The Fader: FADER Mix: Tycho
A Heart is a Spade: Xiu Xiu Debuts New Video

November 2013
Wooden Shjips
"Back to Land

Hailing from San Francisco, psychedelic group Wooden Shjips, has just released their newest album Back to Land. The album brings together a sound crafted from inspirations that range from psychedelic music to classic rock.

The album is an entire trip in itself.  One can hear hints of 80s music, classic rock, and modern garage rock styles in the record, but they always resolve back to their classic psychedelic sound. With tracks like “In The Roses,” which brings a very spacey, low volume vocals, and a lo-fi sound that is not too cheesy or under produced. to “Ghouls,” which is a much faster, much more psychedelic rock sounding song that takes influences from classic rock guitar chords, while still utilizing classic psychedelic synthesizers.

Most songs on the album carry a jam-band sound, without becoming too abstract or getting too carried away. And in some cases, the music is so vast in genre diversity, one is surprised at the resulting sound, such as in the track, “These Shadows”, which starts off with an extremely catchy intro guitar riff and carries a vague David Bowie meets Velvet Underground sound.

“Back to Land” is a great piece of work that utilizes the potential of each member of Wooden Shjips effectively and thoroughly.

Most importantly, “Back to Land” is an experimentation of how far the psychedelic genre can stretch while still successfully staying true to its roots.

This is a preview of the new Deli charts - we are working on finalizing them by the end of 2013.

New Video: "Whore" - Moon Bounce

The always entertaining Moon Bounce aka Corey Regensburg sprung a new video on us today, and boy is it a doozie. If you have seen the video for his earlier single, “Shake” you may not be too surprised, but this clip is fantastically disturbing. The video follows a creep tyke facing his demons in a surreal series of events. The song, Whore, grinds, humps, and weaves it way through the nightmarish narrative. The twisted serenade is sweet and bitter at once. The track is off of his Dress Rehearsal EP, which is out now. Check out the video below.-Adam G.

Today, Death By Broomstick,, the new album by OhBree  is out, streaming and available for purchase. Death by Broomstick approaches pop through a dark-warped humorous lens delivering delightfully disturbing songs that will creep into your head and anchor down. Check the whole thing out below. 


Very Ape! A Night of Real Rock ft. Village at Ortleib's April 15th

Tonight three bands gather at the Ortlieb’s stage for a free “real rock” event named after a song by the realest rockers out there, Nirvana. Featured is the distortion-driven hard rock band Village. The psychedelic trio stays true to their roots and influences with classic slow, fuzzy jams.  After the release of their utter tease of a demo a few weeks ago, the band is proving how versatile they can be instrumentally. Joining Village will be Todd Fausnacht and the Well Whiskey Wind Whistlers, a band that is also true to their country blues genre. Adding in that final “rock” element, rounding out the set will be Seismic Thrust, a surfy, indie trio of childhood buddies playing a mix of catchy and experimental songs. All in all, this event is sure to please any kind of rock lover, and rest assured it will be “very ape”. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. 3rd St., 9pm, FREE, 21+– Maggie Grabmeier
