Oberhofer release 7", play Deli CMJ show w/ Keepaway and Bear Hands

Brad Oberhofer’s taught, melodic post-punk has won his musical project, Oberhofer, quite a lot of praise lately, and that praise is warranted, as the music is a frantic, energetic, and ultimately satisfying treat. Each song is laced with manic drums, quirky melody and sharp, angular guitar riffs that give way to pensive moments of xylophone, keys and samples. There’s sing-along “oohs” and “whoa’s,” and choral hooks like that on “Landline” that will never cease being stuck in your head. Comparisons can certainly be made to the likes of Wavves or Beach Fossils, but Oberhofer owes as much to reverb-heavy punk-pop as it does to the carefully crafted indie-pop of Spoon or MGMT. For a bedroom project (complete with a backing band in the live setting), Oberhofer sounds surprisingly huge on record, with layers of instrumentation and vocals that belie the solo status of this talented one-man project. The band just announced a 7" release on Inflated Records for November 31 and a tour with The Morning Benders and Twin Sisters. More importantly though, they will be playing The Deli's flagship CMJ show at Brooklyn Bowl on Wednesday October 20 with Bear Hands, Keepaway and Brahms. – W.D.

Where Is My Mind?: Soars

Lehigh Valley’s Soars are made up of Chris Giordani, Anthony Perrett, David Kresge and Brianna Edwards, and just released an impressive self-titled debut album via La Société Expéditionnaire. (You can read The Deli’s recent review of it here.) Having graduated from Lehigh University, I was very excited to pick the brains of the fledgling four-piece about there local music scene and couldn’t help gettin' the skinny on the haps in the Valley where I spent many evenings listening to music and consuming cocktails of toxic substances. Oh college - where did the time go? Well, it was a lot of fun catching up on life in the Valley. Glad to hear that their local music scene is on the rise. You can check out our interview with Soars, one of the bands helping to put it on the map, here!

Your Children is Beautiful at Greenline Café Oct. 8

For a group of grungy hipster kids with influences from David Bowie to Blink 182, Your Children is Beautiful (dig the name) sure sound tame. But I mean that in the-coziest-Friday-night-you-ever-had way. Instead of the usual intoxicated haze and daze, Isaiah Cramer sings with the same contrasting grit and clarity as Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon, occasionally joined by his bandmates for harmonies to induce the same meditative effects as a good THC bath. To compliment their vocals, they spin electronic loops and experimental flourishes a la Black Moth Super Rainbow. Their debut EP Ice Cream will be available soon on cassette (with free download code on back in the off chance you don’t still carry around that walkman your grandmother bought you for your twelfth birthday).
