Abi Reimold Opening for Ava Luna at Space 1026 Sept. 25

Raw, visceral, dreamy, anything she wants to sound like. Abi Reimold brings a sound and fury that cradles - sometimes like a loving mother, and other times like a bed of razor blades. But it is always hauntingly beautiful. And she’ll be bringing that sound and fury to Space 1026 when she opens for avant-pop Brooklynites Ava Luna. They'll also be joined by Philly psych-popsters Laser Background. Come out for a rare performance at the Chinatown art space! Space 1026, 1026 Arch St., $10, All Ages (Photo by Skyler Burkhart) - Keith Kelley

Dear Friend Record Release Show at Ortlieb's Sept. 24

The collective advance of Dear Friend rains down like an avalanche. The persistent, energy-gathering, instrumental interplay as smatterings of time-setting, exclamatory thuds of backend circling the soaring sear of guitar provides a well-rounded compliment. Meanwhile, Kenny Luu’s vocals slyly slip into the center with a reserved, cool demeanor. However, the songs carry infectious tenderness, integrating the intense ethereal qualities of shoegazing with the rampant immediacy of pop-punk. Tonight, they will be celebrating the release of their self-titled album at Ortlieb’s. With calm yet eruptive vocals, the melodic one-two rumble of duo Honeytiger and the ominous grit of quartet Tiny Vices will be laying down the groundwork for their Philly cohorts. Brooklyn trio Atomic Girl will also deliver a tightly spun contagious rock set that ramps up and appears ready to tear at the seams. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The Shacks about to release debut EP, play BKLYN Bazaar on 09.29

Should you be in need of a magical something that can lull you to sleep during your stressful life in the city, look no further than Brooklyn's The Shacks and their first official single "Left It With The Moon." The song employs a timeless melody, Shannon Wise's delicate soprano, and a few other rather rudimental instruments to reach into the listener's buried childhood - and the sleeping proneness it entails: if sleeping like a baby is your ida of happiness, The Shacks are your kind of band. Earlier this year, the duo also unveiled a collaboration with instrumental NYC band El Michels Affair, which resulted in stunning single 'Strange Boy,' a more produced dream pop gem with shades of doo-wop complemented by an appropriately noir video (also streaming). Their self titled debut EP is scheduled to be released on October 28. Don't miss their Brooklyn Bazaar show on September 29!

We added both these tracks to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Jay Pray's Chillwave is as chilled as it gets!

If the very NYC "Chillwave" phenomenon still exist, the musical output of Brooklyn via Connecticut electronic artist Jay Pray definitely belongs to it, even just for the fact that the guy has one of the most chilled and gentle voices we've stumbled upon in a while. His most popular single "I'd go anywhere" (streaming) blends dancey soul pop verses a la' Hall & Oates with fuller choruses flirting with electronica. The other single available for streaming, 'Smile,' is even more chilled, exuding positivity and hope, as if it was srping all over again! Look out for a debut release scheduled for late October!

Soccer Mommy moves to NYC, plays Silent Barn on 10.02

Straddling the line between Suzanne Vega's intellectual but vulnerable songwriting and Belly's dreamy pop melodicism, Soccer Mommy, the project of songwriter Sophie Allison, recently relocated from Nashville to NYC. Since 2015, the young lady has released three strictly self-produced EPs (two of them are called 'songs of my bedroom') and one full length album entitled 'for young hearts.' Single and opening track 'Henry' (streaming below) shines for its imaginative lyrics, with Sophie trying to guess a loved boy's thoughts and feelings, accompanied by a heart wrenching melody. NYC 'young hearts' shouldn't miss her show at the Silent Barn on 10.02
