New Track: "Too Much Time" - Stoops

Stoops recently shared a new track, “Too Much Time,” off their EP Singles. After a brief moment to find its sonic footing, the song rolls forward in joyous oddity. Pairing the bounce of percussion and keys with vocal harmonies, there’s a pleasant looseness to the recording. That head-in-the-clouds, daydream quality is temporarily interrupted by an audio interlude of hostility, provided by a Joe Pesci sample, before returning to its exuberant, brighter tones. Keep a look out for the band's debut full-length, The Syrup of Ipecac, and catch the quintet this Sunday, July 15 at The Barbary, supporting Sweet Moves and Cave Mode Shakes!





New Track: "Slick" - Rosie Thorne

Below is the debut single from Rosie Thorne, the new project from Mannequin Pussy's Marisa Dabice, Zach Sewall (Grave Goods, Vexxed), and Max Steen (Cold Fronts, Vexxed). "Slick" is the first of what will be a series of songs that the trio plans to release each month for the next year. Fleshing out the pop moments that are sometimes hinted in the Mannequin Pussy catalogue, Sewall and Steen once again team up to build an infectious, downtempo groove that perfectly complements the seductive lilt and thoughtful, shadowy prose that exudes from Dabice, creating an unexpectedly irresistible, electro-dance jam. We are already looking forward to Rosie Thorne's next installment, which really can't come soon enough for us.





Sean Henry premieres creepy single "The Ants", performs at Alphaville on 07.22

There’s a general feeling of creeping unease in Sean Henry’s first single “The Ants,” off his upcoming album Fink. The way his voice worms around your ear as he describes the murder of insects on a mass scale is vivid and unsettling. The rustic production only amplifies this eerie feeling; whereas other lo-fi artists use the aesthetic to communicate intimacy, Henry’s crumpled vocals and the slight effects draped over the single create the feeling of being trapped in the traumatized dreams of a child. The chorus, however, breaks into an assured incantation that repeats the line “Goodbye, all of my problems”, and the guitars pick up to create a quiet catharsis. “The Ants” is self-described as “soft grunge”, and this carries over into the tone and sound in a multitude of ways. The dynamic crescendos are muted without losing their potency. The warbled verses that are anxious and freaky shed their childlike persona for a matured reawakening each time the chorus hits. It makes sense that Henry would take advantage of Friday the 13 to release his debut album; his sound is unnerving and captivating, balancing the lo-fi sounds that border on ugly and vulnerable. You can watch the music video for "The Ants" below and see him live on July 22 at Alphaville. - Tucker Pennington





New Track: "Gaslight Anthem (The Song Not The Band)" - Thin Lips

Thin Lips have another endearing new single to share with us from their forthcoming full-length album Chosen Family. The beloved, former Dangerous Ponies members just dropped the humorously titled, "Gaslight Anthem (The Song Not The Band)," which also features backing vocals from local music pals Frances Quinlan (Hop Along), Brendan Lukens (Modern Baseball), and Zoe Reynolds (Kississippi). The LP is due out on July 27 via Philly's own Lame-O Records. Chrissy Tashjian, Mikey Tashjian, and Kyle Pulley are currently on tour with Hop Along, and will be back home for a sold-out show with Japandroid on Tuesday, July 24 at Boot & Saddle. If you missed out on tix for that evening, don't sleep on next month's performance with Slaughter Beach, Dog on Saturday, August 25 at PhilaMOCA. (Photo by Scott Troyan)





A Deli Premiere: The Vandelles share single “Techromancer” + play Mercury on 7/13

Returning from a lengthy hiatus, nyc noise-surfers The Vandelles are premiering their new single “Techromancer” here on the Deli, from their forthcoming album "Hate Will Bring Us Together."  Working on other projects during the break hasn't tempered the bands penchant for twangy guitars and California beach vibrations.   The rhythm section comes on even harder this time around with a circular throbbing bass line and aggressive thrashing percussion. The idea of creating a new word for the songs title by combining modern video gameplay (Technomancer) with the groundbreaking sci-fi cyberpunk classic Neuromancer is intriguing on a number of levels.  “I'd rather be dead than you, I'd rather be black and blue, I'll greet the darkness when it comes” establishes the initial vocal line.  The quieter intro sets up a series of sonic explosions, building to the Nirvanesque chorus that invites us to “...come and get it, come and get it from me – I 'm always ready,” accompanied by slashing power chords over pounding drums and bass.  The band will play live at The Mercury Lounge on 7/13 with Texas shredders Ume, who have recently released new material of their own. - Dave Cromwell
