Weekend Warrior, August 17 - 19

Hardcore and noise converge in the music of Great Weights. The band’s self-titled EP is jarring - a raw release of inhibited emotion. There’s a heaviness that pushes back in agitated expression. That ability to expose personal vulnerability and make it work as a source of strength creates a powerful universal dynamic. The stakes are high as unimpeded observations and analysis are on full display, as the music stews in calm yet formidable swells, or blitzes ahead with an uncontainable tenacity.  This Saturday, the band represents part of the slate, which also includes Soul GloDemodex , and Rainbow Crimes [a new project from Leah Basarab (Ex. By. V.), Alex Smith (Solarized), Katy Otto (Callowhill, Trophy Wife)] at Children’s Community School of West Philadelphia, which will be host The Trans Equity Project Fund-rager. The Trans Equity Project offers peer-based support for trans individuals, sexual health and HIV prevention counseling, mentorship with transitioning, legal advocacy, and much more. It’s a rager for a good cause so come join! – Michael Colavita

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

Saying “goodbye” can often be a difficult act, and on Goodbye Max’s self-titled debut album (which is available on cassette via Fox Food Records), the Philly singer-songwriter beautifully and elegantly captures those conflicted feels. Unpacking an “old box” of memories, he leaves you drowning in a pool of emotions, before surfacing for that much-needed gasp of life. Goodbye Max’s desire this year is to find other musicians to collaborate with. So take a listen below, check out what this project is about HERE, and get in touch with him ASAP!





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

Saying “goodbye” can often be a difficult act, and on Goodbye Max’s self-titled debut album (which is available on cassette via Fox Food Records), the Philly singer-songwriter beautifully and elegantly captures those conflicted feels. Unpacking an “old box” of memories, he leaves you drowning in a pool of emotions, before surfacing for that much-needed gasp of life. Goodbye Max’s desire this year is to find other musicians to collaborate with. So take a listen below, check out what this project is about below, and get in touch with him ASAP!

The Deli: How did you start making music? 

Goodbye Max: I took guitar lessons at a small music school for about nine years. In middle and high school, my friends and I played music together, and we briefly had a band. It wasn't until later on that I got a USB mic and started recording stuff to my laptop on my own. I slowly became absorbed in the process of recording. Song-making was (and still is) a creative and emotional outlet for me.

TD: Where did the name Goodbye Max come from? 

GM: It's a line from a Pink Floyd song called "The Gunner's Dream". Pink Floyd is one of my favorite bands of all time. Also, the words Goodbye Max could describe what this project has meant to me - saying goodbye to the past. I guess "Max" is symbolic of all the things and people left behind as time passes and things change. I feel like so many people focus on where they're going in life and what the end goal is. Maybe I'm just nostalgic because I get stuck in old memories easily. It's like the feeling of going through an old box of stuff or photos - that's what I want Goodbye Max to feel/sound like.

TD: What are your biggest musical influences?

GM: I'm inspired by so many people that it would be hard to name them all! Early in my life (thanks to my mom), I was exposed to a lot of Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, and Radiohead. More recently, my biggest inspirations as a songwriter have been Noah Gundersen, Phoebe Bridgers, and (Sandy) Alex G.

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

GM: A Philly band, Weller, just put out an excellent record that I highly recommend giving a listen. Spencer Radcliffe, Field Medic, and Euphoria Again are other artists I've had on repeat lately. Oh, and someone told me I remind them of Flatsound, so I've been checking out their discography.

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

GM: My first real concert was Simon and Garfunkel back when the venue was called the Wachovia Center. I went with my mom, and I don't remember much about the show, probably because I was young and not as used to staying up very late. The first album I ever bought was Death Cab for Cutie's Transatlanticism. They're another of my big influences.

TD: What do you love about Philly?

GM: I love how there are areas that feel like a big city and other areas that feel like little neighborhoods. 

TD: What do you hate about Philly?

GM: The occasional lateness of the trains when I'm trying to get to class (I commute to Temple).

TD: What are your plans for 2018?

GM: I want to record and release a longer album by the end of the year. Also, I'd like to collaborate with some other musicians.

TD: What was your most memorable live show?

GM: We used to play small shows at World Cafe Live with the music school I took lessons at. They were to show off how much we'd learned. I got to play the guitar solo in "Comfortably Numb" by Pink Floyd. Afterwards, someone came up to me and told me how great it was. That was a good feeling. I haven't played a live show as Goodbye Max, but it would be cool to do that sometime.

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

GM: I'm a vegetarian these days, so it depends what they have!

New Track: "No Surprise" - Trilobytes

Pairing lyrical lines with opposing viewpoints, “No Surprise,” the latest single from Trilobytes, covers multiple angles. Building from a somewhat menacing guitar riff and then marching on, the track’s subject appears to consider the possibilities without locking into a particular path. Sitting in the middle of dueling outlooks, a resignation of optimism appears to win out, but not before a brooding, instrumental foray.
