A Place to Bury Strangers on the cover of The Deli's NYC / NAMM Issue 2018!

Hello good music diggers!

The Winter 2018 issue of The Deli NYC (our 53rd!) is now available for you to read online, here!

This is also the first NAMM issue of The Deli, since a week from today we'll be at the Californian musical instrument convention with a huge booth full of guitar pedals!

That's why we took the opportunity to put on the cover of our magazine the legendary Brooklyn noise rockers A Place To Bury Strangers - a band that makes their own stompboxes, called Death By Audio.

The issue features a lot of other local artists (and their pedals) and also an article about the best records of 2017 by emerging NYC Artists - check it out!

Here's a playlist of the artists featured in the issue.

 




Russian Bath’s “Slenderman” contrasts airy vocals with noisy shoegaze

Beginning with pummeling tom drums, Russian Baths' first single from the upcoming “Penance” EP could easily be a soundtrack to fleeing the titular Slenderman character. While the airy vocals emote almost plainly, the instrumentals jostle with each other to occasionally cacophonous peaks. At its calmest, “Slenderman” is a foreboding, gothic track but the noisy, feedback-laden guitars topple over in threatening outbursts that do justice to the fictional character’s horror legacy. Most startling about “Slenderman” is the calm portrayed in the vocals throughout it all. In another context the voice might be a soothing reassurance, but here it only adds to the tension. "Penance" is out February 23rd via Good Eye Records. – Cameron Carr





“Foreclosure” is the haunting debut album of Michi Tassey side project Nature Shots

The debut release from singer/songwriter Michi Tassey of Nature Shots is as haunting and spacious as its title suggests. Foreclosure is an exercise in both patience and resilience within its cavernous landscape, employing a slow-burn, textural approach from start to finish. Tassey’s vocal harmonies, layers of acoustic sounds, and intimate dialogues call comparisons to emotive songwriters like Laura Marling and the ladies of Warpaint. What serves as the foundation of Foreclosure is an innate and peaceful simpleness, an inward migration from her role as frontwoman for the feverish indie rock/jazz group People Like You. Get lost in the meditation of Foreclosure below. -Charley Ruddell





The Ballroom Thieves release bluesy, politically charged single “Do Something”

It’s been exactly one year since the presidential inauguration, one endlessly stressful and tumultuous year at that. This is no coincidence to Boston’s three piece indie/folk rock outfit The Ballroom Thieves, who released their new single “Do Something”, a bluesy, simmering plea to the abhorrent administration that currently occupies the White House. The band detailed in a statement to Baeble Music their feelings behind the new song:

"Now a year has passed and it's apparent that the patience we once championed is wholly wasted on an egomaniacal president who cares for nothing but his own enrichment. As such, the meaning behind this song has shifted with the times and it now stands as a letter for you, to him, from us. Patience has become a virtue of yesterday, and time's up."
