Abbi Press dances with herself and lemons in new video "Butterfly Effect"

Abbi Press has released a stunning video for her song "Butterfly Effect," a danceable indie-electronic tune chock-full of whimsical synth textures and accentuated by lightly, sparse percussive elements. The video, gorgeously colored and filmed almost entirely in slow-motion is dreamlike and mysterious. The integral recurring motif of the lemon is both striking and haunting- though I can't decide which feeling leaves more of an impact. One thing's for sure: this video is seriously cool, and a real treat to watch. -Geena Kloeppel

Album premiere: Fieldings' debut LP "Soft Tissue" - live at Alphaville on 11.18

Dream pop group Fieldings will perform at Alphaville on November 18th to celebrate the release of their debut LP, Soft Tissue. It's their first major release in a few years, but like the group's previous EPs and singles, tracks come with the chilling lilt of Lucinda Hearn's voice. Joining the five-piece on the bill are Philly-based musician Andrew Conklin, multi-instrumentalist Renata Zeiguer, and Michael Rocketship, an experimental group featuring members of tUnE-yArDs. If you can't wait to hear Fieldings live, check out all of Soft Tissue below in this exclusive Deli premiere. - Will Sisskind

Maura Lynch of Darlings drops solo release on 12.08

Blush is the new solo project of Brooklyn singer-songwriter Maura Lynch (previously keys and backing vocals in Darlings). With its distant, reverberated vocals, first single Daisy Chain (streaming below) seems to confirm Maura's preference for (beautiful) melodies that work around your ears, rather than in front of them. The tracks' sleepy attitude and plodding pace place it squarely in the dream pop niche - heck, even the lyrics are about dreams! According to Bandcamp, the full record will drop on December 8th, but we couldn't find a date for the release show.


Jaunt - Jangle Pop Rocker's New Single "Machined"

Hamilton jangly-pop rockers Jaunt are back with a brand new tune “Machined”. This tune has a softer feel with more electronic influences than I have heard from them before. Less Demarco and more Homeshake this time around. According to the band this song is about “recalling a memory you’d like to forget, over-analyzing to the point of uncertainty.” Which is something I think we can all relate to. This is a very interesting track with different influences flowing in and out as the song progresses. Jaunt plays Call the Office in London on November 16th for Mauno’s Release Party. – Kris Gies

A Deli Premiere: Milan to Minsk drop new video "Welcome to Hitler"

Brooklyn-based art pop quartet, Milan to Minsk, is gearing up to release their latest EP, Welcome to Hitler (out 12/1, EP release on 12.06 at Trans-Pecos), but for fans interested in getting a glimpse of what's to come, the Deli is excited to premiere the band's new video for the album's title track. As the title may have you guess, the album offers a timely observation on what forces elevate people in different positions of power, however the new video is unexpectedly entertaining in a fun way, and its bright colors and whimsical feel reads like a trippy Wes Anderson flick. With smooth lounge-style vocals, whirling instrumentals and a mind-melding saxophone solo, "Welcome to Hitler," is a strange and shimmering track, and easily our latest earworm. Stream the video below. - Olivia Sisinni
