Oginalii play The Basement 04.05 to release new LP "Cause and Affection"

If it seems like it's been a while since you heard from Oginalii, you might want to clean out your ears. They've stormed across the Rust Belt over the past few months playing shows in support of their upcoming album Cause and Affection. To mark the release, they'll play The Basement on April 5th, which is when the album will drop wherever you get your music. Back in November, The Deli wrote about "Forgotten Kindness", a single from the album which highlighted the intense sound that main shredder Emma Hoeflinger crafted to complement the call to empathy in her lyrics. Just last month, the band released "Light As A Feather", a darker track about managing and struggling to cope with anxiety in a healthy way. Take a listen to "Light As A Feather" below, and catch Oginalii and Cause and Affection at The Basement on April 5th. - Will Sisskind

The Smoking Flowers come home to The 5 Spot on 04.13

The old adage goes: Couples who rock together stay together. And The Smoking Flowers, made up of Kim and Scott Collins, have rocked together in love and in music for two decades. Anyone close to Nashville's underground scene knows the Collins' rootsy music, and probably knows the recent story of Kim's battle and triumph over breast cancer. Her holistic recovery, along with a tour with Scott across the country in their Volvo 240 station wagon, led to two albums: 2018's rousing release Let's Die Together, and the upcoming juxtaposing acoustic album Snowball Out Of Hell. After a few years of bouncing from state to state, the Smoking Flowers are coming home to Nashville to play a set at The 5 Spot on April 13. It will be a celebration of Kim's good health, of the Smoking Flowers' new tunes, and of the love the Collinses share for music, for life, and for each other. Check out the music video for "Here 4 U Now" from Let's Die Together below. - Will Sisskind





Synthpop unplugs: Basic Printer & Kytoon play Bowery Vault 04.06

If you have any familiarity with the Nashville synth scene whatsoever, you may have seen a show including either Kytoon or Basic Printer. You know that they pepper their masterful tracks with a secret blend of synthesizer magic. And you know that if you stripped away their electronics and handed each of them an acoustic guitar, they could still wow you with songwriting wizardry. You can see and hear this for yourself when Kytoon and Basic Printer play The Bowery Vault on April 6th in an event called Synthpop Unplugged. The show begins at 5:00; come early and prepare yourself for an electrifying evening of music sans any electric instruments. Below, take a listen to each of the artists' latest releases: Basic Printer's "Good Weird" from the album of the same name, and Kytoon's latest single "Save My Breath". - Will Sisskind

LUTHI releases funky twin-single "Episode One" on 03.29

LUTHI likes to call their music "Cumberland funk", but "boogie circus" will work in a pinch. The seven-piece band provides a sound in which you'll find both terms equally accurate. On their release Episode One -- the first in a series of twin-singles to come out in 2019 -- LUTHI brings two new songs full of their ability to get you in the mood to dance wherever you listen. The premiere new track on the single, "Sleepwalkin", has a beat and horns which would wake the dead, and the studio version of the live staple "Out Of This World" pushes all of the energy of the band's stage antics through your headphones. Episode One drops after a productive past year, during which LUTHI performed over 80 shows, released their debut full-length album Stranger, and played a handful of shows at SXSW 2019. Watch the band perform "Sleepwalkin" below. - Will Sisskind

Anana Kaye releases "Blueberry Fireworks" video; plays The Crying Wolf 04.23

If I told you, "Hey, Anana Kaye's "Blueberry Fireworks" sounds a lot like a lost Kate Bush track," you'd say, "You always say that a female artist with an idiosyncratic voice and a slow art rock feel sounds like Kate Bush." But Kaye, along with musical conspirator Irakli Gabriel, mark Bush as an influence, along with other soulful artists of the past such as Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and Nick Cave. "Blueberry Fireworks" and its music video touch on subjects of alienation and isolation, along with a futile search for identity, with mannequins and fruit involved in the mix. Kaye's second album Detour will drop later this year, and she and Gabriel will play The Crying Wolf on April 23rd. Take a look at the music video for "Blueberry Fireworks" below. - Will Sisskind
