Exclusive: Indie pop Parks Landing release their debut music video - Voices in My Head

Bouncing onto the Baltimore scene, Parks Landing has unveiled their very first music video exclusively with The Deli Magazine. "Voices in My Head" perfectly encapsulates the band's sound and energy: feel-good, upbeat, and serene. Mixing in fine bits of rock, pop, and indie, the vid captures the fun aura surrounding the band and is MTV-ready, that is if MTV still played music videos. Don't miss their record release party at Ottobar on 11/21! -Jonathan Goodwin


DC's classic punks The Split Seconds release debut self-titled LP

Bursting onto the DC punk scene earlier this year, The Split Seconds just put out an eponymous LP, their debut release, filled with sick riffs and raw, throaty vocals. Their influences range from The Buzzcocks to Screeching Weasel, distilling classic punk elements from decades of material and still making it sound like a modern album. If you’re in the mood for top-notch punk rock, check out their new album and keep an eye out for future show announcements. -Jonathan Goodwin


Lo-fi indie genius Car Seat Headrest release new album, Teens of Spirit, and play DC9, 12/7

Hailing from Leesburg, VA, Car Seat Headrest is making a huge splash on both coasts and across the Atlantic. What began as Will Toledo producing ten albums since 2015 has erupted into a full band getting covered by Rolling Stone and going on an international tour. They put out an LP last week called Teens of Spirit and it's killer. Toledo built his vocals in the vein of The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas and The Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff and the overall musicality inspires a wide range of feelings and energy. The new album would fit with any party, rife with roughly hewn instrumentals and angst-ridden lyrics. These guys are going to be huge, so catch them at DC9, 12/7, and Strange Matter in Richmond, 12/8. -Jonathan Goodwin


Haile Supreme and Alejandra SstudD put on an amazing Daybreaker show at Rock & Roll Hotel, 10/30

A Friday morning better than any other, Daybreaker did it again. This time, the show was hosted at the Rock & Roll Hotel and attendees grooved away the early hours in costume. DJ Alejandra SstudD and MC Haile Supreme brought together their talents and put on a kickass show, spinning out awesome mixes and pumping up the crowd. Haile danced onstage, in the crowd, in circles of other dancers, keeping the juice-swilling, costumed crowd energized and exuding positivity. With the talents of a trumpeter, a trombonist, and a drummer, the atmosphere was the perfect start to a Friday. If you like lots of audience engagement or diverse EDM, make sure you catch Haile Supreme or DJ SstudD live. Check out DJ SstudD’s sick new remix below and don't miss the next edition of Daybreaker DC!


Allday spits his Aussie rap gold at U Street Music Hall, 11/4

He’s brash and crass, laying down wisely juvenile verses in his oddly delightful Australian dialect. Rapper Allday is touring the US to support Startup Cult, his album released last year. He uses his music to share his uniquely down-under energy and inspired lyrics about life and relationships, and he’s coming to U Street Music Hall next week on 11/4. Sharing the stage that night with Mod Sun, New Beat Fund, and Benny Freestyles, you won't want to miss Allday for his sincerity and pleasing voice. Doors at 6:30, $15. -Jonathan Goodwin
