Rusty Dusty Brings Psychedelic Reassurement

 

Hailing from the depths of central Texas, Rusty Dusty brings to the table the familiar qualities of psychedelic rock but harmoniously paired with southern rock. With this particular sound that can't be mimicked, Rusty Dusty lets you drop out and take a step back to see where life has taken you and where you can go from here.
 
From your first listen to the album The No Good Serpentine Funtime Mosaic Experience, you find yourself diving into a headspace full of imagination and hope. There are a number of clear influences such as the likes of Dr. Dog and The Black Crowes. But, it would be wrong to simply say that they don’t hold their own. Rusty Dusty’s music has an individuality of its own. They present a different look at the way we approach music and the real benefit that comes from understanding the artist. It has a quality, a feeling as if you were being written about from their own perspective. 
 
Full of love and wonder, Rusty Dusty leaves us thinking about more than music. They have created a sound that remains true to the concepts of friendship, true love, heartbreak, and heartache. Feeling uplifted and joyful about the future, it allows us to take something more than a listener’s enjoyment from this band. With their opening track “Strange Strange Strange,” you can find yourself drifting into space to contemplate what you desire. Rusty Dusty not only connects to you, but welcomes you into their psychedelic world. If there were one simple message to be made out of their lyrics, it would be to never give up–keep pursuing everything and anything you love, no matter what life throws back at you. 
 
Even more, there's something that comes out of the dissonant guitar and thought-provoking lyrics. Rusty Dusty reminds us that though the answers may be in front of you, there is a subtlety of pain that must exist alongside it. Sadness is a mere reflection in the music. They've reached a certain level of life experience that brings light to understanding that it's not about the path you take, but the way you get there.
 
Overall, what might seem simple at surface layer for Rusty Dusty is actually more deeply entrenched in meaning. The atmosphere they create is a world you’d want to travel to. Their lyrics create a bridge where the artist and the listener can meet to have a mutual experience.

Squiggly Lines - Dream Pop Single "Dragonfly", New Album 09.21

Squiggly Lines is a mysterious indie pop band from Toronto. Their latest single is a dreamy pop track titled “Dragonfly” which is, in their words “a song about bugs”. This track has somber tones and rather sad lyrics about missing a person all the way in Montreal at first before kickin’ in with a more upbeat B section. The melancholy sound of the verse still has a comforting feel to it. I hear some Homeshake vibes in this tune. Squiggly Lines has a new album being released on September 21st. – Kris Gies

New False Tracks Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quartet of False Tracks recently released a new album, Either World, which was recorded by Uniform Recording's Jeff Ziegler. A spacious, new-wave jangle melds with persistent backend and bass-thumping rhythms, creating an urgent, adventurous dynamic. The ability to push the pace, exuding a timely grit while remaining instrumentally locked-in, produces a memorable collection of tracks. The band also has a new video to accompany album opener "Psyops". ("Fans of the Amazing Kreskin, Smell-o-vision, and Horrors of the Black Museum, indulge yourselves.")





A Deli Premiere: "Things That Are Broken" by Elodie

A journey that began at the age of 4 hits a milestone today for Boston’s indie-folk songstress Elodie: the eloquent songwriter’s debut EP Things That Are Broken is out now. From the start of the record, Elodie’s emotions are gracefully and honestly exposed via the retrospective lyrics that are sung with hard-charging passion in the choruses of “City Paved With Stone.” The rapid rhythm of the song’s climax sets the canvas for Elodie’s fierce melodic collage. “Face in the Mirror” treats the listener to beautiful string-instrument swells and warm piano notes that create the perfect atmosphere for Elodie’s vivid storytelling. “Motion Sickness” is a punchy track filled with melancholic sincerity that is led by Elodie’s intricate acoustic guitar work. “Something More” is Elodie’s vocal point of excellence, while the record’s closing track “(May You) Find Your Way” is a cheery folk send-off that wraps everything up beautifully. The singer-songwriter’s travels from her native New York to Boston and beyond have helped shape a journey that is ever-present in each of the tracks she has chosen to share. Those that have supported her, a those like us, who are fortunate to listen, cheer for a rising New England artist. Catch Elodie playing at the Lilypad Inman in Cambridge on October 4th. We are thrilled to premiere Things That Are Broken for you below. - Rene Cobar
