Announcing The Deli Philly's 10th Anniversary Bash!

Dear Deli Readers,

This is a big one! We are very excited to announce the lineup for The Deli Philly’s 10th Anniversary Bash on Saturday, October 6th at PhilaMOCA. Yup – that’s right; for nearly a decade now, our branch of The Deli has been proudly exposing you to the wonderful, homegrown talent that has fostered this kick-ass music community of ours. It’s been an honor and a privilege to document this slice of musical history and share it with you, and we hope to continue on this journey with you for many years to come.

Headlining this momentous occasion will be glam quartet Sixteen Jackies, who also recently released our June Record of the Month. If you’ve never experienced them live, you are certainly in for a treat, and if you have, then we’ll see you there. They’ll also be joined by the anthemic songwriting of American Trappist, the brainchild of former River City Extension frontman Joe Michelini. And feel free to submit yourself to the ladies of Madalean Gauze, who will be bringing their naughty brand of post-punk/psych-rock hijinx to the mausoleum’s hallowed halls. Yeah – it’s on. Looking forward to sharing this very special evening with you! More deets about the celebration HERE.

Much love,

Q.D. Tran & The Deli Staff





New American Trappist LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

American Trappist's new LP, Tentanda Via, comes across as both an exploration of existential inventory and a multifaceted musical endeavor. Balancing the stressors of uncertainty while coming to grips with beliefs or lack thereof is something that can shake one’s foundation. The weight of importance in those decisions/realizations are heavy barriers to break through. Former River City Extension frontman Joe Michelini continues to impress as a skilled songwriter on his sophomore full-length album.





New Weathervane Music Benefit Compilation Available for Streaming & Purchase

An assemblage of local artists unites on a new compilation benefitting FONE (Friends of Neighborhood Education). All the songs featured on Equal Loudness Vol​.​1 - Music to Benefit Philadelphia Public Schools were recorded at Miner Street Recordings, and released in collaboration with Weathervane Music. American Trappist, CayetanaSquare Peg Round Hole, Julia Rainer, and Bitter Bitter Weeks are among the cavalcade of contributors whom hope to raise awareness and funds for schools. This is an excellent example of musicianship paying it forward/back to the future by providing much-needed aid to education.





The Deli Philly’s November Record of the Month: Amuse-oreille, Vol. 1 - American Trappist

Former River City Extension frontman Joe Michelini’s latest slew of songs is a vibrant tribute to Americana-infused indie rock, romance, and self-determination.

Opening with the effervescent sound of “Soot,” Amuse-oreille, Vol. 1 seduces its listener via visceral guitar licks, yearning, melodic vocals, and straight-forward lyricism. As Michelini and Hemming’s Candice Martello croon, “Things get rough when you don’t know who you are”; American Trappist’s audience is reminded just how vital honesty is, not only with others, but with yourself as well. “Soot” is an homage to self-discovery and the trials and triumphs that go hand in hand with embracing your inner truth. Like early aughts Drug Rug meets The Babies’ Our House on the Hill, the sonic energy of it smolders, with each line reaffirming the track’s pathos with urgency.

“Fear Nothing” gradually swells to a lush and rhythmic ode to the joy that can be found in uncertainty on the brink of new beginnings. Adequately titled, the EP’s second offering is an uplifting, yet practical anthem that urges listeners to seize the day. Giving way to the bouncing keys of “Heaven,” Michelini builds the tale gradually, before it tears away at the seams with distorted riffs and reverb that eventually disintegrate into “Fireworks.” Channeling his inner Springsteen and Walt Whitman, the artist shares what feels like a love song, penned specifically for our beloved Philadelphia. Vibrant, catchy, and the perfect balance between innovation and nostalgia, “Fireworks” is a realist’s portrait of the contradictions, complexities, and brash beauty of the American Dream.

American Trappist’s songs are sincere, subtly sentimental (in a good way), and absolutely memorable. Amuse-oreille, Vol. 1 will fill your heart with warmth and light as fall gives way to winter. – Dianca London
