Jay Som Releases New Single - 1 Billion Dogs

Jay Som's new single, 1 Billion Dogs is a fuzzy, alternative pop track that we're really into. We're happy to hear new music from Jay Som and can't wait to check out the full album!

Bay Area-based singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Melina Duterte - recently announced Everybody Works, her proper debut album, which will be out on March 10th via Polyvinyl Records

On her first proper album as Jay Som, 22 year-old Melina Duterte solidifies her rep as a self-made force of sonic splendor and emotional might. Everybody Works - which Duterte wrote, recorded, played and produced entirely by herself, save a few backing vocals - was made in three furious, caffeinated weeks in her bedroom studio throughout October. Duterte even ditched most her demos, writing half the LP on the spot. If last year's aptly named Turn Into compilation showcased a fuzz-loving artist in flux, chronicling her mission to master bedroom recording, then Everybody Works is the LP equivalent of a mission accomplished.

ENTRANCE and Bill Callahan Play Starline Social Club in Oakland - 2/4

Don't miss ENTRANCE at Starline Social Club in Oakland on Saturday, February 4th w/ Bill Callahan in support of his upcoming album, Book of Changes.

ENTRANCE's Book of Changes (out Feb. 24th) is a poetic song cycle about the seasons of the heart, tracing an emotional journey through longing and emptiness to peace and redemption. The record achieves a seamless melding of the personal, political and philosophical, a vibrant document of an artist hitting a creative stride and discovering an expansive new sound. The first single "Always the Right Time" takes the same energy of ENTRANCE's protest track, Not Gonna Say Your Name and points that energy towards the positive, grabbing life by the horns and celebrating what's most important: "It's always the right time for love".

Buzz Alert! DL is OK lands February residency at Pianos

We were glad to see Tom Petty's name mentioned in the profile notes of NYC artist DL is OK, because we were going to mention it in this blurb, and sometimes artists don't like their influences to be revealed (in particular when we get them wrong...) But, hey, there are a gazillion bands out there channeling The Ramones and Pavement, and some of them are nonetheless great and very original, just to say that influences means nothing. Point is, it's actually very easy to be original and devastatingly boring, while writing a truly good song is a heck of a lot harder, even if you wear your influences on your sleeve. As far as Tom Petty is concerned, the man is incredibly underrated among emerging indie bands, so much so that hardly anybody seems interested in referencing his music. Truth is, he wrote some of the most timeless pop songs in the history of mainstream rock, without every sounding cheesy, forced or contrived. As far as we are concerned, we need more songwriters able to blend americana, pop and rock in earnest and memorable musical nuggets the way he could. DL is OK's debut EP "Into the Flood" is a promising step in that direction - check out the titletrack below. The band just landed a residency at Pianos during the month of February, starting on the 7th.

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