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





New Curtis Cooper Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Messy, the new album from Curtis Cooper, was recently unearthed. A transfixing torment registers throughout this collection of songs. Encircling lyrics of solitude will engulf the mind, creating a canvas of beautiful despair. Enlisting Scott Stitzer (of Mumblr) to produce and play an array of instruments, with Jack Zaferes occupying bass duties, these tracks creep into your head and take up temporary residence. It feels like a deeply personal release that pushes toward detonating grunge instrumentation at points, while still showcasing a folky feel, at others. Johnny Brenda’s will play host to Cooper’s record release celebration on Friday, January 19, where they'll be supported by Laser Background and Coping Skills.





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Julia Rainer

Julia Rainer began her music career in a puppet band at the age of 10, and “after hours of listening to Hank Williams and Leonard Cohen,” taking what she absorbed, and fine-tuning her songwriting skills on earlier EPs, the burgeoning Philly singer-songwriter beautifully pieces together a lifetime of experiences and emotions into her deeply personal first LP, a release “about the people, places and things you carry around with you.” Admittedly, Rainer was kind of on our periphery before, but with Spirits (Creep Records), she totally has our attention, and deserves yours as well. Dig into her latest below, and take a moment to learn more about our Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner HERE.





Michael Rocketship brings his quirky side to Alphaville on 11.18

Browsing through Michael Coleman/Michael Rocketship's rich discography is a little like getting to know a musical Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Under his real name, Coleman releases refined and clean sounding contemporary jazz records where he plays piano and synths. But when he uses the moniker Michael Rocketship, he unleashes his darker and quirkier side through an imaginative bedroom pop that incorporates math, psych and lo-fi elements. With three EPs released in the last year alone, Rocketship seems to be the dominant ID taking over Michael's musical presonality. You'll have a chance to get to know this side of him in person at Alphaville on 11.18. Check out single 'Down the Stairs,' streaming below.





Psych Rockers Triptides talk about guitar pedals on Delicious Audio

Since its appearance in the late '60s, psychedelic music has been inspiring hordes of musicians, and has probably been the main reason driving the guitar pedal frenzy of the last decade, since guitarists devoted to the genre seem to need an ever increasing number of stompboxes. The current indie music scene offers thousands of artists that reference psychedelia, from subtly to wholeheartedly. One of the bands that most vigorously (and unapologetically) embraces the genre in its authentic acception is Los Angeles' Triptides. With their vintage sounding songs that could have been written in the '60s, their recent release "Afterglow" manages to reference in one record anybody from early Pink Floyd to Jefferson Airplane, the Doors and even The Beatles and The Byrds during their most psych years. Of course, this kind of revival comes with a LOT of stompboxes - the band's guitarists Glenn and Josh were kind enough to walk us through them with our friends at Delicious Audio - check out the feature here!
