Providence duo INFJ plays Machines With Magnets on 11.20

Providence duo INFJ calls its music "mom rock" and its January-released EP 's/t' provides the sublime consolation of that parent. Mostly Americana-twanged folk with a splendidly poppy number ("Best Laid Plans," streaming below), the five-song album gracefully explores such common feelings as longing and loneliness with compassion, Scott Thompson's patient guitars and Hayley Simmons' gliding voice providing angelic warmth. The creaky elegance of early Sharon Van Etten and Grizzly Bear is a possible influence on these songs but, largely due to Thompson's pining lyrics, they sound remarkably fresh.

Annie Girl and the Flight Debut New Music Video - Antidote

Annie Girl and the Flight have outdone themselves with a vibrant social commentary on cultural complications in the Bay Area and beyond. Making an appreciated attempt to return the power to a young, talented Black woman who seems to get played no matter what playing field of life she chooses to step on, Annie Girl and the Flight´s video for their song, Antidote paints a very vivid picture of how it feels to be Black and female in America. The Deli is always into poingent reflections on diversity and empathy for others who give everything they have and sometimes fall short, ending up with their hands in the air for no reason at all. This is a great video!

¨The video features a political statement about racial profiling by the police and also cameos from many local San Francisco musicians.¨

Annie Girl and The Flight will be supporting Micachu & the Shapes on November 10th at Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco.

Austin's Favorite Psych Band The Halfways Back with "Not All Are to Be Trusted"

One of the best of Austin’s psych rock contingent and our Artist of the Month earlier this year, The Halfways, have released a neat little single this month that goes by the ominous name “Not All Are to Be Trusted.” Tagged with the much less ominous “SpaaaceRock” on SoundCloud, this new jam oozes out of the speakers with a feel-good, chill-out vibe that’s much more about fun and kicking it to relaxing psychy-goodness than the title might suggest. This is top-notch stuff from a band we’d expect nothing less of, and you can get in on the party right below.

The Nursery's cross-genre alt pop

Toronto-based band, The Nursery, forges momentous pop music that highlights the grittier side of the genre. Pulling from indie pop and alt rock, their music is driven by steady drum-beats and grounding bass lines, while melodies blend together with vocals and lyrics flirting with epic overtones: “I remember the times we stared into/ eyes of strangers and learned the truth/ I wish I had the power of the moon/ to curve the tides and become immune.”

Painted Palms share video for "Refractor," + tour with Small Black

Bicoastal synth-pop duo Painted Palms released their sophomore album Horizons in September, shorly after embarking in an intensive (and still ongoing) five week tour with Brooklyn like-minded band Small Black. The project's latest effort elegantly blends conflicting '80s electronic influences, including Soft Cell's light pop attitude and darker tendencies reminiscent of bands like Depeche Mode and Wire. Baby's All Right will be hosting the NYC leg of their tour on November 20. Check out their brand new video for single "Refractor."
