictured) will also perform on the bill; the trio offers tasteful and relaxed Americana with dreamy overtones and is led by the confident alto of Emily Fehler. On the bill also Von Sell, the solo project of David Von Sell, who released two Hypem-blessed singles that successfully blend experimental textures and soul-pop melodies with jazzy tinges. Check out his latest single 'I Insist' streaming below, and last year's debut 'Ivan,' here - we added the latter to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists. On the bill also indie rock quartet Marigolds, who evoke Robyn Hitchcock's legendary early band, the Soft Boys.

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