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.

New Music Video: "Come Out Alright" - Little Strike

"I am an Israeli Yemeni American woman. I make electronic world folk music. Here I am at a carnival." It's a nice, simple intro for the video of "Come Out Alright," which was derived from a more complex situation that found Tamar Dart, a.k.a. Little Strike, on the receiving end of an email from a close friend, who needed to reveal his heroin addiction to an understanding soul. The beautifully-crafted music video was directed, co-produced, and edited by Peter English. Little Strike will be performing next in Philly on Sunday, October 2 at Kung Fu Necktie.


Abi Reimold Opening for Ava Luna at Space 1026 Sept. 25

Raw, visceral, dreamy, anything she wants to sound like. Abi Reimold brings a sound and fury that cradles - sometimes like a loving mother, and other times like a bed of razor blades. But it is always hauntingly beautiful. And she’ll be bringing that sound and fury to Space 1026 when she opens for avant-pop Brooklynites Ava Luna. They'll also be joined by Philly psych-popsters Laser Background. Come out for a rare performance at the Chinatown art space! Space 1026, 1026 Arch St., $10, All Ages (Photo by Skyler Burkhart) - Keith Kelley


Dear Friend Record Release Show at Ortlieb's Sept. 24

The collective advance of Dear Friend rains down like an avalanche. The persistent, energy-gathering, instrumental interplay as smatterings of time-setting, exclamatory thuds of backend circling the soaring sear of guitar provides a well-rounded compliment. Meanwhile, Kenny Luu’s vocals slyly slip into the center with a reserved, cool demeanor. However, the songs carry infectious tenderness, integrating the intense ethereal qualities of shoegazing with the rampant immediacy of pop-punk. Tonight, they will be celebrating the release of their self-titled album at Ortlieb’s. With calm yet eruptive vocals, the melodic one-two rumble of duo Honeytiger and the ominous grit of quartet Tiny Vices will be laying down the groundwork for their Philly cohorts. Brooklyn trio Atomic Girl will also deliver a tightly spun contagious rock set that ramps up and appears ready to tear at the seams. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

The Dude Hates Cancer Afterparty w/Lushlife at Boot & Saddle Sept. 24

10 years ago, The Dude Hates Cancer started in Philly as a Big Lebowski-themed fundraiser campaign, bowling tournament, and party that was designed to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Since then, The Dude has extended to New York, Cleveland, and California, managing to raise over half a million dollars for LLS. Dudes will abide when the 10th annual bowling tournament rolls into South Bowl today. However, as soon as the winning team is crowned and people have their fill of the free tater tot bar, people will head over to Boot & Saddle for Jackie Treehorn's After Party that features music from two local mainstays. Ever since he teamed up with CSLSX to release Ritualize, an album that many have dubbed one of the best of 2016 thus far, Lushlife has had a huge year that will hopefully find his name heavily lauded on the national/international level at its conclusion, and it's still not over for him yet with another new mind-altering instrumental EP, No Dead Language (Western Vinyl), headed our way this October 7th. Lushlife will also be joined this evening by the always energetic jazz-funk rock collective Swift TechniqueBoot & Saddle, 1131 S Broad St., 8:30pm, $10 21+ - Bill McThrill
