A Deli Premiere: Rachel Angel unveils lo-fi video for folky track “Not Enough”

Rachel Angel’s Not Enough EP, released in April of this year on Human Noise Records, is full of folky lo-fi recordings, calm tracks that play like warm cups of tea and morning sun. The EP’s three songs (it also includes a demo version of the title track) aren’t necessarily subdued, but Angel’s focus is on subtler, internal emotional tension. Her new video for “Not Enough,” directed by Olivia Mertz, fits perfectly into that aesthetic with a grainy VHS style quality, following Angel through a day that’s charming, if marked by brief discomforts. There are autumn leaves, bagels, and some reading in the park, all of which Angel’s music seems meant to soundtrack. Watch the video for “Not Enough” below. – Cameron Carr

Starting on June 7, the festival will be celebrating its tenth anniversary with events scattered across Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick.

David Madras - Singer/Songwriter new single "Hercules"

David Madras is a singer/songwriter from Toronto making nice sounding Americana/roots tunes. Similar to a Justin Townes Earle kinda vibe. He just released a new single “Hercules”. This track carries a nice rhythm with a crisp sounding lead guitar while lyrically it seems more melancholy. That dynamic helps add layers to the track as a whole. You can see Madras perform at Open Tuning on Clinton St. on June 9th. – Kris Gies

The Happy Fits share new single "Grow Back"

Any fan of Vampire Weekend or The Black Keys will recognize and enjoy the dance-friendly, angular indie pop of The Happy Fits. The trio of Jersey-based youngsters have released their latest single "Grow Back" (streaming), a song that will appear on the band's upcoming debut record Concentrate, out this June. "Grow Back" is a hard-driving track about a character named Mrs. Mae who is trying to escape a lobotomy by using a pair of scissors she snuck into her pocket. Musically, it packs more of a punch dynamics-wise than previous singles "Best Tears" and "Achey Bones", also included in the upcoming LP. A music video for "Grow Back" is on its way, but in the mean time you can catch the band live at The Saint in Asbury Park on May 28th.. - Will Sisskind
