Fire is Motion bring their acoustic folk-pop to Elsewhere on 04.27

Union Jersey group Fire is Motion’s 2017 EP Still, I Try, put their dream pop and folk combination on full display and gives you plenty of reasons to check them out. The group recently toured the Midwest and is now back in the Tri-State Area prepping for shows in Brooklyn, the first of which will be at Elsewhere on April 27. The group appears to be growing both in recognition and band members as they have added a fifth guitarist in Shannon Moore (for a few shows for now it seems.) The music is seamless in its delivery of rich acoustic arrangements, and emotive vocal crescendos which, coupled with several minor chords help create a style that's at once moody and light. Fire is Motion is keeping their story going, one performance and band member at a time. - Rene Cobar





Ticket Giveaway: of Montreal & Yip Deceiver at Union Transfer This Sunday

This Sunday, April 14, the ever-evolving of Montreal will be bringing White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood to the stage of Union Transfer. Kevin Barnes's latest release is sonically influenced by 80s-style "extended dance remixes," while taking lyrical refuge from the varied works of Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, Chris Kraus, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Mark E. Smith, and Malcolm X. Barnes will also be joined on the billing by fellow Athens tourmates/synthpop trio Yip Deceiver. To enter for a chance to win a pair of tix, just send an email to thedelimagazinephiladelphia@gmail.com with the subject line "Simulated Reality". Please also include your cell number in the body of the message (in case of an emergency). Good luck!





Molly Tuttle releases new LP "When You're Ready" on heels of international tour

Singer-songwriter Molly Tuttle cleaned up the awards last year, winning the Guitar Player of the Year prize from the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Americana Music Association. Now, Tuttle has released her debut album, When You're Ready, a showcase of her flatpicking style and personal lyricism which presents in packaged form the music that has helped to sell out shows in both the US and the UK. Tuttle released When You're Ready just before a grand hometown show at The Basement East; days after the release, she played shows at the Savannah Music Festival and here in Nashville at the Grand Ole Opry. Tuttle takes to the sky to perform shows in the UK throughout April; she'll return to the States to play shows and festivals throughout the spring. Take a listen to When You're Ready below. - Will Sisskind

Dirty Bird celebrate new single "Once" with show at Mercury Lounge 04.21

Folk-rock collective Dirty Bird has a new, lovely single out called “Once,” and they are celebrating it in style April 21 at the Mercury Lounge. The single contains strong male-female harmonies, a catchy lead melody and the band's signature creative approach to Americana. The group seems to have improved the formula from their 2018 record Still To Be Ours, pushing their experimentation farther without betraying their own sound. This is a band that deserves to be seen live and will be supported by fellow folk-rock group Dead Gowns from Portland, Maine. Check out Dirty Bird's new single below. - Rene Cobar





Weekend Warrior, April 5 - 7

A soothing strangeness is created by experimental rockers Cerulean Blue.  At any given musical moment, the band appears to ride a chilled-out, melodic trajectory. And with a flip of a switch per se, a sort of aggression-releasing chaos ensues, or at least, the potential lies in wait. Those polarizing conditions keep listeners in a state of high alert. Tonight at the House of Yarga, Cerulean Blue will be sharing the billing with the floating-amid-the-clouds meets the jarring,  adrenaline-laced thunderclap of Sun Organ, as well as MA’AM.
