Deli Premiere: Louis Apollon Releases Video for New Single, You Are a Dream

 We come across a lot of great vocalists here, at The Deli, but few invoke the classic soul-vibe quite like Boston singer-songwriter Louis Apollon.  A recent Berklee grad, Louis is preparing to release his debut album, Free To Be, in September.  The album "explores all there is to the human experience through short stories and experiences".  Fortunately for us, we don't have to wait until the fall for a taste of the new record.  The first single, "You Are a Dream", embodies the character of 70s soul giants, like Al Green, with Louis' own jazz/folk flavor.  Louis' voice has a soothing quality, his dulcet tones blending with the no-less-impressive fingerwork of his guitar.  With the help of Aleif Hamdan on guitar, Achal Murthy on bass, and Kaushlesh Purohit on cajon (who also engineered the track), Louis creates a nostalgically romantic musical venture, a balance of simplicity and technical prowess.  Check out the video below and catch Louis at The Midway Cafe on May 22. -Brian Varneke

Single Girl, Married Girl premieres video for 'Spark,' release show at Rockwood on 05.18

Singer Chelsey Coy is a vintage vision in the black and white video for Single Girl, Married Girl's title song off of their new LP, "Spark." The clips move between riverside shots, the occasional "look up" moment at the city's famed skyscrapers, green spaces among the concrete and the typical West Village stoop... everything the average New Yorker might find "normal" suddenly gains wonder, awe and beauty. New York's prettier sides become a lovely, delicate backdrop for Coy's hollowed-out harmonies and sprite-like falsetto, moving into a primal rhythm section that echoes the rumble of the subway below. The band's new album, Spark, is out May 19, with a release show scheduled for May 18th at Rockwood Music Hall. - Geena Kloeppel

New Track: "Sun Drop" - Vita and the Woolf

Deep, ominous tones permeate in “Sun Drop,” the latest single from Vita and the Woolf. Featured on their forthcoming album Tunnels, which is set for release on June 16, the song lurks in the futuristic shadows as a percussive/bass/synth-harnessing sonic setting stirs up the pot, lighting the fuse for Jennifer Pague’s powerful, authoritative vocal display. Vita and the Woolf will be performing at Firefly next month.

New Video: "Yr Undertaker" (Live) - Shannen Moser

Singer-songwriter Shannen Moser is getting a vinyl release for her latest LP Oh, My Heart, due out June 16 via Lame-O Records. To get folks hyped about the upcoming release, she'll be sharing a series of performance videos that will take place throughout Philly. Below is the first where we find Moser serenading cars with a vunerable, stripped-down version of "Yr Undertaker" as they whiz by on Columbus Ave. You can also catch her live (minus the passing traffic) at Union Transfer on Wednesday, June 14 with Sorority Noise, Fort Wanderers, and The Obsessives
