Read The Deli's SXSW 2016 "PsycheDELIa" issue online! Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar on the cover

Check out the SXSW 2016 issue of The Deli Mag, now available online, and distributed in print next week in Austin during SXSW's Music Week. You'll find copies of it also at our SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space!

Yes, we've done things a little differently this time: we shaped this rag the size of a 7" record, and created a "concept" issue almost entirely dedicated to Psychedelia, with a feature by our editor Brian Chidester about how this musical genre has become more and more influential in the new millennium. The two cover artists, Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar, serve as the two extremes within which Psychedelia has expanded in recent years.

As usual, the issue also gathers:

- A lot of emerging artists (mostly psych this time),
- The winners of The Deli's regional Year End Polls for Emerging Artists,
- The winners of The Deli's Best of 2015 Readers' Polls,
- A section dedicated to the SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space

We hope you enjoy the read and get to know some awesome new music.

Honduras releases 'Gathering Rust' EP and video for 'Hollywood'

Q&A with Yonatan Gat: live at Webster Hall's Studio on 03.11 + at SXSW next week

NYC-by-way-of-Israel guitarist Yonatan Gat performs and records as a power trio. The band's unworldly instrumentals are unleashed live with a rare combination of energy and precision, so much so that the group's performances have garnered a semi-legendary reputation, in particular in the DIY circuit, always welcome to artists that push the creative envelop without giving up punch. This year the band is literally taking over SXSW (list of shows here), but those who are not headed to Austin can catch them live at Webster Hall on March 11.

We asked the Gat are a few thoughts on being a nu-New Yorker and being psychedelic - or something. Read the Q&A with Yanatan Gat here.

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

Drowners unveils 'Cruel Ways' from upcoming LP 'On Desire' + plays SXSW

Indie Pop quartet Drowners, who took NYC by storm a few years ago with their 2012 debut EP and the following self-titled album, just unveiled new single 'Cruel Ways' (streaming), and took the opportunity to announce the release of their sophomore LP "On Desire," out on French Kiss in June. The band will be playing several shows at SXSW this year, culminating in an official showcase at Cheer Up Charlies (900 Red River Street), slated for Saturday, March 19th.

NYC/LA's fuzz rockers Pink Mexico head to SXSW

Brooklyn via LA Pink Mexico plays a gritty brand of fuzz rock, but their airy melodies with psychedelic inflections counteract the harshness of their distorted sound. In 2015, the trio followed up their 2013 self-titled debut album with a two track 7" featuring single "Cigarette Split" (streaming below), a plodding, uber catchy mid tempo that has the sonic power to make you feel under the influence (a cheap high, folks!). This year the band will travel to Austin to play SXSW - the many Austin fans of psychedelic rock (not to mention the hordes of New Yorkers who will be invading that city during Music Week) should check them out .
