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.

The Deli Philly's 6th Anniversary/Halloween Party on Sat., Oct. 25 at PhilaMOCA w/Grimace Federation & S.T.S.!!!

So the most important thing to know for the next week or so is that The Deli Philly will be celebrating its 6th Anniversary/Halloween Party on Saturday, October 25 at PhilaMOCA so we'll just pin it atop this page as reminder for you because we're victims of this damn ADHD generation as well. We're excited to be returning to one of our favorite spaces in Philly with a co-headlining bill where you'll find the likes of a true rising star in the local hip-hop community and obvouisly one of our favorites, S.T.S., a.k.a. Sugar Tongue Slim, who will be joined by the nasty beats and mind-warping sounds of our old friends, Grimace Federation. It's definitely going be a rad night of music in the ole mausoleum! And don't forget your costume because it's also our Halloween bash, and we didn't forget the drinks. We'd like to thank the good folks at Sixpoint Brewery, Star Hill Brewery, Balantine IPA, Narragansett, and La Colombe (Different Drum Pennsylvania Rum & cold-brew Pure Black) for sponsoring the fun. I think that you can tell where we'll be taking things. Come join the debauchery!

New Track: "Undertow" - DRGN King

With their new album Baltimore Crush due out on October 28 via Bar None Records, DRGN King just premiered the single “Undertow” over at Pancakes and Whiskey. The steady thudding basslines and casual vocals provide a calming atmosphere before shifting into higher gear, allowing the instruments and vocals to open up. The song finishes in a decidedly different place from where it started - much like the latest incarnation of the DRGN King project.

Ecstatic Vision Opening for Creepoid at Underground Arts Oct. 23

If the idea of heart-pounding, trance-inducing, raucous rock that temporarily encases listeners in an alternative sonic dimension is the remedy you’ve been looking for, Ecstatic Vision is serving it up at Underground Arts tonight. The band recently signed to Relapse Records, and has plans for releasing its debut early next year. With extended, heavy vibes filled with sweaty fuzzed guitars, relentless backend and scorcher-inspired vocals, be prepared to be sucked in. However, you’ll want to be at UA all night anyway with a lineup that includes the soothing cosmic navigation of neo-psych outfit Drone Ranger, whom are consistently changing speeds as they traverse farther out. Then, there’s Ruby The Hatchet, whose rough-edge 70’s hard rock sound, isn’t so much a throw back but rather a timeless tradition with its interlocked thick, rolling groove and guitar lines that take that step ahead, letting the flames emerge bigger, all while Jillian Taylor’s vocals provide a calming fervor. All this will set the stage for the earthy noise-rock of Creepoid that seeps into your pores and finds a home there. Underground Arts, 1200 Callowhill St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


New Track: "Face" - Psychic Teens

We're excited to share a new track with you from Psychic Teens. It certainly has been a while since we've heard from the post-punk power trio, and "Face" doesn't disappoint with its combustible guitar licks and Larry Ragone's ominously macabre diction. The single is the A-side to the forthcoming 7" that the group will drop on November 7 via Reptilian Records. They'll also have a big release show that same evening at Boot & Saddle with legendary hardcore outfit F.O.D., a.k.a. Flag of Democracy, and Hound, who will also be celebrating their new album with SRA Records.
