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 Love City Horror Show Takes Place Tomorrow Night - 10/23

So, we don't know much about Love City except that the promoters and organizers behind it are throwing a massive All Hollows Eve party tomorrow night. We at The Deli think you should attend because the line up is local and extensive and you'll probably see a lot of strange costumes. The community is coming together to put on a festival-esque event that is daring to be unique and encourages you to step out of the every day club scene we have all happily and fortunately grown accustomed to.

The Love City Horror Show will feature a number of great bands including:

Zodiac Death Valley
Hungry Skinny
Down Dirty Shake
Strange Hotel
Down and Outlaws
The Spiral Electric
Growwler
The Deadbeatz

This is a pretty titillating local line up. In their own words - Eight bands. $2 draft beer. Costume not required, but strongly encouraged! *All Local Music // 18+$15 pre-sales available @ www.lovecitymusicfestival.com $20 at the door // $5 discount with costume

Have a good time at this party. We know you will! -je


The Spyrals and Burnt Ones Support Christian Bland and the Revelators at Brick and Mortar TONIGHT

San Francisco based underground staple psych band, The Spyrals along with the local experimental alt band, BURNT ONES will be supporting Austin, Texas' Christian Bland & The Revelators TONIGHT at Brick and Mortar Music Hall.

In case you didn't know, Christian Bland is the guitarist of the ultra successful neo psychedelic band, The Black Angels...so that's incentive for you to show up right there. Nonetheless, Bland has a poignant style of his own and you should definitely come experience one of the most influential musicians of the current underground era.

Let us not forget that The Spyrals and BURNT ONES are no slouches of themselves. They are both really strong live bands and they will compliment Bland's sound well. It's going to be a great show. We'll be there!


Slowness Cre·scen·do and Big Surr Play Neck of the Woods - 10/24

Counter Culture Artist Management Presents: San Francisco based authentic shoegaze band, Slowness will be playing Neck of the Woods on Friday, October 24th. The bill is rounded out by the washed out, etherial local band, Big Surr and the Los Angeles based Cali pop band, Cre·scen·do.

If you're into reverbed, psyched out post modern bands you'll enjoy this show. Big Surr will reflect a more youthful sound compared to the polished and seasoned gazey style of Slowness and Cre·scen·do will play an upbeat tempo driven style of pop rock to make the night reasonably eclectic.

We recommend you make it out to this show. The music will be good and you'll be near the beach. Sounds like a good way to spend a Friday night to us.

The Love Experimental: A Unique Event in Oakland - 10/26

We're excited to share with you the news of a very unique event that is going down in Oakland on October 26th. The Love Experiment brings together a number of talented Bay Area vocalists to sing and perform in the name of love. "A group of singers from the Bay Area had an intriguing thought: with the amount of negativity that surrounds us, what if the only way to respond was with it’s diametric opposite--love."

Oakland based vocalist and member of Moon Candy, Jovan Watkins brought together a number of singers to create a concept that will allow his vision of battling negativity a reality.

The Love Experiment deals with finding love, losing love, giving love and feeling like there’s no more love to give. The most powerful aspect of the Experiment is presenting the idea that love can be a healing force. With that idea at the forefront, the group decided to use proceeds to benefit organizations that are using love to combat negativity. This Experiment will benefit Operation Ceasefire.
