STEREO IS A LIE debut full-length out 2/8

Seems like good timing that one year after winning both the Readers' and the overall Deli Emerging Artist Poll, and in the midst of the current poll, 2010 champs STEREO IS A LIE are now ready to unveil their debut, eponymous full-length. The album - slated for release Feb. 8 - will also mark the debut release for the Austin-based boutique label Monolathe Recordings.  


Weekly Feature #233a: Minuature Tigers

Originally hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, Miniature Tigers have made the trek east to NYC like so many before them, in hope of leaving their own imprint on the local music scene. Unlike most of their peers though, they’ve left half the band behind. You’d expect this to create some practical issues for lead singer/guitarist Charlie Brand, but he’s keener to talk up the pros of maintaining some distance between him and his band mates. - Read Dean Van Nguyen's feature on Miniature Tigers here.


Gem Club, Humble Tripe, Jakob Battick and Friends & Slant of Light - 1/23 - Precinct

gem club

I'm really excited about this show on Sunday. This is the whole point of the Deli -- New England to introduce you to bands and sounds you haven't heard yet from your area and other parts of the country. The show is early on a Sunday, doors at 7:30 and first band on at 8pm. Look forward to seeing you. 

Gem Club -- 11pm

Beautiful and trippy, I fell in love with their new EP Acid and Everything.

Humble Tripe --10pm

Humble Tripe is an acoustic 2-3 piece led by folk singer and songwriter Shawn Luby. Shawn's based in Durham, NC but one of his bandmates lives in Boston.  

Jakob Battick and Friends --9pm 

Jakob Battick & Friends won last month's Deli band of the month, and for very good reason. The young artist along with his rotating cast of musicians are sonically pushing things in their hometown of Portland in the most delicately powerful way possible. Jakob mixes folk and atmospheric elements ...but brings a unique and more diverse edge to the stage that carves their sound out to stand wholly on it's own.' -Will Ryan

Slant of Light -- 8pm

Slant Of Light is a newer Boston-based Americana band.
