Psych





Weekend Warrior, March 1 - 3

Grandchildren celebrates its latest, eponymously-titled album (out now via Ernest Jenning Record Co.) with a performance this evening at Johnny Brenda’s. The former Danger Danger Gallery house band creates elaborately detailed instrumental frameworks, which despite their complexities retain an inherent, endearing optimism. With the addition of Shari Amanda, the group has added yet another facet. There’s a soothing cinematic quality to the songs, utilizing instrumentation with pinpoint precision, creating a spacious yet dramatic atmosphere. A sonic story is told that covers a vast expanse, while the dual-lined vocal harmonies capture a heartfelt proximity. Tonight, they’ll be joined by the reassuring, psych-inflected dreampop of Stereo League and singer-songwriter Vessna Scheff, whom soulfully merges folk and jazz with a ukulele in hand. – Michael Colavita

New Music Video: "V" - Coughy

The combination of Andy Molholt (Laser Background, Speedy Ortiz) and Julian Fader (Ava Luna), now known as Coughy, is slated to release its new album, Ocean Hug, on March 29 via Joyful Noise. The band recently shared a video for its lead single “V,” which was animated/directed by John Andrews. The footage elicits the nostalgic memories of reading The Three Little Pigs, with a playful somewhat creepy musical twist. The blown-out track appears as an acknowledgement by its narrator, who wants to work through the issues in a relationship rather than creating distance. You can catch the Brooklyn/Philly duo performing at Johnny Brenda's on Thursday, April 18 and Baby's All Right on Sunday, April 21.





Pacer - Bangin' New Shoegaze Track, Monarch Tavern 03.29

Rock n’ roll shoegazers Pacer have just released a brand new single. “Bangers” is a bangin’ track with a straight ahead rhythm that’ll make you nod your head to the beat immediately. It reminds me of the band Broncho but with clearer vocals. It’s a night time driving song that you’ll be singing along to by the final chorus. Pacer plays the Monarch Tavern on March 29th alongside The Good Palms (Australia), The Effens and Bad River. – Kris Gies





Album Premiere: WEEED - You Are The Sky

WEEED is releasing their 6th LP You Are The Sky and The Deli is lucky enough to be the ones to share it with you. While the album is definitely true to the psych-rock heart of the band, its krautrock and occult influences are what really pull you in. Listening to the album in its entirety is akin to walking a path full of twists and turns. One moment you’re peacefully hanging out in a sun-bathed field. The next you’re dancing your hardest in the middle of a hot, sweaty crowd. Above all else, no matter where the band takes you, you’re definitely stoned. It’s incredibly satisfying how WEEED can bring you into that mindset, even if you aren’t actually on any substances. It's fair to say smoking a bowl while playing You Are The Sky is equivalent to eating cheese with wine. So do with that what you will.

WEEED is playing their release show tonight at Mississippi Studios. Dreamdecay and Sea Moss will also be playing sets. You can find out more info here

Faiyaz & the Wasted Chances - "Another Crooked Line" single, Horseshoe 03.15

Toronto 3 piece garage rockers Faiyaz and the Wasted Chances have just released a brand new single. “Another Crooked Line” kicks off with the fuzz cranked right up but the verse follows with a dreamy pop feel. It all comes together for the big singalong chorus where they mention more wasted chances…so perhaps it’s not just a clever band name. They live the gimmick! So make sure to see these fellas live at the Horseshoe Tavern on March 15th with The Weather Wild, The Yonge Collective, The Celebration Army and Sophie & the Gentles. – Kris Gies
