New Track: "Saturday (Umm)" - Fossil Jane

Olivia Price, a.k.a. Fossil Jane, recently shared a new track, “Saturday (Umm)”. The initial start of a synth beat is rounded into form by keys and guitar as the softly delivered vocals swim overtop. Sorting through a series of thoughts, it seems to capture a waking dream state. (Photo by Brian Walker)

Bryant Eugene Vazquez Invoking the Spirit of Early 90's Shoegaze at The Pharmacy Oct. 9

Bryant Eugene Vazquez delves into the darker depths of noise on his new album, Grey Expectations. Invoking the spirit of early 90's shoegaze, Vazquez resuscitates the genre with a fury and piousness that makes The Church sound like “Joy to the World” sang by a choir of castratos - pure grit that spits in your face and then lovingly wipes it away with a black velvet handkerchief. Always a conceptual artist, Bryant Eugene Vazquez's Grey Expectations is the second in a trilogy of albums that explore various genres and do so in a thoughtful manner. Vazquez will be performing this evening at The Pharmacy, where he’ll be joined by Chicago’s Absolutely Not, Janelle, Altes Shwert, and Glazer. The Pharmacy, 1300 S. 18th St., 7pm, $5-$7, All Ages - Keith Kelley

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!
