The Everymen unveil "Spain" video + celebrate release of "Givin' Up On Free Jazz" at Baby's All Right on 05.20

We always welcome ridicolous video concepts here at The Deli, in particular when accompanied by good music. NJ's The Everymen - a band featured on the cover of The Aquarian last year - is back at it with their usual sense of humor and punk rock attitude. The video for new single "Spain," from the upcoming sophomore album "Givin' Up On Free Jazz" (out on May 20th) stars comedian Zach Garner as "professional rail-slider," and band main singer Mike V as his uber-demanding (but sympathetic and wise) coach. The band is a lot of fun live, so you don't want to miss their CD release party at Baby's All Right on May 19, which will be followed by a month and half long tour around the country. Here's another track from the upcoming album available for preview.

P.S. We wonder if this video wants to be a metaphor of the life of musicians... 


The Everymen unveil new single from upcoming LP + play Matchless on 10.03

Upbeat NJ indie-rockers The Everymen, who landed on the cover of the Aquarian a few weeks ago (pictured) and are just coming off of a lively appearance at the memorable Hopscotch Festival, continue to surprise us with a new single featuring a cameo by New Pornographers’ AC Newman, who kills it on the tack's dual vocals.

The rocking new song titled “A Girl Named Lou Pt. 2” takes the form of a celebratory anthem for being rejected by a lover, and sounds like a 5-minute rock and roll jam, but with a more complex structure. The first 0:47 seconds have actually been given their own song title, “Bl’ast Off” as tribute to the infamous hardcore band - it will serve as track one of the 8-member band’s sophomore LP, which is scheduled for the Spring of 2014. The intro track will be followed by “A Girl Named Lou Pt. 2,” streaming below. Check them out on 10/3 at Bar Matchless in Brooklyn. – Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)

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


Weekly Feature: The Everymen release new video + play Sandy benefit at St Vitus 11.16

For 'New Jersey Hardcore', their first full-length album ( which they released early October), The Everymen took a good handful of new steps, from production, an obvious first, to the choices made throughout the record. For a couple of songs, we get to hear Catherine Herrick (the only lady in the band) sing; amidst punk jams, there's also more of the slower, softer side we'd heard on their last EP's closing track 'A Girl Named Lou', with songs like 'Annie' or 'Yellow Sunday Side' [...] This evening (11.16), The Everymen will be playing a benefit alongside The Brooklyn What, The Great American Novel & more at St Vitus in Brooklyn (you can find all the info here). Stream their new video for Coney Island High here & read TM's Q&A with Mike V here.


Tracy's CMJ Day 5 -TinVulva, Bugs In The Dark, Life Size Maps, Eula, The Everymen, EndAnd, SLEEPiES & more

And finally, we get to the last day of this CMJ fest. Far from tired, I'm in a place where, buzzing off the large amounts of live music I've been restlessly taking in for the last four days, I'm just NOT sure what to do with myself once this is over. Converse might be hard, as one: I've gone partially deaf, and two: all I've been doing all week is chat and shake hands, to the point where if I have to say once more 'Tracy from The Deli', I might just die. But before I unplug my brain for the whole of Sunday, time to take you through the final leg of this run. Read Tracy Mamoun's report of CMJ's Day 5 here. - In the picture and streaming: SLEEPiES, who by the way have planned a sweet Halloween bash mit Pixies, Ramones, Siouxsie and The Banshees and Joy Division covers, check it out here


MOVED TO XPO 929!!! Deli CMJ Noisy Stage



Finally, here's our last announcement for this CMJ week - on Saturday, we'll be welcoming some of the city's best noise/punk/post-punk up-and-comers to XPO 929's stage, for an afternoon of high decibels and free booze (specifically, vodka and bourbon on the house all day!!!). Kicking off with alternative punk/riot grrrl trio TinVulva, followed by female fronted Bugs In The Dark and their fierce slow-burning indie rock, this show will be bringing to you Life Size Maps, who over the course of three records, have worked out their own brand of noise pop eccentricities and EULA (all in caps, please), another lady-led trio that's been attracting a fair deal of attention over the last couple of years with its wild post-punk jams served with an attitude and a half. And now we get to the this show's two headliners, with first up, The Everymen, eight-piece (the more, the merrier!) rock&roll explosion from New Jersey who recently released their debut LP 'NJHC" and finally, EndAnd, so-called 90s revivalists with the balls to push some aesthetics which not many under that label really seems ambitious enough to attempt, working on the follow-up to their -most impressive- debut.
