Buzz Alert: L'Freaq unveils video for "Moonlight," announces "Weird Awakenings" EP

We've been saying for years that female indie musicians have, on average, been producing a lot more interesting material than their dude conterparts, and L'Freaq, the project of bicoastal electronic singer songwriter Lea Cappelli, is another piece in the truly beautiful puzzle representing NYC women's musical output in the new millennium. After releasing the delicate yet edgy electro-soul ballad "Weird Awakenings," the artists has recently unveiled a darker (and even edgier) single/video combo with  "Moonlight" - streaming below. Channeling the experimental, noir ballads of Portishead, the track features a deceivingly sparse arrangement, blending a killer plodding and synchopated rhythm section with ever-evolving, ambient electronic soundscape. Lea's vocals not only confirm her noteworthy pipes and silky tone, but also reveals her ability to convey character to a performance and "play" the song's part, a trait only few musical performer possess. Don't miss her next live performance at Rockwood on February 2nd.

Fawns of Love release kaleidoscopic video for new single "Mournful Eyes"

Fawns of Love celebrate the beautiful ties that keep us connected on "Mournful Eyes." The married duo of Jenny and Joseph Andreotti's latest single expresses an almost subconscious antipathy in our lack of human connection, and how the possibility to change that mindset is always within our grasp. The darkly poppy track sounds like a long lost coldwave hit, where Jenny's beatific vocals echo over a soft blanket of transfixing synth lines. On the accompanying video, a series of visually inventive animated images create a dark lit mood fit for a dance floor projection. 

"Mournful Eyes" is the second single off of Fawns of Love's forthcoming sophomore release, Permanent, which comes out on January 18 via Test Pattern Records. Juan Rodríguez

Maiah Manser releases new single "Yards," performs at the Hi Hat tonight

Maiah Manser began her musical journey in Seattle, Washington, but fortunately for us at The Deli, and you, the people, she has settled here in Los Angeles. “Yards” is Manser’s newest single, and boy does she have a lot to say. A final triumphant ‘f-you’ to the ex, “I don’t need you to survive” and “sorry that I’m not sorry” is just a taste of bittersweet goodbyes to the one who clearly didn’t deserve her. I want “Yards” played during my next breakup if I ever drastically and dramatically quit my job during a car chase while I am cooking breakfast, and definitely during a slow-motion shot of me flipping my hair to a random stranger (thank you, next). Funny how certain songs can make you feel uplifted and powerful with just one listen, and that is exactly what Maiah Manser did with this single. This pop-tastic jam will leave you hitting repeat until your next relationship. 

Feel free to hover over that replay button until 8 pm tonight because Manser will be playing at The Hi Hat with Lily Waters and Precious Kid, so don’t miss out on this bombshell of a performance. Kayla Hay

Young Jesus play homecoming show at Moroccan Lounge on 12/15

Earlier this year, Young Jesus graced us with their breakthrough second effort The Whole Thing is Just There. Equal parts complicated and tuneful, the post-rock meets indie rock four-piece delivered a grand, sweeping statement that handles its broad tonal shifts with admirable confidence. It kind of snuck up on the release docket during the month of October, though thankfully, the passage of time has only revealed the album's intricate treasures. From the heady, spiraling transitions of "Saganism vs. Buddhism" to the dissonant chords progressions of "Bell," the band is sure to thrill audiences with their forthcoming homecoming performance at the Moroccan Lounge on December 15.
