Daytrotter Session w/Sun Airway!

Daytrotter just released Sun Airway’s session today from when they visited in October, and as one of the comments stated about the new posting, “This is the opposite of suck.” We concur. You can take a listen for yourself here, and download it for free if you like it (just signup for a Daytrotter account if you don’t have one already and make your way through their sweet archives). The four songs that were posted are “Infinity”, “Oh, Naoko”, “Your Moon”, and “Put the Days Away”. Enjoy! (Illustration by Johnnie Cluney) - The Deli Staff

Interview w/The Deli’s Philly Record Label of the Year: Ian Records

After interviewing Ian Galloway, owner of Ian Records, you can’t help but realize how passionate the guy is about music and the vinyl format. In a world where vinyl sales are on the rise but album sales keep hitting record lows, the hardcore/punk kid inside him continues to fight a valiant fight while still finding beauty in the process of creating and releasing a new album. That is why it is an honor for us to be able to award Ian Records the honor of being The Deli’s Philly Record Label of the Year 2010. The fledgling local label is dedicated to releasing only Philly artists on vinyl, and we look forward to hearing more from Ian Records for years to come. Please check out our interview here with Ian Galloway, and hopefully you’ll discover that you feel the same way too. Great local bands that rock get in contact with him.
