Children Having Children
Children Having Children
"A way back to youth," offers frontman/songwriter Steven Kaiser when asked to describe his band Children Having Children. "Atomic rock."

Steeped in equal parts rock & roll, alternative, and post-everything, then stirred with the orchestral ambitions of the cinema and sweetened with noise, CHC likes to do as they please in an attempt to pay homage to the legacy of great songwriting. Kaiser sees the band as "the outlet for things I can't say any other way. There's a density, a symmetry, an inevitability to our music -- tension and release with a deceptive ability to explode at any moment. Pressing a needle up to the nerve."

Drummer Matthew Lauritsen joined in early 2016, with bassist Matt Heymann and keyboardist Ryan Deeter rounding out the lineup a few month later. The current incarnation made its live debut with a string of packed NYC shows before heading into the studio to work on a trio of EPs. Alibi is due out in February with the other two EPs to follow later in the year. The band premiere its first video for the single "Checkerboard Red" (dir. by James Berry & Matt Heymann) in January.

These EPs will be the first recordings since the band delivered its critically-inflamed debut album Mice in late 2014. Following two warmup EPs (Flush and Children Having Children), Mice featured guest appearances by Terry Moore of The Parlour Tricks, Elijah Miller of Hawk and Dove, and Rob Van Saders of Habits. As with Alibi, the album's artwork showcased the photography of frequent collaborator David A. Palatsi.
Hawk and Dove
Hawk and Dove
Hawk and Dove is a post-Americana rock band with a calm-before-the-storm approach, a contemporary yet classic sound that's like the psychedelic country David Bowie never wrote. “Hawk and Dove channel a 60’s pop band and a modern alternative outfit,” The Deli says. Supajam muses, “it's almost like an alt act doing the seventies."

The band recently toured to and from SXSW, playing 19 shows in 21 days. They received rave reviews, both for their recordings and for their live performances. The Denton Chronicle declares, “Hawk & Dove makes quiet music. Except that Hawk & Dove makes loud, intense rock music. If ever two conflicting things were true, the Brooklyn sextet’s music hits that mark with conviction.” They shared the stage with Okkervil River, The Whigs, Jason Anderson, and other accomplished musicians. Back at home again (jiggity-jig), they are poised to release a new record this year and to continue making music and touring to support it.

Tonight at Bowery Electric, Elijah Miller will perform songs off the forthcoming album as a solo performance.
