A Deli Premiere: Wax Statues' psychedelic single "Stranger"

Bay Area natives Wax Statues make music for sitting back, hanging out and not thinking too hard about it — that is, until you take about one second to listen to the lyrics. Their newest single “Stranger” off the forthcoming debut LP Exclusive / Reclusive begins with the eerie line “There’s something inside / crawling through our space.” The integration of psychedelic twinges into a jangle-rock foundation create a compelling, yet easy-listening experience — reminiscent of a West Coast reincarnation of Dr. Dog. - Lilly Milman

Listen to an exclusive premiere of “Stranger” below.





New GrandeMarshall EP Available for Streaming

Philly emcee GrandeMarshall recently added a new EP to the equation. Self-produced (excluding tracks “One Step Away” and “Buyer’s Remorse,” which were co-produced with Scanz), In Good Spirit maintains a lyric forward introspection. The beats roll with a smooth simplicity, affording concise flows room to run. It’s laidback, exuding a cool confidence. Feel free to give it a spin below. (Photo by Cones)





New Track: "Retirement Meat" - Heavy Medical

Distortion and percussion merge, cracking open “Retirement Meat,” a new song from Heavy Medical. That anxious aggression sends shards of sonics at you from abrupt angles. Rumbling through in a jarring, heavy gut-punch, the track shakes the foundation. It's a heart-pounding jolt that asks for time alone. "Retirement Meat" appears to be off the band's upcoming album, which is titled Problems.





A Deli Premiere: LittleBoyBigHeadonBike's 100th Release 'Big Blue Butterflies'

LittleBoyBigHeadonBike, otherwise known as Will Orchard, may just be New England DIY’s most prolific songwriter. The Rhode Island native has roughly 500 songs available online, spread between 99 EPs and LPs. That would make his new album Big Blue Butterflies number 100. Very few artists boast such a wide discography, and even fewer can be proud of all their releases. But that's what makes this album exceptional. Rich with his usual whimsy — most apparent in the arrangments, which make full use of synths and the harmonica — and embedded with simple and vulnerable lyricism that could give early Death Cab a run for its money, this album shows the portrait of an artist in the midst of maturation. In this release, Orchard is exposed, but he is also careful — these are no random thoughts or loose strings. Once again, through the project LittleBoyBigHeadonBike, Will Orchard has proven that even when things fall apart, a few poignant lyrics may be enough to make the center hold. LittleBoyBigHeadonBike is kicking off a tour with an album release party at Columbus Theatre in Providence on June 28 at 7 p.m. - Lilly Milman, photo by Nicholas Lussier
