Gam debuts butter-smooth record "Moments and Spirals"

Boston’s Gam is a silky smooth group with a short and sweet EP we recommend highly. Moments and Spirals opens up with “Every Second Levitates,” a funky track that unravels elegantly: the guitars range from crisp-clean to wah-tinged and swirl around warm vocals, and snappy beats. “Wait a Little” leans on its slow rhythm and oozes jazziness steady while “Sunkissed Lovers” has a serene ambiance and an R&B groove perfect for a sweet wind-down. The band is just taking flight, but already its path looks promising, and its musical colors splendid. Stream “Every Second Levitates” below to join the journey. - Rene Cobar

A Deli Premiere: "Midnight Escapade" by Jake Sherman

Boston’s Jake Sherman turns a mundane evening into a fireworks-filled carnival in the music video for his latest single “Midnight Escapade.” Even if only possibly in his mind, the elation of a late-night cuddle call brews throughout to the sound of his creamy R&B music. From hot harmonies to laid-back rhythms, the song is a romantic throwback to the heyday of America’s R&B vocal groups, and just in time for Valentine’s Day. Jake is in the middle of an East Coast tour titled after the track and will be performing for the first time in many of the cities listed here. Jake is revving up the feels in this latest music video, and we are thrilled to premiere it here for you below. Happy Valentine’s Day, New England! - Rene Cobar, photo by Luc Kordas

   

Melissa Mills spills raw emotion in new single "Lose My Cool"

Melissa Mills has a new single out, and it is classic Melissa Mills. “Lose My Cool” has an emotional edge to it that is hard to ignore: Melissa’s passionate vocals grip you from the start, and combined with a luscious blend of synths swells and smooth-cool rhythms drag you to the places of her mind where healing is taking place. Fury and acceptance exist in the track, and both are acknowledged with honesty and raw emotion—Melissa’s specialty. Stream this new track from the Boston-based artist below. - Rene Cobar
