The Deli and WKDU Present Arc in Round’s EP Release Party w/Golden Ages and Post Post at JB’s Dec. 2!

We are very excited to announce that The Deli Magazine will be co-presenting with our new friends from Drexel University’s WKDU 91.7 the EP Release Party for Arc in Round’s Diagonal Fields at Johnny Brenda’s on Thursday, December 2 w/Golden Ages and Post Post! Yes, we know. We hear a lot of buzzing in our ears too. And we are lovin’ it! We’re guessing by now that you know Arc in Round (formerly Relay) is the pet project of recording studio genius and one of our favorite producers Jeff Zeigler. He has finally found time out of his busy schedule to work on his own glorious vision, and he’d like to share a taste of it with all of us so consider yourselves invited to this very special occasion. Also expect a full length to follow this spring. If you’ve never heard of Golden Ages and Post Post, then you really need to get with the program, but we’re guessing these college students are down with some tutoring. Penn Cognitive Science major Francis Tseng has already garnered some serious media love from such outlets as Pitchfork, The Fader and XLR8R just to name a few with his mix of a more dance-y Animal Collective sound which definitely gets our hearts pumpin’ and our minds wanderin’. Bryn Mawr and Haverford College coeds Post Post have certainly been the recent toast of the town with their infectiously catchy tunes, but expect a little more noise coming from the rambuctious crew's newer material. If you’ve been keeping up with The Deli, then you’ve already been rockin’ this shit for a while. Well, we look forward to rockin’ it with you on this fine, fine evening of great music (and plenty of drinks among other things)! - The Deli Staff

The track "Ghostsong" from Daniel Knox has been around for awhile, but the Chris Hefner directed video recently surfaced on vimeo. The track is also available as a single on iTunes.


NYC artists on the rise: Make Out - Debut EP out in 2011.

Make Out is Junior Senior's Jesper Mortensen's new band. After the Danish, London based duo broke up, Mortensen left England for New York to find someone who shared his musical vision. From what we can tell from the only track available online (streaming here) the newly formed band plays energetic guitar rock reminiscent in equal doses of Pixies and Smashing Pumpkins, with maybe a slightly punkier edge - teenagers will probably love this! Debut EP release scheduled for the early spring of 2011.
