Half Waif tours with Pinegrove + plays Market Hotel on 08.06

With her latest project, Half Waif's Nandi Rose Plunkett has successfully bridged the ever-growing chasm between "avant" and pop, taking Radiohead's lesson to a more intimate and less pretentious place. The band's sophomore album 'Probable Depths" is an intriguing blend of synth and orchestral pop full of texture and otherworldly melodies. Half Waif will be back in Brooklyn performing as a trio on June 6th at the Market Hotel, to the end of their ongoing tour throughout the US. —Henry Solotaroff-Webber

Earth Heart to release debut LP on 8/5

While the two are often correlated, it's not always necessary for music that's catchy to be pristine as well. Boston band Earth Heart is a prime example of this: with their shout-sung vocals, swampy drums and lo-fi guitars, they do their darn best to produce a sound that's abrasive, but thanks to the great songwriting, their music is still very satisfying. While mostly sticking to this garage pop sound on their previous tracks, such as recent single "Homesick" (streaming below), the Boston trio has shown the ability to pull off more "avant" stuff as well, like in their nearly nine minute track "BURN" from 2014. This versatility and talent should make their debut LP, due on 8/5, interesting to say the least. Earth Heart also made an appearance on WEMF radio's Sticky Hits program on 5/28, and will be performing live at the pin Out of the Blue Too Art Gallery on July 13th. - Henry Solotaroff-Webber





New Video: Le Révélateur (Trailer) - Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler

Mary Lattimore & Jeff Zeigler have a new LP coming out, called Music Inspired by Phillippe Garrel’s Le Révélateur. It's an original soundtrack/score for the short experimental film that is meant to capture the civil unrest occurring in Paris in May, 1968, which lead to a virtual halt of the French economy. The footage was purposely left silent. The album comes out on July 22 via Thrill Jockey, and the duo, who premiered the live soundtrack, along with the movie, in February at the Getty Museum in LA and has already performed it twice in Philly, will be bringing the event to Brooklyn on Tuesday, July 26 at the Nitehawk Cinema. Check out the beautiful trailer for the collaboration below!

Exclusive Deli Austin Premiere: Strange Mother "Young Buck EP"

The Deli Austin is superduper pumped up to bring you lovers of music, especially those with a taste for something a little off-kilter, one hell of a premiere today! From that quirky band that used to be named after Persian stew, and which now goes by Strange Mother, comes the delightfully dynamic Young Buck EP.

This here record is four tracks of gleeful oddball indie pop, its influences and genres all swirled together in a mad pop music science experiment run by a pack of giddy, ultra-talented weirdos. You'll hear bits of tejano, a ballroom jazzy thing, some avant 70s rock noisiness and more, all mixed in with the heavy dose of indie freak rock that is Strange Mother's signature sound. The resulting concoction is a little Deerhoof, a little Evangelicals, a little Man Man, even a little Tull or Zappa, and all good, old-fashioned, full-blown creative experimentation in the form of fun and catchy pop songs.

Like any good weirdo pop, there's a lot to unwrap in Young Buck, if you're looking to dive into something technical, but Strange Mother has also shown (again) with this record that they can make artsy weirdo avant pop that's super accessible and just plain great to jam out to. That's honestly a real damn hard thing to do, and the ease with which these guys accomplish it puts Strange Mother at the front of the pack when it comes to Austin bands that are pushing the envelope, but who can also structure out a seriously complex piece of music.

This is the first this absolutely excellent EP has seen the public, so be one of the first to arrive at this mad party Strange Mother has invited us to by listening below, and check the band out at their Facebook for more from one of Austin's most creatively ambitious and most technically skilled bands right now.
