The Deli's CD of the Month: Tremble the Sails - Buried Beds

It’s hard not to listen to Buried Beds’ sophomore album, Tremble the Sails, without wondering how a duo-to-quintet from West Philadelphia could craft such an exuberant ‘60s AM pop record. Offered as a donation-only digital download and for-sale physical release, the folk-pop outfit’s follow-up to 2006’s Empty Rooms is an unswerving love affair with sun-lit harmonies and pastoral melodies - from the swelling opener “Steady Hands” to the playful piano-heavy “Breadcrumb Trails” and all the satiated musical passages in between (i.e. “Your Modern Age”). But what’s best about Tremble the Sails is the lack of continuity in its consistency. Mixed by The Spinto Band’s Nick Krill, the overall delicate charm of Buried Beds’ latest effort is affably rattled by expressive upsurges of satiated symphonies, like on the melancholy Beatles-esque “Mother”, and bittersweet “Grandma’s Bow”. And if only one thing can be said about Tremble the Sails, it’s that it represents the better parts of this city - where underneath streets dusted with tension and grit, there’s a hidden beacon of hopefulness. - Annamarya Scaccia

Night Train with Blood Feathers at KFN July 1

It’s another Night Train dance party tonight at Kung Fu Necktie with special guests Blood Feathers and hosts Ian St. Laurent and Dennis Wolffang. Blood Feathers are the first and lone act signed to the fledgling Philebrity Label. They play traditional upbeat rock ‘n roll with catchy pop hooks, adorned with sweet twangy blues guitar alluding to some deep southern roots, as demonstrated best in their song, “Great God Almighty”. Running the road, knee-shaking kisses, black and white photographs, and your grandmother’s broach will all remind you of their traditional yet universal songs. Their crowd-pleasing sound will certainly be rockin’ the stage this evening! Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 10pm, $5, 21+ - Katie Bennett

Univox Droppin’ the Lethal Harmonies at KFN June 30

Frenetic and robust rock locals Univox are coming to Kung Fu Necktie tonight. Many of their songs show the bands vocal versatility with four different members taking turns rockin’ the mic. Each voice distributes their energy in different ways highlighting the many strengths and vast post-pop sensibilities. I prefer the baritone who muses over the frantic sounds of “Everybody Knows”. By the looks of them it is the extra large Josh ‘The Mongolian” Jones who is responsible for the voice, but big things come in little packages no matter what that bitch said the other night. They can create scrappy garage rock in the vein of the Stooges or barnstorm with the best of them. They’ll be joining experimental noise-pop outfit Hermit Thrushes. Univox are currently promoting their debut ST album on NY’s indie label ROIR. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 8pm, $8, 21+ (Photo by Dennis Manzanedo)- Adam G.

Cold Cave & Vile Join Reunited Guided by Voices at Matador’s B-Day Party!

It’s no surprise that newbies to the Matador family Cold Cave and Kurt Vile will be part of the label’s 21st Birthday Party showcase lineup in Las Vegas Oct 1-3, but no one probably expected Guided by Voices ("the classic '93 - '96 lineup") would reunite for this momentous occasion. They’ll also be joined by indie heavyweights and buzz acts like Pavement, Sonic Youth, Belle & Sebastian, Spoon, Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, the New Pornographers, Girls, Superchunk, Ted Leo & the Pharmacists, Guitar Wolf, Fucked Up, Shearwater, Harlem, Cold Cave, Kurt Vile, Jeffrey Joe Jenson, and many more to be announced. Looks like Matador will be doing their 21st birthday right in Sin City! Hopefully no hookers will die at this party. - Q.D. Tran
