Snail Mail tours, plays Union Transfer 07.14 with Waxahatchee and Cayetana

Baltimore indie-rock act Snail Mail is playing Union Transfer on July 14th with DIY favorites Waxahatchee and Cayetana. On Snail Mail's most recent EP, Habit, fuzzed-out and reverb-drenched guitars lay the groundwork for Lindsey Jordan's resonant vocals, which often seem to drift out of painful, nebulous daydreams: "I wanna spend the entire year/Just face down/And on my own time/I wanna waste mine." The show will kick off the band first US tour of the year, followed by a second leg in October. Check out the video for "Thinning" below.  - Ethan Ames





A Deli premiere: Pregnant's video for "Jar of Clay" - see them live at Elbo Room 06.25

Pregnant is the electro/indie-pop brainchild of bizarre Bay Area composer Daniel Trudeau. We are premiering here the official video for "Jar of Clay" from the upcoming album, Duct Tape. The video is a psychedelic collage of kaleidoscopic visuals and lush natural imagery that compliments the unpredictable, Animal Collective-esque composition. Pregnant will bring his quirky and imaginative sound to Elbo Room on June 25th, do not miss it, and watch the video for "Jar of Clay" below! - Ethan Ames





New Track: "Dreaming In The Non-Dream" - Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band

We're still feeling a bit groggy from all the heat and humidity, and to jumpstart this Monday, we have a hauling-ass freight train of jam from Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band! Clocking in at nearly sixteen minutes, "Dreaming In The Non-Dream" is the lead single and title track from their forthcoming record. Forsyth recently shared with NPR that the album was recorded after the last U.S. presidential election as "a way of grappling with that event-slash-calamity" and that the title was inspired by a William S. Burroughs quote: "America is not so much a nightmare as a non-dream. The American non-dream is precisely a move to wipe the dream out of existence. The dream is a spontaneous happening and therefore dangerous to a control system set up by the non-dreamers." With the downsizing of the band to a power trio and the exodus of Nick Millevoi, Dreaming In The Non-Dream is also the first album, since 2013's The Solar Motel, with no second guitarist. "I wanted total control of the guitars on this."





Guerilla Toss unveils two new tracks + talks about gear on Delicious Audio

Brooklyn via Boston avant-punks Guerilla Toss just unveiled two new tracks from their upcoming release on DFA Records, "GT ULTRA" - check them out below. The band is ready to enter the next stage of their career with a full length that steps up the production values by several notches, broadening the act's appeal without affecting the "edge factor" that allowed them to build a cult following since they started releasing wildly experimental, dissonant and noisy records back in 2012. Our sister blog Delicious Audio is running a Q&A with Guerilla Toss' about their gear and creative process, check it out!





New The Lunar Year LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

The Lunar Year just released their debut full-length album Herodias today. Led by Katie Burke’s dynamic vocals, the band ponders literary themes and muses over youthful memories, intertwining the delicate with the dramatic. These songs serve as a series of snapshots, which upon reflection, create a captivating storyline. South Philly's Boot & Saddle will be hosting the quartet’s record release show on Saturday, July 1, where they will be supported by Rosu Lup and The Chairman Dances.
