Stream the Debut Album "Fog of War" by Trillwave Transmigrant China White

Two months have passed since bedroom mystic Jamie Leroux quietly dropped the phantasmagoric three-year successor Visual Underground as Future Holograms. That trillwave release recalled a cathartic time for Detroit-native Leroux, who admits,"The constant change actually influenced the Future Holograms project, due to the longing of all the people I've kept close and how the distance effected me." Moving to San Diego nearly five years ago, the producer spends his first summer back in the Motor City, and has released another album's worth of material, Fog of War, under a new name and a new aura.

White China's first output is as much a virtuous revision to the past incarnations Yokan PopIcosagon, Sun Metal, and more as it is a retrospective nod to hypnagogic auteurs like Gold Panda, XXYYXX, and Clams Casino—caught at a time when dad aesthetics, Drake lyrics, and pastel colors equally conjure sardonic chuckles and nostalgic sighs. 2011 didn't seem that long ago.

Listen to "Let's Fuck Ourselves Over" from White China's debut album Fog of War below and download it for free on Leroux's netlabel/collective Silver Throne Records.

Looking Back to Lawrence Lindell's "Raw Imperfections"

"I don't like to be limited," says Lawrence Lindell in the interview snippet opening up his latest album. Composed of film score-inspired piano pieces, Raw Imperfections is a break away from the experimental artist's comfort zone in electronic music. Lindell knows his way around a keyboard, from the gently-rising beauty in "Eighty Eight" to the urgency of "Unpolished Frequencies"—the album is also dotted with electronic pieces like "Creator", the hip-hop percussion of "Fist, Roots, and Rhythm", and the Baths-inspired glitch beats of "Young King".

The scores on this album range from calming ballads to thumping bouts of anxiety-ridden electronics. It's a wide array of styles which show just how talented Lawrence Lindell is, and serves as a fantastic introduction to his foray into film scores. Listen to "Creator", the second track off Raw Imperfections, below. - Justin Ashby

Listen to Emo Quartet Love Nothing's Newest Single "Have A Great Summer (Calgary)"

Beyond vape memes and that seemingly facetious name, Los Angeles' guilty pleasure Love Nothing boasts guitar crunch and drum blasts heavy enough to break your jaw. The mall goth foursome, fronted by guitarist/vocalist Nicholas Waits, stands at the forefront of revived sincerity in emocore, blending Circa Survive's melodic embrace and Dinosaur Jr.'s neck-hanging, pulverizing tone.

Today, The Deli is proud to premiere their newest single “Have A Great Summer (Calgary)”. Love Nothing throws a release show on July 23 in the Valley (have I ever told you about that valley hospitality?) followed by a tag-team summer tour with Berkeley-ites Forget It. in August, with a homecoming show at The Smell on August 12th. Listen to the newly released “Have A Great Summer (Calgary)” below:

BOYO releases new single "Control", debut album due out 8/26

"Control", the new single by BOYO, is a sauntering psych-pop number that unspools in an unhurried manner. The group incorporates a smooth, Beatlesque chord progression that lulls the listener into passivity with its cosmic folk touch.

This is the first single off of their upcoming record of the same name, which is due out August 26 on Danger Collective Records.
