Blues rock quartet Quarters of Change set to play Knitting Factory on 05.24

Cha-ching! NYC’s Quarters of Change continues to score with some wickedly addictive songs. Since the release of their 2018 eponymous EP, the group has been keeping their work rate in high gear with a trio of singles. Each tune is more refined than the next and displays the band’s vibrant blues-rock style—bass lines slip and slide, guitar melodies cavort, snares crack, and crooning voices harmonize. The smooth players will be further affirming their entry into the NYC music scene by playing Knitting Factory in Brooklyn on May 24th. Check out the sleekness of “Feathers” below. - Rene Cobar

Abe Hollow’s “Golden Calf”

Abe Hollow just released his first single, “Golden Calf” off the forthcoming A Palace in Time and it’s a calm and lovely surrealist folk song reminiscent of Bon Iver’s compositions and Elliot Smith’s breathy sad vocals but with slightly trippier touches. A Palace in Time, recorded at Tiny Telephone and mastered by Jacob Winik, is a collection of collaborations with musicians from all over the Bay Area, including AH, Andrew Maguire, Doug Stuart, John Vanderslice, and many others. Check out this sweet taste and stayed tuned for his full release this July. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





Verdigirls play Trans-Pecos 05.18 to mark new EP release

Sisters Catherine and Anna Wolk have played music together as Verdigrls for years now, and The Deli once again takes great pride in covering another new release from one of New York's rising indie pop acts. Verdigrls' new EP Small Moves comes out on May 17th; the title track, which we've featured below, has the Wolks' voices echoing over a repeating synth, the squeaking of a cello, and a minimal drum track. The track's detached feeling matches the subject matter of the lyrics, which go into the ennui of being at a party where everyone else is having fun but you. Verdigrls will mark the release of Small Moves at Trans-Pecos on May 18th; Anna Altman and Den-Mate will perform on the bill as well. - Will Sisskind

Erin Rae releases "Bad Mind" music video; plays Musicians Corner 05.25

For the pleasant coming warmth of spring comes a song born from pain: Erin Rae's "Bad Mind" came out last year on her album Putting On Airs, but it gets new life as the music video for the track has just dropped. It shows Rae singing in a field of blossoming branches and flowers, showing growth even as Rae stands in wistful poses and walks with her eyes downcast. The song itself concerns Rae's relationship fears and her coming to terms with what caused them, including memories of an Alabama court ruling her aunt to be an "unfit mother" because she was gay. The video's mixture of pensiveness -- Erin -- and perseverance -- how the flowers bloom every year -- show that through grief, there can be growth. Rae will take her songs on the road this spring and summer; she'll make a hometown stop in Nashville at Musicians Corner on May 25th. Catch her then; for now, watch the video for "Bad Mind" below. - Will Sisskind





Bill Waters celebrates EP release at Trans-Pecos on 04.30

Bill Waters may not spend much time on social media promoting his music, but that may be because his songs speak for themselves. Waters' 2017 dreamy retro-pop EP Humid is laced with a heavy dose of laid-back guitar tunes, splendid drum fills, and mellow verses that seamlessly transition into reverb-drenched choruses. His second entry, Honey Hi appears to follow the same formula, and yet expands the palette of baroque pop that characterized the early Last Shadow Puppets super-group, adding a touch of the chillwave of bands like Washed Out. While you won’t find much info on the new album, Bill Waters does have an album release show at Trans-Pecos in Brooklyn on April 30th. Check out his song “It's True” from Honey Hi below. - Rene Cobar
