Mad electropop scientists Superhumanoids performs new album at El Rey Theatre 10/14

It seems only yesterday that the Los Angeles trio Superhumanoids sculpted cane sugar citadels in the EP "Parasite Paradise", after their new wave adrenaline debut "Urgency" in 2010. When The Deli last spoke with the band, singer/guitarist Cameron Parkins admitted to indulging in "our more pronounced production traits," remixing tracks from Local Natives, Xiu Xiu, New Beat Fund, and more. Then in 2013, Superhumanoids went molecular and built tones from scratch in the charged LP Exhibitionists, only to mutate their sophomore game two years later with the confident electropop nightwalk Do You Feel OK? At this point it's pretty clear that Sarah Chernoff's voice goes well with everything — even copious amounts of gamma radiation.

So it's not just that we like Superhumanoid's diverse and uniquely superhuman sound.

We really like Superhumanoids' shared devotion to secret-formula serums, and occasionally exposing their friends' tracks to mutagenic chemicals.

We like that they're throwing a homecoming party to end their Fall Tour, with Blackbird Blackbird and Rush Midnight on Wednesday, 10/14 at The El Rey Theatre.

But what we like most about Superhumanoids: their songs are always free to stream online. Seriously. - Ryan Mo

San Francisco based Blackbird Blackbird released a stellar EP that seems to have gone relatively unnoticed.

Blackbird Blackbird Releases New Mix, EP Out in October

If you asked me the last song worthy of another remix, I'd say Adele's "Rolling In The Deep." Yet, San Francisco's moody, trip-hop-gazer Blackbird Blackbird pulls it off. Listen and download here.

Mikey Maramag aka Blackbird Blackbird landed on every blog's best list with his debut album Summer Heart. Just back from European tour, Blackbird Blackbird has signed to San Francisco label Lavish Habits, which will release his new EP Boracay Planet on October 16. Until then, his original mix "Happy With You" will keep you dancing.
