A Heart is a Spade: White Hinterland Visits WNYC


March 2014
Hands In
"Ployester Itch
"
mp3

Portland's Eric Crosby is blessed with musical genious. His brilliance has been showcased in various groups through the years, including Yourself & The Air, and Settlers, but his solo project Hands In is truely on point. Through a combination of loops and live perormance, he creates a blend of lo-fi psych that I could listen to on repeat for days.

The track 'Take Time Enough' off his January 2014 release Polyester Itch floats through a dreamy cloud of punching synth, sampled drums and spaced out soothing vocals that can lift the heaviest of depression on a gloomy Portland day. Listen to the full album here. - Travis Leipzig


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

Mt. Bearington Continues to Build Impressive Fanbase

Do the bands Deerhoof, Man Man, Peter Bjorn and John, or Of Montreal ring any bells? Connecticut natives Mt. Bearington has opened for all of them in their two-year reigh over the local scene, impressing with most recent release Love Buttons. They've toured the country including a small SXSW show but have recently been sticking to their area with gigs in Bridgeport, Hartford, New London, and Meriden, with a Hamden date coming up at the Outer Space on September 7th. A dreamy, shoegaze-y sound that jumps out especially in tracks like "Here's Your Mood Ring, Honey" and "Pictures", Mt. Bearington channel some hippie vibes and garage fuzz to create the sound that's going to make them big.

Outside Lands Festival Suggestions for Day Three - 8/9-8/11

Even with huge festivals like Outside Lands, there’s still a large amount of local acts that get lost in the shuffle of this fest's rock star studded line-up’s and the immense number of bands in general. While great underground local bands may be hard to pick out, it isn’t impossible. That’s why we here at The Deli Magazine San Francisco have put together a list of the 12 bands that are currently representing and residing in the Bay Area, and are making amazing music.

Here's our local underground choice for Day Three at the Outside Lands Festival:

Whitenoize | SAN FRANCISCO | Day 3 @ The Dome by Heineken Stage – 12 to 1:30 - Whitenoize is a house club style DJ that creates some killer remixes. Their recent remix of Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” keeps the familiar lyrics and feel of Timberlake’s song while mixing in a hefty amount of bass and disco melodies.

Sleight of Hands | SAN FRANCISCO | Day 3 @ The Dome by Heineken Stage – 1:30 to 3 - Sleight of Hands is a classic house DJ who blends together old samples and heavy bass and drums to bring danceable club music. The track, “All Night”, features an echoed sample with repetitive synths and a heavy rhythm section – perfect to get down to.

The Easy Leaves | SONOMA COUNTY | Day 3 @ Sutro Stage – 12:00 to 12:45 - The Easy Leaves play some good old Americana music – with country-esque guitar melodies and a heavy emphasis on vocals. Their song “Get Down” breaks down in the middle with a short harmonica solo and even back-up vocals and banjo. - Victor Casillas Valle
