A Heart is a Spade: Sky Ferreira Debuts New Video
A Heart is a Spade: Real Estate Visits WFUV



December 2014
Frankie Cosmos
"Zentropy
"
mp3

If you like unassuming, short and charming pop songs about high school, firemen and buses, look no further than 19 year old singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos. In her just released first full-length 'Zentropy,' (though she's put out at least 40 other digital records on Bandcamp over the years - no joke!) Greta Kline reveals much of her inner child, whether singing about what her dad is up to or how birthdays don't mean you're getting older. But 'Zentropy' equally exposes a young lady just beginning to wrestle with explorations of love and life anxieties. It's a fascinating journey just begun, and songs like "Birthday" (streaming below), showcase a melodic talent that's not afraid to experiment with tempo changes and assorted influences, without losing her signature, intimate style. 
If Frankie Cosmos manages to keep half these levels of prolificity in her 20s, we can definitely expect a bunch of hits from her. Because great music - like everything else - is all about trying hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

Congratulations to The Wooly Mamas, Our New Artist of the Month!

Congratulations to The Wooly Mamas, The Deli Nashville's newest Artist of the Month.  The band may have caught your ear once or twice around town, as they have been sharing bills with quite a few other Nashville sluggers: The Daily Howl, Blackfoot Gypsies, and That's My Kid, to name a few.  The Wooly Mamas got their start as a cover band, and built their catalog of originals as the trio outgrew their sets of Tom Waits, Hank Williams and Wilco tunes and sought an outlet for their creativity while maintaining their respect for the classics.  It was a very organic, and really, most optimal outcome for a story that starts with 'three dudes in a cover band-.' Whether you're a long-term, devoted fan that threw down a vote on Day 1, or this is the first time that you've heard of the trio, one thing has been made clear: they rock hard enough to win this month's poll.  Listen to "Make Sure," one of the two songs they released this past December, then buy them a beer at fooBar on April 26th for being winners. -Terra James-Jura

Beautiful Small Machine premieres 'The DJ Stayed Home' from upcoming LP

Fans of live music everywhere: Beautiful Small Machines have just written your anthem. There's something so triumphant about the electro-twang group's new single 'The DJ Stayed Home,' you'll find yourself ecstatic by the end of the tune, no matter what's going on in this troubled DJ's life. it's this kind of excitement that the band's always been able to get across pretty easily in their tracks, from the bleep-blopping synth joys of debut record 'The Robots In Love,' to their moving cover of 'Paper Planes.' It's an unapologetic warmth and joyeux de vivre that collaborators Dan DiLego and Bree Sharp always seem to find in the keys and frets of their synths and strings.

Taken from the upcoming full-length of the same name, 'The DJ Stayed Home' single is exactly what you need after finally allowing yourself to venture outside again after this winter. Take a listen below and check out their website as the band announces new dates soon. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

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

NYC Band on the rise: Relations lands Pianos May residency

Brooklyn band Relations (not to be confused with pejorative-in-name-only Gross Relations, also from the same borough), released their debut full length album "Songbirds" with a show at Shea Stadium on April 4. The booking agents at Pianos' must have liked it, since they booked the band for a 3 date May residency starting on the the 7th. Our favorite track "Believers" - streaming below - shows a band equally inspired by the edgier sound of the 80s (think Echo & the Bunnymen's "Heaven Up Here"), and the expressionist guitar sounds of shoegazer bands, with synth pop elements like arpeggiator flourishes thrown in to make things texturally even more appealing. Check out also this video for single "Goodbyes," also featured in the new record.

Video: Tapioca & the Flea "Take It Slow"

Tapioca & the Flea are an electro-pop quartet that meshes chromatic synths into their bracing, hand-waving choruses. They've just released a video for the track "Take It Slow", which features the band performing in the midst of a bitter quarrel between a couple, as it reminds us of their most brutal and compassionate moments through abrupt juxtaposed images. The track, which was produced by Crystal Castles' Ethan Kath, will appear on one side of a limited edition split 7" that will be available on Record Store Day. And speaking of which, catch their in-store set at Amoeba Music this Saturday at 6 pm.
