Making Time Showin’ Some Hometown Love w/The Spooks Oct. 22!

We are already looking forward to the next Making Time on Oct. 22 with Surfer Blood and The Drums, which is certainly rad enough. But besides seriously bringing some of the hottest national/international acts in music to Philly, Making Time will also start hosting some of their favorite local artists in the Ruby Lounge basement of Voyeur. Bravo! It simply just makes sense with all the amazing homegrown and transplanted local artists popping up in our music community (and the lack of opening slots on the more high-profile shows because of tour package deals). The Spooks will be the special guest of this inaugural occasion. Grab your tix early because you know what happened last time! - The Deli Staff

New to the NYC scene: Blair plays CMJ with Beach Fossils

Blair is an interesting singer songwriter that recently moved to Brooklyn from the LA area - although she's originally from the south. Her songs are more than "just" folk songs, there's a dreamy quality to them that recalls the sound of mid 90s female fronted bands like Blake Babies and Belly, but also an often quirky experimental edge (did we ever tell you that we LOVE quirky?) The overall atmosphere of the tunes is rather soft, which suits Blair's warm, expressive voice, but the electronic and percussive arrangements add a playful touch to the tracks that makes them more interesting and enjoyable. This lady is gathering some buzz and this is not the only reason why you should check out her music. She has a bunch of very interesting CMJ shows planned, with Beach Fossils at The Rock Shop on 10.20 and Francis and the Lights at Mercury on 10.22.


Xylos release new video for their single "Not Enough"

You hear people say that since MTV has become a regular TV channel, music videos aren't that important anymore. We respectfully disagree... if properly done, for music blogs like ours, they are a MUCH better way to present music than streaming mp3s. Check out this one by Xylos for the "Not Enough" - a beautiful pop song that may warm up your day.


Suckers premiere video on IFC + tour with Yeasayer

We have been covering Suckers since they were a sparkle on their mothers' eyes - they weren't the fastest growing kid, but it was worth waiting for them... here's their first video, premiered on IFC.com!!! The band is currently on a US/Europe tour with Menomena first and Yeasayer after.
