New Radiator Hospital LP Available for Streaming

As today's slight chill reminds us of the colder days just around the corner, we have the words of Sam Cook-Parrott to keep us warm, fuzzy and nostalgic. Radiator Hospital's new full-length album, Play The Songs You Like, is now available for streaming. The LP consists of fifteen new tracks and a cover of Martha's "Sycamore," and will be released officially on October 20 via Salinas Records. Radiator Hospital is heading out on tour later this week with Outer Spaces in support of the album, and you can catch them in Philly this Friday at the First Unitarian Church, alongside Strawberry Runners and Eight as well.

New Track: "Ghost With The Most" - Acid Orphan

Andrea O. Bullard, a.k.a. Acid Orphan from trip-hop outfit Etheric Felines, dropped a new single, “Ghost With The Most,” via Magic Death Sounds. DJ Wassup Gina sets the table with an ominous snare-snapping beat, as Acid Orphan turns the tables, converting/transforming negative external impressions into fuel, sparking an unflinching, roaring, lyrical lioness. It’s the type of song that prepares one to take any obstacle, dismissing all doubters. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open for the emcee's collaboration with producers Wassup Gina and Ian Saint Laurent on her debut LP. (Photo by Elijah Snyder-Vidmar)

Weekend Warrior, October 13 - 15

Dear Deli Readers,

It’s been an honor covering Philly’s underground music scene for the past nine years, and we truly appreciate all who have been so supportive of our site and our mission. And of course, mucho love goes out to the all the local area musicians who have been kind enough to share their personal art with us. Without you, The Deli would certainly not exist. (Well, maybe in some form or another, but we might be covering some of our other loves like food, weed or puppies. ;-)

We truly enjoy taking this time to celebrate our wonderful Philly music community with you, so join us this Saturday night at PhilaMOCA for The Deli Philly’s 9th Anniversary Bash! This year, we will be donating all proceeds from the event to the Southern Poverty Law Center, a nonprofit organization “dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable member of our society,” and we’d like to thank Deli faves The Retinas, Them Jones, and So Totally for donating their time and talents to entertain all of us for the evening. Now, if you’ve attended any of our anniversary celebrations in the past, then you know how we do it. If not, more deets are available HERE, but there will also be plenty of surprises that we can’t mention just yet.

Looking forward to partying down with you soon!

Cheers,

Q.D. Tran & The Deli Staff

 

P.S.

Shout out to Modern Baseball (who may be performing their final shows for the foreseeable future this weekend at Union Tranfer) and former Deli Anniversary alums Suburban Living (who will be returning home from tour with Frankie Rose, this Sunday at Ortlieb’s)!

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Flamingo Chicks

Toward the tail end of this past summer, Flamingo Chicks (formerly known as Space Cadets) released their debut EP XOXOXO. What originally started as a two-piece project, Charlie Dubuc, Jason Loux, Becka Lundy, and Thor Speeler soon discovered that they “truly clicked” as a quartet, combining their varied and learned musical backgrounds to make cathartic garage-punk that sometimes finds itself wafting over psych-pop terrain (which may stem from their communal love for of Montreal). The band recently found their way atop our Featured Artist(s) Poll, so we are happy to be able to share more about Flamingo Chicks HERE.





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Flamingo Chicks

Toward the tail end of this past summer, Flamingo Chicks (formerly known as Space Cadets) released their debut EP XOXOXO. What originally started as a two-piece project, Charlie Dubuc, Jason Loux, Becka Lundy, and Thor Speeler soon discovered that they “truly clicked” as a quartet, combining their varied and learned musical backgrounds to make cathartic garage-punk that sometimes finds itself wafting over psych-pop terrain (which may stem from their communal love for of Montreal). The band recently found their way atop our Featured Artist(s) Poll, so we are happy to be able to share more about Flamingo Chicks below.

The Deli: How did you start making music?

Flamingo Chicks: We each have our own musical backgrounds (Charlie and Jason have been in other projects, while Becka went to school for classical voice performance and Thor is in school for musical theatre), but Flamingo Chicks started as a two-piece. We found this lineup as a four-piece about a year ago, and realized that we truly clicked.

TD: Where did the name Flamingo Chicks come from?

FC: We were actually originally called Space Cadets, but decided to change it for a name that was more unique and that fit us better. Flamingo Chicks came from a documentary with baby flamingos in it, and we just thought it had a nice ring to it.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences?

FC: of Montreal, Neutral Milk Hotel, Fleet Foxes, The Mountain Goats.

TD: What artists (local, national and/or international) are you currently listening to?

FC: Becka listens to a lot of Kishi Bashi, of Montreal, and Dan Deacon lately. Locally, they love Animal Show (NYC), Kinda Alright (Philly), and Wyldflowers (Philly). Jason loves Kurt Vile and Courtney Barnett. Arthur Shea (of Joy Again) and Alex G are Jason’s fav local bands. Charlie has been listening to a lot of house music and math rock.

TD: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

FC: As a band most everyone has seen of Montreal together, and collectively the first album we acquired together was a blues album by instrument luthier Stephen Wishnevski. If you’re interested, give a listen to the psychedelic hymn, “Mr. Gravity”.

TD: What do you love about Philly?

FC: The music scene and the fact that we all met here. Also the FOOD.

TD: What do you hate about Philly?

FC: As with most cities, gentrification is messed up, and Philly is no different in that aspect.

TD: What are your plans for the rest of 2017?

FC: We’re planning on continuing to play shows, write, and record. Keep an eye out for new releases!

TD: What was your most memorable live show?

FC: We just recently played a live show in Hatboro, PA at Big Heads Town and Country. It was our first bar show on a main stage with lights and a sound guy and tons of monitors. We didn’t even know we could sound so tight with that kind of tech! We got a big crowd, and opened up for some INCREDIBLE bands, and got free beer all night. Can’t ask much more than that for a memorable show.

TD: What's your favorite thing to get at the deli?

FC: Crunchy seaweed snacks and EGG FUCKING SALAD!
