Welcome to the melodic, super pretty dream pop of Night Fruit. They’re releasing their debut single “Dark Horse” with a party at Great Scott (the Pill) Friday night, December 9. From the chiming guitars to Amanda Dellevigne’s harmonizing vocals and gently driving rhythm, these guys have a lovely sound.

The band began this year with their “Triangles” 4-track demo on bandcamp. The Boston Phoenix voted them as one of 11 bands to ‘look out for’ in 2011. Dellevigne toured with Vanity Theft for the first half of the year; Night Fruit regrouped in June to begin working on the new release, which was mixed and mastered by drummer Luke Sullivan. They’ve toured with Marnie Stern (Kill Rock Stars), No Joy (Mexican Summer), Joan of Arc (Polyvinyl Records), Farewell Continental, Film School, The Depreciation Guild, and Asteroid 4.

An Introduction to Walt Whitney

New Jersey-based Walt Whitney has been performing his down-home blues, R&B and funky ‘old school’ rock ‘n’ roll for some years now. His influences range from Louis Armstrong to Hank Williams and Elvis Presley, and he’s supported such notable musicians as Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna), David Johansen (New York Dolls, Buster Poindexter), and Southside Johnny (& the Asbury Jukes). Performing solo acoustic or with a full band, his music can be slow and soulful, or juke-joint rockin’. Here’s a few samplings of the different sounds of Walt Whitney.

Oh Land with Savoir Adore at Brighton Music Hall
Wednesday, December 7, 2011
Doors at 8 PM; Show at 9 PM; 18+ show
Advance Tickets $15

If you’re in the mood for some atmospheric synth pop on Wednesday evening, head over to Brighton Music Hall for Oh Land and Savoir Adore. Oh Land, fronted by Scandinavian fairy tale princess Nanna ├śland Fabricius, is a pleasantly fluffy concoction infused with the sensibilities of a formally trained ballet dancer raised by an opera-singing mother and church organist father. Dance beats and whimsy propel things along. Supporting Oh Land is the lush and dreamy Savoir Adore, from Brooklyn, New York. They’ll be releasing their second album next year, but in the meantime, their latest single is “Dreamers,” available from Neon Gold Records.
