Pilot Violet celebrates release of 'Nite Farm' EP at Nublu on 5/31

The music found on Pilot Violet's new EP, "Nite Farm" is a well produced homage and revisit to the more soulful synthpop of the 80's. Each track on the seven-song project blends that era's simple synth patterns and beats with the cinematic vocals found in recent pop acts like CHRVCHES and The XX. On tracks like "Ordinary Day" the instrumentals are skimmed to their essentials, which serves as a nice contrast to the impassioned and emphatic vocals. Pilot Violet has a fresh sound, not because of its individual, recognizable components, but because of the inventive ways they are sewn together. You can listen to "Ordinary Day" below, and catch their new project live at Nublu on 5/31. – Henry Solotaroff-Webber

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

Jonathan Hoard Gives Soul a Whole New Flavor: Taste It at Arlene's Grocery on May 9th

If there’s one thing that R’n B aficionado J. Hoard has been able to showcase through his soulful catalogue is that instrumentation does not intimidate his craft one bit. Less experimental, but more ambitious, the new single “Sirens” sees the singer exploring religious themes with refreshing emotional depth, and a gospel-infused choral accompaniment guaranteed to impress. After debuting with the unconventional electro-jazzy rhythms of the his first collection, "Arctic," Hoard's music picked up momentum with last year's "Feel Good EP." Hoard is currently taking on the New York scene, with an upcoming gig at Rockwood Music Hall on Friday, May 19th, and a split show with fellow up-and-comers DDWhite, Joanna Taters, and All Be on June 9th at Arlene's Grocery. - Valentina Rocha
