Soul Pop artist Raveena unveils self-directed video

A shiver runs down our spines every time we read the words "self-directed video," in particular when applied to artists that play musical genres that require top notch production values (like soul music). But in the case of NYC's soul-pop artist Raveena (previously known as Raveena Aurora) our premonitions were proved wrong. With the help of director James Ronkko, the artist of Indian and American descent created a simple, but truly beautiful video that matches the breezy, lightheartedly intimate vibes of her single "Sweet Time." A woman of many talents, Raveena not only looks incredibly comfortable in front of the camera, but also supports her art with commitment to social causes rarely found in soul pop acts. A debut EP is scheduled to be released at some point soon.





Strawberry Runners play Trans Pecos on 10.21 + talk about pedals on Delicious Audio

There’s a certain overarching sweetness that consumes the Denver/New York-based group, Strawberry Runners, but a close listen will reveal a far more complicated sound. The pop-driven arrangements and saccharine melodies support lyrics filled with darkness -a juxtaposition that's at once uplifting and upsetting. The band is about to release a new EP entitled "In the Garden, In the Night," with a show at Trans Pecos on October 21st. Emi Night, the singing-songwriting force behind this project, is very much into stompboxes and our friends at Delicious Audio asked her some questions about it.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best indie songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





New Track: "Fear of Nothing" - American Trappist

“Fear of Nothing” is one of the singles featured on American Trappist’s new release Amuse​-​oreille, Vol. 1. Saturated in a dreary, surf tone, the song blooms from lingering melancholy. However, despite those indecisive hesitations, an enthusiastic instrumental momentum emerges. Overcoming the anchor of insecurities, the track catches fire toward its conclusion, taking on the obstacles that lie in one’s path with a newfound resolve.





Brenda - "Children" Music Video

Here’s a really cool video from one of the top bands bursting from Toronto’s thriving garage/pysch scene. Brenda has released a new single from their upcoming EP “Creeeper”. “Children” sneaks along with a creepy pace and the video falls right in line with that ambience. They smoothly transition from dark clown quiet riffage to a frenetic blend of fuzz, verb and more fuzz. You should watch this video alone late at night while playing Resident Evil on Playstation 1. Brenda plays Friday (October 20) at The Monarch Tavern with Crazy Bones and Pink Acid Wash. – Kris Gies





New Borzoi Boy EP Available for Streaming & Download

Philly singer-songwriter Alexandra Gordon is now recording under the moniker Borzoi Boy ("like the Russian greyhound"). Enter The Light captures a certain hushed, candlelit, emotive intimacy. Letting the listener in on the thoughts that are encased in one's mind, Gordon figures out her next move, while reminiscing on love and feelings of loneliness. The duality of brightness and bleakness grips as the sun trickles in through the curtains.
