Fellow Wolf Releases New Music Video + Plays BOTH - 1/13

The San Francisco based "ambient fuzz-rock band", Fellow Wolf has released a crisp new music video for their single, The Bluebird.

"We rented the camera which shot the highest quality slow motion that we could afford. The location is a local San Francisco dive bar. We filled it with friends from close until sunrise. Everyone stayed, but mostly because we didn’t let them leave." - Christopher Drellow of Fellow Wolf

We like this song and the music video is very interesting to watch! Make sure you continue to support local artists and attend their upcoming show at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco on January 13 with Sea Knight and Ghost Tiger.

Boston's Du Vide plays Middle East in Cambridge on Tuesday (12/22)

Just a month ago, Boston “sad math” trio Du Vide released its ferociously minimal latest effort, ‘clutter.’ Comprised of such genre-melding tracks as the jazz-bedroom pop blend, “the hell it is” and the folk-inflected “a sharp inhale” (streaming below), the intriguingly murky piece shows Du Vide to be a group who, as Youth Lagoon did on his brilliant debut, ‘The Year of Hibernation,’ conveys inner ennui with compassionate force. Du Vide plays Middle East-Upstairs in Cambridge, Massachussetts on Tuesday, 12/22. - Zach Weg

SuXess Releases New Tunes, Gets Drunk, Falls Down

 Take the spirit of 80’s glam rock, mixed it with a heaping helping of punk, and add just enough funky rockabilly-alternative, and you get SuXess. Their recently released song, Got Drunk, Fell Down, starts off with some seriously heavy drums and fun guitar riffs, and as it goes on I can’t help but think of bands like Kiss, Def Leppard, and maybe even a hint of Mudhoney, right down to the self-effacing lyrical content. And that chorus is catchy as hell. The B-side, Sleeping in the Street, throws some twangy guitars in that give it a real bluesy-country sound, which works really well here. I’ll definitely be jamming out to both of these tracks for a while, and I recommend you check them out on their Bandcamp page, then catch Suxess at the Silver Dollar Room on January 21st.

The Dizzease's First Album is Infectiously Cute Indiepunk

Like a really cute carving knife you’d find on Pinterest, The Dizzease is adorable with an edge, and they’ve just put out a fun-as-fuck eponymous debut album that you need to hear if cute badasses are your thing. We stumbled across these guys about a week ago at a show at the very nice Wake the Dead coffee shop/venue in San Marcos, and they pretty much stole the night with their high-energy surfy/punk cute songs about things like a cute girl at a grocery store and one of those goofy sticky hand things you get from coin machines.

Lo and behold, these guys dropped all of the songs they played and more on their Bandcamp just days after that show, and it makes for one of the most instantly likeable albums of the year for the area. The coin-machine goodies-based “Sticky Hand” is a true standout track, just about as fun and pared-down as you can get for a twee-ish punk track, and that’s whether or not it actually IS a ridiculously cute metaphor for masturbation (we at The Deli offices here can’t decide if that was the intention, or if we’re just total creeps). The rest of the album is a mix of being totally adorable and lighthearted (there’s literally a track about how awesome one of their dogs is, and it’s actually really fun) and having a bit of a non-mainstream edge, such as track “Grocery Store Girl” which takes the “cute indie crush” song archetype and makes the gender sexual orientation of the crush-haver totally irrelevant (yay 2015!).

In all, this cutepunk effort feels fresh, authentic, adorable and not a bit affected, a four-punch combo that’s really damn hard to do in this cynical, self-aware age, and it’s an album you really should give a shot. If you got a heart, and especially if you feel nostalgic for the simple romance of your rebellious teens, this shit will give you all sorts of goodtime, happy day feels.

Get on it below, and if you’re in the area of their current tour, definitely go see these guys live. We can personally guarantee, they’ll put on a show that’ll make your media-chilled dead-ass millennial heart feel … well, things, and shit for once.
