A Deli Premiere: "New York City" by Lindsay Foote

Heartfelt and elegant is the new single by Boston's Lindsay Foote: "New York City" is an ode to a fragile dream broken by reality, its shards buried deep in the bright guitar riffs and passionate vocals. It was not so long ago that Lindsay grappled with the tough decision that inspired the track that she recalls "'New York City' was inspired by a decision I faced in my own life. A few years ago, I was deciding whether or not to move from Toronto to New York City with my boyfriend at the time. We were going through tough times in our relationship, and part of me hoped that a fresh start in a new city would fix it. Deep down, though, I knew that it wouldn't. This song is about facing that decision and finally being honest with myself about what I wanted." The confession is a liberating one as "New York City" boasts Lindsay's Americana style of music with a graceful abandonment of reservations; each instrument builds on the next with class: a clean and refined bassline accompanies a snappy snare beat that races alongside a reverberating electric guitar and Lindsay's intrepid vocals toward an honest end. Americana/indie artists like Brandi Carlile and Katie Toupin exude sincerity in each lyric and captivate wholly, Foote shows she has that and then some. Lindsay will be playing at the Aeronaut Brewery in Somerville on November 13th; we are proud to premiere "New York City" below for New England and beyond. - Rene Cobar

   

Hallelujah the Hills previews new album with dual singles

The cool winds of the fall are settled in, but New England bands are still bringing in the heat. Such is the case with Boston’s Hallelujah the Hills, whose dual singles are hot alt-rock music to gather around. “Folk Music Is Insane” is melodic in the verses and destructive in the choruses: from grand piano embellishments to swelling orchestral instrumentation drowned in guitar distortion, you never quite know where the song is headed, and that is alright. “Running Hot With Fate” has more of an indie feel to it, with harmonies glazed atop a steady rhythm section that drives the song forward with sweet style (you can’t help but be infected by the groove). Hallelujah the Hills is not afraid to go big; the band stands out by blending indie rock with a distinct Americana touch—now that is different. The singles are part of the band’s upcoming album, I’m You, which is slated for release November 15, 2019. Stream “Running Hot With Fate” below to start your week right. - Rene Cobar

Damone ends ten-year + hiatus with new single "Moon and Stars"

New England scene indie-pop legends Damone are back at last, and the day is just that much better. The group’s sky-high successes dazzled audiences all across the world during the mid-‘00s with Out Here All Night, the group’s second studio album, peaking at #168 in the Billboard 200 charts. The group’s latest single “Moon and Stars” carries within its delicate electric guitar riffs and soft harmonies the weight of the group’s absence: the trials and tribulations the group has endured over the last decade brings it together powerfully and charges its music with full emotion. We tip our hats to these local heroes whose music continues to inspire and captivate; the Boston-based band’s latest single is reflective, soothing, and just the right track for the hopeful. We are hoping to see some live shows upcoming throughout New England. Stream the new single below and lose yourself for a while. - Rene Cobar
