Folk rock songwriter Nadia Kazmi plays Baby's All Right on 8/8

On her third release, LAMB, New York songwriter, Nadia Kazmi shows an enviable range of genres, moods, and influences.  Opener “Kill the Monster” adopts angsty blues and punk elements, with results reminiscent of a Karen O with Janis Joplin's melodic tendencies.  The rest of the album, starting with second track Lamb in Wolf's Clothing, takes a narrative turn, as it displays more folk rock leanings with a vocal cadence reminiscent of Bob Dylan, and various other '60 influences.  “Haunting” proceeds to evoke The Doors and as the album progresses, the songstress continues to release intense energy and something akin to inner turmoil that manages to pull us in.  For what is guaranteed to be a lively show, check her out at Baby’s All Right on August 8th. - Madeleine Grossman

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best folky songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





Teen Suicide opens for Elvis Depressedly at Strange Matter on 8.05

From 2009 until 2013, Teen Suicide existed as the solo project of Sam Ray, who self-released all of the project's lo-fi bedroom recordings on Bandcamp. The band recently announced their return with a permanent lineup, and signed to Boston label Run For Cover Records, under whose umbrella they released a collection of new songs, entitled It's the Big Joyous Celebration, Let's Stir the Honeypot. This is a daunting 69 minute album that consists of 26 tracks featuring a variety of different sounds. The album's most accessible moments feature almost flower pop sensibility with orchestral flourishes (hear opener Living Proof), while tracks like “Alex” seem to reference at once folk, prog and slacker rock influences. To make things even more complicated, the album unravels even more unexpected moments featuring experimental electronic and psychedelic influences. Teen Suicide will be supporting fellow lo-fi rockers and labelmates Elvis Depressedly at Strange Matter on August 5th. - John Honan





Body English brings folk-prog to Middle East on 7/31

While the "prog-rock band" label is generally reserved for artists with alt-rock leanings and a fondness for the rock of the '70s, Boston's Body English are just as, if not more so, deserving of such a title. Instead of disconstructing alt-rock and putting it back together, the six-piece band applies the process to balladic folk-rock.  The result is a vortex of melodies old and new, with classical elements peppered in as well, that satisfies due to its ability to come across as intimately familiar while being innovative at the same time. You can catch them live at The Middle East on 7/26. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber, Photo Credit: Chris Anderson





Weekend Warrior, July 29 - 31

Mary Lattimore is coming to The Foundry tonight for a dazzling spectacle of evocative avant-harp plucking. Lattimore is the new anomalous harpist that has been embraced by the wider indie music community, collaborating with artists such as Kurt Vile, Thurston Moore, Arcade Fire, and many more. Her whimsical music is largely improvised, and attempts to capture a certain mood, image, or theme in its wandering melodies. On tour with Lattimore is Quilt, the psych-pop crew that everybody loves for their pitch-perfect, effortlessly agreeable, upper-crust indie rock. Their sound is primarily rooted in Beatles worship, but there is also a resemblance to more contemporary indie bands like Tame Impala or Of Montreal. The Foundry, 29 E. Allen St., 9pm, $13, All Ages - Bryce Woodcock

Afropunk Festival coming to Brooklyn on 8/27 and 8/28

The Afropunk Festival is returning to Brooklyn this August 27th and 28th and we’ve got you covered with a playlist of all the local artists scheduled to play.  First up is Saul Williams – a poet as well as musician who melds poetry and hip-hop together in order to create a unique kind of alternative hip-hop.  The VeeVees, on the other hand, remind us that rock'n'roll is basically sped up, punhcy blues, a genre America stole from Africa.  The Whooligan slow things down with tracks full of meditative yet infectious electronica.  DJ Lindsey is no stranger to the DJ scene and creates catchy tracks that are tinged with nostalgia full of hip hop and soul vocals. On a similar line operates also DJ Juliana Huxtable, mixing tracks that are full of loud and danceable beats, but that really demand to be heard for themselves.  LSDXOXO accurately relates his music to “crying in club” as it blends melancholia, house and rap. Brooklyn based producer, CX Kidtronik makes bouncy hip hop infused with electronica, and last but not least, Dhundee combines a variety of sounds curated for dancing, experimenting with all kinds of instruments that aren’t used as often by others in the genre. - Madeleine Grossman
