Pyramid Thieves remain faithful to their sound in new record, play Boston City Hall Plaza 09.28

After teasing us with their synth-pop single “Scenes” earlier this year, Boston’s Pyramid Thieves, at last, have released their 2019 record Century Fader. The brand new LP is what you have come to expect from the electric group: a rich blend of indie rock grit and pop chic that is finished off with a teaspoon of new wave honey. Songs like “Thunder” showcase just the type of rich atmospheres the band can create, ones thick with marvelous basslines, supple synth melodies, and sustained guitar chords that float about. Then you have tracks like “Hang Around” which pay tribute to ‘80s synth-pop legends like Pet Shop Boys with their grandiose style. The group has crafted a record that is faithful to them and those that love them; it is refined enough to feel completely new. The band will be playing at the Boston City Hall Plaza on September 28th. We are streaming the groovy track “At The Aquarium” from the new record below. - Rene Cobar

A Deli Premiere: "Things That Are Broken" by Elodie

A journey that began at the age of 4 hits a milestone today for Boston’s indie-folk songstress Elodie: the eloquent songwriter’s debut EP Things That Are Broken is out now. From the start of the record, Elodie’s emotions are gracefully and honestly exposed via the retrospective lyrics that are sung with hard-charging passion in the choruses of “City Paved With Stone.” The rapid rhythm of the song’s climax sets the canvas for Elodie’s fierce melodic collage. “Face in the Mirror” treats the listener to beautiful string-instrument swells and warm piano notes that create the perfect atmosphere for Elodie’s vivid storytelling. “Motion Sickness” is a punchy track filled with melancholic sincerity that is led by Elodie’s intricate acoustic guitar work. “Something More” is Elodie’s vocal point of excellence, while the record’s closing track “(May You) Find Your Way” is a cheery folk send-off that wraps everything up beautifully. The singer-songwriter’s travels from her native New York to Boston and beyond have helped shape a journey that is ever-present in each of the tracks she has chosen to share. Those that have supported her, a those like us, who are fortunate to listen, cheer for a rising New England artist. Catch Elodie playing at the Lilypad Inman in Cambridge on October 4th. We are thrilled to premiere Things That Are Broken for you below. - Rene Cobar

Cosmic Analog Blue unleashes a sonic tornado in new single "Through the Underpass"

Cosmic Analog Blue is a group that cannot hide its exotic nature: the group’s charming-bizarre blend of country, rock, orchestral, and Americana is served real thick and chill. The band’s latest single “Through the Underpass” begins with relaxed acoustic guitar strums and twangy vocals that pave the way for grand string instrument swells and eruptive drums; all instruments rise in volume to create a sonic tornado you find yourself chasing. The breakdowns are exquisite and are telling of the Boston group's penchant for creativity and free-flow combined with the precise organization to make it all work. The funky group released a self-titled EP back in 2018, and if this new single is any indication, the group is heating up again. We are streaming “Through the Underpass” for you below. - Rene Cobar

Tate & Silas offer a heavy dose of indie-folk music, play Space Ballroom 10.05

Tate & Silas released their latest record Different Worlds back in June, and in doing so, they gifted the world with a pure and super-concentrated indie-folk alternative. The approach is simple: electric guitar strums so clean you can almost breathe them in like rich oxygen, and minimalist vocal deliveries that tell stories about town life. In songs like “Overblown” you have rapid and thumping rhythms that are sprinkled with rich piano notes, and in tracks like “Sick” just pure indie guitar-lick goodness. The duo from New Haven makes each track seamless as it moves on to the next without ever allowing for monotonousness to creep in; the fluidity of the music is a testament to their easy-listening approach that soothes. Tate & Silas are scheduled to play at the Space Ballroom in Hamden, CT on October 5th. We are streaming the title track below for your enjoyment. - Rene Cobar
