Paper Fairy play footsie in new video for "We Laugh," plays Berlin 12.8

Paper Fairy returns with a video for the new single "We Laugh", featuring project mastermind Chris Gaskell and a whole lot of feet. The single comes from the NYC-based band's Tautology EP, a follow-up to last year's Haunter Haunted. On Tautology, Gaskell's avant-garde pop creates a dialogue between the concepts of the real self and the performed self. The video for "We Laugh" shows this conversation through close-ups of feet touching, Gaskell's face appearing in the big toenail (an unlikely place for a face to appear), and glass causing blood to spill, along with other examinations of body, pain, and voyeurism. Take a look at the strange, weirdly-engrossing video below, and catch Paper Fairy at Berlin on December 8th for the video release show. - Will Sisskind

Happy Birthday, Deli Magazine New England!

There are so many things to be grateful for today: family, friends, good food, good times. Here at Deli New England, we are grateful for one more thing, and that is the opportunity to cover New England’s always-thriving music scene. For ten years, we have been privileged to witness the rise of talented artists from Connecticut’s New York border to Maine’s Atlantic seaboard. Since the birth of this branch, on this date ten years ago, we have had our many editors explore with delight hip-hop acts, indie-pop darlings, rock-punks, and so much more. Below you will find nine posts from different editors of this magazine over the last ten years. A big thank you to Meghan Chiampa for kicking off this journey and letting me know of the special occasion at hand. Happy holidays and happy reading! - Rene Cobar

Joseph Mcdonald - Excellent New Roots Record "Human Dogs"

Joseph Mcdonald hails from rural Ontario and creates music that represents the countryside perfectly. He just released a new record “Human Dogs” which opens with the title track. It’s a pleasant sounding roots tune with a nice melody and acoustic guitar. The album features some excellent pedal steel work that’ll make you wanna cry. I recommend listening to Human Dogs and it will help you escape the busy city life. Mcdonald’s main inspirations are Willie Nelson, John Prine and Roger Miller and you can’t go wrong with any of those selections. “Human Dogs” available now! – Kris Gies

Bay Babes: Tricycle Records Releases Compilation Vol. 9

Our friends at Tricycle Records released their 9th compilation album this month featuring a whole lotta women that we dig on. There’s Kendra McKinley, whose “Asleep in Winter” showcases her connective and empathetic lyrics in funky pop with looping pedal work (Performed by Kendra McKinley, recorded and mixed by Scott McDowell at the Henry Miller Memorial Library).

We dig on Micropixie’s “Dark Sight of the Moon,” with its Pink Floyd inspirations and the powerful push against modern day politics on the home front and beyond. It’s electro psych pop dripping with social justice narratives. If you haven't caught it yet, check out her video for "Como Minimo," shot at our beloved Lovejoy's Tea Room in San Francisco. 

Another favorite is Beckylin and Her Druthers with “You Ain’t Woman Enough”…to take my man. Damn straight. A nice and exciting find for any country fans. Beckylin and Her Druthers are bluegrass and twangin’ and powerfully sassy. -Michelle Kicherer, Associate Editor

HOAX release new single "Unconditional" from forthcoming debut record "b?"

We continue to rush headfirst without resistance towards the future, but at least HOAX have the sense to slow down, examine the world, and put it to lyrics and song. Their Motown-influenced Queens-born indie pop-rock shines again on their newest single "Unconditional", a cut from their upcoming debut record b?, which drops next summer. Through its catchy pop hooks, "Unconditional" forces listeners to consider their own Terms of Service and decide with which parts of it they do and don't agree. It's a reflective track that urges all of us to take a moment and figure ourselves out before we crash and burn on our way into the next decade. Take a listen to "Unconditional" below. - Will Sisskind
