fieldtrip releases gorgeous new single, performs at Knitting Factory on 06.30

Field trip delves into the topic of loss in a way that seems to blur the line between experiencing personally and sharing it with others. His newest single “onethousand” starts off with a garbled transmission before settling into a melancholy haze. The layer of guitar effects and twinkling bells provides a backdrop similar in tone to those found on King Krule’s last album, yet the grooves on this single have a greater sway and the vocals are brighter. Lyrics like “what should I do, what do I do, look at you, look at me” brightly gleam before quickly shedding any sense of coolness and quickly become a call for help. Its a song that sounds lost in the neon smoke of city life, and its quiet attempts at human connection are deeply affecting, both working as a shared experience and something that needs to be listened privately. You can stream “onethousand” below and see field trip perform at Knitting Factory on June 30. -Tucker Pennington





Weekend Warrior, June 29 - July 1

Tonight, Everybody Hits hosts Weller celebrating their self-titled debut album, which is being re-issued today via Tiny Engines. Composed succinct melodies envelop in a relaxed revealing jangle. Holding a place of comfort by lyrically unlatching the inner-workings, there’s a continuous desire to find one’s footing and/or fit in the world at large. That ongoing existential search may never truly end, rather just morph, but the ongoing evaluation is one which can be viewed as a self-portrait that many others can see themselves in. Currently in the midst of a run of dates with Animal Flag and with a new album in the works, The Obsessives help fortify this lineup, which also includes the soothing, shoegazing darkness of So Totally and the intricately-woven, experimental folk of The Human Fly. – Michael Colavita

A Deli Premiere: Wax Statues' psychedelic single "Stranger"

Bay Area natives Wax Statues make music for sitting back, hanging out and not thinking too hard about it — that is, until you take about one second to listen to the lyrics. Their newest single “Stranger” off the forthcoming debut LP Exclusive / Reclusive begins with the eerie line “There’s something inside / crawling through our space.” The integration of psychedelic twinges into a jangle-rock foundation create a compelling, yet easy-listening experience — reminiscent of a West Coast reincarnation of Dr. Dog. - Lilly Milman

Listen to an exclusive premiere of “Stranger” below.





New GrandeMarshall EP Available for Streaming

Philly emcee GrandeMarshall recently added a new EP to the equation. Self-produced (excluding tracks “One Step Away” and “Buyer’s Remorse,” which were co-produced with Scanz), In Good Spirit maintains a lyric forward introspection. The beats roll with a smooth simplicity, affording concise flows room to run. It’s laidback, exuding a cool confidence. Feel free to give it a spin below. (Photo by Cones)





New Track: "Retirement Meat" - Heavy Medical

Distortion and percussion merge, cracking open “Retirement Meat,” a new song from Heavy Medical. That anxious aggression sends shards of sonics at you from abrupt angles. Rumbling through in a jarring, heavy gut-punch, the track shakes the foundation. It's a heart-pounding jolt that asks for time alone. "Retirement Meat" appears to be off the band's upcoming album, which is titled Problems.
