A Deli Premiere: "More or Less" by AOTM Monkeys of a Bygone Era

Congratulations are in order for the punchy indie rock three-piece Monkeys of a Bygone Era — the Deli New England’s newest Artist of the Month. Led by Jason Zavala, the quirky group specializes in creating bouncy and infectious jangle rock with a twist and we can’t get enough. Their most recent endeavor is a 3D animated video for the track “More and Less” which, according to the band, “was conceived around the idea of ‘less is more’ being a challenging aspiration to maintain in a world where everyone wants more.” - Lilly Milman, photo by Tim Oxton

Check out an exclusive premiere of the song and accompanying video below.

   

Enter Sean Rubin's avant-folk world on debut LP "everybody shares a name"

You may recognize the name Sean Rubin from his old project Ladyhips, a Deli New England Artist of the Month dating back to 2012, but if you haven’t heard of his solo project then it’s time to catch up. Rubin recently released his debut album everybody shares a name, an avant-folk project that finds a surprising comfort in the dissonance, asking difficult questions and accepting the fact that there isn’t always an answer. It’s striking for its lack of conventionality; this project takes risks, but it’s still easy to listen to for those willing to enter Sean Rubin’s weird and intricate world. Take the leap with us, and stream our favorite track “old birds” below. - Lilly Milman

   

Maxwell Bailey releases live EP & heads to Noise Floor Sessions at Aeronaut Allston (7.18)

When Boston-based singer-songwriter Maxwell Bailey decided to record his EP, he kept it simple. Featuring only his own solo vocals and guitar playing, the In Between live EP is a bare bones tribute to storytelling. It combines a raw performance with relatable lyrics, resulting in a record that’s easy to listen to and even better to dive into. Primarily a live performer, Bailey thrives in the spontaneity of this project, having recorded the entire record in one day at an Airbnb. He will be playing at the Noise Floor Sessions at Aeronaut Allston on July 18. - Lilly Milman
