All Together Festival

Tender Loving Empire’s 11th annual Friends and Friends of Friends compilation is being released soon. TLE has described it as “by far the best grouping of music that we’ve ever been able to put in one place at one time.” But that’s not all the record label is giving us. TLE and White Owl Social Club are teaming up to throw All Together Festival. The festival, which takes place next Saturday, August 18th, is a celebration of the compilation release. It will feature live sets from local acts such as Luz Elena Mendoza of Y La Bamba, Chanti Darling, and The Fur Coats. The bands will be playing starting at 2 in the afternoon, and starting at 10 DJ’s Rap Class and Max Bass will be taking over. The show is 21+, and free. You can find the event page and full lineup here, and pre-order the Friends and Friends of Friends compilation here.

Kathy Foster's New Project Roseblood

When the Thermals first announced they were disbanding, everyone in the indie rock scene was, understandably, a little sad. However, we don’t have to be too sad for too long because bassist Kathy Foster’s latest project, Roseblood, is just as enjoyable. It’s a much different side to Foster, slower and sadder than the work she did in the Thermals. This past month Roseblood released a music video for their first single, “Black Veil." The song is beautiful and melancholic, full of the passion and vitality Foster is known for. The lyrics are cerebral without being pretentious, thought provoking without making the listener work too hard. It’s a testament to Foster’s skill and experience. The music video, directed by Jeff Rowles, is dark and gloomy. It’s a clear step in the moodier, darker direction Roseblood is aiming to take.
 
Roseblood will be playing In The Lot, Sunday August 26th with Twin Peaks, Dude York, No Kind of Rider, and the Black Tones.

Haley Heynderickx's Tiny Desk Performance

Here at the Deli, we love it when great local artists get the recognition they deserve. Local favorite Haley Heynderickx was not only just featured in Rolling Stone, but she also just got on NPR’s Tiny Desk! Heynderickx, known for rich vocals and a uniquely dark folksy style, has just returned to town after a summer on tour.

Her Tiny Desk performance is true to form. Heynderickx is endearing as always, tender both in attitude and in her music. At one point the band gives 5 seconds of “intimate eye contact” to the camera, so as to show the people back home that they love them. Well Haley, you're equally as loved and we’re glad to have you back.

Charlie Moses

If you’re in the mood for something to listen to while slow dancing in a darkly lit room, look no further than Charlie Moses. Many of her songs are romantic and gentle, as soft as a feather brushing across your cheek. They also contain some darker notes, lyrics that are playfully disquiet and toy with the listener’s sense of unease. Think late 1950’s film noir. However, the album also has some peppier, more pop oriented songs as well. The song “8-5” has a distinct indie-pop sound, similar to Mitski or Angel Olsen. Listening to it places you in a warm summer day, driving down the road with your windows down and the wind whipping your hair around.

Charlie Moses will be playing a benefit show this Wednesday, August 8th at the Turn Turn Turn, along with Half Shadow and Sunbaby. All proceeds will go to IRCO, Families Belong Together, and The Young Center LA
