Psych





Weekend Warrior, April 28 - 30

There is way too much going on this weekend in Philly, and it looks like the weather is going to be fan-fuckin-tastic! So what’s on our agenda? Psych outfit The Spirit of the Beehive have been on an extensive tour of the U.S. for the past month and a half, bringing the wonderful weirdness of their LP Pleasure Suck (Tiny Engines) to the masses. They’ll be returning home this evening to finally celebrate the record’s release among friends at Everybody Hits, where they’ll be supported by Three Man Cannon, YT, and Old Maybe. Laser Background will also be holding an album release party of their own for Dark Nuclear Bogs this Saturday night with good pals Norwegian Arms, Breathers, and YCIB at Baird Mansion Atrium.

Get Better Fest 4 will be taking place over the weekend at the First Unitarian and PhilaMOCA, as well as Glitter Galaxy. The two-day event taps the talented and socially conscious Philly punk community to raise donations this year for the Trans Assistance Project, Youth Emergency Service, and Women Against Abuse. At the showcase, you’ll find Deli faves +HIRS+, Thin Lips, Radiator Hospital, Amanda X, Soul Glo and many more (view the full lineup HERE) raging out for good causes. And of course, there is the NFL Draft going on at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway, and besides seeing some future NFL millionaires, you’ll be treated to performances from rising stars in the local music community such as Strand of Oaks, The Districts, Tunji Ige, Chill Moody, and Good Old War. So get out, and take advantage of living in such a rad city! - Alexis V.

Color Tongue play The Knit on May 4 + talk about gear on Delicious Audio

Color Tongue is a spacey, indie-psych rock band hailing from Brooklyn. Their latest release, Sprouts, is 8 tracks of inventive, sometimes atmospheric tracks, that while feeling expansive, ground itself with both its fun and infectious qualities. With such a myriad of different sounds coming from their latest record, we were curious to hear the band talk a little about their creative process, and of course, their gear, check out this interview on Delicious Audio. Don't miss them live at The Knit on May 4th!

Also! Here's a list of the band's favorite emerging NYC bands!!! 





Deli Premiere: Garage rockers, God Tiny drop new single "Cosmos"

For those out there searching for an artist that perfectly balances the sounds of garage and psych while proudly wearing a strong blues influence on their sleeves, Brooklyn-based five-piece, God Tiny, might be exactly what the doctor ordered (think Blue Cheer but with a more friendly, modern facelift). We here at the Deli are excited to premiere the band's latest single: "Cosmos." The track lays down grooves chock full of fuzzy garage goodness, but also offers bluesy riffs that hit like a sledgehammer (stream it below). Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for The Space Inside Your Head, the band's new album out 5/26, and catch the band live the same day at the Knitting Factory alongside Stuyedeyed, Ghost King, and Greasy Hearts. - Olivia Sisinni  

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best alto rock songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!

Damn Jackals celebrate EP release at Mercury tonight (04.28)

Jackals have the reputation for being sly, wild, and dangerous, so it's fitting that a Brooklyn-based noisy, garage-punk quintet would steal their name. With vocals that snarl, beats that kick and a delrious mashing of psych and punk aesthetics Damn Jackals deliver the type of garage rock that riles up crowds. On the band's latest video for new single "Stop N' Cop," singer/guitarists Beau Croxton croons his way through a surprisingly smooth melodic hook and growls through the verses with the blitzed-out filter of an am radio. This, accompanied by blistering instrumentals and visuals that reflect the playfulness of the band, make "Stop N' Cop," a track you don't want to sleep on. Keep your eyes peeled for the band's new EP "That's It" out tomorrow 4/28, and catch them live tonight at the Mercury Lounge. - Olivia Sisinni, Photo credit: Will Foster





GRAZER - DOOM-JAM ROCK

Grazer is a pyschadelic heavy soul band. Sounds intense. They have a trippy EP out there right now titled "Pachyderm". The title track kicks it off with a deep, dragging guitar lick. It's tone is mesmerizing. The tune takes a turn about 2 and a half minutes in when they fire it up and the drummer gets excited. How bout some dual guitar solos? Done. Funk bass licks? Done. The vocals sound like something from the late 80's/early 90's phase that was in between hair metal and grunge. This epic 7 plus minute tune will keep you guessing. If you wanna hear some doom-jam rock then Grazer is your band. - Kris Gies
