Bodega is on the cover of the 54th issue of The Deli NYC!

If there's a turn of phrase we kind of detest here at The Deli is "taking the scene by storm." It's one of those generic prefab sentences that ring insincere. But then again, sometimes, some bands do that - kind of rare, but it happens, right? And sometimes, on a hot day like today, being lazy is kind of inevitable. So... yes! Brooklyn's Bodega are taking the NYC scene by storm with their blend of post-punk and pop and their super-fun live shows. That, and their somewhat familiar name, are the main reasons why they are on the cover of the new, spring 2018 issue of The Deli! 

The issue, our 54th NYC one, is now up online and you can read it here.

It's an issue linked to the biggest event for musicians we've ever organized, which will host a Stompbox Exhibit, a Synth Expo and a Vintage Guitar Exchange in a Bushwick art gallery called Absurd Conclave - hope to see you there!

From the digital submissions: the triumphant pop-punk of Chousand

“I'm so dumb / I don't think before I speak,” proclaim the opening lines of “Cool Me,” the first track off the self-titled debut LP by Stamford, Connecticut’s Chousand. The rest of the 10 track debut follows the same route of self-deprecation so blunt that it inexplicably makes you smile, in true pop punk fashion. From the aggressively careless “Subaru” to the anxiety-ridden “I’m All Gums,” this album is a triumph — a tongue-in-cheek salute to shouting with a beer in your hand and a smile on your face. They will be playing their album release show at The Shamrock in Waterbury, CT on June 16th at 7 pm. Until then, stream all of Chousand below. - Lilly Milman

Connecticut's Kerri Powers releases earnest debut 'Starseeds' & embarks on tour

Connecticut-based americana singer-songwriter Kerri Powers has seen it all, and she intends to tell you about it on her debut album Starseeds. Her experience is obvious from her simple, yet earnest way of storytelling; her confident, yet not overzealous vocals; her subtle, yet astute reworking of age-old tales like that of Lady Godiva. Take lead single “Mine the River” (streaming below), where she is able to blend the seemingly overused combination of bluesy guitars, a soulful voice, and Americana storytelling to create something original. She is currently touring and will be playing her next show on May 18 at Washington DC’s The Hamilton. But fear not, she’ll be back in Connecticut in June to play a show at Bridge Street on June 24. - Lilly Milman
