Mountainwalker brings genre bending folk to Acme Feed & Seed on 10/11

Combining trippy, layered back beats with smooth vocal hooks, Mountainwalker is a genre-bending folk musician whose rich lyricism has us totally hooked. Utilizing complex rhyme schemes and elements from psych and indie rock the Nashville-based artist's musical approach is unique if not a little unorthodox. Either way, we're major fans. Check out Mountainwalker at the Acme Feed & Seed 10/11 alongside The Medium and Devon Gilfillian and listen to "What You Got" off his latest release Parlor Songs streaming below.-Olivia Sisinni





New Suburban Living LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The pillowy propulsion of percussion, keys and bass outline the musical framework of Suburban Living’s new album Almost Paradise, available now via 6131 Records. Piecing together instrumental elements into the light-as-a-feather sheet of sound, the band develops a head-floating, dream-pop environment, while exploring a cavernous emotional depth. You can catch Suburban Living and their new tunes tomorrow night at The Foundry with Sunflower Bean and The Lemon Twigs. (Photo by Emily Dubin)





Jaye Bartell brings his moody folk to Baby's All Right on 10.16

Jaye Bartell's "Light Enough" is a record born out of a very particular kind of self-inflicted seclusion: the paradoxical one happening in one the most populated pieces of land in the world: Brooklyn. Somebody's referred to this phenomenon as "The Lonesome Crowded West." Greenpoint, specifically, is where the songwriter moved to in 2013, from Asheville, NC (he's originally from Massachusetts), looking - we assume - for inspiration after a series of early releases. The only embeddable song from the album, 'Laundry Line' (streaming) perfectly represent the full album, echoing at once Leonard Cohen's intimate existentialism and Syd Barrett's droney, suspended melodies (Barrett's fans should check out opener 'G & Me'). The mostly acoustic guitar work also deserves a mention, for its beautiful simplicity. The fact that Baby's All Right booked Jaye is an extra reason to pay attention to this artist, so you may want to check out his upcoming show on October 16.

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