Birdie Busch Record Release Show at Boot & Saddle June 18

Come help celebrate the fifth full-length album from Birdie Busch, Thunder Bridge, this evening at Boot & Saddle. Covering you in a warm blanket of cathartic storytelling, the innate, well-placed, rootsy vibe of the album allows the lyrics to lead the way in a traditional folk manner, while the instrumentation helps to accent the sonic setting in a twilight-twinkling, gently-rocking, peacefully-melodic kind of way. An evolving live score will be provided by the electro-traditional hybrid of The Ruins of Friendship Orchestra, which features Laura Baird, Jesse Sparhawk, Ben Warfield, Gretchen Lohse (Carol Cleveland Sings), John Petit (Callowhill), and Michael Dur. It's a night of local music vets, showcasing Philly's rich tradition of talent. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $12, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The Wilder Society performs tonight at Hotel Café, release debut EP next month

The Wilder Society are an emerging foursome that writes raptorous folk pop. They describe themselves as "wanderers, transplants, and vagabonds", which sounds precious by description, sure, but there's a palpable genuineness that's truly earned by way of strummy, wholesome harmonies and bucolic introspection. Their latest single, "The Lion's Den", is a foot-stomping anthem that opens their debut EP of the same name with a wide-eyed optimism, though a further listen to their still-disclosed material exhibits a band whose writing is far more reflective than they initially come off as.

Even if The Lion's Den is slated for a July 2016 release, the band is celebrating the release of the EP with a pre-release show tonight at Hotel Café. - Juan Rodríguez

Dana Falconberry & Medicine Bow Walk You Through the Enigmas of Nature on “From the Forest Came the Fire”

The result of the latest collaboration between Dana Falconberry and her band Medicine Bow is the folksy album From the Forest Came the Fire (Modern Outsider), in which Falconberry tells tales of her days exploring the forests. Released this past April, this effort is one more quality addition to Falconberry’s repertoire of lyrical tunes with vivid imagery of nature and wildlife.

Each song from “From the Forest Came the Fire” is beautifully composed and filled with rich textures paired with elegant harmonies. On these tunes pushed by unbroken rhythm, Falconberry (who has experience playing classical music) effortlessly describes the uniqueness and tranquility of the landscapes in the United States.

Falconberry brings Medicine Bow along with her on this aural journey, said band being a musically diverse group of expert players that consists of Karla Manzur (keys), Gina Dvorak (banjo, guitar), Lindsey Verrill (cello), Christopher Cox (bass), and Mathhew Shepherd. With this group, Falconberry is able to retain the traditional sounds of a folk tune, while also experimenting outside those boundaries to bring out a truly fresh sound.

Along with using strings and humming to enhance her music, Falconberry takes us through an ethereal and passionate experience lyrically, as she takes up the rivers, trees, and mountains as characters to describe her story. One comes away from this lyrically-focused music feeling closer to nature, which seems to be Falconberry’s very point in making it.

If you too would like to vicariously explore the enigmas of nature through music, give three selected tracks from the album a listen below, and check the groups’ Facebook for their current tour dates to hear it performed live.

Buzz Alert! Big Thief plays Celebrate Brooklyn on 06.23 and Summer Stage in September

Brooklyn's Big Thief is the exemplification of what can happen to a band in one year when uncommon talent is matched by a great record, hard work and compelling live performances. The group, led by songwriter Adrianne Lenker, in just one year went from playing your usual Brooklyn venues in front of a few fans, to becoming one of the most talked about new indie acts out of NYC. Currently touring the US, Big Thief will be back in NYC on June 23rd for a live performance at the Prospect Park Shell within the Celebrate Brooklyn Fest. Later in September the band is also scheduled to open for Lucius at Central Park's Summer Stage. If this is not an emerging band with buzz, we don't know what is!
P.S. We are very proud to have premiered their video for single Masterpiece last year

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