Hot Flash Heat Wave prepare to take on SXSW and embark on a national tour

With the saccharine retro sound that Hot Flash Heat Wave has coined as their own, even the repeating line from their breakout single “Gutter Girl” (streaming below), “I don’t need nothing expect for my gutter girl,” comes off as kitschy, rather than sleazy. There’s just something completely natural about the way the four high best friends blend together fuzzy guitars with recklessly fun harmonies. At its core, their sound is good, clean garage rock, infused with 60s pop sensibilities and a production value that is through the roof. It’s no surprise that they are already gearing up to embark on their first national tour, with several Bay Area dates throughout March and a pit stop at SXSW. Currently at the forefront of the Bay Area DIY scene, they're one of those bands that actually deserve all the hype they are getting (and then some.) Catch them in San Francisco on March 7th at The Independent, and check out their Facebook page for the rest of their tour dates. - Lilly Milman





New Cameron Boucher/Field Medic Split EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Yesterday, local imprint Flower Girl Records issued a split release between label founder Cameron Boucher (Sorority Noise, Small Circle) and Field Medic, a.k.a. Kevin Patrick Sullivan, with its proceeds going to Covenant House. The four-song selection is directly linked to one’s emotive core. Vulnerable, folk instrumentation places a spotlight on the open love letter lyrics in “Of Alaska” and “ITL” (Reprise). There’s beauty in embracing and accepting the imperfections of those you love. Field Medic is part of tonight’s lineup at Everybody Hits, which also includes Kississippi, Shannen Moser, and Cherry.





A Deli Premiere: Ellisa Sun's "Evening" Video

A previous Deli SF featured artist of the month, Ellisa Sun is the creator of a breezy brand of acoustic soul that is at once tender and raw. She channels her perchance for vulnerability in her newest video for “Evening” (streaming below), which The Deli SF is proud to premiere this Valentine’s Day. Puppy-lovers be warned, this is not a video for the honeymoon phase.

Featuring a storyline between two women in a relationship, the video takes the viewer through a scenario that any lover would fear: an intense happiness that settles into a frantic anger, and then ultimately indifference. All of this is set to Ellisa Sun’s dynamic vocals, which are filled with a power that grows by the second. Join our lonely hearts’ club and check the video out below. - Lilly Milman
