Toronto's FRIGS on the cover of Austin 2018 issue of The Deli

Deliriously rocking beings,

Once a year, The Deli publishes an issue of The Deli that is NOT exclusively focused on NYC acts, but on artists based in all the 11 scenes we cover. That time of the year is now, an that issue is the 8th Austin issue of The Deli, which you can now read online here. The print version of it, in its glorious 7 inch format, will be available in print next week in Austin and in NYC shortly thereafter.

On the mag's cover you'll find Toronto's noise rockers FRIGS, whose debut album Basic Behaviour has been rocking our world in the last few weeks.

The issue features other incredible emerging artists, including hip hop genius Nnamdi Ogbonnya, talented goofball popper Caroline Rose, and Los Angeles' alt-rockers The Beaches among others - you can listen to all of them in the YouTube playlist below.

Also in the issue, an article entitled "Will Rock Explode Again?" which poses pognant questions about the future of rock'n'roll.

As usual, in the final pages you'll find a section focused on the guitar pedals and synths involved in our Austin Stompbox and Synth Expo, scheduled for March 16/17 at the Chuggin' Monkey in Downtown Austin!

Sángo Drops New Short Film "South End"

 Of all the places in the Pacific Northwest, Seattle finds itself home to great producers and hip-hop. One of the main proprietors of such is Sángo, who has been making some of the funkiest beats for almost two decades. He's got a whole new album's worth of tracks coming to us, titled In the Comfort Of, but in the meantime, he's dropped a different type of art piece - a short film.

Set to the tune of "One More Thing," one of the songs off of In the Comfort Of, South End is a home-based project, artistically looking at the youth living in South End, Seattle. The film is centered around how everyone needs to do what they can to protect the youth out there from any harm.

"They have a future ahead of them, and it's important we highlight that," says Sángo. "We have to make sure we uplift them, even when they don't want to accept the reality of growing up. South End forever."

Watch South End below, and keep an ear out for In the Comfort Of.

Mood Music: The Gods Themselves - "Marilyn Monroe"

Of the numerous subsects of punk music, art and dance punk have got to be some of the more fun and fashionably viable for those that choose dapperness over chaos. And though dance punk had a much bigger moment in time earlier in the 2000s, The Gods Themselves rock the genre like nobody's business. Their incredibly catchy tunes and pristine glam style have landed them on more than just the musical stage, but on tv screens as well. 

Their show with Cindy Wilson of The B-52's wasn't that long ago, they've also been featured on Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, showing off their utter charm as individuals and their chemistry as a unit. 

Get into one of their latest tracks "Marilyn Monroe" below, and be sure to catch their next show on 3.02 with Motopony and Hotels at the Tractor Tavern.
