New Track: "Rescind" - Yarrow

A Mild Circus, the debut EP from the trio of Yarrow (which features member of Great Weights an King Azaz), is slated for release on February 15 via Get Better Records. Its lead single, “Rescind,” opens by initiating a sense of a noise-accented tension. Pointing out the misplaced malice of those dispersing negative actions and attitudes, it notes the clear discrepancy in ideological goals and perspectives between the aggressors and their victims. You can find Yarrow this Thursday, January 17 at Hubris House, as part of a lineup that also includes Absinthe Father and Fox Hollow.





Weekend Warrior, January 11 - 13

Seagulls first capture our attention with the graceful melodies and textured soundscapes found on the group’s debut Great Pines, The Deli Philly’s September Record of the Month 2014. The LP was later picked up by Yellow K Records and re-issued. Today, it’s long-awaited follow-up is out now via Evergreen Prefecture/Honest Face Records (and is available on a thumb drive, packaged like Sega Genesis cartridge). “Thrown Voice​ is an album about communication - interpersonally, with the environment, within one’s self - and the way that technology can facilitate or get in the way of those interactions. It’s a follow-up about the importance of following up.” Once again, Matt Whittle and friends demonstrate their musical talents, masterfully crafting a timeless sound for the modern age. Feel free to come and experience plenty of feels tomorrow night at PhilaMOCA, where Seagulls will be holding their album release show, supported by friends Spirit Haus, Queue, and URBVN. – H.M. Kauffman

Debut Buddie EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Buddie, the fuzzed-out Philly powerpop project of Dan Forest, just dropped its debut EP Change of Scenery. The origins of the songs began while Forest was employed as a conservation biologist in Bioko (a small island in Equatorial Guinea, Central Africa), and have been fleshed out in the Grays Ferry studio of Keith Abrams (Pine Barons, Tremellow), who is responsible for mixing the album. The cassette is now available via Super Wimpy Punch, and the band will be rockin' the label's South Philly headquarters tomorrow evening to celebrate its arrival. They'll also be joined by Qwark, Swim Camp, and Vermont's Yellowfront.





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Breaklite

Breaklite have branded themselves “the stoner punks (from hell) we all know and love,” and that just might be the case after you take their debut EP Bloodshot for a spin. It gave us the feels, and we’re down to see/hear where this party bus is going. We recently caught up with frontman Johnny Germ for our Featured Artist(s) Q&A. Check it out HERE, and join the cult!





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Breaklite

Breaklite have branded themselves “the stoner punks (from hell) we all know and love,” and that just might be the case after you take their debut EP Bloodshot for a spin. It gave us the feels, and we’re down to see/hear where this party bus is going. We recently caught up with frontman Johnny Germ for our Featured Artist(s) Q&A. Check it out below, and join the cult!

The Deli: How did you start making music?

Johnny Germ: Well, I have been playing in bands since I was in high school in 2005, and my brother Casey Germ and Steve Hagan have been in and out of bands with each other since about 2007/2008. After those bands dissolved, I played acoustic for a while, and was longing to get back into the whole band thing so in 2014/2015 we decided to get together and write some songs.

TD: Where did the name Breaklite come from?

JG: Well, my brother was driving down the highways thinking of band names, and he saw a sea of brake lights a head of him and thought “what a sick name” so we decided to mess with the spelling and viola! We are now the stoner punks we all know and love, Breaklite.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences?

JG: Our influences range so much from bands like Iggy and the Stooges, Johnny Cash, T. Rex, Led Zeppelin, Jay Reatard, Nirvana, The Replacements, Fidlar, Black Flag, Oasis…. The list goes on, but if you listen closely, you can hear a little bit of everything.

TD: What artists (local, national and/or international) are you currently listening to?

JG: Currently, we are all huge fans of the UK band Shame. We’re also really into Full Bush, Grace Vonderkuhn, The Valets, Thin Lips, and (our homies) The Warhawks.

TD: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

JG: I can’t speak for the rest of the band but my first concert was Warped Tour 2005, and the first album I ever bought was Blink 182’s Dude Ranch in 6th grade. Still one of my favorites to this day.

TD: What do you love about Philly?

JG: Well, there’s the kick-ass music scene and venues like Kung Fu Necktie, Boot & Saddle, Johnny Brenda’s, Connie’s Ric Rac, and The Barbary. Also, cheesesteaks though… we all love cheesesteaks... and the Eagles. GO BIRDS!

TD: What do you hate about Philly?

JG: I don’t wanna sound corny, but there isn’t much to hate…

TD: What are your plans for 2019?

JG: 2019 brings a lot our way. Whether it’s the launch of our “indie label” Club Germ Records, working on our follow-up full-length to the Bloodshot EP, or my personal favorite - our upcoming tour to SXSW.

TD: What was your most memorable live show?

JG: Probably the last one we played at the Barbary. The crowd was great, and we played our hearts out with two bands we have so much love for being Full Bush and Grace Vonderkuhn.

TD: What's your favorite thing to get at the deli?

JG: Is this a food question? If so, I’m saying an Italian hoagie with hot peppers…hahaha.
