New(YC) Releases: Homeboy Sandman, Emefe, Mutual Benefit, Olga Bell and Frankie Cosmos

Here's our usual, "blurbless" appointment with tracks recently released by NYC based artists that are either "not so emerging" (but also not so famous!) or have already been covered a lot in the past in ths very blog, enjoy!

Read our past coverage about these artists here: Homeboy Sandman (pictured), Mutual Benefit, Olga Bell, EMEFE


Health&Beauty have released the first single from their forthcoming LP, No Scare. The single is called "Wartime" and the LP is due out on Aug. 4th via Wichita.


Buzz Alert! Margaret Glaspy tours with Lucius + releases LP at Baby's All Right on 06.16

In 'Somebody to Anybody,' singer/songwriter Margaret Glaspy resolves to live outside others' expectations ('I don't want to be somebody to anybody, no...'), and sounds about as confident in this statement as anything she's released to date. The song is an appropriate introduction to the Brooklyn-by-California artist. At once hard-edged and intimate, jarring and softly sweet, the girl-next-door and a growling tempest, it's a losing task to try and tie Glaspy's pristine talent to any predictable expectation. Faster and sunnier single "Emotion and Math" (streaming) is another example of Margaret's ambivalence, right from its title.

Considering that she's moved in short order from participation in fiddling competitions in California, to playing crunchy folk jams in Boston, to the New York-based set you'll soon hear from her debut full-length 'Emotions and Math,' (ATO Records), it's immediately apparent this is an artist that doesn't settle - neither geographically nor artistically. Margaret Glaspy will be touring as Lucius' opening act this summer, but you can catch the artist when she plays at Baby's All Right on Sat, June 18th, and get the new record when it's released from ATO Records (also home to King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard!!!) on June 17th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

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


Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Opening for Heron Oblivion at Boot & Saddle May 27

The soothing, entrapping vocals of former Philly native Meg Baird linger, pulling you through the beautiful haze of San Francisco psych-folk outfit Heron Oblivion. The surrounding instrumentation gently stirs as the vocals waft. Then, the shapes begin to shift, and the heaviness emerges as the musical demons are let out of their confines, unleashing the fury. Tonight, Boot & Saddle hosts a sold-out show, which also features the deep entrenching psych-rock explorations of Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band. Forsyth and company bob and weave through a labyrinth of long-distance riffs and grooves, sending you into a vortex that you’ll happily survey. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8:30pm, $12 (Sold Out), 21+ - Michael Colavita

Dream-pop trio Pale Dīan celebrates release of 'Narrow Birth' at Swan Dive on 06.03

Austin-based dream-pop trio Pale Dian, set to release their debut album Narrow Birth on June 3rd via Manifesto Records, offers whirling melodies and glowing textures reminiscent of unforgettable dream-pop acts such as Cocteau Twins and Lush, although they often enjoy adding a peculiar touch of dissonance to their tunes. Earlier this year, the trio released “In A Day” (streaming below), the first single off their upcoming album, characterized by a uber-celestial melody and big choruses featuring wall of guitars borrowed from shoegazer. Their latest single “Pas De Deux” (also streaming) strips down their sound leaving behind the fuzz of their previous single, and creating an equally mesmerizing atmosphere that allows lead singer Ruth Ellen Smith’s echoey vocals to exert their haunting magnetism. After playing a record release show for Narrow Birth at Swan Dive on June 3rd, the band will be on tour through the end of July with Ringo Deathstar and Stargazer Lillies on select dates. - John Honan
