Thelma releases sophomore LP "The Only Thing" 02.23 at Secret Project Robot

Is it a paradox for playfulness and gravity to exist in the same breath? It might be easy to jump to that conclusion, but if we’ve learned anything from Kate Bush, it’s that whimsy can often be a great vessel for complexity. If anyone has taken that message to heart, it would be Natasha Jacobs, the brain behind Brooklyn based musical project Thelma. Her debut self titled album, an alt-folk meditation on chronic illness and loss, brimmed with unconventionality, whether it be from a surprising electronic breakdown or a yelping vocal performance. Jacobs writes songs that practically do dances around your mind, distracting you with baroque glitter for just a moment before pulling you back to reality again with a masterful lyric. Thelma is poised to release her second album The Only Thing on February 22nd (with release party at Secret Project Robot the day after) Below you can have a listen to single “The Only Thing”, a lyrical exploration of identity that practically saunters into your ears. - Sunny Betz





New Track: "WHO WHAT WEAR" - MINT

Recorded, mixed and mastered by Kyle Gilbride (Waxahatchee, Dark Thoughts, Yowler), a new single, “WHO WHAT WEAR,” has materialized from the punk quartet of MINT. Driving bass pushes the tempo as a smooth but on-the-verge-of-frantic vocal delivery describes how the clothes you wear serves as a window into your personality (or at least, the outside world forms opinions based on what they think your clothing, and by extension, image represents). It's a high-speed streetcar that tears forward almost speeding off the rails in a mad rush, while still holding it all together. You can catch MINT at Cousin Danny’s on Monday, March 25, along with Buffalo’s Science Man.





New Track: "Spoon or Fork" - AllegrA

Yet, Not Enough, the forthcoming EP from AllegrA, is set to arrive on March 12 via Citrus City Records. “Spoon or Fork,” its lead single, captures the picturesque, dreamy qualities of a relationship's beginning. Getting to know each other while exploring a new, untarnished residence, there’s an inherent sun, shining through the blind's warmth, as every aspect appears to glimmer optimistically. Then, amid those shimmering qualities, heart-racing instrumentals run lead with guitar riffs, punctuated by percussion, providing a breaking-loose element. (Photo by CJ Simavi)





A Deli Premiere: Catch Prichard’s “You’re the Worst”

The folks in Catch Prichard just can’t get away with doing anything less than epic. Like their prior EP, Eskota, tracks off Utter Disbelief maintain an undercurrent of Americana, this time with heightened, richer pedals and strings, dark synths and the occasional sax guest. Single “You’re the Worst” is one of the strongest off the upcoming release, though quite frankly, it’s hard to choose. Frontman Sawyer Gebauer has one of the most unique vocal stylings around. He’s a Johnny Cash meets a Leonard Cohen twisted with some Bill Callahan and a touch of Springsteen. Gebauer’s deep, guttural baritone radiates through “You’re the Worst,” bringing life and tough emotion to the song. Pre-purchase the first six tracks off Utter Disbelief here, and be sure to check out their upcoming shows. Lovely. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

Wine Lips - New Record 02.27 w/ North American Tour

Toronto based power trio Wine Lips are getting’ set to release their latest record “Stressor” on February 27th and have just dropped their second single. “Electric Lady” is a rippin’ garage track with ear worm hooks making a deadly combo of rock n’ roll. The video features singer/guitarist Cam Hillborn gettin’ all wine lipped and stumblin’ around the city. It’s definitely a tune that’ll make you wanna drink… Wine Lips are heading out on tour of Canada and the States finishing off with their hometown Release Party at the Horseshoe Tavern on April 5th with Pale Lips, Vypers and Fade Awaays. – Kris Gies
