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





Fuzz rockers Peeling release debut EP, play Bovine Sex Club on 09.25

 Comprised by members of Dilly DallyOdonis Odonis and Mexican Slang, Peeling is a new Toronto super-group of sorts that's about to release their debut EP 'Rts in Paradise' on Buzz Records.  Single Leisure life plays with dissonance, odd tempos and seriously tense atmosphere to deliver a satisfying, modern post punk sound. Don't miss their upcoming show at Bovine Sex Club on September 25.

Wingtip releases indie pop single 'Rewind,' tours the US in the fall

Quirky production is something we relate to here at The Deli NYC - maybe because, in the not too distant past, that's what stellar local bands like Talking Heads and They Might Be Giants pulled off in rather epic ways. In the last year, Wingtip (Nick Perloff-Giles), has been releasing a series of dancy singles that found hundreds of thousand of online lovers, showcasing in each one of them an interest in slightly bending the rules of electronic dance music. None of them however is quite as quirky as this new single Rewind (streaming below) which features Sophie Strauss' youthful and chilled vocals. The song departs from Wingtip's dance-soul leanings, featuring a more indie pop approach that suits the vocalist's style and the track's content: "it's a song about love and loss, but also just about how things change slowly, and you don't notice until you pick your head up and wonder what happened." Wingtip just announced a fall tour whose NYC leg is scheduled at Output on November 10.

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





Expand Your Mind with Zozma's Psychedelic Production

The Deli Portland has had an eye on Zozma for a while, and we're glad to see that more listeners have been turned onto them as well. Psych gets used more as an added descriptor to other types of genres, or as an element of an album, but there exists a lack of local, modern acts that define the genre. 

Enter Zozma, a collection of spiritually connected beings that create more than just music; they create a movement. Their music roots itself in traditonal Middle Eastern piety, powerfully united with ethereal vocals and a mastered understanding of instruments otherworldly. You'll find yourself fully consumed by its aural dominance as if to be in a trance-like state, exactly like what is imagined when thinking of the psychedelic tunes dominated the 60's.

Be sure to catch Zozma during one of their occasional performances around town. Their live performances sound exactly like their recordings, elevated by a hypnotizing and engaging stage presence. It's a musical adventure every appreciator needs to experience. 

Congrats on the Artist of the Month win, Zozma!
