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.

New Music Video: "Double Dutch" - A Sunny Day in Glasgow & Announce NYE Holiday Run

A Sunny Day in Glasgow's Jen Goma wanted to release the group's track, "Double Dutch," off their latest LP Sea When Absent (Lefse Records), as a single, but the rest of the gang weren't into having a one-minute single. So what did she do? She teamed up with Luisa Conlon (who was her partner in crime for a documentary series entitled The Working Life), and made a music video for one of her favorite songs on the album. You can check it out below, and the band also announced a holiday run of shows that will conclude with a hometown New Year's Eve performance at Boot & Saddle.

Grimace Federation Opening for Why? at Union Transfer Sept. 22

Local post-rock veterans Grimace Federation have certainly gone through many configurations over the years. Long gone are the days of their arrival at live performances as a sextet, lugging around a massive vibraphone, but with their current, more minimalist setup as a trio, the band continues to move forward, experimenting and evolving the group’s sound. This past July, Grimace Federation shared a sample of this progression in “The Measure In Mixture,” from their upcoming LP, and you’ll be able to hear more from it this evening at Union Transfer when they open for the Yoni Wolf-led indie rock outfit Why? and Minneapolis, Minnesota’s Dessa. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden, $16, All Ages - Alexis V.

New Music Video: "Everyone" (Sigel City Feat. The Daddyo's Remix) - Mike Bell & The Movies

Mike Bell & The Movies recently released a full-length maxi-single CD for the track "Everyone," which originally appeared on their record Nothing Works. The new album comes with four remixes by various artists and a live recording of the single as well as live versions of previously recorded and unrecorded songs that were taken from their performance on June 14, 2014 at Self Aware Fest. A standout on their latest LP features a sugary sweet, synth-heavy collaboration between Tulsa, Oklahoma's Sastronaut and The Daddyo's that also came with a music video, which you can view below. The Everyone (Maxi-Single) release is available via Major Bear Records, and can be purchased and streamed HERE. Enjoy!

The Fantastic Imagination Hosting So Cow at Silk City Sept. 21

It seems that the fantastical journey of The Fantastic Imagination might be nearing an end. The band posted on its Facebook page: "Come see us play for the last time in a while." The Fantastic Imagination will be performing this evening at Silk City alongside the siren-esque soundscapes of Myrrias. They'll be hosting a rare appearance by Irish noise-pop crew So Cow. I doubt that you'll find a better place to be this Sunday night. Silk City, 435 Spring Garden St., $7, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
