Through an unnerving noir mannerism, Brooklyn band Twin Guns capitalizes on a sinister and cinematic sound, delivering a sludgy combination of post punk tension and Spaghetti Western influences – with all the related "hallucidelic" imagery and hazy sonics. This surreal sound is complemented in the video for "Johnny’s Dead" (streaming below) by a dark atmosphere filled with ...

Brooklyn-based Kew’s latest release Typical Me is a great summer EP for the dejected and self-deprecating. Energetic bass lines and bouncy angular guitar riffs counteract downtrodden lyrical themes, resulting in lively tracks that hurt in just the right way. The tune “Blind” (streaming below) echoes early emo acts like Rites of Spring with its melancholic lyrics and ...

If we’re going to be honest about it, 2017 has yet to produce a real summer banger. Sure, you can make arguments for a few radio hits, but you’d really have to argue that one of them fits that magical "song of the summer" moniker. However, NYC-based MICKY (aka Michael Persall), might have just delivered the ultimate track to save you from those summer blues. "He Won’t," the Motown-pop influenced singer’s newest song premiering exclusively with the Deli, is another perfect example of MICKY’s penchant for making vintage sounds feel fresh and modern. With smooth horns, soulful falsetto vocals and funky synths, "He Won’t" is easily your perfect top-down driving tune. Stream it below, and we dare you to not fall head over heels in love. – Olivia Sisinni

Drug Pizza is a punchy four-piece hailing from N.Y.C. with “big rock n roll shaped dreams.” Their nonchalant lyrics in songs like “No Reaction” are a nod back to garage rock and punk bands that inspired them (“I don’t care about your broken arms / Bones heal, and you didn’t fall too far”), and their instrumentals are clean without being clinical. Lead singer Madeline Steinberg’s vocals fall perfectly in tune with classic ...
