Sam Himself debuts sophomore EP "Nobody"

With his deep and expressive voice, Swiss, New York City based indie rocker Sam Himself possesses the swagger of crooners of the '80s like Bruce Springsteen and Chris Isaak, with a deep touching at times the depths of The National's Matt Berninger's tenor on "Bad as a Smile," our favorite track among the ones streaming on his Soundcloud page. The songwriting flirts with timelesness, offering rock songs with an atmospheric and thoughtfully sophisticated angle. Today Sam Himself releases his sophomore EP titled "Nobody," you can stream it here





New smth savant Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

Music collective smth savant was formed last year by Philly producers Kilamanzego and Madam Data. Their monthly performance series Backyard Bxss has offered a common space for local beatmakers, showcasing experimental electronic producers and singers. The events are often live streamed on their Facebook page. As smth savant approach their first anniversary, they’ve released a compilation, featuring associated artists like Orion Sun and Mental Jewelry (both Mental Jewelry and Madam Data have collaborated with acclaimed Philly sound sculptor/emcee Moor Mother). The collective have facilitated some really exciting music in their first year, and this compilation is a solid retrospective on what they’ve already achieved. - Josh Kelly





New Track: "Ain't Life Grand" - A.M. Mills

Flurries of delicate guitar marry a matriculating, warm bass and sandy percussion in A.M. Mills latest single, "Ain't Life Grand". There’s a worn aesthetic and a sly sense of humor on display. It feels nostalgic - a comfortable melancholy that we're all invited to join in on. You can find the former Blood Feathers co-frontman crooning his heart out this evening at Johnny Brenda's, with The Cactus Blossoms and Frankie Lee. (Photo by Serge Levin)





88 Palms unveil video for "Bright Lights" + announce "Love Safari" EP

Don't we all need a dose of stylishness every now and then? This week we get our fix from this video by NYC synthpop duo 88 Palms for single "Bright Lights", which is counterintuitively set in the dark rooms of a downtown NYC venue. The band's seductive melodies and loungy arrangements immediately bring to mind a more electronic version of Sade, filtered through the glitter of glo-fi. Sensual and vaguely dreamy, the track sets the ideal atmosphere for mass flirting, which is reason good enough to look forward to a whole EP of this: titled 'Love Safari' it's scheduled for a May 25th release.

A Deli Premiere: former AOTM Talkie releases "Costa Rica"

Since winning The Deli SF’s Artist of the Month poll last year, the fuzzy Bay Area indie rockers Talkie have been hard at work on their forthcoming album Fundamental Things, slotted to be released on April 27th. The Deli is excited to announce the premiere of the single “Costa Rica” (streaming below), a catchy and quirky track that we just can’t get enough of. The strength of this song is in its deceptive simplicity; meaning, the way the four-piece can make interesting guitar parts, tight percussion, and smooth lyricism all sound so easy and carefree. But, that's just Talkie in a nutshelll. Stay tuned for the release on April 27th, and make sure to mark June 9th on your calendar so you can see Talkie take Bottom of the Hill. - Lilly Milman
