Milk Was A Bad Choice Benefit Showcase (11.01)

In the wake of the recent fires in Napa and Sonoma, the monthly Milk Was A Bad Choice showcase is donating the proceeds from the next show to relief for those communities. The stacked lineup includes a funky mix of the Bay Area’s best indie pop bands—all of which have been previously featured on The Deli. It’s hard to resist dancing to the upbeat, semi-electro melodic pop of Panic is Perfect, a five-piece with afro-pop influences. The jazzy six-piece LOCO TRANQUILO is sure to make you move, as well, with their unique blend genre-defying funk music. Finally, the slow-brewing soul-influenced alt rock of MOSAICS tops off the lineup. - Lilly Milman

Be sure to drop by the Milk Bar, catch this stacked line up, and donate to a worthy cause on November 1st at 8 pm. Until then, listen to our playlist of the performers below. 





RoniCea - Debut Single "Bassline"

RoniCea is a Toronto based soul singer who just released her first single “Bassline (ft. YoDaddyDoe)”. This track has major throwback vibes. The spacious beat with the synth/keys over the top hit that 90’s RnB spot so well. You don’t hear many new tunes like this nowadays. This will be cranked with the windows down all over Toronto very soon. This has the vibes of the peak era of RnB. I think they should have extended the outro for longer and really let that beat flow. Still a good tune no doubt. – Kris Gies

From the digital submissions: Bay Area producer Alec Lee releases 'Life in Pastel' EP

With electronic music becoming more popular than ever, it’s not surprising that bedroom artists are popping up all over the country. What is notable, though, is the producer that actually gets out of the bedroom and plays a live show. California native Alec Lee is of this rare breed, performing his soulful, Chet Faker-inspired electro-pop across the Bay Area, opening up for acts like Smash Mouth and Tender. His newest EP Life in Pastel is a cross-section of all his best qualities as a creator. His singer-songwriter side comes out in “I’ll Be Ready,” a stripped-down track that straddles the line between soul and pop, while “Found You” (streaming below) is a full-out explosion of upbeat electronica. - Lilly Milman

Saturn Rising creates powerful, avant-R&B

Saturn Rising produces moody R&B that sounds as astral as his name suggests. The singer/dancer crafts dreamy, dark soundscapes that strike powerfully on the rawest of human experiences, while still managing to fit in against other club bangers. The musical prowess and fierce individuality of Saturn Rising makes his music a must-listen, so be sure to stream him below.-Olivia Sisinni

Fried Dough - "Fried-Day the 13th" at Smiling Buddha

Here’s something a little different…Fried Dough. Great name for this electronic-psych package. This four piece band blends all their favorite things…animals, music and horses…into a thumpin’ 10 minute epic package known as “French Cinema”. The beginning sounds like it should be the opening credits for an 80’s action movie. You just gotta listen to it and get lost. It’s like if Daft Punk were a jam band. Hearing them live with real instruments would be awesome. Fried Dough play this “Fried-Day” October 13th at the Smiling Buddha. – Kris Gies
