Ambrose shows us that prog rock and psychedelia are a worthy combination

 "Lance" is a fun song. So is "Green." But if you actually listen to their new record Adama from top to bottom, you'll see that Ambrose is interested in a lot of different emotions- and their music has become an exploration of sorts. "Lance" is an upbeat trippy rock song, whereas "Circle" puts you in a haze and then flings you into wild and groovy guitar solos. Perhaps Nashville folks get down to Ambrose the way Berliners get funky with techno. Anyhow- I'm having a solo-rave to this album in my apartment. -Geena Kloeppel

New Track: "SR 2K18 sorry" - Brown Rainbow

Brown Rainbow's new single, “SR 2K18 sorry,” is an unexpected, pleasant surprise. The song self-disparages as a low-key melody finds its place. Coming to grips/recognizing one's shortcomings, the recording kinda bums you out but in a familiar, self-loathing way. Slow-burning honesty hits overdrive as a fiery guitar jam arises, before returning to its mellow beginnings. Welcome the hypnotic haze as it washes over you.

A Deli Premiere: Locus Pocus's apocalyptic self-titled LP

Earlier this year, The Deli SF had the pleasure of premiering the single “Doctor’s Doctor” from San Francisco’s jangly psych outfit Locus Pocus. Now, the five-piece is back — but this time, with a full-length, self-titled LP, which The Deli SF is happy to be premiering once again.

Collectively, the band explained: “Locus Pocus (originally titled Cool Color Happiness) is about finding meaning and wellness amidst feelings of isolation and doom.” Although the same psychedelic side that appears in earlier releases comes out in tracks like “Game To Lose” and “Cool Color Happiness,” others — like opening track “Getting Creepy” or the central “Big White Car” — set a decidedly more punk tone for this apocalyptic record (note: the release date, June 6 at 6 a.m.) This fast-paced, frenzied release is a very welcome surprise from a band that has already managed to create a name for itself in the Bay Area scene. Locus Pocus will be playing an album release show at Cafe du Nord on June 29. - Lilly Milman

Stream the record in its entirety below, before it becomes available on all streaming platforms later today.

New Track: "Half-Light" (Feat. Kelly Zutrau) (Instupendo Remix) - Rostam

Philly sound sculptor Instupendo, a.k.a. Aidan Peterson, recently shared a remix of former Vampire Weekend member Rostam’s “Half Light,” the title track off his new album, which is out now via Nonesuch Records. It is featured on EP1, a remix collection of songs from his debut release. While retaining its intimate illumination, additional futuristic warmth enters the fray, bubbling to the surface. The delicate march of keys circles and serves as a further catalyst of motion. That tight, ballad groove transitions into a spacious, shimmering dreamscape that manages to outshine the original.
