STRNGRS premiere new single '17 Letters,' play February residency at Spike Hill

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times: you can't trust math. For brawling blues rock trio STRNGRS new single '17 Letters,' this is exactly what's been making life so difficult for them lately. The track counts the ways that singer Carson Kelley's been having trouble recently, from writing letters to digging graves. Shouted over shit kicking rhythms that should satisfy the pent-up needs of any White Stripes fan... or anyone else who doesn't trust math either. Check out the track below and see them when they play with the Von Shakes as part of their free February residency all Wednesdays in February at Spike Hill, on Feb 26th. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)


New Music Video: "Distant Light" - Dr. Dog

Dr. Dog premiered a kaleidoscopic, acid-soaked new music video for the track "Distant Light" early today via Stereogum. They'll be doing a two-night run this weekend in Phlly at the E Factory - Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1. The second performance with Saint Rich is already sold out, but you can still get tickets for the first evening with opener The Districts.

NYC Artists on the rise: power trio Libel plays The Knit on 02.18

Taking from the likes of Jawbox and Sunny Day Real Estate with a British twinge, the juiced-up post-grunge Brooklyn power-trio Libel brings to the table a sound that could be described like a summary of what happened in the 90s, with an added glam attitude. Singer Gavin Dunaway's solid tenor, with its Bowiesque tinges, can croon and scream at will, and would be an asset for any band. Speaking about Bowie... as you may know, he's a huge fan of The Pixies, so much so that he had them open for him and even used to play some of their songs live. Libel's single and standout track “This Is Love” (streaming here) from their latest, well-produced LP "Music For Car Commercials," sounds exactly like the fruit of an imaginary collaboration between the Bostonian band and the Thin White Duke - we dig it! - Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!


New Track: "Raincheck" - Marge

We've been noticing a rise in female-fronted garage-twee acts who are creating some adorably charming, lo-fi tunes. Below is a new track called "Raincheck" from local fledgling all-female four-piece Marge. They'll be performing this Sunday, February 2 at the Golden Tea House if you'd like to catch them live. Enjoy!


Chris Coleslaw "Supermoon"

Chris Coleslaw is a singer/songwriter with an incredible voice and a "Weak Foundation". His latest album, Supermoon, is collection of beautifully sad songs that if you are in the right mood can make this chilling winter a little warmer. This is something about a shared heartbreak or shared sadness that makes our journey a little easier.

You can catch Chris at Rock Island Brewing on Feb. 20th.



Which of these emerging local acts should be The Deli Austin's next Artist of the Month?
