Okay Kaya shares "Habitual Love" video, tours with Amen Dunes

Having just released her long-awaited debut album Both, Okay Kaya shows no sign of slowing down for the rest of the summer. The Norwegian, NYC based singer-songwriter has shared the music video for "Habitual Love", a slow jam which follows the album's theme of dual identity, trauma, depression, and love as a physical embodiment. Kaya took to the Rubber House retreat near New Paltz to film the video, in which she shows off her talent as a dancer and hides a secret love affair with a faceless, featureless mannequin from herself. The artistic clip matches the song's dark vibes, which Kaya will present live on her upcoming tour. Beginning in mid-August, Kaya will take to the Northwest and make her way back east; then in October, she'll fly overseas to play a few European shows before returning to Brooklyn for a homecoming show at Music Hall of Williamsburg. - Will Sisskind





Cape Francis, Hannah Sumner and Bonomo play The Revolution, #Vol. 29 on 07.28

National Sawdust’s monthly premiere of emerging local artists called The Revolution is set for its 29th iteration on Saturday, July 28 with a variety of new bands. The three local acts juxtapose each other in genre and songwriting, yet their sounds are engaging in their own distinctive way. Bonomo’s laid-back, silky jazz compositions are wonderfully playful and find grooves that slither around without becoming monotonous, and his somewhat subtle music contrasts his two contemporaries. Cape Francis brings subdued indie folk that transforms murmuring guitars into a roar of organic energy, whereas Hannah Sumner’s ethereal walls of synth pop wrestle with her restrained yet impassioned voice in a combination of natural and synthetic energies. These artists offer wildly different appeals and styles, doubling down on The Revolution’s commitment to diversity in sonic palettes. The show begins at 10 p.m. and you can listen to The Deli’s playlist featuring these acts below. -Tucker Pennington





Idgy Dean plays Baza Party on July 26th

Idgy Dean will bring her spirited performance to BAZA Studios on July 26. Combining indie rock, DIY, and psych qualities, songs like “Inauguration” and “Indian Squirrel Dance” possess a very edgy, rough, early 2000's indie rock vibe with an added primal edge introduced by tribal sounding tom toms, performed and sampled live, on stage, by this multi-talented and multi-tasking solo artist. - Pearse Devlin





New Track: "Only One" - Empath

Coming in hot on the heel’s of Empath’s album, Liberating Guilt and Fear, is their new 7” single, titled Environments. Styled in the vein of Irv Teibel’s Environments field recordings from the 1960s and 70s, Empath’s latest track softens the edges of their cleverly raucous repertoire. Each recording on the 7” is meant to represent wind or water; "Only One" takes on the latter, beginning in familiar, playfully punk territory, before opening up into blissful expanses of space as the song develops. The track's creation of and care for space parallels the mission of their label, Get Better Records, which provides a safe space for Philly’s queer community, becoming an important bastion for underrepresented creatives by giving an early platform to diverse bands such as HIRS, Thin Lips, and Cayetana.

Moon Daze release dreamy self-titled debut EP & play The UPTOWN (8.3)

The debut self-titled EP by the San Francisco-based quartet Moon Daze is hot and cold, dousing lyrics like “It’s okay, I didn’t love you anyway,” (from lead single “Leather Jacket”) in the syrupy sweet vocals of Florie Maschmeyer and Carissa Quiambao. The EP retains the surf sensibilities of the Bay Area, as seen in the bouncy “Disco,” but elevates them to a hypnotic dream-like state. Listen to the EP in full below, and see Moon Daze play live on August 3 at The UPTOWN in Oakland. - Lilly Milman, photo by Domini Dragoone
