altopalo on the cover of Issue #56 of The Deli NYC - now out digitally!

Hola, peoples into emerging music!

The winter issue of The Deli NYC (our 56th!) is now up on the cloud (HERE), featuring glitch-soul luminaries altopalo on its cover!

The issue also tackles the current shift of everything cool from Brooklyn to Queens, and - as usual - highlights many local bands we dig (and their favorite gear).

There's also a special about the NAMM show, which we will participate in with our own Stompbox Booth featuring tons of emerging pedal manufacturers!

Fresh Buzz and NYC Records of the Month sections are never skipped!

Look out for the print version, out at the end of the month.

Bryson Cone: "Destination Nightmare"

Bryson Cone dropped his song “Destination Nightmare,” and it’s every bit as dreamy and jazzy as it sounds. This song takes you waltzing on the moon while a full band, complete with holographic keytars, plays in the background. The distortion of Cone’s voice is romantic and dreamy, but also has some more serious notes. He keeps the track, and thus the audience, focused. This in turn allows for a fuller appreciation of the song’s artistry. It is an intricately layered song, which makes sense given Cone’s background in mixed media and sound collage. Cone’s talent is made perfectly clear with “Destination Nightmare.” We can’t wait to see where he heads next.

Juracán is fresh off his release of Niño, so you should take advantage of any opportunity to see it performed live as soon as you can. It’s a guaranteed night of soft, moody music. If you have some old friends you want to catch up with, or just want to nod off to some calming tunes, make sure to pop in. Doors are at 6, and you can find more info on the facebook page here.

Deathlist Song Release

This past month Deathlist released a new song, “8 Eyes” off their upcoming album A Canyon. Elusive and sly, “8 Eyes” is a hard song to get a hold of. However, that just means it’s all the more rewarding when you do, even if it’s only for a moment. The anxiety-packed lyrics provide the right amount of tension for the more cheerful riffs and beats present in the song. Listening to it is a hypnotic, immersive experience. It brings up a lot of feelings. Getting a glimpse of that one sliver of moonlight on an otherwise dark night. The first breath of cold, fresh air taken after dancing in a packed, sweaty crowd. It’s a great song to start the year off with.
 
Deathlist's album release party will be taking place at The Fixin' To, Sunday February 9th. Abronia will also be playing a set, along with new project John-Paul H.

Girl Fest 2019

Well, we’re officially a few days into the new year and everyone is beginning to gear up for whatever surprises might be in store. Personally, I would love to get my year off on the right foot, which is why I’m so excited about Girl Fest 2019. Taking place next Thursday January 10th, Girl Fest celebrates female artists in the Pacific Northwest. The organizers set up a stunning and fiery lineup this year. Starting 2019 off with an empowered and united attitude, artists such as Dirty Princess, Kayela J, and Cry Babe will be playing sets. Each act brings something unique and powerful to the table.
