Deli Readers,

I know, it seems like we put our latest issue out just the other day - but no, we haven't switched to monthly. It's just that the fall in NYC is a busy time for us, and with CMJ week and our NYC Synth Expo (linked to BEMF) coming up, there's a lot to write about.

Here's our 44th issue of The Deli NYC (one of our finest!). Check out cover band Stolen Jars, they'll be performing at one of the (several) Deli CMJ 2015 shows!

Musicians in The Deli World (i.e. the 12 local US scenes we cover - list here),

Once again, The Deli will give some emerging bands and artists the opportunity to play at one of its CMJ 2015 Music Marathon showcases.

This year we have booked a bunch of shows in the Lower East Side (Pianos on Friday night and Rockwood on Wednesday!) and Williamsburg (The Living Room on Saturday and Muchmore's on Thursday!), and - as usual - we'll have several stages for different musical genres.

We are looking to book 3 or more artists for these shows through this submissions system.

To be considered, all you need to do is to apply HERE - good luck!

Submission deadline: August 15, 2015.

It's getting there folks, our patience will soon be rewarded by a sun that's actually warm and a breeze that's actually enjoyable! OK, we aren't there quite yet, but we'll all have an opportunity to actually experience these summery feelings at Paperwhite's show tonight at Baby's All Right. Sister and brother Katie and Ben Marshall (recently featured on Spin as one of the 22 bands to see at SXSW) create electronic pop that has the power to "emanate" summer (or something). Not the unbearably sticky NYC one by the way, but the sublime summers we remember as half dreams from our teen years. Play this, or single "Magic" (streaming below) and you'll realize what we are talking about. Tonight they'll be playing the Indie Shuffle showcase, sharing the stage with Maxo, Moon Bounce and Novelty Daughter.

We were curious to see Brooklyn garage rockers Heeney in action again, after they placed 8th in our Best of NYC Poll for emerging artists, and we caught in them in Austin at Lambert's BBQ during the SESAC SXSW last Wednesday. They produced an impressively tight, powerful and fun show. Mark Fletcher, Max Kagan and Scott Andrews alternated at the lead vocals and backing vocals, but this didn't affect the uniformity of their grunge influenced punk rock. The band recently unveiled this one-shot video for single "In the Mind," and will be back in NYC with two upcoming shows at Aviv on March 27 and at The Studio on April 11.
