Electronic singer-songwriter Haux plays Baby's All Right on 04.27 + tours

Haux’s music belongs to a breed of dream-folk that knocks the air right out of your lungs. The NYC-based (via London) singer-songwriter recently released a remix package of his song “Caves,” a hushed, atmospheric composition with hints of drama and the catch and release of gingerly-built tension. We are streaming below the original version from last year's EP "All We've Known." Haux will be playing live on April 27 at Baby's All Right, and will be on tour this summer in North America and Europe. - Geena Kloeppel

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

HOTT MT takes us to "At Night in Chinatown"

Minimal experimental pop duo HOTT MT are back with "At Night in Chinatown", a heavily layered track that continues their streak of splicing a random assortment of gossamer noises that both soothes the ears and captures one's curiosity. The accompanying video combines a random sorting of visuals that were mostly shot at their warehouse space, best known to most of us DIY gig seekers as Non Plus Ultra (R.I.P.), as well as a few nocturnal shots of, well, Chinatown. 

"At Night in Chinatown" is taken from their forthcoming second album AU, out May 4 via their own label Mutation Records.

James Tillman's Enlightening Electronic Jazz

James Tillman's music is produced with the kind of artistry that makes him mysterious. His debut album, Silk Noise Reflex, is an electronic take on Jazz, Soul, and R&B much in the same style as Flying Lotus. Tillman's songwriting and vocal talents, however, prove undeniably apparent on the record, setting him aside from purely electronic producers. His melodies feel relaxed and natural, as if he created the entire work just strolling through a park. There are some universal themes that run throughout this sonic hybrid album. The search for meaning, companionship, health, and happiness seem to weave their way throughout every song. More than feeling like a cheesy self-help book, however, Tillman's songs are measured and sure. What's being chronicled isn't a denial of loss, loneliness, anxiety, and insecurity, but an embracing of these realities and an insistence that they're necessary parts of life. In this way, Silk Noise Reflex is dualistic both with its blend of electronic production and real instrumentation and in its abstract content. If you're a fan of psychedelic, jazzy, hip hop stylel production, this is an NYC artist you'd be doing yourself a disservice to ignore.

New Elegant Animals EP Available for Streaming & Download

Elegant Animals has just released another new EP Warm Blood Pt. 2. The record seamlessly ties together electro R&B and soul. While coasting on buoyant, pillowy grooves, the songs allude to an air of danger. “Amateur Video,” with its smooth, seductive, simmering, bedroom funk, feels like a nod to the late, great Prince. Finally, album closer, “Saved,” surveys in a streetwalking, soulful nostalgia. Make it the soundtrack to your stroll or ride through Philly this beautiful weekend.

Experimental soul? Juliana Huxtable at BK Bazaar on 03.25

Juliana Huxtable will bring her manic electronica to Brooklyn Bazaar on Saturday March 25. The DJ, producer, performer and model has long been a favorite of the NYC art scene, and her music mirrors the dynamic, wild, and multi-faceted persona radiating from the artist. Huxtable's latest release, "DISCOWOMAN MIX: SCHIZOANALYSIS," is a monster track that manages to effortlessly fold in spoken word and gossamer, echoed vocals with stomping, high-energy beats and angular synths over the course of its hour run time. Take a listen to the mix streaming below, and make sure you catch her set this Saturday. - Olivia Sisinni
