The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Julia Rainer

Julia Rainer began her music career in a puppet band at the age of 10, and “after hours of listening to Hank Williams and Leonard Cohen,” taking what she absorbed, and fine-tuning her songwriting skills on earlier EPs, the burgeoning Philly singer-songwriter beautifully pieces together a lifetime of experiences and emotions into her deeply personal first LP, a release “about the people, places and things you carry around with you.” Admittedly, Rainer was kind of on our periphery before, but with Spirits (Creep Records), she totally has our attention, and deserves yours as well. Dig into her latest below, and take a moment to learn more about our Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner HERE.





Michael Rocketship brings his quirky side to Alphaville on 11.18

Browsing through Michael Coleman/Michael Rocketship's rich discography is a little like getting to know a musical Dr. Jekyll / Mr. Hyde. Under his real name, Coleman releases refined and clean sounding contemporary jazz records where he plays piano and synths. But when he uses the moniker Michael Rocketship, he unleashes his darker and quirkier side through an imaginative bedroom pop that incorporates math, psych and lo-fi elements. With three EPs released in the last year alone, Rocketship seems to be the dominant ID taking over Michael's musical presonality. You'll have a chance to get to know this side of him in person at Alphaville on 11.18. Check out single 'Down the Stairs,' streaming below.





Maitri premieres music video for "Reminder" off new LP "After Glow"

Maitri have just released a new LP called After Glow, from which they've also released a new music video for the track "Reminder". "Reminder" -- like the other songs off of the album -- captures the band's experimental blend of indie rock, jazz, funk, and dream pop. The song builds from a tense groove about the drudgery of life into an explosive soundscape which ends in a final discordant, fading synth chord. The music video also showcases the emotion behind the track: Vocalist Caroline Davis, with a painted face, stumbles through cityscapes and forests, before dipping her head into a pond and then letting herself succumb to the heat of the Sun. Watch the video for "Reminder" below. - Will Sisskind

New Aunt Dracula LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Scott Daly, a.k.a. Aunt Dracula, is at it again with the newly unveiled full-length album Freaker. A bombardment of mesmerizing, menacing, experimental beats takes one into a twisted tent of fantastic strangeness. Assimilate to the alternative reality, as dance-pulsating grooves and the murky vocal arrangement fade into a dense sonic forest. Leave a trail of crumbs behind though, so that you can retrace your steps.

Los Angeles Police Department share video for intimately haunting "Drugs"

Within the first minute of "Drugs," the latest single by Los Angeles Police Department, lead singer Ryan Pollie breaks the fourth wall by assuming his impending demise. "I won't be dead for long / I will get trapped in this song," Pollie asserts as he leisurely strums with an unhurried elegance. But "Drugs" has a darker undercurrent which belies its otherwise genial complexion, a trait that Pollie also abides by on its performance-based promo cut. 

Los Angeles Police Department are currently holding a residency at the Bootleg Theater throughout the month of November. The band's self-titled full-length came out earlier this year via Anti-Records.
