A Deli Premiere: single "Adieu" from NH-based People Like You

It’s been a little less than a year since The Deli New England last heard from People Like You, the eclectic and electric gypsy-folk-rockers hailing from Portsmouth, NH. And they haven’t wasted a second of that time. Their forthcoming third studio album, Dancing on the Dead, shows the band at their best—they’re tighter than ever before, and they haven’t given up on their rootsy experimental sound, either. People Like You is filling in the gap left by other, freak-folk greats—perhaps most specficially, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes. Of course, they don’t fit perfectly in the space left by the now-disbanded group, because the music of People Like You is entirely their own. There’s nothing derivative about it.

We’re happy to be premiering the single “Adieu” from Dancing on the Dead, which will be released on May 11th. The release of the album will kickstart a summer tour, beginning at Fury’s Publick House in Dover, NH. - Lilly Milman, photo by Lily Eye

Yours Are The Only Ears shares "You and Bobby" + LP release party on 5.25 at Alphaville

With new album Knock Hard on the way, Susannah Cutler's musical project Yours Are The Only Ears has just unveiled a new single, "You and Bobby". Reflective of Cutler's soft folk style, the production quality builds upon the work she's released over the years; gone are the lo-fi artifacts from 2016's EP friendship porn, making way for clarity in Cutler's mellow guitar and wide-ranging voice, both of which explore the lower notes to drive home the theme of self-preservation and introspection after trauma. The heightened production makes every breath and subtle waver in Cutler's airy voice audible; in there you can hear the layers of emotion which cover every word and note that she sings. "You and Bobby" is the third single off of the upcoming LP, which is titled Knock Hard; the album drops on May 11th, but Cutler will mark the release with a show at Alphaville on May 25th. Listen to "You and Bobby" below. - Will Sisskind

Country-psych group Babies' Babies plays Alphaville on 05.05 with Dark Tea

Rare is the country band who forms and finds an audience in the city, but Babies' Babies has done just that. Though front woman Olivia Lurrie began performing live just a couple of months ago, her shows have drawn sizable audiences of fans who sway and dance to her and her band's country-psych jams. Styling herself as a "neurotic southern belle" and a "manic prairie dream girl" - Olivia takes her influence from classic country and folk acts like Dolly Parton, Lee Hazelwood, and Nancy Sinatra. While the musical style evokes those artists, Lurrie's lyrics describe more modern anxieties about heartbreak and self-discovery. On Babies' latest album "Better Than Before", Lurrie sings almost autobiographically about a young country singer breaking out of a tumultuous relationship and leaving her small town to find success in the big city. 

Babies' Babies will play Alphaville on May 5th; the band will consist of Lurrie and her backing group, known as "Always Waitin' On The Man". Also on the bill: Lo-fi artist Dark Tea, country-synth performer Dougie Poole, and North Carolina-based band Drag Sounds. Stream Babies' Babies' latest single, "Small Town Syndrome", below. - Will Sisskind
