Fever The Ghost





Fever The Ghost Runner-Up as The Deli LA's 2013 Best Emerging Artist

2013 was certainly the year newly formed, Fever The Ghost, emerged. Quickly rising to the top of every promoter and blogger's year end list of "Ones to Watch," and the like, with their engaging live shows and quirky image. They may have the antics to grab any usually skeptic listeners' attention, but they also have the songs to back up the hype. Psychedelia is at the forefront of their sound, but pop is the glue holding it all together. Their very recently released debut EP, 'Crab In Honey,' is a journey into effects-drenched absurdism akin to early Zappa, but they never go too far astray as to take themselves too seriously. The first single, "Source," is a snappy, upbeat tune with layer upon layer of trippy textures, space-bound synth lines, and beefy guitar riffs. This February see them every Monday at The Detroit Bar for their free month-long residency.

Best of 2013 Poll for Emerging Los Angeles Artists: FINAL RESULTS!

Deli Nation,

Our Year End Poll for Emerging Los Angeles Artists was - as usual - a painstaking (and somewhat excruciating) process, but we pulled it off with remarkable flair! Kudos to Moses Sumney for winning it! 2013 was an exciting and inspiring year for LA's music scene. No one encompassed that more fully than Moses Sumney. We are glad to be able to give him the honor of winning the title. 

Here's how it all went down. First, we let the local bands submit their music (for free), and got our Deli editors to pick the nominees. Then we polled a list of 15+ Los Angeles scene experts (our jury, list at the bottom) and asked them to nominate 3 more bands of their choice each. Then we polled our writers, then we polled our readers. We tried to keep things open for each single genre, from Indie Rock to Roots Music to Hip Hop.

If you are a geek interested in all the subtelties related to how this poll works, you can read its rules here (happy reading!). But if all you care about is the awesome new music Los Angeles produced in the year 2013, this list is all you need. Enjoy!

Fever The Ghost to Release Debut EP, 'Crab in Honey' January 21

There is an undeniable buzz surrounding psych rockers Fever The Ghost. Bursting onto the scene in 2013, their momentum has only increased in the new year. Dazzling audiences with their impressive and engaging live shows has created an intense anticipation for their forthcoming EP, 'Crab in Honey', set for release January 21 on Complicated Game. The quartet mixes a healthy dose of absurdism with deliciously satisfying hooks wrapped inside an acid trip. They seem to have developed the perfect balance of self-awareness and a seriousness for their craft. Stream first single, "Rounder," below and catch them live January 16 at The Bootleg with Nightmare And The Cat, Carina Round and The Peach Kings.
