A Deli Premiere: "Cup b/w Coffee" by Divorce Cop

Portland, Maine's Divorce Cop sucker-punches you with a unique brand of noise rock, and somehow you are not mad. The band mauls drum sets, deforms basslines, and sings with drunken cheer in its raucous dual single "Cup b/w Coffee." The brand new two-headed sonic monster may be short, but its sound is frightful-delightful fun. "Cup" is unhinged drum pounding accompanied by a sensitive string-instrument melody, together they rise like dirty spume and let drip a lively chorus and a gooey bassline. "Coffee" leans more indie, but keeps the noise high: the track is turbulent, exciting, and the dynamic electric guitar work cannot be overlooked. The dual single release show is set for this evening at the Apohadion Theater in the band's hometown. The 7" is out now via Salty Speakers, and us here at the deli are thrilled to premiere the tracks for you below. - Rene Cobar





Debut Amby Moho Demos Available for Streaming

Andy Molholt (Laser Background, Coughy, Speedy Ortiz) recently shared a collection of five demos, under the moniker of Amby Moho. The set of recordings is a tranquil, melodic, lo-fi sampling of what the DIY Philly music vet has been up to of late. We are looking forward to seeing/hearing where and in what form these songs will take shape next. Laser Background is slated to perform at Ortlieb's on Friday, October 18, with Jimmy Whispers and Sitcom. (Photo by Marie Alyse)





New Will Henriksen LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Nothing Left Behind is the new LP from Will Henriksen, which is available now via local label Sleeper Records. Backed by Andrew Keller (Snow Caps), Jack Washburn (Remember Sports), as well as Will Kennedy and Ari Ratner, the ensemble creates subtle instrumental arrangements that lay the foundation for candid, endearing songwriting. With transportive lyricism, reinforced by melodic warmth, these recordings easily relate and adhere. Just allow them to do so. (Photo by Ari Ratner)





Boot's "EP" remains (un)comfortably indoors

Indoor drama is a central theme to Brooklyn indie trio Boot’s debut EP, finding both comfort and claustrophobia in the time spent at home. Each of the extended play’s four tracks set a scene with two players, with each performance a soliloquy that revels in the coziness of intimacy, or squirms under unescapable pressure. From opener “Heaven Is A Place In Queens,” which details the simple pleasures of suburban living over dreamy arpeggios, to “Let’s Go To Bed,” wherein the protagonist lands himself on the couch for things that should have remained unsaid, Boot has a talent for rendering the highs and lows of domestic living in a way that feels ubiquitous. The EP’s instrumental accompaniment feels equally homespun; bright, lofi guitar work and melodic syncopation lend a calm comfort to each track’s performance, breaking only for an explosive solo on “Tally Up” to close this effort on a high note. Stream it below. -Connor Beckett McInerney
