A Deli Premiere: "Underwater" by Faxi Moto

With each introductory chord, ardent and lingering, Boston-based group Faxi Moto unearths its riveting debut single “Underwater,” a sophisticated-nostalgic song comprised of the purest elements of indie-rock; a piece that transports wholly takes shape from profound emotion and submerges listeners with fierce intent. The elegant vocals of singer/bassist Anne Marie Green move ever so gently past crystal-clear guitar riffs, the vibrato, rich as it is, colors delightfully. Like water glistening stones downstream, the music eventually picks up its pace until reaching its sonic lake of dreamy harmonies, snappy drum patterns, and robust basslines. The collective of Green, Kyle Maldjian (vocals, guitar), Max Williams (guitar), Enric Adillon (synth), and Alejandro Hervella (drums), is primed for success: five young minds from Boston’s collegiate scene crafting their live shows, writing thoughtful lyrics and energetic tunes, fearlessly embracing evident skills—what more do you want? We are calling it: this is a must-see band for 2020, and you can catch it at Midway Cafe on February 3rd. Here at the deli New England, we are fans and proud to debut this beautiful single for all. - Rene Cobar





Yolanda releases “Sick Pike” with animated video

If you’re feeling stressed out--or feeling anything at all--I suggest plugging into one of Yolanda’s newest jams, “Sick Pike.” The song is dreamy drift into trippy town and the accompany video matches that vibe to a t-shirt. The animated short features a flower-eyed dino-creature mounting a horse and galloping into a forest. Illustrator and guitarist for the group (as well as Bells Atlas, Perhapsy) has really expanded as an illustrator into some fun and elaborate territory and we’re all for it. The single was recorded mostly at home and mixed mostly at Tiny Telephone. We missed their release show but stay tuned more more more and tune into this lovely dreamy find. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





More Fatter’s delightful “Yeah You” video hits waves

Last week funky pop boys More Fatter released the video for their single “Yeah You” and it is a fun and spunky time. Filmed at San Francisco’s Dolores Park, the video features the cuatro doing synchronized, shoeless dance moves, some poppin’ lady dancers and loads of onlookers and smilers. Props to the kiddo who slides down the slide right into the band. Like most of their tracks, “Yeah You” has got some great trombone highlights and it’s fun to see those things in action. Check out More Fatter’s video and let yourself feel the young energy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor





The Saxophones release "Lamplighter" off sophomore album

Today Oakland's The Saxophones released the second single off their forthcoming, sophomore album Eternity Bay (out March 6 on Full Time Hobby). The song is a fusion of jazz, quiet pop and folk. Vocalist Alexi Erenkov says of the album, "While this record was influenced by a broad range of music the through line seems to be conveying a strong mood or sense of place. I love music that transports listeners to another space, whether it's Jonathan Richman making you feel like you’re walking the streets of Boston in 'I Love Hot Nights' or Arthur Lyman transporting you to a Hawaiian hotel lobby in the 50s." Erenkov and wife Alison Alderdice create songs that live up to that transportive feel. Catch their latest single here and be on the look out for upcoming tour dates and Eternity Bay. -Lucille Faulkner





Low Ceilings serves up pure alt-folk in latest record "Learn to Sew"

For those foggy New England days and beyond, the folk music of Windsor Connecticut’s Ben Mueller is uplifting: the sparkly electric guitar chords, lively drum beats, and merry-reflective lyrics brighten up the most somber of moods. His latest work under the project Low Ceilings titled Learn to Sew has tracks like “Alter Ego” which showcase all the previously mentioned elements of cheer while songs like “Forget the Fence” have an indie-rock edge to them, with reverb-dipped vocals leading the way past arpeggiating bass runs and shivering cymbals. The title-track gallops at a soothing pace as its rich harmonies add to the feeling of tranquility, and all seems well. The album, recorded at Janky Studios in Windsor, is indie-folk in its purest essence: exquisite with a slight spice. Listen to the contrast of overdriven guitar chords and acoustic strums in “Everybody Knows” from the new record streaming below. - Rene Cobar, photo by Abigail Baldwin
