March 2016
My Gold Mask
"Anxious Utopia
"
mp3

Gretta Rochelle and Jack Armondo working on the dark electro-pop sound of My Gold Mask since 2009. On their latest album, dropping today, March 4th, on Moon Sounds Records, Anxious Utopia, the duo may have finally found perfection. It may be the addition of James Andrews on production, but most of the songs on the album were written by Armondo and Rochelle. This album is a mixture of dance pop in the vain of Carly Rae Jepsen and dark gothic pop of Siouxsie Sioux. Rochelle is powerful and commanding through out with Armondo and Andrews providing her driving and infectious club ready tracks. Anxious Utopia is My Gold Mask clearly firing on all cylinders.


This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

In the Cut: Lushlife

It’s been about 4 years now since we first sat down for an interview with Lushlife, a.k.a. Raj Haldar. And with the success of his latest LP Ritualized and mutually busy schedules, it took a long string of emails and rescheduling to finally find time to sit down for a chat. We managed to beat out the dinner rush at South Philly’s Khmer Kitchen and snagged a table for a tasty traditional Cambodian meal, drinks, and whole lotta catchin’ up. Come dive into our discussion about Lush’s collaborative work with production trio CSLSX, RitualizedThe Deli Philly’s March Record of the Month, and find out what’s on the horizon for the rising emcee/producer as we pick his brain and get a little silly HERE.

Grubby Little Hands Record Release Show at JB's April 30

Psych-pop purveyors Grubby Little Hands have released their new album Garden Party to the mases via Lefse/Chill Mega Chill. The group was started by multi-instrumentalists Donnie Felton and Brian Hall, after meeting in college while studying music composition and theory. The duo released two previous albums, Imaginary Friends (2009) and The Grass Grew Around Our Feet (2012), and now with their latest record, Felton and Hall have been joined by guitarist Joseph Primavera and drummer Chad Brown to help fill out their hazy, sedative-pop sound. You can help Grubby Little Hands celebrate the arrival of Garden Party this evening at Johnny Brenda's, where they'll be joined by labelmate Shelf Life and Cold Foamers, who dropped their new album, Musketball, earlier this year. So take a dab & get lost in the sonics of the night. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman

Weekend Warrior, April 29 - May 1

The Lawsuits have been on the road with labelmate Former Belle in support of their forthcoming album Moon Son, due out May 13 via Randm Records. For the follow-up to Cool Cool Cool, the band has taken what its has learned from the experience of recording with Bill Moriarty (Dr. Dog, Man Man), and set sail on its own, experimenting and self-producing the new release. But don’t fret; the beloved folk-tinged pop ditties still remain true to the group’s core. Former Belle will be warmed up from tour, providing a polished sheen to the intimate songs from his new album Foreign Bed. Foxtrot & the Get Down will provide the spark needed to get this evening going. The Foundry, 1000 Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ (Photo by Ed Newton) - H.M. Kauffman
