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

The Deli's SXSW Issue 2014 is online!

Read it digitally here.

P.S. 10k free copies of this issue hit the street of Austin during SXSW Music week!


Preview: White Mystery + Mister Tang at Bunk 11.1

The day after Halloween is the perfect time to gently nurse your hangover (with candy), wipe the residual makeup and fake blood off your body (with candy wrappers), kick your feet up (on your heap of candy), have a couple Reese’s for breakfast, snort some pixie stix and GET HYPER, MAN! Then bring all that sticky, sugary energy down to Bunk Bar (1028 SE Water Ave, Portland, OR 97214) for some wacky and frenetic jollification with White Mystery, The Cry, Mister Tang, and DJ Andrew Loomis (of Dead Moon!).

Chicago’s own brother-sister powerduo White Mystery is a sludgy rock band best compared, fortuitously, to Nashville’s own brother-brother powerduo Jeff the Brotherhood. They play the same brand of cheeky, shreddy, fuzz-saturated, burners. Also they’re rocking the Orange amp so you can bet they’ll be playing heavy enough to have you involuntarily bowing down after a single power chord.

Have you ever noticed a group of 3-4 startlingly well-dressed neo-modsters with that Manchester haircut stalking local shows and wondered if they’re all in a band? That’s The Cry. Their ’60s inspired garage-pop is so sticky sweet you won’t be sure if its the music or the Jolly Ranchers in your ears. Afterward, Mister Tang will corrode said Jolly Ranchers out of those ears with their acidic, lo-fi, garage-punk jams.

To cap off the night, buy a damn sandwich and get something else in your system besides sugar for god’s sake. That shit’s bad for you.

Preview: Shred of the Dead 2014

There's an unnecessary push to party sometimes. During certain holidays, people expect you to GET OUT THERE and UNLEASH THE BEAST. Well, now there's an appropriate reason to do both of those things at the very least this upcoming weekend.

Over the course of three significant nights, October 30th through November 1st, Buzzface presents have curated a festival destined to live up to its name: Shred of the Dead.
 
Beginning on Thursday, October 30th, Dante's will host Tango Alpha Tango, The Grizzled Mighty, Fox and the Law and Foxy Lemon. The costume contest begins. Attendees will have a rare chance to wear whatever they want inside a place with a couple of catwalks and listen to amazing, heavier sounds from the Pacific Northwest.
 
Halloween night, Minden, Animal Eyes, the Lower 48, Cambrian Explosion and Chrome Lakes will play Star Theater. This is where the costume contest ends.
 
November 1st, White Mystery, the Cry and Mister Tang close the entire event with one final rager at Bunk Bar.

Sons of Huns Live at Devils Point 10.22

Some things are just meant to go together... mac and cheese; whiskey and fightin'; Yin and Yang; and of course Rock n' Roll and babes! This Wednesday night, The Devils Point strip club presents the latter: live, cut-throat, riff-heavy metal by Sons of Huns, who will be accompanied by the infamous badass, mowhawk yielding, tattood nudie dancer, Malice. The Huns are sure to fill out this small, single dance stage club with their raucous sounds and rowdy fans alike. Having spent a good chunk of the past year touring the States and playing with various huge names in the metal scene such as Andrew W.K, Danava, Kadavar, Graveyard, Wolfmother, and Saint Vitus to name a few, SOH only have a few remaining shows to play for us this year here in Portland before they hunker back down to record a follow up to their slaying debut album, Banishment Ritual. And what more could you ask for than such an intimate show with live nudes? 10pm, Wednesday night 10.22, $5 cover.
