Úlfur's New LP "Arborescence" Out October 2017

Úlfur, the post-rock project of Úlfur Hansson, readily reflects the artist's native Iceland. At times, his songs are as desolate and expansive as the country's central highlands, a trait shared in the music of some of his fellow Icelanders, like Sigur Rós or Ólöf Arnalds.

However, Úlfur's blend of electronic and acoustic instruments (some of which are homemade like his SEGULHARPA, an electromagnetic harp) never feels alienatingly robotic or inhuman. Úlfur's music is a nuanced reflection of the natural world. Since his move to NYC, his music has exchanged its wilderness sensibility for dreamier, folk-like soundscapes. Make sure to check out Úlfur's new single "Fovea" from his upcoming album Arborescence, available next month. --Amanda Ogea

Alt folk artist Cape Francis celebrates debut release at Mercury on 09.22

Cape Francis is the solo-project of Kevin Olken Henthorn and features music that neatly fits into a self-made nexus of indie folk/rock/pop and “post” iterations of each. Cape Francis is able to oscillate between slow, melancholic elegies for what is lost (“Iditarod”) and heart-felt indie anthems (“5 in the Morning”). Regardless of presentation, Cape Francis skillfully evokes Northeastern wistful angst. His debut album “Falling into Pieces” is out September 22nd, and NYC’s Mercury Lounge will be hosting the release show on September 29th. - Amanda Ogea

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best rootsy songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





Shilpa Ray celebrates LP release show at Pianos 09.20 & 09.21

Within the The Deli's archives we commended Shilpa Ray several times -- lauding her noir music, stubborn-yet-honest lyrics, and unapologetic delivery -- but her newest work is doing more than that. Though her new September LP isn't out yet, she gives us a glimpse of what's to come with new single, “EMT Police and the Fire Department”. This song is one of a dystopian Lower East Side, so abject it requires the EMT, police, and the fire department to be called. "The air was so thick, you cut it with a knife, and the crowds were so thick, it would make you wanna cut them with a knife" she recants through spoken word over what resembles a sound check. The story’s setting degrades as the song shapes together, and she repeats the title over a building drumbeat, ultimately exploding unlike anything we’ve seen from her -- her jarring lyricism taking on the shape of a new beast delivered through ferocious yelps. This is as unforgiving as Ray has ever gotten. Door Girl, the upcoming LP, is inspired by her time working at Pianos; it’s only fitting her album release will be celebrated there two nights in a row, this coming September 20th and 21st. - Pearse Devlin

New Track: "John Wilkes Booth" - TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb

It's been over three years since we've had a new album from TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb. Well, this evening at Johnny Brenda's, you'll have a chance to cop his new EP Dancing Out the Door at the band's vinyl release celebration with Lightninging and Haunted Homes. The album officially drops on October 13 via Good Behavior Records, but you can take a listen to its raucous, piano-boogie lead single, "John Wilkes Booth," which is also featured on the label's Hurricane Relief compilation. All proceeds will be going to the victims of Harvey and Irma.
