ENTRANCE and Bill Callahan Play Starline Social Club in Oakland - 2/4

Don't miss ENTRANCE at Starline Social Club in Oakland on Saturday, February 4th w/ Bill Callahan in support of his upcoming album, Book of Changes.

ENTRANCE's Book of Changes (out Feb. 24th) is a poetic song cycle about the seasons of the heart, tracing an emotional journey through longing and emptiness to peace and redemption. The record achieves a seamless melding of the personal, political and philosophical, a vibrant document of an artist hitting a creative stride and discovering an expansive new sound. The first single "Always the Right Time" takes the same energy of ENTRANCE's protest track, Not Gonna Say Your Name and points that energy towards the positive, grabbing life by the horns and celebrating what's most important: "It's always the right time for love".

Buzz Alert! DL is OK lands February residency at Pianos

We were glad to see Tom Petty's name mentioned in the profile notes of NYC artist DL is OK, because we were going to mention it in this blurb, and sometimes artists don't like their influences to be revealed (in particular when we get them wrong...) But, hey, there are a gazillion bands out there channeling The Ramones and Pavement, and some of them are nonetheless great and very original, just to say that influences means nothing. Point is, it's actually very easy to be original and devastatingly boring, while writing a truly good song is a heck of a lot harder, even if you wear your influences on your sleeve. As far as Tom Petty is concerned, the man is incredibly underrated among emerging indie bands, so much so that hardly anybody seems interested in referencing his music. Truth is, he wrote some of the most timeless pop songs in the history of mainstream rock, without every sounding cheesy, forced or contrived. As far as we are concerned, we need more songwriters able to blend americana, pop and rock in earnest and memorable musical nuggets the way he could. DL is OK's debut EP "Into the Flood" is a promising step in that direction - check out the titletrack below. The band just landed a residency at Pianos during the month of February, starting on the 7th.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best Roots/Americana songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!





PWRHAUS New Single, Upcoming Album

Some of your favorite local tracks may be from Anthony Schatz, but you would never know it. He's been recording under the guise of anonymity for years, with some of his albums secretly reaching heights of critical acclaim and maximum enjoyment, including from popular musicians like Fleet Foxes frontman Robin Pecknold. While those in the scene may know his face from the house shows he's thrown, everyone else will soon know that face due to his upcoming new album, due out on February 3rd.

Under the moniker PWRHAUS (or sometimes, Tonality Star), Schatz's tender concoction of ethereal dreampop, retro Motown soul and indie, topped with a witty cheekiness, is undeniably catchy. 

The newest single to come off the release, "Heartbeat," is a lo-fi reworking of a traditional love song as far as the ear can make out of the slightly droned out but definite head-bobbing beat. You can experience this track live along with the rest of the album, at his visual album release on the 8th at Holocene. Secrets, the solo project of Aaron Chapman from Nurses, and Schaus will also be a part of the soulfully dreamy fun. Take a peek at "Heartbeat" below.





Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE's Residency is in Full Effect

In conjunction with this weekend's Sabertooth Music Fest, Showdeer and Al's Den are hosting Laura Palmer's DEATH PARADE as their residency for the next six days. Though it technically started last night, many special guests will be joining in on the dark psych folk fun, led by the beautiful swoon of Laura Hopkins.

Jetlag from their recent UK tour won't stop this trio from giving it all they've got for the rest of the week, with local favorites like Nathan Baumgartner of And And And, Dim Wit, Sweeping Exits, Cat Hoch, and Bryson Cone aiding in the excitement. 

See the flyer above for a breakdown of each night's LPDP pairings. Each night is free, 21+ and starts at 7pm so if you're gearing up to head out for the night, stop by Al's Den and see them tonight with Haley Heynderickx.
