Synth-new wave Jumpcuts releases lyric video for new single Headlights

Founded in 2008, Jumpcuts has seen several iterations of its lineup, but the quality remains. The Baltimore-based Andy Shankman founded the band and artfully constructed its standout rocktronic flavor, mixing catchy vocal bits with swirls of instrumentals and synthesizers. Due to release a new 7”, Fiber Optic Bondage, Jumpcuts has put out a new single and accompanying video, Headlights, which you can catch below. It’s hopeful and dancy and should find a new home on your playlist. -Jonathan Goodwin


Richmond's funky nine-piece The Flavor Project play The Camel, 10/17

They’re big and they’re brash. The Flavor Project, a funk and R&B outfit from Richmond, features nine members and a seductive sound that fits perfectly in a smoky music hall packed with dancing listeners. Drums and brass unite to form a transcendental rhythm while the guitar-playing creates a funky beat that creeps into your body and makes you move and the vocals blast right to your head and heart. They’re playing The Camel on 10/16 with Philly-based Ill Doots. Doors at 8, tickets for $7.-Jonathan Goodwin


Soulful folk group Luray to play at Baltimore Folk Fest, 10/24

For those times when your heart and soul need some musical rejuvenation, you'll find solace and tranquility in Richmond-based folk band Luray. Their music is soft, yet invigorating, rife with plucky banjoing and deeply resonant vocals. Give Luray a listen and let the worries of the world melt away with their homey vibe and optimistic beats. You can enjoy their sweet, lurid sounds at the Baltimore Folk Fest on 10/24. -Jonathan Goodwin


Richmond rockers Hoax Hunters to release new album Clickbait, 10/16

There’s no deception with Richmond’s Hoax Hunters: they just rock. The trio makes enough noise to pass as a bigger band, couching 80s and 90s influences into a modern sound. Heavy, brash, loud - quintessential garage rock with just the right amount of lo-fi crunch. Blast your sense with Hoax Hunters and avoid disappointment. They’re putting out a new LP on 10/16 entitled Clickbait, available through Cherub Records, so justify the album’s name and click here to get yourself a copy. -Jonathan Goodwin


The Deli's NYC issue #44 is online!

Deli Readers,

I know, it seems like we put our latest issue out just the other day - but no, we haven't switched to monthly. It's just that the fall in NYC is a busy time for us, and with CMJ week and our NYC Synth Expo (linked to BEMF) coming up, there's a lot to write about.

Here's our 44th issue of The Deli NYC (one of our finest!). Check out cover band Stolen Jars, they'll be performing at one of the (several) Deli CMJ 2015 shows!
