The Deli LA Artist to Watch: Gibberish

It’d be facile to give some literal meaning to Gibberish considering there’s really no limit to their scope of imagination. The experimental synth pop duo of Derek and Lorie Bromley put forth spiraling streaks of lucid textures on their latest track “RudeDude”, in which they fuse together a wash of vocal harmonies alongside a weaving tapestry of layered sounds. It’s music to get lost in, and it can certainly leave you bewildered, as it is truly a practice in escapism. But this isn’t just indulgent nonsense; if anything, they guide you into a wondrous, unexplored realm that’s never too far removed from reality.

DAISY EYE - BRAND NEW MUSIC FROM TORONTO

Sit back, relax and enjoy this brand new music comin' out of Toronto. Daisy Eye is bringing us some laid back shoegaze tunes that touches on some 90's grunge rock vibes. They have released one track "Exoexistence". The beginning makes you want to sit back and ponder life. It has some nice and gentle guitar licks along with lazy vocals to set the mood. Don't get too comfortable though...they pick 'er up near the end and grunge out for a while. I'm glad I came across this band as I'm sure not many people have yet so I'm glad I can spread the word. Keep your eyes and ears open for more "daisy-gaze" tunes coming from Daisy Eye soon. - Kris Gies

Joan as a Police Woman, Okay Kaya and Kelsey Lu play at The Hum on Sunday with many other NYC female artists

We've been big fans of Brooklyn based Norvwegian songwriter Okay Kaya since we saw her first video for single 'Damn Gravity,' released in the spring of 2015. We've been missing her live a couple of times (she cancelled a CMJ show on us in 2015, and we didn't cath her at SXSW in 2016, so we won't miss the oportunity to see her at The Deli's sponsored appointment with The Hum, this Sunday April 24th at Greeinpoint's Manhattan Inn, when she will be playing a semi-improvisational set with Aerial East and Kelsey Lu. We are also happy to report that she has released some new material earlier this year, which showcases a welcome orchestral development of her uber-sparse style - check out single Keep On Pushin', streaming below.

Kelsey Lu (pictured) is a NYC based artist we've never covered before that is also worthy of attention. Born in Charlotte, NC, this classically trained cellist plays with Solange among others, although her own music flirts with ambient and experimental tendencies.

At The Hum this Sunday you'll also be able to see  Joan Wasser of Joan As Police Woman (who needs no presentation) in a set with drummer Jordyn Blakely (of Stove) and Noga Shefi of Zula, who will also share the stage with Taiwanese vibraphonist Yuhan Su in a separate set. 

This is the last appointment with The Hum, a series The Deli has been sponsoring for the second year in a row - you can read about past showcase previews here.





New Music Video: "I Can't Live Without Your Love" - A Sunny Day in Glasgow

A creepy, hostile scenario engulfs the group in A Sunny Day in Glasgow’s new video for “I Can’t Live Without Your Love”. The band is taken individually off the streets under duress, and forced to perform by a masked man. The identity of the unknown assailant is eventually revealed toward the conclusion.

New Track: "Sweet Wife Life" - Son Step

Featured on their forthcoming full-length album Natural Majique, Son Step's new single “Sweet Wife Life” offers a cozy melodic warmth, as keys and percussion cruise, roll and lift the soft, harmonious vocals, maintaining a rhythmic course with an experimental-pop stretch. With the album due out on May 27, the band is already set to head out on a tour. However, you'll be able to find them in Philly this Friday, April 22 at Magic Gardens.
