Toronto's FRIGS on the cover of Austin 2018 issue of The Deli

Deliriously rocking beings,

Once a year, The Deli publishes an issue of The Deli that is NOT exclusively focused on NYC acts, but on artists based in all the 11 scenes we cover. That time of the year is now, an that issue is the 8th Austin issue of The Deli, which you can now read online here. The print version of it, in its glorious 7 inch format, will be available in print next week in Austin and in NYC shortly thereafter.

On the mag's cover you'll find Toronto's noise rockers FRIGS, whose debut album Basic Behaviour has been rocking our world in the last few weeks.

The issue features other incredible emerging artists, including hip hop genius Nnamdi Ogbonnya, talented goofball popper Caroline Rose, and Los Angeles' alt-rockers The Beaches among others - you can listen to all of them in the YouTube playlist below.

Also in the issue, an article entitled "Will Rock Explode Again?" which poses pognant questions about the future of rock'n'roll.

As usual, in the final pages you'll find a section focused on the guitar pedals and synths involved in our Austin Stompbox and Synth Expo, scheduled for March 16/17 at the Chuggin' Monkey in Downtown Austin!

Media Jeweler tailor fractured post-punk on "Splayed Wayside"

Media Jeweler weave an intricate thread on "Splayed Wayside." On the three years since their debut release, $99 R/T Hawaii, the post-punk four-piece further darken their lively, math rock arrangements with a pointedly Dadaist expression which gives the song a brooding, sinister edge. Made up of throbbing bass lines and a gyrating guitar tone that sounds as if it's knotted like barbed wire fence, they rebel on some form of societal malaise with a statement that is both impenetrable and alluring. 

"Splayed Wayside" is the the second single off of their forthcoming full-length, 1-800-SUCCEED. It comes out on March 30 via Fire Talk. Make sure to catch their record release party at Scoops on April 7.
