Breanna Barbara brings her folkedelic blues rock to Sunnyvale on 10.27

With her third release Mirage Dreams, Brooklyn-based (via Minnesota and Florida) Breanna Barbara has put out an uber confident record that defies time and space. Her peculiar blend of blues, folk, and psychedelia transports us to the west coast in the summer of 1968. Yet, the word revival sounds reductive here: behind the familiar overdriven organs, twangy guitars, and expanded jams, live rare intensity and power. The album title track (streaming below) perfectly examplifies this artist's - quite literally - howling fervor. Don’t miss your chance to see her live at Sunnyvale on October 27, where she'll bring her tales of melancholy dreams, delusions, and demons.

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

Dougie Poole releases new EP and plays Baby's All Right 10/10

I can only imagine that old-school country vibes are a difficult sell in New York, but Dougie Poole, the self-proclaimed "Most Generally Well-Adjusted Country Singer/Songwriter" delivers just that, and in a way that may even be compelling for listeners with more Northern musical leanings. Olneyville System Special EP, his latest release, has one foot in traditional country, but there's something about the instrumentation that feels very modern, and certainly self-aware. This, coupled with Poole's smooth baritone voice makes the EP mandatory listening for even the most discerning anti-country New Yorker. Check out "Olneyville System Special" streaming below and catch Poole at Baby's All Right 10/10 with Still Corners and Foxes in Fiction. -Olivia Sisinni

Ziemba founds label, release "LALA" single, tours Europe

We were among the first blogs to draw attention towards NYC's Ziemba bravely decadent atmospheres and simple but stylish visuals. We are glad to report that the young lady has been keeping at it: Concept EP 'LALA' (produced by Jeremiah Meece, streaming below) is the first official release on Ardis Multiverse, the artist's new multisensory imprint, and reflects a musical departure for Ziemba, compared to recent LP Hope is Never. In a setting that's as dark, but more consistently electronic, Ziemba tells the story of "a succubus [...] who lives in a cave and sequesters herself to protect the world from her capacity for destruction." Ziemba also announced a fall European tour. Recommended for those who miss Nico. - photo by Ben Grad.

Vivienne Eastwood announces new EP, plays Night of Joy on 10.06

Modifying the brand name of an iconic British fashion designer largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream, Vivienne Eastwood is luckily more focused on sound than looks. This week they released brand new material from a new upcoming EP with single “Messy,” which explores slow-motion ambient landscapes that ebb and flow without any percussive beats. With densely layered fuzzed-out guitars leading the way, Loveless-era My Bloody Valentine and much of Slowdive’s catalog immediately come to mind. Like many of the tunes by those classic gazey bands, the track reveals more nuance with repeated listens. There is a driving bass line embedded within, along with silvery jingling around the sonic edges. Vocals come in backward masking waves, swirling up in the mix as if taking in a huge breath of air. The combined effect is both enchanting and mesmerizing. The band will host a release party on Thursday October 6 at Night Of Joy in Brooklyn where they will be DJing from 10pm on and play the EP in its entirety. - Dave Cromwell
