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 Spyrals and Burnt Ones Support Christian Bland and the Revelators at Brick and Mortar TONIGHT

San Francisco based underground staple psych band, The Spyrals along with the local experimental alt band, BURNT ONES will be supporting Austin, Texas' Christian Bland & The Revelators TONIGHT at Brick and Mortar Music Hall.

In case you didn't know, Christian Bland is the guitarist of the ultra successful neo psychedelic band, The Black Angels...so that's incentive for you to show up right there. Nonetheless, Bland has a poignant style of his own and you should definitely come experience one of the most influential musicians of the current underground era.

Let us not forget that The Spyrals and BURNT ONES are no slouches of themselves. They are both really strong live bands and they will compliment Bland's sound well. It's going to be a great show. We'll be there!

A Deli premiere: Crushed Out's "Two Lovebirds" video

We can't think of anything better, for a musician, than finding a like-minded band mate that ends up becoming also a lover - or vice versa. That's he idyllic situation Brooklyn duo Crushed Out is in, which brought to life their new album 'TEETH.' presented by the the band as an "ode to all the potential energy wrapped up in life, in the ocean, and in love." Often described as a surf pop duo, in the new record Crushed Out seems to shifts its inspiration towards the roots of American music, filtered through the songwriting lens of guitarist/vocalist Franklin Russell Hoier. Here's what the couple has to say about the video we are premiering below: "Two Lovebirds is a song for all you outlaw lovers. Sometimes you have to be a rebel and an outlaw to love the way you wanna love. We wrote it with the underdog feeling of being two small birds in a big bad world, yet your love for each other is a secret super power."

Crushed Out is currently on an intensive US tour that will last until early December.
