Slip into seductive groove of “High Gear,” which can be found on the freshly released Warm Blood Pt. 1. We're thinking The Purple One was on his mine for this one. Really making us feel good this morning!

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Alt Rock Artist: Curtis Cooper!

We are nearing the end of this year's Deli Philly Best Emerging Artists Poll. After compiling the jurors', readers'/fans' and writers' votes for the Alt Rock category, congrats go out to Curtis Cooper! The Philly songwriter caught our attention towards the end of 2015, and then truly emerged on the local music scene last year with the release of his debut Laughing In Line. The album begins in a more radio-friendly manner, but as you delve deeper into the cuts, it becomes apparent that gifted artist has a much more diverse musical palette that we predict will only expand as time goes on. BTW: We absolutely flipped over the video of his powerful performance of the previously unreleased single "2016," which you can view below.  

 

And coming in a very close race for second and third are the good time boys of Mumblr and the pot-lovin', rockin' ladies of Marge. We'll also be back very soon with our final Readers'/Fans' Poll for the categories of Hip Hop/Funk/Electronica, so stay tuned!

New Track: "Have You Ever" - Kerin Maguire

21 year-old Kerin Maguire sticks to a folk frame of simplicity on her single “Have You Ever”. Featured on her forthcoming debut album Self-Titled, the song unfolds as a reminder of pleasures and pitfalls of personal relationships. Remembering the low moments, the narrative circles back to a hopeful outlook despite the momentary melancholy. Vocally, she maintains a level albeit confessional tone, which peaks at key ending points in exclamatory fashion. Maguire is slated to perform at The Barbary on Thursday, March 23, along with Dirty Purple, Beard, and The Year End.

New Aphra Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

Rebecca Waychunas, a.k.a. Aphra, strings out stirring, sensitive songs, developed through personal/familial struggles. Her latest release, Sadness is a Gesture (Inherent Sounds), exhibits an unimpeded array of vocally-anchored, heart-rendering exposures. These songs maintain an intimate, aching proximity, aided instrumentally by scene-sketching electronics, molding the many moods. Waychunas finds a way to create elegantly raw music that shifts the focus onto the real and gritty darkness of addiction. She’s set to perform on Wednesday, March 8 at The Barbary to celebrate its release, with a lineup that includes Blood Sound and The Undercover Dream Lovers.

New Track: "If You Harden On The Inside" - Hezekiah Jones

Proceeds from “If You Harden On The Inside,” the new single from Hezekiah Jones, will benefit the Women’s Law Project. Paced by the bump of bass and snap of snare, the song delicately weaves, led by sunny stretches that counter the potential commentary of lines like the power play/greed of “What’s the point of having all the world? When your hands are so small” or the call to kindness of “If you harden on the inside, you’ll be easy to break.” While it may seem simple to get swept up in the recent reign of negativity, If You Harden On The Inside, with its inviting harmony and delicate sway, reminds us that the power of positivity remains.
