July 2014
Baked
"'Debt'
"
mp3

Last year Baked came out with a tape called S/T Cassette.  Two songs short, it's enough to see where the band is coming from; they're not afraid to blur themselves, letting the sounds melt into landscape jams.  On Debt, their debut off Exploding in Sound, Baked is still melting, but it's a much more guided flow.  The album mixes high velocities with the turned down mellow feels that Baked just seems to ooze from every orifice.   R.J. Gordon's vocals take a back seat under a wash of reverb, sitting just below the pop driven melodies that surround him.  "Mick Jagger" especially is a stunner, where Yoni David's drumming drives the tune as the rest of the sounds float in zero gravity.  There's something unobtainably attractive about this band's sound, whether it's because they remind us of England's long lost Wu Lyf, or because they channel Bedhead at the same time. - Jake Saunders

Thee Midnight Creep

Thee Midnight Creep

Have you heard of or seen this guy?  Bill Campbell is Thee Midnight Creep, and underneath the patina of eerie/gothic music that his image belies, are well crafted, thoughtful lyrics and a deep nostalgic croon for a voice.  Nick Cave meets Castanets- that's Thee Midnight Creep.  Usually, here on The Deli, we post about an upcoming event, or an album about to be released, but damn it, I can't find any "news" item to post for this fellow other than I think he is magnificent and you should listen to him on his myspace, or see him live, or buy his album (does he have an album out?)!  If you have more information on this one-man-band, please comment.  His myspace info, which serves as an example of his ambiguousness, is below:

Bio: southern ex-patriot
Members: a Martin, a Guild and an Auto-harp
Influences:
Sounds Like: hollerin' into a well
