"Love Songs

Philly rock ‘n’ rollers Justin Pittney, Mike Cammarata, and Kyle Garvey (a.k.a. Residuels) revamp essential garage cuts on their latest release Love Songs. Available now via Suicide Bong Tapes, the three-piece’s cassette kick-starts with a full-throttle rendition of Rich Berry’s “Have Love, Will Travel.” The power trio’s frenetic take on the song that put bands like Thee Headcoatees and Paul Revere & the Raiders on the map is far from derivative. From the very first lick of guitar, Pittney and his bandmates tap into the original fury at the center of “Have Love Will Travel,” using crashing riffs and uninhibited vocals reminiscent of The Gories.
 
Residuels’ take on The Damned’s debut single “New Rose” is similarly inventive, giving listeners an unadulterated taste of the original song’s rhythm and fuzz. Pittney channels Dave Vanian with ease, mimicking the legendary Londoner’s punk-as-fuck diction as if he wrote the track himself. Clocking in at a few seconds shy of three minutes, the second track on Love Songs is arguably one of the best renditions of the ‘76 single.
 
The same could be said for “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” Opening with a guttural scream, the group’s tribute to psych-rock icons The 13th Floor Elevators is perfectly executed, with each chord and clash of cymbal adding to the instrumented intensity of the already well-loved garage classic. “You’re Gonna Miss Me” feels like a stubborn tantrum, the sonic manifestation of the sort of longing that is borne of desperation and pure desire that is mirrored in the album’s closer “It Girl.” Residuels’ jangly styling of one the most lovelorn (and heart-wrenching) tracks on The Brian Jonestown Massacre's fifth LP is equally captivating, despite being one of Love Song’s quietest tracks, leaving listeners smitten. For die-hard fans of garage rock and newcomers alike, Love Songs doesn’t just pay homage to the genre’s past; it celebrates its vibrant present. - Dianca London

Announcing The Deli Philly’s 5th Anniversary Bash on Oct. 5 at PhilaMOCA w/Night Panther, Literature & Much More!

Announcing The Deli Philly’s 5th Anniversary Bash on Oct. 5 at PhilaMOCA w/Night Panther, Literature & Much More!

Howdy!

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be celebrating The Deli Philly’s 5th Anniversary on Saturday, October 5 at PhilaMOCA. And headlining our soiree will be the sexy, polished sounds of Night Panther, whose self-titled debut LP is our September Album of the Month. Their live performance keeps getting better every time we see them. We’re expecting big things in the near future from these guys and gal! Also, if you haven’t checked them out yet, then we are happy to introduce you to Austin transplants Literature. They released one of the most impressive power-pop albums, Arab Spring, that we’ve come across in years, which is most likely why it is getting re-pressed on vinyl and released on CD in Japan via Waterslide Records. This will be your last chance to catch the group live before the band heads off to tour the UK. We also plan to announce more special guests so stay tuned!

OK, so I injured myself earlier this summer, and have spent way too much time the last couple of months in bed watching Netflix, catching up on TV series like Breaking Bad and Mad Men that are on channels my illegal cable doesn’t provide, which inspired me to want to do something special this year. And since having a meth rager didn’t sound all that glamorous for our anniversary and by request of some of my gal pals, I deciding to go with a theme party for the latter, adding a bit of sophistication and great looking outfits to the evening. So dig out your finest vintage attire, and join us for martinis and plenty of hard stuff on the rocks or neat at our rad free cocktail hour before the music showcase. We’ll be giving away neat prizes, like R5 show passes and your own personal bottle of Jameson (like mine ;o), for the best time-warping outfits. You’ll also get the first glimpse of PhilaMOCA’s month-long “Halloween Horrors” art show because Halloween should be everyday. Mark it on your calendars, punch it in your iPhones, or do whatever you need to do to remember to get weird with us! 

Much love,
Q.D. Tran & The Deli Staff
