New False Tracks Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quartet of False Tracks recently released a new album, Either World, which was recorded by Uniform Recording's Jeff Ziegler. A spacious, new-wave jangle melds with persistent backend and bass-thumping rhythms, creating an urgent, adventurous dynamic. The ability to push the pace, exuding a timely grit while remaining instrumentally locked-in, produces a memorable collection of tracks. The band also has a new video to accompany album opener "Psyops". ("Fans of the Amazing Kreskin, Smell-o-vision, and Horrors of the Black Museum, indulge yourselves.")





A Deli Premiere: "Things That Are Broken" by Elodie

A journey that began at the age of 4 hits a milestone today for Boston’s indie-folk songstress Elodie: the eloquent songwriter’s debut EP Things That Are Broken is out now. From the start of the record, Elodie’s emotions are gracefully and honestly exposed via the retrospective lyrics that are sung with hard-charging passion in the choruses of “City Paved With Stone.” The rapid rhythm of the song’s climax sets the canvas for Elodie’s fierce melodic collage. “Face in the Mirror” treats the listener to beautiful string-instrument swells and warm piano notes that create the perfect atmosphere for Elodie’s vivid storytelling. “Motion Sickness” is a punchy track filled with melancholic sincerity that is led by Elodie’s intricate acoustic guitar work. “Something More” is Elodie’s vocal point of excellence, while the record’s closing track “(May You) Find Your Way” is a cheery folk send-off that wraps everything up beautifully. The singer-songwriter’s travels from her native New York to Boston and beyond have helped shape a journey that is ever-present in each of the tracks she has chosen to share. Those that have supported her, a those like us, who are fortunate to listen, cheer for a rising New England artist. Catch Elodie playing at the Lilypad Inman in Cambridge on October 4th. We are thrilled to premiere Things That Are Broken for you below. - Rene Cobar





New Track: "Problem With The World" - The Retinas

Garage-rock power trio The Retinas has a new full-length self-titled album coming out on October 25 via Medical Records. The LP's lead single, "Problem With The World," is an oldie but a goodie from the bands catalogue, with new arrangements and lyrics. It's an anthem for the misunderstood. You're not alone. Enjoy!





Tomacco - Funky Garage Rock "Vagabond" EP

Named after one of the greatest Simpson’s episodes of all time; Tomacco is a funky 4 piece garage band from Toronto. Their latest single “Mister Twister” shows off all their goods. The rhythm keeps the funk goin’ while the keys add a psychedelic tone to the track. It has an early 90’s vibe that makes me think Tomacco would fit in on the same bill as Blood Sugar Sex Magik era Chili Peppers and Ugly Kid Joe perhaps. Their EP “Vagabond” is available now. They will be playing The Atria in Oshawa on September 20th alongside Revive the Rose, The Hostiles, The Jailbirds and No Service. – Kris Gies

Cosmic Analog Blue unleashes a sonic tornado in new single "Through the Underpass"

Cosmic Analog Blue is a group that cannot hide its exotic nature: the group’s charming-bizarre blend of country, rock, orchestral, and Americana is served real thick and chill. The band’s latest single “Through the Underpass” begins with relaxed acoustic guitar strums and twangy vocals that pave the way for grand string instrument swells and eruptive drums; all instruments rise in volume to create a sonic tornado you find yourself chasing. The breakdowns are exquisite and are telling of the Boston group's penchant for creativity and free-flow combined with the precise organization to make it all work. The funky group released a self-titled EP back in 2018, and if this new single is any indication, the group is heating up again. We are streaming “Through the Underpass” for you below. - Rene Cobar
