A Deli Premiere: "Let's Just Go Surf" with Idle Joy

In their debut single "Let's Just Go Surf" (streaming below), San Francisco's Idle Joy wear a few different hats. The laid-back chorus of "let's just go surf instead" falls directly in line with -- you guessed it -- West Coast surf-rock aesthetics, but there's also a certain bounce (and maybe even a twang, although it's phased out in the second half of the track) that calls back to Americana influences. Not to say this is anywhere near California country, but there's definitely a melting pot of sounds that blend infectiously into an exciting single. When lead singer Tom Conneely wrote the track he said he was "thinking about his own relationship and a friend's relationship, and how easy bonds can suddenly feel the strain of external forces that compromise and complicate nice things." Idle Joy will be playing alongside Wax Statues and Killer Whale at Amnesia tonight to celebrate Wax Statues' album release.

Emily Brown transcends genre with ‘Bee Eater’

Oakland singer-songwriter Emily Brown’s LP Bee Eater is larger than life, featuring baroque arrangements and her own powerhouse voice. Wide in scope, the album moves from the vibrato-filled opener “That’s Not Me” reminiscent of the quirky vocal stylings of Regina Spektor to the heartbreaking “Beautiful Baby” (streaming below,) where Brown’s vocals swell over perceptive lyrics like “I was not your manifold lover / I was your miracled world / You and I weren’t made for each other / I’m not that beautiful girl.” Bee Eater is triumphant in its honesty and transcendent in its genre, showing there’s a lot more to the singer-songwriter than meets the eye. - Lilly Milman
