Deli Portland gems to dominate the Doug Fir for record release

The Doug Fir will be host to a lineup comprised of some the Deli's Portland's most prized artists tomorrow. The Cabin Project are having their record release show for the new Unfolded, joined by Deli Portland Artist of the Year for 2015 Coco Columbia and the instrumentally dynamic and colorful Human Ottoman.

The orchestral pop of The Cabin Project boasts grand choruses and harmonies paired with scopic string sections, manifesting a desirably mellow affect that landed them the runner up slot in the Deli's Year End polls. Katie Sawicki, the Brooklynite that founded The Cabin Project, developed her vision over the last near decade by injecting an intimacy of poetically heartfelt lyrics paired with a musical output that's just as affectionate. Now joined by Zanny Geffel and Rebekah Hanson, The Cabin Project's full sound translates into an ornate projection on all members' innermost emotions.

Unfolded is the third release from The Cabin Project and promises to be the most sentimental yet. "[Unfolded is] an album about despair, loss, hope, freedom, heartache, justice and love.  We hope that our listeners will connect with the words and feelings of this record and believe that it is catharsis for all who have felt these universal feelings within their own journeys through life," the band states on album's intent.

Coco Columbia's angelic jazz pop fills an empty pocket in Portland's rock dominated music scene, while Human Ottoman's revived take on the typical instrumental makeup of a band (using only a cello, vibraphone and drums) is sonically raucous.

An album stream for The Cabin Project's Unfolded will be available on the Deli Portland site before the release show tomorrow, so be sure to familiarize yourself before you see it live at this Deli endorsed event.

Half Waif celebrate release of "Probable Depths" LP at Baby's All Right on 05.12

Combining pop sensibilities with the classical textures of violins and twinkling pianos, Brooklyn’s beguiling trio, Half Waif, sends un on a dazzling journey in her album Probable Depths - which we had the chance to preview, or rather, pre-hear. With swelling vocals, billowing synths, and blinking electronic melodies that lull us into a dream, the album is both achingly private and daringly open, as if each song was a stolen glance into Plunkett’s sonic world, each painting an acutely fine and deliberate stroke of her emotive life. A mellifluous pirouette of musical resplendence, Half Waif’s Probable Depths is an aural triumph set to be released on May 6. Catch Half Waif at Baby’s All Right on May 12 for their album release show and tour kick-off. - Adriana S Ballester, photo by Adan Carlo.

Joan as a Police Woman, Okay Kaya and Kelsey Lu play at The Hum on Sunday with many other NYC female artists

We've been big fans of Brooklyn based Norvwegian songwriter Okay Kaya since we saw her first video for single 'Damn Gravity,' released in the spring of 2015. We've been missing her live a couple of times (she cancelled a CMJ show on us in 2015, and we didn't cath her at SXSW in 2016, so we won't miss the oportunity to see her at The Deli's sponsored appointment with The Hum, this Sunday April 24th at Greeinpoint's Manhattan Inn, when she will be playing a semi-improvisational set with Aerial East and Kelsey Lu. We are also happy to report that she has released some new material earlier this year, which showcases a welcome orchestral development of her uber-sparse style - check out single Keep On Pushin', streaming below.

Kelsey Lu (pictured) is a NYC based artist we've never covered before that is also worthy of attention. Born in Charlotte, NC, this classically trained cellist plays with Solange among others, although her own music flirts with ambient and experimental tendencies.

At The Hum this Sunday you'll also be able to see  Joan Wasser of Joan As Police Woman (who needs no presentation) in a set with drummer Jordyn Blakely (of Stove) and Noga Shefi of Zula, who will also share the stage with Taiwanese vibraphonist Yuhan Su in a separate set. 

This is the last appointment with The Hum, a series The Deli has been sponsoring for the second year in a row - you can read about past showcase previews here.
