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.

Sorority Noise to bring the commotion to Amherst

Riding on the release of May's Forgettable LP, Hartford's Sorority Noise is heading to Amherst, MA, next Monday, August 18. Fitting to its name, the band’s lyrics span the insecurities of college life – take, for example, “When we broke up you told me to try and find myself … so I found myself in someone else's bed,” from “Dirty Ickes” – but the band’s groovy punk inspires one to dance through the darkness rather than sulk alone. Check out Sorority Noise in Massachusetts’ most famous college town alongside Three Man Cannon, Sexy Girls, The Hundred Acre Woods and Amherst folk-punks Dérive at Amherst's Unitarian Meeting House at 7 p.m. on August 18. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)


THE DELI TORONTO IS ON!

Ladies and Gentlemen,

today's the day when The Deli goes international, eh! Please allow us to introduce you to... The Deli Toronto!


Grand Cousin celebrates at once farewell and release show at Arlene's (07.27)

“Bands are unstable molecules, bands don’t want to be bands, they want to fly apart. There’s always tension; I think a lot of that’s where the music comes from." You can find these words in the Mishka Shubali feature on our recent Ten Year Anniversary issue, and they certainly hit the nail on the head when applied to CT/NYC based indie pop band Grand Cousin, who find themselves in the peculiar position of celebrating - on the same night - an EP release show and a farewell party. The trio plays an intense brand of pop with folk tinges that's partly reminiscent of Jeff Buckley. Check out the recent video for single 'Oxygen' and - if you dig - enjoy the band's last show at Arlene's on 07.27

CT Punks Jagged Dream Chronicle release

The low-key, Connecticut based, punk rock outfit headed by Gregory Wharmby called Jagged Dream Chronicle has hardly any social media presence. But one thing's for sure, they do know how to play some good punk rock. They kind of sound like if AFI were to grow up in the New York Hardcore (NYHC) scene. Listen to the track titled "Horselover Fat" via Soundcloud and hear for yourself. The track appears on the upcoming LP 'Horns Of Ormus' that was just released last week (and can't be embedded!).  - Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
