Among the many jaw-dropping moments from Ritual Talk‘s performance at Pianos a few weeks back, one that noticeably caught the eyes of the crowd was their artful 5-person vocal harmonization.

There is a vintage sound that comes across in LA indie quintet Inner Wave’s latest single “Eclipse” (streaming below).

Psych-Rock band Ritual Talk released an extremely intriguing debut single (with video, streaming below) entitled, “Help, I’ve Been Dreaming”, and is scheduled to perform at Pianos on August 4th. The track is an art-rock song that flows through so many sounds, it becomes difficult to even categorize, yet manage to stay within tasteful boundaries, never sacrificing musical coherence for the sake of experimentation. A rather complex ¾ beat starts the song off, traveling into more psych-rock, wavier sounds from both the guitar and harmonizing female and male vocals. The lyrics are serene, succint but poetic. Then, a more indie rock sound evolves through intricate guitar pattering, slowly evolving as background organs enter the soundscape. If you dig this single, keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming album and don’t miss them live!– Pearse Devlin

If we’re going to be honest about it, 2017 has yet to produce a real summer banger. Sure, you can make arguments for a few radio hits, but you’d really have to argue that one of them fits that magical "song of the summer" moniker. However, NYC-based MICKY (aka Michael Persall), might have just delivered the ultimate track to save you from those summer blues. "He Won’t," the Motown-pop influenced singer’s newest song premiering exclusively with the Deli, is another perfect example of MICKY’s penchant for making vintage sounds feel fresh and modern. With smooth horns, soulful falsetto vocals and funky synths, "He Won’t" is easily your perfect top-down driving tune. Stream it below, and we dare you to not fall head over heels in love. – Olivia Sisinni

Q&A with indie-folk songwriter Belle-Skinner

A truly talented songwriter based in Brooklyn, Belle-Skinner is a self-described mix of "mid-century pop and fingerstyle contemporary folk." Her songs contain a multitude of influences while maintaining a style that’s all her own. On 2016 album, We Shut Our Eyes, her fluid falsetto is reminiscent of Joni Mitchell and Joanna Newsom, while the songs’ structural deftness hearkens to the creep-and-crawl of Elliott Smith and the understated drama of Sufjan Stevens and Jeff Buckley. Belle Skinner landed this interview through the Music Building‘s "Expose Yourself" campaign. Check out the Q&A below!
