Daddy Issues Releases Single Ahead of New Album "Deep Dream"

Daddy Issues is back with a bang, releasing a fiery single, “In Your Head,” from their upcoming album, Deep Dream. The tune chronicles the mess of emotion left behind after a breakup, marrying rage and melancholy in a way that brings 90s alt rock and grunge classics like Bikini Kill or Nirvana to mind. Sonically, this is the heaviest work the trio has ever made. The guitar tone is full bodied, with enough fuzz to make the highs crackle while the bass thunderously fills in the low end. The production is high quality, moving in the opposite direction of their previously lo-fi/diy style and bringing new clarity to the fuzzy, grunge revival they execute so well.  This is, without a doubt, the Nashville alt rock band to watch in 2017.

Best New England Emerging Artists 2017: The Deli's Poll Results

Dear Deli Readers,

We have finally reached the end of the road for The Deli’s Best Emerging New England Artists Poll. As usual, it’s been a lengthy, exhausting, painstaking journey through an abundance of numbers, band names, and some seriously rad tunes. Now, before we get to our list of this year’s Top Performers, we would like to thank our wonderful, knowledgeable jury of local music experts/enthusiasts (which you can view below), dedicated Deli writers and all those who took the time to check out our nominees and cast their votes. You’re the best, and we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!

1. Crumb is an outfit that takes the pleasantly dissonant atmosphere of smooth jazz and molds it into psych rock masterpieces. Their songs glide along steady pace, revealing highly skilled instrumentation without abandoning the groove. There are long stretches of jam that prove remiscent of classic indie rockers like Lotus Plaza, but there are moments of unbridled wierdness and pure chaos, sprinkled in to add some spice to the psychedelic sonic brew. Crumb is the new must listen for psych fans in New England.

---

2. XR Tabs is a band to which it's nearly impossible to assign a definitive genre. Their work contains elements of experimental noise rock, post-punk, indie rock, and electronica. They traverse unclaimed musical territory almost as a rule, making listening a wholly unexpected experience.

---

3. Pompo is an alt rock band that blends elements of funk and blues to create a hybrid, modern alternative rock sound. With lengthy, funk jams that serve as an instant reminder of early Red Hot Chili Peppers, they've honed a classic sound and made it their own.

The Seshen Releases New Music Video - Colors Collide

The Seshen has released a stunning new music video entitled, Colors Collide. We're always excited to hear new music from them!!

San Francisco Bay Area-based six-piece The Seshen release the second single, Colors Collide, from their recent album ‘Flames & Figures’ on 10th March via Tru Thoughts. Just in time for their ‘Flames & Figures’ Europe Tour (please see overleaf for dates), The Seshen’s new single relays the intrapersonal journey of “Colors Collide”, and a reimagined remix from LA duo Starkiller (the production outfit of C.E. Garcia & Alfredo E. Fratti, members of Adrian Younge’s Venice Dawn).





New The Spirit of the Beehive LP Available for Streaming

The Spirit of the Beehive just premiered its long-awaited LP Pleasure Suck, which officially comes on March 24 via Tiny Engines, but you can stream it now over at Stereogum. The album shifts unpredictably from warm melodies to wafting, textured soundscapes that morph into chaotic, dense walls of noise, and back again without notice, as a dreary, dark cloud hangs over the disenchanted, dual guy-gal lead vocals. It's a mind-warping collection of tracks that yearn for you to dig deeper. The band is currently on an extensive U.S. tour that will wrap up with a hometown release show on Friday, March 28 at Everybody Hits.





New Music Video: "Lost Moon" - Nightlands

Lulling us into a dream-like state, Nightlands, a.k.a. Dave Hartley (of The War on Drugs), takes us down the rabbit hole of his fascination with "Simpsonwave" YouTube videos, which match scenes from The Simpsons with vaporwave tracks. He recruited the genre's originator, Lucien Hughes, to help him with the visuals for his new music video for "Lost Moon," premiering recently over at Interview Magazine. It's the lead single from his forthcoming LP I Can Feel The Night Around Me, which is slated for release on May 5 via Western Vinyl. Hartley also has plans to hit the road in support of his forthcoming album, and will be taking the stage at Johnny Brenda's on Saturday, May 27, with tourmates The Building.
