New Track: "Happy New Year" - Mark Lanky

A few days ago, Mark Lanky released a new 3-song EP. Its title track, “Happy New Year,” is an open letter, reaching out to someone disconnected from a previous relationship. Casually moving down the road on the compact bass-n-drum vehicle with the whine of pedal steel filling the gaps, Lanky’s lingering sadness/regret resonates. He'll be pouring his heart out this evening at Ortlieb's on a split a billing with Sad Actor.

The Deli LA Premieres: Herbert Bail Orchestra, "Chains" (Video)

The joy and anguish of growing up is captured beautifully on Herbert Bail Orchestra's video for their latest single, "Chains." The Anthony Frattolillo-directed video, who is also the main songwriter of the group, follows the story of a young boy as he experiences significant life events with careful nuance, an attentive close-up into its subject matter with a warm sense of empathy. "Chains" is also a natural progression for the ten-piece ensemble, as it employs a gentle roots rock feel that's finely tailored with an attention to craft and collaboration.

"Chains" can be found on Herbert Bail Orchestra's second full-length effort, History's Made at Night. The group will be celebrating the release with an album release show at The Satellite tomorrow, January 11. Juan Rodríguez

Folk-pop duo Loveangelists inspire with uplifting ballads at Neck of the Woods (1/25)

In a DIY scene that often acts as a caricature of angst, anger, and disinterest, indie folk pop duo Loveangelists are fighting back by killing with kindness. The duo, made up of songwriters Nathan Dennen and Lisa Young, specialize in light, melodic ballads about empowerment. They seek to uplift with their music, with lyrics about loving more openly and coming together to make change—a message that comes across through supple harmonies and acoustic riffs. The Oakland duo just kicked off 2018 with a show at Hotel Utah, and are planning on playing more live shows as the year unwinds. Their next booked show at the moment is on January 25th at Neck of the Woods. - Lilly Milman

New Sandcastle EP Available for Streaming & Download

Sandcastle offers another gem in their latest EP Garnet; or, Swan but Not Forgotten (An Occult Romance). The collection is layered in renaissance-laced, acoustic glam rock that steps to the forefront. Placed somewhere between the sadness of romantic memories, the personal narratives are modernly interpreted from a Victorian perspective. It's an emotive-triggering, time-traveling fantasy.

Great New Emerging NYC Folk: Swimming Bell, Thelma, Pueblo, Hayes Peebles and Swoon Lake

Once again, 2017 was a year of experiments in modern folk music. Two NYC acts that pushed the boundaries of the genre and further defined the slightly fuzzy definition of neo-folk were Swimming Bell and Thelma. “The Golden Heart,” the former’s debut EP, carved fresh arrangements and harmonic material out of familiar instrumental textures. Thelma’s self-titled record meandered into darker lyrical and melodic territory, though with a consistent crystalline vocal perched atop often dissonant chords and rockier textures. That being said, Pueblo and Hayes Peebles, on the rootsier end of the spectrum, shone with stellar songwriting and nuanced arrangements, offering up an enlightening modern take on a more traditional sound. Pueblo released their flavorful record “Boring the Camera,” stirred memories of an electric Simon & Garfunkel. Hayes Peebles’ “Ghosts EP” offered breathtaking melodies with lush, sentient lyrics, while peppering in a twangy guitar or two. We also really enjoyed Swoon Lake's lush ballads from her sophomore self-titled EP, although the artist doesn't seem to be very active live. - Geena Kloeppel

Here's a playlist with a song each from these five artists.
