Vagabon brings her ethereal alt folk to Baby's All Right 2/24

Brooklyn-based Vagabon's vocals are sometimes wistful, sometimes haunting, but always seem to have a soft ethereal quality to them. An indie rock project spearheaded by Laetita Tamko, Vagabon navigates the spaces between dulcet tones and crunchy feedback effortlessly. While every track on her Persian Garden EP is worth spending time with, "Cold Apartment Floors" is a distinct stand-out--featuring the juxtaposition of thick, noisy guitars, against Tamko's soft vocals; resonating like thunder and rain. You can check her out at Baby's All Right with Mal Devisa and Jelani Sei 2/24, and in the meantime, be sure to stream her music below. - Olivia Sisinni

Mal Devisa to wrap up northeastern tour in May

It’s hard to listen to Mal Devisa without falling at least a little bit in love. Devisa (aka Deja Carr) deconstructs modern music to its core. Instead of flashy instrumentals and high-cost production, she concentrates on simplifying the music, letting her stunning, soft vocals do the work.  With lo-fi recording, simple bass and guitar lines and dashes of garage-sounding drum tracks, Mal Devisa says she “makes music with whatever she can find.” She's truly an innovator.

Nearly two months after the release of the For Daisy with Honey EP and following a month-long northeastern tour with Wydyde, Carr gears up for her final two shows before taking a break. Catch her at Arts at the Armory in Somerville, MA, on April 21 and at the Montague Bookmill in Montague, MA, on May 9. – Jake Dmochowski


Who’da Funk It singer breaks out on her own

At just 17, Deja Carr has made a name for herself in the Western Massachusetts music scene as the frontwoman of Who’da Funk It. With the band taking somewhat of a breather after a successful 2013, Carr has taken on another ambitious project: her own solo work under the name Mal Devisa. After playing several smaller local shows, Carr will bring her signature stage presence and impressive pipes to the Parlor Room in Northampton on December 3, opening for Lady Lamb the Beekeeper. Look for her own creations plus possible covers of "Honey Honey" by Feist and Beyoncé's "Deja Vu." – Jake Reed
