With dancing girls, colourful stage characters, rock ‘n’ roll and music hall influences – all informed by his Monty Pythonesque sensibility - the top-hatted faux-Brit Sir Jerry is a unique hybrid indeed.

It was recorded mostly in group houses across the East Coast with producer L. Skell (The Rude Staircase). Pitchfork praised its "thoughtful existentialism and strange, drowsy downers" (8.0 score), and NPR called it "playfully unpredictable and totally infectious." They toured heavily in a converted bread van, playing 300 self-booked shows across the country, and road-testing the songs that make up their new album, Young People's Church of the Air (Sockets Records, Sept 6, 2011). It was recorded at the Garden Center in Hockessin, DE, with Nick Krill (The Spinto Band) and Birdseed Shirt producer L. Skell. Young People's Church of the Air is fuzzy and warped, inspired by the cassette warble of Southeast Asian psych-pop. Its lyrics are darkly hopeful, exploring family, religion, death and joy. The songs are disparate, but unified, deriving their rhythmic feels from 80s pop, R&B, surf rock, dark funk, and Go-Go. They began as fruity loops-based bedroom jams, which were then introduced into the band environment, taking on a live energy and band identity. The album contains a mixture of studio sounds and home-recorded lo-fi noise. Deleted Scenes is Daniel Scheuerman (guitar, vocals), Matt Dowling (bass, keyboard), Dominic Campanaro (guitar, keyboards, samples), and Ricardo Lagomasino (drums). They have shared the stage with Cursive, Wild Nothing, Abe Vigoda, Black Kids, The Antlers, Medications, Akron/Family, Matt and Kim, and others. They have played SXSW, CMJ, and Pop Montreal.

  • The British group’s sound packs in an abundance of suave panache, ear-thwacking beats and heart-throttling melodies. Max McElligott and his crack combo have quickly cultivated a dedicated and avid fan base through two years of nearly non-stop live performances, including headline tours, support slots with Coldplay, Florence + The Machine, The Killers, The Naked And Famous, plus countless festival appearances.
