The Deli LA introduces 'The Weekly Special'

Here at the Deli, sometimes it's good to change the menu around. I'm excited to announce a yummy little experiment called The Weekly Special.

What is it? Simple! Each week we'll be showcasing some of the tastiest tunes from the LA scene downloadable for FREE right here on The Deli LA's blog.

Bands, submit your stuff to deli.la.submissions@gmail.com to be featured when we roll out the menu next week. Attach an mp3 (192kbps or better) along with a sentence or two and a link to your website.

If you're hungry now, you can snack on a few of the tunes in the Open Blog


The Material is in the studio

The Material

If you've played Rock Band, chances are you've come across the downloadable song "Moving To Seattle" by The Material. These unsigned rockers, who hail from LA and San Diego, are in the studio hard at work on their upcoming album full of well crafted rock tunes. If their previous work is any indication, they may just be the be the best band you've never heard of. They'll be touring all summer but you can catch them Thursday, June 24th at the The Troubadour with headliners Every Avenue.


The Like's Latest Video "He's Not a Boy"

I wish I were the first to report that The Like are pretty terrific and worthy of your discerning ears.  Alas, I am not.  Z Berg, an Edie Sedgewick doppleganger fronts the band and plays guitar.  Tennessee Thomas plays the drums, Laena Geronimo plays bass and Annie Morgan holds it down on the organ.  Their latest video for "He's Not A Boy" is a testament to enviable mod styling and lighthearted pop music.  I think you should give it a listen.


De Signer to release their new LP, Nous Nous, this summer

Seriously, no one is looking at you, it's okay to dance in your chair when you watch this video. French transplants and LA natives come together in De Signer to make killer electropop with an international flair. The group is poised to release their third LP, Nous Nous, this summer.
