New Line Leader LP Available for Streaming & Download

Wilt, the freshly released LP from Line Leader, rattles the sonic cage. Produced by Kevin Brusha, the band cultivates an unabashed, cosmic-transmitted series of songs. Purposely jarring as the menacing, musical torrent takes on the obstacles lying within its path, a Tasmanian devil of unified sound ravages your being. Line Leader unapologetically melds the noise of raw material with a distinct, melodic core. (Photo by Stavi Xinou)





New Music Video: "Forever Overhead" - Cherry

Cherry recently shared a crunchy, new single called "Forever Overhead," which premiered over at Post-Trash. The mischievous, childhood reflection features Lame-O Records' Eric Osman bashing away on the drums, and it is also accompanied by a hazy collection of footage, directed by Spenser Colmbs. "Dumbness," Cherry's first full-length album, will be out on September 29 via Lame-O, and the record release celebration will be held on Saturday, October 7 at Boot & Saddle, where they'll be joined by Yankee Bluff and Eight.





Alt folk artist Cape Francis celebrates debut release at Mercury on 09.22

Cape Francis is the solo-project of Kevin Olken Henthorn and features music that neatly fits into a self-made nexus of indie folk/rock/pop and “post” iterations of each. Cape Francis is able to oscillate between slow, melancholic elegies for what is lost (“Iditarod”) and heart-felt indie anthems (“5 in the Morning”). Regardless of presentation, Cape Francis skillfully evokes Northeastern wistful angst. His debut album “Falling into Pieces” is out September 22nd, and NYC’s Mercury Lounge will be hosting the release show on September 29th. - Amanda Ogea

The Beaches - New Video is "Money"

Named after the area in Toronto in which they grew up, The Beaches are just about ready to explode. These gals know how to rock n' roll. They have just released their first single “Money” from their upcoming album. Rippin' tune with sensible, catchy melodies and a 60’s stoner voice that’s almost in Grace Slick territory. They are getting ready to release their first full length album on October 13th and will be touring North America with Death From Above 1979 for the fall. The final stop on the tour will be right here in Toronto on December 1st at The Phoenix. I dig their style, easily one of the bands you need to know right now. – Kris Gies





Shilpa Ray celebrates LP release show at Pianos 09.20 & 09.21

Within the The Deli's archives we commended Shilpa Ray several times -- lauding her noir music, stubborn-yet-honest lyrics, and unapologetic delivery -- but her newest work is doing more than that. Though her new September LP isn't out yet, she gives us a glimpse of what's to come with new single, “EMT Police and the Fire Department”. This song is one of a dystopian Lower East Side, so abject it requires the EMT, police, and the fire department to be called. "The air was so thick, you cut it with a knife, and the crowds were so thick, it would make you wanna cut them with a knife" she recants through spoken word over what resembles a sound check. The story’s setting degrades as the song shapes together, and she repeats the title over a building drumbeat, ultimately exploding unlike anything we’ve seen from her -- her jarring lyricism taking on the shape of a new beast delivered through ferocious yelps. This is as unforgiving as Ray has ever gotten. Door Girl, the upcoming LP, is inspired by her time working at Pianos; it’s only fitting her album release will be celebrated there two nights in a row, this coming September 20th and 21st. - Pearse Devlin
