NRVS LVRS Share New Single - I Am Almost Perfectly Awake

San Francisco-based band NRVS LVRS is the dreamy darkwave project of husband & wife duo Andrew Gomez and Bevin Fernandez. Today the band revealed their new single, I Am Almost Perfectly Awake from their sophomore album Electric Dread out June 30th.

"'I Am Almost Perfectly Awake' is inspired by Clive Wearing, a musicologist who suffers from severe amnesia and experiences life anew from moment to moment, as if he is waking from a coma every twenty seconds. The title was taken from a line he repeatedly wrote in his diary, and we kept coming back to the phrase and how searching & sad it sounded. Trying to imagine living life with no memories had us trying to unpack so many different thoughts: how our identities are tied to our memory, how scary it must be to wake up not knowing who or where you are hundreds of times a day, and how the loss of a memory is a kind of death. While writing the album, we were dealing with quite a bit of death and loss in our own lives, so the idea of someone who is still physically present yet missing their identity resonated as a mirror image of the grief we were experiencing."

NRVS LVRS' record release show is in San Francisco at Bottom Of The Hill on June 30th.

Bellows tour with Big Ups + talk about their guitar, pedals & synths on Delicious Audio

Bellows is the bedroom project of Brooklyn songwriter/guitarist/producer Oliver Kalb, an ex member of now defunct NYC collective of songwriters collaborating with each other called The Epoch. Active with this solo project since the beginning of the decade, Oliver has developed a sound that's at once melodic, edgy and delicately textured. Latest and third LP 'Fist & Palm' showcases a preference for intimate atmospheres (at times reminiscent of Elliot Smith's whispered folk-pop) and an effort to explore new sonic territories. The band just announced an east coast tour with hardcord punks Big Ups (strange pairing!) and unveiled a new video for single 'Spring, Summer, Autums and Winter' - streaming below the one for our favorite track from the latest album, 'Thick Skin.'

Check out Bellows interview with Delicious Audio about Pedals and Synths.

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

Weekend Warrior May 12 - 14

 An immediate, determined sense of soulful urgency drips from Sheer Mag. Shrouded in sticky grooves united with decisively climbing guitar licks, the band seizes the opportunity, gathering the collective energy within the room and harnessing it into an exhibition, showcasing the duality, when vulnerability transforms into power. Fresh off the announcement of their forthcoming debut full-length Need to Feel Your Love, which will be available on July 16 via Static Shock Records, the former Deli Philly Artist(s) of Year bring their rippin' and roarin' chew ‘em up and spit ‘em out rock 'n' roll to First Unitarian Church this Saturday. The melodic, fuzz-speckled, bass-thumping garage-punk of Marge help to fortify this billing, which also includes Vancouver’s Weed.
 
Meanwhile, over at PhilaMOCA on the same evening, the bright, bubbling, psych-venturing pop of six-piece collective Circadian Rhythms gently stacks instrumental layers, melding refreshingly with its slightly off-kilter arrangements. The band will be celebrating its new record, A Peculiar Kind of Afternoon, supported by the sunny instrumentals of R.R. Perkins and the casually cloudy exploits of Mavis the Dog. - Michael Colavita
