Stockholm Siesta Drops EP; Takes Hostage Of Our Hearts & Innocence

 For some reason, I thought that good pop-punk was a genre that died in the 90’s, but Brampton based four piece band Stockholm Siesta has proven me very wrong. They released their EP, Fixin’ To Be A Lot Better, and it has quickly become one of my favourite records of this year. The opening track, Cannibals, brings to mind bands like Blink 182 with it’s sweet mellow melody over some pretty subtly dark lyrics. Dance of the Dead shows that the band isn’t averse to playing some really fast and upbeat tunes that just make you want to move to the beat. Ask Me How is the song that really stands out to me and kind of won me over on this EP. There’s just something about that smooth guitar melody, and I’m kind of a sucker for any song with a good build-up at the end. It doesn’t hurt that the vocals are one hundred percent spot on here. The boys appear to have something in the works in terms of new releases, so stay tuned.

Feel the warmth of "Salt", new single by Golden Daze

We're caught in the sun-drenched tape echoes of Golden Daze's new single "Salt", where murmurs of Brian Jonestown Massacre, Beach Fossils, and Days-era Real Estate are hitting us in the feels. Like, so hard. Songwriting duo Ben Schwab and Jacob Loeb — who have opened for acts like Jacco Gardner, Mild High Club, and Honeyblood — reveal their love for '60s guitar jangle and endless washes of drone in this dreampop banger. 

Feel their warmth live on December 9th at The Satellite, where they'll play with Gothic Tropic and Waterstrider. Golden Daze's self-titled debut LP is set for release February 19 via Autumn Tone Records- Ryan Mo, Photo: Liza Mandelup

New Video: "Whose Side" (Live - Random Tea Session) - Little Strike

Lights splatter across the walls, adding just the right ambiance for the latest Random Tea Session with Little Strike, a.k.a. Tamar Dart. Programmed percussions propel "Whose Side" forward as Dart's vocals effortlessly expound thought-provoking lyrics, enhancing the senses. The feeling is palpable with this one. Little Strike will be performing her last show in Philly for a bit on Thursday, December 10 at Ortlieb's, helping Dogs On Acid kick off their Winter tour with Year Of Glad. However, you can also be in her music video for "Come Out Alright," which will be directed by Kyle Brown Watson and shot on Saturday, December 12 at A-Space Anarchist Community Center. Free pizza, drinks, and fun will be provided.


Invisible Familiars unveil video for "Disturbing Wildlife" + land December residency at Ace Hotel

Invisible Familiars were already pretty quirky when we covered them in depth in our 41st issue of The Deli NYC, but - to our delight - the quirkiness seems to be getting even more pronounced, with the addition of a new video that defies the concept of grotesque. The group, that operates like a collective rotating around songwriter Jared Samuel, just released this video for single "Bestial Western," one of the edgiest tracks in their wildly overlooked avant-folk debut album "Disturbing Wildlife." Will Schalda's video plays with the record's title by protraying a series of bizarre images of animals. Invisible Familiar will be playing a December residency at the Ace Hotel, do not miss! Dates here.
