A Deli Premiere: "No Confidence Man" by The Woolly Mammoths

Boston’s The Woolly Mammoths — made up of New Hampshire natives Connor Bailey, Nathan Arsenault, Connor Kennedy, Jake Lennon, and Sam Routhier — create tongue-in-cheek indie dance-rock tracks for music nerds. Their forthcoming LP C I T Y Z E N may be a response to the everyday coming of age story, but the music is anything but average. The Deli Magazine is happy to be premiering lead single “No Confidence Man” (streaming below), an exuberant art-rock track that’s one of C I T Y Z E N’s many intricate highlights.

Of the track, Kennedy said, ”The 'no confidence man' is a male archetype that crops up in the independent music industry too frequently. He comes off as sincere and self aware in his music, but is really abusing these emotional connections to serve himself. I wrote the song through a real first person/dirt-bag-romantic lens, trying to be a bit boisterous instead of deep and melancholy.”

Stream “No Confidence Man” below, and celebrate the release of the track with The Woolly Mammoths at O’Brien’s Pub tonight at 8 pm. - Lilly Milman

Girl Friday call out all the fakers on new single Decoration/Currency, play at the Satellite on 10/24

Girl Friday exposes our city's ingrained obsession with appearances on Decoration/Currency. Ushered by a fun, catchy groove, the indie rock quartet cleverly invoke the reverb-laden surf rock of Duane Eddy infused with a nervy punk energy that is infectiously joyous. "I see you as you are (because I want to)/They see you as you want (because they need to)," they playfully harmonize in unison, a frank declaration that may refer to the duplicitous characters they encounter within their local scene, but also holds a message that's as universal as it gets.

"Decoration/Currency" is currently streaming on all digital music platforms. Catch the band perform at The Satellite on October 24. Juan Rodríguez

Mexicadelia//PDX

Mexicadelia//PDX, a cultural celebration and Pueblo Unido benefit, is coming up this week. Mexicadelia is an underground festival from Guadalajara, full of talented and creative artists. The Portland festival, presented by The Portland Mercury and XRAY FM, is no different. This “music-driven cultural exchange” will be taking place September 15th through the 17th at different locations across town. All three days of the festival will be supporting Pueblo Unido, who support vulnerable Latinx immmigrants through hiring lawyers for deportation cases, getting people released from detention, and reuniting families.

On Saturday, the Shivas will be headlining at Dig A Pony at a free, all ages show. Orquestra Pacifico Tropical will be headlining at Romtoms on Sunday, which will also be a free show. Finally, Tribe Mars will be at Mississippi Studios Monday the 17th. You can see the rest of the lineup on the facebook page here. Hope to see you there!

A statement from Mexicadelia//PDX describing who they are and what they do is below:

“Mexicadelia//PDX intends to be an opportunity for bridge building, multilingual conversation, and catharsis through sonic diplomacy. The festival aims to be an example of what can be done as artists and community organizers to heal, strengthen, and embolden others to act in solidarity in these divisive times. By activating a network of friends, venues, non-profits, artists, purveyors, and music fans we believe it's possible to display a commitment to inclusiveness and equality through the channels we already know and love.”
