A Deli Premiere: Red Steppes’ “Madera” & June 7th Show

Noise Pop nailed another solid show next month at Cafe du Nord. A power trio of a line up: Red Steppes, Sis, and Range of Light Wilderness. Red Steppes presents a surreal folk with vocal stylings like a less high-pitched Joni Mitchell infused with just the right touch of gentle keys and synths (god bless you, Native Cat, another gem). To be quite frank, it’s beautiful. We’re proud to premier the video for “Madera” here. Stay tuned for much more on Sis and Range of Light Wilderness. - Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

   

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

Molly Parden performs at The Basement 05.20

Molly Parden shows up at the top of The Deli's Nashville charts quite a bit, so we thought we should share that she'll play at The Basement on May 20th. Parden has bounced around the Northeast and Midwest over the past month; her Spring tour around the States will take her to the Northwest and Southeast before she returns home to Nashville. At her Basement show, fellow artists and friends Madi Diaz and Zoe Sky Jordan will join Parden on the bill. Catch this show and you may also hear some new tracks. Take a listen to Parden's latest release, 2018's "Bolting Volts", below. - Will Sisskind

   

The Child of Eve

The Child of Eve is the earnest folk music of Benjamin Groth. He released his debut EP, “Bramble”, earlier this year, and it is beautiful, thoughtful independent music.

You can catch The Child of Eve at Bitter Jester Festival in Highland Park on June 14th.
