Jess Best at the Bowery Ballroom 10.28

Jess Best and her vision of jazz-inspired pop sparkle in rose-gold and are as cozy as broken-in denim. Her contribution to this summer’s albums, “Saturday,” showcases a mature songwriter gifted with an incredible voice (and the right producer, co-writer Connor Schultze). The album evolved from the more traditional jazz found in 2014’s “Gone Baby” and 2016’s more experimental “Kid Again,” which offered concurrent visions of youth: joyful pop or melancholic jazz.

However, with “Saturday," Jess Best is able to successfully synthesize both genres into a fresh examination of everyday life. You can see her at the Bowery Ballroom on 10.28. - Amanda Ogea





New Line Leader LP Available for Streaming & Download

Wilt, the freshly released LP from Line Leader, rattles the sonic cage. Produced by Kevin Brusha, the band cultivates an unabashed, cosmic-transmitted series of songs. Purposely jarring as the menacing, musical torrent takes on the obstacles lying within its path, a Tasmanian devil of unified sound ravages your being. Line Leader unapologetically melds the noise of raw material with a distinct, melodic core. (Photo by Stavi Xinou)





New Music Video: "Forever Overhead" - Cherry

Cherry recently shared a crunchy, new single called "Forever Overhead," which premiered over at Post-Trash. The mischievous, childhood reflection features Lame-O Records' Eric Osman bashing away on the drums, and it is also accompanied by a hazy collection of footage, directed by Spenser Colmbs. "Dumbness," Cherry's first full-length album, will be out on September 29 via Lame-O, and the record release celebration will be held on Saturday, October 7 at Boot & Saddle, where they'll be joined by Yankee Bluff and Eight.





Alt folk artist Cape Francis celebrates debut release at Mercury on 09.22

Cape Francis is the solo-project of Kevin Olken Henthorn and features music that neatly fits into a self-made nexus of indie folk/rock/pop and “post” iterations of each. Cape Francis is able to oscillate between slow, melancholic elegies for what is lost (“Iditarod”) and heart-felt indie anthems (“5 in the Morning”). Regardless of presentation, Cape Francis skillfully evokes Northeastern wistful angst. His debut album “Falling into Pieces” is out September 22nd, and NYC’s Mercury Lounge will be hosting the release show on September 29th. - Amanda Ogea

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





The Beaches - New Video is "Money"

Named after the area in Toronto in which they grew up, The Beaches are just about ready to explode. These gals know how to rock n' roll. They have just released their first single “Money” from their upcoming album. Rippin' tune with sensible, catchy melodies and a 60’s stoner voice that’s almost in Grace Slick territory. They are getting ready to release their first full length album on October 13th and will be touring North America with Death From Above 1979 for the fall. The final stop on the tour will be right here in Toronto on December 1st at The Phoenix. I dig their style, easily one of the bands you need to know right now. – Kris Gies
