A Deli Premiere: No Swoon share single “Blame The Messenger” + play Elsewhere on 8/8

Fresh off of their impressive live show appearance at Northside Fest, noisy dream-gazers No Swoon premiere their latest track “Blame The Messenger” here on The Deli. Establishing its soaring melody from the very first note, a triumphant swirl of guitar and keyboards float above deep thudding drums. Vocalist (and guitarist) Tasha Abbott sings in a sultry and elongated style that references Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins. “Blame the messenger and dusty words,” she sings (extended out as “wo-o-o-ords”) against the band's momentary angular accents. “Tongue's all wet (pronounced “way-a-yet”), flooding the curb” points towards a theme of desire and apprehension. With nearly if not all the bass coming from keyboards, the tracks underpinnings are buzzier and less note driven. A central ambient interlude ultimately leads to one more lengthy instrumental break, complete with elevated vocal outro. The band will play a free show this Wednesday 8/8 at Elsewhere's Rooftop with Rodes Rollins. - Dave Cromwell

New Remixed Instupendo EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

A remixed spin of Instupendo’s Faces I Know recently emerged. Slow Magic shifts the celestial dynamic of “Fleur,” playing an emphasis on the pulsating waves of danceable motion. Owsey took the cloud-surfing, delicate breaths of “Boy,” and introduced additional punches of sonics, pulling it out of a dream state by increasing the stakes and immediate impact. The vibrant, at ease tones of “Clementine” are propelled futuristically forward by Laxcity, strolling with a pronounced purpose, before blossoming orchestrally.

Debut Eel Tank Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Sometimes music sounds like taking psychedelics in a black-light, laser-tag arena. Or that Kia Soul commercial with the cruising chipmunks, except way more off the rails. Eel Tank is the moniker of Philly's own Nicki Duval, who works as one of the creative engines behind the beloved music booking collective All Mutable. An abrupt and powerful synthesis of power electronics with elements of thrash, industrial, and jungle are prevalent throughout Eel Tank’s debut album, Cure. Crunchy vocals slip out between the cracks of the kaleidoscopic rhythm; all contained within shifting planes of neon textures. Cure is now available on cassette via experimental electronic label Embalming Lately. - Josh Kelly

New Track: "Brown Boots" - La Palma

The pairing of Chris Walker & Tim Gibbon, otherwise known as La Palma, recently shared a series of singles that make up their self-titled debut album. “Brown Boots” crosses classical guitar, a whistle in the distance, and a walking bass, creating a cinematic western setting. The air of mystery gradually transitions to a warmer island vibe, as the dusty ruffling morphs into a breeze off the ocean water. While one’s suspicions may be relieved, there’s still something beguiling at play.

New Borzoi Boy EP Available for Streaming & Download

Alexandra Gordon, a.k.a. Borzoi Boy, shared a new batch of songs, packaged as the EP, Good Happy. Synth/keys delicately guide these daydreaming, honest tales. Hope and fascination are ever-present in these reflective and inquisitively-voiced compositions. An ability to articulate the personal, emotive elements of the narrative and simultaneously evaluate from the outside looking in grabs and holds ones attention.
