Deli Premiere: Boketto The Wolf Loses Their Cool With New Single

 You may remember Boston alt-folk/rockers, Boketto the Wolf, from our coverage of their debut EP, Sleepless back in December.  Since we left them, they have certainly been busy, with a SXSW Texas tour and a brand new single debuting today, here at The Deli.  "Losing My Cool" is another shining example of what brought Boketto to our attention in the first place:  unique, catchy, yet emotional songwriting and vocals, mixed with dynamic instrumentals, never overstated.  Recorded at Power Station New England by Evan Bakke (Pinwheel, Prinze George, Joss Stone), it is an ode to young relationships, an anthem for anyone who has tried to play it cool and failed.  Hit the link below to check out "Losing My Cool" and catch Boketto the Wolf at Thunder Road on June 6/3 (The Boston Pride Kickoff) or Midway Cafe 6/20. -Brian Varneke





Q&A with Boston slack rockers Three Run Jack

Three Run Jack is a four piece band from Boston. Its members, Dave, Nick, Brett, and Brad, write fuzzy, sloppy, '90s sounding garage songs with punk overtones that prove remiscent of classics like Pavement and Guided By Voices. Distorted guitars, totally unapologetic talk-sing vocals and distant, washy percussion make for a pleasantly nostalgic strain of lo-fi indie rock that we enjoyed so much we had to (virtually) sit down with the four of them for a chat about the band's past, present, and future - read the Q&A with the band here.





Deli Premiere: Louis Apollon Releases Video for New Single, You Are a Dream

 We come across a lot of great vocalists here, at The Deli, but few invoke the classic soul-vibe quite like Boston singer-songwriter Louis Apollon.  A recent Berklee grad, Louis is preparing to release his debut album, Free To Be, in September.  The album "explores all there is to the human experience through short stories and experiences".  Fortunately for us, we don't have to wait until the fall for a taste of the new record.  The first single, "You Are a Dream", embodies the character of 70s soul giants, like Al Green, with Louis' own jazz/folk flavor.  Louis' voice has a soothing quality, his dulcet tones blending with the no-less-impressive fingerwork of his guitar.  With the help of Aleif Hamdan on guitar, Achal Murthy on bass, and Kaushlesh Purohit on cajon (who also engineered the track), Louis creates a nostalgically romantic musical venture, a balance of simplicity and technical prowess.  Check out the video below and catch Louis at The Midway Cafe on May 22. -Brian Varneke





Deli Premiere: Flight of Fire Release New Video for "One More Sip"

 Fresh off of their win at The New England Music Awards (Best in State-Massachusetts), Boston rockers, Flight of Fire continue to take the NE music scene by force.  They have arrived, armed to the teeth with their album Path of the Phoenix, a 7-song concept album that spins a tale about "the treacherous journey of doing whatever it takes to follow your own truth".  Their latest single and video for "One More Sip" (filmed at Hard Rock Boston), showcases one of the more blistering cuts on the album, while giving the viewer a taste of their high energy live set.  Screaming guitars, grueling riffs, and powerhouse vocals abound as the all-female quartet take on Boston and beyond.  Check them out at House of Blues Foundation Room on 5/12 with blindspot, Katey and the Illicit, and Wonder City.  You can also catch them at the Mill City Ballroom on 5/18 as part of The Break Into Action Tour. -Brian Varneke
