New Track: "Jamaican Plain" - Sore Eros & Kurt Vile

Below is the patient, instrumental title track from Sore Eros & Kurt Vile's forthcoming EP Jamaican Plain, named after a section in Boston, MA where it was recorded and Vile once resided. It will be available on vinyl and digitally on November 5 via Care In The Community Recordings.


Weekly Feature: The Stationary Set

Since forming in 2009, The Stationary Set had their fair share of big venue performances. They’ve shared the stage with Phoenix and Mumford & Sons and most recently played a sold out show at Highline Ballroom along with January Jane. The band played The Deli's CMJ show at Rockwood and is recording an EP over the course of the winter, so stay tuned for more warm and fuzzy goodness.

Weekend Warrior, November 1 - 3

So have you heard the new Far-Out Fangtooth album Borrowed Time? It’s really fuckin’ good! That’s why it’s our Album of the Month. You can read our review of it HERE. The macabre psych-rock four-piece will be celebrating its release this Saturday at The Boot & Saddle. Have you been to The Boot & Saddle yet? Well, I have, and it’s a great sounding room, so hearing Far-Out Fangtooth tear through their new material is an opportune time to do so. They’ll also be joined by noisy, metal-acid rockers Harsh Vibes, Lantern guitar-wielding maestro Zachary Devereux Fairbrother, and LODRO, who is currently a Deli NYC Featured Artist(s) Poll nominee. It’s definitely a not-to-be-missed evening in South Philly! The Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 9pm, 21+ (Photo by Justin Pittney) - Q.D. Tran

Ancient Sky announces upcoming album + opens for Psychic Ills on 11.18

We are having a rather "psych" day here at The Deli - lots of spacey emerging NYC artists to blog about! Last but not least in this category is Brooklyn quartet Ancient Sky, which just unveiled the single streaming below (entitled "Wishing Well"). The band's sound, with its droney, spacey and rather epic character, sits squarely in "psych rock" territory, and is somewhat reminiscent of The Occasion, a great (and rather obscure) NYC act that graced the cover of The Deli's 5th issue back in 2005. Ancient Sky's debut album 'All Get Out' will be released on November 14, and four days later the band will open for Psychic Ills at the BSP Lounge in Kingston, NY.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best psych songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!


New Videos: "I Think I Love You" (Live) & "Tangled Envisioning" (Live) - Waxahatchee

Oh boy...this is really a crystal-clear recording from Last.fm and Gibson's session with Katie Crutchfield, a.k.a. Waxahatchee. She stopped in to play acoustic versions of "I Think I Love You," off 2012's American Weekend, and Cerulean Salt's "Tangled Envisioning" while on tour in the UK. Waxahatchee just also announced some winter tour dates with Cayetana in tow and a Philly show on Sunday, January 26 at the First Unitarian Church. Props to Sunchord Media Production on some beautiful sounding footage.



Which of these local acts should be our next DC Area Artist of the Month?
