Kellen of Troy is very alive on indie rock debut "Posthumous Release"

Formerly a fiddle player for The Apache Relay, Kellen Wenrich has struck out on his own as Kellen of Troy. His debut full-length Posthumous Release offers self-reflective lyricism through a fusion of indie pop, rock, and folk that draws strongly from the melodic influences of The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and occasionally '50s rock & roll, situating Wenrich nicely beside contemporaries Lord Huron and Kurt Vile. Check out the album below and be sure to look out for the next time Kellen of Troy is in town! - Chris Thiessen

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!

The Arcadian Wild bid you "Look Around" on new EP

For those who like the bluegrassy side of indie folk (think The Punch Brothers or maybe Sufjan at his most stripped down), you should already be familiar with Nashville's The Arcadian Wild. If you're not, today they have released their newest 2-song EP, Look Around. The organically beautiful tracks "The Poet" and "Millstatt" are the first looks at the trio with new member, violinist Machaela Nesler. Their fine-tuned folk arrangements, poetic lyricism, and heartwarming harmonies make The Arcadian Wild a standout outfit in Music City. Check out Look Around below! - Chris Thiessen

Patzy debuts with dreamy single "Pat's Chord Pool"

If you haven't heard of Patzy yet, well, that's because there's not a whole lot to say yet. Their About page consists of "Patzy are some friends who play music in Nashville, TN. But hey, they share a name with the guy that bangs coconuts together in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. So that's pretty neat. On a more important note, Patzy has debuted their first single, "Pat's Chord Pool," a dreamy piece of psych pop drenched in reverb and orchestral tendencies. Check out the single below and be sure to look out for their Opus Uno coming out this Spring. - Chris Thiessen
