Free jazz outfit Sudden Duo release compelling debut album “Frontier”

Sudden Duo, a Boston based free jazz/experimental project, is a collaboration between Dylan Sherry on saxophones and electronics and Chris Southiere on drums. The duo’s debut album Frontier is a minimal and abstract approach jazz, with little to no harmonic accompaniment to Sherry’s lone horn. The “freedom” of Frontier is refreshing; the inherent confines of harmonic chord structures are nonexistent, which allows Sherry and Southiere to have a healthy and honest pursuit towards both everything and nothing, and whatever is in between. Frontier, in all of it’s imaginative and compelling space, is like listening to the great Albert Ayler sit in on a Sun Ra drum track. -Charley Ruddell

Soulful G.R.J and the Recipe release debut live EP “Live in the Kitchen”

Soulful singer/songwriter Garrett Roy Jones, backed by a group called the Recipe, has released the strong live EP Live in the Kitchen, the band’s debut release. Jones, a talented character in Boston’s music scene, shows a brassy vocal ability similar to Melbourne’s Angus Leslie (of Sex on Toast), with a clear John Mayer influence in both composition and guitar performance. Fans of Destroyer’s lesser-avant material (Kaputt, Destroyer’s Rubies) will be sure to spot some familiar idiosyncrasies. Live in the Kitchen, accompanied by a stylish twenty-seven minute single shot video from Felipe Maldonado, is available on Youtube, Spotify, and Bandcamp. -Charley Ruddell

Hartford Rockers Queen Moo Play Great Scott 12.21

 Taking their name from the ruler of a mythical city and filling their songs with as much inventive songwriting sorcery as we can handle, Hartford rockers Queen Moo are a rare rock n roll force. The band's latest album, Mean Well, is an instant classic, with blisteringly dirty guitars, relentlessly catchy hooks, and pitch perfect, understated vocal performances. Combining the blunt emotional punch of emo/punk with elements of classic rock and jazz, Queen Moo is a band you will want to catch on their current tour. Check them out when they hit Great Scott on 12/21 with Prawn, People Like You, and Slingshot Dakota. -Brian Varneke

Lo-fi Psych project June Bloom release debut EP "Bloomin'"

Boston based songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Patrick Carr has embarked on a psychedelic solo venture called June Bloom. Carr, a keyboardist and vocalist for the eight-piece funk/soul group The New Review and jangle-pop rockers Brother Toaster, has channeled his fondness of lo-fi dream-pop, psychedelic, and folk music into the delightfully aloof debut EP entitled Bloomin’.

The EP’s jaunty opening track “Ponds” combines the airy charm of a Real Estate guitar riff with the meaty substance of a Fleet Foxes arrangement, while “Shores” roots its traditionally psych songwriting in Ariel Pink’s production chambers. Fans of left-of-the-dial records, from classics like The Zombies’ Odessey and Oracle or Syd Barrett’s The Madcap Laughs, to the contemporary torch bearers Kevin Parker and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, will be sure to take something great from June Bloom’s Bloomin’. -Charley Ruddell

Gianna Botticelli, AKA GHOST GRL, is a Boston based ambient indie rock artist from Boston, creating emotionally charged ballads and tackling mature subject matter. As a preview to her upcoming Winter tour, Gianna was gracious enough to give The Deli a sneak peak at her new single, "Holy". The song is a change of pace for GHOST GRL fans, maintaining the mellow qualities of her previous work, while adding a heavier orchestration. About the track, Gianna says, "I want it to represent the inner struggles everyone has to deal with. The ones you never want to really talk about."
