Happy Birthday, Deli Magazine New England!

There are so many things to be grateful for today: family, friends, good food, good times. Here at Deli New England, we are grateful for one more thing, and that is the opportunity to cover New England’s always-thriving music scene. For ten years, we have been privileged to witness the rise of talented artists from Connecticut’s New York border to Maine’s Atlantic seaboard. Since the birth of this branch, on this date ten years ago, we have had our many editors explore with delight hip-hop acts, indie-pop darlings, rock-punks, and so much more. Below you will find nine posts from different editors of this magazine over the last ten years. A big thank you to Meghan Chiampa for kicking off this journey and letting me know of the special occasion at hand. Happy holidays and happy reading! - Rene Cobar

Uncola - New Psych Single "Cactus Throat", Monarch Tavern 12.13

Uncola are a new group in the ever growing Toronto psych scene. They have released their debut single “Cactus Throat”. This lo-fi track features excellent vocals with a perfect amount of echo and reverb. The vocals bring a nice contrast to the noisy garage sound of the instruments. The rhythm section drives this song while the guitar is free to make all kinds of sweet sustaining noises. Uncola will be playing The Monarch Tavern on Friday December 13th along with Wine Lips and BBQ Pope in support of The Effens LP Release Party. – Kris Gies

New Sipper single “Ghost” promises more indie soft jams on forthcoming EP

Sipper’s debut Adam Driver EP came out earlier this year and properly introduced us to Joe Beerman’s hushed, almost secretive songwriting and spare indie rock, but that hasn’t stopped him from getting in new single before we wrap 2019. Opting for a more acoustic, room filling sound, recently unveiled track “Ghost” carries much of the same easy listenability of the project’s previous release; Beerman is still cranking out catchy hooks coupled with minimalistic instrumentation while exploring different, increasingly psyche-tinged instrumentation. Better yet, as the first single off the band’s next, as-of-yet unnamed EP (out next year), it builds appropriate hype for those of us clamoring for more Sipper music (present company very much included); listen to it below. —Connor Beckett McInerney

PREMIERE: Brush's "Teenage Time Machine" is ambivalent rock for uncertain times

“All these plans, in God’s hands, what do they mean?” It’s with this uneasy question that New York slacker rock outfit Brush begin their new EP, Teenage Time Machine, indicative of the cautious worldview the band embodies over the course of the releases’s five tunes. Trudging drum beats, melodic, gain-heavy guitar lines, and a slack-jawed vocal delivery immediately conjure associations with 90s genre progenitors such as Pavement and Silver Jews, but Brush carve out a space of their own through of-the-times lyricism that embodies our contemporary cultural zeitgeist. They’re equally comfortable posing existential quandaries as they are reminiscing on love and life, pivoting from the uncertain queries of title track opener “Teenage Time Machine” to sunny, melodic riffs on tracks like “Brian” and closer “Chelsea,” a feedback-heavy drive that concludes this extended play on a high note. Regardless of Brush’s ambivalence about the present, they won’t hesitate to describe things as they see them, marching confidently into an unwritten and terrifying future; it is that sincerity that will define Teenage Time Machine as one of 2019’s standout local releases. Stream the EP here, and watch their new music video below. —Connor Beckett McInerney

New Forms debut raucous record "I don't want to live my life again"

Sore vocal cords, odd time signatures, and math-rock sonic corridors that lead to destructive instrumentals are all part of the norm for Chester, New Hampshire's New Forms. The group's latest album, I don’t want to live my life again, is a collection of post-hardcore tunes that are fast and furious. "Fortunato" viciously splits between thunderous noise and intricate electric guitar melodies in true Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde fashion. "Spirals" descends with finesse into moshpit-fueling insanity that is as cathartic as you want it to be. Where tracks like "Ember Twin" embrace the mighty spirit of screamo, other songs like "[Redacted]" surprise with their tough-atmospheric sounds. New Forms embrace the type of crushing sound you are glad to get hit with at home, or inside the pit. Stream "Spirals" below and drop into the post-hardcore madness. - Rene Cobar, photo by Kyle Musser
