Yoke Lore tours with Elliot Moss, plays Bowery on 09.22 + talks about the creative process on Delicious Audio

Combing lush vocal harmonies and smart, dance-y, instrumental layers, Yoke Lore creates tunes that have the force of a formidable sonic front, but still manage to soundm sincere. Though his tracks reflect a ready-for-airwaves sheen, there's nothing about the Brooklyn-based artist's music that seems rote, and his work is at once accessible and soul-baring. The man was asked to open for like-minded NYC musician Eliot Moss on his upcoming east coast tour, and the two will be sharing the stage of the Bowery Ballroom on September 22nd. Recently, Yoke Lore made The Deli privy to his wide range of influences, and what goes on during his creative process. - Olivia Sisinni, Photo by Jacob Wayler

Tele Novella unveils Sci Fi video for 'Heavy Balloon' + announces new album

This super fun video by Tele Novella for single "Heavy Balloon" caught our attention today. Somewhat disavowing their own name, the Austin based pop quartet looks for visual inspiration in the cheesy Sci Fi movies of the '70s. The song strikes a perfect balance between catchiness and sophistication, in a vein not too dissimilar from Camera Obscura's most memorable singles. The song will be included in their upcoming album House of Souls out 9/23.





New England Record of the Month: Astronoid (live at Great Scott on 09.13)

Boston’s Astronoid interject beautifully dreamy instrumentation and ethereal vocals into black metal on their impressive debut full length Air, which was released in June on the Finnish metal label Blood Music. It cohesively blends shoegaze, thrash, prog-rock, black metal, and punk to form what they call “dream thrash”. While the five-piece embraces the clean atmospheric sounds of post-rock bands like Explosions in the Sky, they also offer a pummeling and swift assault of black metal blast beats that shows off drummer's Matt St. Jean’s solid skills. Instead of resorting to the usual harsh and guttural screams the black metal genre is known for, vocalist Brett Boland uses an elegantly clean vocal delivery that channels the airy sounds of popular shoegaze acts such as Slowdive and Ride. It would be easy to lose sight of their goal on an LP that pulls from an eclectic group of influences, but Astronoid do a fantastic job at forging a sound that stays consistent throughout the album. They will be playing at Great Scott on September 13th in support of Ghost Bath! - John Honan





Weyes Blood moves from NYC to LA, release singles "Do You Need My Love" and "Seven Words"

Straddling the line betweeen Otis Redding's soulful vintage pop and Nico's decadent, maudit songwriting, Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Merring, who recently relocated from NYC to LA) is certainly a singular talent. Gifted with an incredibly deep and expressive voice, until recently the singer songwriter performed solo on stage with just an acoustic guitar and a four track recorder playing anything from vintage sounding instrumental tracks to background noise, but she will be joined by a full band for her upcoming tour. Weyes blood recently unveiled two singles from her forthcoming album, Front Row Seat To Earth, titled "Seven Words" and “Do You Need My Love” (both streaming below). The latter, released a few days ago, struggles with impossible love, and the feedback loop that such a love engenders: the harder to grasp, the easier to let oneself slide into unchecked romance. Angelinos will be able to catch her at The Resident on September 15th, while New Yorkers who missed her performance at Rough Trade this weekend will get another chance on November 10th at The Park Church Co-op.





The Deli DC Area's Record of the Month: Go Cozy - "Glaziao"

Named after the Puerto Rican slang word for perfect surfing conditions, Go Cozy’s debut full length Glaziao is a warm and hypnotic release that takes inspiration from ethereal acts such as The Sundays and The LA's. The quintet creates deeply personal music while wielding airy guitar tones and lush melodies. Lyrically, the album touches on themes of self-loathing, introspection, and damaging love, while warm shimmering guitars and graceful harmonies from front-man Homero Salazar Andrujovich and Maria Sage keep Go Cozy’s music delightfully upbeat. Definitely an enjoyable find. - John Honan
