Glamour Assassins let the good times roll in "Everything Dissolves"

The five artists that form the Connecticut collective known as Glamour Assassins have released a new EP we urge you listen to. The new wave-glazed Everything Dissolves contains in it tracks like “Yellow Dogs” showcasing fist-pumping choruses that are quite sticky, and funky guitar riffs to spare. The title-track is pensive, with a stout bassline that provides a foundation for anthemic chants that would give The Killers a run for their money. In “2nd Amendment Blues,” the group lets loose, with a dance track that is powered by a drumbeat as speedy as it is majestic. The quintet lets the colorful synth embellishments take over in “Darkness Lights The Way,” and by then, the sonic canvas the group was filling is a glorious portrait of themselves. Stream the fantastically fun track “2nd Amendment Blues” below and let go of worries. - Rene Cobar





A Deli Premiere: "Align" by Mike Morrissey

Somerville’s Mike Morrissey is back at it with a breezy single that will kick off your weekend, and year, splendidly. Truthfully, here at the deli, we must confess we are big fans of what Morrissey brings to the deep pool of talent that resides in the city northwest of Boston he calls home: the artist has a quiet confidence about him that shines through his alternating indie-rock/indie-folk/Americana styles. In the Grant Bloom co-produced “Align,” Mike is playing with the latter style as he allows the song to brew, giving time to each acoustic guitar strum, each water-drop synth embellishment, each subterranean-like bass bump; Mike’s unaltered and tranquil vocals complete the portrait worth admiring. “Align” is a snapshot of a moment in time, brief in conception perhaps but lasting in memory; the song is a fragment to hold on to, and its tune rings clear to all who have ever stopped to remember a good time, a good person. You can catch Mike performing inside the Canopy Room of Bow Market on January 26th or visit the Aeronaut Brewing Company, where he hosts a monthly open mic, on February 5th. The track was mastered by Luke Sullivan and the bright artwork is by Belinda Riggs. We are delighted to premiere Mike’s single here for you; that alto saxophone by Callum Mackenzie at the start of the song is buttery smooth. - Rene Cobar





A Deli Premiere: "Underwater" by Faxi Moto

With each introductory chord, ardent and lingering, Boston-based group Faxi Moto unearths its riveting debut single “Underwater,” a sophisticated-nostalgic song comprised of the purest elements of indie-rock; a piece that transports wholly takes shape from profound emotion and submerges listeners with fierce intent. The elegant vocals of singer/bassist Anne Marie Green move ever so gently past crystal-clear guitar riffs, the vibrato, rich as it is, colors delightfully. Like water glistening stones downstream, the music eventually picks up its pace until reaching its sonic lake of dreamy harmonies, snappy drum patterns, and frothy basslines. The collective of Green, Kyle Maldjian (vocals, guitar), Max Williams (guitar), Enric Adillon (synth), and Alejandro Hervella (drums), is primed for success: five young minds from Boston’s collegiate scene crafting their live shows, writing thoughtful lyrics and energetic tunes, fearlessly embracing their skills—what more do you want? We are calling it: this is a must-see band for 2020, and you can catch it at Midway Cafe on February 3rd. Here at the deli New England, we are fans and proud to debut this beautiful single for all. - Rene Cobar





Yolanda releases “Sick Pike” with animated video

If you’re feeling stressed out--or feeling anything at all--I suggest plugging into one of Yolanda’s newest jams, “Sick Pike.” The song is dreamy drift into trippy town and the accompany video matches that vibe to a t-shirt. The animated short features a flower-eyed dino-creature mounting a horse and galloping into a forest. Illustrator and guitarist for the group (as well as Bells Atlas, Perhapsy) has really expanded as an illustrator into some fun and elaborate territory and we’re all for it. The single was recorded mostly at home and mixed mostly at Tiny Telephone. We missed their release show but stay tuned more more more and tune into this lovely dreamy find. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





More Fatter’s delightful “Yeah You” video hits waves

Last week funky pop boys More Fatter released the video for their single “Yeah You” and it is a fun and spunky time. Filmed at San Francisco’s Dolores Park, the video features the cuatro doing synchronized, shoeless dance moves, some poppin’ lady dancers and loads of onlookers and smilers. Props to the kiddo who slides down the slide right into the band. Like most of their tracks, “Yeah You” has got some great trombone highlights and it’s fun to see those things in action. Check out More Fatter’s video and let yourself feel the young energy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor
