Debut Yankee Bluff EP Available for Streaming & Download

With a laid-back, bare-bones folk feel, Yankee Bluff’s debut EP, simply titled I, invites with its jangly tones and introspective lyricism. Emerging from the conclusion of Dogs On Acid and featuring Pete Helmis and Nate Dionne, Yankee Bluff is an engaging low-key take that sways you into submission. Catch them at Boot & Saddle on Monday, August 22 with Callowhill and Milemarker!


Steady Holiday performs at Santa Monica Pier's Twilight Concerts

After many years of collaboration, Dre Babinski shines steadily in her own light as Steady Holiday, starting her dream pop foray with debut album Under the Influence. Poignant, personal and touching, Babinski’s lyrics are buried under infectious melodies, but become uncovered after a few listens. Words like, “it’s a lonely world, I don’t want to be hurt” ("Under the Influence") and “We’re not alone/ You and I have our demons we can’t control” ("Overcast Waltz") resonate with a solo artist’s apprehension. Having performed at the prominent Coachella Festival, Steady Holiday performs again for all, free on September 1 at Santa Monica Pier's Twilight Concert Series with Unknown Mortal Orchestra. - Kaitlyn Tang


Exclusive Deli Austin Premiere: Mamahawk's 'Reset' Music Video

Mamahawk is one of the Austin music scene's emerging gems, a deeply soulful band that meshes bright electronics with warm, thoughtful vocals and acoustic elements to create some of the prettiest and more relaxing indie music to come out of the city in a long time. Today, we're beyond excited to be premiering this up-and-coming act's new video for the gorgeous 'Reset,' a melancholic video for a track from last year's self-titled album, and, according to the band, the video 'explores the push and pull relationship between our animalistic, primal urges and our societal conditioning.' As Mamahawk says, 'It is a call to simply be still and feel the life inside and around us, if only for a moment. Embracing that raw, instinctual side of ourselves may be the only way to truly be free in this world.'

It's a video that puts its own intriguing spin on the trope of the man stuck in a cubicle who yearns for the freedom of wilderness, and locals will note a good amount of Austin-area locations, such as Plaza Saltillo and a particularly striking shot at the border of the forest still devastated by the Bastrop forest fires of the last few years.

The video is immensely relatable for anyone living the modern grind, tenderly channeling the ideas of being a wild being trapped in a static, constricting contemporary world into the symbol of a literal hawkperson (more specifically, a business hawk/person), and the thoroughly gorgeous music is a nice counterpoint to the initial bleakness of the video. As the narrative unfolds, the idyllic sound accompanies the rising action fittingly, and the emotional payoff here is solid.

This video should do a lot to bring Mamahawk's glimmer to a larger audience, and in fact, you can see the whole thing live as part of one of Mamahawk's sets tomorrow July 28 at their Mohawk show, which also includes such great local talent as Yuma, Shapescenes, The Khost and Chill Russell. Give the video a listen below, and if you like what you hear and see, find your way to Mohawk tomorrow for what promises to be an excellent night of music, or check out the full album at their Bandcamp here.


The Bribes Play Hyde Street Studios Eclectic Tuesday - 8/2

The Bribes are to play Hyde Street Studios' Eclectic Tuesday on August 2nd from 7pm - 11pm!

The Bribes is the project of Chicago-born, San Francisco-based musician Philip Toscano. Toscano has relocated The Bribes to the Bay after releasing three records and headlining nearly every mid-sized and DIY venue on the northwest side. He is currently performing solo under the name The Bribes and collaborating with Jameson Irish Whisky as a part of the "Spirit of the Neighborhood" campaign.

The band's latest recording, "Dust Tapes," released in May 2016, is an ambitious bite-sized rock opera ​intended ​to portray a series of dreams about mortality through a melodically accessible sonic landscape. The result is a cohesive, dark-but-danceable record infused with pop rock hooks and 1950s/60s rock and roll sensibilities.

Bodies Be Rivers, Lacrymosa release collaborative 7'' split + play release show on 8/29

Sometimes a collaboration is all a band needs to to reach the next level, and a prime example of this phenomenon is "Making Plans," Bodies Be Rivers' collaboration with mysterious pianist/singer Lacrymosa. On their past work, Bodies Be Rivers mostly relied on their guitar parts to hold down the song's structure, anchoring their ethereal vocals from floating off into space. With the addition of Lacrymosa's piano, however, the load is lightened, allowing the guitar to contribute to the song's overall atmosphere. The result is something far dreamier and uplifting than anything they've done in the past. "Making Plans" is the lead single off of a collaborative 7'' split between the two artists, and you can check out their release show on 8/29 at Manhattan Inn. — Henry Solotaroff-Webber
