January 2016
Little Star
"Being Close
"
mp3

There's something in the rain that falls in the Pacific Northwest that seems to breed a strong sense of creativity for our musicicans. The musicians I'm specifically referencing happen to be Little Star, whose early January release is a modern call back to the college radio era of the 90's, wherein Pavement and Dinosaur Jr. ruled the airwaves. Comparisons aside, Little Star hold true to their own validity. The ten trackson Being Close are all short yet poignant, each leaving their impression on you throughout the rest of the album. Bringing the best of Olympia, Wa and melding it with the classical syles of Portland, Being Close (and Little Star in general), are indicative of just one of the many scenes our city has to offer.


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

Quiet Hollers Release Video for Unexpected Cover

 Louisville indie alt rock/country 5-piece Quiet Hollers have been garnering some serious attention after their self-titled release late last month. Their blended 10-song concoction has hints of folk, post rock and sad bastard country with strong notes of personal insight and woe. "Quiet Hollers" is definitely one of those albums best listened to on long drives in your car... where it's ok to cry. 

But the guys offer more than introspective narratives and solid hooks. They have a great sense of humor.

In response to a request made during crowdfunding efforts, Quiet Hollers have released a cover video for Madonna's "Material Girl." And it is oddly amazing. Give it a try below and catch them 12.5 at The Basement. -Caroline Bowman

TONIGHT: Yankee Blood Debuts EP "Honey" at The Stone Fox

 Sure, they call cokes "sodas" and don't put enough barbeque sauce on anything and scoff when we mention the cold weather, but some folks from above the Mason-Dixon aren't half bad. And if Yankee Blood's debut EP "Honey" is any indication, these indie dream pop carpetbaggers are earning their keep in Music City.

After years of performing as a solo folk act, frontwoman Kelly Ruth traded in her upright bass for synth pedals, met up with her creative counterparts, James Karp and Adam Verone, and together, they are putting a spin on alt pop that will satisfy a sweet tooth you didn't even know you had. With Ruth's breathy vocals atop combinations of traditional and sampled drums and a tele with a healthy amount of reverb, Yankee Blood are swirling together classic instrumentation and modern effects to create a sway-inducing sugar-rimmed cocktail. And we're ordering another round.

"Honey," put out by Palaver Records, is a 4-song Philly cotton candy daydream with radio-friendly hooks and enough depth to resonate with the sometimes-hard-to-please Nashville crowd. Come out to their EP release show at The Stone Fox TONIGHT at 8:30 pm to hear them live with The Gad Gods, Cataline Crime and Kylie Rothfield and pick up a copy. -Caroline Bowman

Sky Temple Blues Release Video for "Arrow in the Sun"

 Nashville-based vintage rock 4-piece Sky Temple Blues have bluesy psych-rock pulsing through their veins. With driving rhythms and wailing guitar riffs, the guys are pumping out high-energy Zeppelin-meets-Soundgarden tunes, and they've teamed up with 24th Frame Media to bring us their debut music video for "Arrow in the Sun."

Set in Bikini Atoll Productions' recording studio, the video captures Sky Temple Blues in their natural habitat: jamming super hard to their latest single.

After watching it, we have to agree with the band. It's badass.   -Caroline Bowman
