Preorder CAPYAC's New Album and Listen to Their Latest Sexfunk Single Here

Last year's Deli Austin Artist of the Year CAPYAC is back early in 2016 with a new single, and the music is as glittery and spacefunky as ever. This time though, the duo shakes up things in its attempts at making this universe a sexier place with every bit of power they can muster by having Potion, an alter ego of CAPYAC instrumental magician Delwin Campbell, commanding the spaceship with his debut CAPYAC vocal performance on gorgeous track "Talk About."

Potion's performance fits right in with the CAPYAC futuresexfunk vibe, but whereas the regular crooning of P. Sugz, aka Eric Peana, is ultradynamic and soulful, Potion comes in with a more subdued yet deeply confident and damned smooth timbre that is every bit as fitting to the coolness-dripping funk vibe that CAPYAC cultivates with seeming effortlessness.

It's just more goodness from these guys, who seem to be everywhere these days with their funky boat parties, future-leaning fashion shows and Kickstarter for preordering their full-length album, and it does our groovy hearts good to know that the reigning kings of Austin music (in The Deli's eyes at the very least, and with any justice those of the rest of the world sometime soon) are at it as hard and smooth as ever with the delicious beats and funky feats.

Listen below, and if you're liking what you hear, preorder these guys' full-length at their Kickstarter here.

Caleb Groh has a little something for everyone on "Ocelot"

Ocelot by Caleb Groh is the kind of music you forget you love because not enough people are doing anything similar. There's the smooth electronic current that runs through the entire album, but Groh knows when to break convention a la the out-there folk leanings of revered freakpop headmaster Karl Blau. There's a delicate balance of being too weird for to be accesible and too vanilla to be memorable, and Ocelot confidently establishes a space for itself in the sweet spot between. -Austin Phy

Blue Healer Goes to the Zoo in their Music Video for Luminescent Eyes

Dropping their official first music video, Blue Healer throws out a heater that feels so right to listen to on a warm summer day filled with swimming and partying with friends. They call their music, “pop with teeth,” meaning a mash of pop with a garage rock sound, and Blue Healer certainly delivers the bite with the video in question, which is for their track “Luminescent Eyes.”

Made up of members David Beck (bass, guitar and vocals), Bryan Mammel (keys and vocals) and Dees Stribling (drums and vocals), the trio’s chemistry is unquestionable, with a flawless playing style that meshes just so well and highlights the strengths that each brings to the table. Blue Healer feels fresh where other bands can seem like reheated leftovers, and they carry a sound similar to Local Natives infused with influences of Bob Dylan's songwriting style, but taking that sound past the limits set by other pop artists.

Blue Healer shows their fun side and brings the raw energy from their live shows to the “Luminescent Eyes” music video, which they shot in a VHS-style fashion at the San Antonio Zoo. They start the song by laying down shimmering guitar chords that then pair with an injection of sun-bleached synth, both of which together set the tone of a song that rolls with a slow melodic pace. Tranquil vocals meld with the instruments like two clouds colliding, and overall it makes for a refreshing song to listen to when you want to relax and let the sunshine wash over you. The lo-fi video of the band exploring the zoo on just that kind of sunny day works well to give you a sense of chilled out good times, and it makes a nice match for the song's summer vibe.

Watch the video below to get in on all the fun you’ve been missing out on, and keep your eyes peeled for their first album, releasing sometime this summer. It’s sure to be one of the records you’ll want on repeat for the hot days ahead.
