Read The Deli's SXSW 2016 "PsycheDELIa" issue online! Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar on the cover

Check out the SXSW 2016 issue of The Deli Mag, now available online, and distributed in print next week in Austin during SXSW's Music Week. You'll find copies of it also at our SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space!

Yes, we've done things a little differently this time: we shaped this rag the size of a 7" record, and created a "concept" issue almost entirely dedicated to Psychedelia, with a feature by our editor Brian Chidester about how this musical genre has become more and more influential in the new millennium. The two cover artists, Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar, serve as the two extremes within which Psychedelia has expanded in recent years.

As usual, the issue also gathers:

- A lot of emerging artists (mostly psych this time),
- The winners of The Deli's regional Year End Polls for Emerging Artists,
- The winners of The Deli's Best of 2015 Readers' Polls,
- A section dedicated to the SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space

We hope you enjoy the read and get to know some awesome new music.

Q&A with Yonatan Gat: live at Webster Hall's Studio on 03.11 + at SXSW next week

NYC-by-way-of-Israel guitarist Yonatan Gat performs and records as a power trio. The band's unworldly instrumentals are unleashed live with a rare combination of energy and precision, so much so that the group's performances have garnered a semi-legendary reputation, in particular in the DIY circuit, always welcome to artists that push the creative envelop without giving up punch. This year the band is literally taking over SXSW (list of shows here), but those who are not headed to Austin can catch them live at Webster Hall on March 11.

We asked the Gat are a few thoughts on being a nu-New Yorker and being psychedelic - or something. Read the Q&A with Yanatan Gat here.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best psych songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Insanity sometimes pays off: Yonatan Gat, ends tour at The Knit on 11.24

The message emerging musicians should get when hearing music from artists like Yonatan Gat - who is currently on an East Coast tour selling out small venues - is simple: it doesn't really matter what kind of music you play: as long as it's your own thing, and you are awfully good at it, and you keep at it, some people will respond to it. The NYC based musician hasn't even chosen the most crowd pleasing of styles: a genre defying, mostly instrumental mixture of psychedelia, tribal rhythms and punk; but boy, the results are jaw dropping on record, and mind blowing live. By the way, is the band's drummer human? Find that out yourself on November 24 at The Knitting Factory.

Cigarette, and Janel and Anthony, join Yonatan Gat at Comet Ping Pong this Friday!

DC’s Cigarette is to indie what doom is to metal. They take the pretty guitar sounds and twee vocals and stretch them out into slow tendrils of reverb. Sweet indie lullaby music. If you haven’t picked up their experimental sound on vinyl from Dischord Records yet, you can catch them at Comet Ping Pong this Friday, 3/21 on a fascinating bill. They’ll be joined by DC’s Janel and Anthony, and incredible duo of guitar and cello, pushing their impressive musical talents to the limit in cascades of psychedelic imagery and imagination. Headlining the show is Yonatan Gat (once of the Israeli band Monotonix) who has apparently moved to New York to do a very exciting punk/world music thing. I’m sad about no more Monotonix, who put on some of the greatest shows I’ve ever seen, but I’m super excited about this new project. Don’t miss it! --Natan Press
