Abi Reimold Opening for Ava Luna at Space 1026 Sept. 25

Raw, visceral, dreamy, anything she wants to sound like. Abi Reimold brings a sound and fury that cradles - sometimes like a loving mother, and other times like a bed of razor blades. But it is always hauntingly beautiful. And she’ll be bringing that sound and fury to Space 1026 when she opens for avant-pop Brooklynites Ava Luna. They'll also be joined by Philly psych-popsters Laser Background. Come out for a rare performance at the Chinatown art space! Space 1026, 1026 Arch St., $10, All Ages (Photo by Skyler Burkhart) - Keith Kelley

   

Dougie Poole releases new EP and plays Baby's All Right 10/10

I can only imagine that old-school country vibes are a difficult sell in New York, but Dougie Poole, the self-proclaimed "Most Generally Well-Adjusted Country Singer/Songwriter" delivers just that, and in a way that may even be compelling for listeners with more Northern musical leanings. Olneyville System Special EP, his latest release, has one foot in traditional country, but there's something about the instrumentation that feels very modern, and certainly self-aware. This, coupled with Poole's smooth baritone voice makes the EP mandatory listening for even the most discerning anti-country New Yorker. Check out "Olneyville System Special" streaming below and catch Poole at Baby's All Right 10/10 with Still Corners and Foxes in Fiction. -Olivia Sisinni

Available on cassette and lathe-cut vinyl via UK label Liquid Library, the songs emerge from in between the cracks with their intimately hushed/secretive vocal tones.
