Joan as a Police Woman, Okay Kaya and Kelsey Lu play at The Hum on Sunday with many other NYC female artists

We've been big fans of Brooklyn based Norvwegian songwriter Okay Kaya since we saw her first video for single 'Damn Gravity,' released in the spring of 2015. We've been missing her live a couple of times (she cancelled a CMJ show on us in 2015, and we didn't cath her at SXSW in 2016, so we won't miss the oportunity to see her at The Deli's sponsored appointment with The Hum, this Sunday April 24th at Greeinpoint's Manhattan Inn, when she will be playing a semi-improvisational set with Aerial East and Kelsey Lu. We are also happy to report that she has released some new material earlier this year, which showcases a welcome orchestral development of her uber-sparse style - check out single Keep On Pushin', streaming below.

Kelsey Lu (pictured) is a NYC based artist we've never covered before that is also worthy of attention. Born in Charlotte, NC, this classically trained cellist plays with Solange among others, although her own music flirts with ambient and experimental tendencies.

At The Hum this Sunday you'll also be able to see  Joan Wasser of Joan As Police Woman (who needs no presentation) in a set with drummer Jordyn Blakely (of Stove) and Noga Shefi of Zula, who will also share the stage with Taiwanese vibraphonist Yuhan Su in a separate set. 

This is the last appointment with The Hum, a series The Deli has been sponsoring for the second year in a row - you can read about past showcase previews here.

New artist to check out: Zebulon Gone plays Baby's All Right on 04.23

We are not sure if the concept of "sulking while danicing" existed before the introduction of goth music, but we certainly find the paradox amusing. Were you in the mood for it, we recommend you to watch this video, practice at home, get dressed appropriately, and then go showcase to the public your new moves and attire at Baby's All Right on April 23rd, during Zebulon Gone's live performance. This is a very new, local, one man act that blends goth with industrial (which is an electronic version of goth) without venturing in the latter genre's overly clangy tendencies. Check out single 'Get Out, streaming below.

Brooklyn's Arthur Moon plays debut show at National Sawdust on Saturday (4/23)

Just last month, Brooklyn avant-pop sextet Arthur Moon released its sonorously boisterous debut EP, ‘Our Head.’ Starting with the reverb-backed call to awareness “Room” and featuring “Bold Affair” (streaming below), a drum-nicked, Deradoorian-esque track that is as romantically audacious as its title, the four-track effort doesn’t just marvel in its ability to meld disparate genres (rock, minimalism, art-pop, amongst them) but also in the way it imbues vulnerability with calmness; one may just find solace in these beatific songs. Arthur Moon will have its debut show at National Sawdust in Williamsburg on Saturday (4/23). – Zach Weg

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

Linear Downfall hits the road; Win two tickets for their Nashville show!

If there's a soundtrack to losing your mind and loving it, Linear Downfall is the composer, the band, and the medium itself. All the symptoms are there on 2015's Sufferland: the delicate, lucid orchestral movements, feeding directly into pieces that sound like those movements were run through a random number generator and then stomped into the concrete. Needless to say, their live show is also completely nuts. That's why we're thrilled to announce that not only is Linear Downfall taking their freak-psych show on the road, but they're kicking the whole thing off with a Nashville stop on May 6 featuring Pleasures, Yumi and the System, and Carter Routh. Oh, and did we mention that a lucky fan and their plus-one will get to check that show out for free?

Enterprising Nashvillians who want TWO free tickets to the May 6 show at the High Watt oughta follow us on Twitter and then tweet with the hashtag #DeliGiveaway. It's that easy! The contest closes in one week, on April 26 at noon CST, which also happens to be when we'll notify our randomly-chosen winner. And while it's true that there's only going to be one winner, the fact that Linear Downfall is on tour should put a big ol' smile on everybody's face. Have a look at the full tour schedule below and start planning!

Echoscape unveils video for "March of A Lonesome Man" + plays Pianos on 05.04

We discovered Echoscape, the brainchild of NYC's dreamy acoustic guitar virtuoso Satoshi Inoue, through our latest Best of NYC Poll for Emerging Artists.  As you can see from his latest video for instrumental piece "March of A Lonesome Man," the young man has a rather unique way to play that instrument. His sung songs blend dream pop, folk and math rock in unexpected ways, check out his recent single 'Brightest,' below. You can catch Echoscape live at Pianos on May 4th.
