Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

Daddy Long Legs play Kings County Cookoutin Wburg on 08.14

Daddy Long Legs play Kings County Cookoutin Wburg on 08.14

Daddy Long Legs is a man. A tall man. A tall, well-dressed, imposing man who blows the harmonica as if breathing life and soul into Delta bluesmen long dead. Daddy Long Legs is also a band.  A blues rock band from Brooklyn, fronted by this tall man of the same name. But this Daddy has more legs -- those belonging to guitarist Murat Akturk and drummer Josh Styles. Styles upon styles upon styles is what they have -- a trio of characters forging rock n' roll spectacle for the eyes and ears, hearkening back to when troubadours drank moonshine and took their role as entertainers more seriously. You can feel this music.m It's visceral - not polished clean. The trio is the modern day incarnation of a bad-ass record collection of rare pressings and vintage out-of-print curios.  See for yourself -- watch the world premiere of this short documentary film by Deli contributor Ryan Henriquez, or catch them Sunday in Williamsburg at the Kings County Cookout before they hit the road for a west coast tour with Apache. Kings County Cookout @ Lady Jay’s. 633 Grand St. Sun. Aug 14 @ 4pm.
