Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

THE DELI NYC'S TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY ISSUE IS OUT!

On a Friday night of December 2004, at Manhattan venue Sin-e' in Attorney Street, an emerging NYC band with a home recorded debut album played The Deli's launch party. It was a packed crowd and everyone was holding the first issue of The Deli, whose cover these upstarts were gracing. That band was Grizzly Bear. It remains one of the most exciting nights of my life, the night I understood that this magazine had a shot at being here to stay.

Now, this ten-year anniversary issue hopes to be a(nother) celebration of this great scene, in a less cluttered, more narratorial and visually appealing form thanks to art critic Brian Chidester's work as a guest editor. This issue also comes with my deep hope for NYC to keep churning out exceptional music of all kinds for the foreseeable future.

FIND THE PAPER ISSUE OF THE DELI IN MANHATTAN AND BROOKLYN, READ IT IN PDF HERE, OR BUY IT HERE FOR JUST $5.

Editor-in-Chief and Publisher

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

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


d's "house sounds" shrouded in mystery

Not much information is offered about house sounds, a short gem of an EP released to Bandcamp by d (aka Danielle Capalbo). The lo-fi album features minimal production and instrumentation, mostly relying on guitar and Capalbo’s never-showy voice. Its six short songs are as beautiful as they are muddled, her harmonies often hidden beneath the thick reverb of the guitar. house sounds appears to be an intended accompaniment to “Waking Up: A Zine About Self-Discovery,” a literary magazine Capalbo created with her own writing and photography, which can be purchased on d’s Bandcamp now. – Jake Reed

Tumbling Bones folks things up with new singles

In December, Tumbling Bones previewed its upcoming full-length debut with the singles “Broken Things” and “Money is for Spending.” On the former, the folksy trio borrows Fleet Foxes’ bright vocal harmonies to tell the story of a girl who “doesn’t have many unbroken dreams,” and adds a touch of banjo and violin to give the song an all-American sound. Americana comes even further into the forefront on the up-tempo “Money is for Spending,” which just begs to be played at your next communal square dance. Catch the guys at a Pete Seeger tribute tonight at One Longfellow Square in Portland, Maine, and look for their upcoming album this spring. – Jake Reed
