The Deli's NYC issue #44 is online!

Deli Readers,

I know, it seems like we put our latest issue out just the other day - but no, we haven't switched to monthly. It's just that the fall in NYC is a busy time for us, and with CMJ week and our NYC Synth Expo (linked to BEMF) coming up, there's a lot to write about.

Here's our 44th issue of The Deli NYC (one of our finest!). Check out cover band Stolen Jars, they'll be performing at one of the (several) Deli CMJ 2015 shows!

Brave Town Releases EP

Since they won our Band of the Month title last year, we've been keeping tabs on indie/alt rockers Brave Town. Yesterday the guys dropped an EP, and we're already singing along.

Brimming with melodic guitar riffs, smooth, youthful vocals and tasteful percussion,  the 4-song release shows the sunny side of alternative rock. With this EP, Brave Town achieve the delicate balance between deliberate and organic, and find a natural middle ground among the quartet's range of influences. The opening track "Denim" is vibrant and danceable, while "Is It Worth It" takes the acoustic route to highlight encouraging and uplifting lyrics.

The Brave Town EP is the perfect thing to listen to if you're feeling down. Or happy. Or getting ready to conquer the day. Or really any time at all.

Give it a listen here, and don't miss Brave Town's release show at The High Watt this Friday with Corey Kilgannon and Fleurie. -Caroline Bowman

Twiggs, "Twiggs II"

Clear your schedule, stock the fridge and turn on the lava lamps, because Nashville's dual-fronted Twiggs are taking us all on a neo-psychedelic trip through time and space with their sophomore release Twiggs II.

After catching the TN-via-OK 4-piece in the back room of Crying Wolf last spring, even after putting a dent in my second flask, I knew to keep an eye on them. Wearing their 60s and 70s influences on their sleeves, swirling in droney grooves and gritty riffs while maintaining a freewheeling punk disposition, Twiggs have incorporated the past and present into a 11-track album that is nothing short of hallucinogenic.

Reminiscent of experimental guitar rockers like The Velvet Underground and Jefferson Airplane, "One is for the Gun" and "Touching You" are instantly classic, while "Crazy Nights" adds modern percussion and cadence to the mix. The band gets a little Pink Floyd-y with the melancholy "I Love You So Love Me," and the echoing chant at the end of "Lonely Coyote" will rip your heart right out. Staff pick "Are You High" will burrow itself into your brain and stay there. Forever.

Give Twiggs II a listen here, download it on iTunes and catch Twiggs 10.10 at The Five Spot with Buffalo Rodeo, Santah and Seratonins, put on by Palaver Records. -Caroline Bowman

Riot Fest- Toronto Sept 19-20th

Riot Fest – The punk, rock, alternative, metal, and hip-hop crowd’s favourite festival of the Year is on this weekend. Besides Heavy Hitters taking the stages (Alexisonfire, WuTang Clan, Weezer, Motorhead, Rancid) we’ve got some suggestions for bands you might not be too familiar with, but are definitely worth taking the time to check out.

The OBGM’s Ladies and gentlemen...the Oooh Baby Gimme Mores...OBGM's for short. You may recognize them from a Budweiser commercial from about a year ago. These guys straight rip though. A four piece garage band from Toronto that's hectic and fuzzy. Pure punk rock with some keyboards/synth spice sprinkled on top. Their debut full length record was released almost a year ago to the day. Fire it up from the top... "Beat Up Kidz" is a sweet tune. I've only heard good things about their live show. They must be doing something right as they cracked the Riot Fest lineup this year! See them at 1:45pm on Saturday at Downsview Park! – Kris Gies

The Dirty Nil – Playing full fledged Energetic Rock ‘n’ Roll these dudes are sure to put on a good show for you, Get your dance on when these dudes hit the stage with their in your face, guitar driven, fast tunes! They’re playing Saturday on The Radicals Stage @8pm

Foxtrot- Travelling all the way from Montreal – - Although not quite a hometown act, Foxtrot will surprise you with heavy electric pop sounds, you just may need a break from all those, heavy rock bands, and there’s no better way than checking out FOXTROT, Sunday on The Radicals Stage @1:30pm

Rarity – Saturday Sept 19 on the Radicals Stage @2:45pm Another Local, surprising your ears, and the Riot Fest lineup with their fantastic burrito eating abilities, amoung their obvious talents of playing you singable rock songs. Fitting in to the line up like seasoned veterans. Make sure to catch them on The Radicals Stage @ 2:45pm on Saturday Sept 19
