Boston's Dutch Tulips to embark on East Coast tour (6.21)

Perhaps what’s most intriguing about the Boston indie rock quartet Dutch Tulips is how quickly they establish themselves as the Real Thing. Listening to the first few minutes of their debut self-titled EP is enough to catch onto the infectious and fun fuzzy jangle rock. Where others may fall victim to the cringe-filled symptoms of trying too hard with a track named “Love You Bae,” the teflon rockers are somehow able to skirt by with a smile, a great hook and an earnest delivery. Dutch Tulips are preparing to kick off a tour at the Downtown Stage in Willimantic Connecticut on June 21 and will be on the road through July 1. Stream the full EP below. - Lilly Milman

Bodega is on the cover of the 54th issue of The Deli NYC!

If there's a turn of phrase we kind of detest here at The Deli is "taking the scene by storm." It's one of those generic prefab sentences that ring insincere. But then again, sometimes, some bands do that - kind of rare, but it happens, right? And sometimes, on a hot day like today, being lazy is kind of inevitable. So... yes! Brooklyn's Bodega are taking the NYC scene by storm with their blend of post-punk and pop and their super-fun live shows. That, and their somewhat familiar name, are the main reasons why they are on the cover of the new, spring 2018 issue of The Deli! 

The issue, our 54th NYC one, is now up online and you can read it here.

It's an issue linked to the biggest event for musicians we've ever organized, which will host a Stompbox Exhibit, a Synth Expo and a Vintage Guitar Exchange in a Bushwick art gallery called Absurd Conclave - hope to see you there!

Fish House release debut EP 'Burns From the Rope' & play Bella Luna (6.7)

The debut EP entitled Burns From the Rope from Boston-via-Mystic trio Fish House drips the cool and collected confidence of seasoned vets. It’s evident from the first track, “Young People” (streaming below), that there is a certain chemistry pushing this project forward. Perhaps this has something to do with the fact that the three members — Jake Benavidez (guitar, bass, vox), Kyle Torr-Brown (drums, vox), and Adam Jacey (guitar, bass, vox) — have known each other for a little over a decade. These tracks are summery without being overbearing; while undeniably upbeat, there’s definitely nothing forced here. The foot-tapping, head-bobbing, soul-infused indie rock of Fish House is not forcing you to feel anything, but rather giving you a gentle push towards the idea of taking a bad situation and making something beautiful out of it. Catch their next show at Bella Luna in Boston on June 7. - Lilly Milman, photo by Carter Howe





Jason Ebbs brings back the best of alt-rock on 'Familiar Villains' EP

The most recent EP Familiar Villains by Boston-based alt-rocker Jason Ebbs is a nostalgic reminder of the aggressively emotion-driven lyricism, youthfully optimistic delivery, and polished guitars that made alt-rock great in the mid-oughts. The EP is filled with plenty of clever arrangements and catchy lines—like the chorus of “Brick Wall” (streaming below) which quips “She’s a brick wall / a flash of passion / but there’s nothing on the other side,” which shine a light on a strong new voice in the Boston indie rock scene. - Lilly Milman

JUICE releases single "Heartbreak in a Box" & tours NE

The new single, “Heartbreak In A Box” (streaming below), from Boston’s seven-piece group JUICE delivers the dose of sweet, upbeat neo-soul that—at this point—is to be expected from them. The septet met as freshmen at Boston College, and after winning a Battle of the Bands contest in 2014, have been bringing their funk-influenced play on pop to venues all over New England. Their sophomore LP Workin’ On Lovin’ will be released on June 15. They are currently on tour, with upcoming shows in Burlington, VT on June 9, Nantucket on June 12, and Boston on June 15. - Lilly Milman
