Buscabulla
"Kitsune
"
mp3

"Debut EP ""Kitsuné"" by Puerto Rico/Brooklyn band Buscabulla (Spanish slang for 'troublemaker'), is one of the most beautiful and intriguing records to catch our ears in quite some time. In its four tracks, the band effortlessly blends electro, industrial, world music and dream/pop into a very enjoyable final product. Opening track ""Caer"" alternates gritty guitar loops with liquid synths, while singer Raquel Berrios' voice charms and soothes with minimal pop melodies sung in Spanish, but that seem to bear some kind of Japanese influence. Metelé is a more traditional electronic, atmospheric ballad reminiscent of Air but still dominated by an Eastern sounding melody, while ""Temporal"" - the most experimental track in the EP - blends the clanging of a mechanical loop with what sounds like a synchopated, finger piano sample, while distorted guitars swells drive the song through its tension and release cycles. Final track ""Sono"" - one of the strongest on the record - recycles an idyllic, 60s sounding flute sample and surrounds it with a funky drum pattern and all sorts of distorted and percussive sounds - all very organic sounding - while Raquel indulges in a simple melody that seems inspired by nursery rhymes. Buscabulla's ""Kitsuné,"" with its incredible array of ethnic influences filtered through a Western musical lens, represents as close as it gets how today's NYC music should sound."

Show Review: Fly Golden Eagle at Queen Art Collective 11.15

October 14th marked the release of Fly Golden Eagle's "Quartz," a 26-track odyssey inspired by 1973 art-flick "Holy Mountain." A month later, after an LA release and an epic fall tour they brought it home to Nashville. The Deli caught the last show in a weekend full of performances, a stacked lineup including Faux Ferocious, Chrome Pony, and Clear Plastic Masks put on at Meth Dad HQ Queen Art Collective. Read more about the evening by clicking HERE, and listen to the scaled-down, stand-alone accompanying Fly Golden Eagle release "Quartz Bijou" below.


Show Alert: Dustin Sellers, Kelly Ruth and Kylie Rothfield at The Stone Fox 11.19

We highly recommend heading out to The Stone Fox tonight to catch this lineup: Kelly Ruth, Dustin Sellers and Kylie Rothfield. These three artists boast distinctly different styles, but when taking into account their healthy respect for classics, the evening comes together as a cohesive whole. We're always tickled when there's an underlying un-or-intentional theme. The show tonight starts at 8pm, and cover is $5.

Kelly Ruth channels a 1940's-jazz-chanteuse-via-Jenny-Lewis in her indie-folk tunes. It's always a question whether she will break out her upright bass during a show, but intelligent songwriting and poignant lyrics are never a variable.  Ruth recieved a ton of buzz around her interpretation of "Monster Mash," a video created to help promote epic Halloween party Monster Bash 2014, in which she sings really well and murders a few Nashville friends.

Dustin Sellers carries on the retro tradition of his other project The Magnolia Sons, hitting the stage with a group of American Bandstand-ready musicians. He the counters skinny ties and homages to soul greats with a hefty dose of folk and alternative to his music, ending up at an intersection of some unlikely roads that totally mesh thanks to his studied songwriting. Sellers is working on a second full-length album with a tenative December release date.

Kylie Rothfield interprets American blues in the school of Stevie Ray Vaghan with a Adele filter. The 22-year-old is already a salty road dog since her graduation from Boston's Berklee College of Music, with a few national and one internatinoal tours already under her belt. She's putting the finishing touches on a brand new single, but for right now we're charmed by the walk she takes up and down the fretboard on her song "Cold in My Soul."


Bones Owens Releases EP "Hurt No One"

We caught Bones Owens by chance in March at The End. We were there to see the band before, and figured we'd stick around a little to check out the next guy. We could always bounce if he sucked. What we heard left us gobsmacked. Owens and his band whipped through a set of beautifully hewn, strikingly sad, alt-country twinged songs that gave us the same sort of shivers we'd probably have gotten if it were fourteen years ago and we were watching Ryan Adam's try out some tunes from his new solo album. Since then we always managed to miss the scant handful of shows he played around Nashville, and Owen's appeared to be pretty busy as a touring musician for Yelawolf. So imagine our surprise when this 5-song EP "Hurt No One" was quietly released a few days ago with a brief message and some thanks to its many contributors. We're so glad that it wasn't a fluke that we witnessed back in the spring. Do yourself a favor and throw the man five bones (c'mon folks, you knew it was coming) and download the EP from iTunes. -Terra James-Jura
