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.

“Real Halloween Party” at Toby’s Purgatory Oct. 31

It’s gonna be a punk Halloween tonight at Toby’s Purgatory, featuring locals only that represent a variety of sounds from the genre in the city. Adding a refreshing female voice to the scene is Cool Points’ Jill Mallon. She leads the noise-rock crew with a straightforward sass and aggression that will charm your pants off, but she’s definitely “not your bro”! Cool Points will be joined by headliners Mumblr, who are pulling double duty, warming up earlier in the night at TJ Kong’s Halloween Murder Show. You’ll also find antagonistic punks Cousin Brian stirring up trouble while we patiently wait for the follow-up to their debut LP First. Rounding out the bill will be hardcore outfit Disinterest and pop-punkers Cold Foamers. Get sweaty, and celebrate at the “Real Halloween Party” the right way - fast and loud. Toby’s Purgatory, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 6pm, All Ages - Emily DiCicco

New Track: "Young Planes" - Church Girls

Fledgling indie/folk rock outfit Church Girls takes a turn in an edgier direction in the vein of Courtney Barnett on the band's new track "Young Planes," which we highly encourage the group to push further. Led by Mariel Beaumont and Evan Anders, the five-piece tackle the growing pains that most of us eventually end up going through with age, while Beaumont's speak-singing verses play the standout roll in the song. They'll be performing next in Philly on Monday, November 3 at The Arts Bank Cabaret.
