Frog brings fuzzy folk rock to Caffeine Underground 04.28

There’s a twangy, almost drawling tone to Dan Bateman’s voice when he sings in Frog. Bateman and bandmate Tom White have a folky hue to their music, as if it came from the American heartland rather than the densely populated streets of New York where the two reside. On paper though, that influence can be a little tricky to point out. Frog plays almost fuzzy indie rock with dashes of keyboard chords and glockenspiel melodies filling in the warm tingle of guitar. Still, the duo’s tender dynamics capture the personal feel of folk music and suit the band to intimate performances. You can see Frog live on April 28th at Caffeine Underground, a fittingly cozy setting for the group, alongside Demure and solo performances from Told Slant and Bedbug. – Cameron Carr

A Deli Premiere: Geena Kaye releases "In March" single, plays Gold Sounds 04.29

Singer-songwriter Geena Kaye is about to release her first single, called "In March," from her upcoming EP, and we have a premiere for you. The track's title reflects its tone, which evokes images of rainy days in early spring, and that seasonal, impatient and somewhat frustrated desire for the warmer days ahead.  Kaye's soft voice wavering above orchestral arrangements cuts deep with emotion; the thickness of the delivery of her lyrics gives off the sense that everything around her is empty, waiting to become whole again. Kaye, who was raised in Germany listening to everything from Pink Floyd to Carole King, says that in writing the song, she imagined what Joni Mitchell would sound like if she was starting out today.

"In March" shows great promise from Kaye, who'll play Gold Sounds on April 29th. Take a listen to The Deli's premiere of "In March" below. - Will Sisskind





New Track: "Ain't Life Grand" - A.M. Mills

Flurries of delicate guitar marry a matriculating, warm bass and sandy percussion in A.M. Mills latest single, "Ain't Life Grand". There’s a worn aesthetic and a sly sense of humor on display. It feels nostalgic - a comfortable melancholy that we're all invited to join in on. You can find the former Blood Feathers co-frontman crooning his heart out this evening at Johnny Brenda's, with The Cactus Blossoms and Frankie Lee. (Photo by Serge Levin)





New Track: "Going To My Brother’s House" - Maxwell Stern

Perusing unfamiliar territory, “Going To My Brother’s House,” the latest single from Maxwell Stern (of Signals Midwest), glides in a roundabout, acoustic-folk stroll. Along the song’s evolution, it traveled the globe from Philly to Pittsburgh, to Australia, to Chicago, where it was augmented by Mother Evergreen to become what we hear now. There’s an unassuming nature as the tune guides you down a path. Picking up additional instrumental pieces along the way fully fleshes out its details, as the catchy, lyrical string tongue-ties. There’s a familiarity in realizing when you're out of your comfort zone and the aspects that you notice in those circumstances. You can find Stern opening things up at Kung Fu Necktie on Friday, April 27, as part of a billing that also includes Shannen Moser, Port Arthur, and Friends of the Bog.
