Electronic indie duo Analog Dream release 'no boundaries' EP

The new EP, no boundaries, from San Francisco’s indie electronic duo Analog Dream is a deep dive into who Jorge Sandoval and Rich Cannon are as a band, and as individual people. Opening track “Choke” (streaming below) explores themes of pushing through difficult times and maintaining faith, culminating in a crescendo of emotion. The duo’s guitar-heavy brand of electronica is intense and hits hard, built to be listened to loudly and to be played live. Stay tuned for their next gig! - Lilly Milman

The Saxophones release stunningly intimate debut LP

The debut full-length release, Songs of The Saxophones, by — you guessed it — husband-and-wife band The Saxophones is a tender and timeless piece of work. Filled with reflective and vulnerable lyrics (like “I know it’s not supposed to stay; / but still, I want my way.” from “Aloha,” and “I’m starting to lose / I’m falling asleep and I am sorry again” from “Singing Desperately,”) this work flickers like a candle flame. Sonically delicate and endlessly pleasant, this is a debut to remember. The Saxophones will play their next show in Los Angeles on July 14 at The Hotel Cafe. Stream the full album below. - Lilly Milman





From the digital submissions: pop-punk meets surf on "marbles" by The Mystic Decade

The new single “marbles” (streaming) by the San Jose duo of pop-punkers known as The Mystic Decade packs a fun melody and an earnest delivery into a three minute timespan. The surfy guitar arrangements are a breath of fresh air, especially as they take control in the last twenty seconds of the track. The Mystic Decade recently finished up a four-part YouTube documentary series about their band called Reality_In_Monochrome, showcasing their affinity for filmmaking. - Lilly Milman

Bodega is on the cover of the 54th issue of The Deli NYC!

If there's a turn of phrase we kind of detest here at The Deli is "taking the scene by storm." It's one of those generic prefab sentences that ring insincere. But then again, sometimes, some bands do that - kind of rare, but it happens, right? And sometimes, on a hot day like today, being lazy is kind of inevitable. So... yes! Brooklyn's Bodega are taking the NYC scene by storm with their blend of post-punk and pop and their super-fun live shows. That, and their somewhat familiar name, are the main reasons why they are on the cover of the new, spring 2018 issue of The Deli! 

The issue, our 54th NYC one, is now up online and you can read it here.

It's an issue linked to the biggest event for musicians we've ever organized, which will host a Stompbox Exhibit, a Synth Expo and a Vintage Guitar Exchange in a Bushwick art gallery called Absurd Conclave - hope to see you there!

A Deli Premiere: Locus Pocus's apocalyptic self-titled LP

Earlier this year, The Deli SF had the pleasure of premiering the single “Doctor’s Doctor” from San Francisco’s jangly psych outfit Locus Pocus. Now, the five-piece is back — but this time, with a full-length, self-titled LP, which The Deli SF is happy to be premiering once again.

Collectively, the band explained: “Locus Pocus (originally titled Cool Color Happiness) is about finding meaning and wellness amidst feelings of isolation and doom.” Although the same psychedelic side that appears in earlier releases comes out in tracks like “Game To Lose” and “Cool Color Happiness,” others — like opening track “Getting Creepy” or the central “Big White Car” — set a decidedly more punk tone for this apocalyptic record (note: the release date, June 6 at 6 a.m.) This fast-paced, frenzied release is a very welcome surprise from a band that has already managed to create a name for itself in the Bay Area scene. Locus Pocus will be playing an album release show at Cafe du Nord on June 29. - Lilly Milman

Stream the record in its entirety below, before it becomes available on all streaming platforms later today.
