Goldfeather celebrates release of 'Patchwork Quilt' at Rockwood on 09.19

With their elegant blend of bluegrass, folk, and chamber music, Brooklyn indie-folk band Goldfeather is on a mission to enchant you with a perfectly interlaced entourage of instruments. Sarah Goldfeather’s violin, Nathan Koci’s banjo and accordion, Dylan McKinstry’s mandolin, Katie Martucci’s guitar, and Pat Swoboda’s double bass surround the sweet-sounding vibrancy of Sarah’s vocals with  dream-like arrangements. The band’s signature three-part vocal harmony serves to heighten Sarah’s fluctuating melodies, resolve musical tension, and add a rich texture to the group's overall sound. You can experience Goldfeather live at Rockwood Music Hall on September 19th, when they'll celebrate the release of their debut album Patchwork Quilt. - Ashley E. Muniz

Criminally underrated NYC trio Superhuman Happiness play Rough Trade on 10.06

Brooklyn dance/elcctropop band Superhuman Happiness is the project of saxophonist Stuart Bogie, who has recently toured with Arcade Fire & Iron & Wine, and is also a member of Antibalas. The criminally underrated trio, plays imaginative avant-pop infused with strong percussive elements and - of course - a fair amount of brass. They released their most recent album Escape Velocity via Royal Potato Family in Sept. 2015 and are currently working on new music, and will be performing on October 6th at Rough Trade. Check out their latest two singles 'Drawing Lines' and 'Well, Well, Well,' streaming below.

Weyes Blood moves from NYC to LA, release singles "Do You Need My Love" and "Seven Words"

Straddling the line betweeen Otis Redding's soulful vintage pop and Nico's decadent, maudit songwriting, Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Merring, who recently relocated from NYC to LA) is certainly a singular talent. Gifted with an incredibly deep and expressive voice, until recently the singer songwriter performed solo on stage with just an acoustic guitar and a four track recorder playing anything from vintage sounding instrumental tracks to background noise, but she will be joined by a full band for her upcoming tour. Weyes blood recently unveiled two singles from her forthcoming album, Front Row Seat To Earth, titled "Seven Words" and “Do You Need My Love” (both streaming below). The latter, released a few days ago, struggles with impossible love, and the feedback loop that such a love engenders: the harder to grasp, the easier to let oneself slide into unchecked romance. Angelinos will be able to catch her at The Resident on September 15th, while New Yorkers who missed her performance at Rough Trade this weekend will get another chance on November 10th at The Park Church Co-op.

Henry Hall releases video for 'More Tiny' + starts Bowery Electric residency tonight

We've talked about Henry Hall's versatility before here at the Deli, but the NYC artist keeps impressing us in how often he manages to redefines himself. Hall worked on the Introduction EP with electronic producer Ellis, and the result was five tracks of soulful vocals supported by soaring, and at times poppy electronic arrangements. Recently, he has released a video for one of those tunes, "More Tiny," where Hall is singing around Times Square masked by various Snapchat filters. It's one of those videos that's either meant to be deeply symbolic or sardonically funny, but either way it suits the track well - check it out below. Henry Hall will kick off a monthly residency at The Bowery Electric tonight (09.07). — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Arc Iris tour the US and UK and EU + talk about gear on Delicious Audio

Arc Iris was started by Jocie Adams (formerly of The Low Anthem) as a solo project in 2012 before enlisting the help of Zach Tenorio-Miller on keyboards and Ray Belli on drums, and in 2014 they released their genre bending debut that was influenced by everything from folk and country to jazz and cabaret. Their upcoming album Moon Saloon takes on a darker and more mysterious atmosphere, while continuing to use bold classical arrangements that make their sound unique. Their complexly composed songs feature a wide array of instruments and tender vocal harmonies that shape the band’s ethereal sound. The band is about to leave for an over a month long tour in the US and Europe. In anticipation of Moon Saloon's release on August 19th via Bella Union, our friends at Delicious Audio asked the band's keyboardist, Zach, about the band's gear and creative process - see link below.

Delicious Audio interview with Arc Iris.
