April 2016
Ghost King
"'Bones'
"
mp3

Hailing from The Bronx and led by Spires' drummer Carter McNeil, Ghost King plays muddy fuzz rock brightened by unexpected chord changes, psychedelic overtones, and a '90s rock inspired lo-fi production that blends the fun attitude of Violent Femmes, the stellar songwriting of The Pixies and the slacking tendencies of Pavement. Early psych rock influences emerge here and there in their debut album 'Bones' (check out the rather Barretesque 'Bones pt. 1,' or the chorus explosion of 'When the Sky Turns blue' - streaming below), enriching the sonic palette in ways rarely accomplished, in a single record, without it sounding... all over the place. But beyond the familiar and beloved references to the past, what makes this album great is its consistently brilliant songwriting, and the band's habit of taking the listener in and out of unexpected places, like for example with the dissonant riffs of 'Skeleton Dance' 's intro, which slowly morphs into a perfectly consonant verse, or through the bizarre development of ''Til You Belong to Me' or 'Bones pt. 2.'

¨I want to build a community of like-minded artists in the Bay Area. We'll be featuring bands, artist, projections, dancers, djs and public speakers talking about the real issues in SF and what we can do about them. The Residency is starting to become a staple and cult classic in our thriving Bay Area music scene. I loved how hard it was to pick which acts to have on the lineups. There are so many talented bands in the Bay that I actually had to add two dates to accommodate the amount of bands. I could easily could have had a year long DDS Residency.

My expectations for this years residency is to inspire more people to become apart of the Bay Area music scene. I would like to attend more local shows after this month and have the residency artists collaborate and network long after this residency.¨ -Kyle DeMartini of Down Dirty Shake

Tapping into a variety of backing tracks built around jazz, soul, island, etc., the songs offer an advantageous variety, while exhibiting a common thread. It’s smooth and slinky, yet constantly shifting.

Psychic Twin releases single "Lose Myself" + plays Rough Trade on 6/24

Alongside a new lead single, Psychic Twin unveiled a September 9th drop date for their debut LP Strange Diary, that's been four years in the making. If the track, entitled "Lose Myself" is any indication, it might have been worth the wait. Erin Fein, vocalist and main force behind the project, immerses her feathery voice in grimy synths and drum machine grooves to create a contrasting synth-pop sound that feels fresh while still delivering a nice dose of nostalgia. Psychic Twin recently kicked off a North American tour with Ladyhawke, whose NYC leg will be at Rough Trade on 6.24. –Henry Solotaroff-Webber - Photo Credit: Sean Waltrous

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

While Katie Crutchfield gets ready for her reunion tour with sis Allison and the rest of P.S. Eliot, we also now have a collection of her earlier works under her moniker Waxahatchee, aptly titled Early Recordings. “At first I was tentative about re-listening to these recordings, but the nostalgia I felt when re-hearing them was warm, and I thought it might be nice to make them available again,” said Crutchfield. The album is now available via Merge Records, and you can stream it below.
