A Deli Premiere: Kris Kelly releases new album "Runaways" 08.30

"Runaways is a collection of very personal songs I would sing to myself when I felt alone, confused, hopeless, and needed to turn inward to process my struggle. I hope people will be able to relate to the universal themes in the songs and that they might find comfort in seeing their own experiences mirrored throughout the album."

Five years traveling in South America helped indie songwriter Kris Kelly discover love, loss, and home, all of which contributed to the songs on his upcoming record Runaways. The album, which comes out August 30th, features Kelly's atmospheric compositions with the touches of a production team who has worked with Ani DiFranco and Devendra Banhart, among others. Much of the album also centers around Kelly meeting his now-husband during his travels, and their search for home back when returning to the States as a married couple was legally impossible. Now that they've found home, to listen to Runaways is to understand the path of Kelly's journey from questioning into self-discovery. Take a listen to the album below, and here's Kris Kelly's Spotify profile. - Will Sisskind

New Track: "Graves" - Jeremiah Tall

Singer-songwriter Jeremiah Tall recently shared “Graves,” the lead single from his forthcoming album Bare Bones, which is scheduled to arrive on October 11. A grim sonic swirl sets the tone. Unearthing a lively folk-blues stomp, the prediction of a zombie apocalypse is heeded. The end is near, and you've been warned. Hopefully it won't come before Tall's performance at Philly Music Fest on Saturday, September 27 at World Cafe Live.





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)





New Track: "a friend." - Augusta Koch

Augusta Koch (Gladie, Sheena, Anika & Augusta, Cayetana) recently shared her latest solo effort, “a friend.,” which describes and observes thoughts and actions of isolating loneliness, within the search for connection. The sparse, instrumental backdrop allows the lyrical sincerity to shine. Simple Pleasures, the forthcoming EP from Sheena, Anika, and Augusta, is set to arrive on September 6 via Asian Man Records, and the trio is scheduled to perform at South Philly's TRUCK on Saturday, September 14.
