Music Video Premiere: Katie Garibaldi - Lock The Door, Lose The Key

We're excited to premiere a new music from the San Francisco based country artist, Katie Garibaldi. Garibaldi is another local artist who chooses to express herself in a more traditional music genre. With her beautiful voice and talent for musical arrangement, we always respect Katie for her hard work and well written country ballads.

I've kind of nicknamed "Lock The Door, Lose The Key" the 'newlywed song' because it's basically about newlywed business. When I go through big life moments, including falling in love and getting married, those subjects infuse themselves into my creative mind and are reflected in my songwriting. I wrote a lot of the songs on my album, Follow Your Heart during the period of my life when I was engaged and newly married. "Lock The Door, Lose The Key" is about that honeymoon phase my husband and I were in when we basically just wanted to lock ourselves away in a blissful nest and forget the rest of the world. It's become one of my favorite songs to perform live from the album because I've noticed how happy it makes people who are listening. It's a really fun story and a staple song off Follow Your Heart that contributes to the record's signature sound, so I chose this song for my first official music video to celebrate the album's one-year anniversary as a celebration of what an absolute blast this past year has been touring with these songs, and as a personal thank you to my supporters. - Katie Garibaldi on writing Lock the Door, Lose the Key

Jeff Campbell Prepares to Release New Album - The Kitchen Sink

One of the great things about the San Francisco Bay Area is that there is a diverse array of music genres to choose from. Jeff Campbell is a San Francisco based pop country rock artist who will be releasing his new album, The Kitchen Sink on October 2nd. He strays light years away from the dominate youthful garage rock style of music that you typically find in Oakland and SF and chooses to make pop country rock and roll that is fresh and all his own.

Check out his new single, Fill The Spaces and keep an eye out for his upcoming full length record!

"The song was inspired by the birth of his niece and the thought of her never experiencing an iPhone, Facebook or social media free world where people are tied to and tuned into gadgets instead of each other. The song is a message to live in the moment and fill the spaces with what’s around you instead of worrying about what’s to come and how you’re going to document it." - Jeff Campbell on his song, Fill The Spaces

Pat Maloney @ Relish

Influenced by the roots of the country without getting tangled in them, Pat Maloney blends and bashes his influences into something new, bringing us the freshness of his newest album Repotting. From his spanish-shuffle, to his anti-corporate acoustic groove, Pat brings an honest approach and some real talent on every facet of the music. From the rhythm up to the melody, the auxiliary to the forefront, every part of his songs are essential; no excess, no fat, just lean and mean. Gracing us with just the slightest hint of gravel in his voice, adds a real sincerity to his music, lyrics and overall completeness of the album. The future's looking bright for this man! Go and check him out Aug 28 in Mahtay Cafe in St Catherines, and at Relish in Toronto Aug 30th.- Cody Wright

Wildfires' Aguas Frescas (Part I) EP is Dreamy Deep Summer Music

‘Aguas Frescas (Part I)’ is the latest superb EP from Austin indie alt-rock band, Wildfires, The Deli's March 2015 Band of the Month (check our EP preview from a while back right here). This newest offering takes listeners on a surreal journey of textured soundscapes and ethereal vocals summoning up memories of shoegazing bands of yesteryears such as Sonic Youth or My Bloody Valentine. The understated vocal delivery and dreamy guitar effects present on the tracks takes audiences to familiar psychedelic terrain along with melodies that are charming, yet laconic, Wildfires draw you into their breezy hippie-fueled wall of sound slowly and effortlessly leave the indelible mark of a band acutely aware of what they are. Imagine floating down the river into the fading sunset with a cold beer in one hand and one of those wacky tobacco cigarettes in the other, and you’ll get the feel for the serene and dreamy music the group creates. Check out Wildfires’ EP, ‘Aguas Frescas (Part I), below and come back for updates on upcoming music from the band.

Northern Youth announce show at The Foggy Notion on Sep 26th

 Northern Youth, the solo project of Portland-by-way-of-California musician Luke Messimer, released a 4-song EP, "Color," this past June on Astro Lizard Records. The songs on "Color" are an assortment of folk-influenced indie-pop tracks that are reminiscent of such popular acts as Delta Spirit or Dr. Dog. "Hide You Away," the third track on the EP (streaming below), is a glistening, 6-minute composition of nostalgic melodies and lyrics fit for cruising along coastal highways, while the opening track, "Misunderstood," offers a glimpse into the darker side of Messimer's indie influences, even including some elements of punk rock. Overall, the EP offers 4, well-crafted examples of what this artist is capable of, and it warrants at least a couple of listens. As of today, Northern Youth has announced a number of upcoming shows, including one on September 26th at The Foggy Notion, so be sure to check them out! - Patrick Wolff
