Parrot Dream celebrate LP release at Union Pool on 08.24

Parrot Dream’s debut album Light Goes is full of emotionally wrought dream-pop that unfolds in small yet powerful moments. The crystalline guitars and subtle synthesizers offer up shimmering tunes that balance sobering reality with fully realized dreamscapes. The equilibrium they’ve struck between these ideals comes through fully realized with songs like “Ode To Octavia”, where the group isn’t afraid to add a little grit to their sparkling sound. The band will celebrate the album release on August 24 with a show at Union Pool. –Tucker Pennington

New Inside Voices Demo EP Available for Streaming

An air of strange saturates in the new four-song demo from Inside Voices. Steered by the omnipresent push of percussion and the commander-control, dispensed vocals in a space-station setting, an over-arching intensity hangs in the atmosphere - one that lies dormant and then is realized in switch-flipping, musical reactions that tip the scales. It's a gradual swell of heaviness that asserts its stake on a shoegazing headspace.





Curling release LP 'Definitely Band' & embark on summer tour

The sophomore LP by Berkeley band Curling, entitled Definitely Band, is a feel-good frenzy of jangly shoegaze rock. This release — a mix of Beatlesque melodies that blow up and pop like bubble gum and fervently executed guitar riffs that make your heart jitter — is entirely their own. The second track on the album, “Flutter” (streaming below), genuinely brings about a thrilling frission, even on your tenth or eleventh spin of the track. Curling have outdone themselves this time. They will be playing at The Down & Out in L.A. on August 16, and then kicking off a summer tour the following day. - Lilly Milman





Kaleidoscope Horse - Theatrical Dream Pysch Band release new single "Behaviour"

Theatrical dream-psych band Kaleidoscope Horse have released a new epic video for their track “Behaviour”. Produced by Brandon Bak and Tobin Hopwood (from Possum) with cinematography by Slone Mcgowan; this video is filled with unusual characters, a mesmerizing space age pysch-rock song and an overall calm chaos throughout. The video is as ambitious as the song itself. Both extremely creative. Behold Kaleidoscope Horse for yourself live at their “Slow, Slow” Album Release Party at the Super Wonder Gallery on August 23rd. – Kris Gies





A Deli Premiere: No Swoon share single “Blame The Messenger” + play Elsewhere on 8/8

Fresh off of their impressive live show appearance at Northside Fest, noisy dream-gazers No Swoon premiere their latest track “Blame The Messenger” here on The Deli. Establishing its soaring melody from the very first note, a triumphant swirl of guitar and keyboards float above deep thudding drums. Vocalist (and guitarist) Tasha Abbott sings in a sultry and elongated style that references Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins. “Blame the messenger and dusty words,” she sings (extended out as “wo-o-o-ords”) against the band's momentary angular accents. “Tongue's all wet (pronounced “way-a-yet”), flooding the curb” points towards a theme of desire and apprehension. With nearly if not all the bass coming from keyboards, the tracks underpinnings are buzzier and less note driven. A central ambient interlude ultimately leads to one more lengthy instrumental break, complete with elevated vocal outro. The band will play a free show this Wednesday 8/8 at Elsewhere's Rooftop with Rodes Rollins. - Dave Cromwell
