New Video: "Arranged" (Live - BrooklynVegan Acoustic Sessions) - Abi Reimold

Below is a live solo performance by Abi Reimold of "Arranged," which is the opening track from her latest album Wriggling (Sad Cactus). It was recorded in Philadelphia inside a defunct train tunnel with a skylight for BrooklynVegan Acoustic Sessions. You can catch Riemold this evening at The Leonard Pearlstein Gallery for Philly Radness, where you'll also experience an "interactive pop-up skatepark," as well as the sounds of Queen of Jeans and Hemming.

TEEN, Chaos Chaos, Von Sell and Gold Child play Audiofemme Anniversay bash tonight (04.19)

A NYC based music blog that fosters music journalism by female music writers, Audiofemme tonight is hosting an anniversary bash at Greenpoint's Good Room with lots of talented, mostly female fronted artists. We blogged about psych pop quartet TEEN and indie pop sister duo Chaos Chaos more than once in this blog - check out those links to refresh your ears. Gold Child (pictured) will also perform on the bill; the trio offers tasteful and relaxed Americana with dreamy overtones and is led by the confident alto of Emily Fehler. On the bill also Von Sell, the solo project of David Von Sell, who released two Hypem-blessed singles that successfully blend experimental textures and soul-pop melodies with jazzy tinges. Check out his latest single 'I Insist' streaming below, and last year's debut 'Ivan,' here - we added the latter to The Deli's playlist of Best electronic songs by emerging NYC artists. On the bill also indie rock quartet Marigolds, who evoke Robyn Hitchcock's legendary early band, the Soft Boys.

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

   

Debut Grayling EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The duality of introspectively emotive lyricism meeting the outpouring of external release come to a head when Grayling, a.k.a. Lexi Campion (formerly of Edelweiss), peers inward whilst pushing outward. The result, her debut EP Everything That Burns (which was recently released via NDE Records), is a musical tug of war - heavy and gripping. Hold on tight.

   

Tuxis Giant releases split EP with Traded

To listen to Boston based trio Tuxis Giant is to delve into the deep recesses of your mind. The rollicking guitar riffs and the gentle plucking of the chords play out like quiet, contemplative ruminations that creep up to you in the dark hours of the night. O'Conner’s voice glides over the melancholy melodies like pleading whispers before the electric guitar swells and his voice bellows over them. Tuxis Giant is the type of band you can listen to during long, midnight drives by yourself–the windows down with the wind racing past you. The band released a full length album in 2015 but just released a 4 song EP split with Traded (streaming below). Expect a full band show in a month so keep an eye on their Facebook page for details and listen to their album below!
