The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: The Mysteries

The roots of Philly’s indie music scene have always been influenced by psych-pop/rock outfits like Mazarin, Dr. Dog, and The War on Drugs. So it should be no surprise that you’ll find a group such as The Mysteries atop our Featured Artist(s) Poll. Started by guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Anthony Marchione (and a kiss), you’ll find the band channeling The Doors as well as more contemporary torchbearers of the beloved genres. The local quartet is set to crack open the festivities for this Saturday’s Queen of Jeans’s record release celebration with Louie Louie at Kung Fu Necktie, but first - unlock more of the mysteries of The Mysteries in our interview with Marchione HERE.


New Abi Reimold LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Wriggling the new record from Abi Reimold has arrived.  Available via Sad Cactus Records, Reimold orchestrates surges of tormenting candor and turbulent musicality. It strikes a chord between immediacy, with an emotive depth. She is set to perform on bill, which also includes Curtis Cooper, Emmett Drueding, and Julia Rainer at Johnny Brenda’s on March 15th

New Music Video: "Ghost" - The Jordyn Show

This video for “Ghost” by The Jordyn Show is truly haunting. Set off by an electro-percussive pulse, Jordyn Kramer delivers soulful r&b vocals that exhibit strength while addressing the issues/concerns that resonate in our lives.  The eerie glow of spectrum-changing imagery enhances the murky chill.


New Track: "Wait, Wait" - Lantern

The anticipation increases when listening to “Wait, Wait” the latest song to emerge from Lantern’s forthcoming album Black Highways And Green Garden Roads, slated for release via Sophomore Lounge (vinyl) and Fixture Records (cassette) on February 19.  The song channels a vintage 60’s girl group/ soul sound.  Smooth soulful harmony and simple crisp instrumentation provide a polish while still highlighting a yearning and the voice-over into place rather well.  (Photo By Peter Woodford)
