The Dove & The Wolf





New Video: "Linger" (Live - The Cranberries Cover) - The Dove Jeans & Sad Shamir

Las Vegas tranplant Shamir performed in his new hometown of Philly last week at SoFAR Sounds & Amnesty International's worldwide concert series, which benefitted Give a Home, an Amnesty project dedicated to raising money and awareness for the world's refugees. He also teamed up with his new neighbors Sad13, The Dove & The Wolf, and Queen of Jeans, as well as video production crew Out Of Town Films, to record a cover The Cranberries' "Linger" at the Bok Building in South Philly. Dubbed The Dove Jeans & Sad Shamir, you can now check out their live performance video below. You can also catch The Dove & The Wolf and Queen of Jeans, along with Girlpool, at Underground Arts on Thursday, October 12, as part of Red Bull Sound Select's "3 Days in Philly" Festival.

Weekend Warrior, July 28 - 30

Over the next three days, the musical fulcrum will largely focus on XPoNential Music Fest. A balanced assemblage of established and emerging talent from near and far settle onto the waterfront. Unfortunately, inclement weather may wash over Hurry’s set. However, Friday still has plenty on its tab – the encompassing reverberating power/ease of Angel Olsen coupled with the emotionally-exposed, energy-expelling rock of Hop Along and the stellar storytelling of Conor Oberst and Wilco. Saturday will culminate with local stalwart Amos Lee digging in with Preservation Hall Jazz Band. However, the meditative reverie of The Dove & The Wolf usher in the day, while Strand of Oaks roots itself in earnest, endearing narratives that blossom and flourish, gathering anthemic reach. On Sunday, the genre-melding hip-hop collective of Hardwork Movement and the Americana trio of No Good Sister help shape the day, reinforced by the bright Americana of Hurray For The Riff Raff and the rugged alt-country of Drive By Truckers. – Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "You're Silver" - Nightlands

Nightlands, a.k.a. Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs), recently released a new album, I Can Feel the Night Around Me, via Western Vinyl. Cruising through the streets with a behind-the-wheel and then an overhead, coastal viewpoint, the video for “You’re Silver," which was co-directed by Daniel Fox and Matthew Marchlewski, captures the smooth intensity of the surrounding environment. Soothing, soulful vocals layer as the gentle, gliding groove coasts those harmonies into gear. Nightlands will headline a bill on Saturday, May 27 at Johnny Brenda's, and will be supported by The Dove & The Wolf and The Building. 





New Track: "Motion Sickness" - The Dove & The Wolf

Paloma Gil and Lou Hayat's blissful harmonies are on display with the languid, slow burn of The Dove & The Wolf's latest single, "Motion Sickness". It's one of the two new additions to the band's EP I Don't Know What To Feel, which is being reissued on March 24 via Fat Possum. The duo is currently down at SXSW, where the ladies will be performing this afternoon at Hotel San Jose and Saturday evening at Madewell. They'll also be reconnecting with Jens Lekman soon after for the European leg of their tour.





The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Artists: FINAL RESULTS

Dear Deli Readers,
 
We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging Philly Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!
 
The Deli Philly Jurors:
Justin Berger (Deathwaltz), Dan Bisogno (Choice Tasters Selectors), Jeff Blinder (Spazz Presents), Gabrielle Bonghi (Philly.com), Kate Bracaglia (Freelance), Eric Bresler (PhilaMOCA), Jessica Craft (Rock To The Future), Katie Duggan (Underground Arts/Bonfire Shows), Shana Hartzel (Swell Tone/Y-Not Radio), Kevin Horn (AEG), Colin Kerrigan (Out Of Town Films), Dave Kiss (Kung Fu Necktie/Flash Mob Productions), Josh T. Landow (Y-Not Radio), Carolyn Lederach (Sofar Sounds Philly), Barrett Lindgren (Johnny Brenda’s/Independent Promoter), Jesse Lundy (Point Entertainment), Gordon Mays (MilkBoy Philly/Bonfire Shows), Jeff Meyers (Boot & Saddle), George Miller (JUMP Philly), Taylor Morganti (The Foundry/Live Nation), Mark Schoneveld (YVYNYL), Jon Solomon (WPRB), Q.D.

And now, without further ado, CONGRATS to…
 
 
 
Mannequin Pussy’s Marisa Dabice, Thanasi Paul, Kaleen Reading, and Colins “Bear” Regisford had a whirlwind of a year in 2016. The band toured extensively throughout the U.S. in support of their critically acclaimed album Romantic, which was released back in October via Tiny Engines Records. Major media outlets such as NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and Stereogum to name a few have all helped to spread the word, expressing praise for Dabice’s explosive serenity in her songcraft. Mannequin Pussy’s songs of hope, patience, and love have resonated with a wide range of listeners, which has only exponentially grown over the last few years. The beginning of 2017 has already seen the group touring with Joyce Manor and AJJ, and the band has also announced multiple overseas festival appearances in the year to come so don’t expect to see the gang performing anywhere and everywhere in town like you used to, so take advantage of their appearance this Saturday, March 11 at PhilaMOCA, when they support another badass Philly band, Pissed Jeans, at the second of their two sold-out record release shows.

2. Louie Louie (11.005)
 
 
The cliché suggests that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; that is especially true when applied to a band. The quartet of Louie Louie initially caught our attention because of Emily Robb’s proven track record in bands such as Lantern and Myrrias. And with our ears on alert, the group’s initial single, “Out In The Streets”/“Miles Around,” served as an ideal introduction to their smooth/grit-juxtaposing sound. Louie Louie cast a wave of nostalgia, harkening back to classic girl groups, injecting an assertive, take-the-lead approach with a tenacious, surf-psych gear. Last month, the femme fatales released their debut full-length album, Friend Of A Stranger, via Philly imprint Born Losers Records, and the promise of those initial songs have come to fruition in a polished but potent collection.

 
 
 
The Dove & The Wolf’s Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard made their mark on the Philly music scene in 2016. The Parisian transplants expanded their line-up into a full band, with the addition of multi-instrumentalist Craig Hendrix (Auctioneer, Mammal of Paradise) and Andy Black (Nicos Gun, Dangerous Ponies), building on their rich harmonic foundations, while sharing bills with notable acts such as The Districts, Quilt, and Japanese Breakfast. Their EP I Don't Know What To Feel, a collection of contemplative and chillingly alluring tracks, was written in part as a response to the terrorist attacks in Paris at the end of 2015. The group was eventually picked up by Fat Possum Records, who will be releasing the album on limited-edition color vinyl later this month. (Photo by Colin Kerrigan)
