Stream The Gloomies' groovingly recollective "Sideways"

Memories have a way of shifting and transfiguring the past, creating picture shows in the mind that, while fictionalized, are still “based on a true story.” Such mental Kodaks inform the track “Sideways” by NYC-based the Gloomies, a collection of acid-bathed footnotes, rife with recollections of black lights and clear perfumes. It’s a fitting tune given the Gloomies’ recent relocation to Brooklyn from Southern California that the first single from the project's forthcoming LP Romance would be a psych-pop yarn from their last summer; crunchy vox and meandering guitars abound on this track, placing it squarely between the sounds of artists like Ariel Pink and the thematic overtones of Thomas Pynchon’s Inherent Vice. Listen to this tastefully far-out track below. —Connor Beckett McInerney

   

A Deli Premiere: "Align" by Mike Morrissey

Somerville’s Mike Morrissey is back at it with a breezy single that will kick off your weekend, and year, splendidly. Truthfully, here at the deli, we must confess we are big fans of what Morrissey brings to the deep pool of talent that resides in the city northwest of Boston he calls home: the artist has a quiet confidence about him that shines through his alternating indie-rock/indie-folk/Americana styles. In the Grant Bloom co-produced “Align,” Mike is playing with the latter style as he allows the song to brew, giving time to each acoustic guitar strum, each water-drop synth embellishment, each subterranean-like bass bump; Mike’s unaltered and tranquil vocals complete the portrait worth admiring. “Align” is a snapshot of a moment in time, brief in conception perhaps but lasting in memory; the song is a fragment to hold on to, and its tune rings clear to all who have ever stopped to remember a good time, a good person. You can catch Mike performing inside the Canopy Room of Bow Market on January 26th or visit the Aeronaut Brewing Company, where he hosts a monthly open mic, on February 5th. The track was mastered by Luke Sullivan and the bright artwork is by Belinda Riggs. We are delighted to premiere Mike’s single here for you; that alto saxophone by Callum Mackenzie at the start of the song is buttery smooth. - Rene Cobar
