Nora Rothman releases self-titled debut EP on 7/21

The calming and mesmerizing voice of Nora Rothman is both refreshing and contemporary; the simplicity of her newest five track EP will have new and old fans swooning over her. After taking a six month gap to help with the Clinton campaign, Rothman’s return to music is backed with Grammy nominated producer Felix McTeigue and Drew Guido. Rothman’s beautiful sophistication has remedies of Norah Jones, Dillon and Sarah Jaffe, and it is simply breath taking.

Rothman will release her self-titled EP on July 21, and will have a release show at The Hotel Café on the 19th at 8 pm. Go show some love. - Kayla Hay


Tempest le Mans gain understanding on new single "To Blame"

Power-pop duo Tempest le Mans have been quietly refining their songwriting acumen ever since they graced us with Four Songs back in 2015. Their new single, "To Blame", is an articulate and deeply felt ballad on making amends, calmly sung by Nathan Castial as it unfolds into a shimmering rocker that channels the likes of Matthew Sweet and Lou Barlow. It's another pop gem from a band who's inching their way into a potentially stellar full-length. 

"To Blame" is the first single off of their latest EP, Apology. 

Bicoastal project Drinker gets love from Buzzband.la + plays Cape House on 06.30

Being the first to blog about a talented emerging artist is the single most fulfilling thing for any music critic (only second to seeing that artist become huge!), and that's what The Deli is all about. Buzzbands.la does a lot of breaking new bands too, and we are more than happy to point you in their direction for what is, in all likelihood, the first review for bicostal synth-pop band Drinker, the recording project of singer / songwriter Aaron Mendelsohn and producer/composer Ariel Loh. The fact that reputable NYC show organizers Pop Gun booked them for a show at Cape House in Brooklyn on June 30th comes as a further proof that this act has potential. Check out below the only single currently available for streaming, the melancholic synthetic ballad 'Which Way Is South.'

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