LEGS brings infectious indie dance music to Mercury Lounge on 9/10

It can be universally agreed upon that sometimes we just need to dance it out.  The Brooklyn-based band, LEGS, is here to provide a cure for those days when we’re feeling the urge to move. Their single, “Top of The World” holds true to its name, with its six minutes of infectious, mood lifting disco and synth beats.  Channeling some nostalgic dance vibes from the '70s yet infused with a modern aesthetic, Legs is guaranteed to cause the tapping of feet.  The band also claims to make you feel anything from “athletic” to “sexy” to “nocturnal,” which bodes well for a night out - the next opportunity to see them live is at Mercury Lounge on September 10th. - Madeleine Grossman

The Deli's Record of the Month: Gabriel Royal

Regulars of the Bedford L stop in Williamsburg will recognize Royal as the cello-wielding busker whose sweet sound floats wistfully over the cavernous train station. His debut, self titled LP captures the live set's melange of quarter-note triplets and mellow tenor vocals. Opener “G Major Suite” finds Royal crooning manifesto couplets like, “Let's just make one thing this clear.” “Say It's Right” and “Past the Flowers” continue the dulcet pace with aplomb; only “Morning Baby” and “So Glad to See You” depart from the baroque-soul formula, marrying delicate balladry to angst-driven lyrics like “I'm about to lose my mind” and a dropping of the F-bomb.

Gus Dapperton releases new single + visual, plays Baby's All Right on 9/15

In his past efforts, Warwick's Gus Dapperton has mostly paired his RnB vocals with standard instrumental arrangements, whether it be the guitar-driven "Moodna, One With Grace" or jazzy "These Foolish Things." Synths have been present on previous tracks, but usually only to provide textures or atmospheric effects. On his latest "Ditch" however, retro '80s synths, the kind you might find on a SNES game, are the driving force of the track. Providing a nice touch of nostalgia, the synths are woozy, cerebral but ultimately rendered stable by GD’s smooth vocals and a nice snare beat. It’s great to see Gus change up his sound, and in a way that's imaginative and effective. You can check out his new vid below, and catch him at Baby’s All Right on 9/15. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Sanctuary Sound plays Rockwood Music Hall on 8/26

Brooklyn-based band, Sanctuary Sound – the project of Cade Sadler – likes to play with expectations - and contrasts.  Single One Clear Thought (streaming) opens the band’s EP, Brass Ring, with electronic noises that sound like the start of something rather cerebral.  However, what follows is a muted and soulful synth pop track that's actually very emotional, and complimented by Sadler’s semi-whispered, fuzzy and reverbed voice.  Sanctuary Sound is playing at Rockwood Music Hall tonight (August 26th). - Madeleine Grossman
