ICYMI: Gorgeous release Gorgeous

Oakland’s Gorgeous released Gorgeous this fall and we just want to give an extra shout out to the band. They’ve got a funny B-52’s vibe but with a poppier, modern clever feel we dig on hard. Where are the shows, girls? We are ready, Freddy. -Lucille Faulkner





Sargasso debuts retro-escapist self-titled record

Connecticut, and New England, for that matter, never stops surprising with its rich crop of talented artists. New Haven’s Sargasso is a collective that dips its indie rock in sugary electro-R&B for a sound so dreamy-seductive sweet. The group’s self-titled EP opens with brilliantly soft electric guitar strings and a stout bassline that transport one to a world desired, one of serene indie rock. “One Enemy” with its sustained synth notes and relaxed vocals, is more than an opener, it is a solid statement by a group defining its signature sound. The record’s second track, “Secret Compartment,” expands on the band’s strengths as it delivers rich vocal harmonies that melt to a hot groove, irresistible and soothing. Songs like “Lifetime” surrender to both Strokes-y guitar riffs and blossoming synth melodies with a retro glaze. The record flirts with escapist themes, and it is that tease with complete dreaminess that makes the album such a treat. Listen to the ‘70s space flick intro of “Secret Compartment” from the new record streaming below. - Rene Cobar, photo by Xinyuan Chen  





A Deli Premiere: "Jimmy Rover" by Fire in the Field

For listeners familiar with Fire in the Field’s funky and upbeat style, a sonic treat awaits, surprisingly tame but deeply wild. “Jimmy Rover” showcases the band’s appreciation for the slow-cooking nature of the blues as it lets its normally dance-inducing guitar riffs build slowly, ripping on occasion to smooth vocals from lead singer Mike Moore who is committed to storytelling. As the guitar solos shred, at high-voltage, one is reminded of the band’s old-school passion and youthful energy: Fire in the Field has a strong essence of classic rock. During the song’s final breakdown, the bass and drums lock-in even in their euphoric state to complement the song, which echoes the beauty and grit of Chicago blues. Recorded, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jay Frigoletto at Oak Hill Music in Brookline, NH, this latest single by the band offers something wholly different from its usual style, but remains a track that fits perfectly into the band’s archives. We are thrilled to premiere “Jimmy Rover” for you below; catch Fire in the Field at Bishop’s Lounge in Northampton, MA, on Dec 14th. - Rene Cobar

Kelly English debuts serene single "Errors of My Ways," plays Urban Lodge Brewing 12.15

For singer-songwriter talent, such as Connecticut’s Kelly English, words seem to come easy, and they use them to express with sincerity their ups and their downs. In English’s latest piece, “Errors of My Ways,” she lets the gentle strings of her acoustic guitar and her graceful vocals tell a story of acceptance and forgiveness. The track never needs to stray from its serene mood, because it soothes and empowers with its honest emotion. English, who normally swims in alt-pop waters, takes a stroll around the shorelines of folk music to deliver an enchanting composition that is short but lasting in memory. Kelly will be performing at the Urban Lodge Brewing Co. in Manchester, CT on Dec 15th. Stream “Errors of My Ways” below to welcome the evening softly. - Rene Cobar
