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

Morgan Delt talks about gear on Delicious Audio

LA-based Morgan Delt crafts acid-tinged tracks that are meant to be seen with your third eye. His music is blissful and hazy, with his soft vocals stretching across lush, textured instrumentals and sweet melodies. With such an expansive sound, our friends at Delicious Audio were curious about the kind of gear that goes into the making of his music, and Morgan was kind enough to share a bit about the equipment he uses on his latest record, Phase Zero, out on Sub-Pop Records. Read the Q&A here. - Olivia Sisinni





Darkwing - Lameonia - a 2015 EP worth looking back on

We recently stumbled upon music by New Jersey’s Darkwing, a post-grunge band from Leonia. Their 2015 EP, revealingly titled 'Lameonia,' is a fun, fast-paced record filled with fast paced rock'n'roll anthems. The distorted sound of the guitars, vocals, and drums (like on the opening track “201 Carousel,” streaming below) would make it a perfect soundtrack for a Tony Hawk game. The nostalgic late '90s early '00s sound is distingushed by solid songwriting chops and an attitude that, refreshingly, is not that slacking. Check out the EP below and keep an eye on their live schedule. - Pearse Devlin





New Track: "John Wilkes Booth" - TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb

It's been over three years since we've had a new album from TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb. Well, this evening at Johnny Brenda's, you'll have a chance to cop his new EP Dancing Out the Door at the band's vinyl release celebration with Lightninging and Haunted Homes. The album officially drops on October 13 via Good Behavior Records, but you can take a listen to its raucous, piano-boogie lead single, "John Wilkes Booth," which is also featured on the label's Hurricane Relief compilation. All proceeds will be going to the victims of Harvey and Irma.
