New Video: Audiotree Live Session - Kississippi

On March 6, 2017, Kississippi visited the Audiotree Live studio to record a session that was just released. Amid playing a set featuring a solid sampling of songs from We Have No Future, We're All Doomed, the band discusses a variety of topics including Brandon Flowers, what’s in their current music rotation, and influential music from their youth. On the influential front, they also delve into their relationship with Slingshot Dakota and how they’re recent tour together was impacted by a hurricane. Kississippi will be performing a solo set at Trash House on Friday, April 7 with Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Dollar Signs, and Teenage Halloween.

Daddy Issues Releases Single Ahead of New Album "Deep Dream"

Daddy Issues is back with a bang, releasing a fiery single, “In Your Head,” from their upcoming album, Deep Dream. The tune chronicles the mess of emotion left behind after a breakup, marrying rage and melancholy in a way that brings 90s alt rock and grunge classics like Bikini Kill or Nirvana to mind. Sonically, this is the heaviest work the trio has ever made. The guitar tone is full bodied, with enough fuzz to make the highs crackle while the bass thunderously fills in the low end. The production is high quality, moving in the opposite direction of their previously lo-fi/diy style and bringing new clarity to the fuzzy, grunge revival they execute so well.  This is, without a doubt, the Nashville alt rock band to watch in 2017.

Best New England Emerging Artists 2017: The Deli's Poll Results

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging New England Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!

1. Crumb is an outfit that takes the pleasantly dissonant atmosphere of smooth jazz and molds it into psych rock masterpieces. Their songs glide along steady pace, revealing highly skilled instrumentation without abandoning the groove. There are long stretches of jam that prove remiscent of classic indie rockers like Lotus Plaza, but there are moments of unbridled wierdness and pure chaos, sprinkled in to add some spice to the psychedelic sonic brew. Crumb is the new must listen for psych fans in New England.

2. XR Tabs is a band to which it's nearly impossible to assign a definitive genre. Their work contains elements of experimental noise rock, post-punk, indie rock, and electronica. They traverse unclaimed musical territory almost as a rule, making listening a wholly unexpected experience.

---

3. Pompo is an alt rock band that blends elements of funk and blues to create a hybrid, modern alternative rock sound. With lengthy, funk jams that serve as an instant reminder of early Red Hot Chili Peppers, they've honed a classic sound and made it their own.

COPPER CROWN - BOVINE FEST #2 SUNDAY!

Copper Crown are bringing a unique alt-punk-ska sound to the Toronto scene. They released their debut self titled EP last year. All of the band members come from different music backgrounds with several influences so it's hard and frowned upon to label Copper Crown under one genre. Basically the band sounds like classic California ska bands of the 90's with Dido on vocals. They will be playing at Bovine Fest #2 at Bovine Sex Club on March 26th. - Kris Gies

Industrial act Pharmakon announces new release, plays BK Bazaar 04.14

Most people (not just musicians) come to the Big Apple full of dreams, to leave it within a few years, when its frantic pace, crazy costs, and tight spaces have become unbearable. Pharmakon, the experimental, insane sounding industrial project of producer Margaret Chardiet, is the product of a human being who's never given up to NYC: that's where she was born and raised, currently calling Far Rockaway, Queens, home. Listening to her new track "Transmission" (streaming), from upcoming new album "Contact," make us wonder whether the track's sound represents the sublimination of a psyche brought to the edge of insanity by a city that notoriously provides shrinks with lots of work. Is this what people escape from, when they leave NYC? Is Transmission the big apple's own sonic version of Edvard Munch's painting The Scream? We'll have a chance to experience, and exorcize, its primal desperation live, at Brooklyn Bazaar, on April 14th.
