A Heart is a Spade: Savoir Adore Debuts New Video



December 2014
Frankie Cosmos
"Zentropy
"
mp3

If you like unassuming, short and charming pop songs about high school, firemen and buses, look no further than 19 year old singer-songwriter Frankie Cosmos. In her just released first full-length 'Zentropy,' (though she's put out at least 40 other digital records on Bandcamp over the years - no joke!) Greta Kline reveals much of her inner child, whether singing about what her dad is up to or how birthdays don't mean you're getting older. But 'Zentropy' equally exposes a young lady just beginning to wrestle with explorations of love and life anxieties. It's a fascinating journey just begun, and songs like "Birthday" (streaming below), showcase a melodic talent that's not afraid to experiment with tempo changes and assorted influences, without losing her signature, intimate style. 
If Frankie Cosmos manages to keep half these levels of prolificity in her 20s, we can definitely expect a bunch of hits from her. Because great music - like everything else - is all about trying hard. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)

The Deli Magazine San Francisco Presents: Modern Man Buzzmutt and Baus at DNA Lounge - 4/18

As you may or may have not heard, The Deli Magazine San Francisco is spearheading a series of shows at the DNA Lounge. For the very first show (after our Riot Grrrl party we threw at SUB/Mission in February) April 18, we've got an excellent lineup of local bands consisting of Modern Man, Buzzmutt and Baus.

Baus is an Oakland band that made waves last month with the release of their first full-length, Idol Minds. The band blends elements of post-punk and no wave to create truly jagged and abrasive tunes. Buzzmutt is a band from San Francisco wh playing psych-tinged noise rock. And headlining is Modern Man, an Oakland-based band that weaves together drudgingly dark shoegaze. Last year the band came out with an awesome tape entitled, Small Waves.

The choice is yours: Do you want to come and celebrate a new era of The Deli Magazine San Francisco and local music, or do you want to stay at home? -Erin Dage

Album Review: Vulture Legs

A new era of reinvented garage rock is upon us, and there's no better musical example that represents this statement than San Fran based group, Vulture Legs. Bearing bluesy garage vibes, their four-song EP Crawl With Me ranges in sound reminiscent of a cooled-off Black Keys and a cleaned-up version of FIDLAR.

Organ overtones in No Game throwback their sound to the 60's, with poetically blunt lyrics (mean on the streets/tryna sell some happiness/woman on the corner, man did you see her? /no she's not your ordinary girl). With Me Girl leads with a strong guitar interlude, as lyrics plead for a chance with the opposite sex (Won't you take a ride with me girl/I can show you things girl). Read Between The Lines is filled with fast-paced guitar riffs and battering drum beats as vocals dance up and down the melodies. Citing "a tasty casserole" as an influence on their Facebook bio, the tastiness is inevitably apparent in their first release. We can expect great things from Vulture Legs. -Kat Collins

Ancient River Down Dirt Shake and California Raga Association Play The Knockout TONIGHT

Down Dirty Shake is headling another San Francisco show. This time, they'll be playing with Gainsville based Ancient River and California Raga Association, formallly the Brooklyn Raga Association. This is going to be a classic psych revival show with diverse interpretations of the genre being expressed by each band. Down Dirty Shake plays psych-soul, with a heavy and stylistic resemblence to The Doors. Ancient River is more Pink Floyd-esque garage, gritty sound that drive, and the California Raga Association brings a roots version of psych rock to the table.

Don't miss this show!


Joel Gion Premieres New Music Video

San Francisco based neo psych-revivalist and Bay Area based music legend, Joel Gion is beginning to gain momentum with his solo music project, Joel Gion & the Primary Colors. With a hand full of local shows under his belt, Gion continues to emerge with the premiere of his new music video, Overthrow. The video is a reflection of the washed and colorful track that highlights Joel's whispered shoegaze vocals and Ryan Van Kriedt's unique and haunting audial production style. Members of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, Federale, Asteroid #4 and Dead Skeletons lend a hand to this sensuous track.

The video (created by Damien Taylor) is completely trippy and portrays a visual homage to psychedelic culture and rock and roll awesomeness. Look out for this track, which is set for release on 7" and download cards on April 22. Gion's new full length album is titled, Apple Bonkers and is set to emerge onto the scene this summer. -je

The Younger Lovers Quaaludes Bad Daddies and Yi Play the Hemlock Tavern TONIGHT

If one thing's for sure, we at the Deli Magazine San Francisco can't get enough of Quaaludes and The Younger Lovers. Quaaludes played our first Deli sponsored event of the season, so we were thrilled when we heard that The Younger Lovers, Quaaludes, Bad Daddies and Yi would be playing a show at the Hemlock Tavern tonight.

Yi is an Oakland based band that plays jagged-sounding punk. Recently, they released a track from their upcoming album, Crying called "Going Dumb." It has the perfect amount of fuzz and noise. Bad Daddies is an East Bay band that plays loud and fast punk. Expect a new 7-inch from the band on Negative Fun Records coming in June! And next is Quaaludes - this girl band plays a mixture of riot grrrl, no wave and grunge and are known for putting on a raucous show! And last but not least are The Younger Lovers, an Oakland based band that features Gravy Train!!! alum Brontez Purnell. Playing a form of fast and snotty lo-fi, be sure not to miss out on this show! -Erin Dage
