Seldomo brings eccentric folk tunes to Alphaville 02.03

In the past few years, the DIY scene (re)discovered roots music, and we are not mad about it (anymore). For Queens-based band Seldomo, Americana is a fun place to get a little weird. Their 2017 album Probably Cool pays homage to all the best country/Americana tropes, but with the off-kilter sensibilities of lo-fi and slacker rock. It's a bit reminiscent of Alex G’s Rocket, although Seldomo has a flavor all their own, bringing in the unexpected mandolins and accordions alongside the standby guitars. At Alphaville on February 3rd, the band will sing to you about strangers walking dogs at midnight and meeting past lovers by rivers, all with their own flair. If you are rediscovering roots music, like we are, you don’t want to miss out. - Sunny Betz


New Track: "All The Way Home" - Yours, Mookie

Yours, Mookie recently shared a series of singles. A stripped-down, bedroom-folk intimacy adorns “All The Way Home”. The warmth of twilight and a comfortable closeness creates a revealing perspective, aided by the heartfelt aspects of harmony and an apologetic, loving circumstance. It feels candidly vulnerable.

Rocky Bottom releases full-band LP "Mr. Nothing"

It feels like it's been a while since we featured an indie folk act here on The Deli Nashville, so here's Mr. Nothing, the first full-band effort from Rocky Bottom, the musical act backed by singer-songwriter Alex Hernandez. If the tracks on this disc sound fresh from Side B of The River, chalk it up to Hernandez's Jersey roots shining through the Southern folk affect in his voice. Songs like the knee-slapping foot-stomping "Stunt Man" appeared in a stripped-down form on Rocky Bottom's latest EP Dive Bars and Tip Jars, as did the song of the same name which reminds us of a souped-up "Piano Man". But on Mr. Nothing, they get rounded out from the help of Hernandez's bandmates and friends, all of whom bring a community folk sound straight to your eardrums. Check out Hernandez playing the title track from Mr. Nothing at Magnetic Sound below. - Will Sisskind
