From The Deli's Open Blog: Galaxy of Tar release debut CD

Galaxy of Tar's Naima Mora has a face you've seen before - she won "America's Next Top Model" in 2005 and went on to to be the CoverGirl contract model - but it's high time for her to be heard and not just seen. Filling her role as front-woman with passion and dynamism, her voice soars skyward over the Latin-esque poly-rhythms and churning riffage of drummer/sonic-architect, Elias Diaz V.'s Volatile Glass, the latest free release from Lapdance Academy. Borrowing equally from Diaz's Dominican roots and the industrial pulse of Brooklyn's transit system, GALAXY OF TAR have created a unique sonic space between SANTANA'S "Abraxas" and TOOL'S "Lateralus." Rounded out by the torn, metallic shards of Nemanja Rebic's guitars and the deep pockets of Samuel Fernandez's bass lines, "Volatile Glass", the band's debut album, is available for streaming preview and free download in 256 and 320 bit-rates here. The band's next live show in NYC will be at Commodore Barry Park on June 27. - (as posted in The Deli's Open Blog - post your band's entries, videos, and Mp3s here).



Secret Colours

Is psychedelic rock the next big sound in Chicago? Well, bands like Panda Riot, Apteka, and others seem to think so. Enter Secret Colours, and yes despite the “strange” spelling of colors they are from Chicago. Their self-titled debut album is beautifully retro in sound and style, and embraces the psych rock sound open arms and sensitive ears. From hazy drug trips to love songs to even fuzzed “Western” sounds. My favorite track from the album, which can be streamed on bandcamp, has to be the wandering and pop-filled “Jellybean”. It puts the listener in fun-filled summertime dream state.

Tommy Evans, Dave Stach, Dylan Olson, Justin Frederick, and Margaret Albright make up the band Secret Colours, and they will be celebrating the release of their album at Lincoln Hall tomorrow, June 11th with Gold Motel and Mini Mansions.


Say Wassup in 3-D

I guess 3-D music videos are the big thing right now. Here is the latest video from Rhymefest. The video features Phonte and was directed again by Konee Rok. The track comes from El Che which was finally (and I mean finally) released this week.


The Fleeting Ends Don’t Have Split Ends at M Room June 10

The lamenting, textured indie rockers The Fleeting Ends are performing tonight at the M Room. Apparently battle of the bands are still relevant/hip/in existence(?), and these guys recently won one which has been getting them some more airtime on local stations. They are also hitting the local festival circuit this summer making stops at Philly Folk Fest and Bethlehem Musikfest (hehe - headliners include Lynyrd Skynyrd and Styx). Their songs wallow in jagged guitars and yearning vocals that reach wavering tenor notes and brooding baritones the likes of The Smiths. They float comfortably in the sea of retro that is consuming the Philly scene. We’ll see how that goes. M Room, 15 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $8, 21+ - Adam G.
