Psych





Combine Raising Your Pulse at KFN March 13

Though you just lost an hour from your weekend, you can still make the most of it by coming out tonight to Kung Fu Necktie. Genre-splicing art-punks Combine provide unrelenting, spastic yet calculated drum bursts that grab hold of you, while guitars slash and stab in an unforgiving nature. The result are tunes that have a ominous presence, raising your pulse with each measure. Laying the groundwork for the evening, Combine will also be joined by shoegaze-y alt rockers Blacksalt, slow-burning LA psych-rock duo Jerkagram, and headliners Throbbing Chakra, which features Lantern's Zachary Fairbrother. All is not lost yet. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 Front St., 8pm, $6, 21+ (Photo by Diego Muya) - H.M. Kauffman





Dad Works Hard now slated to open up for Simo

Local glam rock/badass outfit Dad Works Hard has just been added to open up for Nashville, Tn psych blues band Simo tomorrow night at Dante's. The undeniably fun danceable quality of Dad Works Hard is guaranteed to bring a light and lively air to the bill. Paired with Simo's classic production of southern blues rock, it'll be a show unlike the typical shows that occur around town. 

If you haven't already, check out Dad Works Hard's video for "White Shoes" below. It'll give you some insight into just how enjoyable this band is.

Read The Deli's SXSW 2016 "PsycheDELIa" issue online! Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar on the cover

Check out the SXSW 2016 issue of The Deli Mag, now available online, and distributed in print next week in Austin during SXSW's Music Week. You'll find copies of it also at our SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space!

Yes, we've done things a little differently this time: we shaped this rag the size of a 7" record, and created a "concept" issue almost entirely dedicated to Psychedelia, with a feature by our editor Brian Chidester about how this musical genre has become more and more influential in the new millennium. The two cover artists, Yonatan Gat and Lewis Del Mar, serve as the two extremes within which Psychedelia has expanded in recent years.

As usual, the issue also gathers:

- A lot of emerging artists (mostly psych this time),
- The winners of The Deli's regional Year End Polls for Emerging Artists,
- The winners of The Deli's Best of 2015 Readers' Polls,
- A section dedicated to the SXSW Stompbox Exhibit and Synth Space

We hope you enjoy the read and get to know some awesome new music.

SF Artists on the rise: Hazel English plays The Independent on 03.23

East Bay by way of Australia dream pop aficionado, Hazel English has released a number of singles with the production of electro dream pop artist Day Wave. The musicians met at English's day job and the collaboration started after she played Wave her sensuous, home recorded pop tracks, including a rough version of debut single, "Never Going Home" (streaming). Since the release of that hazy track the duo released a series of well produced, simple dream pop gems that are a promising foreshadow to her (not yet announced) debut LP. Don't miss her show at the Independent on March 23rd. - Jordannah Elizabeth
