Thanks for Listening!

I never did a proper introduction when assuming role of Managing Editor of The Deli NYC, but, hello — my name is Connor Beckett McInerney, and I've served as editor for the Deli's NYC blog since November of last year. Today is my last day. 

I hope you've enjoyed the music that we've highlighted on this blog since my tenure began in late 2019 — much like my predecessor Paolo De Gregorio I sought to highlight the city's experimental, independent, and often overlooked artists to the best of my ability. 

The Deli was one of the first publications to pay me for my work as a critic when I first arrived in NYC several years ago, and stepping down feels a bit like "the end of an era" in a personal capacity. Nevertheless I am incredibly grateful to Paolo for giving me this tremendous opportunity. If you've enjoyed the music I've spotlighted on this blog, feel free to follow my personal Twitter account (hyperlinked above) and check out my radio show, LOCAL BOPS, which airs every Tuesday night on KPISS.fm

As a final note, I want to say thanks to everyone who submitted music, read the blog, or passed along a word of encouragement. I hope to see you at the gig someday.

Kindest regards,  
Connor
 

   

JOBS' experimentation stays controlled on "Opulent Fields," new LP out 8.7

“Opulent Field,” the latest video by NYC experimental quartet JOBS, feels simultaneously complex and minimalistic. Utilizing repetitive instrumental elements (namely guitar and cello), in tandem with a tightly-wound electronic percussive overlay, JOBS’ sound is hypnotic yet never overindulgent, relying upon precise interweaving of acoustic and synthetic parts to craft dreamily distant indie rock. Moreover, the band’s give-and-take approach to performance and the decision to keep their sound grounded makes for an intrepid-yet-quiet listen — stream it below, and keep an ear out for the band’s forthcoming endless birthdays, out August 7th.
