DOUBLE PREMIERE: Melt - "Take a Walk" & Mister Tang - "Where You Goin?"





DOUBLE PREMIERE: Melt - "Take a Walk" & Mister Tang - "Where You Goin?"

If there's one thing Portland can seem to do right, it's produce some fun lovin', beer chuggin', good ass garage rock. Today, the Deli is premiering two new, soon to be hit singles from a couple of the best garage acts in town, Melt and Mister Tang. Both bands share a member or two, but don't think that makes them in any way the same.

Melt's single, "Take a Walk," coming off their upcoming Fun House tape, takes a fuzzier surf route to the genre, with Jeff Tang's vocals being refreshingly nostalgic to the genre's predecessors.

"Where You Goin?," the Mister Tang track on the cassette of the same name, is grittier, more raw, and straight up rock n' roll. Stone Tang delivers the lyrics frankly and unforgivingly in your face, drawing you in.

Both Mister Tang and Melt are also going on tour together in celebration of the tapes' releases, which are both dropping within days of each other. To kick it all off, a show featuring both of them, the Deli Portland Emerging Artist of the Month nominees A Volcano and a famed special guest will be happening next week, March 10th, at the Liquor Store. Cassettes and tees will be available to fund the tour. It'll be an auspiciously awesome situation for everyone involved, so be sure you're there to witness it. You'd be Better Off Dead than missing it.
