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 Seattle’s Album of the Month: Holy Trinity - King Dude

The raw inspirations that TJ Cowgill, a.k.a. King Dude, draws on for his new 7” Holy Trinity showcases the artist’s dark rockabilly-structured roots and all the while still focusing on more of a heavy folk take on the horror genre that we expect from him. Songs like the album’s opener “Please Stay (In The Shadow Of My Grave)” have a very grim mood, which throws a nod back to his days in black metal outfit Black Earth. It all makes sense after all, because these songs are from the earlier days of Cowgill’s career. The old tunes sound great with the new mix, especially juxtaposed next to his previous release Burning Daylight. The EP was recorded with the members of his new band adding some background feed and percussion, and in the end, it makes for an exceptionally well-rounded sound with welcomed extra reverb. Standout track “Don’t Want Me Still” really shines through with its Bowie-esque vocals, possessing a mournful tone with a speck of hope, as it tramples through the graveyard all the while looking for its meaning. The album is a really nice collection of tracks from Cowgill that are more forgiving in the sense that it is meant to revel in the horrorbilly realm, but relies more on structure and less on despair. It provides fans with a new take on their old favorites and new fans with a foundation into King Dude’s signature shadowy sound, produced without the gimmicks that are usually found throughout the genre. - John Clements
