Wave Action will ride their way into your hearts

 With no shortage of bands that fall under the surf or garage rock veil to give your attention to, sifting through what's worthy of your time can be exhaustively consuming. Bands that find ways to stand out from the bunch might be few and far between, but noobies Wave Action are already carving out their niche quickly and specifically.

Though they formed just early last year, Wave Action already have a considerable amount of moves under their belt, from their numerous near packed shows with local acts of varied genres, to their well received debut album and an upcoming tour in support of it to boot.

Pulling elements from post-punk, psych and indie to build their own special recipe for the new archetype of the styles, Wave Action both as people and as a band are hard not to fall for.

Their tour kickoff show is this Friday (the same day as our next Deli Portland Presents showcase!) at the Clinton St. Theater. So for $8, it'd be worth wishing them a safe trip after our showcase is done. We'll miss them.

PREMIERE: Korgy & Bass - "Bernieman 2016"

Just because the Oregon Primaries have passed doesn't mean political fever has in any way tempered down. Bernie Sanders won the hearts of Oregonians and many aware voters across the United States alike, and in celebration of his desired socially justified campaign, Korgy & Bass are releasing a new song and video in his name.

Today we bring you "Bernieman 2016," a delightful trip hop ditty with an equally tripped out video. Pulling audio samples from some of Bernie's most beloved, exciteable speeches, "Bernieman 2016" pumps you up for the presidential hopeful in a way unlike any other political involvement tactic, using lo-fied beats and swirls of colors to stimulate the conscious mind.

Their new sh*t is dropping on Cavity Search Records, with a release show happening at the Alberta St. Pub on June 22nd with Catherine Feeny and Chris Johnedis so check it out.

Start your morning out with Korgy & Bass' chill sounds below and remember to stay woke.


Come hang with Strange Wool and Daisy Deaths this Thursday!

Thursdays are a lot like Fridays now, when it comes to having a grip of cool things happening around town. This Thursday, New York's the Numerators are touring through town and they've got two Portland delights bringing the local flavor to the show.

Both Strange Wool and Daisy Deaths have been coming up hot in the local scene and as former Deli Portland poll participants, we enjoy everything they both do. 

We're excited to learn that Daisy Deaths is working on a heavier sounding follow up to their awesome Black and White EP, which will feature a whole new talented lineup. 

Strange Wool have also seen some adjustments in lineup, but that hasn't stopped them from playing a grip of shows around town and just being overall chill dudes.

The show is coming up this Thursday at the Know, so come out and enjoy some live tunes to ease you into the weekend.


PREMIERE: The Toads - "I'm a Toad"

Coming out onto the scene with a fervent drive to dominate the pop punk world with excitable power, The Toads have done a lot with themselves in their first year as a band. Since their formation early last year, they've recorded a full length, performed upwards of 60 shows and have a couple music videos to tout. Today, we're presenting you with another one.

With shots filmed around the Pearl, "I'm a Toad" is a fun video showing the three toadies, guitarist Matt Kane, bassist Matt Dinaro and drummer Mitch Gonzales run somewhat of a muck through Saturday Market, donning all white a la Andrew W.K. Their color performance scenes were filmed at the Khao San restaurant, with the restaurant owner Bud funding the video and even making a guest appearance chauffeuring the trio around in a Tuk Tuk.

The Toads have got a show coming up on the 28th with Daisy Deaths and Lord Becky at the Turn Turn Turn. "I'm a Toad" is both the kind of song and video that makes you want to jump up, act crazy and freak a few people out. Give it a watch below.


Catch Roselit Bone while you can!

Just in case you haven't heard, country music is alive and well in Portland. We're not talking about that American Idol mess your mother probably listens to. We're talking the dusty steel, brooding Americana that keeps the genre a contender for space on your playlist.

Both Roselit Bone and Jenny Don't & the Spurs can turn even the most stubborn anti-country music fan into an appreciator of that twang. The two just release a split a couple weeks ago and while Jenny Don't & the Spurs have already hit the road for tour, you've still got a couple chances to see Roselit Bone before they leave for theirs in August. 

They've got a show coming up tomorrow at Bunk Bar with Abronia and Tucson's Ohioan. You really can't miss it, since that second chance won't be coming up until right before they hit the dusty trails.
