The Shacks about to release debut EP, play BKLYN Bazaar on 09.29

Should you be in need of a magical something that can lull you to sleep during your stressful life in the city, look no further than Brooklyn's The Shacks and their first official single "Left It With The Moon." The song employs a timeless melody, Shannon Wise's delicate soprano, and a few other rather rudimental instruments to reach into the listener's buried childhood - and the sleeping proneness it entails: if sleeping like a baby is your ida of happiness, The Shacks are your kind of band. Earlier this year, the duo also unveiled a collaboration with instrumental NYC band El Michels Affair, which resulted in stunning single 'Strange Boy,' a more produced dream pop gem with shades of doo-wop complemented by an appropriately noir video (also streaming). Their self titled debut EP is scheduled to be released on October 28. Don't miss their Brooklyn Bazaar show on September 29!

We added both these tracks to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





Breanna Barbara brings her folkedelic blues rock to Sunnyvale on 10.27

With her third release Mirage Dreams, Brooklyn-based (via Minnesota and Florida) Breanna Barbara has put out an uber confident record that defies time and space. Her peculiar blend of blues, folk, and psychedelia transports us to the west coast in the summer of 1968. Yet, the word revival sounds reductive here: behind the familiar overdriven organs, twangy guitars, and expanded jams, live rare intensity and power. The album title track (streaming below) perfectly examplifies this artist's - quite literally - howling fervor. Don’t miss your chance to see her live at Sunnyvale on October 27, where she'll bring her tales of melancholy dreams, delusions, and demons.

Buzz Alert: serpentwithfeet to play Le Poisson Rogue Sept 30

NYC-based artist serpentwithfeet (aka Josiah Wise) is likely a man, but he delievers vocal lines with the intensity of something that lives outside the bounds of this dimension. This month he dropped his latest single "four ethers," a track that showcases both his almighty R&B vocal prowess, and his classically trained singing background. Wise's effortlessly florid singing would be remarkable on its own, but what's even more gripping is the music he pairs his vocals with. The instrumentals on "four ethers" charge forward with the gravitas of a requiem piece, slowly building in suspense only to torturously cut to a muted bass drum the moment you'd expect a big auditory payout. There is something solemn, something ethereal, perhaps supernal released in serpentwithfeet's music. Check out "four ethers" streaming below off of the newly released blisters EP, and be sure to catch him opening at Le Poisson Rouge on 9/30 for Jenny Hval.-Olivia Sisinni
