Toronto's FRIGS on the cover of Austin 2018 issue of The Deli

Deliriously rocking beings,

Once a year, The Deli publishes an issue of The Deli that is NOT exclusively focused on NYC acts, but on artists based in all the 11 scenes we cover. That time of the year is now, an that issue is the 8th Austin issue of The Deli, which you can now read online here. The print version of it, in its glorious 7 inch format, will be available in print next week in Austin and in NYC shortly thereafter.

On the mag's cover you'll find Toronto's noise rockers FRIGS, whose debut album Basic Behaviour has been rocking our world in the last few weeks.

The issue features other incredible emerging artists, including hip hop genius Nnamdi Ogbonnya, talented goofball popper Caroline Rose, and Los Angeles' alt-rockers The Beaches among others - you can listen to all of them in the YouTube playlist below.

Also in the issue, an article entitled "Will Rock Explode Again?" which poses pognant questions about the future of rock'n'roll.

As usual, in the final pages you'll find a section focused on the guitar pedals and synths involved in our Austin Stompbox and Synth Expo, scheduled for March 16/17 at the Chuggin' Monkey in Downtown Austin!

Local Trio, Lume has released a video for the first single, “Keep Me Under”, from their forthcoming debut LP, Wrung Out. This record will be released on April 20th via Equal Vision Records.

Lume is the work of Dan Butler and brothers Dylan and Austin Hulett. When asked, Butler had this to say about the lyrics of “Keep me Under”. “Lyrically, the song centers around the idea that being a pessimist does nothing but decrease your quality of life, yet sometimes we hold onto these negative feelings and outlooks because they feel good in the moment".

Lume is heading down to SXSW soon, but you can catch them at Burlington Bar on May 5th.


Deanna Devore "A Cause"

Melkbelly talk about gear and inspiration on Delicious Audio

The music of Chicago’s noise-rock band Melkbelly incorporates elements of industrial sludge, shoegaze and math-rock to create a burst of deftly controlled chaos. Their 2017 LP “Nothing Valley” features delicious references to the unforgettable Bostonian bands signed by 4AD in the late 80’s/early ‘90s (read Pixies, Throwing Muses, and The Breeders). Our sister blog Delicious Audio asked them a few questions about their creative process and pedals in this interview

Streaming below, their video for "Kid Creative," from 2017's LP "Nothing Valley."
