Leon + the Fantastic release animated video for "Grieving Friend of a Superman"

In the new video for “Grieving Friend of a Superman” (streaming below) by the San Francisco baroque alt pop group Leon + the Fantastic, stop motion animation is used to convey an otherworldly experience. The video, directed by Japhy Riddle, follows an astronaut (played by frontman Leon Rosen) as he journeys back on Earth and is disoriented by how unrecognizable it is following advances in technology. This is the first single to be released from the upcoming debut EP Let Me Cool, which is currently available for pre-order and set to be released on May 18th. - Lilly Milman, Photo by Jenya Lum

Dick Stusso plays Santa Cruz, CA Thursday 3.08, SXSW next week

Dick Stusso is a characteras in, a fictional person. Nic Russo, on the other hand, has been crafting melodies and songs and successfully entertaining close friends and families for years. They took notice of an obvious talent, collecting live performances and stems and eventually was coerced into completing the albums Nashville Dreams and Sings the Blues. In the two years since, Russo's Stusso project has garnered lots of attention and in January 2018, the Oakland, CA based musician was signed to Sup Pop Records' Hardly Art imprint. Check out the first single from his upcoming record, In Heaven, below. Stusso plays Thursday, March 08 in Santa Cruz, CA at The Catalyst Atrium and his tour worms its way to Austin for SXSW in two weeks. - Joshua Huver, Photograph by Cara Robbins





A Deli Premiere: Roxy Rawson's single "Rounded Sound"

Bay Area artist Roxy Rawson creates jazz-influenced folk with an edge, using a fast-paced delivery and dynamic vocals to create music reminiscent of Soviet Kitsch-era Regina Spektor. Rawson distinguishes herself through her advanced techniques and grasp on music theory. The singer was classically trained in both piano and violin at the University of Paris VIII, and is now bringing her sweet sounds to the Bay.

The Deli SF is proud to be premiering her newest single, “Rounded Sound,” a singer-songwriter's take on freak folk. Listen below, and stay on the lookout for her debut album Quenching the Kill, coming out later this year. - Lilly Milman





highandfragile brings shoegaze to Rickshaw Stop (3/8)

In her own words, Oakland shoegaze solo act highandfragile is “a project founded out of desperation for emotional relief by Breannyn DeLongis.” A refreshing departure from the conventions of the genre (typically dominated by men), highandfragile’s debut EP i was not well operates within the space where angst and actualization coalesce, exploring the modern pitfalls of being a young adult—it’s angry, artful, and honest all at once. The chorus of opening track “happy birthday” (streaming below) is almost anthemic (as much as is possible for shoegaze.) In this project, DeLongis has established herself as an artist and is definitely one to watch in the future. She will be joining There’s Talk at their record release show at Rickshaw Stop on March 8th. - Lilly Milman
