A Deli premiere: The Falling Birds' driving EP "What Is There To Talk About"

Blending folk, punk, and early-90s grunge into their own sound, Brooklyn's duo The Falling Birds are offering an intriguing combination of genres supported by that crucial (and too often missing) ingredient known as 'quality songwriting.' We are premiering right here, right now, their new EP, 'What Is There To Talk About.' The record, streaming below, is set for an official release on February 17th, and includes single "Anything Worse", which was co-produced by Brian Speaker - who has worked with Crazy & The Brains among others. The release party is scheduled for February 16th at Rockwood Music Hall's Stage 2 in Manhattan's Lower East Side. - Will Sisskind


Yuma wins The Deli Readers' Best of Austin Poll for Indie Rock/Pop Category

It's no surprise to see the charismatic loungy indie quartet, Yuma, atop the readers poll for 'Best Emerging Indie Rock Artist of 2016'. Technically proficient but structurally unfettered, Yuma curates a refreshing dynamic of psychedlic-infused prog rock. The real lure of the group are their live performances which demand a no-gimmick focus on their melodies and choruses yet allows the listener to dance and lose themselves in the band's intrinsic joviality. Yuma's momentum continues to snowball, and 2017 should hold a myriad new milestones.


New Track: "New Dream" - Dulls

Fall languidly into the void of Dulls' new single, “New Dream,” before abruptly being snatched away in the turbulent waves of fuzzed-out guitar. The recording from Philly dream-pop/shoegaze four-piece reveals a giant leap forward in production from the group's self-titled debut EP. Recorded and mixed by John Ceparano (of The Stargazer Lilies), it’s the latest off the band’s forthcoming album, Moon Violet, due out February 24. Dulls are also set to open for No Joy that same evening at Kung Fu Necktie. (Photo by Caitlin Vivian)


Whatever Whatever Releases New Single "House Boy"

 With their new single "House Boy", Boston alt-rockers Whatever Whatever have re-asserted themselves as buzzworthy newcomers to the New England scene.  If you missed their debut EP, Who's This, we encourage you to go back and check it out.  The two works combined create a relevant and individual voice, both lyrically and musically, that is rare for a band of their limited discography.  "House Boy" (produced by Converse Rubber Tracks producer, David Minehan) is a taste of things to come, and we can't wait to see where their road leads next. -Brian Varneke
