Party at the Spare Room Tonight for The Wild Body's EP Release

The Spare Room on NE 42nd doesn't do many shows but when they do, they're worth checking out. Tonight's show will be eclectic, fun and free, which are the three best qualities a show could possible offer.

We're finally getting The Wild Body EP release we've all been waiting for. The cassette will come with quite a few versions of artwork to choose from, so if you find yourself a fan of their experimental post-punkcore dream rock (which you should be), you'll have your pick of the litter while supplies last, of course!

A bit of fun from Karaoke Star, the improv project from Cat Hoch and Bryson Cone, will be kicking off tonight's entertainment, with the gazey garage stylings of The Tamed West closing the night out.

Music starts at 9pm, so be sure to show up on time before the place packs up!

Stream Astro Tan's 'Canary,' Out Today

Dual guitars, primo percussion and an interesting blend of jazz, psych, r&b and indie rock have propelled local trio Astro Tan into the hearts of music lovers around town for the last couple years now. A few EPs here, a couple free released singles there, Astro Tan haven't given us a full length's worth of the trippy soul we've all been waiting for, until now.

Canary, out today, pulls a few previously released tracks and throws them in with some newer ones like "The Jetsons," a wispily melodic tune relating modern life and love to the animated quips of the old school futuristic cartoon of the same name. It shows Astro Tan taking what they do best to the next level.

Stream Canary below and be sure to check out Astro Tan's album release show on the 28th at the Doug Fir with Tango Alpha Tango and Taylor Kingman before they head on tour in mid-March.

Portland's Best in Psych and Shoegaze: Zozma and Cat Hoch

Our more trippy genre poll, psych and shoegaze, ran gazed out slow fuzz with the strange visuals psychedelia forces your mind to make. The two winners all of you felt rocked 2016 honestly come as no surprise, since they've been packing venues and mesmerized crowds all throughout the last year. Big congratulations go out to Zozma and Cat Hoch! Both of these names are of course familiar in the Deli Portland world, because our Deli readers have brought them to the top before.

We've thought of Zozma as one of the best psych acts in Portland for awhile now. All of you voted them as our Artist of the Month back in September of last year, so seeing them as the winner of our readers' poll solidifies their stance as the rulers of our spiritual psych world.

This also isn't the first Deli success Cat Hoch and her band have seen with the Deli either. She came out on top entirely in 2015, when she was voted the Best Emerging Artist of that year. From opening up for Ride to commanding even bigger stages, Cat Hoch and her talented group of musicians aren't stopping anytime soon.

The Deli's Best Emerging Philly Psych Pop/Rock Artist: The Dove & The Wolf!

After compiling the jurors', readers'/fans' and writers' votes for The Deli Philly's Best Emerging Psych Pop/Rock artists, congrats to The Dove & The Wolf! Paloma Gil and Louise Hayat-Camard had already started making a name for themselves under the moniker with the release of their debut self-titled EP and and tours with Rachael Yamagata and Butch Walker. After a transformative experience, while being in Paris during the Bataclan terrorist attack, the ladies were eventually able to renew their visas and return home to Philly. Inspired by their experiences during those troubling times, the duo eventually teamed up with Dave Hartley (The War on Drugs) and Nick Krill (The Spinto Band) to record the moving I Don't Know What To Feel. And what was originally self-released as a five-song EP has now expanded to seven, and will be reissued on March 24 via Fat Possum so this victory looks to be just the start of what should be another memorable year for The Dove & The Wolf - hopefully in a much better way.

Runner-up Japanese Breakfast and honorable mention recipients Carroll are also worthy of your adoration, but also check out the rest of our talented nominees that made this year's list! (Photo by Sidney Bensimon)

New Stinking Lizaveta Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

It's been nearly half a decade since we've had a new album from Philly's stoner metal power trio Stinking Lizaveta. For the group's follow-up to 2012's The Seventh Direction, the band traveled to the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana to record Journey to the Underworld at "Nosferatus' Lair" Studio. Guitarist Yanni Papadopoulos shared with the UK blog, The Sludgelord, "We wanted to record in New Orleans because of the demonic musical energy one feels down there... At the bottom of the Mississippi you get an underworld feel, like the spirits are all alive and ready to commune with you. Maybe it's Voodoo, or just the deep musical culture." You can stream and purchase Journey to the Underworld, which is available via Translation Loss Records, below.
