New Track: "The Problem Is Us" - Gladie

Pairing partners Augusta Koch (Cayetana) and Matt Schimelfenig (Three Man Cannon), a new project, Gladie, has emerged. Sean Hallock (Rozwell Kid) and Candice Martello (Hemming) currently round the band into form. With a debut EP Everyone is Talking About You due out on May 17, the band’s first single “The Problem Is Us” has just arrived. Akin to the reverberating buzz of traffic, the song sets an ambient beginning. Then, Koch delivers personal observations, which gather momentum as the instrumentation (keys, percussion, etc.) is further fleshed out, joined vocally by Schimelfenig to create an emotive yet calming discourse. The band is slated to perform at Everybody Hits on Wednesday, May 23, alongside Doll Baby, Bat Boy, and Big Nothing.





A Deli Premiere: "Cut it Out" by DONCAT, to play Rickshaw Stop (5.31)

Duncan Nielsen is the vocalist and guitarist behind DONCAT, the psychedelic bedroom-pop artist who is quickly rising up the ranks of the San Francisco scene. With a forthcoming LP, entitled Preservation of the Spirit, due out on May 18th and a list of shared bills that includes Ty Segall, it’s clear that Nielsen is on the brink of something big. That means his upcoming performance at Rickshaw Stop on May 31st should definitely be on your list.

The Deli SF is happy to be premiering “Cut it Out” (streaming below), a moody and memorable single that primarily revolves around the use of one minor chord -- giving the track what Nielsen described as "a kind of desolte feel." Lyrically, he sees the song as “an impetus to back up your actions and feelings with true action.” Happy streaming! - Lilly Milman





New Light Heat LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

It’s been quite some time since we’ve heard from former Mazarin frontman Quentin Stoltzfus's Light Heat. However, like a long-time friend making an unexpected call, in the form of an album, we received V yesterday. Whimsically buoyant instrumentation cultivates a delicately-detailed, daydreaming state. Get swept away in its heartfelt, sensory-rich experimental-pop. 





New Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band Live EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band recently dropped a live EP, entitled Rare Dreams: Solar Live 2​.​27​.​18, capturing a three-song sampling of their performance at London’s Café Oto. Bookended by Peter Kerlin & Jason Robira (both of Sunwatchers), Forsyth launches into a cosmic sojourn. The amped-up trio sound connected and ready to push sonic boundaries at rocket speed. Wedged in between a couple of originals ("Dreaming In The Non-Dream" & "The First 10 Minutes of Cocksucker Blues"), Forsyth also lyrically adapts and personally contextualizes a cover of Neil Young’s “Don’t Be Denied,” off 1973's Time Fades Away. You can catch Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band tear things up this Saturday, May 12 at PhilaMOCA, supported by Sunwatchers.





A Deli Premiere: single "Adieu" from NH-based People Like You

It’s been a little less than a year since The Deli New England last heard from People Like You, the eclectic and electric gypsy-folk-rockers hailing from Portsmouth, NH. And they haven’t wasted a second of that time. Their forthcoming third studio album, Dancing on the Dead, shows the band at their best—they’re tighter than ever before, and they haven’t given up on their rootsy experimental sound, either. People Like You is filling in the gap left by other, freak-folk greats—perhaps most specficially, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zeroes. Of course, they don’t fit perfectly in the space left by the now-disbanded group, because the music of People Like You is entirely their own. There’s nothing derivative about it.

We’re happy to be premiering the single “Adieu” from Dancing on the Dead, which will be released on May 11th. The release of the album will kickstart a summer tour, beginning at Fury’s Publick House in Dover, NH. - Lilly Milman, photo by Lily Eye
