Astronauts, etc. Releases New Single - Fuss

We mentioned last week that we'd share Bay Area based experimental hip hop - psych artist, Astronauts, etc.'s new single, Fuss...so now is the time.

This smooth and sensually cathartic track kind of brings sexy back to the Bay Area experimental synth scene. Everyone needs a little slowcore, tripped out synth music in their lives once in a while, and this musical project creates a potent atmosphere with style and grace. We're always happy to sit back and not have our heads jarred every second with new music, so we invite a grooved out psych track to calm our nerves and to change the pace a little bit. (PS: continue to send us loud, intense music because tomorrow it may be time to rage).  

With touches of R&B and neo soul, Astronauts, ect is definitely onto something great.

Street Eaters Release New Music Video - Empty Rooms

Bay Area based experimental alt punk band, Street Eaters have released a new music video for their song, Empty Rooms. The video is a manic, semi art nouveau short film that is fun and high energy. The duo blinks in and out of different backdrops and scenery throughout the piece making the video seamlessly odd while still looking like it's been professionally shot. Check it out. Street Eaters rock!

Don't miss their album release show at the Hemlock Tavern in San Francisco with No Babies on August 14th. The show is FREE!

Song Premiere: Split Screens - Stand Alone

The San Francisco based psychedelic alternative rock music project, Split Screens has given us the honor of premiering their new track, Stand Alone. This mellow and artistically somber song is a great representation of the echoey instrumentation that Split Screens does so well. This project is the creation of songwriter and arranger, Jesse Cafiero who plays multiple instruments on all of his pieces. His music comes across as very thoughtful and introspective, and the vibe of Stand Alone reflects that.

Cafiero'a talent shines and we're excited to hear his work evolve and will wait impatiently for the full album to emerge. Until then, listen to The Deli Magazine San Francisco's premiere of Stand Alone! -je

Band to Watch: Vollmer

We’ve heard that there are a lot of great country and folk bands swarming this town, but there is nothing like the stark, garage country band Vollmer. Created as a homage to the slain second wife of William S. Burroughs, Joan Vollmer, this band opens every live performance with a simple vigil, and the intention of bringing awareness to the imbalance and injustice famous artist’s female partners endure, and Joan's story in particular.

Their laid back California drenched Haight st. personas can’t hide their small town drawls and deeply embedded country ties. We like them because they’re a guilty pleasure and completely different than the noisy, gazey and washed out counter culture bands we’re used to (and love a bunch as well). Drawing from influences like The Silver Jews, The Rolling Stones and Johnny Cash, Jonny Moon, and the entire band (who all sport the last name Moon, making the entire situation a strangely fitting family affair), brings a gutter punk glam to country music.

Anything that is an acquired taste, any band that has the ability to totally be themselves and swag onto a stage quoting anti folk bands like The Moldy Peaches while singing with chewing tobacco in their cheeks is a-okay with The Deli.

They’re in the midst of recording their new album, which will be completed whenever they see fit. Vollmer will be playing a Deli Magazine Sponsored Event with our friends Spider Heart and The Janunting Martyrs (who will be playing their first show since March) at El Rio on August 20th. Don’t miss it! -je

Astronauts, etc. Prepares to Release New Album

The Oakland based psych rock, hip hop band, Astronauts, etc. will be releasing a new EP entitled, Sadie. This unique and gravitating release is due out in September, and next week, we'll be sharing their new single, Fuss with you for your listening pleasure. Until then, get your ears wet on the band's cover of Odessa by Caribou!

Luke Sweeney Releases Second Single From Upcoming Album Adventure:Us

Luke Sweeney has released a new track from their upcoming full length album, Adventure:Us. This endearingly jangly pop rock track is quintessential Luke Sweeney, but slightly stripped down and more lyric based. Doin' It To You is a pleasing song that doesn't overwhelm and reveals warm tones, but still contains that sense of humor we've come to enjoy and expect: an over the top song title coating a non-aggressive musical composition style that is fun, creative and well produced.

Keep your eye out for the release of Adventure:Us on October 14th us through Aerobic International. -je
