Deli Reders! 

The Best of NYC issue 2017 is out digitally (physically soon too!), with glorious garage rockers Baby Shakes gracing its cover! The super fun quartet topped our Best of NYC Poll for Emerging NYC Artists earlier this year, which earned them the cover of this issue - go see them live if you can!

Besides featuring more than 90 of the best emerging NYC bands organized by genre, the issue is also focused on the our free, educational event for musicians called NYC MixCon! Musicians located in or near Manhattan should take this incredible no cost opportunity to learn about mixing on July 8/9 - check out the list of incredible producers involved here and RSVP to the single presentation(s) you are interested in attending.

Vacant Lots release new album Endless Night, confirm two US shows and European tour

Following up on their critically acclaimed 2014 debut album “Departure,” the NYC/Burlington duo Vacant Lots have released sophomore LP “Endless Night.”  Building off of a previously established psych-drone base, Jared Artaud and Brian MacFadyen introduce new sonic elements to their sound. Uncharacteristically, “Night Nurse” (streaming below) adds mechanized electronics and robotic vocals to twangy guitar lines, suggesting a digitized outlaw world portrayed in sci-fi dramas like HBO’s Westworld; the Krafter-esque experiment works.  “Pleasure & Pain” mimic Rolling Stones-style chords and sprinkle otherworldly keyboard elements around an attenuated vocal delivery, while  “Elevation” delves further into electro-dance patterns that skirt the appeal of a band like Depeche Mode.  Reaching the albums longest track at over five and a half minutes, “Empty Space” serves up a trance groove paired with spoken-word vocals.  Eight new tracks in all, the inclusion of nyc underground legend Alan Vega of Suicide’s posthumous scream-of-conscious poetic howl on closer “Suicide Note” delivers the desired validation.  The album can be heard in its entirety here on Spotify. - Dave Cromwell

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





Paper Castles Play The Monkey House 4/2

 Burlington indie-rock outfit Paper Castles is an exceptional voice coming from the still-snowy landscapes of Vermont.  Alternating between melancholy and optimistic (sometimes both simultaneously), their album, Vague Era, is a must for your last-remnants-of-winter playlist.  Strong psychedelic roots, uniquely catchy pop sensibilities, and introspective songwriting will keep these songs on repeat.  Catch them at The Monkey House in Winooski, VT on 4/2 with NE-HI and J Bengoy.  Philly and NYC readers can also catch them locally later this month. -Brian Varneke





The Deli's Austin '17 Issue is online! The Synths and Pedals Issue

Deli Readers,

We've been publishing the yearly Austin issue of The Deli (coinciding with SXSW) since 2011, and it's our only print issue that's not exclusively focused on just NYC artists. 

After last year's fun, "PsycheDelic" approach, we decided to dedicate this year's issue almost entirely to synth and pedals (and bands of course!), in an effort to promote our Austin Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Expo - which, if you are a gear geek heading to Austin next week, should not miss!

However, the highlight of this issue is an article about women and technology. Hope you enjoy it!

LISTEN TO A PLAYLIST OF THIS ISSUE HERE (or below)!

P.S. You'll see the printed issue in Austin next week and in NYC the week after.
