A Deli Premiere: Milan to Minsk drop new video "Welcome to Hitler"

Brooklyn-based art pop quartet, Milan to Minsk, is gearing up to release their latest EP, Welcome to Hitler (out 12/1, EP release on 12.06 at Trans-Pecos), but for fans interested in getting a glimpse of what's to come, the Deli is excited to premiere the band's new video for the album's title track. As the title may have you guess, the album offers a timely observation on what forces elevate people in different positions of power, however the new video is unexpectedly entertaining in a fun way, and its bright colors and whimsical feel reads like a trippy Wes Anderson flick. With smooth lounge-style vocals, whirling instrumentals and a mind-melding saxophone solo, "Welcome to Hitler," is a strange and shimmering track, and easily our latest earworm. Stream the video below. - Olivia Sisinni 

New Track: "Stop the Sunrise" - Remote Places

Released via Box Theory Records, "Stop the Sunrise" is the new single from the Justin Geller-led electro-rock project Remote Places. Co-produced with Jeff Zeigler, the song wax and wanes from mysterious wafts of keys to palpitating kick-drum action, courtesy of Pissed Jeans' Sean McGuinness. Guitar flourishes are also provided by former Pink Skull partner-in-crime Julian Grefe, with Mikele Edwards (Myrrias) on piano and vocal harmony, contributing to the track's danceable AM haze.

Milk Was A Bad Choice Benefit Showcase (11.01)

In the wake of the recent fires in Napa and Sonoma, the monthly Milk Was A Bad Choice showcase is donating the proceeds from the next show to relief for those communities. The stacked lineup includes a funky mix of the Bay Area’s best indie pop bands—all of which have been previously featured on The Deli. It’s hard to resist dancing to the upbeat, semi-electro melodic pop of Panic is Perfect, a five-piece with afro-pop influences. The jazzy six-piece LOCO TRANQUILO is sure to make you move, as well, with their unique blend genre-defying funk music. Finally, the slow-brewing soul-influenced alt rock of MOSAICS tops off the lineup. - Lilly Milman

Be sure to drop by the Milk Bar, catch this stacked line up, and donate to a worthy cause on November 1st at 8 pm. Until then, listen to our playlist of the performers below. 

RoniCea - Debut Single "Bassline"

RoniCea is a Toronto based soul singer who just released her first single “Bassline (ft. YoDaddyDoe)”. This track has major throwback vibes. The spacious beat with the synth/keys over the top hit that 90’s RnB spot so well. You don’t hear many new tunes like this nowadays. This will be cranked with the windows down all over Toronto very soon. This has the vibes of the peak era of RnB. I think they should have extended the outro for longer and really let that beat flow. Still a good tune no doubt. – Kris Gies


From the digital submissions: Bay Area producer Alec Lee releases 'Life in Pastel' EP

With electronic music becoming more popular than ever, it’s not surprising that bedroom artists are popping up all over the country. What is notable, though, is the producer that actually gets out of the bedroom and plays a live show. California native Alec Lee is of this rare breed, performing his soulful, Chet Faker-inspired electro-pop across the Bay Area, opening up for acts like Smash Mouth and Tender. His newest EP Life in Pastel is a cross-section of all his best qualities as a creator. His singer-songwriter side comes out in “I’ll Be Ready,” a stripped-down track that straddles the line between soul and pop, while “Found You” (streaming below) is a full-out explosion of upbeat electronica. - Lilly Milman
