Dead Native
"Dead Native

Dead Native's self-titled sophomore album has an overall cosmic feel starting with the cover but building through out in the sound. The band blends echoing elements of psych rock, shoegaze, mototik, and pop. There is also a blues under current, but it is toned down from their 2013 debut, Keep It Strange". The adventure on the new album builds through out the tracks, but the most effective cosmic track has to be "Traveling". The 9 minute epic space journey seems built to put anyone into orbit. It is followed up by the one of the heavier tracks, "Clean Kill", that trudges through muddy fields of throbbing guitars. The album closes with an anthemic flourish with "Respite" with all instruments soaring to a close. This may or may not be a concept album, but it does truly feel like a complete listen that was meant to be played track by track. Dead Native's new album will be released on Sept. 2nd.

This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Wildlife Control: Album Release Party This Friday @ Bottom Of The Hill

If you’ve been paying attention to music and San Francisco happenings, you probably caught Wildlife Control’s video for “Analog or Digital” that they filmed on Ocean Beach a few months back.

Though usually split between Brooklyn and SF, the brother duo behind Wildlife Control, Neil and Sumul Shah, will be together on the best coast to play at Bottom of The Hill for this Friday. They’ll be celebrating the release of their eponymous indie pop album debut and will be joined by Mercies and East Bay lads, The Dandelion War.
