Travis Hayes Headlines Local Line Up at The Independent TONIGHT

Tonight, The Independent in San Francisco will host a completely local line up, consisting of M. Lockwood Porter, Vandella and Travis Hayes. It's pretty rare to see a full on San Francisco based line up at The Independent, so make sure you go out and support these hardworking artists who earned this awesome gig.

Travis Hayes isn’t the type to wear emotions on his sleeve. He saves that for his songs- brutally honest most of the time, and endearingly heartfelt all the time. Hayes continues the timeless tradition of soul-bearing songwriting to interpret our shared human experience into music. Love, heartbreak, fading friendships, fraught relationships – they’re all expressed achingly through his impassioned voice and melodic guitar lines.

NYC Record of the Month: Bangladeafy - "Narcopaloma"

We are here, desperately tapping the big HELP button on our Life Alert pendant because the latest release from NYC's Bangladeafy has left us bowled over on the floor. Narcopaloma, the band's newest EP, is an unrelenting chaos machine, delivering proggy riffage at its absolute best--there's not a single passage on here that feels either half baked or overworked. The duo of Jon Ehlers and Atif Haq also drop such technically intense licks that any four-piece band would be left eating their dust. Make no mistake, Narcopaloma is a mammoth work (well deserving of multiple listens), but it manages to feel consistently innovative rather than overly indulgent. The record kicks off with "Termites," a frenzied, sonic bomb that deals in both sledge-hammer, driving, brutishness, and jazzy, finessed grooves. "Act Like An Adult," the album's third track, bursts its way through melodies, and puts Haq's slick drum chops on full display. The EP's devilish bends and turns culminate in "Trillionaire," a tune that somehow forges the band's melodic mathcore affection with Latin-feel ostinato. It's an unlikely match, but then again, there's nothing predictable about this band. Check out "Termites" off Narcopaloma streaming below, and seriously, do yourself a favor and check out Bangladeafy playing with Seven)Suns and Cleric 9/27 at St. Vitus. We'll hedge our bets now that these are guys to watch. - Olivia Sisinni

Criminally underrated NYC trio Superhuman Happiness play Rough Trade on 10.06

Brooklyn dance/elcctropop band Superhuman Happiness is the project of saxophonist Stuart Bogie, who has recently toured with Arcade Fire & Iron & Wine, and is also a member of Antibalas. The criminally underrated trio, plays imaginative avant-pop infused with strong percussive elements and - of course - a fair amount of brass. They released their most recent album Escape Velocity via Royal Potato Family in Sept. 2015 and are currently working on new music, and will be performing on October 6th at Rough Trade. Check out their latest two singles 'Drawing Lines' and 'Well, Well, Well,' streaming below.

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

New Music Video: "By The Light" - Moor Mother

Avant-garde sound sculptor Moor Mother, a.k.a. Camae Ayewa, premiered her new music video for "By The Light" earlier today over at Impose Magazine. The Patrick JF Smith-directed creation does an excellent job of playing off the eariness of the track and capturing her tale of urban horror in a a fitting setting before Ayewa spits fury and demonstrates the ability to control her own destiny, no matter the circumstances, through her convictions, words and art. "By The Light" can be found on her new full-lenth album, Fetish Bones, which is available via Don Giovanni Records. Moor Mother will be celebrating her record release in Philly on Saturday, September 24 at Yung Kandy Collective, sharing the stage with NAH.

Lunifred Benjamin releases new single "Atheist Anthem"

Brooklyn-based musician, Lunifred Benjamin - who recently played Rough Trade - crosses genre lines with his mellow prog-folk, while evoking a rootsier-sounding Destroyer with a voice reminiscent of Girls’ Christopher Owens.  In his most recent release, “Atheist Anthem” Benjamin also strays away from common subjects, claiming “Nobody knows what happens when you die” and bringing up (unsurprisingly given the title) the topic of atheism in a rather casual tone.  Using strings and subtle guitar riffs, Lunifred Benjamin obviously enjoys to be in a category all his own, leaving us wondering what unexpected musical elements he can bring next. - Madeleine Grossman
