The Deli Presents Roses at Bootleg HiFi

In the simplest terms, Roses can be described as eighties-leaning nostalgics with a penchant for dramatic flourishes that bristle with a somber tone. Their latest EP, Dreamlover, is filled with lush soundscapes reminiscent of The Wake, tempered synth-leaning ballads with textured keyboards that ache as much as they delight. For the entirety of this month, The Deli LA will be presenting their month-long residency every Sunday night. It kicks off this Sunday, November 9th, in which they'll be joined by Dunes, Michael Vidal, and a DJ set with Bethany Consentino of Best Coast. Stream the upbeat, gleaming pop jam "It's Over", and head to the Bootleg this Sunday night for a fun-packed night.

Stream: Busy Living, "Let You Down"

We've all been there. No two people love each other equally, which is the theme trio Busy Living explore on their latest track "Let You Down". "I don’t want to let you down/ but it’s gonna happen", goes Mike Moonves's sprightly chorus as a smattering of propulsive synths wash over the track's anthemic pull. Produced by Spoon's Jim Eno, "Let You Down" is a slight departure from their more streamlined guitar pop. It's a joyful moment marked with some sadness, and they bring a potent reason to celebrate the beauty of oneself when the love we invest on so fully may go unrequited.

Stream: Snoh, "Bad Things" featuring Common

After listening to Snoh Aalegra's sultry voice, I took away a version of the song that changed how I heard it. ”I’m in a nightmare having a dream…I find good things in bad versions of me.” Collecting all the images of self-doubt I have of myself, her latest track "Bad Things" put them away in the back of my mind while making me realize that the bad things I find within myself just make up who I am. Of course, the way Aalegra chooses to portray her imagery of it is noticeably more spellbinding and more pleasurable on the ears. Alas, Producer Rich ‘No I.D.’ Daily laid out the tracks to this single, mixing R&B and soul with hip hop to create a blended rendition of what sounds like the daughter of Alicia Keys and Kat Dahlia. Aalegra is due to be signed with Sony later next year, and with that in her future, there really is no stopping this bombshell. - Kayla Hay

Green Gerry Play the Bootleg on 10.29

Athens, Georgia native, LA-based Green Gerry first began as the bedroom project of Gerry Green. Gerry oversaw the entire project by himself until he assembled a group after the release of his second album, King Baby. His translucent lo-fi has since captured the attention of major indie label Mom + Pop, who approached Gerry to re-record one of the tracks off that album under their offshoot singles label Mermaid Ave. Since then, Gerry has recorded a second single, "Mumbo Jumbo", a slack psychedelic track that displays Gerry's pop sensibilities whilst honing in some slightly warped guitar work. 

You can catch Green Gerry at the Bootleg tomorrow, October 29th as part of the monthly Blind Date new music series.

Video: Magic Bronson, "Fences"

Michael Nicastro and Matthew Lieberman, the genre ambiguous duo known as Magic Bronson, are releasing their first full length album, Wildlife, on November 4th. The album, a follow up to their May 2013 EP, Nor'easter, is filled with the band's fresh mix of hip hop and indie rock. "Fences", the lead single off Wildlife, is a heartfelt homage to family. The corresponding video is comprised of sunny shots of their LA lives and vintage family moments. With lines like, "So take a look around you, these people founded you", "Fences" is not only an intimate portrayal of Nicastro and Lieberman's lives, but also an invitation to re-examine our own. - Jennifer Mergott
