Buzz Alert: Torres' video of "Skim" makes The Guardian's Best of 2017 List

Torres' musical path could be used as an ideal example of what should happen to a musician who dares to move from Nashville to NYC - something she did in 2015, soon after releasing her sophomore album Sprinter. Her 2017 follow up, Three Futures, reveals a more daring artist with an uber-edgy sound that makes abundant use of synths and guitar pedals. The tracks share a claustrophobic atmosphere that seems like an unavoidable by-product of the transition from the big spaces of Music City to the "coziness" of the Big Apple. The labels took notice (the album was out on legendary 4AD), the critics applauded (Three Futures is one of the top-ranked albums on Metacritic.com with a score of 79) and the fans multiplied. And more recently, the UK newspaper The Guardian included the video for Skin (streaming below) in its Best of 2017 list. Since the release, Torres has been gigging non-stop in the US, Canada and Europe.





Dirty Bird bring their orchestral folk to #WomenCrush at Rockwood 1/31

Dirty Bird's latest single, "Towers," will catch you off-guard.  "Towers" is a juicy, upbeat indie folk tune with a striking, purposeful arrangement and stellar vocal harmonies. Melodically, instrumentally, and vocally, this band is getting everything right. The recording is so delightful that I'm intrigued to hear them bring their music to life on the stage. You can catch them live as part of the #WomenCrush NYC showcase, an organization that provides opportunities for rising female artists in the music industry, at Rockwood Music Hall on January 31st. -Geena Kloeppel





New Music Video: "Lima Beans" - Secret Nudist Friends

Featured on their EP Susan, Secret Nudist Friends recently shared a video for the single, “Lima Beans”. Shot at Tralfamadore, the band invites one to step inside, sit down, and have a beverage. That, coupled with up-close performance footage, captures a hazy, garage-psych atmosphere. Secret Nudist Friends are slated on a billing tonight at Kung Fu Necktie that will include Gender Work, Kelsey Cork & The Swigs, and The Smirks. They will also be presenting their first official music video at Good How Are You #2, a local artist showcase being held next Thursday, January 18 at Tralfamadore.





A Deli Premiere: "Independence Day" by Forest Bees

Sheetal Singh knows what it’s like to fall apart and have to pick up the pieces again. After her previous band—early 2000s San Francisco indie darlings The Stratford 4—fell apart, she returned to school and even started her own family. Now, she’s returned to music in the form of a new project called Forest Bees—an indie electronica act with intensely feminist overtures. Today, The Deli has the privilege of premiering the opening track “Independence Day” (streaming below) off of the forthcoming self-titled debut EP. The track explores Singh’s experience as a wife and as a woman, which are themes that reoccur throughout the rest of the EP. The rest of the record will be released on January 25th at The Hemlock. - Lilly Milman 





Debut Night Bloom EP Available for Streaming

Night Bloom begin their new year right with the debut of Luv HZ. The EP is delicately groovy, an homage to lo-fi sensibilities and R&B emotionality. To put it plainly, Night Bloom is chill. The Philly-based duo can effortlessly evoke something akin to laidback SoCal whimsy; however, their music is excitingly fresh and entirely their own. Let the luv wash over you. - Amanda Ogea
