Bluegrass artist Billy Strings releases "Taking Water" from upcoming sophomore album

Billy Strings has released "Taking Water", his first single from his upcoming sophomore album HOME, set to come out on September 27th. While Michigan-born Strings' acoustic-heavy sound remains undeniably bluegrass -- complete with accompaniment from the banjo, fiddles, and bass -- he finds ways to add in hints of punk, ambient, and psych rock to his tunes. It results in a gripping country sound that makes a song like "Taking Water" a breathtaking listen. Strings will hit the road this month on a nationwide tour supporting the release of HOME; catch him in Nashville when he returns for a show on September 11th at Americanafest. Take a listen to "Taking Water" below. - Will Sisskind





New Track: "Cursed" - Grayling

“Cursed” is the latest single from Lexi Campion, a.k.a. Grayling, who recently signed with 6131 Records. Drums and bass converge accelerating the track aggressively forward as the vocals enter in a momentary reprieve, but then shift in an uproarious assertive chorus. One becomes invigorated by the fuzz-laced, bass-thumping, tenacious melody.

New Track: "Get Lost" - Queen of Jeans

Queen of Jeans's forthcoming album, If you're not afraid, I'm not afraid, is slated to arrive on August 23 via Topshelf Records. The trio recently shared a new video, co-directed by Miriam Devora & Bob Sweeney, for its lead single, “Get Lost”. It appears to also mark the departure of Nina Scotto from the group. (You can check the debut single, "Time Is Right," from her new project Pouring Silver HERE.) Addressing feelings of isolation and sadness and coming to terms with them through personal strength and acceptance, the band's latest track gathers anthemic momentum. It's an absolutely lovely sampling of what's to come. You can catch Queen of Jeans headlining Boot & Saddle on Friday, September 6. 





A Deli Premiere: "Live It Up (feat. Lanna)" by Tano Brock

You could say Tano Brock has been living it up the last couple of years, traveling from his native San Francisco and relocating to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. While in Bean Town Brock has managed to keep busy and capture the spirit of his travels with his latest single “Live It Up” which features vocals from Brock’s Bay Area friend Lanna. “Live It Up” delivers an impressive grouping of pop elements that along with some R&B drizzle, create a track ideal for the summer. The kick drum driven song is layered with synthesizer thrusts that fill enough sonic space to create a solid foundation for Brock and Lanna’s vocal dance. Brock is confident in his vocal delivery: the singer’s lead melodies entrance and he packs surprises with rich harmonies at every turn. Brock, at a young age, is showing his acute ear for pop music’s demands by creating colorful compositions that hook listeners with serious intent. The singer/songwriter is cruising through the summer in style and prepping some shows for Boston peeps to attend. We are premiering “Live It Up” for you below. - Rene Cobar

Fresh Buzz: Ghost Funk Orchestra Releases Single, "Skin I'm In"

The output of NYC-based Ghost Funk Orchestra is becoming increasingly more sophisticated, and the group is also playing more frequently this year, which is always a good sign. Their most recent LP release, A Song For Paul (a band member's grandfather) is a complex matter propelled by a 10-piece band comprising horns, woodwinds, strings, keys, a tambourine, on top of the expected drums/bass/guitar. Their latest single "Skin I'm In" is an excersize of restrained psychedelia at times reminiscent of unforgettable British band Broadcast.

Featuring effected vocals that span layers of groovy orchestral textures, the single seemlessly blends elements from ganres as disparate as funk, noise rock and Eastern music. This is one of the coolest track we stumbled upon this year; you can check out Ghost Funk Orchestra at Elsewhere on July 30th at 8 PM. - Susan Moon
