Queer attack from Brooklyn: PWR BTTM tours with Ra Ra Riot + plays SXSW

Eschewing mediocrity for a full-on queer punk motif, PWR BTTM is a punk duo sodomizing the status quo. Energetic and positive, the message of their music is uplifting, which pairs well with the group's DIY showmanship that grips its live showcases. Ben Hopkins and Liv Bruce plan on shocking at SXSW 2106; while their dynamic may be a bit off the beaten path, they don’t seem to care about what other people think, and there is nothing more punk rock than that. After the Austin festival, the band will embark on a tour in support of Ra Ra Riot. Check out their break out single "1994." - Lee Ackerley


Sons of an Illustrious Father release "Revol" LP + play SXSW

The New York-based trio Sons of an Illustrious Father - comprised of Lilah Larson, Ezra Miller and Josh Aubin - are making their SXSW debut this year on the heels of their new album "Revol," released on March 9 - check out their video for single "Post-Future" below, and if you are going to be in Austin next week, you can see them at Maggie Mae's on 03.16 and at Cheer Up Charlie's on 03.19 - more info here.


Playlist of NYC artists playing official SXSW shows

 Here's a playlist with (hopefully) most of the NYC artists playing SXSW this year - in random order.


Read The Deli's SXSW 2016 "PsycheDELIa" issue online! Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar on the cover

Check out the SXSW 2016 issue of The Deli Mag, now available online, and distributed in print next week in Austin during SXSW's Music Week. You'll find copies of it also at our SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space!

Yes, we've done things a little differently this time: we shaped this rag the size of a 7" record, and created a "concept" issue almost entirely dedicated to Psychedelia, with a feature by our editor Brian Chidester about how this musical genre has become more and more influential in the new millennium. The two cover artists, Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar, serve as the two extremes within which Psychedelia has expanded in recent years.

As usual, the issue also gathers:

- A lot of emerging artists (mostly psych this time),
- The winners of The Deli's regional Year End Polls for Emerging Artists,
- The winners of The Deli's Best of 2015 Readers' Polls,
- A section dedicated to the SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space

We hope you enjoy the read and get to know some awesome new music.
