Jaye Bartell brings his moody folk to Baby's All Right on 10.16

Jaye Bartell's "Light Enough" is a record born out of a very particular kind of self-inflicted seclusion: the paradoxical one happening in one the most populated pieces of land in the world: Brooklyn. Somebody's referred to this phenomenon as "The Lonesome Crowded West." Greenpoint, specifically, is where the songwriter moved to in 2013, from Asheville, NC (he's originally from Massachusetts), looking - we assume - for inspiration after a series of early releases. The only embeddable song from the album, 'Laundry Line' (streaming) perfectly represent the full album, echoing at once Leonard Cohen's intimate existentialism and Syd Barrett's droney, suspended melodies (Barrett's fans should check out opener 'G & Me'). The mostly acoustic guitar work also deserves a mention, for its beautiful simplicity. The fact that Baby's All Right booked Jaye is an extra reason to pay attention to this artist, so you may want to check out his upcoming show on October 16.

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

Shoegaze bill at Mercury on 10.09 with Infinity Girl and Mahogany

Having released their second full length album “Harm” in the summer of 2015, Brooklyn’s Infinity Girl can be found hard at work on their third record. Although no release date has been announced as of yet, the band continue to play select live shows. On Sunday 10/9 they’ll step away from the studio long enough to play a set at the Mercury Lounge, supporting fellow dreamgazers Astrobrite (from Chicago) and ever-evolving headline act Mahogany. While “Harm” shifted away from than their previous noisier work, elements of the C86 jangle pop sound emerged. “Dirty Sun” underscores exactly what was (and still is) so appealing about this timeless sound. A blissful joy is conveyed by the convergence of rapidly strummed guitar over melody driven bass and fast, tom-tom heavy drums. The vocals provide the emotional release through a harmonic beauty evoking feelings of both nostalgia and present day comradery. While waiting for new music to be released, lovers of this should shouldn't miss Sunday's show. - Dave Cromwell
