Cantina
"' Horizons' EP
"
mp3

Cantina is the Italian word for "cellar," the dark and rather cold place where time, wood, air and silence magically transorfm tedious grape juice into inebriating, delicious wine. Cantina is also the name of Renata Zeiguer's growing musical project, a band so quiet that one could say it flirts with silence, and so charming and dreamy to sound magic. Their seven track debut EP 'Horizons' opens with airy ballad 'When Your Eyes,' that sounds like an irresistible siren call coming out of an old wooden gramophone, where a lush, acoustic arrangement slowly overwhelms a melody so pristine it could only be conceived in the the squalid corners of Bushwick. All we can gather from the lyrics is: "and if you ask me to..." - which is really all a siren should say to a hungover NYC-life sailor. The rest of the record offers similar atmospheres, althought at times more upbeat ('Stay Like This') and more electric ('Fields') but always dominated by Renata's celestial soprano and her otherworldly melodies, and well supported by an unobtrusive musical background that perfectly serves each song.

Lil Sean Day at PhilaMOCA Aug. 30

When PhilaMOCA’s Eric Bresler first noticed Sean “Lil Sean” Coleman dancing outside during a Mad Decent Block Party a few years ago, it ignited into a friendship that saw Bresler take the mixed media venue’s neighbor under his wing, showing him the ropes. Over the years this mentorship has made Lil Sean an enigmatic presence during many of PhilaMOCA’s events, and the 1st ever Lil Sean Day will be a celebration of his many contributions. Lil Sean will be present for the screening of a short film that he had written, directed, and starred in - UNDERCOVER COPS, which is an homage to his policeman father. Scranton-based comedian/singer Pat Finnerty will also be on hand to perform one of Sean’s favorite songs "Reggae Dog," and PhilaMOCA will unveil their new Lil Sean Mural. Afterwards the event’s namesake will host a music showcase that will include Langor, Mumblr, Pushin’ It 2 The Limit, and Velvet Crayon. PhilaMOCA, 531 N. 12th St, 5pm, $5 - $10 donation, All Ages, - Bill McThrill


Seagulls Record Release Show w/Tutlie at Bourbon & Branch Aug. 30

Hypnotically soothing vocals will be front and center this evening at Bourbon & Branch as a pair of rising local acts in Seagulls and Tutlie are set to perform. Seagulls, who recently signed to Yellow K Records, is celebrating the release of their debut LP Great Pine, which develops texturally rich waves of sound that peacefully crashes upon one’s ears. Utilizing well-honed harmonies and catching folk-dream-pop vibes, the record incorporates swells of steadily building backend, oriented grooves, and refreshing guitar runs. The expanded lineup of twinkling baroque-pop outfit Tutlie envelops finding a balance between intoxicating vocal interplay and pace-determining instrumentation, which adaptively orchestrates a tunnel-like setting. Maryland-based pop-rock/psych hybrid New God, who released a new LP Fireworks via Yellow K Records, fills out what promises to be a harmonious evening. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., $10, 8pm, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Music Video Premiere: RZN8R - Tell Me

Oakland based electronic trap musician, RZN8R has released a new music video entitled, Tell Me. This post modern Alice in Wonderland-esque short film scenerio stars three young women (Melissa Hyatt, Heather Carlson and Katie Mroczek) who gather in a graffiti laced abandoned haven to have a weird psychedelic tea party. Upon drinking a blue elixir, the women's bodies begin to contort in strange ways. Directed by Haylee Warner, the music video is mind altering and RZN8R's music guides you through the tripped out storyline. What more can you want?

If you like what you see, you can check out RZN8R at his upcoming live dates in San Francisco and Oakland.

September 18th — Neck of the Woods – San Francisco
November 7th— Warehouse416 — Oakland

Weekend Warrior, August 29 - September 1

Yes, yes - Budweiser’s Made in America is in town once again (as well as in Los Angeles), but if you’ve been following or are familiar with The Deli Magazine, then you should know that we prefer to experience concerts in a more intimate setting. And you should discover that at the grand opening of Kensington’s Chill Collins Art Space this Saturday, where you’ll find the psych-rock-lovin’ lineup of Drone Ranger, Harsh Vibes, Seismic Thrust, Space Drugs, and Xiannoi. So avoid the crowds this weekend in Center City and support the artists that will appreciate and actually notice that you made it out - enjoy! Chill Collins Art Space, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 8pm, $5, All Ages - Alexis V.

Buzz Alert! Sunflower Bean plays every couple of days: Baby's All Right tomorrow (08.30)

Oh Sunflower Bean, you pretty little rock and rollers, you... What are we gunna do with you?  You're all so fashionable, so fresh and so clean, but your music brings as much color as your look (thank god) - and also some sweat and dirt.  I've attended a good handful of Sunflower Bean shows, and I have to say I'm very glad they released this track out of the bunch in their repertoire.  'Tame Impala' is undoubtedly their favorite band, so much they named a song after them.  "You always say what's on my mind," shreaks Julia Cumming; well Tame Impala is on Sunflower Bean's mind.  The tune contains one of my all time favorite Sunflower Bean breakdowns; about three minutes in, the song slows down and the bass booster on Nick Kivlen's pedal board makes his guitar sound like a synth until the song rides into a wave of psychedelic chaos of noise.  As of late the band has been hitting NYC venues once a week, often selling out places - check em out tonight (08.03) at Baby's All Right and on 09.03 at Bowery Electric. - Jake Saunders

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Psych Rock songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
