New Track: "Wake Up" - Camp Candle

Atmospheric keys reverberate, merging with calming vocals as a steady percussive wave rolls in Camp Candle’s “Wake Up”. The electro-pop duo develops a meditative state of osmosis that gradually lifts you into alert mode. They'll be performing at Kung Fu Necktie on Friday, April 1, with Vincent Remember, Groceries Store, and Virtual Girls.

Oakland's Daywave Plays SXSW 2016

Having only begun his journey in 2015, Jackson Philips left his pop band, Carousel, to become a solo instrumentalist under the name Day Wave. Drawing heavily from a Beach Boy’s sound that is tinged with new wave influences, Jackson Philips has created a lush atmosphere of music that exudes Summertime vibes. Although he has not released an official full-length album yet, there will definitely be some buzz around Day Wave at SXSW 2016. -From The Deli Magazine's Current SXSW Print Issue

New Music Video: "Walk Like An Egyptian" (The Bangles Cover) - Queen of Jeans

So often, your mom is your first and biggest fan, and while it might be natural, it’s often underappreciated. In Queen of Jeans's new video for their take on The Bangles classic "Walk Like An Egyptian," the group flips the script as their moms take center stage. Bob Sweeney captures the playful, heart-warming footage, showcasing how the moms can rock, while also returning the love. Queen of Jeans (and probably their biggest fans) will be at Ortlieb’s this Saturday, March 26, with The Morelings and The Stargazer Lilies. (Photo by Kelly Kurteson)

Pure, Unadulterated Indie Rock on Polymer's "Avery South"

True indie rock, with the focus on the rock, isn't as common in 2016 as it once was, but local band Polymer has been bucking that trend for the past few years with their brand of music that's all guitars, drums, vocals and little else. To some synth lovers, that description might sound negative, but we at The Deli think there's something to be said for a band that cuts itself down to the barest essentials needed and comes out of the studio with a finely prepared track. "Avery South" is fun and fast in the strumming, pure slacker in the vocals and lyrics, and has that good janglefuzz from your favorite 90s/2000s indie bands that you still jam all the time; in other words, it's good stuff for anyone into indie rock. Listen below, rockists of the hill country.
