Show Alert: Ben Cameron at the Stone Fox Tonight 5.22

Tonight Ben Cameron is among the lineup at The Stone Fox, opening for Swear and Shake and Brave Baby. He describes himself as “yacht rock meets folk rock,” which is something we might quickly pass along to our aunts back in the midwest suburbs, if it weren’t for this track, “I Believe.” The Deli Nashville, as it turns out, might have a secret affinity for white guys singing gospel with conviction. Feel free to compare and contrast this track with older material like “Eloise,” and if his versatility appeals to you, head down to the Stone Fox tonight to check him out! -Terra James-Jura

Josephine and the Wildfront “Sovereign”

Maybe the release of this single from Josehpine and the Wildront flew under our radar, but we’re catching it this go-round thanks to a gentle Facebook reminder from Ms. Moore herself. “Sovereign” features a low guitar line that sounds as though it comes out of the mist, supported by splashy drums and spectral background vocals. Moore plays with dynamics a little, going softer just when the listener is expecting things to get loud. The now foursome is recording their new EP, “Strange Gold.” You can catch them playing at The Boro this Saturday with Bree and Stagolee. -Terra James-Jura


Cardboard Kids Album Release Show at The High Watt 5.23

Cardboard Kids have been toiling away on their debut release for several months, and the fruit of their labor, “Echo Boomer” is about to meet the public on May 20th. Their music has an unabashed swagger to it thanks to their Texas upbringing, countered by a pop-punk sneer borrowed by their 90’s influences. Title track “Echo Boomer” showcases the grit and attitude that makes up the album. The band will have their release party at The High Watt this Friday with Golden Youth, Lenachka and Poema. -Terra James-Jura

Congratulations to Fast Astronaut, Our New Artist of the Month!

Congratulations to Fast Astronaut, for absolutely carrying the win for The Deli Nashville's Artist of the Month poll. The group started when dorm mates EJ Morgan and Andy Wildrick decided to write a song one evening, wherein they realized they had complimentary visions of creating epic yet relatable pop music.  After finding drummer John Scaffer, the threesome created EP "Invisible Sun," and are moving forward at a brisk pace.  "Stranger" manages to be anthemic and heartfelt, somewhat similar to Fun if they were relieved of their grating, wide-eyed earnesty.  The Deli Nashville urges readers to creep on all their social media feeds to stay abreast of what they do next! -Terra James-Jura
