Ruby Throated are at their best on inspired new single, "My Worst"

Ruby Throated spin around with regretful acknowledgment on "My Worst." The positively brainy new single by the progressive pop four-piece sounds as flummoxed as the song's conflicted subject, where their fractured time signatures give an air of distress to someone whose hopeless endeavor to make things better makes them fall deeper and deeper. Led by Jocelyn Raulston's playful vocals, the band introduce oft-kilter meters over eclectic jazz elements - it serves to mention that all band members come from academic musical backgrounds - with an otherwise agile simplicity. But nothing about "My Worst" sounds too studious or elaborate, as they let their free-spirited groove guide them with a joyful release. 

"My Worst" is the first single off of Ruby Throated's forthcoming EP, Breakfast Table Omen, which will be self-released on January 4. Juan Rodríguez

Buzz Alert: L'Freaq unveils video for "Moonlight" from "Weird Awakenings" EP

We've been saying for years that female indie musicians have, on average, been producing a lot more interesting material than their dude counterparts, and L'Freaq, the project of bi-coastal electronic singer songwriter Lea Cappelli, is another piece in the truly beautiful puzzle representing NYC women's musical output in the new millennium. After releasing the delicate yet edgy electro-soul ballad "Weird Awakenings," the artists has recently unveiled a darker (and even edgier) single/video combo with  "Moonlight" - streaming below. Channeling the experimental, noir ballads of Portishead, the track features a deceivingly sparse arrangement, blending a killer plodding and syncopated rhythm section with ever-evolving, ambient electronic soundscape. Lea's vocals not only confirm her noteworthy pipes and silky tone, but also reveal her ability to convey character to a performance and "play" the song's part, a trait only few musical performer possess. Don't miss her next live performance at Rockwood on February 2nd.





Fawns of Love release kaleidoscopic video for new single "Mournful Eyes"

Fawns of Love celebrate the beautiful ties that keep us connected on "Mournful Eyes." The married duo of Jenny and Joseph Andreotti's latest single expresses an almost subconscious antipathy in our lack of human connection, and how the possibility to change that mindset is always within our grasp. The darkly poppy track sounds like a long lost coldwave hit, where Jenny's beatific vocals echo over a soft blanket of transfixing synth lines. On the accompanying video, a series of visually inventive animated images create a dark lit mood fit for a dance floor projection. 

"Mournful Eyes" is the second single off of Fawns of Love's forthcoming sophomore release, Permanent, which comes out on January 18 via Test Pattern Records. Juan Rodríguez

Maiah Manser releases new single "Yards," performs at the Hi Hat tonight

Maiah Manser began her musical journey in Seattle, Washington, but fortunately for us at The Deli, and you, the people, she has settled here in Los Angeles. “Yards” is Manser’s newest single, and boy does she have a lot to say. A final triumphant ‘f-you’ to the ex, “I don’t need you to survive” and “sorry that I’m not sorry” is just a taste of bittersweet goodbyes to the one who clearly didn’t deserve her. I want “Yards” played during my next breakup if I ever drastically and dramatically quit my job during a car chase while I am cooking breakfast, and definitely during a slow-motion shot of me flipping my hair to a random stranger (thank you, next). Funny how certain songs can make you feel uplifted and powerful with just one listen, and that is exactly what Maiah Manser did with this single. This pop-tastic jam will leave you hitting repeat until your next relationship. 

Feel free to hover over that replay button until 8 pm tonight because Manser will be playing at The Hi Hat with Lily Waters and Precious Kid, so don’t miss out on this bombshell of a performance. Kayla Hay
