Deli sponsored series The Hum returns on Monday 05.15 at Good Room with Elysse, Brittany Campbell and more

The two wonderful soul voices of Elysse and Brittany Campbell will be among the sound you'll hear reverberating this coming Monday May 15 at Greenpoint's Good Room during the third appointment with the Deli-sponsored, LPR Presents organized concert series The Hum. While we covered Campbell at length (she was on the cover of our magazine last year), Elysse is a new face in the NYC scene, and a very promising one. The only track she has currently available online showcases a delicately expressive artist supported by an uber-intriguing production that strikes a balance between classic soul and trippy, Lynchian atmospheres.

Check out the full list of Monday's collaborations, tickets can be found here:

Caroline Rose + Zoe Brecher (Sad13) + Noga Shefi + Joy Morales ///
Little Kruta + H3R ///
Brittany Campbell + Maya Lazaro + Kate Ferber ///
Joy Elysse + Bria Monet + Adi Meyerson + Taylor Zaro + Savannah Harris  ///

Bringing the heat of blues rock to Brooklyn, Revel in Dimes plays BK Bowl on 05.17

"If the delta blues gave birth to yet another slew of gold records why wasn't anyone dancing?" The question posed in the bio on Revel in Dimes' website hints that their music aims to get you up on your feet, swaying to dark, textured rhythms. Half of this is true - I did find my feet tapping along to the drum kit, but instead of the grit you might expect, the band's sound has a smooth quality to it, that doesn't interfere with its energy and power. Though Revel in Dimes hails from Brooklyn, the percussive elements on "Runnin'" are warm and wispy, reminiscent of a hot summer afternoon somewhere Southern. Catch the heat at their live show at Brooklyn Bowl with The Yeahtones on May 17th. - Geena Kloeppel

Obliques bring loungy pop to Berlin on 05.23

Obliques is the project of New Yorkers Zach Van Hoozer and Ben Flesch. The duo is adopting the marketing technique of depriving the press of their head shots, replacing it with tasteful graphics. Their smooth and well produced pop-soul features an interesting balancing act between the soulful and passionate but clean vocal melodies and the edgy distorted guitar parts. Single Lightweight (streaming below) perfectly exemplifies this dynamic, which is in all likelihood the sign of a healthy collaboration. This is definitely a band worth checking out when they play at Berlin on May 23rd.

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

Green Noise Reopens, Celebrates with DJs and Live Music

Portland is the kind of place where vinyl appreciation is taken seriously amongst much of the masses. While we've lost some of our beloved record shops, the few that are still around are special places that see much business at times other than just Record Store Day. Green Noise Records has lasted throughout the years, changing locations a couple times since its original southeast locale, but they've found yet another new up in northeast that they're celebrating throughout the weekend.

Starting today, Green Noise is hosting their own sort of welcoming party, slated with sets from djs and bands alike. Most of today's festivities, which started around noon, are dj sets. Patrons are invited to peruse the shop's offerings while enjoying records spun by djs like Vera Rubin, Erich Zann and Ken Dirtnap, or tomorrow's live performances from EMS, Low Culture and Davey Quinn

Admission is free and if you scope a few records you'd like to pick up, everything is 15% off the whole weekend. Come check out Green Noise's new space, some awesome bands and djs, and some new vinyl sounds as well.
