The Nightowls Debut Music Video For "#selfieQueen"

Bursting onto the scene in 2014 with a debut album, the Nightowls have had a ubiquitous presence in the Austin scene for the last four years, consistently playing shows for a loyal and growing group of fans. The soul and R&B connoisseurs dropped their latest album, We Are The Nightowls, on April 27th but we are debuting their new music video "#selfiequeen", which happens to be as magenetic as their raucous live shows. Lead singer of the ten-piece, Ryan Harkrider, explains the video: "We wrote #selfiequeen in response to this funny trend we've noticed at our live shows where fans will turn their backs to us and get their phone out to take selfie with the band in the background. It’s an odd scene from our perspective and we just wanted song that welcomed this and could turn it into something we could all enjoy together." The Nightowl's latest album was two years in the making and, a video like "#selfiequeen", which was shot live at EAR studios by Jeff Ray, is a perfect window into the charismatic live performances that have made the band popular.

Bodega is on the cover of the 54th issue of The Deli NYC!

If there's a turn of phrase we kind of detest here at The Deli is "taking the scene by storm." It's one of those generic prefab sentences that ring insincere. But then again, sometimes, some bands do that - kind of rare, but it happens, right? And sometimes, on a hot day like today, being lazy is kind of inevitable. So... yes! Brooklyn's Bodega are taking the NYC scene by storm with their blend of post-punk and pop and their super-fun live shows. That, and their somewhat familiar name, are the main reasons why they are on the cover of the new, spring 2018 issue of The Deli! 

The issue, our 54th NYC one, is now up online and you can read it here.

It's an issue linked to the biggest event for musicians we've ever organized, which will host a Stompbox Exhibit, a Synth Expo and a Vintage Guitar Exchange in a Bushwick art gallery called Absurd Conclave - hope to see you there!

Whiite Walls Continue to Lavish Austin with Disco Vibes


Whiite Walls brings a tropical and infectious energy that illuminates any stage they perform on. A familiar presence in Austin for the last five years, the quintet still command a loyal following, despite a dearth of new music releases. The retro-funk group focuses on their singular goal of fomenting dance parties, but their influences point to Chic, Sister Sledge, and the Parliament. Lead guitarist and vocalist, Brent Dobey, orchestrates a deft symphony of tempo changes and choral explosions that can't help but leave listeners in a trance. Keep an eye on these funketeers as they continue to spread their charm throughout Austin's dance floors.

TC Superstar Ignite Dance Party With New EP 'Heat Death'


Unapologetically 80's with their synth beats and new wave vocals, TC Superstar is motivated to get Austin moving by igniting an off-beat fire on the dance floor. Started as a solo project by Connor McCampbell in the Summer of 2017, TC Superstar has grown into a six-piece live performing band.  TC Superstar's first album, Masc, was released in September 2017 through Austin-based Porch Fire Records but it's their latest EP 'Heat Death' that has massive electro-potential. McCampbell's deep baritone floats over pulsating dance-centric beats that slowly become fortified with a chorus of radiant synths.  The confidence ingrained in the music and the musician's zeal for live performances make TC Superstar a hot attraction whenever found on a music bill. While retro vibes are evident with Talking Heads and Thompson Twins coming through quite clearly, McCampbell also channels contemporary dream pop like Chairlift and Austra in his songwriting.  Young, talented and ambitious - keep an eye out for TC Superstar.
