Weekly Feature: Brothertiger - live at The Deli's Electro CMJ Stage on 10.15

Drawing from a more ambient corner of throwback synthpop than many of his contemporaries, Brothertiger's John Jagos may wrap his melodies in layer upon layer of ethereal textures, but they’re unmistakably present. The Ohio University alumni member possesses an ear for a hook combined with a knack of interlacing his electronic instrumentation in a lush but never overpowering manner. See Brothertiger live with In The Valley Below at The Deli's Electro CMJ Show at The Delancey on 10.16. - Link: Dean Van Nguyen's interview with Brothertiger.


Wet announces debut EP + plays CMJ at Bowery and Santos

A few months ago we highlighted electro mellow-core duo Wet, a project that offers a musical recipe reminiscent of the wise, caucasian soul-pop of MS MR, but with an added personal twist consisting in a subtle quirkiness and an intriguing sonic spaciousness. The band in the last few weeks has unveiled a few new songs from the debut EP, which will be relased on October 15, during the CMJ Music Marathon. Check out "Dreams," streaming below, and see them live at Bowery Ballroom on 10.15 or at Santos Party House on 10.17.

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


White Prism plays Deli Electro CMJ Stage at The Delancey on 10.15

Having arrived in New York as an aspiring audio engineer, Johanna Cranitch instead made a name for herself in the city’s broad indie-pop scene under the guise Johanna and the Dusty Floor. Since recently repackaging herself as White Prism, the Australian is now investigating a long-standing interest in more electronic-based instrumentation, and has already cut one of the most accomplished releases within the genre to come out of NYC in recent memory with the project’s smooth, soulful self-titled debut EP. - See White Prism live at The Deli's CMJ Electro Stage at The Delancey on 10.15. - Dean Van Nguyen


The Deli's CMJ Music Marathon Runner #1: Jack

Hey everyone, I'm Jack. I'm a liberal arts undergrad living in the Bronx right now. Like the cliche, I listen to just about every genre depending on what mood I am, if I'm alone or with friends, if I'm under the influence, etc. Since I am a college student, I'd say the genre that I listen to the most is, for a lack of a better term, "college rock," stuff like Pavement, Dinosaur Jr., or newer stuff like Mac DeMarco. But as I said before, I'm always up for hearing new/different music.

Please submit your band for CMJ coverage consideration through the comment section below, looking forward to listening to your music!

I'll be accepting submission for the following genres only:

Indie Pop
Punk Rock
Psych Rock
Hip Hop + Funk + Other

The Deli's CMJ Music Marathon Runner #2: Kayla

I’m Kayla Hay and I’m a Creative Writing student pursuing music journalism. My passion for music is something I take very seriously, I have my own music review blog dedicated to bringing my readers insight to the music I listen to, as well as reviews on more popular artists on the charts. I started working for the Los Angeles edition of The Deli back in March and made some headway with the NYC branch, by getting my press pass for the CMJ Music Marathon. Though my love for music is infinitely deep, I do have favorites, like: The Middle East, Mumford & Sons, Bastille, St. Lucia and Of Monsters and Men.
