SoCal Hunnies - Groovy Soul Inspired Rock Trio New Single "Don't Ever Leave Your Man or Woman"

Don’t let the geography of the name fool ya, SoCal Hunnies are a groovy three piece band based in Toronto. Their single “Don’t Ever Leave Your Man or Woman” has a quick beat with a funky bassline that really pushed the track into the soul inspired world where they like to live. The guitar solos are extremely cool in this track going from a spacious, chilled out zone into a hectic shred all while keeping the track  flowing nicely. SoCal Hunnies will be playing the Springtide Music Festival in Uxbridge on April 26th. – Kris Gies

   

Miss Grit dazzle on their new "Talk Talk" EP + performs @ Elsewhere on 04.25

There’s a wonderful sense of balance brought to the table by Miss Grit’s new Talk Talk EP, both in its approach to chaotic-tinged songwriting and the brilliant pallet of sounds explored. Each of the four songs toggle between airy and orchestral synthesizers that careen into fuzzy barrages of sound or simply glitch out at the seams. The marriage between the gutsy and the beautifully arranged is a marvel to witness, and this release is proving to be a standout for 2019. You can catch Miss Grit at Elsewhere on April 26 before they embark on a short U.K. tour. –Tucker Pennington

Safari Room releases acoustic OOKO Studio live session on 04.12

Last time we checked in on Safari Room, they had just released their EP Actual Feelings, and had spent quite a bit of time in the studio recording new music. They released some of that music in the form of February's single "One Day Here", which also included the B-side "The Rain". Now, Safari Room will release an EP of acoustic versions of their songs, which they recorded in a partnership with art conglomerate OOKO Studios, a recording studio and DIY event hosting site based in Berry Hill. The band chose one song from each of their albums to feature on the acoustic EP, with each of them representing a different step forward for them. "Glass Box" from their debut EP represents loneliness and time passing, while "Vices" from the Actual Feelings EP goes happier and more cathartic with the theme of knowing where you need to be. Meanwhile, "Around The Bend" from the album of the same name covers friendships ending, relationships ebbing and flowing, and dealing with the constant shuffle of loss and growth. You can listen to the acoustic versions of these tracks when Safari Room drops the OOKO Session Live EP on April 12th. Take a listen to The Deli's premiere of the EP below. - Will Sisskind

   

New Track: "Class Killer" - Josh Levinsky & The Schmoos

A new single, “Class Killer,” recently arrived via Josh Levinsky & The Shmoos. The song occupies a conversational tone as lines are punctuated by backend exclamations. A confident & somewhat cocky narrator walks through the halls in an agitated manner as an acoustic, garage-punk tone is achieved. Opposing viewpoints are traded back & forth as a thoughtful aggression is released.
