New Pauline EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

With their latest EP Sundowner (which was engineered, mixed, and produced by Shelf Life's Scotty Leitch), the trio of Pauline stirs up a concoction of brooding, booming, harmony-laced rock. Slowly percolating under dim lights, the tight compositions still exhibit some bite. Catch them this evening at The Pharmacy with Doggo, Past Life, and Shakusky!

Breanna Barbara brings her folkedelic blues rock to Sunnyvale on 10.27

With her third release Mirage Dreams, Brooklyn-based (via Minnesota and Florida) Breanna Barbara has put out an uber confident record that defies time and space. Her peculiar blend of blues, folk, and psychedelia transports us to the west coast in the summer of 1968. Yet, the word revival sounds reductive here: behind the familiar overdriven organs, twangy guitars, and expanded jams, live rare intensity and power. The album title track (streaming below) perfectly examplifies this artist's - quite literally - howling fervor. Don’t miss your chance to see her live at Sunnyvale on October 27, where she'll bring her tales of melancholy dreams, delusions, and demons.

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

Exclusive Austin Deli Premiere: Blood Pumps release 'Long Gossip' off new EP

Blood Pumps comfortably blends smart song craft with interesting, accessible angularity; subtle counter points rhythmically and melodically with intelligent, almost-too-smart-for-pop lyricism delivered with Bill Stevenson's elastic tenor. The marriage of Black Joe Lewis' gut bucket guitar with Mike Brinley's dry-cleaned guitar stands in direct contrast to the washed out reverb and effects heavy sound of many contemporaries in the rock'n'roll scene. All of these ingredients and brush strokes are tied together by an analog beat machine that Stevenson used to record material in between tours of his normal gig backing up Joe.

The five songs on Blood Pump's EP display the prowess of three individuals applying themselves outside their comfort zone. Their new release,"Long Gossip", comes out in a stratling cacophany then cracks into a mid-tempo 3/4 groove then slyly resets int a 4/4 groove right as the guitar's quick-cat-lash vertical intro lines delve into Ric Ocasek territory.

New Track: "Spinning" - Balance and Composure

Light We Made, the new album from Balance and Composure that was produced by Will Yip, will be released on October 7 via Vagrant Records. It’s latest single, “Spinning,” is propelled by the backend interplay of percussion and bass as emotive, reflecting, calm vocals drift through the melody. The band is slated for a November 18th lineup at Union Transfer with Mercury Girls and Foxing.

CROWN LANDS - "BEING RIGHT" PREMIERE!

Current Band of the Month here at the Deli - Crown Lands have done up a live-off-the-floor video for their tune "Being Right" at Rattlebox Studios. This video gives you a glimpse of how these 2 fellas make their huge sound. Cody Bowles rocks the drums very solid and consistent and he howls at the same time with a Wolfmother feel to his voice. Kevin Comeau on guitar and bass pedals is very impressive and it seems his multi-tasking is key to the full sound this 2 piece band produces. I'm often skeptical about 2 piece bands but Crown Lands have figured out something special. They will be at Hard Luck Bar on Thursday September 29 with The Kerouacs, Big Lonely and The Ballroom Babies. Here is a link to that event. Enjoy the video. - Kris Gies
