BBQ Pope - New Single, Hittin' The Rec Room 03.30

Toronto garage/pysch band BBQ Pope have released a new two song…thing. It’s the “Winters of my Youth” single. This tune is very catchy and still rambunctious as you would expect from BBQ Pope. This 5 minute rocker has many layers that’ll keep you interested the whole time. The accompanying track “Before and After” kind of begins like “I Got You” by Split Enz. This tune has a more relaxed attitude. It’s the kind of tune that makes you feel sad but happy at the same time. Know what I mean? See BBQ Pope at the Rec Room on March 30th with Nobunny and Vypers. – Kris Gies

Jimbo - Psych Stoner Rock from Kingston

Jimbo is a solid band name and I was excited to have a listen to this psych-rock band from Kingston. “Thunderbird” opens their debut EP with a thumping pace before the guitars kick in with a classic blues driven lick. It’s a nice mix of 70’s hard rock and 90’s stoner tunes. There’s also a real face melter of a solo in this track as well. Grab this EP when ya got 15 minutes available to rock out. – Kris Gies

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!
