Reptaliens Are Your Favorite Indie Pop Band of 2016!

Reptaliens really do rule the Earth.

Some of us probably DO feel like the lizard elite run everything, or at the very least, the Cheeto elite do. After the way the last few weeks have gone that seems more like an actual fact than an alternative one. But when it comes to who has taken hold of our local music scene, there are a few names we just can't get out of our heads. One of them is Reptaliens.

Led by the lovely union of Cole and Bambi Browning (Sculpture Gardens, Wampire, Brainstorm), Reptaliens has included members from other talented acts like Fog Father, Cat Hoch Band and Lola Buzzkill over their course of their band-dom, but a constant enjoyment can always be found in their songs. A twee-like innocence presents itself amid the lo-fi instrumentation and angelically comforting vocals from Bambi, allowing their songs to easily sway from flirty bedroom pop songs to surrealistic dream daze productions.

As of right now, Reptaliens are scheduled to play their next show March 3rd with Skull Diver and King Black Acid at Mississippi Studios. Until then, congratulate Reptaliens for being your favorite Indie Pop act of 2016!





The Deli sponsors LPR's On The Rise night with Lip Talk, Dinowalrus and Raia Was

On February 1st, The Deli will be start sponsoring Le Poisson Rouge's "On The Rise" series, which is focused on outstanding local, emerging artists. We'll be curious to see live again two artists we booked a few years ago and that have had the patience to hone their skill and grow throughout the years (rare thing in the band business): we are referring to hybrid, avant-indie quartet Lip Talk, and psych rock turned psych pop band Dinowalrus. Noteworthy singer songwriter Raia Was will round out a night of great music made in NYC.

Check out each artist's latest single below, and buy tickets here - there will be free magazines for all!





New Track: "Fired In The Morning" - The Bad Larrys

The quintet of The Bad Larrys breach the subject of rippin' and rockin' into the wee hours with their single, "Fired In The Morning". Set off by a relentless bassline, the song serves as a joyous garage/punk ode that boozily resonates. While lyrically depicting the necessity to reel in/calm down from a rollicking night, its energy may trigger the converse - a desire to escape the monotony of the daily grind and get down. You'll be able to find "Fired In The Morning" on the band's upcoming debut EP, Exposing Racket, recorded at Valley Ride Co. and is due out this spring.





Debut Street Stains Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Washington Post music critic and former Q and Not U multi-instrumentalist, Chris Richards, started laying down material in the summer of 2008 with Pissed Jeans drummer Sean McGuiness (while watching the Olympics). The recordings remained dormant for nearly half a decade until the duo recruited Aaron Leitko (A Day In Black And White, Protect-U) and his Tascam-388 to help fill out its sound, before also capturing Richards's vocals. The songs were once again forgotten about, until the group came together in the spring of 2015 to mix down the numerous tracks in hand. You can now listen to their self-released, self-titled fourteen-song album, available under the moniker of Street Stains. We are really happy that these recordings are finally seeing the light of day!





New Blood Sound Double LP Available for Streaming & Download

Prolific darkwavers Blood Sound have provided us with plethora of shimmering, new tunes to dance alone to in our bedrooms during these bleak days under a Trump administration. Or maybe you just might want to blast them loud and proud at the "Queer Rager" dance party happening outside the Loews hotel in Center City Philly this evening (from 7:30-9:30) to protest the proposed repeal of the Affordable Care Act and the unwanted visit from Donny "Small Hands" and his spineless Republican congressional delegation to our City of Brotherly Love. True Romance Magazine is a double LP with its first half composed mostly of synths and the second focused on compositions that are predominately made up of guitar and bass. You can take both for a spin below, and don't miss Blood Sound opening for Black Marble on Monday, February 6 at Johnny Brenda's.
