Announcing The Deli Philly's 10th Anniversary Bash!

Dear Deli Readers,

This is a big one! We are very excited to announce the lineup for The Deli Philly’s 10th Anniversary Bash on Saturday, October 6th at PhilaMOCA. Yup – that’s right; for nearly a decade now, our branch of The Deli has been proudly exposing you to the wonderful, homegrown talent that has fostered this kick-ass music community of ours. It’s been an honor and a privilege to document this slice of musical history and share it with you, and we hope to continue on this journey with you for many years to come.

Headlining this momentous occasion will be glam quartet Sixteen Jackies, who also recently released our June Record of the Month. If you’ve never experienced them live, you are certainly in for a treat, and if you have, then we’ll see you there. They’ll also be joined by the anthemic songwriting of American Trappist, the brainchild of former River City Extension frontman Joe Michelini. And feel free to submit yourself to the ladies of Madalean Gauze, who will be bringing their naughty brand of post-punk/psych-rock hijinx to the mausoleum’s hallowed halls. Yeah – it’s on. Looking forward to sharing this very special evening with you & remember to check back for more deets!

Much love,

Q.D. Tran & The Deli Staff

Joe Kenkel's "FBP" is weird, earnest indie music at its finest

 Let's get real for just a second- "FBP" is a weird song. But don't let that deter you- this is definitely my favorite weird song of 2018. "FBP" stands for Football Poet- at least that's the main lyrical hook in the song. I'd like to ask singer-songwriter Joe Kenkel what exactly that means, seeing as football and poetry couldn't be more unrelated, but let's look to the lyrics for clues, shall we? "Breakin' my bones / singin' for you" gives some indication that perhaps there is a sense of beauty in football, or that there's something poetic about a tackle? Clearly all of this is part of a grand scheme to impress a lover, but for what reason... I'll let you decide. Kenkel even animated a trippy music video for the song, which you can watch here. Enough speculating on my part- this is weird, earnest indie rock at it's finest. -Geena Kloeppel

Tom Galloway's "Our Due Time" is an uptempo yet sentimental country song

If you like the heavy, plucked western electric guitar leitmotif that has reached even Lana Del Rey's recorded music, you're in the right place. Tom Galloway's new song "Our Due Time" off of his most recent record Cross Currents is of the darker strand of country music that inspired this curmudegon-esque tone and texture. Galloway's voice is warm and smooth, but the timbre is even lovelier when sung in harmony. There are some really cool, funky instrumental breakdowns in place of a vocal bridge, featuring piano, bass and a groovy synth solo, which are the hidden gems in the song. "Our Due Time" is tastefully sprinkled with these bits of ear candy, and the instrumental moments are just as important as the sections with vocals. Galloway clearly has his own take on country/bluegrass, and we're here for it. -Geena Kloeppel
