Weeknight unveil video from upcoming LP + tour the US

In the four years since their brooding and aptly titled debut Post-Everything, the members of the no-wave inspired outfit Weeknight have had time to consider where to take their music next. Last month the band released the first video from their upcoming album Dead Beat Creep, titled "Outside the Pale", proving that the last few years were well worth the wait. The track is just as darkly beautiful as their previous work, but with a more refined pop sensibility - here they manage to achieve an austere atmosphere with enveloping synths, reverberating guitar and a cathartic chorus. Weeknight’s sophomore work is due February 1st, and the band will be bringing their new tunes to an upcoming Brooklyn show at Alphaville on February 20th, after a three week US tour. In the meantime, check out the video below, and play it on the train while pretending you’re in your own movie. - Sunny Betz

Genre-benders Okey Dokey play Mercy Lounge on 01.25

As if the past several posts haven't given enough indication, January has presented the Nashville indie music connoisseur with plenty of shows to attend. Should you consider yourself such a sommelier of tunes, head down to Mercy Lounge on January 25th to hear psych-rock genre-benders Okey Dokey play some tracks from their upcoming album Tell All Your Friend (sic), which drops on March 29th. After touring throughout 2017, the band -- which consists of Aaron Martin and Johny Fisher -- spent last year writing and collaborating with fellow musicians and friends such as Nick Bockrath of Cage the Elephant and Liz Cooper to create what you'll hear on their upcoming sophomore album. Tell All Your Friend already has a few singles out; one of them, "When They Get Older", has a nice retro bop to it, and it features the funk touch of Rayland Baxter. Check out the music video for "When They Get Older" below. - Will Sisskind

Check it out HERE, and join the cult!





The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Breaklite

Breaklite have branded themselves “the stoner punks (from hell) we all know and love,” and that just might be the case after you take their debut EP Bloodshot for a spin. It gave us the feels, and we’re down to see/hear where this party bus is going. We recently caught up with frontman Johnny Germ for our Featured Artist(s) Q&A. Check it out below, and join the cult!

The Deli: How did you start making music?

Johnny Germ: Well, I have been playing in bands since I was in high school in 2005, and my brother Casey Germ and Steve Hagan have been in and out of bands with each other since about 2007/2008. After those bands dissolved, I played acoustic for a while, and was longing to get back into the whole band thing so in 2014/2015 we decided to get together and write some songs.

TD: Where did the name Breaklite come from?

JG: Well, my brother was driving down the highways thinking of band names, and he saw a sea of brake lights a head of him and thought “what a sick name” so we decided to mess with the spelling and viola! We are now the stoner punks we all know and love, Breaklite.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences?

JG: Our influences range so much from bands like Iggy and the Stooges, Johnny Cash, T. Rex, Led Zeppelin, Jay Reatard, Nirvana, The Replacements, Fidlar, Black Flag, Oasis…. The list goes on, but if you listen closely, you can hear a little bit of everything.

TD: What artists (local, national and/or international) are you currently listening to?

JG: Currently, we are all huge fans of the UK band Shame. We’re also really into Full Bush, Grace Vonderkuhn, The Valets, Thin Lips, and (our homies) The Warhawks.

TD: What's the first concert that you ever attended and first album that you ever bought?

JG: I can’t speak for the rest of the band but my first concert was Warped Tour 2005, and the first album I ever bought was Blink 182’s Dude Ranch in 6th grade. Still one of my favorites to this day.

TD: What do you love about Philly?

JG: Well, there’s the kick-ass music scene and venues like Kung Fu Necktie, Boot & Saddle, Johnny Brenda’s, Connie’s Ric Rac, and The Barbary. Also, cheesesteaks though… we all love cheesesteaks... and the Eagles. GO BIRDS!

TD: What do you hate about Philly?

JG: I don’t wanna sound corny, but there isn’t much to hate…

TD: What are your plans for 2019?

JG: 2019 brings a lot our way. Whether it’s the launch of our “indie label” Club Germ Records, working on our follow-up full-length to the Bloodshot EP, or my personal favorite - our upcoming tour to SXSW.

TD: What was your most memorable live show?

JG: Probably the last one we played at the Barbary. The crowd was great, and we played our hearts out with two bands we have so much love for being Full Bush and Grace Vonderkuhn.

TD: What's your favorite thing to get at the deli?

JG: Is this a food question? If so, I’m saying an Italian hoagie with hot peppers…hahaha.
