Hollister trio Conserve strip down their sound in "Puzzle Dust" EP

The newest EP, Puzzle Dust, from Hollister-based trio Conserve takes the band in a completely new direction from their debut self-titled album. In their sophomore release, they completely strip down their sound and rely solely on acoustic guitar and vocals—whereas Conserve is heavily punk and garage influenced. This isn’t a surprising move for a band that is determined to escape the confines of genre, and they do it well, bringing a distinctly grunge sensibility to singer-songwriter tracks. Catch their next show at The Colony on April 29th. - Lilly Milman

Listen to our favorite track “Inside Looking Out” below.

A Deli Premiere: Locus Pocus release "Doctor's Doctor" & play The Ivy Room (4.6)

If you have yet to hear the apocalyptic indie psych of San Francisco five-piece Locus Pocus, then you are surely suffering from intense FOMO. Good thing that we have the cure. Today, the Deli SF is happy to premiere “Doctor's Doctor” (streaming below), the first single off their forthcoming self-titled debut LP. This track departs from the band’s previous style, trading in some of the softer sounds, creating a feeling that is much more urgent. Locus Pocus plans to release their next single on May 6th, and the full album on June 6th—a decision meant to align with the themes of the album, and, in the band’s words, “to be cheeky.” If you like what you hear, make sure to catch this track live tonight at The Ivy Room in Albany. - Lilly Milman





The Bikini Complex release fun and fresh LP "The 'B' Word" & play Hotel Utah Saloon (4.15)

Just in time for spring, San Francisco indie rockers The Bikini Complex have released an energizing new LP entitled The “B” Word. The LP opens with the electrifying track “Come Out Swinging” (streaming below), a sunny amalgamation of pop, punk, and rock that allows lead singer Kiki The Cat’s dynamic Debbie Harry-esque vocals to soar—especially on the chorus. The album overall is an undeniably fun addition to the current Bay Area indie scene, and, in the band’s own words, “won’t disappoint if you need a few songs to drive fast to, or just an album to listen to around the house while you reluctantly clean up after your housemates.” Their next show will be at Hotel Utah Saloon on April 15th at 8 pm. - Lilly Milman

Showcase Alert: Throwin' Bo's at The Elbo Room (4.5) ft. Half Stack, The Band Ice Cream, and The Younger Lovers

The Deli SF is excited to announce that from the same people that brought you the monthly Milk Was A Bad Choice showcase, comes Throwin’ Bo’s—a new local showcase at the Elbo Room, hosted on the first Thursday of every month. For everyone who feels like they hang out at the same bar and see the same people every day, this is the event for you.

The first installment is approaching quickly on April 5th, featuring the psych-influenced, jangle-folk of Oakland rockers Half Stack, the fast-paced alt-rock of San Francisco-based The Band Ice Cream, and a headlining performance by none other than Oakland mainstay The Younger Lovers (streaming below). When we say the lineup is stacked, we aren’t kidding around.

This event is 21+ and will cost $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Anyone interested can RSVP on Facebook. - Lilly Milman





Still Woozy brings acoustic-influenced indietronica to The Constellation Room tonight (3.24)

Still Woozy is the passion project of the Oakland-based Sven Gamsky, who describes his own music as “electronic/acoustic wooz.” The fuzzy bedroom pop is reminiscent of other indietronica acts like Glass Animals (on their first album), but with his own twist. Gamsky’s brand of mellow pop is upbeat and melodic, but his lyrics are cool and, at times, even enigmatic. His effort to combine the sounds of acoustic and electronic music is paying off; with Still Woozy, he is making the type of pop you don’t mind hearing on repeat. - Lilly Milman, photo by Palmer Morse

Listen to his newest single “Lucy (ft. Odie)” streaming below.
