A Deli Premiere: No Swoon share single “Blame The Messenger” + play Elsewhere on 8/8

Fresh off of their impressive live show appearance at Northside Fest, noisy dream-gazers No Swoon premiere their latest track “Blame The Messenger” here on The Deli. Establishing its soaring melody from the very first note, a triumphant swirl of guitar and keyboards float above deep thudding drums. Vocalist (and guitarist) Tasha Abbott sings in a sultry and elongated style that references Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins. “Blame the messenger and dusty words,” she sings (extended out as “wo-o-o-ords”) against the band's momentary angular accents. “Tongue's all wet (pronounced “way-a-yet”), flooding the curb” points towards a theme of desire and apprehension. With nearly if not all the bass coming from keyboards, the tracks underpinnings are buzzier and less note driven. A central ambient interlude ultimately leads to one more lengthy instrumental break, complete with elevated vocal outro. The band will play a free show this Wednesday 8/8 at Elsewhere's Rooftop with Rodes Rollins. - Dave Cromwell





New Another Michael EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Land, the new EP from the quartet of Another Michael, is now available via Topshelf Records. “About” kicks things off with its clear-headed, stream-of-consciousness lyrics. ”Go There” expands on a fluid, piano-backend groove, in an ultra smooth R&B manner. “Connect” contemplates in a laidback jog of concise layers, while “Score” closes the album out, stacking sound in a tight expansion of rhythm and ascending, uniting vocals.





Haley Heynderickx's Tiny Desk Performance

Here at the Deli, we love it when great local artists get the recognition they deserve. Local favorite Haley Heynderickx was not only just featured in Rolling Stone, but she also just got on NPR’s Tiny Desk! Heynderickx, known for rich vocals and a uniquely dark folksy style, has just returned to town after a summer on tour.

Her Tiny Desk performance is true to form. Heynderickx is endearing as always, tender both in attitude and in her music. At one point the band gives 5 seconds of “intimate eye contact” to the camera, so as to show the people back home that they love them. Well Haley, you're equally as loved and we’re glad to have you back.

New Free Cake For Every Creature LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Free Cake For Every Creature's new LP The Bluest Star is out now via Double Double Whammy. Singer-songwriter Katie Bennett returned to the comfort of her home, after her first proper studio release, Talking Quietly Of Anything With You, allowing the latest batch of songs and recordings to organically evolve. With touring bandmates Heeyoon Won and Francis Lyons, along with a array of local music pals, Bennett beautifully captures her thoughts and experiences, as she learns to work through the mundane, day-to-day hustle of adulthood, while still remaining self-motivated and inspired. You can take in all these feels at Free Cake For Every Creature's record release show tonight at Everybody Hits, with Brooklyn's Told Slant, Friendship, and Slow Ref.





New Borzoi Boy EP Available for Streaming & Download

Alexandra Gordon, a.k.a. Borzoi Boy, shared a new batch of songs, packaged as the EP, Good Happy. Synth/keys delicately guide these daydreaming, honest tales. Hope and fascination are ever-present in these reflective and inquisitively-voiced compositions. An ability to articulate the personal, emotive elements of the narrative and simultaneously evaluate from the outside looking in grabs and holds ones attention.
