Show Review: the NEW DEAL 5/7/11

9 May

This past Saturday I got to see one of my favorite bands of all time, the New Deal, play one of their last shows at Terminal 5 in New York City.  If you haven’t heard or seen the New Deal yet, now is your last chance, as they are calling it quits (forever) at the end of this year.

The New Deal describe themselves as “live.progressive.breakbeat.house” and they are exactly that.  The band consists of only three members playing keyboard/synth, bass, and drums. Their shows are always crazy, high-energy dance parties that are pretty much improvisational.  It is truly an experience to see them live!

Here’s a video of their encore, where they played an extended version of one of my favorite songs, “Gone Gone Gone”.

Rumor has it that the band is releasing all of their recent live soundboard recordings via LiveDownloads.com, so check there often for a recording of this crazy show and others like it from this tour!  In the meantime download/listen one of my favorite tapes of the NewDeal Back in 2004 from the Bowery Ballrom in NYC.

The New Deal- A Little While

4 Feb

The New Deal is a 3-piece electronic band from Toronto, Canada. They “play live progressive house, but can rock out with the D&B and get down-tempo-cozy-dub on you and then hit you with some new rave-rock vengeance” (Facebook). Put simply, they are awesome. This song, “A Little While,” has a drum and bass feel, but its played by a live band so that makes it all the better. I’m crossing my fingers for The New Deal to play at Bonnaroo this year! Thank you to my buddy Mike D for this wonderful tune!
