BAERD release challenging new single “If All Goes As Planned”

Following the release of “Out Of The” in late 2017, Boston folk collective BAERD have returned with a sonically ambitious new single titled “If All Goes As Planned”. BAERD, fronted by singer/guitarist Isaiah Baerd, have a penchant for composing progressive, and often times challenging neo-folk music, evocative of modern new wave folk bands like Fleet Foxes and Sufjan Stevens. “If All Goes As Planned” plays out as more of a score than a song, jumping between mixed meters and instrumental swells accompanying Baerd’s whimsical growl. Both “Out Of The” and “If All Goes As Planned” are featured singles from BAERD’s forthcoming full length album Crete, due to arrive this Summer. Check out “If All Goes As Planned” below. -Charley Ruddell

Dirty Bird bring their orchestral folk to #WomenCrush at Rockwood 1/31

Dirty Bird's latest single, "Towers," will catch you off-guard.  "Towers" is a juicy, upbeat indie folk tune with a striking, purposeful arrangement and stellar vocal harmonies. Melodically, instrumentally, and vocally, this band is getting everything right. The recording is so delightful that I'm intrigued to hear them bring their music to life on the stage. You can catch them live as part of the #WomenCrush NYC showcase, an organization that provides opportunities for rising female artists in the music industry, at Rockwood Music Hall on January 31st. -Geena Kloeppel

Q.D. Tran's Favorite Philly Albums of 2017

We are here once again at The Deli Philly’s final post of the year. It’s been an honor getting a chance to share new music with all of you this past year (and nearly a decade), and I look forward to continuing to discover the best of Philly’s underground music community with you. And without any further ado, here is my “Best of” year-end list for my favorite Philly albums of 2017. I look forward to seeing you on the other side.

Much love – cheers!

Q.D. Tran

 

1. Raw Rock Fury (Relapse) – Ecstatic Vision

Ecstatic Vision weren’t joking when they decided to name their latest album, Raw Rock Fury. There are few, if not any Philly releases that can match the pure intensity and glorious shredding found on my favorite local release of 2017. And it also provides you a glimpse into the awesomeness of their live performances.

2. Rocket (Domino) – (Sandy) Alex G

With Rocket, Alex Giannascoli proves that all the adoration from the media for the young songwriter is certainly not unfounded. Using the guise of an Americana framework, he is able to craft wonderfully intimate campfire songs that make left turns at all the right places.

 

3. Veblen Death Mask (Kill Rock Stars) – Taiwan Housing Project

Veblen Death Mask is music without boundaries – so chaotically beautiful!

4. Need to Feel Your Love (Wilsuns RC) – Sheer Mag

All riffs and vocals – garage-punks Sheer Mag make their retro-fit sound oh so good. Rock ‘n’ roll is not dead.

5. Out in the Storm (Merge) – Waxahatchee

Waxahatchee’s earnest songwriting speaks right to the heart, and it’s hard to ignore.

I, Alexander's "Sturdy Thoughts" is sweetly mysterious

Eyes wide open and hands in the air, I, Alexander brings back some of the best parts of numerous Justin Vernon projects in his new song and music video "Sturdy Thoughts." You can hear the Bon Iver and Volcano Choir influences right off the bat, in the sweet, tender vocals and lucid, folksy acoustic guitars. But unexpectedly and impressively, orchestral textures meander in, lifting the song into exquisitely stunning territory. A beautiful string and flute arrangement weaves through the song, helped by a gentle piano. The video itself is mystifying, with a haunting silhouette of the artist projected on top of leaves and sparks flying. I, Alexander's self-titled debut is out January 12th on Susan Records. -Geena Kloeppel

Get lost in the solemn landscape of BAERD’s newest single, “Out Of The”

BAERD is a seven piece progressive-folk outfit most known for their expansive arrangements and chilling atmosphere. On their newest single, “Out Of The”, the celestial atmosphere of the song hovers gently above the group’s traditionally Americana foundation, while utilizing breathy orchestral arrangements reminiscent of Radiohead’s In Rainbows. The result is a fresh, transcendent revitalization of new age folk music. Stream the track below. -Charley Ruddell
