It’s time for you all to get acquainted with the band that The Deli Magazine calls “the most original still-obscure band playing in New York”. ALEX DELIVERY is Nik Bozic, Marika Kandelaki, Robert Lombardo, Colin Ryan and Yegang Yoo. This Brooklyn-based quintet sounds like nothing you have ever heard before. They take cues from elements of Krautrock, space rock, electro-dance music, and musique concr?te and mash them all into a delicious sonic goo with a flavor all its own. Their otherworldly approach extends far beyond the auditory, as Alex Delivery have demonstrated their penchant for unique visual expression, as well. Their beautifully detailed album cover art comes from 6 original oil paintings made by multi-instrumentalist Kandelaki.
After nearly 2 years in the making, Alex Delivery’s debut full-length, “Star Destroyer”, will be available on April 24, 2007. In the meantime, the lead song, “Komad”, is available for free download here
For those of you that missed their wholly impressive performance at the Brahloween CMJ showcase in November, you can check out a quick YouTube snippet here. If you look closely, you just might catch a simian drummer and a poised and graceful Tinman (or woman…):
You can catch Alex Delivery on the road this May when they embark upon a U.S. tour, opening up for Frog Eyes. More details and tour dates to follow.
