Rodes Rollins plays up her spaghetti western influences on "Mystery Man"

There aren't too many country singers that wax-poetic about the larger than life figures of our world. It seems like the cultural focus of the genre has shifted toward different stories with different motifs. Yet artists like Rodes Rollins are trying to change that with songs like "Mystery Man." Appearing like a country-pop mirage on the horizon, Rollins' vocals are watery and obscure, detailing a man in a "forsaken land" that cannot be shot dead. The track is less about a character's arc and more about this legendary figure's reputation, and it plays out over haunting instrumentals that border on psychedelic with twangy guitars that become surprisingly soothing. With its soft sonic palette, "Mystery Man" could fool listeners into thinking it's a lullaby, but there's a sense of unease and tension in the air, like a standoff between two gunslingers is imminent. - Tucker Pennington





Debut Juice EP Available for Streaming & Download

The post-punk quartet of Juice (which features members of Ursula, Dark Web, and Louie Louie), are freshly releasing its debut EP, 100%, via Get Better Records. With vocals beamed in a calm, clairvoyant manner, juxtaposing the immediate grit of the instrumental backdrop, there’s a welcomed unpolished, combative push that takes on a psych edge. It’s both jarring and catchy, fuzzy and fun. So allow your freak flag to fly freely!





B.R.U.C.E's Halloween Special

Halloweekend is finally upon us, and it’s important you start your wicked weekend off on the right foot. Luckily the Deli is around to hook you up with the creepiest content around. Awhile back B.R.U.C.E. played a show at the Peculiarium Oddities Shop. They’ve released a video just in time for all the monsters and creeps looking for something freaky to entertain themselves with! Filmed by Nathan Backous, it shows the band in all their grungey glory. 

True to form, each member completely throws themselves into the music. It’s impressive that B.R.U.C.E. can become the most entertaining spectacle in the midst of a shop literally dedicated to freaky things that are fun to look at. As they thrash around with their instruments and howl in agony, the intensity of the music is almost overwhelming. The rumbling, synthesized vocals are even more sinister than the voice of the ghoul sitting on your chest when you get hit with sleep paralysis. It’s viscerally disturbing, which makes it incredibly delightful.

Make sure you watch the video below. Bruce will be playing next at The Firkin Tavern November 4th, along with Adult School and Dead Coyote

Pronoun unveils new track, plays Bowery on November 6th

Alyse Vellturo has been releasing a steady stream of singles from her solo project, pronoun, this year. We’ve already heard “run” and “wrong,” in the lead up to pronoun’s debut album--which is due out later this year via Rhyme & Reason. Today we’re getting a new track called “you didn’t even make the bed.” Despite its dreamy quality, “you didn’t even make the bed” is written out of spite, and specifically, out of an all-too-familiar bitterness towards an ex. 

Vellturo details, “I wrote this when I got home after an ex had just moved out and left it kind of a mess, when I just wanted to scream at the sky, when it was the final straw. It transitions from the sad, defeated phase of a break up in to the angry one. This whole record addresses that phase, the one where you're like "really...REALLY?!" 

The upcoming album is shaping up to be something spectacular, and you can catch pronoun this November when she hits the road with Justin Courtney Pierre (of Motion City Soundtrack) on tour. Listen to “you didn’t even make the bed” below, and see pronoun live at Bowery Ballroom on November 6th. 





New Track: "Mathed Up" - Soul Glo

An unrelenting, raw intensity streams from Soul Glo. Their latest single, “Mathed Up,” allows the flow of frustration over societal oppression to come to a lyrical head. Exploring the fervor of inequality in a densely-packed, musical window, the vocals hover between an unfiltered, furious scream and a crisper, hip-hop delivery; that combination creates a balanced, resounding impact. Soul Glo will be performing this evening at Everybody Hits, as part of the Mass Liberation Campaign Benefit, which also features Sammus, Pinkwash, and Likes. (Photo by Luke Mouradian)
