Weekend Warrior, June 8 - 10

Sweaty, heart-pounding primal rhythms, compounded by raunchy riffs and roaring, raspy vocals, Ecstatic Vision taps into grimy grooves, and explores the smoky haze, creating a mystical setting. Tonight, Kung Fu Necktie will host a celebration of the band’s latest release Under the Influence, a collection of covers paying homage to their musical predecessors.  Released via Heavy Psych Sounds, a hot-on-your-heels heaviness develops a gut-checking sense of suspense, adhering as one races through the sticky, sonic forest. Reinforcing the rowdy, in-your-face, hard-rockin’ aesthetic, Narcos Family Band saturates in a unbridled stampede, welcoming all challengers. And Heavy Psych Sounds labelmates and fellow locals High Reeper will be kicking off the festivities. – Michael Colavita

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!

The Folks at The Deli NYC

New Track: "Around You" - Free Cake For Every Creature

Katie Bennett, a.k.a. Free Cake For Every Creature, just shared “Around You,” the first single off her forthcoming LP The Bluest Star, due out August 3 via Double Double Whammy. The song opens at a jogging pace, showcasing exertion but with a relaxed backdrop. That heartwarming earnestness reflects on the joyous, fluttery feelings of an unforgettable crush/love. You can share in the feels with Bennett & friends at Everybody Hits on Friday, August 3, where they'll be supported by Told Slant and Slow Ref.

New Track: "SR 2K18 sorry" - Brown Rainbow

Brown Rainbow's new single, “SR 2K18 sorry,” is an unexpected, pleasant surprise. The song self-disparages as a low-key melody finds its place. Coming to grips/recognizing one's shortcomings, the recording kinda bums you out but in a familiar, self-loathing way. Slow-burning honesty hits overdrive as a fiery guitar jam arises, before returning to its mellow beginnings. Welcome the hypnotic haze as it washes over you.

New Music Video: "Nothing" - Fleabite

NVM, the new EP from the quartet of Fleabite, is slated for release on June 29 via Salinas Records. The band finds Ali Donohue (Swanning, Waxahatchee) and Chelsea Dirck (Missing EarthYowler) joining forces with Aye Nako’s Joe McCann and Jade Payne. In their new video for the single “Nothing,” clay stop-motion is utilized, exhibiting a playful side as the song acknowledges regret in hindsight. It's a raw-around-the-edges quick-hitter. The group is set to head out on tour in July, and they'll be kicking things off in Philly on Tuesday, July 10 at a yet-to-be-announced location.
