Thirdstory releases new single 'G Train", plays Baby's All Right on 12/18

This could be the first and last time you read about NYC band Thirdstory on the pages of The Deli. It's not like we have anything against the talented soul-folk band, rather, it's that too many people are beginning to jam with their catchy, rugged sound. The latest of their newer legion of fans appears to be none other than critically-acclaimed emcee Pusha T. On the highlight of the trio's recently released Searching EP, "G Train," they pair up with Pusha to deliver a hard-hitting track that embodies the gritty, resilent nature of New York and New Yorkers. Though T is from Virginia, he feels right at home on a song about the underside of The Big Apple. Thirdstory are on a world tour right now, but you can catch them back at home on 12/18 at Baby's All Right. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber 

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

Sunday Sounds: Sallie Ford - "Get Out"

One of the city's biggest pride and joys, Sallie Ford, has been relatively low key following her split with the Sound Outside and the release of 2014's Slap Back. Over these last couple of years we knew deep down Ford wasn't laying her musical abilities to rest and this month, along with the release of a new single, she announced more new material coming our way through an upcoming album.

February will see the deliverance of Soul Sick, an album of emotive reflection featuring a slew of talented Portlanders that helped bring it to life. Ford found herself at Type Foundry Studio where she solicited the help of Mike Coykendall along with his brother John, Kirk Hamilton, Garth Klippert of Old Light, Ben Nugen of Dolorean, Kris Doty of Modern Kin and helping hand to Tom Waits and the B-52's Ralph Carney in bringing instrumental talent and production smarts to the process. 

On what Soul Sick is all about, Ford said:

This is a confessional album about struggling with my issues — some that I’ve overcome and some that I still carry around. This is an album about insecurity, anxiety and depression; it’s an album about band breakups, major life changes, and what it took to deal with those things. Growing up, I was a middle child and a homeschooler, so I’ve always felt like an outsider. In making this record, I explored what my music means to me, and how I’ve always struggled with feeling the pressure of not being good enough and wanting to quit. On these new songs, it felt good to write on one theme and from one place. All in all, Soul Sick has taught me a lot about myself and helped me to heal.

Soul Sick will be out via Vanguard Records on February 10. Give the first track from the album, "Get Out," a listen below.

Weekend Warrior, November 25 - 27

Thanksgiving is a time for homecoming and festivities. And that's exactly what The Districts have in mind when they return to Philly for a little break from their fall tour. The hometown love is strong for the Lititz, PA transplants, so just one show might not be enough for their friends and fans this holiday weekend. Instead, they've setup a Trifecta of kick-ass, sold-out shows, with the help of some talented friends, that will be beginning this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. Tonight, the introspective beauty of Kississippi will be tugging at the heartstrings, after a dramatic, oddly spooky performance from Baltimore’s Albert Bagman. On Saturday, you’ll find The Districts joined by buzzworthy Philly newcomers Tangiers and The Dove & The Wolf. And finally, the Fat Possum artists will be hosting a very rare, all-ages show at JB’s on Sunday that also features alt-rockers Mumblr, who will be happily returning home from their own big tour. Johnny Brenda's, 1201. N Frankford Ave., 9pm (7pm - Sunday), SOLD OUT, 21+ (All Ages - Sunday) (Photo by Sarah Rudderow) - Bill McThrill

Goldenchild bring their cosmic country to BK Bazaar on 11.30

In 2015, the duo of Wiley Gaby & Jeffrey Doker, Goldenchild, released their debut LP ’Bridges’, a country-pop record with a peculiar cosmic aura. The album's title track perfectly exemplifies this quality: a reverb-drenched guitar swells in, introducing a surreal atmosphere; soon enough, more traditional instruments join it, including also an airy string section. The main vocals and harmonies bring a worldly element to the track, but their evocative tone plays into the mysterious mood set by that initial, droney effect. Take a listen to the below and/or see the band live at Brooklyn Bazaar on November 30th with The Hollows-Ashley Muniz

New Shadow Band 7" Available for Streaming & Download

Led by Mike Bruno, the musical collective of Shadow Band, which also features Megan Biscieglia (Bad Braids), recently released a new 7” via Mexican Summer. The pair of songs, “Eagle Unseen” and “Moonshine,” enacts a somewhat drafty psych-folk mysticism. These tracks breathe in the mysterious air of the forest, hypnotically wandering among the foliage, as the warmly interwoven percussion, acoustic guitar, keys, etc. draws one into the shadows.
