Pace Car Joe Debuts New EP, Plays Thunder Road 4/21

 Boston-based alt-rockers, Pace Car Joe, are in preparations to release a brand new EP, Moonlight Convicts, unto the world.  Just a few months after January's Ghost of the Boulevard (which earned them an artist-of-the-month nod), the band is sure to repeat, with another collection of catchy crowd-pleasers that will keep them on our radar.  Check them out with Jake Hill and Deep Creek at Thunder Road Music Club on 4/21 and hit the link below for their new single, "Camouflaged By Happiness".  -Brian Varneke





The Northeastern Railroads Releases Debut Album, Plays Out of the Blue Gallery 4/22

The Northeastern Railroads, brain-child of Boston's Tony Moureilles, is a full-bodied wall of sound, nuanced and expressive.  A pleasant mix of indie-rock and shoegaze flavors, Tony's debut record, Hope, is a dynamic study of unconventional songwriting, keeping an experimental flair (at times, somewhat Bowie-esque) without sacrificing the integrity of the song.    Check him out at his album release party, 4/22 at Out of the Blue Gallery.  -Brian Varneke





Buzz Alert: Unique Psych-Rock from Carinae

 An homage a distant star, far brighter than our own Sun, Massachusetts natives Carinae produce their own brand of psych-rock as individual and unique as their name.  Their latest, Zephyr Window, has a strong focus on vocals and lyrical content, an element overlooked by many of their colleagues, without losing their laid-back grooves.  Recorded in a ten-hour period, the album voyages the spectrum of the band's sound, never feeling rushed or unprepared, a testiment to the talent displayed.  If you find yourself in Brooklyn this week, check them out at Alphaville on 3/30. -Brian Varneke

Best New England Emerging Artists 2017: The Deli's Poll Results

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging New England Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!

1. Crumb is an outfit that takes the pleasantly dissonant atmosphere of smooth jazz and molds it into psych rock masterpieces. Their songs glide along steady pace, revealing highly skilled instrumentation without abandoning the groove. There are long stretches of jam that prove remiscent of classic indie rockers like Lotus Plaza, but there are moments of unbridled wierdness and pure chaos, sprinkled in to add some spice to the psychedelic sonic brew. Crumb is the new must listen for psych fans in New England.

2. XR Tabs is a band to which it's nearly impossible to assign a definitive genre. Their work contains elements of experimental noise rock, post-punk, indie rock, and electronica. They traverse unclaimed musical territory almost as a rule, making listening a wholly unexpected experience.

---

3. Pompo is an alt rock band that blends elements of funk and blues to create a hybrid, modern alternative rock sound. With lengthy, funk jams that serve as an instant reminder of early Red Hot Chili Peppers, they've honed a classic sound and made it their own.

The Water Cycle Drops Debut EP, other boys

 DIY indie rockers The Water Cycle released their debut EP, other boys, last month.  An endearing, organic record, infused with catchy melodies and relatable lyrics, other boys is a surprisingly refreshing entrance for the Boston trio.  A strong indie base, with hints of surf and folk make us eager to hear more from this emerging artist.  -Brian Varneke
