Gam debuts butter-smooth record "Moments and Spirals"

Boston’s Gam is a silky smooth group with a short and sweet EP we recommend highly. Moments and Spirals opens up with “Every Second Levitates,” a funky track that unravels elegantly: the guitars range from crisp-clean to wah-tinged and swirl around warm vocals, and snappy beats. “Wait a Little” leans on its slow rhythm and oozes jazziness steady while “Sunkissed Lovers” has a serene ambiance and an R&B groove perfect for a sweet wind-down. The band is just taking flight, but already its path looks promising, and its musical colors splendid. Stream “Every Second Levitates” below to join the journey. - Rene Cobar





A Deli Premiere: "Midnight Escapade" by Jake Sherman

Boston’s Jake Sherman turns a mundane evening into a fireworks-filled carnival in the music video for his latest single “Midnight Escapade.” Even if only possibly in his mind, the elation of a late-night cuddle call brews throughout to the sound of his creamy R&B music. From hot harmonies to laid-back rhythms, the song is a romantic throwback to the heyday of America’s R&B vocal groups, and just in time for Valentine’s Day. Jake is in the middle of an East Coast tour titled after the track and will be performing for the first time in many of the cities listed here. Jake is revving up the feels in this latest music video, and we are thrilled to premiere it here for you below. Happy Valentine’s Day, New England! - Rene Cobar, photo by Luc Kordas





Silverware releases video for “Finish Line”

San Francisco-based Silverware is led by Ainsley Wagoner, a native Kentuckian whose roots infiltrate her songs. Her sound is inspired by Appalachian sparseness and is layered with electric guitars, synths, and ethereal vocals. Her new video for “Finish Line” came out last month and we’re glad to share the dancing joy. -Lucille Faulkner

A Deli Premiere: "Align" by Mike Morrissey

Somerville’s Mike Morrissey is back at it with a breezy single that will kick off your weekend, and year, splendidly. Truthfully, here at the deli, we must confess we are big fans of what Morrissey brings to the deep pool of talent that resides in the city northwest of Boston he calls home: the artist has a quiet confidence about him that shines through his alternating indie-rock/indie-folk/Americana styles. In the Grant Bloom co-produced “Align,” Mike is playing with the latter style as he allows the song to brew, giving time to each acoustic guitar strum, each water-drop synth embellishment, each subterranean-like bass bump; Mike’s unaltered and tranquil vocals complete the portrait worth admiring. “Align” is a snapshot of a moment in time, brief in conception perhaps but lasting in memory; the song is a fragment to hold on to, and its tune rings clear to all who have ever stopped to remember a good time, a good person. You can catch Mike performing inside the Canopy Room of Bow Market on January 26th or visit the Aeronaut Brewing Company, where he hosts a monthly open mic, on February 5th. The track was mastered by Luke Sullivan and the bright artwork is by Belinda Riggs. We are delighted to premiere Mike’s single here for you; that alto saxophone by Callum Mackenzie at the start of the song is buttery smooth. - Rene Cobar





A Deli Premiere: "Underwater" by Faxi Moto

With each introductory chord, ardent and lingering, Boston-based group Faxi Moto unearths its riveting debut single “Underwater,” a sophisticated-nostalgic song comprised of the purest elements of indie-rock; a piece that transports wholly takes shape from profound emotion and submerges listeners with fierce intent. The elegant vocals of singer/bassist Anne Marie Green move ever so gently past crystal-clear guitar riffs, the vibrato, rich as it is, colors delightfully. Like water glistening stones downstream, the music eventually picks up its pace until reaching its sonic lake of dreamy harmonies, snappy drum patterns, and frothy basslines. The collective of Green, Kyle Maldjian (vocals, guitar), Max Williams (guitar), Enric Adillon (synth), and Alejandro Hervella (drums), is primed for success: five young minds from Boston’s collegiate scene crafting their live shows, writing thoughtful lyrics and energetic tunes, fearlessly embracing their skills—what more do you want? We are calling it: this is a must-see band for 2020, and you can catch it at Midway Cafe on February 3rd. Here at the deli New England, we are fans and proud to debut this beautiful single for all. - Rene Cobar
