A Heart is a Spade: Savoir Adore Debuts New Video



December 2014
Frankie Cosmos
"Zentropy
"
mp3

If you like unassuming, short and charming pop songs about high school, firemen and buses, look no further than 19 year old singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos. In her just released first full-length 'Zentropy,' (though she's put out at least 40 other digital records on Bandcamp over the years - no joke!) Greta Kline reveals much of her inner child, whether singing about what her dad is up to or how birthdays don't mean you're getting older. But 'Zentropy' equally exposes a young lady just beginning to wrestle with explorations of love and life anxieties. It's a fascinating journey just begun, and songs like "Birthday" (streaming below), showcase a melodic talent that's not afraid to experiment with tempo changes and assorted influences, without losing her signature, intimate style. 
If Frankie Cosmos manages to keep half these levels of prolificity in her 20s, we can definitely expect a bunch of hits from her. Because great music - like everything else - is all about trying hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

The Deli's SXSW Issue 2014 is online!

Read it digitally here.

P.S. 10k free copies of this issue hit the street of Austin during SXSW Music week!


The Deli's playlist of songs by emerging New England bands is updated!

Check it out HERE - it's basically the best of our New England blog in music! You can always access this playlist by clicking on "LOCAL CHANNEL" on the Navigation bar.

P.S. We couldn't add some bands because we didn't find their music on Soundcloud.


Loupo experiments with the softer side of hip-hop

If your playlist is lacking something a little more relaxed, perfect for hanging with friends or a long drive, we recommend Montpelier’s Loupo. The hip-hop producer crafts beats stuffed with samples and the production tics necessary to make an instrumental track stand out without vocals from a featured artist. On “GottaGo!!” he turns a vocal sample into its own wah-wahing instrument, and on his latest, “GritZZ,” guitar and drum loops cycle as clanking piano keys reverberate into the distance. Of course, Loupo’s experimental creations are ripe for the picking by up-and-coming rappers – take a listen to Notation and Chel Strong’s “To The Sky,” a song released earlier this month that was helmed by the Vermont producer. – Jake Reed

Nautica releases "winter" EP

Recorded in a Vermont basement in January, Nautica’s winter is a charmingly lo-fi set. The four-track EP begins with the fuzzy opening riff of “All I Can Be,” which works its way into a catchy, distortion-heavy frenzy of a love song. The trio shows off a softer side on “Whatever You Want to Call It, James,” accompanying the song’s chorus with falsetto harmonies – before immediately turning the guitar effect pedals back on. A recent post on the band's Facebook page revealed that plans for a short tour later this month have been scrapped, but you can check out the Burlington up-and-comers at the Elks Lodge in Cambridge, MA, on March 23. – Jake Reed

New England Music Awards Week: Jatoba

 

New England Music Awards week continues with the three-piece Jatoba, a self-described “groove-grass” band that is nominated for Best in State: Vermont. The group combines traditional bluegrass tempos, bumping bass lines and an onslaught of other instruments including the sitar and the banjo. Jatoba has been on the local circuit since 2008 and released its first album “Death, Fire & Picnic Tables” in 2011. Here is what John Samison, who plays mandolin, acoustic guitar, sitar and mandola in the band, has to say.
