PREMIERE: June Pageant's dreamy debut "Wundergurl" is anything but sleepy

A healthy dose of synth and dream pop inform “Wundergurl,” the debut single by Jersey City indie trio June Pageant, a fitting introduction to their relaxed, lounge-friendly bops. Written by members Lauren Rosato and Oscar Suh-Rodriguez (the latter formerly of no-holds barred punk project NoPop), the track quickly hits its stride, transitioning from sparse keys and percussion to a brighter, fuller sound as bright, overdriven guitar riffing emerges in the tracks second-half. This instrumental interplay between colder and warmer elements underlines Rosato’s vocal calming vocal performance, which serves as the track’s centerpiece and keeps things delightfully cool, but never sleepy. Recommended for fans of RHYE and Parcels, we’re excited to hear what else June Pageant has to offer in the (hopefully) near future — until them, stream out premiere of “Wundergurl” below.

PREMIERE: Modern Diet release latest single “Post Grad”

The lyricially insightful, thinking-persons rock of Brooklyn's Modern Diet returns with their latest single “Post Grad” premiering here on the Deli in time for Valentine's Day. However, the sentiment expressed here focuses on an existential crisis of being, rather than traditional romantic notions. Chiming open note guitar chords, soulful keyboards, bright tambourine percussion and a progression defining bassline immediately establish wistful sentimentality for the lyrics that follow. “Sticking to the script I used to know. Making plans and standing up to go. All my old tricks slip into places as we carry on. It's a three piece suit made of stone and it weighs a ton. Take it off for me won't you?” These vocals are delivered with clarity touched by just the right amount of contemporary studio enhancements. Open spaces are provided in the mix for click-clack percussion and celestial rising ambiance. While the title implies what is learned after basic formal schooling, the emphasis focuses on it's struggle. “Meanwhile I keep getting older. Go uphill, pushing my boulder – to fall down, back to the bottom and up once more,” is how the defining chorus goes. The track is available now and can be had (along with their other work) via the band's linktree here. - Dave Cromwell





The Bobby Lees burn it down on "BEAUTY PAGEANT," play Our Wicked Lady 2.21

Coming off their raucous first round win at Our Wicked Lady’s Winter Madness, it’s as good a time as ever to revisit Woodstock by-way-of NYC garage band the Bobby Lees and their energetic sound. 2018’s BEAUTY PAGEANT (rerecorded last year with new tracks in a REDUX format) rips and thrills, due in no small part to Sam Quartin’s frothy vocal delivery, an unhinged, at times drawling performance that well-complements the outfit’s grungy, melodic guitar rock. Listening to PAGEANT is a breathless experience with few downtempo pauses, the majority of its tracks a breakneck, white hot fury; rendered live, it’s an absolute barnburner. Give it a listen below ahead of their Winter Madness quarterfinals performance next weekend.
