Rotem premieres new album at two release shows on 09.01 and 09.02

Rotem is the type of artist for whom the codifier “experimental artist” is worn with pride. On his latest album, My Favorite Monster, the fusion of jazz with other genres explodes with colorful shrapnel. The guitars and drums would feel right at home on a Flying Lotus record, while the intense solos sound straight out of '70s prog-rock. This devotion to tinkering with his sound allows Rotem to play with tone and mood in interesting ways, producing songs like the gentle and sensual “My Favorite Monster” to segue into “My Favorite Things”, a fiery and claustrophobic political track featuring hip hop artist Cliche. Rotem performed at two separate release shows this past weekend at Nublu and Pete’s Candy Store, and will take his new material on tour across the US starting September 13. –Tucker Pennington

Uberphonics release cosmic new album 'Apogee'

 Here at the Deli, we vibe with all different types of music, and today I have something slightly out-of-the-box for you. The SoundCloud hashtags describe it pretty well, so let's take a look at those: #jam , #theremin , #funky ...you get where this is going? The Uberphonics new album Apogee definitely encompasses a mixture of jazz, funk, psych and rock. There are moments when the album feels trippier, such as in "selenocentric" and "overview effect," and then there are tracks where drums and guitar really let loose into all-out psych-rock jams ("Everybody's Famous" and "Body Buzz"). Once in a while, it's nice to listen to music for melodic lines and textures rather than for lyrics and structure. And Uberphonics have given us so much sonic detail to take in. -Geena Kloeppel

Debut Millennium Development Goals/Under Blood Red MOON-LITE EP Available for Streaming & Download

Millennium Development Goals/Under Blood Red MOON-LITE - or MDGUBRML - is the project of Derek Liedel (ex-Katana Girl). From the jump, Liedel introduces joyful moments of fever-dream meltdowns, fitted within the album’s well-executed synthesis of lo-fi folk and house music. History of Chemicals sounds like a Spotify shuffle that gets occasionally interrupted by absurdist departures into transcendental noise, starkly contrasting the bliss of familiarity with the existential challenge of the unknown. In a small amount of time, the EP offers plenty of cheerful headspaces and a good bit of indie pop splendor that’s also playfully disassociative. Take it for a spin. - Josh Kelly





New Mack Enemy EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A tormenting surge of psych-punk is welded together on Ow My Mynd, the latest EP from Mack Enemy. A degree of instrumental menace surrounds and streams ahead as the primal vocals rain down. Unrelenting intensity blends within a trippy, celestial component, creating a bridge to a new place of discovery. The immediate jolt of each song spins off into the mystery of the unknown. Who knows what will present itself next along the path.

New Track: "Body" - Roya

“Body” is featured on Egg, the new EP from Roya. The track emerges out of whispering vocals and guitar strums as a lo-fi buzz fills out the room. The momentum/strength builds as the line “so just try to pretend like you don't know my body” is emphasized and repeated, becoming a mantra of sorts. Whether the song is a monologue directed at an individual, who isn’t listening, or represents a separation or conflict between one’s thoughts and physical being, there’s a magnitude in its simplicity.
