Songwriter Shlomo Franklin releases new EP on 05.16 at Rockwood Stage 2

Indie-folk singer-songwriter Shlomo Franklin releases his new EP "Don't Love Anybody" on May 16th at Rockwood's Stage 2. Franklin, one of the most active members of the NYC local music scene, tapped once again into his influences of Neil Young and Johnny Cash to produce the record's title track. Released earlier this April, the song highlights Franklin's rugged vocals and acoustic guitar, with other instruments -- keys, bass, strings, drums -- joining in as the desperation in Franklin's voice swells throughout the song. As a love song filled with pining, Franklin makes sure to get the instrumentation and deliver the emotion just right, and he does, making such a delivery of raw fervor and honesty seem easy. Listen to "Don't Love Anybody" below, and head to Rockwood on May 16th to pick up a copy of Franklin's full EP. - Will Sisskind





SF's The Fixins Release Debut EP + play The Plough and Stars (5.4.)

The debut EP Rain or Shine by the San Francisco-based jam rock quartet The Fixins proves that they are not just the Bay Area’s fair-weathered friends—they’re here to stay. After playing countless live shows, they’ve finally laid down a recording. Their four-track EP is Americana influenced, with the occasional bluesy swell. It’s smooth and intricate, riffing off classic jam inspirations to create an extremely energetic record. Quite frankly, it’s something you and your dad can listen to together—easily. The release of their EP is kicking off a long string of summer shows for The Fixins, starting with a show at Peri’s Silver Dollar Bar in Fairfax on the 3rd. They will also be at San Francisco’s own The Plough and Stars the next day. - Lilly Milman

Frog brings fuzzy folk rock to Caffeine Underground 04.28

There’s a twangy, almost drawling tone to Dan Bateman’s voice when he sings in Frog. Bateman and bandmate Tom White have a folky hue to their music, as if it came from the American heartland rather than the densely populated streets of New York where the two reside. On paper though, that influence can be a little tricky to point out. Frog plays almost fuzzy indie rock with dashes of keyboard chords and glockenspiel melodies filling in the warm tingle of guitar. Still, the duo’s tender dynamics capture the personal feel of folk music and suit the band to intimate performances. You can see Frog live on April 28th at Caffeine Underground, a fittingly cozy setting for the group, alongside Demure and solo performances from Told Slant and Bedbug. – Cameron Carr

A Deli Premiere: Geena Kaye releases "In March" single, plays Gold Sounds 04.29

Singer-songwriter Geena Kaye is about to release her first single, called "In March," from her upcoming EP, and we have a premiere for you. The track's title reflects its tone, which evokes images of rainy days in early spring, and that seasonal, impatient and somewhat frustrated desire for the warmer days ahead.  Kaye's soft voice wavering above orchestral arrangements cuts deep with emotion; the thickness of the delivery of her lyrics gives off the sense that everything around her is empty, waiting to become whole again. Kaye, who was raised in Germany listening to everything from Pink Floyd to Carole King, says that in writing the song, she imagined what Joni Mitchell would sound like if she was starting out today.

"In March" shows great promise from Kaye, who'll play Gold Sounds on April 29th. Take a listen to The Deli's premiere of "In March" below. - Will Sisskind
