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.

The Folks at The Deli NYC


American Trappist Opening for Oldermost at JB's Aug. 27

A commanding presence draws one towards the songs of American Trappist, the new project from Joe Michelini (formerly of River City Extension). After releasing three EPs in succession, compromising the totality of his self-titled debut album, which will be available on September 2 via Death Salon, American Trappist places spellbinding lyricism at the forefront. While the context shifts from the ghostly mysterious to a heartfelt, emotional spectrum, it’s equally captivating in sincerity, shrouded in Americana. The gripping, soulful folk of Candice Martello, a.k.a. Hemming, opens the evening. She'll be performing solo, which may give her the freedom to unleash some new material. Oldermost closes out the bill, providing a sense of calm. Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

American Trappist - Nothing Short of Faithful from Brian L. Tice Jr.


Weekend Warrior, Aug. 26-28

Yasss - the weekend is upon us! While many will be jetting off to get their last bit of summer beach time, we have you true city dwellers covered. Enjoy your space with Cayetana tonight at PhilaMOCA! They’ll be wrapping up their mini-run with Toronto indie-rock quartet Weaves, who recently put out an impressive self-titled debut album. The gals will also be taking off to Australia next month (way cool!) before setting out on a massive North American fall tour with their “brothers” Pup. This evening might be your last chance to experience Cayetana at such an intimate space for a while so take advantage of it. And swing by early to catch Fake BoyfriendPhilaMOCA, 531 12th St., 8pm, $10, All Ages (Photo by Sammy Katz) - H.M. Kauffman

The Deli Philly's Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner: Kodiak Park

Kodiak Park - "How funny? A park with this bear name in a town called Bear in a region that really has no bears." That’s how irony became a band name for our recent Featured Artist(s) Poll Winner. We had a chance to catch up with frontman John Panasuk to learn more about the fledgling Philly pop-psych project, which you can read about HERE. You can also take a listen and download the group’s new scorching single, “Holy Ghosts,” for free below.
