Mood Music: Dim Wit - "Wow Ow Now"

It's nearly impossible for these Deli eyes to stay open this morning without the help of this new track by the lo-fi funny boys of Dim Wit. They just dropped their first official single on Friday and for anyone that's had the chance to see Dim Wit live, you'll know how perfectly appropriate of a debut track it is for the duo's (sometimes trio) schtick.

Just picture them, clad in colorful wigs, rockin' about as those slinky string lines and screams come in as "Wow Ow Now" runs its course. Channeling Dim Wit's energy both on "Wow Ow Now" and from experiencing their live sets is the only way to start the week out.

Listen to "Wow Ow Now" below and be sure to catch them next week at Smart Collective.


Mood Music: Scourge of Ians - "La La"

Though we're still reeling from the heaviness of Sleep's performance last night, we're in need of something just as weighty but at a faster pace. What more perfect a fit than a litte bit of Scourge of Ians, whose consistently perfect balance of classic, raw punk with rhythm oriented post punk offers a nice and needed break from our local saturated music scene. 

They'll be joining Disassturbator (for the final show of their tour!) and Moogwynd on stage tonight at the Kenton Club, so if you're still in the mood later make sure you stop by. It's free!

Saturday Night Sounds: Schaus - "Galileo's Song"

 Here we find ourselves, yet again, on a Saturday night. Some of us may be out partying on the town while others might be cozily nestled in their beds. For those of us that prefer a personal party at home or may be looking for some tunes to get them in the mood to party as they're getting ready, we've got a fairly fresh track coming to you from local experimental artist Schaus.

"Galileo's Song" dropped earlier this month and is an artsy, avant-pop track that properly utilizes addiciting synth lines to create a soundscape you can't help but be immersed in. 

Listen to the track below and let it be the energetic addition to your party playlist or the necessary auditory element to your Saturday night chill sesh.

DAN DAN: The band you need to know

If you find yourself caught in some sort of music rut, consider expanding your radar to include the talents of DAN DAN. Our latest Artist of the Month winners are coming up on their one year annviersary of show-playing, making their debut you last Halloween at Slims.

Since then, the local trio have been dishing out heavily synthy, electro-laced instrumental rock that catalyzes deeper thoughts and fevered movements. We're desperately craving more than just the four tracks on their Soundcloud page but until then we can stay satiated on their live performances.

DAN DAN's next unmissable set is actually tomorrow at Valentines, along with Fake Fireplace and Daughter Talk. It's only $5, so be sure to stop by and congratulate them on their poll win and anniversary of band-dom!
