Golden Rose Boy exposes a glitch in the system in new EP "Floppy Disk"

To say 2020 feels like a glitch in the system would not be a stretch of the imagination: it has all the qualities of disruption indeed. Golden Rose Boy, a chiptune artist from Manchester, NH, gets the tone just right in his May release Floppy Disk which takes the synth-arcade sounds we recognize and morphs them into something sinister and entertaining at once. Tracks like “Lofi Music To Die To - Rest” have a cold ambiance to them, robotic, yes, but also very much grounded in a dark type of biological-sounding atmosphere. “A Summoning - The Inevitable” feels like the anthem to the marching parade of your nightmares, it swells and growls in a manner that excites the imagination. Overall the short entry is something bizarre and welcomed, all at once, it fits the mood of the year; Stream “Golden Rose Boy - Victory Lap” below for something outside your comfort zone. - Rene Cobar

John Spignesi Band calls up good spirits in new EP "three.."

If you need a breather from the tension of 2020 that seems to not let up, we got New Haven’s John Spignesi Band to help you relax for a while with a new EP titled three.. John Spignesi, the talented guitarist and vocalist of the band, has assembled a group of gents that know how to jam, sticky-good: Chris Mitchell provides the ambient keys in each track, Matt Alling some lightning-fast drum fills in “For you” and new bassist Joe Jeffery a growling bass intro in “The Bottom Line.” John Spignesi leads the way, in the way a jam band leader should, with a sense of fun above seriousness in performance, pressing importance in instrumental execution. In soulful rock tracks like “Make It Count,” it is easy to imagine a world connected, in the enjoyment of kind spirits and good stories. For the open road or the afternoon at home, there is three. streaming below. - Rene Cobar, photo by Isa Rose

A Deli Premiere: "Back in The Woods" (feat. Tyre$$e X, Genuine & Jdot) by Big Finny

Diversity above all else, production and delivery excellent—that is the motto of Salem, Massachusetts’ Big Finny, and it shows in his new collaborative single “Back in The Woods.” The new 3LTHEGOD x Ran-produced song has Finny’s addictive brand of melody stamped on it, accompanied by a flow for flow performance with Boston area rappers Tyre$$e X, Genuine and Jdot. Arpeggiating piano notes chart the path for each of the artists to tactically deploy their pressing thoughts, stinging and reminding the listener, in rhythm, that New England can be a hot spot for the genre too. Genuine’s Spanish verse adds to the trap beat a hint of reggaeton’s hot commodities; each rapper takes its time on the mic, heating up and transferring that energy to the next performer with fierce intent. “Back in The Woods” is a power move and paid tribute to the New England rap community, performed by a group of young artists on the rise; we are thrilled to premiere “Back in The Woods” below for you. - Rene Cobar

Kerrin Connolly soars in new record "Almost"

Kerrin Connolly gives us something sweet to chew on, something excitable to muse over with the release of her fun indie-rock record Almost. The new compilation of tracks by this talented Weymouth, Massachusetts resident is a blast from start to finish: tracks like “It’s a Conspiracy,” and “Planesong” blend ukulele strings with slightly overdriven electric guitar riffs and bop-pop drums for a chill type of entertainment. “Contagious”  is true to its namesake: funny, catchy, and almost theatrical in its presentation. The title track features a groovy bassline, slow dance-inducing, and Connolly’s impressive vocal elevations reaching falsettos that soothe ears with their lovely warmth. “Thanks for Playing” is intimate and honest, like the whole record, and that is the charm that Connolly can’t separate from—thank goodness for that. Stream “Contagious” below for a style you won’t soon forget, for an artist destined to be a part of your playlist. - Rene Cobar
