A Heart is a Spade: Savoir Adore Debuts New Video



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)

Xeno & Oaklander unveil "Interface" from upcoming album 'Par Avion'

This summer, Xeno & Oaklander bring their minimal electronic sounds to Ghostly International with new album Par Avion, their first for the label, June 24th. The album's title is a reference to postcards — it translates as "by plane", and was used to mark airmail sent from exotic places. The songs are postcards of love for a cold age — shimmering moments from the present, romantic messages from the past, and love mementos for the future. Together, they make up an album of contrasts — the songs move from upbeat to downbeat, slow to fast, light to dark.

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

You'll have a cool opportunity to see them live at Union Square on April 22 during Earth Day celebrations.

Exclusive Premiere: Ladyhips – "What's That Racket"

After previously unveiling the video for “In the Ballroom,” Ladyhips is ready to release its next clip, “What’s That Racket” – and The Deli New England has its exclusive premiere. Both cuts are from the band’s upcoming Live at Farmtone EP, set for release on April 22. For the funky “Racket,” the band returns to the Connecticut farm where they shot their previous clip, and once again the result is cinematic beauty. Check out “What’s That Racket” below. – Jake Reed, @jakejreed

Joel Gion Premieres New Music Video

San Francisco based neo psych-revivalist and Bay Area based music legend, Joel Gion is beginning to gain momentum with his solo music project, Joel Gion & the Primary Colors. With a hand full of local shows under his belt, Gion continues to emerge with the premiere of his new music video, Overthrow. The video is a reflection of the washed and colorful track that highlights Joel's whispered shoegaze vocals and Ryan Van Kriedt's unique and haunting audial production style. Members of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Federale, Asteroid #4 and Dead Skeletons lend a hand to this sensuous track.

The video (created by Damien Taylor) is completely trippy and portrays a visual homage to psychedelic culture and rock and roll awesomeness. Look out for this track, which is set for release on 7" and download cards on April 22. Gion's new full length album is titled, Apple Bonkers and is set to emerge onto the scene this summer. -je
