July 2014
Peter Matthew Bauer
"Liberation!
"
mp3
Thank God The Walkmen are on a “hiatus.” As unpopular a statement as that might be to fans of the beloved indie-rock outfit, the resulting album, Liberation! (Mexican Summer), by the group’s former bassist Peter Matthew Baur reinforces the truth behind what I think. Baur has taken the time as a chance to expand his wingspan creatively, producing an album that’s slick, resonant and infectiously psychedelic.
 
It’s a heady journey through the artist’s far-from-normal life, never lacking in emotion and fundamentally based in a sense of optimism. Also, one of the most fascinating things going on with Liberation! is how it blends local and international aesthetics without ever feeling like appropriation or pandering. Songs such as “I Was Born in an Ashram” and “Philadelphia Raga” feel organic and refreshing, incorporating exotic influences without ever making them feel awkwardly placed or unnecessary.
 
The whole effort is the culmination of a meditative post-“hiatus” tour through Europe, and it shows. The record is relaxed and casual yet exploratory, never seeming to break a sweat while being thoroughly entertaining. The collection of songs has a comforting accessibility reminiscent of couchbound evenings of honesty-filled, drunken/stoner chats with your best buddies, which may seem to come few and far between as all of us get older and busier. - Daniel Ludwig

This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

Amanda X Record Release Show at Philadelphia Record Exchange July 26

Cat Park, Kat Bean, and Tiff Yoon, the garage-pop punk trio otherwise known as Amanda X, celebrates the release of their debut full-length album Amnesia, via local beloved indie label Siltbreeze Records, this evening at Philadelphia Record Exchange in Fishtown. The group's tight-knit attitude transfers over to their songs, demonstrating a well-rehearsed, all-on-the-same-page focus, which is an inherent strength. Amanda X continues to evolve, grow and gain strength, displaying an honest emotional side, vocally and with those wicked, sneaky guitar lines. Amnesia was recorded by Uniform Recording's Jeff Zeigler (The War on Drugs, Kurt Vile, Nothing, etc.).

Nightmom departs on August tour

Forget the dads of the day. Nightmom is heading out on an extensive tour following the release of the double single “Domino/Girlswamp” last month – but before you see them live, make sure to download the Providence duo's trippy new singles on Bandcamp for a foggy foray in experimental psychedelic rock. The tour begins and ends in the band’s hometown, but will take them as far as Texas and British Colombia, Canada. Tour dates are still being confirmed, so keep tabs on their Bandcamp page or Facebook for the latest updates. – Jake Reed (@jakejreed)

Jonathan Timm EP Release Show 7.26

Jonathan Timm released "These Hours" on cassette as a teaser for his upcoming EP.  The title track is vignette of haunting electric guitar and swoops of lapsteel; a perfect slice of moodiness and desolation. It's one of those trust-establishing tracks that hooks into you, and opens up your ears to whatever else he's created.  The other three tracks on the tape range from more brooding Americana to full-on traditional country, all crafted with a steady hand.  He's a seasoned perfomer with several trips across the US under his belt, so his Saturday EP Release show at Mad Donna's promises to be entertaining.  Listen to the "These Hours" below. -Terra James-Jura
