The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Poll for Indie Rock Winner: RFA

The Deli Philly's Yearly Readers'/Fans' Poll for Indie Rock just wrapped up. Thanks to all who casted their vote in support of their favorite emerging artists in our list of nominee.

Congrats are in order for the "four, bright strapping young men" of RFA for seriously rallying their fans to victory! The Philly quartet first caught our attention with its irresistible party anthem, "Freaking Out". And it looks like Dan Cousart, Alec Powell, Brendan McHale, and Christian Turzo have managed to keep their momentum moving along just fine on the back of their latest EP Something New From RFA. Join them in the AM this Saturday, February 4 at The Tip for the kickoff of RFA's Erin Express - Kegs n Eggs events. "Start your day off with some Rock n Roll and some cheap beer...oh and of course, omelettes."





Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE's Residency is in Full Effect

In conjunction with this weekend's Sabertooth Music Fest, Showdeer and Al's Den are hosting Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE as their residency for the next six days. Though it technically started last night, many special guests will be joining in on the dark psych folk fun, led by the beautiful swoon of Laura Hopkins.

Jetlag from their recent UK tour won't stop this trio from giving it all they've got for the rest of the week, with local favorites like Nathan Baumgartner of And And And, Dim Wit, Sweeping Exits, Cat Hoch, and Bryson Cone aiding in the excitement. 

See the flyer above for a breakdown of each night's LPDP pairings. Each night is free, 21+ and starts at 7pm so if you're gearing up to head out for the night, stop by Al's Den and see them tonight with Haley Heynderickx.





Best of NYC Garage/Slack Rock Acts: Baby Shakes and Stuyedeyed

Our Best of NYC 2017 poll has begun last week with the Garage/Slack Rock category and, after you-the-people cast your vote, we have the results to share with you!

Overall Poll winner (Jurors vote + Readers' vote): Baby Shakes

Readers' Poll Winner (Readers' Vote only): Stuyedeyed

We are superproud of these two NYC bands, that offer high octane garage rock inspired to completely different periods of the history of this genre. Stuyedeyed, with their insanely tense, obsessive tracks and screamed vocals, refer back to the proto-punk days of The Stooges, full of madness and debauchery - you can see them live at Alphaville on February 18th.

Baby Shakes, on the other hand, find inspiration in the melodic garage rock of NYC's own The Ramones, infusing ultra-fun surf and doo-wop elements in it. Baby Shakes will be playing W'Burg Hall of Music on February 14th and then embark on a Japan tour in March.  

Honorable mentions go to Navy Gangs (second in the overall chart) and Thick (third in the Reader's poll). The full list of nominees can be found under the streaming tracks.

 

 

 

 

 





New Dominic Album Available for Streaming

Dominic Angelella always seems to have something going on musically. He's currently playing bass for mewithoutYou, co-fronts the band Lithuania with his good bud Eric Slick (of Dr. Dog), and is all set to release a new solo album this week under the moniker Dominic. Goodnight, Doggies. premiered earlier today over at Brooklyn Vegan, and it will officially drop this Friday, February 3 via Lame-O Records. Dominic will also be hosting a dual record release celebration with Norwegian Arms that same evening at Johnny Brenda's.





New Track: "Congratulations" (Post Malone Cover) - Shelf Life

Shelf Life, a.k.a. Scott Leitch, recently put his own spin on Post Malone’s "Congratulations". Draped in a lo-fi aesthetic, the take dials things back a bit while retaining a residual sense of positivity. You can catch Shelf Life performing next in Philly at All Night Diner on Friday, February 10 with Microsoft Saint, Brittle Brian, and Chef Kiss.
