A Deli Premiere: LittleBoyBigHeadonBike's 100th Release 'Big Blue Butterflies'

LittleBoyBigHeadonBike, otherwise known as Will Orchard, may just be New England DIY’s most prolific songwriter. The Rhode Island native has roughly 500 songs available online, spread between 99 EPs and LPs. That would make his new album Big Blue Butterflies number 100. Very few artists boast such a wide discography, and even fewer can be proud of all their releases. But that's what makes this album exceptional. Rich with his usual whimsy — most apparent in the arrangments, which make full use of synths and the harmonica — and embedded with simple and vulnerable lyricism that could give early Death Cab a run for its money, this album shows the portrait of an artist in the midst of maturation. In this release, Orchard is exposed, but he is also careful — these are no random thoughts or loose strings. Once again, through the project LittleBoyBigHeadonBike, Will Orchard has proven that even when things fall apart, a few poignant lyrics may be enough to make the center hold. LittleBoyBigHeadonBike is kicking off a tour with an album release party at Columbus Theatre in Providence on June 28 at 7 p.m. - Lilly Milman, photo by Nicholas Lussier

New Cheeky EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Kaylee Sabatino, a.k.a. Cheeky, just dropped her new EP Flora. Sleek vocals coupled with late-night beats curate a mysterious, dance-generating ambiance. Forging fresh air and spacial mobility, the songs mix a bouncy brightness with a contemplative darkness. Guided by the groove, one can follow it down the rabbit hole of discovery.





Sinnet releases music video for "Part of Yourself" & plays Lizard Lounge (6.30)

It’s hard to believe that the moody indie outfit Sinnet started in a bedroom on the laptop of Aaron Spransy not too long ago — given the band’s refined aesthetic, obvious chemistry, and knack for inventive songwriting — but that’s how the story goes. Boston’s favorite fuzz-rockers released the official music video for single “Part of Yourself” (streaming below) and, once again, it is a quirky project that impresses and leaves a lasting memory. Check out the video below, and see Sinnet play live at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge on June 30. - Lilly Milman





Dance a Lot, Cry a Little with Maarquii

Maarquii has been making a huge splash in the Portland music scene. Their second EP Lullaby in Gemini came out February 2017, and there’s a reason it’s gotten the attention it has. Maarquii lives in a very fast world, but they slow it down with their music. Their song “2chill” brings up images of bodies dancing in slow motion, bathed in dusky neon lights. The jazzy, R&B elements of their music combine well with the pulsing and heavy club-inspired beats. The jazz influence in their hip hop sound contributes towards a more mellow, sophisticated and mournful tone that makes single "Mizz Communication" especially poignant. Maarquii will be at the Doug Fir Lounge on July 6th with Karma Rivera, Fountaine, and Empress.
