August 2014
Dead Native
"Dead Native
"
mp3

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.

Grace London Plays Austin Deli’s Well-Being for Women Showcase This Saturday, January 18th at Spider House Ballroom.

Grace London is a 14 year old singer, songwriter, guitar player and foot stomper. The Austin native writes witty lyrics reminiscent of Kate Nash and sings with drama: incorporating repetition, breathing and warbling into her delivery, like a young Merrill Garbus. London released her debut EP, Rocketship Girl, in 2012 to much acclaim (including landing a slot at 2013's Austin City Limits Music Festival and official showcase at the 2013 & 2014 SXSW Music Festival), and plans to release a full-length in the spring of 2014. 

London not only has a big voice, but a generous heart. Since 2010, the singer has used her music to raise money for causes including the GLSEN - National Safe Schools Program, and A Glimmer of Hope Foundation, to aid relief efforts in Ethiopia. This Saturday, January 18th, London sings out for women's causes as she performs at the Austin Deli's Well-Being for Women Showcase at Spider House Ballroom. Check out this talented young star and learn about issues affecting the women and youth in our city this Saturday. --Written by Gillian Driscoll

Featherface Releases New Single, "Ourselves Together"

With a little help from Converse Rubber Tracks, Featherface has recently released an amazing studio track to 7” vinyl. "Ourselves Together" opens with an eerie soundtrack feel, but the piano driven tune quickly evolves into a sweet sounding psych pop song adorned with beautiful harmonies. Brush back all that beautiful hair in this Houston band to reveal a carefully calculated effort at an epic new single. Then, head out to Empire Control Room on February 6th, 2014 to see them with Ghostbunny and The Sun Machine. --Written by Jodi Lang
