New Track: "Light Elating Everything" - Power Animal

It's been quite some time since we've had a new album from Deli fave Power Animal, a.k.a. Keith Hampson. Good Wind Pt. 1 is currently scheduled for release on November 10 via his charitable record label Human Kindness Overflowing, with  50% of its Bandcamp sales going to The Emergent Fund. Now, fortified into a four-piece, the band’s new single, “Light Elating Everything,” swirls in an electro-bouncing cloud of cathartic, thankful ambience. Amid the perpetual groove, an open letter of intimacy unfolds. They'll be hosting a dual record release celebration with Friendship on Friday, November 17 at Everybody Hits, with additional support from Tall Friend and Free Cake For Every Creature.





Record of the Month: Cende’s "#1 Hit Single" - live at Bowery on 12.09

Though in all likelihood failing to live up to the ambition of its title (no trap beats or Katy Perry features here), Cende’s debut album #1 Hit Single stomps with an impressive dazzle. In a spectacle of jangling guitars and it-came-from-the-garage energy, the eight tracks flutter by in less than 25 minutes. It’s so quick you barely let the four power poppers into your heart before they leave you crying “wait!” from the doorstep. It’s an easy album to throw on repeat and play over and overjust don't wear it out before December 9th when Cende opens for Vagabon at The Bowery Ballroom alongside Radiator Hospital. - Cameron Carr





Artist to check out: Odetta Hartman plays Rough Trade on 10.14

It is rare to stumble upon emerging artists who have the ability to convey intensity and emotion with only their voices and a few instruments - NYC/DC chanteuse Odetta Hartman possesses this skill. Inspired by old-timey country and anything rootsy, Odetta alternatively injects doses of tension, mystery and - always - oozes of character in anything she performs. With her latest original release (the 222 EP) dating back to 2015, we are owed some new material. In the meantime, you can see her live at Rough Trade on 10.14.

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





Katie Von Schleicher plays Union Pool on 10.19 before UK/EU tour

Singer-songwriter and vocalist for Wilder Maker's Katie Von Schleicher will play Union Pool as part of LPR Presents on October 19th. She's kept busy promoting her second commercial album, self-depreciatively titled Shitty Hits, which came out in July and was well received by Pitchfork, The Guardian, PopMatters, and other major publications. The Union Pool show will be one of Von Schleicher's last in NYC for a while, as she's setting off on a grand UK/EU tour for most of the fall. She'll venture through the UK, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands before heading back to the states and NYC in December. Hear "Sell It Back" from Shitty Hits below, and catch her before she crosses the pond. - Will Sisskind





New Trash Knife EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Local imprint FDH Records recently issued the self-titled EP from hardcore quintet Trash Knife. Resonating with a snarly sense of immediacy, these songs continuously push the pace, while demonstrating a tacky-tongue-twisting lyricism. Aggressively grabbing the reins in a firsthand, contemporary commentary, the album drives its points home quickly. Directly hammering to the point, it's both fun, and gone in a flash.
