New Sad13 LP Available for Streaming

While Slugger, the new album from Sad13 (a.k.a. Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz), won’t be officially released via Carpark Records until November 11, it can currently be heard in advance below via NPR Music’s First Listen. These songs shimmer while delving into the incisive, relationship-detailing, personal anecdotes and exploring complex issues of gender roles, equality, marginalization, etc. It’s a bright collection of music illuminating big picture social issues through concise layers of lyrical depth. Sad13 will be performing next in Philly alongside Vagabon, Emily Reo, and Told Slant on Monday, December 12 at Everybody Hits. (Photo by Shervin Lainez)

PREMIERE: The Secret Sea - "My Beautiful Hell"

Today we're premiering the third single from The Secret Sea's U.S. debut and 7th album, Everest, which was recorded and mixed by Larry Crane of Jackpot! Studios.

His previous singles "Army of Souls" and "Canada" opened the door to the intimate confines of Amit Erez's soft acoustic world, but it's the thoughtful lyrics and imagery of "My Beautiful Hell" that takes us further and deeper into the revelation of his story.

Steadily rolling forward in a lush full-band arrangement, this song is the journey of a protagonist through his past and present, reflecting on events that shaped his life as an artist and as a person with haunting visuals and metaphors. Lyrically heavy, "My Beautiful Hell" pulls the listener into a hallucination, questioning the perceptions of home, happiness, and the endless chase after one's own calling. 

The track also features guest musicians Gil Assayas of GLASYS on keys and former Elliott Smith and current Eyelids drummer Paul Pulvirenti. 

Amit will be joined by a full band for the first time onstage for the album release show for Everest, taking place at the Liquor Store on November 16th. The show will also be a single release for Arrows in Orbit, along with a performance from GLASYS.

Limited edition cassettes with download codes from Dazzleships Records will also be sold at the show and Everest will be digitally available on all known platforms on Nov 15th, with a pre-order on iTunes from Nov 12th.

Frances Cone soars in The Deli's Charts, plays Baby's All Right on 11.07

We go a long way with Brooklyn songwriter Frances Cone - she played one of our SXSW shows back in 2013 - and it's great to see her climb our 'NYC New Bands With Buzz" top ten chart on this same page. After her 2013 debut album 'Come Back,' her releases have been somewhat sporadic, but high in quality. Earlier in 2016, her intimately atmospheric, slow burning single 'Arizona,' caused a stir on Spotify, approaching 4 million plays, and opening up a series of show opportunities in reputable venues all along the east coast, including a show at Music Hall of Williasburg on September 30th. Frances and her band's next show will be at Baby's All Right on 11.07.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best mellow songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

New Music Video: "Wish We Talked Still" - Hello Shark

Below is a new music video for the single, "Wish We Talked Still," by Hello Shark, a.k.a. Lincoln Halloran. Directed by Free Cake For Every Creature's Katie Bennett, the footage was shot on Super 8 film, casting a reflective, daydream haze over the city of Philadelphia and the video's cast of characters. The sentimental visual and audio coupling makes us long to reconnect with lost loves, though we all know that some things are best buried in the past in the back of our memories. You can find "Wish We Talked Still" on Hello Shark's latest LP, Delicate, out now via Orindal Records. (Photo by Abi Reimold)

Brooklyn’s Julia Weldon recovers from coma, kickstarts third album

Just as her 2013 album Light Is a Ghost was making its way from ear to ear, Julia Weldon fell in a coma shortly after receiving gender-affirming surgery, while she was working on her third album. Luckily, she recovered, and, since then, this high-powered Brooklynite has been back at it with an audience-supported Kickstarter campaign now up and running to fund the recording and production of her long awaited third release. Honest, intense, joyous, and haunting, Julia is finding inspiration in this near-death experience and we are curious to see how she will integrate them in her new songs. Take part in her journey by joining the Kickstarter campaign and coming to see her perform at Rockwood Music Hall on November 2nd, where she’ll give a sneak peak of her latest compositions. - Ashley Muniz
