Video: The Donkeys, "Scissor Me Cigs"

The dreamy, sun-drenched essence of the golden coast is an intoxicant in itself. And San Diego’s own The Donkeys are turning out a style of soft rock perfectly complimentary to the quintessential Cali vibe. Drawing from 60’s surf rock instrumentation similar to Dick Dale & The Del Tones and The Beach Boys, their newest full-length album release Ride the Black Wave offers a sound much like it name suggests: a hybrid between swaying, soft beach music reminiscent of Best Coast and Beach Fossils, along with something a bit darker. The result of this combination being a pleasantly somber and sedating fusion of rock, sunshine, and surf. Think Arctic Monkeys in paradise. - Michael Iemma

The KDSML Revue Returns to Exit/In 7.24

Exit/In will be featuring some of the freshest, most innovative talent in the South this Thursday night.  The KDSML Revue is the brainchild of its namesake, a UK-born turntablist with a DJ pedigree (his father wrote Babe Ruth's "The Mexican"). The purpose of the Revue is to showcase new artists and foster a collaborative spirit that reaches beyond genre and medium boundaries; the lineup for the evening includes Atlanta's Skymatic, SOSA, Black Cat Sylvester, Audeon, and live painting on Exit/In's new patio by REX2.  Check out this video of KDSML and Black Cat Sylvester showcasing the newly-patented Synth Table.  Expect just as much noodle-y dancing and more grooves on Thursday.  The event kicks off at 9, and cover is $5 (although ladies get in free before 11.) -Terra James-Jura

Shenandoah and the Night releases first of a series of EPs + plays Pete's Candy Store on 07.25

Sultry folk band Shenandoah and the Night (whose debut EP was The Deli NYC's Record of the Month back in 2011) has just released the haunting ‘100 Wants, Part One,’ the first of a series of live and studio recordings that will be released on a quarterly basis and will culminate in a vinyl pressing upon completion. Infectiously feminine Shenandoah Ableman's and her uniquely melancholic (and almost vintage sounding) soprano return this time within even sparser arrangements, and we’re hoping the rest of the releases follow suit— so far, we love what we’re hearing. Listen to the release here and be sure to catch their July 25th performance at Pete’s Candy Store. - Jillian Dooley

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!

New YIKES the ZERO LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

YIKES the ZERO recently dropped his latest full-length album Yikey The Giant Slayer. The experimental producer/emcee simply doesn't sound like any artist coming out of Philly's underground hip-hop scene, and that's obviously a good thing to us. YIKES will be celebrating the record's release this Thursday, July 24 at Kung Fu Necktie with support from Old Hands, Hang-Up to Flat, and Carl Kavorkian.

Artist of the Month: Jackson Boone

Last Wedneday marked the close of another Deli Portland 'Artist of the Month' poll. The fans cried loud and a new king has been crowned. Congrats Jackson Boone, your experimental folky psych tunes are the current jam! Stream their brand new album, Starlit, and name your own price to own a digital copy of it here! Produced by Reily Geare of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and accompanied on the recording by members of Radiation City, it's no wonder that this album has been on repeat in my livingroom since it's release.

Pours takes psychedelia to new heights on "Boomcan"

Close your eyes and you might drift away in the cloudy soundscape of “Boomcan,” a song lifted from Pours' self-titled debut LP. On the track, the Vermont duo crafts its own sound by combining chillwave synths, live drums and synth hooks that wouldn’t be out of place in Kid Cudi’s best work. The song was released to Bandcamp on June 25 alongside the similarly trippy, unpredictable “Carry the Oar.” The band is currently crossing the country on tour, but stay tuned to its Facebook page to find out when you can see them next. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)

Johnny Lewis announces debut LP + plays Pianos on 08.12

Progressive Americana singer/songwriter Johnny Lewis, who fronts a six-piece ensemble that plays chill acoustic jams accompanied by the singer's calm voice and soothing backup vocals. The former electronic music producer is set to release his self-titled debut LP on 9/23. Opening for bands like The Flaming Lips and EOTO, Lewis plays music that resonates with the jam band sound, even sounding a little like some of Phish's slower acoustic studio tracks in his song 'Familiar Chime,' which you can listen to below. You can catch him and his band at their album release show on 9/8 at Mercury Lounge, or beforehand at Pianos on 8/12 as well as at Friends & Lovers in Brooklyn on 8/19. - Michael Haskoor (@Tweetskoor)
