Fritz Cook "Sings" doo-wop music to trip to, plays Sunnyvale on 10.22

Uber obscure NYC artist Fritz Cook croons cool, doo-woop-flavored acid dreams that will lull his listeners down the blithe headspace of Alice's rabbit hole. The Brooklyn-based artist, aka Michael Busse, has a set of pipes so buttery that you could just melt into them, and they're paired with instrumentals that feel both familiar and strange--maybe like a '45 that's been left out in the sun too long. Check out b-side "Tundra Rye" off of the newly released Sings streaming below. You can see Fritz live at Sunnyvale this Saturday October 22, supporting Miniature Tigers. - Olivia Sisinni

Take a Listen to K A G's Powerful & Compelling Debut EP

K A G is the solo project of Katie Alice Greer, the incisive frontwoman of D.C. post-punk outfit Priests. Her album, EP A, encompasses four tracks that are disposed to lo-fi aesthetics, sonically hovering around industrial and experimental dance tunes. Though the sound is a departure from Greer’s work with Priests, K A G is an exciting batch of material that feels as precarious as it is powerful and compelling. The EP is available in digital formats online and cassettes via Priests’ label Sister Polygon Records. - Josh Kelly

Pavo Pavo unveils stunning video for "Ran Ran Run," debut album out on 11.11

There's only one thing that can make a great song even better, and that's a visually stunning video, and that's what the collective called SWIMMERS pulled off for NYC's orchestral pop quartet Pavo Pavo's single "Ran Ran Run," a single we alrady raved about when it came out more than one year ago. The video comes with some news we were waiting for: Pavo Pavo is about to release their debut album on November 11 under Bella Union Records - it will be entitled 'Young Narrator In The Breakers.' This is a group of young but extremely competent musicians who worked closely with indie and classical heavyweights such as Here We Go Magic, John Zorn, Dave Longstreth, Porches, Olga Bell, Lucius, Roomful of Teeth, and San Fermin. The record was co-produced by Danny Molad (Lucius) and Sam Cohen (Yellowbirds, Apollo Sunshine), so expectations should be high. Check out also the other single available for streaming, 'Wiserway,' also streaming Below. The band will be performing at Manhattan Inn on 10.19.

Weekend Warrior, October 14 - 16

It’s been another amazing year of music for us here at The Deli Philly. We are now into our 8th year of covering the local music scene, and it’s been an honor and privilege to share in this wonderful experience with you as the community continues to flourish in so many beautifully creative ways. It’s also that time of year again when our dedicated staff and I like to take this opportunity to let loose and celebrate the work that we’ve accomplished over this past year, and of course, we’d like you to join us. The whole Deli gang and I are quite amped about our upcoming Anniversary Bash, happening this Saturday night at PhilaMOCA with Suburban Living, LOUDS, and The Retinas, and we hope that you are too! We look forward to many more years of discovering the best emerging indie artists that Philly has to offer with you. So come out tomorrow night, bring the good vibes, and let’s get weird! And yes, there will be cake – specially made by yours truly! ;-) - Q.D. Tran

The Lemon Twigs unveil new video, go to #1 in our emerging artists charts

It's somewhat ironic that one of the hottest and most provocatively stylish NYC bands of this decade is hailing from that strip of land New Yorkers often (always?) look down on: Long Island. The D'Addario Brothers, aka The Lemon Twigs, look and sound like something your average Brooklyn hipster might frown upon, but their predecessors from fifty years ago would have certainly disagreed with that stance. At a time when the majority of local rockers find inspiration in the noisy and boring looking '90s (by the way, was there a NYC grunge band in the '90s?), the duo, similarly to what Foxygen did five or so years ago, responds with a visually and sonically striking revival of the art pop of the '70s, with glamorous references to David Bowie's androginous look - which, by the way, was born after the frequentation of the promiscuous lifestyle surrounding Andy Wharol's NYC factory. But, of course, none of this would matter if their songs weren't powerful and memorable, which they are. Check out the video for single 'As Long As We're Together' (which took them to the Top 10 of our NYC charts for emerging artists on this same page) and the one for previous single 'These Words.'
