Strawberry Runners play Trans Pecos on 10.22 + talk about pedals on Delicious Audio

There’s a certain overarching sweetness that consumes the Denver/New York-based group, Strawberry Runners, but a close listen will reveal a far more complicated sound. The pop-driven arrangements and saccharine melodies support lyrics filled with darkness -a juxtaposition that's at once uplifting and upsetting. The band recently released a new EP entitled "In the Garden, In the Night." Emi Night, the singing-songwriting force behind this project, is very much into stompboxes and our friends at Delicious Audio asked her some questions about it.

 

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best indie songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Jill Peacock serves up soulful electro tunes + plays Pianos on 10.22

NYC transplant (by the way of Toronto), Jill Peacock, may not have the ostentatious fervor of the bird who shares her name, but her music might give you a reason to strut like one. Her self-titled EP is 5-tracks worth of engaging soul-pop that prominently displays her effortless vocals against minimalist R&B instrumentals. It's a release that will tempt even the most rigid listeners to head-bob along to the velvety beats. Stream her single "Sunshine," streaming below, and see her live at Pianos on October 22nd. -Olivia Sisinni

Emily Yacina brings soft, dreamy bedroom pop to the Park Church Co-op on 10.27

New York college student Emily Yacina has been quietly uploading music to Bandcamp since 2011, making her part of what’s becoming – for better or for worse-- a somewhat ubiquitous subgenre of bedroom pop: DIY dream-writers. But unlike a lot of those artists, Yacina actually leaves her bedroom. And she gets pretty far, like all the way to Alaska far. That’s where she lived this summer, working at an environmental nonprofit. Her most recent release “Heart Sky” reflects that; it’s expansive but intimate, vast but quaint, like the state that inspired it. It’s wandering melodies most likely mirror her exploration of the state, and most definitely mirror our exploration of the album. She'll be performing live at a very interesting event inside a New York church on October 27th with like-minded artists Florist and Lizard Kisses. It seems like the ideal setting for music that's this quiet and intimate. - Rachel Kerr

Benjamin Cartel to release album at Rockwood Stage 3 on 10.21

Fresh off of an appearance on WFMU's The Goddamn Dave Hill Show, Benjamin Cartel returns to Rockwood on October 21st to release his newest album, Flickering Light. The record contains more of the indie sound which propelled Cartel's songwriting and musical abilities to the eyes and ears of New York audiences as a solo artist and as a member of his duo, Kaiser Cartel. Cartel will play Stage 3 with his band; Violet Skies, soul artist Arthur Lewis, and the Andre Carvalho Group will open. Watch the video for "Down Now", a single from Flickering Light, below. - Will Sisskind
