On Thursday, May 16 the Ivy Room will host an evening full of lovely music, all from queer artists. Performing will be Rob Jamner, indie rock storyteller and poet, who will be releasing his EP Holding Stones and playing short films from independent filmmakers Jesse Israel, Sair Goetz, Marica Petrey, Jared Swanson, and Andy Strong. Americana guitarist and songwriter Briget Boyle will be playing some sweet tunes from her new album The Next Line.

The Deli LA Premieres: Karmic bring the house down on "X Marks the Spot"

Karmic invites listeners to let go and live in the moment on "X Marks the Spot." The latest electro-pop bash by the six piece—led by duo Kylee Katch and Laura Baruch—has an energetic bounce that sounds tailor-made to end an encore on a high note. They intersperse jubilant, soulful vocals over prominent synth stabs, expressing their simple lyrical sentiments with a playful eye-wink. Make that two for two for Karmic after their equally infectious "Higher Self," a confident introduction that shows their impeccable flair for lush, dance-oriented pop.

"X Marks the Spot" is the second single off of Karmic's forthcoming EP, due out in late May. 


Jordan Reyes "Close"

Jordan Reyes has released the first single, “Quicksand”, from his forthcoming album, Close. The album is set to be released via his label American Dream in June 14th and will be available in vinyl with a very cool limited JJ Cormer print.

This is music that Reyes has made on the modular synthesizer and, from the sound of “Quicksand”, it is beautiful, haunting, and introspective.


New Track: "Observatories" - Jeff Zeigler & Dash Lewis

“Observatories” is the latest collaboration between Jeff Zeigler (Valley Exit, Inlets, Arc in Round) & Dash Lewis (Gardener). Synth-fueled atmospherics envelope as one explores a pensive, pacifying state. The rhythmic, percussive motion steadies as the soft, bright touches of keys accent. Take it all in - just a little somethin' to help ease ya into your day. You can also find them opening for Meg Baird & Mary Lattimore this Monday, April 29 at Johnny Brenda's.
