Daphne Lee Martin gave listeners a 10-track live preview of her new release at The Outer Space Thursday night.

Martin performed with a 4 piece band, and though it was their first time playing out together the group conducted themselves with a fine-tuned swagger.

Their new album, titled “Moxie,” isn’t slated for released on Telegraph Co. Records for another couple weeks, which was all the more reason to play its entirety for the intimate audience in Hamden.

It’s a vaudeville trip hop jaunt through dimly lit lounges and watering holes. Calling the sound alcohol-drenched would seem a little over done these days, though cocktails would be your ear’s beverage of choice. The Outer Space’s exquisite craft brews was a decent substitution.

They were joined by Sam Perduta (of Elison Jackson) for guest vocals on the saucy ‘Faithless Beauty,’ and an eerie calm fell over the bar for Bill Readey’s haunting piano on ‘Cheers, Darlin.’

Acoustic folk country acts Suzie Brown and Jenee Halstead also performed.
