A Deli Premiere: Oginalii's "7799"

When it comes to the Nashville-based sludge-pop four-piece Oginalii, slowing down is not an option. With forthcoming EP The Grey coming out on October 20th, their build-up of momentum has been nonstop, between coverage, concerts, and SXSW showcases —and their music is the same way. The female-fronted group, whose name translates to “my friend” in Cherokee, is making waves in the Nashville scene with their complex arrangements, unapologetic songwriting, and technical skill. In the track “7799” (streaming below), front-woman Emma Hoeflinger’s vocals are positively lethal, while the track impressively alternates between a 7/8 and 9/8 time signature. Oginalii will be hitting up The Cobra tomorrow (09.22) for a live show that will definitely hush any doubts about the state of the local Nashville scene. - Lilly Milman

New Music Video: "Circles" - Berdmajik

Featured on Spells, the debut album from Berdmajik, a.k.a. Donnie Felton (of Grubby Little Hands), “Circles” is steeped in a mesmerizing, electro-soul vacuum. Its corresponding video, produced by animator/videographer Andrew Knives, extends those hopeful, daydreaming vibes via a kaleidoscope of imagery. One becomes pleasantly trapped in an endless loop of optimism. You can catch Berdmajik, who is slated to perform with Sound of Ceres and Retroglyphs, on Monday, September 25 at Kung Fu Necktie.





Kino Kimino brings their garagey post punk to Alphaville 9/25

Brooklyn darlings Kino Kimino serve up gutsy, garage-y pop with a serious side of post punk. The brainchild of Kim Talon, the band features deadpan vocals, gritty guitars and 90's cool-kid vibes. Their latest release, 2016's "Bait is for Sissies" is unapologetic, innovative, fierce and hits in just all the right ways. Check out Kino Kimino at Alphaville on 9/23 but stream them below in the meantime. - Olivia Sisinni





Debut Julia Rainer LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Spirits, the debut full-length album from singer-songwriter Julia Rainer, taps into a soulful, stripped-down serenity via Creep Records. Soothing, meditative vocals illustrate a full range of emotions, tugging at one’s heartstrings. Without the weight/protection of overly complicated instrumentation, there’s a subtle, haunting nature. The shield is down, allowing the songwriting spell to take hold.





Úlfur's New LP "Arborescence" Out October 2017

Úlfur, the post-rock project of Úlfur Hansson, readily reflects the artist's native Iceland. At times, his songs are as desolate and expansive as the country's central highlands, a trait shared in the music of some of his fellow Icelanders, like Sigur Rós or Ólöf Arnalds.

However, Úlfur's blend of electronic and acoustic instruments (some of which are homemade like his SEGULHARPA, an electromagnetic harp) never feels alienatingly robotic or inhuman. Úlfur's music is a nuanced reflection of the natural world. Since his move to NYC, his music has exchanged its wilderness sensibility for dreamier, folk-like soundscapes. Make sure to check out Úlfur's new single "Fovea" from his upcoming album Arborescence, available next month. --Amanda Ogea
