A Deli NYC Premiere: Julian Cubillos' video for 'Scared'

LA-born Julian Cubillos graced the world last Friday (just in time for Halloween weekend!) with two-track single Scared, his newest release on Tiny Montgomery Records since his 2015 full-length album Evil. Scared – which includes the A-side of the same name and the B-side “Can I Win” – offers the same mind-warping lo-fi and colorful gravitas as Julian’s past output. 

The brand-new psychedelic video – from which the single’s cover takes its image – comes from the mind of Brooklyn visual and recording artist Christina Schneider. In it, she blends clips of old horror films (Psycho, to name one) with CGI images of rotating knives, vintage commercials for toys and toiletries, and images of bugs that crawl uncomfortably close. Check it out below. – Will Sisskind


New Music Video: "Holy Like You" - Pill Friends

As part of Vancouver’s File Under: Music's One Song at a Time video series, Pill Friends has released a new song and corresponding video for “Holy Like You,” which premiered yesterday at The A.V. Club. While the video navigates the warmly-shaded spectrum of sea and skies, the song swims in a subdued stream of sadness. You can also play with the track's stems to create your own remix HERE.


Buscabulla unveils video for “Tártaro,” tours with Helado Negro

We are glad to see Buscabulla back in action - the stylish, Brooklyn based Puerto Rican band graced the cover of our magazine back in 2015 (issue #43 of The Deli NYC). The duo recently released a new single entitled “Tártaro,” which came with this elegant video. After an exciting summer during which they toured Chile (!) they are now back in the US on a mini-east-coast-tour with Helado Negro, which included a gig at Bowery Ballroom last night. Looking forward to a new release!


Frances Cone soars in The Deli's Charts, plays Baby's All Right on 11.07

We go a long way with Brooklyn songwriter Frances Cone - she played one of our SXSW shows back in 2013 - and it's great to see her climb our 'NYC New Bands With Buzz" top ten chart on this same page. After her 2013 debut album 'Come Back,' her releases have been somewhat sporadic, but high in quality. Earlier in 2016, her intimately atmospheric, slow burning single 'Arizona,' caused a stir on Spotify, approaching 4 million plays, and opening up a series of show opportunities in reputable venues all along the east coast, including a show at Music Hall of Williasburg on September 30th. Frances and her band's next show will be at Baby's All Right on 11.07.

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


New Music Video: "Moody" - Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans take advantage of a beautiful backdrop, where the the ocean meets the sky, in their latest video for the single "Moody". Shot and directed by Bob Sweeney, the four-piece indulge in a lazy day at the shore before taking an odd, fully-clothed dip. You can ask them what this video is all about this evening when they headline Boot & Saddle. (Photo by Rachel Del Sordo)
