July 2015
Negative Scanner
"Negative Scanner
"
mp3

Formed in 2012 by lead singer and guitarist Rebecca Valeriano-Flores, Negative Scanner, is modern take on dark late '70's punk. Last year the band release two singles, but on their self-titled debut LP they carve out fierce sound steeped in plotting guitar and powerful lyrics. The album launches with the forceful "Ivy League" which find Flores falling somewhere between early Siouxsie Sioux and Johnny Rotten. It's magnetic and repulsive all at once.The entire album is relentless, clocking under 30 minutes, but pounds the listener with blissful aggression with every note. The highlight of the album has to be the lead single, "Would You Rather", which paints a picture of the sluggish journey we all seem to be on at times. Negative Scanner's self-titled debut album was released by Trouble In Mind Records on July 10th.


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

Poll Nominee Hola Beach

When considering shows to check out it’s always important to keep in mind that Austin is a college town, and that there are scores of musical kids plugging in and making music. Really, hitting the student scene is one of the best ways to get your post-punk kick. One of its bands catching buzz lately there and on our poll is shoegaze quartet Hola Beach

The shoegaze quartet has just churned out a new EP, so check out the first track below. You can see them live at Spiderhouse Ballroom on the 19th, with Casual Strangers and Blackstone Rngrs. -Written by Marie Meyers

Cory Kendrix is one of our nominees for the artist of the month (you’ll find the poll just to the right!). The Austin based hip-hop artist is among the ranks of several other talented Texans as part of the LNS Crew

On his list of influences: The Fugees, Nirvana, Tupac, and Frank Sinatra. You can be sure that Kendrix’s focus is moving hip hop into the future from a solid home-base of musical sensibilities.

Megafauna's Roaring New Album

Megafauna have been busy lately gaining speed. They've had a long string dynamic live shows, and the trio’s forthcoming album, Maximalist, has the right amount of grit and whip-quick guitar work from front woman Dani Neff to fill the slick 37-minute run time to the brim. Want a preview? Check out the album’s dynamic first single, “Haunted Factory”. I don't see Megafauna slowing down anytime soon, and I hope to God they won't. 
You can get Maximalist on the 15th, but the album’s official release is part of the bill for the 101X Homegrown Live show, April 19th at The Mohawk. The all-ages event will serve as a benefit show for SXSW Cares and will also feature UME, Black Books, and Young Tongue. –Written by Marie Meyers

New Flavor Raid Single

If you’re looking to dance, look no further than Flavor Raid. The Austin duo deliver hard thumping tracks with catchy and clever lyrics that guarantee a good time, be it out on the dance floor or at a house party.

While the synth beats definitely appeal to EDM ears, the Austin duo has way more going on than your typical EDM artist. Combining samples, vocals and instruments like trumpet and bass, Flavor Raid has a style that’s all their own.

Check out their recently released single “Dreams We Never Had” and be sure not to miss their next gig. If you’re looking to rage, Flavor Raid won’t let you down. -Written by Gillian Driscoll
