A Deli Premiere: single "Adieu" from NH-based People Like You

It’s been a little less than a year since The Deli New England last heard from People Like You, the eclectic and electric gypsy-folk-rockers hailing from Portsmouth, NH. And they haven’t wasted a second of that time. Their forthcoming third studio album, Dancing on the Dead, shows the band at their best—they’re tighter than ever before, and they haven’t given up on their rootsy experimental sound, either. People Like You is filling in the gap left by other, freak-folk greats—perhaps most specficially, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes. Of course, they don’t fit perfectly in the space left by the now-disbanded group, because the music of People Like You is entirely their own. There’s nothing derivative about it.

We’re happy to be premiering the single “Adieu” from Dancing on the Dead, which will be released on May 11th. The release of the album will kickstart a summer tour, beginning at Fury’s Publick House in Dover, NH. - Lilly Milman, photo by Lily Eye





NH Gypsy Rockers People Like You Release New Album, Play Fury's Publick House

 It's difficult to catalog New Hampshire's People Like You into any sort of genre classification without writing a dissertation on the subject. Suffice it to say they are a whirlwind of psychedelic gypsy alt-rock, that keeps in touch with their folk roots. Make sense? Good. The band's new album, People People, is a roller coaster ride, keeping you on the edge of your seat with each strum, squeeze, and pluck. Check them out at Fury's Publick House on 7/1 and help them celebrate the new release. -Brian Varneke





People Like You ready release of sophomore album

Buzzwords like "fresh" and "innovative" get thrown around all the time in music journalism. They are pretty cool sounding afterall. Rarely, though, does an artist and their music justify the usage or embody the spirits of those words. Boston's People Like You do.  The indie outfit's debut LP from two years ago flew under our radar, but now's the perfect time to discuss it since they are working on its follow-up and playing a ton of live shows. At the core of their sound is the contrast between the band's cerebral instrumental arrangements and the visceral vocals.  Each of their songs is a swirling mix of instruments and styles from classical glockenspiels,  jazz horns and persussion to indie-rock guitars. The isnstrumental parts are intriguing, inventive and could probably function as post-rock songs just by themselves. That would, however, take away singer Chris Lee's emo and spoken-word styled vocals, and that would suck. Lee's at times laconic, others verbose, but always emotional vocals crash head-first into the band's instrumental arrangemtns to create a sound that excites emotions and provokes introspective thought. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber





Elison Jackson to release new EP and play The Press Room on 7/16

On their latest EP Silver Sounds: Hallucinations,  Elison Jackson, a band split between Philly and New Haven, CT, added an extra layer to their already (very) psychedlic sound, by dropping a record that resembles a psychedlic experience in of itself. Each track on the EP is distinct in genre, thus providing a true "trip' through different kinds of music.  On "Ghost Fucker," they kick-off with a forebodingly minimalist psych-rock song, but then immediately shift to loud guitar-rock on "Thru the Trees." From there they go from folk-pop to psych pop moments, to finish off with a sludgy folk rock song entitled Wal-Mart. Elison Jackson recently released trippy visuals for "Ghost Fucker," and you can catch them at The Press Room with People Like You on July 16.  —Henry Solotaroff-Webber
