A Deli Premiere: "Radio" by Dr. Nocko and Mr. Nicholas

Nico Renzulli is showing his teeth in the latest single to be spawned by his project Dr. Nocko and Mr. Nicholas. If the charming growls, and even more deadly guitar riffs, seem familiar, that may be because the song titled “Radio” is a cover of a track previously written during Renzulli's days in Boston’s electro-rock group Jack Romanov. “Radio” lets loose, with gritty power chords and high-impact drums that speed toward tumultuous breakdowns; the slightly softer touch of Renzulli’s current project still lingers in the choruses where his vocals slip and expose a more refined appearance. Renzulli explains the inspiration for the track as follows: “Radio was inspired by Denmark’s National Treasure, Lars Ulrich. In a 2015 interview, Ulrich talked about how Metallica used to fill out their early live shows by playing covers of obscure songs from metal bands that no one had heard of. The crowds never questioned it, they had no reason to.” We can’t question the symbiotic relationship that exists between an artist’s past, present, and future: all is one, and one is all. We are thrilled to premiere this single for you below! - Rene Cobar

FREE $$$ rocket all the way to the bank on “Support,” play Our Wicked Lady 2.28

White knuckle post-punk barrels down the highway on Support*, the standout 2019 effort by New York trio FREE $$$. Armed to the teeth with guitars and marked by an ear for infectious danceable grooves, the band’s first full length evokes the spirit of the Talking Heads infused with the larger-than-life bravado of early 70s experimental rock, this latter facet a product of frontman Ben Petrisor’s frothy vocal performance. Petrsior’s pipes are immediately evocative of several similarly guttural singers who precede FREE $$$ (Captain Beefheart and Joe Cocker are among the first to come to mind), the centerpiece of the outfit’s drama that puts their sound over the edge; it embeds Support* with a necessary energy that in large part makes the record feel just on cusp of spinning out of control, vocals that, alongside breakbeat percussive rides and driving guitars, exhilarate and enthrall even the passive listener. Stream it below (preferably while already seated), and catch the band at Our Wicked Lady on February 28th for the Winter Madness semi-finals.

   

Flasyd's self-titled is fuzzed-out and kickass, plays Venus in Furs 2.26

If you relish listening to bands who are “always fast [but] hardly accurate,” in their own words, then the freewheeling punk outfit Flasyd may be your cup of tea. Their self-titled EP loses no speed over the course of three short-and-sweet tracks, all characterized by a healthy amount of bright fuzz, occasionally indiscernible lyrics, and daring percussive theatrics. Highlight minute and change “Johnny” is nothing short of a sonic defibrillation, marked by punchy drums and a scathing hardcore lyrical performance — stream it below ahead of Flasyd’s February 26th performance at Venus in Furs.
