One of our favorite artists here at the Deli has been busy overseas. Laura Cole brought her sultry voice (and bass player) over the UK to work with Harvey Summers on a new record. They just finished a tour of the UK to celebrate and promote the release of this brand new album "Human". The first single released was called "Skeletons" and it's right up Laura's alley. It's a funky lounge tune that we know from Laura but with an added horn section to spice it up. She is back in Canada and ready to release this brand new album on Thursday June 23rd at Lula Lounge in Toronto. - Kris Gies


Emily Jane White plays the Elbo Room - 06/22

The Oakland based artist, Emily Jane White will be performing live at Elbo Room on June 22nd to support her upcoming album, They Moved in Shadow All Together LP.

They Moved in Shadow All Together was recorded at Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco, CA, and New and Improved studio in Oakland, CA, between December 2013 and September 2015. Emily Jane White is a musician, songwriter, and poet from Oakland, CA. White’s new body of work recounts for us the terrain of her empathic inner world. The breadth and depth of her maturing voice are evident. Her layered vocals effect a sense of camaraderie, a space populated with voices, angelic perhaps, definitively ethereal. She studied classical singing while working on this album, which enabled her to broaden her vocal range.


8-bit crEEps

8-bit CrEEps have released a new single called "New Zoo". The young band combine a variety of synth sounds with aggressive rock-based guitars.


Plastic Picnic brings brings their laid-back pop to Rough Trade on 7/15

Plastic Picnic’s light indie pop is the result of two duos – Lute and Panerio, and Hunt and Taylor – coming together with compatible musical talents. The Brooklyn-based quartet's name doesn't quite capture the essence of their music, which, although incorporating synths, doesn't sound as synthetic as the word 'plastic' would make one think. On the other hand, single Nausea in Paradise (streaming), would work nicely as a picnic soundtrack - notwithstanding the not very appetizing title.  Fans of sophisticated '80s pop like Prefab Sprout should check these guys out at Rough Trade on July 15th.  - Madeleine Grossman 


Bent Knee release new album, 'Say So'

Bent Knee keeps going bigger and bolder with each project they release.  Never being afraid to blend genres before, on Say So the six-piece Boston band embarks on a sprawling musical journey that seems to hit every stop on the pop-avant garde spectrum. Not discrediting the band's impressively diverse instrumental arrangements, frontwoman and keyboardist Courtney Swain's cinematic vocals stand out as the sound's core. Whereas the instruments and sounds around her are constantly changing, Swain's voice provides an anchor that never lets the band's complex sound descend into unruly juxtaposition of elements. Bent Knee are about to go on a North American and European tour to promote 'Say So'. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber
