The Deli LA Presents: Haunted Summer at The Echo Tonight

Mystical duo Haunted Summer have been enchanting audiences each monday during this spook-filled month of October for their residency at The Echo. This coming Monday, to close out the whole shebang, The Deli LA will be presenting the night. Their residency is centered around the release of their EP, ‘Something in The Water.’ Playing songs off the EP as well as new tunes written during their recent honeymoon in Paris, John Seasons and Bridgette Eliza Moody, will be backed by a full band. Last week, they debuted the live version of a former B-side, “Ain’t One,” which is streaming below. It was a showstopper, featuring Moody’s light-as-air vocals soaring above the band’s signature psyched-out sound design experimentation. The line-up for the final week is stellar, featuring a Deli Mag favorite, Touché, who we reviewed earlier this year, alongside recent singees to Innovative Leisure whose music has mysteriously evaporated from the interweb, De Lux, as well as densely, spaced-out newcomers, Historian. It’s sure to be one of those epic, celebratory evenings made for re-telling. Head to The Echo’s site for more info and set times. - Jacqueline Caruso

Stream: Touché, “I’m A Man Not A Machine”

Touché, the duo of Alex Lilly and Bram Inscore, create electro pop that touches on both the dreamy and the danceable. Deliciously synth-heavy, beat driven pop tunes with just the right amount of winking and nodding to ensure you’re having a good time, their debut LP It’s Fate is set for release May 1. With a string of tour dates supporting Twin Shadow, the buzz is sure to be high leading up to their glorious hometown return at The Fonda on June 29. Having just had the pleasure of catching their live set at the Echoplex on Monday, this is certainly a duo to watch. Their light-hearted, quirky showmanship belies the intricate and inspired craftsmanship that is required to pull off a project that could easily become campy or stale. The single, “I’m A Man Not A Machine,” is a clear standout with just the right amount of referential stylings and one of the best hooks that have come across our desks this year. Stream the track below and catch them if you can at what are sure to be sold out shows at the Echoplex May 10 or The Fonda June 29. - Jacqueline Caruso
